Clowe And Cleary Popular Back Home

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duihatschek of the Globe and Mail,

It was well after midnight back home on The Rock when Ryane Clowe scored the tying goal and later still when he started the play that led to the San Jose Sharks’ eventual game winner.
But anyone who stayed with the television coverage into the wee small hours in Newfoundland Monday night sure got their money’s worth, when the Sharks defeated the Detroit Red Wings 2-1, with Clowe, their native son, leading the charge.

In case you missed the audio interview with Eric Duhatschek I did earlier in the day, follow this link.  Cleary and Clowe were part of the discussion.

added 8:43pm, Eric also witnessed Scotty Bowman doing his blogging gig for NBC…

Is Bowman reading his own blog? “Sometimes.”
Just to make sure he’s not misquoted in his own blog? “No, he tapes it.”
Thirty years ago, could Bowman ever imagine that this is what he’d been doing, in his retirement years, keeping an on-line diary?
“I didn’t even know what the hell it was,” he said. “No, I knew what it was. He calls and I just give him what I think.”

Sundin’s Real Hip Problem

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Mats Sundin has a torn labrum, which is the soft tissue surrounding the joint in his hip, according to a National Hockey League source.
Surgery is one of the treatment options, but it is not required as long as he is in no discomfort. A medical source said surgeons will not recommend surgery as long as there is no pain and that the Toronto Maple Leafs captain can play with the injury.

Trust In Spezza & Heatley

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via Metro News,

The two Ottawa offensive engines have gained the trust of coach Bryan Murray to play at times when defence is the team’s top priority.
“Last year, I wouldn’t have dared to do that,” Murray admitted.
It is appreciated by Heatley and Spezza.
“That’s nice to have from a coach,” Heatley said after practice on Tuesday. “We showed him that we can play safe and responsible.
“Me and Spez, we’re offensive guys. We came into the league as offensive guys and sometimes you get a rap as guys who take too many chances. But this year, we’ve learned to play a little tighter and he’s rewarded us for it.”

Blame Global Warming

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Loose Change at the Hockey News,

Conspicuously absent from the list is the one villain who everyone’s currently pointing a finger at, for everything under the sun, - the NHL can’t even play the Blame Game properly – Global Warming! Yes, my rapidly-thawing friends, Mother Nature is keeping fans from warming (brilliant reasoning, I know) up to the sport of hockey.
If you think about it, it makes so much sense.

Hockey History and Gossiping About Stanley

An Interview with Michael McKinley,
Filmmaker and author of
Hockey: A People’s History
____________________________________________

With the NHL playoffs well underway, excitement for hockey in North America is at its highest point of the season. Especially true for the fans of the eight teams fighting their way to next round, but also for the many new fans that are seduced by our favorite sport during this time of year, when passions are at their highest. 

One of the pleasures of playoff hockey is all the extra analysis we can indulge in.  We entertain ourselves with fool predictions, screaming arguments about the officiating, even crazy dreams of seeing the Stanley Cup in our own arena.  At a time like this, it’s also natural to reflect on historical greatness as we watch new history being made before our eyes. 

On that topic, I spoke with hockey historian Michael McKinley recently, to learn more about hockey’s past, and some of the great stories the make this game what it is today.

Wing Award Finalists

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Uncle Mike Lack of Jack Adams got the shaft, in my opinion; as I think he should have at least been considered. But two Wings (stop reading if your memory takes you back to last year) are finalists again. JAMES NORRIS MEMORIAL TROPHY (outstanding defenseman): Nicklas Lidstrom, Red Wings; Scott Niedermayer, Ducks; Chris Pronger, Ducks. LADY BYNG MEMORIAL TROPHY (sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct): Pavel Datsyuk, Red Wings; Joe Sakic, Avalanche; Martin St. Louis, Lightning. This is Lidstrom's 8th time as a Norris finalist in the last 9 years. More

NHL Goes Viral

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Why put up an older video?- just a test but read on hockey bloggers.

Canucks Ready For Big, Bad Ducks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the OC Register,

Game 4 is tonight at GM Place, and the Canucks are not about to back down.
“The main thing is what we believe in this locker room,” Vancouver goaltender Roberto Luongo said. “There’s going to be speculation outside the locker room, but the most important thing is we believe in our group and we believe we can get the job done. We’ve proven that we can play with these guys. Apart from the first game, they’ve been all tight games. We’re just going to keep plugging away.”
While many in the media, particularly those from Vancouver, might have been guilty of writing off the Canucks after the first game of the series, the Ducks certainly did not fall into that category.
