Talking Hockey Again

from Pierre McGuire at NBC Sports,

There will be a great Game 6 between Detroit and Anaheim tonight. People are being blown away by the amazing goaltending of J.S. Giguere of the Ducks, and the tremendous efficiency of Wings star defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom.
No longer are people talking about the trap, the dead puck era, or clutch and grab hockey. The stories now are about speed, skill, hitting, villains, heroes, controversy, and passion.
Fans in Anaheim love their team. Fans in Detroit love their team and hope they will see the Wings play host to a Game 7 on Thursday.
Fans in Ottawa are thrilled that they now have Daniel Alfredsson as their captain. This playoff season he has been the most reliable Senator. Last year, they wanted him run out of town following the Sens elimination at the hands of the Sabres.

Carlyle This Morning

Q. Any lineup changes, injuries, anything like that for tonight?
COACH RANDY CARLYLE: We’ll make those decisions as the day goes on. We think that we have some interchangeable parts. And as we go forward, there’s some people that have been in and out and we have some youth sitting on the sidelines, so we’ll make that decision as we go into the rest of the day. It’s not set yet.

The Richard Riot

from Hall of Fame Magazine,

Hours before the opening face-off, crowds, most of whom did not have tickets, gathered on St. Catharines St. and adjoining streets around the forum, and they were in a surly mood. At the Montreal Gazette, the editor, sensing that the usual number of reporters staffing a Canadiens game would not be sufficient to cover what might happen, assigned a young sports writer named Red Fisher to rush to the Forum, not to cover any aspect of the game, but to handle whatever other newsworthy event might occur.
Fisher, who was to become a journalistic legend in Montreal, had never before covered anything at the Forum, but as soon as he arrived he sensed that what was growing among the crowds, both inside and outside the building, was a possible riot. He was correct.

Protest The NBC Decision

from Clay Travis at CBS SportsLine,

1. Send a horse’s head to NBC studios. This worked well in The Godfather and will provide a nice opening bang.
2. Have Don Cherry record a monologue lambasting this decision and put it up on YouTube. Expletives included.

Ottawa Overcomes Hardships

from the Ottawa Citizen,

Without hardships along the way, life’s greatest moments wouldn’t feel nearly as great.
In the aftermath of the Ottawa Senators’ breakthrough to the Stanley Cup final, a reporter asked club president and chief executive officer Roy Mlakar to name the low point of the long, hard journey.
“The low point for me,” Mlakar said, standing in the back of playoff media conference room at Scotiabank Place, “was telling the team they wouldn’t get paid.”

Fans Reaction Surprises Sens

from the Ottawa Sun,

The Senators had a taste of what they mean to a hockey town gone bananas after snagging a reservation in the Stanley Cup final with “King Daniel Of Ottawa” Alfredsson’s OT winner against the Sabres.
Most impressive to the players was the thousands of fans who welcomed them home at the airport.
Even speaking of it yesterday after practice, chills started running up and down their spines again.
Chris Kelly: “I’ve seen a lot of things, but nothing like coming off the plane at the airport. There must have been 5,000 people there. To see that many supporting us, especially on a long weekend when people are out of town, was really fun.”
