This was not the first time Dougie Hamilton had been exiled to the press box. Earlier this season he was banished for two games, and also he was sent there for two rounds of the playoffs last year. He knows what it’s like to sit and watch, and he knows, too, how to handle it.
“I’m more used to it now,” Hamilton said. “Obviously it’s not fun not playing, but I think I got to learn a lot last year through that whole playoff run, and I know more what to expect and what’s expected of me.
“Just trying to get my game to a trust-worthy playoff-[level] game in this last month or so. Hopefully I can do that and I guess earn a spot.”
