First thanks to Kristin, It was very nice to meet you. It was cool trying out your camera today. I hope my pics that I took with it come out good.
Ok Practice today Nitty 1st one out 10:15
Tolpeko was 2nd!
Lines there was alot of colors today....
Red: Cote and Dowd
baby Blue: Potulny, Kapanen, Eager
Green: Tolpeko, Carter, upshall
Dark Blue: Hartnell, Briere and Knuble
Orange: Umberger, Richards, Lupul
Black: boulerice, Coburn, Fitzpatrick, Jones, Smith, Timonen, Kukkonen, Niitty, Biron
Definitely was a fast paced practice today. There seemed to be alot of room for fun. Richards Upshall got it started and it seemed to infect everyone else.
Gagne played with the Red line.
There was a pretty big crowd today.
Timonen led the stretches and made sure everyone paid attention.
Before I left I peeked in at Phantoms practice they were being skated really hard.
Scottie Upshall is on Monday night live tonight FYI!
Thanks for these reports, they are much appreciated! I see Kukkonen was able to practice, could you tell from watching if he looked like he was nursing any kind of injury since that is allegedly why he isn't playing?
Well depends on who you want to believe there was an article last week that Stevens was sending a message to the D by sitting Kukkonen then the next day it was that he is injured. He looked fine to me. Was the 3rd one on the ice.
Interesting that Lupul is back on a line with Richards. I hope that carries over into the game tomorrow, considering they had some really good chemistry going early on in the season. Lupul's scoring has taken a dive since they were broken up.
Sounds like a great day out, lots of good pics. I would suggest that maybe next time take about 50 of Biron..LOL Thanks for sharing
Hard to take pics of Biron he likes the other end of the ice. Him and Nitty Don't really switch either. My end is Niitty the other end Biron.
Is Nitty or Biron getting the start tues against the Pens? Lupul does need to pick it up, not only for the Flyers but I have him as one of my right wings in fantasy. :)
Boulerice is back?
Boulerice was put on waivers put not picked up so he went to the phantoms. not sure if the flyers recalled him though or who got hurt for him to be recalled.
