    Yeah. I keep expecting to see his name linked to an NHL opening, but nothing so far.

    Both new guys in the Cherkers lineup tonight for their playoff opener in Providence. Pritchard is at 3LW with Roy and Gauthier. Matthews is 4C between Lorentz and Nastasiuk.

    FWIW, Bishop is healthy and at 2C tonight with Jurco and Necas.

    FWIW, the Checkers won game one 5-4 on the road. Geekie scored two in the opening frame and Sanguinetti got the game winner after a furious Baby Bruins comeback.

    As much as there are plenty of issues with the NHL's playoff format, the better team starting the first two games on the road in a best of five series is a head scratcher. I can see what they're trying to do in theory, but home ice is supposed to be an advantage.

    Yeah, pretty much everything about AHL scheduling is a mystery

    I'm sure it's done 100% to keep travel costs to a minimum. If you only want there to be one round of travel between the two cities, it's the only way to fairly split things in a five-game series.

    Ya it's for travel. It's normally 2-2-1 but if the distance between the cities passes some limit (that I didn't catch), highest seed gets to choose whether they want first 2 or last 3 at home, so Cherkers chose last 3.
