Race to the Sin Bin (Apr 5)

Did that Flames/Ducks game sew up the final standings in the PIM pool? Troy's team was knocking down a few minor penalties here and there through the action last night, as Matt Martin, Mark Borowiecki, Cody McLeod and Matt Dumba had all picked up minors and things were going so good.

Then all hell broke loose in Anaheim and Marcie's team cashed in with 26 minutes in penalties between Michael Frolik and Ryan Kesler, while Troy tried to keep pace with a fighting major from Josh Manson.  So, with that being said, the lead is now back up to 57 minutes and time is really running out, especially with a light night in the schedule on Wednesday night.

Troy's team outnumbers Marcie's team tonight, but there isn't much going on here at all.  Troy has Dmitry Orlov playing for the Capitals and Sam Reinhart playing for the Sabres, while Marcie has T.J. Oshie for the Capitals and at best, either team can only really hope for a minor penalty out of these three.  Okay, they can hope for a whole lot more, but expectations should remain very, very low.

With 12 games on Thursday, 14 games on Saturday and 10 games on Sunday, these are the days that will make the biggest difference.
