Great news there, MacDonald looked shaky and unsure about his decisions last night, made a couple good saves too, but that first goal was pretty deflating...
If Osgood is indeed done for the year as many reports are suggesting, Holland needs to go out and get a competent veteran backup... I wonder what Manny Legace is up to
I'm still doubting these "rumors." I've not seen any articles stating that the team feels he is out for the rest of the season. But at the same time, there have not been many news stories since his surgery to tell how well he is progressing, so it's up in the air.
Here's a Detroit News article
"Holland expects Osgood to be healthy enough to return by March 1 and Modano by March 15."
Until I hear otherwise, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that early March is when he will be coming back.
Good to hear Jimmy will be back in goal on Thursday. I really feared the injury was worst than it has been based on how bad knee bruises usually are. MacDonald did better than I thought he would, and some of his saves reminded me of Jimmy's from last season. Although, I was getting a laugh every time Ken Daniels would shout "Oh, MacDonald . . ." when he made a great save because my mind always automatically added: "had a farm, ei-ei-oo."
I just hope Jimmy can get back to how he was playing last season and at the very beginning of this season because he really needs to carry us a bit until we start getting guys back.
