A Big Nickel, that is.
Pleasant late-October noon-hour in Sudbury. Sunny skies. Near freezing temps.
Wolves hope to have John McFarland (hip flexor) back in the lineup for tonight's 7:30 puck drop against Les Rangers.

Assistant coach Paul Fixter relayed one of the best quotes he's heard over the years to describe games-like-that.

Ah, North Bay. Now, I'm getting wistful.
