News and Notes

Gonchar will not play tomorrow against Philadelphia, according to Mark Madden on his afternoon talk show on ESPN Radio 1250.

Other notes mentioned by Mr. Madden -
- Lemieux is "questionable" - he'll see how he feels tomorrow, basically
- Thibault will start in goal
- Shane Endicott will play
- No decision on who will be sent down to make room for Endicott. Madden was afraid of what I had mentioned yesterday, namely that Eric Christensen will be the unlucky one

Madden was also highly critical of the Pens for demoting Marc Andre Fleury. He said that the team's best goalie was now playing in Wilkes-Barre, and we could be cognizant of that when going to see the team play. To put this in context, Madden is a HUGE fan / supporter of the Pens. Can't say I disagree with him. Fleury should be here and starting.
