Kukla's Korner Hockey

Jaromir Jagr, fresh off explaining how his stick managed to snap in half during his failed shootout attempt, started reminiscing about the bad old days of defensive hockey — like, for instance, in 2003-04. "Did you like it?" Jagr said, before extolling the virtues of the league's new emphasis on offense. "I like (this). There's a lot of chances." The season is only three weeks' old, but the effects of the NHL's crackdown on obstruction are plainly clear, perhaps never more so than in the Islanders' 3-2 shootout victory over the Rangers last night at Madison Square Garden. The teams conclude their home-and-home series tonight at Nassau Coliseum.
