LA Kings send Johnson and a 1st round pick to Columbus for Jeff Carter.
Poor Jack. Not only is he getting traded to a crappy team, he's in a horrible city.
Puck drops at 7:30ET. At stake is the home streak (going for 24) and sitting alone at the top of the NHL/Western Conference. Two points for the Canucks tonight and they tie us up. Datsyuk is still out tonight, so we need production from elsewhere.

Merrill's offensive contributions continue to be significant, but it's his increased focus on the defensive end of the ice that is equally notable here.

His solid defensive zone play, particularly in one-on-one situations, is also showing some improvement as well.
EDIT: Lee Moffie and Greg Pateryn are also listed as "Other Notables"
Just getting the word out...
But there seems to be a lot of tickets still available for the Mich/BGSU game Friday and Saturday. I will be heading down on saturday night. I know BGSU is the doormat of the CCHA but $20 after taxes and fees seems decent for center ice tickets if your in the area.
MGoBlue just added the annual garage sale onto their list of events
For those who have went before, do they sell the practice jerseys there? If so, how much are they typically priced?
