THIS AFTERNOON’S GAME WILL BE BROADCAST ON
NBC
FACE OFF IS SET FOR 12:30 PM (EST)

JORDAN STAAL
yesterday, Staal was fined (the max allowable – $2,500.00) by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety for his hit on Flyers defenseman Brayden Coburn during the second period of the game against Philadelphia; he was also penalized with a minor penalty for boarding by the officials during the game

luckily, Staal was not suspended – that’s all this team needs (to lose another player when they’re starting to trickle back into the lineup); we need everyone we have!
