A Night In the ‘War’ Room

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike G. Morreale of NHL.com,

Welcome aboard everyone - Are you ready for some hockey!

I sure am and I’m here at NHL headquarters in Toronto to prove it….

Right now, it feels like I’m at the local sports bar; television monitors all over and grown men anticipating the inevitable.

Who’s Who

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mark Hermann of Newsday,

...Or perhaps you prefer the wonderfully original Ducks color scheme: black sweaters, black shorts, black socks, black gloves, black helmets. That happens to match the ensemble worn by the Flyers. And the Lightning. And the Kings, Penguins and Stars. All of which were inspired by the Bruins.

It’s such a great idea that the Hurricanes last month introduced their new third jersey: black. Thus they joined the Sharks, Senators, Coyotes and, alas, the Blackhawks among teams who wear black at least part of the time.

What you have is uniformity in uniforms. It’s also a mess. When you turn on a game, you often can’t tell who is playing unless you happen to know who is playing.

Catch as catch, catch as catch can…It’s an LA-Driven Live Blog

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Updated 1733 Pacific:  McCarty in tonite.  Maltby is press-box bound.  Meech out.  The swedish appendectimonious warrior Lilja is in.

Best band to ever come out of Los Angeles?

Van Halen.  The original.

Best tune in my opinion?  Well, you tell me.  The post title includes the chorus.  I’ve loved the song for more than twenty years and always thought it was “etcha-sketch”. But I was wrong.

We May Have To Wait One More Day

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Sportsnet,

There is a strong possibility the National Hockey League will move the trade deadline back a day, from Tuesday Mar. 3 to Wednesday Mar. 4, sources tell Sportsnet.

With 12 games scheduled for the Tuesday, the league is concerned that NHL clubs would have a hard time icing full rosters should a significant number of deadline deals result in a large number of players being on the move.

The Smell Of Sulfur In Philadelpia

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

It you were watching the Devils/Flyers game this afternoon, yes, that was a smoke bomb/flare that was tossed on the ice during the OT period.

MSG+ showed a replay of the event with one of the Philadelphia players actually picking it up and carrying it towards the maintenance crew.

Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice said the bomb actually filled the arena with sulfur too.  Tom has another blog about this…

Hope the person responsible was caught and not allowed back in the building again!

added 7:35pm, Watch a video of the Smoke/stink bomb/flare below…

added 6:06am 10/26/08
, from Mark Everson of the NY Post,

A hostile crowd is the accepted burden of a pro athlete. Having to play under attack from a flaming missile tossed out of the stands is not part of the contract.

This one - possibly a road flare of the kind used during highway emergencies - flew toward the ice, flaming and smoking, landing next to the bench where the Devils were trying to coax victory out of overtime last night.

The missile erupted in acrid smoke that chased coach Brent Sutter and his staff into the runway and left the visitors looking to see if another was headed their way.

Bad Paint Job

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Boston Bruins,

The Boston Bruins announced today that the third period in tonight’s game against the Atlanta Thrashers will be split, with the teams switching ends at the first stoppage in play after the 10-minute mark of the period….

The change in format is occurring due to incorrect markings on the West End (visitors bench side) of the TD Banknorth Garden Ice. In the West End, the two face-off dots are 24 feet from the goal line - four feet longer than NHL specifications.  The corresponding face-off circles are also four feet further away from the goal line.

Evening Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“Maybe it’s a good thing I’m not with Team Canada anymore. Because every time we saw Jarome, he was auditioning (and he’d score three or four). I’ve got the white flag now — tell him I’m not there. Go do it against Detroit.”

-Phoenix coach Wayne Gretzky talking about Jarome Iginla.  More on the Flames/Coyotes matchup tonight at Flames Insider.
