Caps In

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from CBC,

Alex Ovechkin’s dream National Hockey League season that will include a goal-scoring title and likely league scoring championship will continue with a chance to hoist the Stanley Cup.

Ovechkin was held off the scoresheet Saturday night but it mattered little as his Capitals teammates stepped up in a 3-1 win over visiting Florida to give Washington its first division title since 2001 and fourth in franchise history.

What Did You Expect

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rich Hammond at Inside the Kings,

Sometimes, reality is just far more amazing than fiction could ever be. Those who have been to regular-season finales recall that the Kings give away a car to a fan during the second intermission. Fans—I believe five of them—line up, select a key one-by-one and attempt to start the truck. So, they did, just now. And they failed. All of them. They each took a key, and none of them started the truck.

Evening Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Lightning Strikes,

“Every time I read Bruce Boudreau’s comments that Vinny just happened to step in front of a train,’’ Feaster said. “First that’s what it was because (Lecavalier) wasn’t looking. Then it was he didn’t see him coming. I think he embarrasses himself every time he opens his mouth about the subject. I think they should be happy Matt Cooke is in the lineup tonight, it’s only a $2,500 fine….

Hockey in His Blood

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Vincent M. Mallozzi at the NYT (Sunday’s edition),

Also in his collection are 60 autographed jerseys, one of which was signed by 38 members of the Hall of Fame and 6 worn in games by Hall of Famers, including Bobby Orr and Wayne Gretzky, his favorite players.

“Wayne Gretzky was the most remarkable player I have ever seen,” Poitras said. “But Bobby Orr was a combination of greatness and toughness when the N.H.L. was a much tougher league.”

Poitras, who owns season tickets to the Rangers and the Islanders, has four rooms in his home filled with the kind of memorabilia that would make Lord Stanley raise his silver cup in appreciation.

“I do have a rather unusual collection,” said Poitras, a logistics and planning manager at Citigroup, who has turned his Long Island home into a veritable hockey shrine over the years, amassing much of his collection through auctions. “People who visit me get a real kick out of all my stuff.”

Will Florida Play It Straight Tonight?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

How about this scenario- Caps and Panthers tied with about one minute to go in regulation.  Panthers coach Jaques Martin knows if the Caps get a point, they are in the playoffs.

Does he pull his goalie to try to get a regulation win which would prevent a playoff spot for the Caps?

Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Seth Rorabaugh of Empty Netters,

As much as we all may have hoped for their demise, the Flyers had other plans. They beat the Devils last night, 3-0, and got into the playoffs.

Disdain for this vile organization aside, you have to hand it to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren for getting this team into the playoffs. He was handed a bowl of dog food after Bobby Clarke stepped down last season and managed to turn it into a birthday cake.

Koivu Uncertain to Return to Start Playoffs

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From the CP via the Globe & Mail,

Saku Koivu is optimistic his fractured left foot will heal enough to let him start the playoffs but the Montreal Canadiens captain said Saturday nothing is certain.

“What’s going to happen in the future, for the first game, we’ll see next week,” Koivu said. “Every day it feels better, but there’s not much we can tell.

“We’ll know a lot more in the next couple of days.”

Lecavalier to Undergo Shoulder Surgery

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Sports Network,

Lecavalier returned to Tampa on Friday to undergo further diagnostic testing by team physician Dr. Ira Guttentag. The evaluation revealed that Lecavalier suffered damage to the Glenoid Labrum of the right shoulder and will require surgery.

He is expected to make a full recovery in 12-15 weeks following the procedure, which will be scheduled in the near future.

“While I’m disappointed to be facing surgery at this time, I’m looking forward to working hard during the summer to be ready for training camp in September,” Lecavalier said.
