Kukla's Korner Hockey

They’ve been lumped together as the best of the Special K Kids, but rookie forwards Phil Kessel and Petr Kalus — both of whom appear to have cracked the Bruins’ season-opening lineup — are actually quite different as hockey players. Kessel is lightning fast with a fearsome hair-trigger shot and a flamboyant style, including offensive skills not often seen in a kid his age (he turns 19 next Monday). Kalus, also 19, is cut from more of a blue-collar cloth, an aggressive forechecker with something of an edge to his game, who skates his wing reliably and is hard to knock off the puck. Both survived yesterday’s cutdown from 36 healthy players to 24, and it’s likely both still will be around after any last-minute roster tinkering.continued
