Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Roy MacGregor at the Globe and Mail,
It was a game dramatically sent into overtime by the local heroes with six seconds left in regulation. It was decided, in favour of the Ottawa Senators, on a rifle-like shot from the point that would not have been stopped by a Zamboni.
It featured two of the most talented teams in the league and undoubtedly the two quickest in a sport that finally woke up to the fact that it was putting its fans to sleep.
In rewarding speed over impediment and skill over obstruction, this National Hockey League playoff game produced a work of sports art that offered the shock and soaring hope of lightning quick transition, the breathtaking beauty of puck control and, from time to time, the utter chaos and randomness that separates the Canadian game from those far more familiar to American sports fans.
