Federko Shines In Brief Blues Captaincy

ST. LOUIS—Team captain Brian Sutter In’t the most talented player on the Hues’ roster, but he surely is the hardest lorker and the most respected. When the left winger was knocked out the lineup because of an injury sufired against the Boston Bruins on Nov. everyone in the Blues’ organization—the owner to the receptionist—was ger for his recovery. Nobody, however, was more eager an Bernie Federko. Sutter’s injury was originally diagnosed as a hairline fracture of the pelvis and he was expected to be sidelined for two to three weeks.

The skyscrapers of Manhattan rose into the sky behind the bus, not in front of it. “Doogie,” called Nick Polano, his patience wilting, “can you come up here and help this guy?” Ron Duguay made his way to the front of the bus and, after a few quick instructions—a right here, two lefts there—the bus was back on course. That’s the kind of year it’s been for Ron Duguay in Detroit. The Red Wings expected a lot of Duguay when they acquired him from the New York Rangers last June and he hasn’t let them down.
