He is, and if you really want the most up-to-date preseason coverage, he's blogging like a storm at Fire & Ice.
The Devils lost last night's preseason game to the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 in Trenton. Tom Gulitti has coverage on this here
and the initial aftermath here. Pookie and Schnookie at Interchangeable Parts also saw the game and weren't so pleased
. Not that a loss to the Flyers can directly cause anything remotely known as being pleased. That said, it's a preseason game, and the first one, so I wouldn't put a whole lot of stock into how well the team has played. Lines, styles, plays, and so much more will change between now and the start of the season in October. I mean, check out the opening lineup, per Gulitti's blog
(see, told you he was on fire). Martin Brodeur, Patrik Elias, Brian Gionta, Paul Martin, and Dainius Zubrus didn't even go to the game; and the lines are experimental at best. Nice to see Petr Vrana and Rod Pelley get time at center, though. The Devils practicing with Clarkson on the second line and a more skilled fourth line (Rupp-Brylin-Bergfors) is interesting.
