Fire On Ice

from the Ice Block,

CNN has video of a Zamboni catching fire. There’s little audio, no report, and no links to a report.

A quick search led me to find the rink was in Aston, PA: Zamboni fire forces Aston ice rink evacuation.

Cote Suspended 3 Games - Flyers “Under Watch”

From Ed Moran at the Philadelphia News,

The Flyers have been put on notice by the NHL.

After Riley Cote was handed a three-game suspension for a head shot to Dallas forward Mat Niskanen in Saturday’s game, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman told Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren that the league would be watching the Flyers closely.

“I talked to [Bettman] today. He thinks, like I do, that these are different coincidences, different situations, that have to be viewed differently, but the question was raised about ramifications if it happens again,” Holmgren told the Daily News. “So obviously we’re under watch.”

The Best In The East

from Stan Fischler at Game On,

You pessimists who frequent The Rangers Despair Society can dispatch your crying towels to the laundry pile; the Blueshirts are on the move, up, up, and UP.

A victory on Monday night against Carolina at The Garden SHOULD, if accomplished, establish New York as “la creme de la creme” of the East.

Scott Nichol Facing Possible Suspension

via the Tennessean,

Predators center Scott Nichol is scheduled to talk with NHL officials here this afternoon and could face a suspension for the double-minor, high-sticking penalty he picked up in Montreal on Saturday.

Nichol was given the four-minute penalty late in the second period of the Predators’ 5-4 shootout victory, after officials whistled him for what appeared to be a crosscheck to the chin of Montreal defenseman Patrice Brisebois.

Losing As A Team

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

“It’s not fair (to blame the goalies). It’s not the goalie’s fault,” said Senators centre Jason Spezza.

“It’s all of our faults. It doesn’t matter if you’re getting points or you’re playing well. It’s every forward. It’s every defenceman and it’s both goalies.

“We’re in this together. I’ve said that the whole time. The only way we’re going to win is if everybody plays well and plays better. We’ve just got to raise our level of play so that we’re a better hockey club.”

Morning Line

from Jack Todd of the Montreal Gazette,

Burke has always been a blunderbuss - Don Cherry with a law degree.

In the wake of Anaheim’s Stanley Cup win last spring, he’s morphed into a blowhard who believes he’s a genius - but a genius who doesn’t look half as smart without Scott Niedermayer and Teemu Selanne.
