The Captain HAD Swine Flu

By Gary Harding

As reported by Katie Strang in Newsday, Doug Weight had the swine flu last week.  He was quarantined from the rest of the team, and is fully healthy, not contagious and stepped into the second line for tonight’s game.

Gaborik is also out – along with Blake Comeau of the Isles.  Not sure whether the latter is a health issue or a healthy scratch.

5 hours before game time – and the nerves are getting up.  Should be a blast!
