He worked with different tape jobs. Like a mad scientist, he experimented, took his creation to the outdoor rink for a test, and then scurried back home to continue his work.

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

They had some injuries after a 3-1 win in Calgary Wednesday, and they needed to work out whether or not Andrew Cogliano was good to go or not. They brought in Rhett Gardner as insurance, and also had to make a decision on whether or not Roman Polak would be able to play just his second game of the season after missing 19 games with a sternum injury.

So they skated 13 forwards and seven defenseman in warm-up and then decided for the game that Gardner and Polak were both in, and that Cogliano and Joel Hanley were both out.
