Notes: Both Murphy and de Haan are not going to make the opener, though they’re talking big about de Haan even though the player himself doesn’t think he’ll play. More great medical team work here. It’s likely that Lehner gets this one with Crawford getting the home opener, which is the bigger occasion, and also assures that Lehner doesn’t go weeks without playing. Crawford got the last game against Berlin.
Notes: Nolan Patrick is out with a migraine disorder for the foreseeable future…other than that they’re just about as full-strength as you can get… Farabee was impressive in camp and they’re very excited about him. He might stick all season.
