What The Heck Are They Doing Here?

Seen at the morning skate at Kettler, Karl Alzner and Tyler Sloan. Neither started in the Hershey Bears' win last night as they took a 2 games to 0 lead over WBS baby Pens.

Both were held out of the line up last night due to what the coaching staff called "illness." There might be some concerns that some of the defensive core are hurting a bit for the Capitals. John Erskine took a slap shot to his ankle that stung him a bit late in game one. Tom Poti could also be hurting.

The two could be here for a "just in case" scenario, and neither Alzner nor Sloan looked very sick right now.

Didn't notice Alzner out there, but Sloan got a good amount of time, including some time on the PK.

Alzner was a scratch. But Sloan played really well. He got the primary assist on Steckel's goal and played simple and solid.
