Kessel, JVR Take the Ice in Sochi

Robert Cianflone

JVR and Kessel are playing against Chara and Hossa right now. Phil Kessel and JVR each have an assist and a couple great shots, and it's clear that "Olympic sized ice" is not incompatible with hits or scoring chances. Canada will be on ice at noon, as they face off against the Norwegian team (Price is expected to start). We'll have a GDT up shortly beforehand.

Vintage Leaf Memories - Michael Langlois: What should Dave Nonis be thinking—and doing—during this Olympic break?
"I can’t help but wonder if they just might be ready to take a run at the Eastern Conference crown" is an impressive level of optimism.

Avs’ Erik Johnson suspended 2 games for slash that broke Frans Nielsen’s hand
Didn't see a link for this when it broke, so FYI.
