Greetings from St. Paul. Kent Youngblood here. Remember me? Former No. 2 now part-time fill-in. Russo is getting some much-needed rest and Mr. Stensaas is about to become a father. So you’re stuck with me.
Here is an update from morning skate: Brent Burns is still feeling sick and was scheduled to go back to the doctor today to figure out what’s going on. In his place for tonight’s game against San Jose will be John Scott.
And some good news: Marian Gaborik is going to accompany the team when they leave for Colorado later this week. According to the team, he will practice with the team ‘’when ready.’’ Just what that means isn’t crystal clear. But it doesn’t seem likely the team would take him along on a road trip if he weren’t at least close to getting onto the ice with the team.
That’s about all. Stay out of the rain/sleet/snow.
