Higgins waits for OK

It appears that Christopher Higgins will be back in the lineup tomorrow night when the Phoenix Coyotes visit the Bell Centre. He skated yesterday with Robert Lang and Sergei Kostitsyn but a final determination on his status won’t be made until tomorrrow morning after he meets with the team’s medical and coaching staff. 

"He had a good practice and we’ll see how he feels tomorrow morning,’ said coach Guy Carbonneau.

 In any case, Guillaume Latendresse will continue to play on a line with Saku Koivu and Alex Tanguay. Latendresse has a goal and four assists in his first four gamees. 


Defenceman Francis Bouillon is also awaiting but he’s doubtful for tonight’s game. He and Mathieu Dandenault formed the extra defence pair at practice yesterday. Carey Price will start in goal.

    Living on Vancouver Island,I don’t know if I could handle Plecs,Tang,Tit’s cause that’s the sound my metal roof make’s all night long when it rains “all winter long” ,lol

    I think Kosto is a beast, my only reasoning for picking Begin over Kosto is that Begin is a left shot and Kosto a right. I think BGL can play both wings, in which case Kosto could be inserted on Max’s right.

    chipchura would be a good fit in jacques lemaire’s team…let’s work something out!

    if we have to give any roster players that are not kostopoulos, bouillon, o’byrne, begin, latendresse, or lapierre…forget about it…

    but we have our top 9 solidified already…gaborik is of first liner quality…but who gets bumped to the fourth line? higgins?

    don’t think gaborik fits into our plans although he’d be a perfect fit for our style.

    I think Kosto will plays. I hope Carbo doesnt sit him.

    Glad that Higgy is closer to returning and that Lats will stay with Koivu and Tanguay. Lats has come ready to play this year. I’d put in:

    Higgy-Lang-SK74 (what a line!)
    Bench: Kosto, Dandy

    I’d also bring up Weber for Breezer!!
