Thanks to Kimberley Martin for covering practice yesterday, where it was unveiled that captain Doug Weight (shoulder) is set to return to action tonight against Ottawa.

Sadly, I will not be in Ottawa tonight for the game (and I say that without even a hint of sarcasm---I truly despise New Year's Eve, especially in NYC. Truly the most overrated and disappointing holiday of all), but fortunately this should be the last trip of the season that I'll be missing.

If I catch wind of anything newsworthy that happens today, I'll let you know. Otherwise, I'll check back in to do a little mid-season assessment and to provide updates after each period of the game.
