I'm here to talk about Alex Auld! Dallas tried to recall the 29-year-old backup on re-entry waivers, and we grabbed him first. So, Johnson goes to Hartford with Zaba, and Auld become a real backup goalie. That's good news!
Gaborik may or may not remain injured. He didn't play at all in the third period of the bronze medal game his Slovakian team ended up losing to Finland. It's an "undisclosed lower body injury." No word on what that means. I'm hoping it was just his gash re-opening, and that we maybe actually give him real time to rest. Otherwise, it could be something worse. We'll see how that goes.
Bettman's Hockey comes back with one game tomorrow night, the Wings in Colorado at 9. It's back in full force the following night, with 24 teams in action, including us in Ottawa at 7:30. Let's Go Rangers.
