Also has a recap of tonight's game.


Greg Logan has an interview with captain Bill Guerin, who is working his way back from shoulder surgery but has not been cleared to play. He discusses how the rookies will have to pull their own weight, but that this team is in "win-now mode" as he shares his thoughts on the new coach and how he should produce more regardless of his age.

NYI Fan Central Comments

That sounds nice and reads well from Bill Guerin, but last year, when this team fell apart, the veterans were outworked by the kids, and this was visible far too many nights. If he got on anyone, it was behind closed doors.

He is absolutely correct in that he can and should produce more, though, because clearly he still has hands and an ability to find the net when in the right position.
