Your Call

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Brain Teaser. Overtime. Breakaway. Penalty from behind. Penalty Shot. But wait. A second penalty is called. Diving. OK: what happens?

Answer as soon as the NHL, immediately stumped for a response, provides one.

Hockey In The Ballpark

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from CBC,

Two of the world’s most famous ballparks could be in the running to host hockey’s next outdoor extravaganza.

Yankee Stadium in New York is at the top of the list of possible sites if the NHL decides to hold a sequel to the wildly popular New Year’s Day Winter Classic in Buffalo, according to CBCSports.ca’s Scott Morrison.

Chicago’s Wrigley Field, home of the Cubs, is also on the short list.

Rucinsky Becomes Healthy Scratch Guy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

The decision to make Rucinsky a healthy scratch tonight and perhaps many more times in the final 15 games was a group consensus among Blues President John Davidson, GM Larry Pleau, VP of Hockey Operations Al MacInnis and head coach Andy Murray….

Rucinsky said after today’s morning skate that he understands the Blues’ decision.

“That’s how it works . . . that’s how it is . . . I don’t know what to say,” Rucinsky said. “There’s not much I can do about it. The decision is not mine; it’s theirs. I’m just going to have to live with it. I guess it’s a part of our job. I can’t control those things. What I can control is to be prepared everday for games, and if that decision comes, that I’m going to be in the lineup, I have to make sure I’m ready for it.”

That Time Of Year

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

With Daylight Saving Time (DST) just around the corner, I wanted to give KK members a heads-up to change your time settings.

Go into your KK Member Account settings (located near the top right of any page), go to Localization Settings, tick the DST box & update.  Also, make sure your time zone is set-up to match your local time if you want KK to coincide with your local time.

Also, you have less than 3 days to enter the latest KK Challenge and win an Alexander Ovechkin jersey!

It Happened Again

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Brenden Morrow was skating along the boards, interfered with by the Avs Jeff Finger and taken into the glass partition between the benches.  Finger gets 2 for interference, Morrow gets stunned and was down on his knees for a few minutes while being treated by the Stars trainer.

Morrow is back on the ice, after missing a few shifts.

Holmstrom Out With Groin Injury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mlive,

Tomas Holmstrom didn’t skate and won’t play Sunday vs. Nashville due to a groin injury he suffered in practice on Friday. Holmstrom said he’ll have an ultrasound on Sunday. He said he’s concerned about it, that it’s worse than it’s felt before.

“I pulled something in the groin area,’’ Holmstrom said. “I couldn’t push away (in practice Friday). Of course I’m concerned. I had something earlier this year but it went away, but never this bad.’‘

Could Be One Of Those Days & Nights

14 seconds into the Bruins/Caps game…

It is playoff run time folks, every point counts and the passion is here!

added 2:42pm, Chara left the game with a shoulder injury, not expected to return.  He hit a Caps player along the boards and it looked like a right shoulder injury.

added 2:55pm, Chara back for the 3rd priod.

Chemistry

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Here’s what I know about chemistry.  In tenth grade I failed it, and I mean miserably.  The innocent young maiden sitting next to me tried to help by drawing the entire periodic table on her thigh then letting me look at it during tests (and only during tests you sick bastards), but even that didn’t work.  I applaud her efforts though.  Sweet girl. Grew up on a farm, then moved to the big city to try to get into acting, only to find talent alone…nevermind.

Didn’t Expect This

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from James Duthie of the Ottawa Citizen,

So here’s my “Whoa! Didn’t see that coming!” list. The top 10 surprises of the season, presented in Lettermanish reverse order for dramatic effect. You’ll have to add your own drum roll….

No. 5: Owen Nolan

C’mon, admit it. You thought he retired three years ago. After missing two full seasons, then spending another in Phoenix (formerly hockey’s version of the Witness Protection Program), Nolan has re-emerged as a force in Calgary. He scores (15 goals), he hits, he fights and he’s a major reason no one wants to face the Flames in the playoffs.

Boot Camp Training Prepared Predators

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

“For eight hours, we had to crawl under barbed wire while they’re throwing grenades and smoke bombs,” said Nichol, eyes lighting up following a 2-1 overtime win.

“We had to pull a Humvee a mile-and-a-half, we shot M16s and handguns, we flew in Black Hawk helicopters ... It was all about building teamwork and it was probably one of the hardest days of my life.”

“We were running through the woods and swamps and through holes and these night stalkers—who fly in at night and they never leave a man behind—are trying to grab one of our guys and they couldn’t,” said the 33-year-old Edmonton-born grinder.

“They said it was the first time in 25 years they couldn’t (capture) one of our guys. They were all pissed off. We had to stick together.”
