Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the NY Times,
Low to the ice, skates flashing, hockey stick en garde, Chris Drury pursues a puck in the cynosure of the playoffs, and he does it with a lifetime's worth of tenacity. Drury's athletic success is extraordinary, if not unparalleled. As a youth, his Greater Bridgeport (Conn.) hockey team won the United States national amateur championship in 1989.
