Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Human Side

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,
Peter Laviolette did a good job of maintaining his carefully sculpted image as a bland, unemotional hockey coach until the last press conference after the last game of the Carolina Hurricanes' playoff series against the Buffalo Sabres. Shortly after the Hurricanes beat the Sabres on Thursday night to advance to the Stanley Cup final against the Edmonton Oilers, Laviolette came to the podium with an unopened bottle of wine. He sat it firmly on the table and said nothing about it at first.
