Penguins Hang On

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

But they barely survived by a margin as thin as Crosby’s unfortunately wispy beard, and weren’t even the best team on the ice.

In what was the most physically intense and entertaining game of the three played so far, the series began to live up to its hype and promise.

Crosby, freed from having to play against five-time Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom on every shift, was the first of the many stars on either club to actually play like a star.

But while the Penguins showed desperation in winning their 17th straight home game, the Wings were still superior, outshooting the home side 16-5 in the final period as Michel Therrien’s team frantically tried to hang on to victory.

Sundin Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Will Mats Sundin commit the ultimate act of betrayal in the eyes of Toronto Maple Leafs fans and bolt as a free agent this summer, possibly to the Montreal Canadiens?

continued

KK will not become the Mats Sundin network.  As many of you know, this type of story will continue to grow and grow until Mats make his decision.  We will pick and choose carefully when pointing to Sundin stories.

Update 12:12pm ET: (alanah) To hear Sundin’s comments for yourself, they’re on video from the Canadian Press.

NBC Affiliate In Detroit- Wake Up

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

With about 1:45 left in the 3rd period of last night’s game, the NBC affiliate, WDIV in Detroit, decided to switch from HD to SD and insert their post game graphics in the pillars of the picture.

They have done this before, whenever they had a local post game show and I have not brought it up.  But this is the SCF and this should not be tolerated by any HD viewer in the Detroit market.

WDIV, think before you do this again on Saturday.  Let us have the HD picture for the full game!

Sid Back On Track

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

“I see the train a comin’. It’s rolling down the track. It’s the Pittsburgh Penguins playoff hopes on Sidney Crosby’s back.”

OK, sorry, a little too much lyrical license there, but you get the point. In the most pressure packed moments of his still young NHL career, Crosby answered the call, shouldered the load, took his game to the next level or any other cliché you want to apply.

Hard Work Ahead For Pens

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Dan Wood of Ducks Blog at the OC Register,

The Pittsburgh Penguins deserve plenty of credit for the gutsy, gritty, inspired performance that produced Wednesday night’s 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals at Mellon Arena.

That’s the good news for Pittsburgh.

The bad news is the Penguins must duplicate that effort three more times in order to wrest the Stanley Cup away from Detroit.

While the Red Wings dominated and won the opening two games of the series in Detroit handily, Pittsburgh’s narrow triumph came in a game that easily could have gone either way.

The Difference In Game 3

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Brophy of the Hockey News,

The biggest difference for the Penguins in Game 3 compared to the first two contests was their ability to get the puck deep in Detroit’s zone and keep it there. At the morning skate, a number of Pens said their goal was to generate scoring chances off the down low cycle and that is exactly what they did.

In fact, Pittsburgh’s constant pressure caused the Red Wings to make to make several bad passes up the middle, many of which were intercepted and allowed the Penguins to re-establish pressure in the Detroit end.

An Open Post Because I like All Of You

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I’ll be moving around the nation today, finally settling in North Carolina sometime this evening.  I have no idea if I’ll have connectivity there, because I’m not sure the wires connected to the still connected to the car battery connected to the toaster that’s powering the generator are strong enough to handle the whole internet idea.

So, use the comment section here to do your job and post news-related items, your juvenable thoughts, poems and recipes.  Whatever.

Hey. Weird. I’m Doing Ok.

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

After a regular season loss, like in December, when the Wings have already built a 15 point lead in The Division That Gary Built?  I find it very difficult to post, almost painfully so.  I’ll tell you something about myself you may not have been aware of prior to the moment of this startling revelation.

My moods are kind of dictated by the success of a certain hockey team.

So today, you’d think I’d be on the verge of stepping into traffic.
