Morrow Facing Suspension

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Stars Blog,

It’s one step forward and two steps back for the Stars, who ended their three-game California road trip with a 3-2 shootout loss to the Los Angeles Kings and might lose their captain for the next game.

Sticking up for teammate Mike Ribeiro, who was knocked into the boards by Kings forward Dustin Brown, Morrow started a fight with Brown and received an instigator penalty in the final five minutes of a game….

Ribeiro was in a shooting position when Brown hit him, and Ribeiro flew into the boards and hit his head. He received stitches over his left eye, but did return to the game and made an incredible goal to help extend the shootout.

read on and watch a video of the Brown hit below…

added 10:53am, via Bob McKenzie of TSN,

The NHL has rescinded both the automatic one-game suspension to Brenden Morrow and the $10,000 fine to Dallas Stars head coach Dave Tippett.

Morrow received an instigator penalty in the final five minutes of the game when he fought Kings forward Dustin Brown after Brown hit Stars forward Mike Ribeiro into the boards.

Ugly Detroit Loss

from Empty Netters,

What in the world happened to Detroit’s vaunted defense. It totally collapsed in the third period?

Hmmm, I have the same question & many more.  I was at the game and the 3rd period was not good, unless you are a Pens fan.  More on the game tonight.

Report- More Surgery For Forsberg

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

From the never-ending-Peter-Forsberg-medical-news-department: I heard from a Swedish source that our beloved Foppa had another foot surgery a few days ago. I’ll get more definitive word on this soon hopefully, but that’s what I’m hearing.

Evening Line

“I kind of figured it was coming.  A couple times he yelled at me for not moving my feet. I just hope he holds everyone accountable no matter what number they’re wearing on the back.

“It’s all for the team now. I was upbeat and positive cheering guys on.

Winning’s fun, even when you’re sitting.”

-Scott Hartnell of the Flyers after being benched in the 3rd period today, a victory over the New York Islanders.  More from Chuck Gormley of the Courier-Post including the latest lower-body injury to Daniel Briere.

2009 HHOF Class

from Chris Johnston of the CP via the Globe and Mail,

There will probably be a crowded class when the Hall opens its doors again next November.

Steve Yzerman is a lock to enter in his first year of eligibility and it’s hard to imagine Brett Hull, Brian Leetch and Luc Robitaille not joining him. All four of those players were legitimate stars in their prime and each has won a Stanley Cup along with one of the league’s major personal awards….

Adam Oates and Doug Gilmour are the highest eligible players on the NHL’s all-time point list that have been passed over. Oates finished his career with 1,420 points — good for 15th overall — and Gilmour is a spot behind him with 1,414 points.

Pavel Bure, Eric Lindros, Steve Larmer, Mike Vernon and Dino Ciccarelli are among a long list of players who continue to warrant some consideration.

NHL GameCenter Live Review

from Eric Benderoff of Eric 2.0 at the Chicago Tribune,

I’m loving the NHL GameCenter Live product. The video is sharp—no, not HD sharp, but the NHL is working on this—the quality of the feed has been excellent (not a single drop) and I can watch four games at once.

The product was quietly introduced last season but re-invented this year, said Andre Mika, the league’s senior VP for broadband. It’s filled with enhancements, including on-demand content from classic and recent games, a choice of audio feeds and alternate camera angles during select games….

The single game view can be enlarged to fit your computer screen.

An Original Six Flashback

From Paul Kukla at NHL.com:

I admit it, there’s a soft spot in my heart when I hear or think of the Original Six. Those two words bring back so many fond memories because I am actually old enough to remember when only six teams played in the NHL.

Growing up in Detroit, I was lucky enough to have a father who worked in the auto industry and was the recipient of a boatload of tickets to all the sporting events, especially Red Wings games.  I attended about 30-35 games a season for a span of about 10 years, and during that time, my love of the game was established.

Carney Quietly Retires

from Terry Nau of the Pawtucket Times,

Keith Carney revealed his retirement over the weekend in the quiet, unassuming manner we have come to expect from this modest city native who competed for 17 years in the National Hockey League.

Carney — the ultimate family man — let his wife Amy announce the news via email to family members and friends. Talk about old soldiers slowly fading away.
