The pace and intensity of this morning's practice was ramped up as the team prepares for Saturday's opening night contest against the Detroit Red Wings.
With two more days left to prepare for the season opener, coach Sacco addressed line combinations, among other things, in his post-practice press conference.
"The lines out there, right now, that's the way we're looking heading into Saturday night," said head coach Joe Sacco. "I really liked our last two days of practice after our golf tournament on Monday. We've had two good, hard days of practice and we've got two more days to get ready for Detroit."
The day ended with approximately 15 minutes dedicated to on-ice conditioning drills, followed by a team stretch led by T.J. Galiardi.NOTES
