Yes, fans, you can watch: MSG Networks is planning 11 am. to 1 p.m. live programming from the training center.  Saw production truck outside yesterday.  So please be sure to share your observations here and on Twitter @stevezipay.  Replay later tonight.

1:   Reunion of first liners Hagelin-Richards-Nash; haven't worked together since Richards went down with the flu Sunday. Story on the tireless Richards, who says Hags has improved, in paper today.

2.  Arrival of RW Brandon Segal, summoned from Hartford yesterday, presumably to play on fourth line vs Boston, with Arron Asham serving final game of his suspension from playoffs. The other Brandon in the news last night, Mashinter (the big boy/masher acquired from Sharks for Tommy Grant) will report to Hartford. 

3.  Who's on the fourth d-pair?  Guessing Bickel will be with Del Zotto, and Eminger and Gilroy sit.  Side note:  Keep tabs on waiver wire as well. Teams have to set 23-man rosters by 3 p.m. Friday.

4.  Lundqvist rounding into form. Again, have written that I believe he will play both games this weekend. Why not? Need points.

5.  Enjoy the pace and the hitting, which have increased each day.  Team was off ice yesterday, perhaps one of those "recovery" days that Torts has described as importnat through the season.  There will be another practice Friday morning before flight to Boston.
