Cole Wants In
Former Clarkson star Erik Cole mentioned in a pre-game skate that he hoped to get into game six or game seven of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and that he feels like he's ready to go. His coach pretty much quashed that immediately saying that based on tests taken three weeks ago, that his season was over, but rumor is spreading that he's set to undergo another round of tests in the next day or two. If he clears those and gets medical clearance, there's still an outside chance of him hitting the ice during the Stanley Cup.
It's always tough to read hockey coaches because unlike football, it's part of the game to mask injuries and progress to protect their players, but Laviolette seems adamant that Erik won't be on the ice again this season. Still it'd be nice just to see him take an opening faceoff in front of an insane crowd.
