Vokoun Hit In Head By Stick Of Teammate Ballard

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the CP at TSN,

Florida Panthers goaltender Tomas Vokoun was taken off the ice on a stretcher after he was accidentally hit in the head by the stick of teammate Keith Ballard in the opening period of Monday night’s game against the Atlanta Thrashers.

Vokoun had a laceration to his ear but was alert when he was placed in an ambulance and taken to a local hospital, a Panthers spokesman said.

The incident occurred after Atlanta’s Ilya Kovalchuk scored a goal at 8:54 of the first period, knocking in his own rebound. In apparent frustration, Ballard swung his stick at the net, inadvertently striking Vokoun in the head.

Waiting in the Wings, Vol. 2: Fantasy Left Wingers

Blog: KK Hockey By Hippy Dave

After posting my last entry on right wingers, I discovered a couple of folks are in deep enough leagues where finding talent at left wing is also a challenge.  With that in mind I’m going to assume your league has already snapped up those left wingers whose unexpected rise from obscurity has already been noticed and find out what other wire bait might be useful to your team.

Did You Get That Live Blog From A Kitty Next Door?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

For some reason, we’ve attached ourselves to Saturday’s win. 

RWBill

The dedication from every last player on every shift the last 30 minutes of the game was remarkable.  No team can play that way all game all season.  This determination was finally rewarded, albeit culminated in a truly bizarre Bertuzzi shootout goal.

Great heart, Wings, and you really can’t underplay what a huge win this was, one of the biggest regular season wins in recent Wings history.

Yzerman Sent A Message

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,

Best story I’ve heard in a long time: With Vancouver holding a 2-0 lead over Detroit in the 2002 Stanley Cup playoffs, Brendan Morrison lined up for a faceoff against Steve Yzerman. Morrison said Yzerman smiled and told him, “We’ve got you right where we want you.” The Red Wings would win four straight, eliminate the Canucks and take the Cup.

The ‘Stache Gear Is A Success

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

George Parros is far removed from the runways in Paris, but let’s give the Anaheim Ducks tough guy credit for having the gumption to throw himself into the fashion world.

OK, fashion might be a stretch, but last week the 29-year-old winger launched the ‘Stache Gear apparel line of T-shirts and hats with his personalized mustache as the trademark insignia. The ‘Stache Gear went on sale at the Ducks’ team store this past Friday after Anaheim’s 3-0 win over visiting Chicago, and much to his relief, the items were a hit.

Parros’ biggest fear was showing up at the launch and not selling anything. He put in a lot of hours—and some of his own dime—setting up the charitable clothing line. The time leading up to the launch was nerve-racking.

Can You Score When It Counts?  Re-capping An Epic Live Blog

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Today, and tonite for some, we’re talking about scoring.  Unless, of course, you decide to write something that even hints that Ken Holland would willingly let Marian Hossa walk and then “replace” him with the likes of Todd Bertuzzi and Jason Williams.  If you are going to even suggest that Tick Tock considered those two a viable “replacement” for Hossa?  Well, heck.  You’re just a dumbass…and scoring is just not likely.  Well, maybe the faux kind.

Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Last season was fine, with the Hawks surprise participants in the Western Conference finals, but there’s no reason to think this couldn’t be one of those altogether too-rare dream seasons.
