Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Joe Siville of Flyers.com,
Today at the Wells Fargo Center, Flyers right wing Ian Laperriere took part in an official TV spot conceived and produced by the VERSUS network.
The commercial focuses on the now famous event in which Laperriere dives to block a shot from the point from then New Jersey Devils (now Pittsburgh Penguins) defenseman Paul Martin during Game Five of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series and was struck just above the eye.
Needless to say Laperriere didn’t need to memorize a script having lived it, but surprisingly re-enacting the moment over and over again didn’t exactly cause a sense of déjà vu.
“I don’t know,” laughed Laperriere. “I think when it’s going to be all together and I’m going to see the commercial come out, I think it will bring it back a little more when it really happened. But for today, there were too many cuts for me to be in that moment again.”
