"It's exciting...it's a lot of hard work to get ready for this...I just want to help this team keep winning, keep rolling"
Steve Zipay tweets that Michal Rozsival (ribs) is out of tonight's line-up meaning Ryan McDonagh will make his NHL debut tonight against the Dallas Stars.
McDonagh had 1g, 7a in 38 games for the CT Whale this season.
...on Twitter @ScottyHockey was saying lining McD up against Richards and Eriksson could be a tall order for the rookie, and while it will be you've got to start the kid somewhere.
