Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Denver Post,
With the thunderous force of a hammer striking an anvil, the puck rang off the post of his goal, and Peter Budaj did not flinch.
What makes or breaks a goalie in the NHL can be found in the eyes. The best ones never blink.
Colorado will not win the Stanley Cup this year.
But, maybe, just maybe, the Avs have found a goalie who can take them to a championship.
It is safe to hang a No. 31 replica jersey in your closet.
Budaj is going to hang around. At age 24, he has grown up. One of the toughest jobs in Denver sports would make a lesser man crack.
