Drury Time

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Last night at the Rock, the clock was tick-tick-ticking away on the game and, in essence, on whatever chance the Rangers New York Rangers were going to have at making a dash down the stretch to capture the East title.

It was 1-0 Devils with fewer than five minutes to go in third, just as it had been 1-0 Devils from the 6:05 mark of the first.

In other words, Drury Time.

Time for the Big Moment Kid.

Wild Dman Foster Out With Broken Leg

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Russo’s Rants,

As (Kurtis) Foster passed the goal line, he was hit from behind by an oncoming Torrey Mitchell and slammed headfirst into the lower part of the end boards at full-speed.

“It’s just one of those things that tell you that there should be automatic icing,” Sharks coach Ron Wilson said. “I guess that’s a play where the fans want to see a big car wreck like that.”

Mitchell, immediately realizing the severity of the situation, showed concern toward Foster.

“We both fell, so I don’t know if I lost an edge first or he lost an edge first,” Mitchell said. “I was coming in with a lot of speed and so was he. We collided. It wasn’t intentional. I asked him if he was OK when it was over and he said no. … I would never want to hurt anyone.”

Talking Hart

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Dreger of TSN,

No Russian born player has ever won the Art Ross Trophy. Washington’s Alex Ovechkin and Pittsburgh’s Evgeny Malkin are poised to change that with the pair continuing to battle for the league lead in points.

However, the buzz around the NHL as the regular season winds down targets another major award; the Hart Memorial Trophy.

New Lease On The Horizon For Predators

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via Yahoo,

The new owners of the Nashville Predators are close to final approval on a revised lease agreement for their arena that has Nashville taxpayers helping subsidize the team.

The Metro Sports Authority approved the new lease by a vote of 7-1 Tuesday, and the Metro Council is expected to vote on the lease April 1 with only a simple majority needed for approval.

The agreement has Nashville paying the team $3.8 million each year, even when the Predators don’t lose that much money. If the Sommet Center’s losses are less than $3.8 million, the other money could be spent on the arena itself.

Something Wacky This Way Comes

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

1527 ESTUpdated again. Filppula’s the injured forward, one of them anyway.

1504 EST: Updated below with quotes from Meech and Babcock.

Anti-Digger Bruce MacLeod says a vet’s sitting tonite and Derek Meech is in the lineup.

Oh…and he’ll be playing a wing.

Meech will definitely play forward tonight, according to coach Mike Babcock. Why there’s a need for him up front isn’t as clear. Aaron Downey will be in the lineup. So will Darren Helm.

That means that one forward who played in Sunday’s game in Columbus will be absent tonight, but when asked which forward, Babcock declined to name one. It might be that a veteran will be given a night off to rest a lingering injury.

Something sounds familiar, but I just can’t place it.  Wait, I think I got it.
