"Zito. Good when I was on the airwaves for lighting power play. We're talking about podcast in the lineup and getting closer. So Andrei Pohlad, apparently he maybe looking at the weekend. It's it look John Cooper. Let it slip a little bit this morning. He didn't rule it out. He said it's more of a day to day thing now with Andre. A lot. That's an ankle edge. Right foot injury. Yeah. Some you know somewhere in that. You know, it's it's I think it ended up being a fracture. I don't think the team has ever officially announced that I think it ended up being a slight fracture in the foot. But he was out on the ice this morning with the only skater was a full Moines state. It was not an optional. Because it did not practice yesterday. He was not wearing red no contact jersey, which which tells you a lot players are a little bit. Away from returning and no-one John Kufuor was asked about plot sworn in. He said it's kind of a motor a day to day situation right now now with this organization they usually err on the side of caution. We've seen that with plenty players coming back from injury atom. He's playing very well. Right now. So you don't have to rush. You don't have to Andre Polat should not feel rushed back in the lineup. But if he's ready to play he's ready to play. So we'll we'll have to monitor that to see how it goes through the weekend with Friday and Sunday. Well, let's have followed. It comes back to play with. Who sits? That's that's why the coaches get paid the big bucks, man. Well, they'll sell yourself short in that area. There. Be like. Used to cover the Rangers for the new York Daily News. Now, you you coaching tonight. Pat is what John Tortorella always ask him..

"Here, especially after a. Thanks. Thanks for staying. We'll we'll eventually get some snacks or something. We weren't expecting everybody show up here, but quick programming note. We do not have a player guest tonight because the team is getting out of Boston had now to Orlando. They're going to have a nice team bonding day off tomorrow in Orlando. And of course, practicing and getting ready for Thursday's game against the Panthers at Amway center, and then in Orlando even for one more day to get another practice under their belt before heading south to conclude the preseason in sunrise against the Panthers on Saturday night. But, you know, Bryan before we talk about some individual performances, and we'll hear from John Cooper later on in the program. You know, you don't want to get to uptight about a preseason loss. It's tough way for the team to lose the game here. But even in the preseason, some lessons that can be learned especially for some of the young players or maybe even some of the veterans just a nice little reminder going into the regular season. Couple of things that you thou shall do. Even if the games don't count in the end. Yes, that's true. A maintaining the tempo for one thing they had things pretty under control for two. Periods of first period was terrific. I mean breaking point was the best player on the ice. He drove the net. What four times it could have been? Brayden three Florida nothing after the first period and Rymer was really good Rymer made a lot of good saves in this game. But you know, leader a lot of good things. And then in the third period. They just you know, they lost their tempo in Florida really picked it up, and they really took it to them. So you know, those three three goals in fairly short space time for Florida, relatively speaking. You can't let. The game get away from you like that. So yeah, it's a reminder for for the experienced players. They just sort of fell off a little bit there there. Yeah. There were some some pretty good performances at at the same time. You never like to see a loss whether it's preseason or regular season. So they'll be working on that. I I love this whole situation though, that they're playing Florida three times in a row once more on Thursday in Orlando and then Saturday as you said in in in my in in Miami at their home and then to start the regular season was the same thing last year and game we played two or three times in preseason same thing. So there was great stuff going on in game one of the regular season. I kind of like that. So I'm sure it's going the same way because there was a little pushing and shoving going already in this game here tonight. That's good. Yeah. And we should add Nikita kucherov did leave the game sometime. Either late in the first period didn't come out in the second lower body injury was the official terminology from all. All indications and reports nothing serious, we can presume I never I never saw anything. I never saw we asking in between periods up and down in the press box. Nobody nobody saw anything. So so we can presume perhaps precautionary, but we'll certainly keep an eye on that. Now, win something like this happens. It does open the door of opportunity for players. And I thought you were talking about branding point. Yes, he had an outstanding first period in particular, but really the entire game. But with the coup shout, let's slot in Matthew Joseph here along with Andrei Pohlad. And I'm watching that line go about buzzing about especially in the second period. But keeping the, you know, the the energy and the third is well, and I thought something that you brought up in our last show. Yeah. Yeah. Sometimes the coaching staff is just slotting certain players, you know, that you may not be together in a normal game situation. But what if we had to put this guy with this pair, or what have you and boy, Matthew Justice had an outstanding camp? And he's certainly making an argument to