Kukla's Korner Hockey

The New NHL “Game”

from the Journal News,
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.
