Gameday Updates from Greenville
February 9, 2013 | View Comments
This morning, Clones prepared for their Saturday night match-up in Greenville with a standard "morning skate."
The tempo was up and spirits were high as Cincinnati plays its first game since last Saturday.
After the skate, I caught up with Assistant Coach Matt Macdonald, Dan Eves, and Brian Foster...
Speaking of Brian Foster, he'll get the start tonight...Zoltan Hetenyi will back-up.
I know that Coach Skalde has an interest in finding a "number one" guy but with three goalies, that has been a challenge. Regardless of whether or not "Fozzie" is the official number one...he needs a big game tonight.
Cincinnati will be playing short tonight as Andrew Conboy is still serving the second game of a two-game suspension handed out last week.
Plus, today the Houston Aeros called up Mathieu Aubin, leaving Cincinnati with nine forwards and six defenseman for the match-up in Greenville. As Coach Macdonald mentioned in the Morning Skate Report, they'll find success if they can get back to playing strong in the defensive end.
