Kukla's Korner Hockey

Same Type Of Day Five Years Ago

from Rich Libero at NHL.com (note- Rich Libero is NHL.com's Vice President of Editorial and Production),
Driving in on the New Jersey Turnpike this morning I couldn't help but notice that the cloudless blue skies and bright sunshine were identical to the conditions five years ago on that fateful September 11. As you head off Exit 14 toward the "Bayonne Extension" that takes you to the Holland Tunnel, the lower portion of Manhattan unfurls before you. For tourists visiting New York City for the first time, the panorama gives folks from smaller towns a hint of the sheer size and scale of Manhattan as they travel in from Newark Airport. With those two Twin Towers missing like Bobby Clarke's old gap-toothed grin, the skyline appears to still be aching from the destruction of our famous buildings. There's no doubt the pain lingers for New Yorkers, Americans and the folks here at the National Hockey League.
