I talked with Brad MacMillan and Mitch Woods today about the false rumor that they fought in practice Tuesday. Both players were a little offended about the rumor.
``I didn't even know about it until my dad called me and asked, and I didn't even know what he was talking about,'' MacMillan said. ``I'm not that type of guy where I'm going to fight a teammate. He'd have to really push my buttons, but I've got pretty thick skin. If it was anybody, it'd probably be Rodgy.''
Of course, Keith Rodger was sitting in the locker room a few feet away egging MacMillan on.
Woods just laughed and said, ``It would take about seven seconds for that to end with the kind of shape I'm in now.''
Mitch is definitely back and having a good time, but it's going to be a quite a while before he's going to be in game shape. Right now he's trying to regain his wind, but he stayed after practice working with Rodger.
Right now the lines are Chaulk, Shafranov and Syroczynski; Thomas, Drouin and O'Connor; and the third line is Varone, Chwedoruk and Schrock. The fourth line is Warner, MacMillan and Woods. The defensive pairings continue to be Bertram and Rodger, Dupuis and DeAngelis and Dankovic and Phillips with Woodard as the extra guy.
Congratulations to P.C. Drouin and his wife Michelle who welcomed their second son at 12:46 a.m. on Tuesday night. Noah Parker is 7 pounds, 8 ounches and 21 inches long.
