The emergency goalie is ...

If Wichita's Adam Russo cannot play tonight in Game 3 of the Presidents' Cup finals -- and I'm hearing he won't be able to -- then the Thunder will look to Bryan Hogan.

Hogan has stopped 26 of 29 shots in the playoffs.

So who would be Hogan's backup? It looks as if it'd be Scott Darling. Click here to see his stats.

As I've written, I don't think this is that big of a deal. Hogan has looked better against the Komets this season than Russo.

But if Hogan goes down, then, well, that's a different story.

Of course, Russo could be playing. I know he's in Fort Wayne, but he allegedly told some fans he's not dressing. So take that with a big grain of salt. A big one.

Russo has a concussion suffered in Game 2, a 6-3 Komets victory.
