Bourque Scheduled To Make NHL Debut

Tim Leone of The Patriot-News is reporting that the Caps have recalled Chris Bourque from Hershey and is scheduled to be in tonight's lineup against the Atlanta Thrashers.
"I found out [Monday] night around 11, 11:30," Bourque said. "I didn't fall asleep until about 4, I was so excited. It's a dream come true. I've been waiting for this since I was a little kid. I've always wanted to play in the NHL, and now I get a chance to play my first career game. It's really exciting."
Bourque's style of play may be exactly what the team needs right now, and Caps fans eagerly await his NHL debut. Pity they may not actually be able to see it as tonight's game will not be televised here in D.C.
