in his Back before returning As a backup a week could Start against new Jer sey saturday former starter Tom out five plus games with a strained leg has practice two straight Days without any problems and could return next the return of those veterans could sent Rookie Peter Skudra Back to the minor but nothing definitive has been decided by coach Kevin when i get sent Back to the whenever that i just Hope to stay Sharp and work hard to get Back to the National hockey and i Hope to stay longer the next Skudra Skudra was recalled 4 to replace an goalie shuffle this weekend injured Wreggit and has played in 11 nil Skudra has a 431 goals against average and save if Skudra is returned to Houston in the Ihl next Constantino will have to determine a starting goalie for games in Carolina monday and Boston wednesday night making it Likely Wreggit will play when youve been out As Long As Ive if s just great to be part of a game in any Wreggit the been in this league a number of but i still get that itch when in away from it for too Ive definitely been out too Long and in ready to Wreggit avoided Back surgery through intense rehabilitation the past two and Constantine Doest want him to have a he played just 20 seconds in new Jersey wednesday night a ploy to give the penguins Power play some rest and was quickly replaced by ski before Wreggit recorded a 131 goal against average and save per but he Only played in six games because Barrasso was on a hot his 1786 goal against average and save cent age were among the nil leaders until he was injured it was disappointing after not playing last year to be playing this year and then get Jurt and have to sit out a Barrasso but i Haven missed that Many and i Hope to be Back in another game or notes the Only penguins player to practice Friday was Forward Martin he suffered a broken foot 29 and is out at least another forwarded out since getting a broken cheekbone probably wont return until after the 18 Allstar Cowher goes far afield to motivate Steeles Pittsburgh a the Denver Broncos have two stated goals for sundays acc championship game keep Jerome Bettis out of the end zone and keep Bill Cowher off the Cowher seemed to spend As much time on the three Rivers stadium turf As his players Dur ing Pittsburgh 3524 Victory Over Denver if he want slapping High fives with he was racing close to the end zone to hug Kordell Cowher is known to stray beyond the accepted Boundary of sideline coaching decorum remember him stuffing that Pic in referee Gordon Mccartery pocket in 1995 but the Broncos Felt he was really out of to be spent far too much time in Denver defensive lineman Alfred Williams even suggested that if he saw Cowher doing it he might have to put the coach Back into his place in the coaching Box Between the 35yard i told you better get on the you better hit the Steeles defensive Back Carnell Lake Alfred Williams is a big trying to Dodge any pregame has talked Little about his game Day behave except to argue he merely exhibits the same intensity he has displayed since being hired in earlier this for he sprayed spittle in punter Josh Millers face after chasing him Down the sideline in and he kissed Stewart after a 21 Point comeback in this is a Man of Many faces and conflicting Emo an unfulfilled coach with an undeniable passion to to to the Broncos might to theres no controversy from my Cowher in being Ive never done anything to break the i dont think Ive Ever gotten a in the same Guy i was six years As far As i know this is the first time its Ever been made an but in not going to change who i Cowherd stated position differs from that of last when he acknowledged the nil office contacted him about roaming onto the Field against he also promised not to do it Cowher said his enthusiasm results in part not just from reaching the acc championship game for the third time in four but getting there with a team supposedly depleted by free agent the Steeles had to replace five former defensive starters Rod Chad Willie Deon figures and Ray seals yet have played better defensively than last they also began the season with their third starting quarterback in As Many seasons in but if the Steeles win it would be their 13th Victory of the Matching the win totals of their 1995 super bowl team and the 1994 team that lost the acc championship game at Home to san is it the most talented its hard to Cowher its been the most unselfish group weve and that made this year a very enjoyable one and a fun year to you go in with basically a Rookie Quarter and he has the kind of year Hes and a lot of new faces on yet a lot of things have been accomplished along the we still feel like theres some unfinished still some things to get one worry among Steeles fans is a significant drop off by the offence since that Denver the Steeles rallied to beat new England on the Road 2421 Only six Days but scored Only 13 Points in their past two including last saturdays 76 playoff win Over the but we played Well Down the Cowher certainly didst have an impressive win last but we got a weve played some big and hopefully we can put together our Best performance on Sun Junior High Roundup Bedford
