Kukla's Korner Hockey

To anyone outside of Detroit, it probably sounds obscene.
But to those of us in Hockeytown, there’s nothing sexual about the The Grind Line.
The mere mention of it conjures up images of the Red Wings’ fourth line—Joe Kocur, Kris Draper and Kirk Maltby—mucking it up in the corners during a magical run to a Stanley Cup title in 1997.
It was the Red Wings’ first championship in more than four decades. And while the lasting snapshot will be captain Steve Yzerman raising the Cup near center ice as streamers rained down on Joe Louis Arena, another picture perfect comes to mind, too: Maltby battling Colorado’s Eric Messier for a loose puck during the Western Conference finals.
