The Ottawa Citizen‘s Allen Panzeri writes about last night’s game (link) with Jason Spezza saying, “Everybody played hard against a heck of a hockey club. They made  us work for whatever we got. They took it to us at times, we took it to them at times, and we were opportunistic on our chances. They’re a team that outworks a lot of teams. They grind you down, but I thought we were right there with them all night, not giving up any ground.”

Colin Greening thinks Jared Cowen should be going as a rookie to the all-star game, “I think Jared should have definitely been invited. He’s been playing really well. He’s worked his way up to a lot more minutes, especially on the power play. To me, he’s more of a rookie than I am” (link).  Given that Greening is 25 and played a quarter of last season, his sentiments are understandable.

Joy Lindsay provides Binghamton’s expected lines: Rob Klinkhammer-Corey Locke-Andre Petersson, David Dziurzynski-Pat Cannone-Derek Grant, Mike Hoffman-Stephane Da Costa-Jim O’Brien, Corey Cowick-Wacey Hamilton-Mike Bartlett.  Mike McKenna will get the start.
