Had the Xcel Energy Center all to myself late this morning. Fun as that sounds, it’s not too interesting at all. Now, if I had put my skates in the trunk of my car this morning, it would have been faaaaantastic. Alas, I was equipped only with a notebook and a tape recorder. And when you’re told “practice canceled” two minutes after the scheduled start time, that doesn’t do you a whole lotta good.
The team just worked out today. I only saw Foster, Sheppard, Zidlicky, Nolan and Belanger milling around. Everyone else was either gone or in the back, where media no can go.
The team said there is no updates on any injuries, and they’ll get back at it with a full practice tomorrow morning.
By the way, you all will be able to see Friday’s game on TV. The game originally was not on the air, but KSTC Channel 45 has picked up the telecast. A live pre-game show will start at 6:30, followed by the game. This means 80 regular season games will be on TV this season, the most ever.
And while we’re talking broadcasts, Russo Radio will be on at 6 p.m. THURSDAY this week because of tonight’s Twins game.
