Thursday's Dump & Chase: Off to Winnipeg!

Robert Cianflone

Are all the games against Winnipeg? It sure seems like it. We'll take it though...any games against the truly awful teams are much appreciated. In case you weren't aware, the West is pretty competitive this year, with FIVE teams who would be first in the East. Too bad we couldn't get in on that realignment, huh? Hopefully the guys can keep squeaking out the wins...we're gonna need 'em.
