Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Wallace Matthews at Newsday,
It is obvious Simon’s hit flattened his own team and elevated their bitterest rival. Rangers fans, who were outraged by Simon’s hit last month, have to be overjoyed with it today. While Hollweg hardly missed a shift, the Islanders lost more than just a forward that night. They also lost a spark that they haven’t been able to get back.
Poetic justice? A fair punishment for a play that was uncalled for? Or simply the final straw in a season that, it now seems clear, was a lot more tenuous than it had appeared to that point?
