After the game Kovalchuk tried to explain the hit. “I just tried to finish my check, and he kind of turned right before I tried to hit him,” he said.

“He hit the boards; it wasn’t my [intention] to hurt him or anything,” added the 24-year-old. “It’s a contact sport. I wasn’t trying to kill anybody.”

added 5:27pm, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

“Personally, what I can’t judge is they see these every night in the room. I’m only looking at one circumstance. I don’t think it’s that bad, but they’re the ones that review it. They see it every night,” said Waddell when asked if he thought the NHL would suspend Kovalchuk. “He has no history at all, that all weighs in your favor.”

The AJC also reports Kovy received a fine.

Tim Thomas Conference Call Transcript

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas participated in a NHL conference call with the media today.  His current record is 15-11-3 with one shutout, and his 2.38 GAA and .927 save percentage leads all NHL goaltenders.

Here is the transcript of the Q & A session.

Q.  I think for a lot of us, you’re sort of the poster boy for determined belief in yourself.  It’s been a long haul, and at one point there wasn’t room in the National Hockey League for you and now they have to make room for you in the All-Star Game.  Can you talk about this whole long experience that you’ve gone through?

How Rare Is A 40/40 Shot Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Elias Sports Bureau,

Florida was outshot by Ottawa, 46-40, but the Panthers beat the Senators, 5-3, Tuesday. It was the first NHL game in which both teams had at least 40 shots on goal since March 6 last year, when the Flyers beat the Devils in overtime and outshot them, 44-41. It was the first non-overtime game in which both teams had at least 40 shots since Feb. 7, 2006, when the Panthers shut out the Capitals, 5-0, though Washington had a 44-40 edge in shots.

Ha!

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

Pierre McGuire was asked what he would want in return for Sundin, assuming he would agree to waive his no-trade clause.

“I want to get the best possible assets in exchange for Sundin,” McGuire said, and then he listed some “fantasyland” scenarios he would chase.

“From the Detroit Red Wings I want Niklas Kronwall, a shut-down defenceman, and a first round pick.

“If I’m dealing with the San Jose Sharks, I want Milan Michalek and a first round pick.

“If I’m dealing with Vancouver then I want Ryan Kesler, a great two-way centreman, and a first round pick.”

Mike Richards Enjoying His Hockey Life

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from NHLPA.com,

Mike Richards has a dozen reasons to be smiling these days. His Philadelphia teammates and Flyers fans have many more.

Just how good is life for Richards, now in his third National Hockey League season?

Signing a 12-year contract extension and being named an All-Star, all within the span of two months, pretty much sums it up.

But even Richards, who leads the Flyers in several offensive categories, is amazed at how things have unfolded.
