...well, just look:
I will never get tired of watching that clip.
Anyway, there is an update on #96 and #43.
But you'll have to make the jump to see what it is.
They both returned to practice! However, with a back-to-back looming tomorrow and Saturday and Sunday - they're going to be very careful about when Helmstrom returns to action in a game:
"See how I feel tomorrow, that will probably be a bigger indicator. I wasn't pushing myself too hard. Couple of times I tried to get up to full speed, but never went after it too hard. Felt good, didn't feel it at all when I was skating. If it feels unbelievable, maybe. We play back-to-back, so it's pretty tough jumping into back-to-back with this kind of injury. So maybe Saturday off and shoot for Sunday (at Chicago). But if it feels really good, then we'll see." --Darren Helm
That quote brought to you via Khan(!).
Here's what the coach had to say:
“I don't think so (Saturday), but there's another practice tomorrow, so we'll see what happens. We're set up to go without them. But they're good players, when they're available, we'll use them." --Mike Babcock
Should Helmstrom not be ready to go, here is the lineup that Detroit skated with today:
That video is one of my favorites.
I hope for a re-enactment of it every time Helm is out there on the PK. He makes me giggle almost as much as Pavs does.
i just hope helm comes back one game before homer so we can see what helm nysquist and conner look like. assuming of course they keep nyquist up and put them three together.
Here is hoping he parks Ericsson for one game and shows us what Kindl/Commodore looks like. He won't do it, but we can hope!
"with a back-to-back looming tomorrow and Saturday" - No game tomorrow. Toronto Saturday, Chicago Sunday. Otherwise I never would have accepted the free suite ticket to the Bobcats game tomorrow night. For anyone outside the 12-mile radius from the stadium, the Bobcats pretend to be an NBA team in Charlotte, NC. This is completely useless information.
Damn. Wish howie was out so hed be fresh for chi. But he can still do it. Conk's would prolly lose anyways, toronto is good now. We'll see tho. Having nyquist and conner on a line will be interesting
