Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,
The Sabres knocked off the Ted Nolan-coached New York Islanders in the first round of the playoffs. They’re not looking past the Rangers, but it shouldn’t stop anybody else. If Buffalo can dispatch New York and Ottawa beats New Jersey, the Sabres would reacquaint themselves with Senators General Manager John Muckler.
Of course, this journey wouldn’t be complete without Dominik Hasek. The Dominator was back to his old tricks in Detroit. He helped keep the Red Wings’ hopes for another Stanley Cup alive when they beat the Calgary Flames in the first round.
Reminder for first-time riders on the Sabres’ bandwagon and anybody who hasn’t graduated from high school: Nolan, Muckler, Hasek and Sabres managing partner Larry Quinn were embroiled in a power struggle for the ages after Buffalo won the Northeast Division title in 1997.
