Kukla's Korner Hockey

from John Shipley of the Pioneer Press,
At 29, Todd Fedoruk finally is becoming the hockey player he always has wanted to be. It’s happening just in time for the Wild.
Desperately seeking goals in a tight, physical playoff series with the Colorado Avalanche, the Wild have scored two that can be traced to Fedoruk within a degree of separation: his power-play goal in Game 1 and Pavol Demitra’s long slapper in Game 2, which sneaked by a Fedoruk screen.
The two goals perfectly encapsulate what Fedoruk is giving the Wild as they prepare for Game 3 on Monday night at Pepsi Center in this best-of-seven, first-round series — size, grit and toughness, with an occasional touch of offense.
