 Pietila, Quenneville and Scarlett are leading the way with 6 points each, WedgeWall shouldering the load in net. Appleby got sent down the other day, so Blackwood will be this years backup. 

Will try and throw game updates into the thread when I get the time, but if anyone else gets there first then go for it.

The surgery was performed by Devils' Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jonathan Glashow, and Team Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Michael Shindle.

Wedgewood's expected recovery time is approximately 6 months."

Nice.  I don't post in here enough either.  That Auvitu goal around 2 minutes is something else - he gets a legitimate breakaway 5 on 5 (he's not coming out of the penalty box, Rochester wasn't caught on a change of lines) and scores on it.  I can't think of the last time I saw something like that in the NHL, a d man being 1 on the goalie in a spot like that where it's the right play.
