Early notes on game day…

Marc Savard is now wearing #91 on his jersey.

Nathan Dempsey is now displaying #21 on his back.

Savvy said that he has generally worn the number nine (retired with the Bruins for Johnny Bucyk) and that his daughter Isabella was born on the 9th. Savard also said he would have requested it earlier, but when he arrived in town, it was the jersey number that was made up for him, so he just stuck with it until now.

Nathan jokingly said that number 29 is for tough guys (fighters) and goalies and he is neither. He also said that he had worn 21 for most of his life.

Just to reiterate…
Tim Thomas should be the starter this evening. It is his third start in a row and he is 1-2-1 with a 3.33 GAA and a .897 SV%.

Marco Sturm is going to play. He has played in 5 games and has a 1-1-2 line.

Andrew Alberts will play, as well. He is 0-1-1 in six games played.

Mark Stuart will not play, but may be sent to Providence to get some game conditioning, shortly.

Brad Stuart is practicing with a splint, but is not ready to take the ice in a game.

Hopefully there is some way to pick up the lines for this evening at the pre-game skate, but if not, we’ll post them at game time.

Off to the skate.
