It’s January, and that means you’ve tired of the Diggers.  Sorry.  I shouldn’t narrow the months down like that.  It’s winter, and you’ve tired of the Diggers.  So, we turn to some other sources to re-affirm our suspicions that the Wings are, well, the Wings.

Slow Process For Bergeron

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of the CP via Yahoo,

It’s slow going to be sure. He got a small headache at the end of his bike session last week and was told to rest for a few days.

“Every week I’m getting better but obviously it’s not where I’d like to be. I’d like to be on the ice right now,” said Bergeron. “And I’m not close to going back on the ice. But at least we’ve started to work out. I’ve been on the bike three times so far. I felt OK. The last time I had small little headaches, so we decided to take more time off and see what happens after that.

“I’m feeling good, I feel a lot better, but not exactly where I want to be.”

A Goal Worth Another Look

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Erik Erlendsson at The Tampa Tribune,

Hockey Web site Kukla’s Korner had a video link to a highlight of the goal with the description of “a great between-the-legs move” by Lecavalier.

Whatever anybody else wants to call the play, Lecavalier just calls it a bit of instinct combined with plenty of luck.

“I don’t really think about it ... I just kind of do it,” Lecavalier said of the play. “I knew I wanted to fake goaltender Ray Emery out, but for me, the worse thing is that after it happened, if I had missed it I would have been pretty mad at myself and I would have thought that I should have just shot the puck.

more… about Lecavalier’s season, and go here to see the video.

THN Rankings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

KEn Campbell of the Hockey News ranks the NHL teams, 1-30…

1. Detroit: The way Datsyuk, Zetterberg & Co. are playing, it doesn’t matter who plays goal.

2. Pittsburgh: The great outdoors has done wonders for the Penguins and so has Ty Conklin.

3. Calgary: Let the Jarome-Iginla-for-MVP begin in earnest.

4. San Jose: Not a lot of fun to watch, but not a lot of fun to play against, either.

Straka Out With Concussion

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from On the Rangers Beat at Newsday,

In a serious blow to the Rangers’ offense, Martin Straka, who missed 15 games with a broken finger, but sparked a resurgence of the first line when he returned, is out indefinitely with a concussion he suffered Saturday in the Edmonton game. Nigel Dawes skated in Straka’s spot alongisde Jaormir Jagr and Scott Gomez in practice today.

Also not skating was Brendan Shanahan, whose left knee injury was described as a bad bruise and coach Tom Renney described the veteran’s status as “day-to-day.”

Yotes Rolling

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Arizona Republic,

Various factors have jelled for the Coyotes as the first half of the season comes to an end Tuesday night in Calgary. Riding a four-game winning streak with a record of 21-18-1, they are one of the surprise teams in the NHL.

Coach Wayne Gretzky points to a couple of the main reasons.

“The two things that you need to do to win hockey games is, a) cut down on penalties, which we’re doing a tremendous job of; and b) cut down on goals against . . . we’re probably, after 40 games, 80 goals better defensively than we were last year at this time - or close to that, anyway.”

Emery & McGrattan Battle In Practice

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sun Media,

Senators goaltender Ray Emery stopped more than pucks in practice today, getting into a brief scrap with tough guy Brian McGrattan.

The pair laughed it off afterwards, but were none too pleased with each other after they bumpoed during a skating drill. As they squared off and tossed fists at each other, teammates quickly jumped in and ended the brouhaha.

No Suspension For Downie

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Colin Campbell, NHL Executive Vice President and enforcer of discipline, gave him a stern warning about his sucker punch that left Toronto’s Jason Blake with a black eye, but did not suspend him.

“We had a conversation with Mr. Campbell and that’s it. The rest will be between the league, the Flyers and Steve,” said general manager Paul Holmgren. “It was a good talk.

“It’s Steve’s [fourth] NHL game. He’s walking a fine line there, which is basically what he was told. My conversation with Steve was a little harsher than Colin Campbell’s.”
