Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Carter Gaddis at The Tampa Tribune,
It’s alive. The ice, that is. Not in the biological, breathing-in-and-out sense that defines much of the life on this planet.
But to Tim Friedenberger, it often seems as if the massive sheet of frozen water at the St. Pete Times Forum has a mind of its own. And if it can think…
“It is alive,” said Friedenberger, the Forum’s vice president of facility operations. “It’s a living thing. I’d say every facility, the ice has a personality.”
Like any living thing, a sheet of ice has its good days and bad. A unique facet of the NHL is how vulnerable the aesthetics of the game itself can be to the vagaries of the playing surface.
