Wellwood Shaping-Up Just Fine

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

When the season started he was known locally as “Kyle Well-fed.”

Nobody was projecting the former Toronto Maple Leaf to be a Stanley Cup hero in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinal, much less acknowledged by coach Alain Vigneault as “our best player.”

Sundin Will Be A Target For The Blackhawks

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

What kind of shape is Mats Sundin really in?

Well, we’re about to find out.

“He’s a target,” promised agitating Chicago Blackhawks winger Adam Burish. “If you asked him, he’d know he has a target on his back.”...

“They’ve got to understand that they’re going to have earn their space,” said Burish, fresh off of driving Jarome Iginla to distraction in Chicago’s six-game victory over Calgary in Round 1. “They have to earn every inch of ice.”

Odjick Appreciates Message From The Pope

from Fernando Carneiro of MetroNews,

Former Vancouver Canuck Gino Odjick, an Algonquin from Maniwaki, Que., said that being at the Vatican this week to hear the Pope express his sorrow for the “anguish” Canadian Aboriginals suffered in residential schools was bigger than any hockey game he’s ever played.

Odjick, a Canuck for eight years, said he remembers a time at about age 14 when he stepped on the ice, looked at the non-native kids and felt inferior.

“I used to look up to NHL players and it was like they could walk on water,” Odjick said from Italy on Thursday. “I didn’t think native kids could ever get there.”

Afternoon Line

I saw enough of Roberto Luongo in the opening round sweep of St. Louis to determine that no conference opponent will defeat the Canucks four times in seven games. That task will be left to the Boston Bruins during the Stanley Cup final, and the Beantowners will prevail.

It Could Be Luongo’s Time

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

Roberto Luongo has centre stage virtually to himself.

This is his chance to deliver a grand soliloquy, to explain through the art of goaltending why he matters while his country listens intently.

At 30, it’s remarkable that despite all the laurels tossed Luongo’s way, his accomplishments in the sport up until now have been minimal.

Afternoon Line

“I’ll guarantee you one thing, they won’t be getting to Louie as easily as they got to [Miikka] Kiprusoff, and we’ll take it from there. Actions speak louder than words.”

-Shane O’Brien of the Vancouver Canucks talking about the Chicago Blackhawks.  More on the series from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province.

Ducks Defeat Sharks - Western Conference Semi-Finals Are Set

With a 4-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks, the Anaheim Ducks advance to the 2nd round of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Ducks will travel to Detroit for games 1 and 2 while the Chicago Blackhawks will visit Vancouver for the first two games.

Since Chicago defeated the Flames in Calgary tonight, I wonder if they will just stay in western Canada and then make the short flight to Vancouver instead of goin back to Chicago and then quickly heading out to Vancouver.
