OTB: Downie’s suspension upheld, new lines in Jersey and Boston and Stars fans almost ready for summer

What team beat writers are saying early this afternoon:

  • The Bruins had some new-look lines at practice today.  Bruins better get going or the Devils/Capitals will catch them.
  • John Vogl of the Buffalo news defends the Sabres’ effort last night.  It is a big step to question a team’s lack of effort.
  • Even though the Flames have dropped three straight, Robyn Regehr doesn’t want to see any drastic changesGood leaders don’t panic, and Regehr is a great leader.
  • Are Stars fans already prepping for a summer makeoverIf Turco doesn’t get his act together, that’s probably a good plan.
  • The Oilers deserved better last night, writes Dave Staples.  They need to get Hemsky going again.
  • Brent Sutter changed lines during the Devils’ game versus the Flames and kept them the same for practice this morning.  It is hard to question any of Sutter’s decisions.
  • Steve Downie’s 20-game suspension has been upheld by the AHL. It was foolish for Tampa to appeal that suspension in the first place.

The Jets and Moose are both scheduled to practice on Wednesday.

Be sure to get all caught up before we start all over again via