stick around with the team when the regular season starts next weekend. But boy, he just fit in. You know, putting on an old pair of shoes just seemed like he was destined to play with those guys. We we've liked him since the very beginning. As you Joseph has made an impression I thought he was really smart in the first period he came out with a lot of speed, which he has four check. And he you really hit a couple of guys pretty hard along the wall to and so you know, if you are trying to make an impression yet noticed. The sound of the boards on the glass that will get the coaches attention to go. Yeah. That was that was him again. But he he does up terrific speed. And when you can slide up and down the line up a little bit. They're going to test them in certain situations. So yeah, when coach went down he he slotted up there a little bit. I really don't know. I keep going back and forth. I don't know what they're gonna do about to fourth line. You know, we talked about this the other day when we're here. There's a couple of different ways they could go, and that's the good news. And what you see at the beginning to start the season is not necessarily the way. It's gonna look maybe even a month down the down the road. Are you going to go with speed and youth? Are you gonna go? You know, I don't know with more size somebody who can go out there and bang around about. Adam Ernie had a good game. What a great goalie scored or he he ripped out one top shop. And that's that's always a great sign because one of the things they certainly want is more scoring on the fourth line. And so when you can show they've got hands like that. And taking a situation and score a goal. That in the top shelf that was really good for atom. So you got Joseph and you got Ernie guys that we've talked about before. And then you've got Dan Martell who got picked up on waivers the other day, boy, he can scoot. He's fast. He's not very big. But he's fast, and he's got some Merican league experience. So. Again and another option, you know, he's going to get in quickly on the four check. That's a an opportunity as well. I thought Stevens did a good job again to they he seems even better on the wing than he does at center because at first I watched them, and he's been a center a lot of the time and Stevens has come with a reputation of being pretty fast. And he's very smart. He's the one that was there all-star he played in Syracuse last year, and he ended up there. They're all star at the all star game. So obviously, he's smart had a great year that speaks for itself, but they were talking about why he he's really fast. And I kept thinking back on some of the game's going. I didn't really notice, you know, his speed. So they moved them to the wing a little bit more. And so now, he's more one of those guys that has bursts of speed, which is the way you have to play on wing whereas it center, maybe he would just constantly on the move all the time. So you didn't notice his speed at least I didn't. So I know. Noticed a lot more when he plays the wing, and you have to have those births and got in. So I thought his last two games have been really good. So you know, he's another option because he can play both center and wing so JT Miller was good. He had a couple of points early in the game. I his pack protection and making plays. That's one of the things. I love about the guy we talked about it. So many times last year really good in a crowd in just a fenced holds onto the puck. So well throws it out to somebody else has already attracted two or three guys towards him. He's he's really quick to think JT's down about ten pounds, and he's really quick and shooting the puck. Well, so again, you know, some really good performances rally how many times Israeli of a bad game. It's kinda like Brayden point. There's not many times we say, well, jeez. You know bregman was bad today. I don't I don't remember saying that last year, you know, you'll just say, well, he didn't notice him as much. There's a difference between bad and not noticing. It's much sorelle. He's kind of. The same thing. I mean, he's always working hard. He's about seven or eight pounds heavier too. So that's going to help him a lot because just a sheer extra weight will help you when he hits more than you than you think. And it takes a lot of effort to do that. When you don't have much weight behind you. So now with that little extra poundage, he can inflict a little more pain, and it doesn't take as much effort to do it. So that's that's a good thing for for serenity to one of the many observations we made during the short window of time. We got to see Anthony Sarah Leah basically the last quarter of the season. So while he's got a little bit of everything you just puts on a few more pounds than he's going to be the complete package because you know, he certainly not afraid to get into the dirty areas to know play or keep a play going. But you're right. You get just a little more of that muscle. And that's something that can go a long way for him. Because I was looking at dots after noon hit he only played eighteen games when he got called up, and he just stock and eleven points in eighteen games that that sure. That's not bad not bad ever. Just got called up from the American League. And just they couldn't send them back. Yep. So great impression, and he has no intention of going back now either you can see that. It's great. And that makes the the options very interesting, and I wanna talk about one option after we hear from one of the goalscorers tonight. Adam Ernie joining a lightning insider dot com. Eric Irwin and lining locker room right now..
