It was nice to come home from playing hockey last night and see that the New York Rangers defeated the Vancouver Canucks by a score of 1-0.
Unfortunately for me, I did not get to watch any of the game so I cannot tell you who was great besides Rangers’ goaltender Henrik Lundqvist (30 saves), the team’s defense and newcome Wojtek Wolski, who picked up the team’s only goal.
Luckily for me, my sports editor at Patch.com and long-time Rangers’ fan Bob Birge was kind enough to include me on an e-mail list that featured a bunch of team notes from his point-of-view:
— Wolski becomes the 17th Rangers player credited with at least one game-winning goal, most in the NHL this season.
—- The Rangers lead the league in one-goal games with a record of 13-3-3.
Four years ago, he wrote a wonderful description of our great game of hockey and I think that it deserves to be read by the fine readers of Kukla’s Korner:
— Backyard rinks in Thunder Bay and Saskatoon
— Mothers hauling their eight-year-old prodigies off to those crack-of-dawn practices
— Hot chocalate at the rink
— “O Canada”, the world’s most beautiful national anthem
— “The Maple Leaf Forever”
