A Hint

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the NY Daily News,

About two minutes earlier, sensing it could be MSG's last Rangers telecast of the season, Sam Rosen, the play-by-play man, thanked the crew. Now, with the game over and MSG's postgame show about to begin, Rosen delivered another on-air message to his partner John Davidson. "Big boy, thanks for 20 great years," Rosen said. For a second, Davidson seemed to be at a loss for words. "Yeah, it was a good time, big boy," Davidson said. This is as close as anyone has come to receiving confirmation that Davidson will leave MSG's Rangers booth to become president of the St.Louis Blues.

On The Fence

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kara Yorio of the Sporting News,

Saku Koivu's frightening eye injury (has this guy not been through enough?) should be enough to get the Hurricanes back in this series, tying it up tonight and making a run at getting to the second round after going down 0-2, but don't doubt Montreal's ability to win one for its hospitalized captain.

Pointing At The Refs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Globe and Mail,

For really the first time this spring, a National Hockey League coach on the wrong end of the nightly penalty parade has decided to break rank and throw darts at an officiating duo. And MacTavish didn't stop with one comment, he kept flinging. In a controlled manner, MacTavish offered these pointed remarks in his post-game commentary: - "You know the type of game you're going to get - we talked about it - it's Marc Joannette and Warren, who I've had my issues with over the years.

Does The NHL Care

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

You may remember a post I made about a week ago where Mike Emrick stated NBC and the NHL knows what hockey markets in the USA would attract viewers. Those cities were Detroit, Philadelphia, NYC, Dallas & Denver. Well, Dallas and the NYR look like sure goners and Detroit and Philly are fighting to make the 2nd round. I am sure NBC is hoping for a miracle or two and silently pulling for Detroit and Philly to continue their winning ways. But let's not get to the point where the NHL will "dictate" which team will win the series. This is not the NBA, so I thought I would clear the air before we start hearing the "fix" is in.

How Did Scotty Know

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Yesterday afternoon, Scotty Bowman was on Detroit radio and pointed out one thing he has witnessed during the playoffs. He said players are going down way too much and most of the refs are buying it. Scotty mentioned the NHL needs to do something about this because there are way too many penalties as it is. Watching a few games last night, diving or embellishment was prevalent in many of the games. Were any diving calls made? I am not sure but Bowman is bang on- this needs to be cleared up right now before it really gets out of hand. Time for the refs to start handing out diving calls and don't call the opposing team penalty, that would be a step in the right direction.

Racing Heartbeat Again For Numminen

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff breached playoff protocol and revealed the reason defenseman Teppo Numminen exited Game Three after skating only 30 seconds in the second period. Ruff was compelled to inform reporters because Numminen wasn't hurt. The situation was more serious than that. "He had a racing heartbeat. I'm not going to hide that," Ruff said after Thursday morning's optional practice in the Wachovia Center. "It wasn't anything physical [in terms of an injury]. It's something that he's had before and dealt with it." The Sabres are optimistic Numminen will return for Game Four tonight.

Black Cloud Follows Gauthier

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Denis Gauthier admits that he sometimes takes stupid penalties. "I won't deny that I have had brain [cramps] in my career," the Flyers' hardest-hitting defenseman said. He wished people could see the other side of him. "I'm a laid-back, quiet guy," Gauthier said. "I change my kids' diapers." He believes a black cloud has hovered over him in his career - in Calgary, in Phoenix, and now in Philadelphia.

Bad Ice

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Calgary Sun,

The best ice at the Arrowhead Pond is in the drinks. It sure isn't where the players perform. "At least it's consistent -- you know it's going to be bad," said Flames forward Shean Donovan with a grin. "That's just the way the ice gets here. "When you first come out, the first five minutes, it's pretty good because there's nobody on it. After that, it just deteriorates because it gets so soft and gets so many ruts. Then it gets snowy and the puck gets bouncy."
