Flyers Need More From Prospal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Sielski of phillyBurbs,

“Vinny’s a great passer,” Stevens said yesterday at Mellon Arena, after the Flyers practiced. “He’s got great vision with the puck. He gets standing still and not moving his feet too easily when he gets checked, and I thought that was the case (Friday) night. When he’s moving his feet, when he’s jumping off the wall, when he’s giving and going, more things happen for him. I thought he got a little bit away from that.”

Though the jargon and coded language of a coach and teammate too generous to call out Prospal publicly, there came a clear message: Start skating, Vinny. Start working harder and doing more.

Not A Complicated Formula

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Phil Sheridan of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

With all this talk about time and space, you half expect Albert Einstein to turn up at the morning skate.

The Flyers need to create time and space for their best players, especially Danny Briere’s line. They have to deny time and space to Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, the Pittsburgh Penguins’ stars. The Flyers’ theory of hockey relativity - E=mc2 - stands for Energy equals Malkin/Crosby to the second power.

Of course, all this time/space continuum chatter is just modern coachspeak that means, We have to hit their guys before they can move with the puck.

Sather Needs To Sign Avery

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Playing in New York has tangible value for Avery, both as a personality and as a player. The parts of the city and the city culture that he cares about have embraced him. The coach for whom he plays has accepted him. Never will Avery play for a coach so loyal to his players as Renney….

The relationship has been mutually beneficial, but the Rangers need Avery every bit as much as Avery needs the Rangers. It’s crazy to think otherwise.

It’s imperative for Sather to recognize that and stop acting as if he’s Darcy Tucker at center-ice during warmups looking for a fight, looking for a fight he’s not going to win and that the Rangers are going to lose.

Stars Could Have Easily Won

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Dan Noxon of the Dallas Stars Blog at the Dallas Morning News,

This was the kind of game I expected from the Stars. They played much better and they’ve got to be heading home tonight knowing it was one they very easily could have won….

But I say this series is far from over.

I’ll say this, too. After seeing the game-ending replay several times, Ozzie could have been called for a dive had the game still been going. It’s not like Ribs even really swung the stick.

Same Story For Dallas

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Outside, on the Riverwalk that skirts Joe Louis Arena, the 2008 Downtown Hoedown was underway – a country music block party in the cradle of Motown. On the street-level apron just outside the building, the Dallas Stars’ bus was greeted by the smells of Big Al’s BBQ, a fund-raiser for the Detroit Red Wings’ Foundation, featuring plenty of down-home cooking from the arena’s executive chefs.

Motor City did its best to make the visitors from down Texas way feel right at home on Saturday night – until they stepped on the ice, that is.

There, it was the same sad story for Dallas.

continued

added 10:49pm, again, from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Stars’ goalie Marty Turco called it “a pretty dangerous play on their part – a butt-end to the eye. It’s one thing to engage in a physical battle; that’s pretty gutless if you’re hitting someone in the face, if that’s what did happen, and I’m pretty sure it did. We’ll see what transpires in the next little while.”

more on the incident at the end of the game…

Video of the incident added on 5/11/08, watch below…

And Every Man Knew, As The Captain Did, Too…It’s a Game 2 Live Blog

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Update 1836: This one hurts. Franzen, concussion like symptoms, out for tonite.

Starting the Live Blog a little early tonite.  Apparently, the Hasek Club Car is filling up and you know those idiots need something to do.  I’ll be here for the start of the game.  Commence your conversations.  Juveniliciousness is the only mandate.

Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

“If you’re not on them when they get the puck and they’ve got room to come at you with speed, they’re going to make magical moves with the puck,” Flyers forward Scott Hartnell said of Malkin and Crosby. “It’s almost a given that if you give Evgeni Malkin the puck going up the ice at full speed with two wingers on each side of him, he’s going to make moves that are going throw your head around a circle.”

Uncle Mike’s Being Shady

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

According to John Niyo (not a Deep Digger…a little too talented and a bit too credible), Babcock probably has an idea which veteran grind liner is going to start tonite, but he’s not saying squat.  We, of course, dig that.

Mike Babcock wasn’t hinting at any after Saturday’s morning skate, though he’d said Friday he planned to dress both Kirk Maltby and Darren McCarty for warmups from here on out and then scratch one. I would imagine Maltby’s still in and Mac’s still out, though, for Game 2.

Niyo also reports Stu Barnes (post-concussion syndrome) won’t be in tonite.  The Anti-Digger, because there can be only one, reported that neither Homer nor Franzen skated today.  Stress if you want, but I’m sure they’re both just banged and resting.
