In news that won't really make any real difference to the team, Corey Locke and Robin Lehner were called up to the Sens, while Jim O'Brien and Mike Brodeur were returned to the AHL. This should come as a bit of a surprise, as many thought Locke didn't have much of a shot at being called up. Perhaps his 4 point performance on Tuesday night helped his cause.
Understandably, Locke was thrilled with the chance to finally play in the show. After all, he is the AHL's leading scorer and we have a severe problem scoring, so how much could it hurt to take a shot with him. I know many Sens fans will be very happy with this move, as many of you have been emailing me for weeks hoping he'd get a shot.
The 2 players are already with the team in Boston and are expected to play Thursday night in Long Island, if the storm doesn't upset their travel plans. No word yet if they plan to give Lehner a start or not, but with 6 losses in a row, all by Elliott, it seems likely he will get one.
Thoughts on the promotions/demotions?
