Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Jason Kay at The Hockey News,
Besides, the NBC telecasts are excellent. I love the element Pierre McGuire provides between the benches, delivering heat-of-the moment interviews and the occasional report on trash talk.
When Tomas Holmstrom was injured late in Game 3 after being dumped by Hal Gill, McGuire told us one of the Penguins skated by the bench (Tyler Kennedy if memory serves correctly) and said in a disbelieving tone to the combative Swede, “That hurt you?”
That was followed by another Penguin telling Wings forward Kirk Maltby it was time he retired.
It wasn’t earth-shattering, but it’s the kind of inside-the-game feel you don’t get anywhere else.
