KK- Everyone Is Rushing Around

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

So I got up very early this morning, did an early morning update and then went out to do a little shopping. thinking I could beat the crowd.

Wrong! Very wrong.

People rushing around, hurrying up to hurry, needing to get to the next spot as fast as they can.

Boy am I glad I am out of there now.

Now the fun begins, enjoying the Holiday Season with friends and family.  I may post a few more items today, but they will be sporadic.

Tomorrow, I will be making the annual Christmas Wish post then you won’t see me until the morning of December 26th.

Enjoy the Season KK friends and stay away from the mall!

Alfredsson Out At Least A Few Weeks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

“I don’t know exactly how long (he’ll be out), but it will be a few weeks anyway,” said Alfredsson, who was wearing a brace on his left shoulder. “We will probably see the doctor (today), do an X-ray and see what the damage is. I expect at least a few weeks.”

Senators coach Cory Clouston tried to hide his displeasure.

“I just don’t want to comment. I want to look at it again. I don’t really want to say anything more ... to say if it was a penalty or not. We did that and we were called whiners.”

more and you can watch the hit if you missed it earlier…

Return The Rings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun,

He may have lost his NHL shutout record this week but now the family of the late Terry Sawchuk would like to find his two stolen Stanley Cup rings.

The guy who beat this long-held record earned it. But whoever stole the rings not only didn’t earn it, but also fleeced a nice family of some very special memories.

It would be a great Christmas present to see them returned.

“It has been a mystery for almost 40 years,” said Sawchuk’s 55-year-old son, Jerry, one of seven children. “We feel the rings are still out there somewhere.”

Wings Need To Keep Battling

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The Detroit Red Wings head into their two-day Christmas break on a downer, losing three games in a row, including consecutive shutouts against rival Chicago.

But rather than get frustrated, they hope to get re-energized after spending some quality time at home.

“They’re probably looking forward to a couple of days (off) in a row, spend time with your family, it’s a great thing,” coach Mike Babcock said after Wednesday’s 3-0 loss to the Blackhawks at Joe Louis Arena.

“We got to keep hanging in there. A couple of days off won’t hurt this club at all, get re-energized and get back at ’er. We got to find a way to score some goals and keep battling.”

Blue Jackets In The Midst Of A Bad Stretch

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Aaron Portzline of Puck-rakers,

Kristian Huselius spent most of the day in the team hotel, fighting through a bout with the flu from his bed. He should have stayed there.

Huselius made two brutal plays that led directly to two Stars goals and a 3-1 loss before 16,532 in American Airlines Center.

It was a night that demanded dialed-up play from everybody in the lineup, but the Blue Jackets didn’t quite get it. Huselius was the poster child. He was on the ice for all three Dallas goals and finished with a well-deserved minus-2….

The Blue Jackets now get two days off for Christmas Eve and Christmas. Before you sharpen your talons, this is not a Ken Hitchcock decision. It’s an NHL rule that teams can’t practice or play on Dec. 24-25.

Maybe the Blue Jackets will get better luck for Christmas. Or some heart. Or character. This is a brutal stretch, indeed. This is the worst 18-game stretch in club history. When you know this club’s history, that’s really saying something.

more on the loss to the Stars…

Rock Bottom And A Note To Dater

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

No doubt about it. Consecutive 3-0 defeats to the Hawks is the worst we’ve seen in years. 

With 13 players missing from last year’s roster, if you include Lilja and the departed Hossa, Samuelsson, Hudler, etc.  Scoring is impossible.  Good defense isn’t enough.  Above average goaltending isn’t winning games.

And yet, we bide our time and count the nay sayers.  We might be rocking back and forth but we’re taking notes while we do. So when idiots like Adrian Dater run off at their Twitter-enabled pie holes?  We simply bookmark their crap and wait for April.

Craig Adams Hit On Daniel Alfredsson Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

No penalty on the play.

added 8:26pm, from TSN,

It appears as though the injury bug has taken another big bite out of the Ottawa Senators.

After getting Chris Neil and Pascal Leclaire back in the lineup, the Sens may be without captain Daniel Alfredsson for the immediate future after he left Wednesday night’s game against the Penguins with what the team is describing as a shoulder injury.


12/24/09 at 5:49am, added the video from the Pittsburgh point of view below…

You Could Be The King, Jimmah…The Baddest Cat Alive Even.  Now Steal One So We Can Live Blog It.

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

So we got some presents in the mail today, from my dad in Michigan. 

They were wrapped well. My dad’s pretty good at that kinda thing.  And they were stuffed in a box, surrounded by remnants of the Detroit News sports page from July 9th, 2009.  One article stood out, and it made me remember that I think Jimmah Howard is going to steal us one.

Not only that, I think Jimmah Howard is going to record a shutout tonite.  I’m so confident that I took a cue from Tyler and Brent.  If those geniuses can make a video, you damn well better believe (Porque!!) I can too.
