Opening night warmups

By Gary Harding

Gervais is scracthed tonight, along with Jack Hillen.   Ricky will be in nets, of course.  Dallas is coming off a big win in Newark, will be going with Lehtonen for the second straight night.  It looks wierd seeing the Stars without Marty Turco in net (Chicago) and of course, Mike Modano is ‘home’ in Detroit.

The crowd in the parking lot was energetic and excited.  Lots of jerseys and loud fans – hoping for a good win to start off the season.

Will be blogging for each period, and also will be tweeting.
