Michal Rozsival hit by Ilya Kovalchuk who received a major for boarding and game misconduct.

Rozsival went off the ice on his own with a cut near above the eyebrow I believe.

More To Come

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross of ESPN,

Ovechkin and Crosby will always be Bird and Magic, tied together by their passion and simultaneous entrance into the NHL. Even though Crosby sat next to the tan Mario Lemieux in the owners’ box Monday night, the game still had that Crosby-“Big O” edge. Capitals fans boo Crosby and Penguins fans boo Ovechkin.

Yes, Monday’s game had it all. Ten goals, stars shining brightly, monstrous hits, blocked shots, a shootout and little balls of hate. The only thing better would have been if Georges Laraque and Donald Brashear got into a fight, knocked each other’s heads off, and then, after sliding across the ice, the two heads started fighting.

Islanders Lose Campoli For The Season

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the New York Islanders,

Chris Campoli, one of the Islanders’ top young defensemen, will have shoulder surgery on Thursday and will be out for the remainder of the 2007-08 season…

“It’s a tough break for Chris. He’s been such a good player and he’s shown a lot of heart this season while battling the injury,” said Islanders head coach Ted Nolan. “The good news is that he will be under the best medical care and he has so many good years ahead of him. With Chris out, an opportunity opens up for someone to take advantage of. Thankfully, we had depth at the start of the season with at least 9 quality NHL defensemen. You can never have enough of them.”

Brodeur Dealing With Family Matter

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Fire & Ice,

Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur has pulled out of the Sunday’s NHL’s All-Star Game in Atlanta to deal with family matters. Brodeur said he informed Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello of his decision about a week ago, but it was not announced by the NHL until today. Brodeur will be replaced by Boston goaltender Tim Thomas.

“It’s a tough decision,” Brodeur said. “I’ve got some stuff going on with the family back home, so it’s something I just wanted to make sure I was here to take care of. It’s definitely a tough one. It’s such a great weekend to miss. That’s why I waited so long. I tried to avoid making that decision, but I think it’s for the best.”

Brodeur would not divulge the details of his “family” stuff other than to say, “health-wise everybody is OK.”

Risebrough Working The Phones

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Russo’s Rants,

I was told by a pretty good source that Wild GM Doug Risebrough has been working the phones a lot lately and has been talking to Florida casually. Risebrough’s not with the Wild right now. But that’s why these Olli Jokinen rumors intrigue me.

Also, Duane Sutter, the Panthers’s director of player development and my favorite player growing up, is on the Minnesota Wild tour right now. He was in Vancouver last night and told me he’d be in Calgary tonight.

Obviously, if Jokinen is up for grabs, several teams would have interest and it would take a heckuva lot to unleash the captain.

Dandenault Doesn’t Like Sitting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

Mathieu Dandenault isn’t demanding a trade but the Canadiens veteran will reflect upon his future in Montreal after being told he would sit out a game….

It was the second time this season Dandenault has been a healthy scratch. Both times, he has taken it hard.

He said he would discuss with his family and his agent, Mike Gillis, where his hockey future lies.

“I’m not saying I want out, I’m just saying I don’t want to be sat out,” he said. “The next guy the next game is probably going to say the same thing….

Hurry Up Cliff, Time Is Wasting Away

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Circle the date Feb. 26 - trading deadline day, the NHL’s answer to Christmas, with all of its exciting anticipation, its hidden promise and, inevitably, a day of joy for some and disappointment for others.

Cliff Fletcher has 35 days – between Tuesday, when he was appointed interim general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, replacing John Ferguson, and deadline day to define his second and final term as boss of that once storied NHL franchise.

Unlike Fletcher’s first turn as Leafs GM, in which he needed the better part of two years to turn an NHL laughingstock into a championship contender - it will be possible to evaluate his work in that short a time frame.

Season Long Funk For Jagr

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bellowing Moose at MSNBC,

Not since Suzanne Somers’ one-woman show has Broadway seen an act as disappointing as the one Jaromir Jagr is putting on with the Rangers this season. And although Jagr’s run has been longer than hers, his too might also be coming to an abrupt end….

Jagr has been in a funk all season, enduring long scoring droughts and doing little to lead a Rangers team that began the year as a preseason favorite and now looks hard-pressed to make the postseason.
