Kukla's Korner Hockey

Someone Was Watching

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

The Buzz: You can’t get Americans to watch a hockey game without dressing it up with a healthy dollop of good old fist-in-your-face violence.
The BACKHAND: For the record (and you can look it up) the highest-rated Versus Network hockey telecast ever was last week’s game between the swift-skating Buffalo Sabres and the similarly inclined Pittsburgh Penguins. The game didn’t have a single fight, almost no penalties and was a breathtaking, edge-of-your-seat affair that featured Buffalo coming back from a two-goal deficit in the closing minutes of play before Pittsburgh pulled out the win via a walk-off shootout goal from Sidney Crosby before a sellout crown in the supposedly decrepit Mellon Arena.

read on and much more Buzz & Backhand topics…
