Joseph comes through for Wings

Via: Booth Newspapers

‘Joseph, assigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins on Friday after clearing waivers, was playing cards in the back of the bus Tuesday on the way to Cleveland when Wings associate coach Barry Smith called. Dominik Hasek (groin) and Manny Legace (knee) couldn’t play, forcing an emergency recall. When he arrived in Cleveland, Joseph and rookie Jiri Hudler loaded their bags in the back seat of a rented Cavalier and drove three hours to Buffalo. “That was the last car they had,” Joseph said.’
