Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Joe Starkey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Penguins winger Lee Stempniak unintentionally delivered the funniest line of the playoffs Saturday morning at Southpointe.
“I don't think anyone's really worried about Sid or Geno,” Stempniak said.
He's partially right. Nobody's too worried about Evgeni Malkin since his hat trick in Game 6 at Columbus.
As for Sid, well, nobody but an entire region (Western Pennsylvania) and an entire country (Canada) seems all that obsessed with his travails. My goodness, in Canada they're running Zapruder-style films of his speed variations and wondering, with reason, if he is injured.
All I know is this: Crosby often seems strangely disengaged in these playoffs. And it's a fact that if he doesn't find the net Sunday in Game 2 of this Eastern Conference semifinal, he will be mired in the longest goal-scoring drought of his career.
