Anybody know Bjugstad's situation? Hopefully it's nothing that will keep him from next weekends series or further.
That is the great thing about our depth. Rolling 4 lines all games leaves our other big players fresh enough and our depth players strong enough to be willing to keep a guy like Bjugstad on the bench as a precautionary measure even in a close, important game.From the STrib:
"There is no sense risking anything for the last period of hockey this weekend."
Also hope Lucia rests Patterson Saturday night. He looks like he's on his game again, but he's played a ton. If he would get hurt down the line, it would be nice if the back-up had at least one game under his belt.Thanks Bleed. That's great news. It's a good thing we can give him some rest.
That would be good to give him some rest, but I think Lucia might keep him in just to not break up his streak.Also hope Lucia rests Patterson Saturday night.

I agree. Even if we wrap up the one seed on Friday, Saturday's game is still important due to the volatility of the PWR. You gotta dance with who brung ya.this is patterson's year. there is no way they are gonna take him out. He had to wait patiently behind Kangas for the majority of his college career so I would bet that he wants all the playing time he can get.
is it the right decision??? yes. I said from the beginning of the season that this team will only go as far as Patterson will take em and by golly we need this pony to cross all the finish lines. keep em in.
