By the time you read this we will be on the bus headed to Raleigh with Paul and Denise McCann and about 60 others on the SlapShot Radio road trip.
Updates may be limited this weekend due to lack of internet availability. We will report as we can. It's always an odd situation on road trips that you get to be at the scene of the game but sometimes it's difficult to report.
Take note that tonight's Pres-Canes game is one of six contests that start at 6:00 p.m. Central and are all considered to be the NHL's 50,000th game. Here's more on the first 50k NHL games.
Hopefully this is good information from @CVHD: Our feed will also be on Center Ice on Saturday. Check the Center Ice schedule to see if the Jumbotron feed is indeed there.
Dirk Hoag speculates on who will fill David Legwand's shoes (or skates) tonight in Raleigh. The easy solution is to put Spaling in the line-up and drop the puck.
Amanda DiDaolo is also on the trip and filed this pregame report.
We also send condolences to the family of former coach, Pat Burns, who lost his battle with cancer yesterday. He was 58.
