Not sure what you thought but certainly I felt that last nights game had a bit more intensity and pace than the previous games.  A few interesting notes regarding tonights line-up.  You may be looking at lines 1 and 2 as they will look on opening night.  I wasn’t sure if Primeau was going to get into a game.  Could it be that if Kadri starts with the Marlies that Burke is looking for an alternative to one of Mitchell or Hanson who have not been impressive?  I’m looking forward to seeing Aulie…could be rusty since he’s been injured.  Wilson had previously stated that Kaberle would only play 1 game within the first five.  My guess is that between the cuts and 3 injuries (Finger, Lashoff, Lebda), he decided to use Kabs.  And Jay Rosehill’s knuckles get a break tonight….It will be the Brown/Orr show.  Wilson must have a # of fights mercy rule.
