Coyotes Glad Bryzgalov Decided To Stay In The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sarah McLellen of the Arizona Republic,

Many times Bryzgalov contemplated leaving and going back to Russia. The Ducks organization was telling him he needed experience in the AHL and needed to learn how to be a No. 1 goaltender. The team made promises of calling him up, but he never stuck with the team. Bryzgalov thought he was ready and was wasting the best years of his career.

Zjenya and he talked about a move back to Russia. During the NHL lockout for the 2004-05 season, Bryzgalov even went back to Russia to sign a contract with the Kontinental Hockey League.

“But something about it stopped us and we stayed for one more year,” Zjenya said.

In 2005, Bryzgalov joined the Ducks as the backup goaltender and won a Stanley Cup with the team the following season.

“The dream came true,” Zjenya said. “We’re finally in the NHL. The next step is becoming No.1 now in the NHL.”

NHL Looking At Plekanec High Stick

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Matt Kalman of ESPNBoston,

Krejci tried to challenge Plekanec after the whistle, but he was rebuffed. In addition to Plekanec’s high-sticking penalty, the two players received unsportsmanlike conduct minors. Krejci says he has no idea what precipitated Plekanec’s hit because there were no words exchanged.

“I don’t care about suspended, but he should stick up for [himself],” Krejci said before Saturday night’s game with Toronto at TD Garden. “But he didn’t do it. He did what he did and he just left. He didn’t respond or anything. So I think it’s a gutless move. And we’ll play them again this year, so we’ll see what happens.”

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli confirmed to ESPNBoston.com that he has been in contact with the NHL offices about the hit and the league is reviewing it.

Show A Little Faith Bitches, There’s Magic In A Live Blog

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Oh yes I did.  The Wings are in Jersey and there’s a good chance The Boss is too.  We dig songwriters here.  Seger, Lightfoot and Toni Basil for the Dive fans.  Pretty much anyone but Bob Dylan.  There’s panic in Detroit, or at least there is among us.  The torches are lit and vigilante justice is one bad shift away.

What we need is a filthy win, a gritty, grind it out, grab it by the throat and squeeze that mofaux until the eyes pop and a one-goal lead is a sigh of relief instead of a frigging stroke waiting to happen.

Message To Marty:  The Circus Is In Town

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

You wanted it, you got it.

Khan(!)

Looking for some offensive spark, Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock has reunited stars Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg on the same line, at least for the start of tonight’s game against New Jersey.
They’ll be joined by usual linemate Tomas Holmstrom.

For one shift, at least. 

Rafalski’s still out. Eaves is back.  Mayday delayed until tomorrow in NYC.

Good, Bad & Busy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sam McCaig of The Hockey News,

Here’s the good, bad and busy so far this year:

THE GOOD
The cream is rising in both conferences, with Washington, Pittsburgh and New Jersey riding high in the East and San Jose, Calgary and Chicago sitting atop the West.

Detroit, Philadelphia and Vancouver are the only usual suspects missing from the playoff picture, although all three are on the bubble in their respective conferences.

But the real “good” has been the sustained positive play of surprise teams such as Colorado, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Nashville in the West and Buffalo and Atlanta in the East. These clubs have made the jump from “good start” to “good teams” and figure to remain in the battle for a playoff berth all season long.

Blackhawks Gamble On Their Core

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

With the Chicago Blackhawks recent resignings of Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith, we have a very good idea what the core of the team will look like for the next several years.  With their length contracts that would be hard to move, we can assume that Marian Hossa, Brian Campbell and Cristobal Huet will be part of the Blackhawk core as well.  Anyone else will be hard to keep around for salary cap reasons.  There is already speculation that Cam Barker, Dustin Byfuglien and Brent Sopel are among the players on their way out. 

Chicago is clearly a good team.  Their 17-10 record (with three overtime loss points) places them in fifth place in the NHL.  They haven’t won the Stanley Cup.  Last year’s semi-final appearance is their first playoff berth since 2002 and we are already talking about which players the team will have to get rid of to stay below the salary cap.
