Yet all of this pales in comparison to the news that Alyssa Milano is coming out with a new NHL-inspired clothing line for ladies.
Now, I know some may be skeptical about this being considered news. I know I was at first. But, word is Ms. Milano is going to be in Atlanta this weekend for the All-Star Game. I think it's my duty as a true sports journalist to track down this story and, at the same time, Ms. Milano.
Will keep you updated as the story unfolds.
-- On the ice, some decent sized news out of Sunrise today. Looks like Cory Murphy returns tonight to run the power play, the first of a handful of Florida's walking wounded to return. Branislav Mezei could play tonight as well. Obviously, though, the return of Murph the Surf is pretty big. He was having a great season before getting hurt. Saw Jozef Stumpel today as well, he looks good. He'll be back soon as well.
-- Daniel Alfredsson returns for the Senators tonight, his hip flexor injury apparently all healed up.The Sens have been struggling with both Dany Heatley and Alfredsson out of the lineup. So here comes a little help.
-- Ray Emery back in net for the Sens tonight. He's 2-0 against the Panthers this season and 6-1 against the Cats lifetime with one shutout.
