Kovalchuk Wants To Win Something Different

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

“I know what my future is. I’m going to go to the playoffs and we’ve got a great team. That’s my closest future,” Kovalchuk said. “I’m not a guy who thinks a couple of years ahead. I take [it] one day at a time.”

The prospect of gearing up for a playoff run is a nice change to what he had grown accustomed to in Atlanta, he said.

“It’s nice. That’s why we play hockey, to win,” he said. “You don’t want to finish every year in the middle of the April and go play [in the] World Championships. I’ve won twice [at the worlds] now. I want to win something different.”

Evening Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“Time flies when you’re having fun, doesn’t it.  It’s been great, it’s been a fun year. This group of players, they deserve all the credit in the world because they’re a group that a lot of people counted at the start of the year, and with the leadership in that room and the work ethic that these guys have, they deserve all the credit.

“It’s been fun for me, but coaches don’t block shots, have to stand in front of pucks in the net or finish checks, the players are the guys who have to get on the ice and find the results, and our group has been very good that way this year.”

-Phoenix Coyotes Head Coach Dave Tippett, via Jim Gintonio of Ice Chips.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

A KK reader in Germany passed this on to me and I just shake my head at times when I read stories like this.  I will give you the Google translated version, then click to read the rest.

If you check below, I will then give you the translation (all lower case, it was easier for him) from the KK reader too.

from sportal.de (translated),

Everything could be so beautiful in Jesenice, but then was the master of ceremony the first of a sad story with an accident, a fight and six ads.

Coach Mike Posma had properly celebrated with his players a day after winning the championship. At the end of six players to the 42-year-old coach beat hospital. DThis was now the president of the association, Slavko Kanalec confirmed. “His injuries, although only slightly, but Posma remained overnight for observation at the hospital,” said the club chairman.

Rask Over Howard?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Iorfida of CBC Sports,

Let’s preface this by stating unequivocally that Jimmy Howard is having a tremendous rookie season, as we know Detroit Red Wings fans (and some of the team’s beat men) are known to scour the internet for any perceived slight to one of their own.

Howard has allayed doubts over his NHL future that began to creep in after spending a healthy number of seasons in the AHL.

A consensus has seemed to emerge among many hockey pundits that the Calder Trophy trio of finalists will be Buffalo’s teenage defenceman Tyler Myers, Colorado centre Matt Duchene and Howard.

Boston goalie Tuukka Rask hasn’t seriously entered the discussion among most observers, and it seems to be solely related to the fact that Howard has started 21 more games (as of April 5).

Because nearly all other statistical indicators favour Rask over Howard….

Iginla Takes The Blame

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

On the eve of their biggest game of the season, Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla delivered an extraordinary mea culpa Tuesday, putting the blame largely on himself for the position the team find themselves in, hanging onto their playoff lives by a thread.

“I’m going to be around 70 points,” said Iginla. “It’s not enough. If you compare it to the other top teams, there are probably one or two in each conference that get in producing like that.”
