Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mlive,

Dominik Hasek has tendinitis in his right wrist and won’t play the next two games, the Wings said Saturday. Tests revealed the wrist is not broken, but general manager Ken Holland said if Hasek doesn’t feel better by Monday, he might get a cortisone shot.

added 3:00pm, from Bill Clement at MSNBC,

I once said about Dominik Hasek that he protects his goal as if his children were in the net behind him. I made that remark about a dozen years ago and it is still true today.
Hasek is 42 now, and he’s all about the purpose of helping bring another Stanley Cup to Detroit.
But he can’t do that if he’s not healthy, and given his chronic groin problems the Red Wings are holding their collective breath that Hasek holds up through the playoffs

Pens = Nordiques

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rich Sadowski of the Rocky Mountain News,

A downtrodden hockey team finishes last in its division for several seasons, misses the playoffs and begins to build a powerhouse with young talent fetched with high draft picks.
Just when it appears the team is ready to make a run at a championship, the franchise is sold and moved to another city.
Sound familiar?
It happened with the Quebec Nordiques, who moved to Colorado in 1995 and won two Stanley Cups as the Avalanche, and the Pittsburgh Penguins could be on the same path.

Gelinas Dreams Of A Cup

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Miami Herald,

“In Marty’s case, maybe we will get some calls, I’m not sure, but right now I’m still focusing on getting our team in the playoffs.”
Gelinas has never had to deal with trade talks during an NHL stretch run because he usually has been with a contending team. Yet, a change of scenery would not be the worst thing to happen to him.
“[Being a possible part of trade talks] is a first for me,’’ said Gelinas, who holds the NHL record with three series-winning overtime goals. “I’m 36 years old and I still dream to win a Cup….”

added 10:27am, A little note from Bob McKenzie at TSN,

But after joining the team on the road and practicing hard with teammates, sources say Bertuzzi has discovered he is perhaps not quite as ready as he thought he would be. The target of about a week from now seems extremely doubtful.
It is not considered a major setback, but could be enough to affect teams that were considering Bertuzzi as a potential stretch-drive pickup.

Center Stage Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

Sidney Crosby is even more motivated than usual, if that’s possible.
“It’s a big game,” Crosby said of the Leafs-Pittsburgh Penguins tilt at the Air Canada Centre tonight. “It’s centre stage. Toronto is a big hockey town. It is Hockey Night in Canada so this is a big stage for us and I think everyone gets excited, not just us.
“(The Leafs) are going to be pumped up, too. They played pretty well against Nashville and came up short, but we are going to expect a desperate hockey team.”

Duck Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the OC Register,

Niedermayer returned to the ice this week after missing three games because of a stress fracture in his right foot, but he does not look fully recovered.
He didn’t seem to have his usual explosive speed chasing the puck or getting back on defense Wednesday night against the Sharks, and he was a minus-2 while logging 26:03 of ice time.

more on the Ducks plus… you guessed it, Forsberg talk…
