Kukla's Korner Hockey
Don Cherry talked about the Leafs/Bruins first period, the on-ice officials from the Montreal/Ottawa game last night, the San Jose Sharks, the Islanders and the goalie situation in Vancouver.
from Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post,
On some nights, it seems to slice into the very fabric of the country. Canadians, watching the same broadcast, hear two very different voices. Some hear a man lost, wandering two steps behind the play, in a game that has passed him by. Others evangelize the voice of a legend.
And now, in the age of Twitter, it is possible to watch the two sides fight in real time.
They fight over Bob Cole.
A long-time lead announcer for Hockey Night in Canada, Cole made his playoff debut in Montreal on Thursday, calling Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarter-final between the Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators. Garry Galley was his colour analyst.

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
You get jaded sometimes in this business, you forget how lucky you are to do what you do for a living.
But this time of year always rejuvenates my love for the game.
It always reminds me why when I was nine years old, I dreamed of covering the NHL while my pals wanted to play in it. I was the weird kid who did play-by-play during street hockey games (in French and English).
Being an NHL journalist has been my life’s sole journey for as long as I can remember. I have a Grade 8 scrapbook in which I wrote game recaps for each game of the 1986 Stanley Cup finals between Montreal and Calgary.
It was always going to be my living, one way or another.
After a night of partying in LA, the NHL on TSN panel wakes up with a random stranger, and one less member of the panel. Follow their journey as they look to retrace their steps and find the lost Aaron Ward.
I did not watch Coach's Corner tonight, but by all the Twitter comments tonight, you may want to watch.
Don Cherry brought up females in the dressing room.
