Video- Buffalo’s Tying Goal Last Night

from Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times,

“Whether it’s the right call or the wrong call, it’s part of the game,” Roloson said. “Players make mistakes. Refs make mistakes. To err is human.”

“What break did we get?” Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said. “There was no break; Bergeron pitch-forked (Stafford). It was a good goal from the get-go.”

Hockey Points

• Some fans need to uderstand the trade deadline, which by the way is February 28th at 3:00pm ET, is for playoff bound teams to improve themselves.  The summer is when some of the weaker teams will try to improve their lineup.

• Answer this question- Would you want the 20110 version of J.S. Giguere leading your team into the playoffs? 

• What goalie will Ken Holland attempt to get to you know, be the backup to the backup goalie?

• What one player not currently on your roster would put your team over the top and make them a serious Stanley Cup contender?  No fantasy here, name the player and what you would give up to acquire him.

• If you have been following those rumor sites, or the sites that make up things, there have been 26 trades and one signing in the last five days.

If you haven’t been following, well, you missed nothing because none of these so-called rumors have come true.

Remember folks, it is all about the hits.

Islanders Start Goalie #5 Tonight

from NHL.com,

New York Islanders goaltender Kevin Poulin was helped off the ice during warmups prior to Tuesday night’s game against Toronto at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum with what appeared to be an injured left leg.

Poulin, a 20-year-old rookie scheduled to start against the Leafs, seemed to catch his left skate in a rut in the crease and fell awkwardly. He skated gingerly off the ice and was helped down the tunnel toward the Islanders’ dressing room.

Mikko Koskinen, a 22-year-old who was to serve as Poulin’s backup, made his NHL debut in his place.

via Matthew Sekeres tweets,

“We don’t have any idea how severe it is” Canucks GM Mike Gillis on Keith Ballard’s injury.

Gillis said the injury was caused by a “violation of the rules” and “not a respected play.” Ballard was slew-footed by Milan Michalek.

Monday Thoughts On Tuesday

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,

• After watching Marc Savard yesterday, I couldn’t help but think: Is anyone else concerned we won’t see Sidney Crosby on-ice this season? I STRESS no one is telling me that. But, as reports indicate no return before March, you’ve really got to wonder. Hopefully, I’m completely wrong and Crosby comes back healthy.

• The injuries to Alex Edler and Evgeni Malkin are proof that GMs should never make a cap-related trade until the absolute last-second. How much talk was there about making room for Sami Salo or not having enough space for Malkin/Crosby/Jordan Staal? Imagine what both teams would look like if they’d made a deal before they had to.

• Thanks to the recall of Mats Zuccarello, the country with the second-most hits to the Rangers’ website is Norway.

more plus some Kessel talk…

Southeast AHL Affiliate Update: 2/8/11

Debuted the new-look version of The Bolts Beat yesterday, complete with some first-time technical goofs, as I suppose we should have expected. (Our intro song was somehow infiltrated by a portion of, co-host Mark Pukalo was effectively muted throughout the broadcast without a headset, the camera didn’t pick up my good side and , overall, “goofy” comes to mind…) In all seriousness, if you tuned in, thanks for sticking with us, despite our clear need for some serious polishing in the show’s new incarnation.

If I had to sum it up briefly, I’d call on fellow old school professional wrestling fans to remember the infamous first appearance of “The Shockmaster” in WCW. (Look it up if you’re unfamiliar. It communicates yesterday’s frustrations pretty well…)

I’d have posted it here, as promised but I think I’ll wait to do that until we shine her up a little more.

Moving right along, it’s time for a look at this past week’s AHL action for the affiliates of the NHL’s Southeast Division teams, which is shorter than usual this week, thanks to the All-Star break.
