What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:
- Maxim Afinogenov will be a healthy scratch tonight for the Sabres. He’ll be traded pretty soon I bet.
- The Bruins are set to unveil their new third jerseys on Monday. Stop with the third jerseys already! Has anyone seen the new Dallas third jersey? Is that a joke?
- Speaking of the Stars, they really seem to miss all of their defensive contributors from last season, writes Mike Heika. Couldn’t agree more.
- Kevin Weekes gets the start tonight for New Jersey when they play the Islanders. Clemmensen played last night.
- Is a Michael Nylander trade close to getting done? Sure the Caps don’t need Nylander, but do the Blackhawks?
