BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Injuries will force forwards Justin Bailey and Dawson Cook to skip the CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game on Saturday here at First Niagara Center.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
