Race to the Sin Bin (Mar 12)

Wes' team wasn't the favourite on Friday night, but somehow they were able to put four more minutes back between themselves and Derek & Dan's team.  For those not following along, that means the lead is back up to 28 minutes in penalties, not an overwhelming total, but still a good gap.

It's almost time to get going this morning, so we'll quickly outline who's who on both sides and see where the chips fall.

For our leader, Wes, he'll have a good group of guys, but his roster is cut short by injury and suspension today, not to mention one of his goons in the minors (and suspended, at the same time!).  Cody McLeod of the Avalanche, Jordin Tootoo of the Devils, James Neal of the Predators, Travis Hamonic of the Islanders and Kevin Connauton of the Coyotes, all set to go on this busy night.

Things don't look too bad for the challenger, as Derek & Dan have a few more players for a bit more help tonight.  Chris Neil of the Senators, Evander Kane of the Sabres, Shane Doan of the Coyotes, Justin Abdelkader of the Red Wings, Zack Kassian of the Oilers and Noah Hanifin of the Hurricanes are all set to play.

This pool definitely has some life left in it, for sure!
