Coach Maven

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

So, what must the Devils do to remain alive? For starters, Martin Brodeur MUST play as flawless a game as possible. Secondly, it’s imperative that New Jersey score the first goal – for two reasons: A. Simply to prove that they are capable of getting on the sheet; and B. To instill some confidence in what has been a pop-gun offense. Do what Ottawa does; stand your biggest player in front of the net and just fire away...

Jump On Joe’s Back

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Fox Sports,

This is the time of year when special players rise to the occasion and that's exactly what Joe Sakic has been doing in Colorado for the Avalanche β€” proving once again he's no ordinary Joe. Realizing that his team is not yet assured a spot in the postseason with only 13 games to go, Sakic has turned up his game a few notches in the last seven tilts, registering six goals and four assists, while leading Colorado to a 4-2-1 record.

from Kara Yorio of the Sporting News,

Jack Adams Award (coach of the year): Peter Laviolette, Hurricanes. The Sabres' Lindy Ruff, the Kings' Andy Murray and the Rangers' Tom Renney have done outstanding jobs, but no one has gotten more out of a team-especially one that entered the season with such low expectations-than Laviolette.

What Happened To Vancouver

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from George Johnson, special to ESPN,

What's happening out in Vancouver is difficult to believe, if not explain. Enough, in fact, to make Marc Crawford's hair stand on end (oh, wait, it already was, by design). A team that, only a few short months ago, many still stubbornly believed was only a front-line goaltender away from Stanley Cup contention woke up Wednesday morning in a seventh-place tie with Anaheim in the Western Conference, just a point ahead of both Edmonton and L.A.

Ovechkin Must Think Team First

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Philosophically, getting Ovechkin to think team thoughts is the same issue that the Atlanta Thrashers are facing with their brilliant young Russian forward, Ilya Kovalchuk and it's also the same issue that super prospect Evgeni Malkin's Russian Superleague team, Metallurg Magnitogorsk, faces at home as well. The only downside to the wonderfully talented group of Russian players suddenly emerging on the international scene is this: That after a lifetime of learning they can win one-on-one confrontations, they want to play as individuals more than they do within the context of a team game.
