Coach Lou

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from North Jersey,

Throughout his 20 games as interim coach, Lamoriello has dismissed suggestions that he is enjoying the experience, almost insisting that he's too busy to have fun. But his actions and evident emotions have told a different story. "It's definitely been a pleasant experience for everybody," goaltender Martin Brodeur said. "The success we've had with him has been awesome. He just motivates a lot. He pays attention to details day in and day out so we don't slip. Right now we just know him as a coach. We don't know him as a GM."

Common Census Sports Map

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Where do the fans for your NHL team live? How far do they extend? Are there any surprises? The CommonCensus Sports Map Project needs you to help us answer these questions! It is producing maps that show exactly where the fans for each team are located, based on the geographic votes of Internet users. More on this project from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer,

The CCSP is conducting a survey to find out where the fans of major sports teams are located. You go there and enter your street address and select which teams you support (you don't have to register or give your name), and the information is added to the database. Multicolored maps show the geographic breakdowns for MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL and NCAA Division I-A football.

Sydor Gets 70 Stiches

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Daryl Sydor took a puck to his face early in the 2nd period today. from the Tampa Tribune,

"It's very scary [to see an injury like that]," said Lightning F Martin St. Louis, who helped a woozy Sydor from the ice. "I don't think he was dazed, I just think he was shocked - just like the rest of us. It could be any of us because the puck travels at an incredible speed and sometimes you don't see it coming." After being helped to the dressing room, Sydor received 70 stitches to reconnect the skin of what team medical personnel labeled a severe facial laceration near Sydor's mouth. Doctors didn't finish stitching Sydor's gash until right before the Lightning's 6-0 win ended. He did not speak to reporters after the game.

Hatcher and Primeau met with Clarke and coach Ken Hitchcock on Sunday.

Girls Hockey Now Considered Normal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Naperville Sun,

Cammi Granato remembers standing out. It wasn't because of her talent, which would later nab her an Olympic gold medal. She stood out because she was different. She was a girl playing hockey. "I'd walk into a rink and there would be people staring at me and whispering," said Granato, a two-time Olympic captain. "I just didn't like that feeling. I just wanted to be a part of the team and blend in." That wasn't always possible for Granato, who graduated from Downers Grove North in 1989. In the late 1970s and early '80s when Granato started, girls just didn't play hockey.

The Future Leader Of The Avs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Longmont Daily Times,

Joe Sakic is the face of the Colorado Avalanche. Every game he plays, he has chances to move up the all-time scoring list. He’s a sure bet for the Hockey Hall of Fame, and his performance in the playoffs is legendary. But he’s 36. He still is an elite player, but the special moments he produces don’t happen quite so often. He’s the captain, but the future of the Avs lies elsewhere. Right now, that future looks more and more like Alex Tanguay.

Hockey In Mexico

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Arizona Republic,

Ice hockey is not very popular in Mexico's largest city. There are only three full-size rinks there. That's one ice sheet for every 3 million - give or take - citizens. Nevertheless, there are hockey programs for kids who live there and want to learn the game and play it regularly.
