A Win In Seattle For The Vancouver Canucks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet,

After Seattle waited 97 years for the return of the National Hockey League, the Vancouver Canucks made the expansion Kraken wait at least one more game for their first home win.

In a deafening stadium, dug out from beneath a protected landmark roof in the shadow of the Space Needle, the Canucks earned and then eradicated a third-period deficit, scoring three times in the final eight minutes to beat the Kraken 4-2 in Seattle’s home opener at Climate Pledge Arena.

It was the first meaningful visit by an NHL team since the Seattle Metropolitans folded in 1924.

Saturday’s win for Vancouver was the rebirth of an old hockey rivalry.

“A blast, that was a blast,” Canucks winger Conor Garland said after fooling goalie Philipp Grubauer on the winning goal with 4:02 remaining. “I remember my first game in Vegas was actually a pre-season game and it was the loudest rink I've ever been in. This was pretty close. That was fun.”


Game highlights can be watched below.

Hockey Notes On A Sunday Morning

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- Mitch Marner is the second highest-paid winger in the National Hockey League and with that comes an inherent set of responsibilities.

He doesn’t have to be the nicest man on earth or the friendliest or even the most quotable: None of that really matters big picture.

What he has to be is productive — that’s why the Leafs paid so much for him on the eve of training camp in 2019. More money than Patrick Kane. More money than Alex Ovechkin. More money than Nikita Kucherov....

= Russia will have Andrei Vasilevskiy, Igor Shesterkin, and possibly Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Winter Olympics. The U.S. will have Connor Hellebuyck or John Gibson. And if Carey Price is unable to play, Team Canada will likely have a shell-shocked Marc-Andre Fleury or Jordan Binnington in net. Gulp.

- The difference between Mike Sullivan and Jon Cooper: Sullivan won two Stanley Cups in Pittsburgh without an Vasilevskiy in goal and without a Victor Hedman on defence. Sullivan and Cooper are the two best coaches in hockey today … Not far behind: Barry Trotz, Bruce Cassidy, and Joel Quenneville.

= How long before Jeremy Colliton is let go as coach of the Chicago Blackhawks? He’s my best bet to be the first coach fired in the NHL this season.

- It isn’t Michael Hutchinson’s fault that he isn’t good enough to play in the NHL.

He is, as they say, what he is.

A minor league goaltender of some quality — and there is no crime in that. He’s simply not talented enough to be an NHL difference maker...

Early Problems In Toronto

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,

Sheldon Keefe has kept believing his first full training camp as coach would get the Maple Leafs properly wired to start a long season.

Six games in, there has been a major disconnect between the coach, his unproductive stars and even the foot soldiers. A terrible 48 hours ended with a 7-1 Saturday night slaughter in Pittsburgh, an undermanned home side jumping on the listless Leafs.

It followed a 5-3 loss to San Jose and dropped Toronto’s record to 2-3-1. Keefe sat first line right winger Nick Ritchie on Friday, but expanded the dog house to breaking up Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner in Saturday’s final period.

“The biggest thing to manage now is the mood and the belief in the group,” said Keefe, who was committed to a plan to take Sunday off to travel to Carolina. “It’s easy to start doubting and questioning when thing aren’t going your way. The difficult thing is to dig in, realize the league is very good and if you cut corners, even one bit, teams make you pay.

“It’s tough playing from behind. We’re doing it too much lately, but this one got away from us quickly.”

Report- NHL Players Will Be Permitted To Be In Gambling Ads

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

The NHLPA and NHL have reached an agreement under which players are permitted to participate in advertising related to sports wagering, Slap Shots has learned.

A memo sent to all players and agents on Friday outlines the agreement that comes with several guidelines, the most pertinent being that players are not permitted to be depicted “engaging in betting activities” and that the player’s endorsement, “does not promote betting on NHL games.”

I don’t love it, not at all, but if all sports leagues and individual club owners are cashing in, then there is no reason the players should not get a slice of the pie.

* The Blues scored seven goals for the second time in three contests to topple the Kings and earn a victory in their first game at Enterprise Center this season. 

* Minnesota won in come-from-behind fashion yet again and joined rare company in NHL history in the process.
