Scoring On The Minds Of The Sharks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Working the Corners,

Everybody was on the same page this morning. Talking positive, making it all sound pretty simple for the Sharks to climb right back into this series tonight.

“We’ve just got to put in our chances,” Joe Thornton said. “We’ve had some golden opportunities that we haven’t actually buried.”

Well…If I Have To

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Well, the Dive bloggers seem to be gaining momentum today…picking up a little emotional steam, despite the fact that this series’ best forward (for Denver anyway) is now done.  A few of the Triple Bravos are getting a little spicey.

Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Adam Proteau’s Tuesday mailbag at The Hockey News:

[To] Adam,
Considering the gazillions of dollars he has made over his career, do you think there’s a chance that Jaromir Jagr would go back to Pittsburgh at a deep discount just for a chance to play with Malkin & Crosby? [...]

[To] Steve,
Jaromir Jagr? Accept the minimum salary? If he was being held at gunpoint, maybe.

Musings From the Playoffs

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Jim Kelly at Sportsnet.ca,

4) Is there an NHL team that looks dumber or cheaper than the Buffalo Sabres right now?

Former Sabre Danny Briere, who practically begged the Sabres to give him a reasonable contract offer last season, is leading the league in playoff scoring and is a big reason that the Flyers still have a chance to go from worst to first in a single season. The Sabres made it clear they had no interest in signing Briere (though for the record they did make a token effort hours before free agency opened, an effort that reminded many of their “attempt” to re-sign Ted Nolan as coach a decade earlier).

How to Be a Professional Hockey Player

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From David Littman at The Hockey News,

I joined the Oyster Bay youth hockey organization and went to summer hockey camps where I was coached by the likes of Resch, Smith, Lou Lamoriello and Brian Burke. 

When I wasn’t playing on the ice, I was playing street hockey. When I wasn’t playing street hockey, I was in my basement throwing tennis balls against the stairs and making glove saves that would win my team the Stanley Cup.

Hockey was all I thought about and there was no doubt in my mind I would play in the NHL.

But not everyone else thought so.

Littman was originally drafted by the Buffalo Sabres and played for both the Sabres and Tampa Bay, as well as in the AHL, ECHL and IHL. Currently he’s the producer of EA Sports NHL series and now a blogger with THN, promising a lot of great stories.

Playing Along

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

imageThe guys at PlayAction.tv have been after me to participate in one of their prediction games and I finally took them up on their offer last Saturday.

PlayAction.tv offers a very unique prediction game that runs off your mobile phone.  They send you a prediction question.  You predict the outcome and send back the numerical code of your chosen answer.  They have ‘game jockeys’ who run the games live and send out some very interesting questions. 

The opening pick for Saturday’s Habs-Flyers game was “Can Habs carry momentum from GM 1? How will MTL do after 1st?”.  I figured Montreal would certainly ride the momentum of their huge comeback win in Game One so I chose “Lead by 1”.  Unfortunately, the Flyers didn’t follow the script…

Don’t Mess With Penguins’ Chemistry

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From David Shoalts at the Globe & Mail,

In fact, the team chemistry is such that head coach Michel Therrien does not want to change it even though veteran forward Gary Roberts is healthy enough to return to the lineup. Roberts, who played a big role in the first two games of the first round of the NHL playoffs before suffering a groin injury, was told in the morning that he will not play in Game Three of the Eastern Conference semi-final against the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

With the Penguins holding a 2-0 series lead and Adam Hall playing well in Roberts’ place, Therrien decided to leave things as they are.

“We want Gary Roberts back in the lineup but we want him back at the right time,” Therrien said. “If we bring him back, who are we going to take out? We have great chemistry right now.”
