  • Today's edition of "We've got Game," co-hosted by Justin Cohn and Ben Smith, is going to have an exciting show. We will have the Komets' P.C. Drouin and, by popular request, hockey writer Brendan Savage of The Flint Journal. Use the radio button on your right. We'll try something new: If you have questions you'd like asked of any of me, Ben, P.C. or Brendan, e-mail them to Please put a name and hometown on it. The show will be a different time, 5 to 6 p.m., because I have a conflict this week. If you cannot listen live, it's not a problem. You can listen whenever is convenient, like when you're watching the NHL playoffs or fighting boredom when your boss is out of town.
