Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jim Gintonio of the Arizona Republic,
Defenseman Ed Jovanovski continues to exhibit a mean streak as a dominating presence for the Coyotes, and it’s one of the key reasons the blue line has exceeded most expectations.
His physical play - and the idea planted in opponents’ minds that he could strike at any moment - is nothing new, but it appears to have taken on a new urgency for a team trying to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
Forward Shane Doan does not think the JovoCop of old ever really went away, noting when a team is not having success a lot of things get overlooked.
“He’s been that way,” he said. ” . . . He doesn’t take nights off, the guy’s incredibly intense and loves to win.”
