On the Beat: The Lines Remain the Same

What team beat writers are saying late this morning:

  • The NHL says there is “no Ryan Miller situation.”  Fair enough.
  • The Flames are playing better as of late and Mike Babcock has noticedThe Flames look to make it a very successful road trip with a win tonight in Motown.
  • The lines from Blue Jackets practice today can be found here. Top two lines remain the same.
  • The Wings line combinations from this morning’s skate can be found hereFor all the talk of new lines, those look like the ones we’ve seen for most of the season.
  • Rick Tocchet responds to Melrose’s comments.  Tocchet wasn’t going to sit idly by and take that criticism.
  • Both Tom Poti and Alexander Semin could suit up tonight for Washington.  Honestly, how much contradictory information have we read about Semin’s injury?

Update: Joe Sakic out longer than expectedTough news for Sakic in what may very well be his last NHL season.
