Dekanich is getting close and the net is empty and waiting for him (acutally it just seems that way when Mason is in there)
Progress!... CBJs goalie Mark Dekanich has been activated from the IR and sent to the AHL to get in some game action. He's expected to return in a few days and should be backing up Mason on Saturday night. I'd give it until 7:30 on Saturday before he's the CBJs new #1.
Anton Babchuk is on the IR with a hand injury so he'll be out for a bit... and just when he started sucking just a little less.
Sergei Kostitsyn returned last night but only played 10 minutes so I suspect he's not over his LBI yet.
Chris Pronger returned last night after missing six with that eye injury and despite the shield surely cramping his style he found a way to play 25 minutes and still mixed it up with four PIMs... so don't think this is gonna change him.
Matt Read also returned for the Flyers last night after missing three with a UBI.
Forgot to mention this yesterday... Duncan Keith returned on Tuesday night and played 24 minutes after missing the previous three due to an injured hand.
Peter Mueller (concussion) has been practicing and could potentially return tonight but I wouldn't assume anything is going to go according to plan with this guy.
Mikael Backlund (broken finger) is close to returning and could make his season debut on Friday.
