Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN,

Nashville forward Scott Nichol has been suspended for five games for cross-checking Montreal’s Patrice Brisebois in the head in the Predators’ win over the Canadiens on Saturday night.

‘‘The crosscheck by Mr. Nichol to the head area of his opponent was reckless and dangerous,’’ said Colin Campbell, NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations. ‘‘Although no serious injury resulted,the action is unacceptable.’‘

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ice Block,

CNN has video of a Zamboni catching fire. There’s little audio, no report, and no links to a report.

A quick search led me to find the rink was in Aston, PA: Zamboni fire forces Aston ice rink evacuation.

Cote Suspended 3 Games - Flyers “Under Watch”

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Ed Moran at the Philadelphia News,

The Flyers have been put on notice by the NHL.

After Riley Cote was handed a three-game suspension for a head shot to Dallas forward Mat Niskanen in Saturday’s game, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman told Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren that the league would be watching the Flyers closely.

“I talked to [Bettman] today. He thinks, like I do, that these are different coincidences, different situations, that have to be viewed differently, but the question was raised about ramifications if it happens again,” Holmgren told the Daily News. “So obviously we’re under watch.”

The Best In The East

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler at Game On,

You pessimists who frequent The Rangers Despair Society can dispatch your crying towels to the laundry pile; the Blueshirts are on the move, up, up, and UP.

A victory on Monday night against Carolina at The Garden SHOULD, if accomplished, establish New York as “la creme de la creme” of the East.

Scott Nichol Facing Possible Suspension

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Tennessean,

Predators center Scott Nichol is scheduled to talk with NHL officials here this afternoon and could face a suspension for the double-minor, high-sticking penalty he picked up in Montreal on Saturday.

Nichol was given the four-minute penalty late in the second period of the Predators’ 5-4 shootout victory, after officials whistled him for what appeared to be a crosscheck to the chin of Montreal defenseman Patrice Brisebois.
