Only Memories Now

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Marty Henwood of Hockey.com,

Call me sentimental, a purist or just plain old, but there are times when I just miss those grand old ladies.

Some of you may remember them, others probably choose to say good riddance in an era of luxury boxes and eight-sided scoreboards.

Maple Leaf Gardens. Montreal Forum. Boston Garden. Chicago Stadium. The Olympia. The Spectrum.

Buildings with character. With memories. With ghosts.

Morning Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Don Brennan at the Ottawa Sun,

Bryan Murray made light of the struggles of Mike Commodore yesterday, saying that while the big defenceman has brought much of what he was expected to bring to the table, the coach would like to see No. 44 improve his puck skills. “I’m going to loan him my stick,” said Murray. “I think the hands go with it.” Across the hall a few minutes later, Commodore was in no chuckling mood. “Fourteen games, no points, minus-6

Listen To Your Coach Rick

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Greg Logan of Newsday,

The situation between Nolan and his goaltender undoubtedly is the most sensitive right now. Michel Ouellet scored Tampa Bay’s first goal at 6:51 of the first period after DiPietro went behind his net to play the puck and gave it away to Jeff Halpern, who fed Ouellet for a shot on the open net.

“We ask him over and over again not to play the puck as much,” Nolan said of DiPietro. “He’s one of the best puck-handlers in the league, but you just can’t overhandle it. When you overhandle it, you get yourself in trouble a little bit.”...

Showing his frustration, Nolan said of DiPietro: “The only thing you can do is keep going through it over and over again. You can’t do that. You’ve got to let our defense handle it a little bit more. He just wants to play it. What can you do?”

Quick Comeback For Smyth

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Denver Post,

When the Avs return to practice Thursday morning, they probably will be joined by their pricey left winger, Ryan Smyth.

Smyth, the team said Tuesday, is likely to return after making a speedy recovery from the scary hit he took March 1 in a game against Los Angeles. He suffered a concussion and slightly separated shoulder after being hit by Kings defenseman Jack Johnson into the turnbuckle near the Avs’ bench.

Three The Hard Way

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Sun,

Last night the Oilers rookie became the first player in NHL history to score three consecutive overtime winners as Edmonton defeated the St. Louis Blues 4-3 at Rexall Place.

“I actually don’t think my game was that good tonight, I don’t think I was very good in the first two periods,” Cogliano said.

“I think the overtime was my best five minutes of the game. I had a couple of chances to score before that, but I was lucky to get open in front of the net and score the goal.”
