Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Tarik El-Bashir of Capitals Insider,

Alex Ovechkin just left practice after taking a slap shot off of his right foot. He went to the bench in obvious pain, removed his skate and then was helped to the dressing room by a trainer.

Update:A team spokesman just told reporters that the injury is not believed to be serious. But judging from Ovechkin’s reaction—he smashed a stick or two on the way to the dressing room—this bears still watching.

Serious Analysis Of Central Division Moves

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

1354:  Oooh. Intrigue in Denver.  George Malik caught this just as Dive apologist Adrian Dater put it on his blog at the Denver Post.

Just learned from a reliable source that Peter Forsberg, along with his parents, are in Denver right now and that Forsberg will “make an announcement” at the Avs-Wings game tonight.
That announcement is expected to be that he will officially retire from the NHL.

A few minutes later?  Poof.

Dater/All Things Dive

Sorry for the false alarm folks. No Forsberg retirement announcement here tonight. While a retirement is likely to be official at some point soon, it won’t be tonight at the Avs-Wings game.

Too bad. Would have been nice.
