The men behind the curtain have recalled Phoenix Copley from the Hershey Bears to act as the backup goalie in tonight’s game against the Red Wings.
At the end of the game on Tuesday against the Stars, Holtby went down awkwardly on a play and was pretty slow to get back up. He stayed in the net for the rest of the game, but since then he’s taken a maintenance day yesterday, and then today they announce this….
Holtbae, no. You’re not allowed to be injured now. You were just coming back off a head-space sabbatical, and the friendly competition between you and Grubi was going to be the key to getting us through the playoffs. Dangit.
Hope you heal soon, Holts. Until then, In Grubi We Trust.
