Kukla's Korner Hockey

Late in Saturday's defeat, Kolzig had seen enough. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound goalie shoved Thrashers left wing Brad Larsen into the goal post after Larsen bumped him. Kolzig was assessed a minor penalty for roughing. "I was frustrated at that point," Kolzig said. "It was 5-1 or something. Five, six years ago, you couldn't put a skate lace in the crease. Now it's no holds barred. [Peter] Bondra was on top of me, Larsen ran into me, [Marc] Savard ran into me." Kolzig stopped short of saying the league has singled out goalies, but said he wants referees to crackdown on goalie interference with the same vigor as abolishing the game of obstruction.
