Bad news: Lucic is injured, after playing just a few games after returning from another injury. Out for around four weeks with a sprained ankle from the Minnesota Wild game Wednesday.
Good news: I'm disappointed he might not be here for the Bruins @ Blackhawks game Dec. 18, but I've realized that's kind of the can't-miss game for me as someone who's a fan of/half-assed blogger for both teams. I just checked tickets and saw a single ticket $8 cheaper than the one I thought I'd have to get came up, and I got it! (Also, watched the Bruins history DVD last night and was pleased to realize I already knew almost everything on it--but it's a nice DVD to have around.)
Probably awesome news: NEW BLACKHAWKS THIRD JERSEYS ON SALE TODAY. How'd I miss the build-up to this? Here's a very nice write-up at Hockey Blog in Canada.
Fucking hilarious news: I first read the Lucic story on nhl.com, and when it appeared it had a great typo in it (hint: at the end). I wonder if they'll fix it...
