Emery’s Turn

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Citizen,

Sticking with his win-and-you’re-in policy, Ottawa Senators coach John Paddock will give Ray Emery the chance he’s looking for Saturday in Toronto against the Maple Leafs, a pressure cooker if there ever was one.

Martin Gerber, who has played and won the last two games, took the fall for Thursday night’s 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins, even if Paddock was far more critical of Jason Spezza for his giveaways than his goaltender.

Clutch Time

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler at Game On,

The clutch weeks have just begun.

Which is why tonight’s melodrama also will indicate which goalie—Brodeur or Lundqvist—has more clutch-ability. That is, assuming that Renney opts for Henny.

In his past two games, Marty has allowed leads to dissipate—first to Montreal and then Pittsburgh—before the home fans. He needs a win for confidence to be restored.

A Look At Sawchuk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Morris Dalla Costa of the London Free Press,

The book is really about a rebirth.

A rebirth for its subject—former National Hockey League goaltender Terry Sawchuk—and a rebirth for its author, Randall Maggs.

Night Work: The Sawchuk Poems recounts the life, in and out of hockey, of arguably the best goaltender who ever played the game. He also was one of hockey’s most tragic figures, dying in 1970 at the age of 40 after fighting with teammate Ron Stewart in the off-season. He suffered from untreated depression.

Luongo Facing His Old Team

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from George Richards of the Miami Herald,

The bottom line is, Luongo always thought a deal was going to be made, and he would remain in Florida. Luongo was the face of the Panthers, and he figured he would be for years. The franchise is led by others now, but Luongo has his piece of its history.

Luongo and the Panthers have moved on. But Friday night’s game is still going to be special.

‘‘I think it’s going to be real emotional for him,’’ said Jokinen, who came to Florida with Luongo in a trade from the New York Islanders in 2000. ``He’s going to have a lot of friends out there.’‘

In the stands, and on the ice, too.

Goalies & Their Mask

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Hayley Mick of the Globe and Mail,

...And like divas with their “it” bags or businessmen with polka-dot ties, professional goalies have long expressed their individuality with customized paint jobs on their masks.

Now amateurs are getting in on the act, paying big money for helmet art to illustrate passions and alter egos ranging from Mr. Potato Head to Metallica to portraits of their children.

“I’m just aiming for an expression of my likes,” said Randy Hall, a 43-year-old father from Mississauga who plays senior men’s hockey three times a week wearing a tribute to his favourite band, Rush, on his head.
