First, some news:  Desjardins only got fined for boarding Sami Lepisto, no suspension.  Thank goodness, don’t need the lower lines destabilized right now.  Also, Terry Murray got fired.  Maybe not a lot will change with the Kings since his place is being filled by AC John Stevens.  We can hope.  Also, Nitty is off IR and going to Worcester for conditioning. “Out of gas...
