Tribute To Hockey Moms

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Chicago Blackhawks,

Blackhawk forwards Mark Bell and Michael Holmqvist and goaltender Craig Anderson are among the more than 200 NHL players who will take part in the first-ever “Tribute To Hockey Moms” at 10:00 a.m. on March 17, 2006 at the United Center. During the Blackhawks morning practice in preparation for that evening’s game against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, Anderson, Bell and Holmqvist will use pink hockey sticks carrying the breast cancer research logo. The specially designed TPS sticks will then be autographed and later auctioned off at various local and national fund raising events that support breast cancer research.

Coach Ruff Asks For Prayers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

The Buffalo Sabres could be without coach Lindy Ruff in the coming weeks while he and his wife tend to their 11-year-old daughter, Madeleine, who has an unidentified mass on her brain. Ruff had been mysteriously absent in recent days while attending to "family matters." He skipped a news conference Thursday night following the Sabres' victory over Tampa Bay and did not show up for practice Friday, which led to speculation as the Sabres prepared for the Philadelphia Flyers. "There's no need to guess," Ruff said Saturday afternoon, before the Sabres took the ice against the Flyers. "It's something a lot of people have dealt with. Really, all we ask is that you say a prayer."

The Forum

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette via the Star Phoenix,

The Forum was so much more than a building. It was warm. It was caring. It had character, far more than the elephant-sized cold lump of concrete and glass that is the Bell Centre, where loud is good and outrageous ear-shattering music is better - all in the guise of marketing. The reality is that nothing can replace the Forum, because it was much more than a building for so many of us. It was a second home to the people who worked there, to the well-dressed men bobbing up and down under their fedoras and to the women wearing their Sunday best on so many Saturday nights.

Hurricanes Among The Best

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Rocky Mount Telegram,

So what do you do: remain angry and bitter about the Cole hit? Or rejoice because Hurricanes management found a way to at least replace Cole's goals with a steady veteran hand? Go with the latter. It's much more becoming. You want to be a big boy? Then stop acting like a petulant child. The Hurricanes are on top of the NHL. Any list of the NHL young stars includes Cole and Eric Staal. Rutherford is being hailed as a genius. Laviolette is a brilliant tactician and motivator. Stop behaving like the Detroit Red Wings stole your milk money and when you complained about it, commissioner Gary Bettman said "Tough. Why don't you just get out of the way? You can't play with them."

Looking Forword To Next Year

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Palm Beach Post,

The positive energy and optimism surrounding the Panthers and their future has been almost palpable since the team took the significant step of re-signing Olli Jokinen and Chris Gratton last Thursday. Pardon the pinch of pessimism, but why? The team sits 13th in its 15-team conference, ranks last in the East in scoring, and its goaltender is on track to break records for shots against and saves that he set two years ago.

Strachan Wound Up

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,

The National Hockey League seems to be unclear on the concept. People go to hockey games in the hope of seeing entertainment, not to see the latest manifestation of tiny minds obsessed with archaic legalities (yes, that means lawyers). On Wednesday, the league's leading scorer was prevented from displaying his skills in a shootout because extensive measurements determined that his stick was not within lawyer-mandated parameters.

Bolts Fighting For Playoffs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

The Tampa Bay Lightning is headed for an embarrassing statistic if its present slide -- six losses in the past seven games -- keeps up. The club could become the first NHL team since the 1995-96 New Jersey Devils to miss the playoffs the season after winning the Stanley Cup. "We just don't have any confidence," Tortorella said. "After the third (Leafs) goal we just gave up." Although he wouldn't name anyone in particular Tortorella said that looking around the Lightning dressing room he still saw lots of talent, but there was no spark.

Players Lacking Respect

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philadelphia Inquirer via the Mercury News,

It looked frightening on television: Pittsburgh's Brooks Orpik rams Carolina's Erik Cole headfirst into the boards. Cole suffers broken vertebrae in his neck and will miss two months. Whatever you think of the NHL's product these days, one thing seems to be a constant: The respect players show one another on the ice remains at an all-time low. Now, when a player bends over along the boards, he is considered fair game to get pummeled.

Parker & Witt

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

In the 2nd period of the Sharks/Preds game, Scott Parker of San Jose took a 2 minute elbowing penalty. He was also given 2 minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct and also a 10 min. misconduct. As he was heading to the dressing room, he made a little stop, climbed the glass between the benches and met Brendan Witt of the Preds. Will was given a game along with Parker for that incident. Preds scored on the PP and lead 1-0. image

Detroit Area Fans- HD May Be Close On FSD

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Word is Fox Sports Net- Detroit is close to converting to high definition and they want it done by opening day of the MLB season. The next question is will the Red Wings games be broadcast in HD too. Time will tell but talks are moving forward. update April 12th at 9:30am, Welcome Spartan Tailgate Forum members, I see frequent Kukla's Korner reader PRS has directed you to this post and I thought I would give you a little bit of new information. Fox Sports Net Detroit has even put out a "private" schedule listing 52 HD games for the Tigers. The first one is a road game against Seattle on April 22nd. Although nothing is official, we can still hope this will come true.
