Countdown to Game 7: Bergenheim 'doubtful'

By Danny Picard

BOSTON -- Tampa Bay Lightning forward Sean Bergenheim skated with theteam during Fridays morning skate at the TD Garden, and while hes made someimprovement, coach Guy Boucher considered him doubtful for Friday nightsGame 7 against the Bruins.

Its optimistic for now, said Boucher. Its better . . .He made some improvement, to an extent. But I think well have to wait and see.

On the morning of Game 7, Mark Recchi was the only Bruins playermissing from the team's game-day skate at TD Garden. Recchi, at age 43, generally skips the morning skate to conserve his energy for the game, and is expected to play.

Wednesday, Jan. 18: Landeskog wants to stay in Colorado

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading while thoroughly enjoying Nick Offerman co-hosting on the Today Show this morning.

*Gabriel Landeskog knows his name has been mentioned in trade rumors with teams like the Bruins, but he wants to stay with the Colorado Avalanche.

*The New York Rangers are facing a goalie crisis for the first time in 11 years as Henrik Lundqvist is beginning to show signs of hockey mortality.

*PHT writer James O’Brien has the New York Islanders seeking to speak with fired Florida coach Gerard Gallant about their new opening after firing Jack Capuano.

*Ondrej Pavelec has been brought back from the AHL to Winnipeg to rescue the Jets from their goaltending situation, and he wants to stay for as long as he can.

*Rene Bourque has reached the 700 game mark in his NHL career with the Colorado Avalanche, and he hopes to keep it going.

*Young star Jack Eichel’s hunger for greatness could certainly lend itself to a leadership role with the Buffalo Sabres

*For something completely different: Hollywood is thinking of rebooting “White Men Can’t Jump” and this is simply the worst idea ever. I’d rather watch a movie with Woody and Snipes 25 years later than a lame reboot.
