It's Friday, I'm in Love

I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love
Both the Men and the Women are at home this weekend, I'm hoping to make it to 3 (if not all 4!) games . . .

Yep, it looks like Mike Davies had made his way back into the lineup. That leaves Dolan, Hickey, and Bardis out at forward -- I'm wondering if Dolan is still a bit banged up?
