Good Talk- NHL Style

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

Maybe it’s because we’re still basking in a post-Christmas glow, but there is much good to report….

Having seen so many teams run hot and cold so far this mercurial season, we will withhold judgment as to whether these Flames are for real, but we will restate something we’ve believed from the get go: Mike Keenan still knows how to coach.

It’s taken a while for him to put his stamp on this team and surely much of the credit for the recent victories has to go to the improved play of goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff and the sterling play of captain Jarome Iginla, but there’s a noticeable up tick in overall accountability regarding team defence in Calgary and that is a Keenan trademark.

many more NHL bits…
