For forward Patrick O'Sullivan, watching Canes games from the press box is absolutely the worst place to be.
For the last seven games, that's where O'Sullivan has been: up high in the arena, in a suit, watching, waiting -- a healthy scratch. But that will end this week, Canes coach Paul Maurice said today, as O'Sullivan will replace Jiri Tlusty in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Ottawa Senators at the RBC Center.
"I don't have any experience going through a situation like that, so it's been really frustrating," O'Sullivan said. "At the same time, I've worked as hard as I can and I feel good on the ice. I can definitely do all the skating drills there are in the world."
