Afternoon Line- Eric Duhatschek

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Sometimes, a change of scenery is exactly what a player needs, especially if he’s grown stale in an organization that’s also lost patience with him. We’re seeing that more and more in the NHL these days – GMs willing to make what appear to be lateral trades, hoping that a change in scenery breathes new life and energy into a player.

-Eric Duhatschek of The Athletic where you can read more (paid) on recent trades plus other topics.

The Young Goalies In The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Woodley at NHL.com

The youth movement dominating the NHL hasn't fully applied to goaltenders yet. But it could be coming out of necessity.

Fast, skilled, young forwards and defensemen are changing how the game is played in the NHL. 

Though veteran NHL goalies and goaltending coaches have talked about having to adjust their mindset and tactics to operate in the more open, offensive style that has led to an increase in NHL goal scoring this season, some of the League's younger goalies are already used to a speedier pace.

"The way the game is now, it's so fast and so open. There are a lot of scoring chances and a lot of Grade-A looks," New Jersey Devils goalie Mackenzie Blackwood said. "I guess the goalies who have been around a lot longer are saying they have to adjust to it, but I know a lot of goalies growing up, this is the only style of hockey that they know."

Not A Good Game For The Dallas Stars

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Matthew DeFranks of the Dallas News,

At 9:12 p.m. on Thursday night, after the second period of the Stars' lifeless, lethargic 2-1 loss to Los Angeles, the boos rained from the upper deck of American Airlines Center, and echoed from the club level, and from the lower bowl.

The 18,045 fans in attendance on Thursday night were fed up with the Stars. They accumulated 11 shots on goal through the first 40 minutes, and finished with 30 for the game. Two more power plays passed without a Dallas goal. And the Stars' offense spun fruitlessly again versus one of the league's worst teams.

"Not enough desperation in our play," Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. "We didn't play with enough passion."
