Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Vallejo Times-Herald,
A sheet of paper taped to the locker-room wall in Detroit that listed “Warren’s Playoff Goals.” The shoulder patches with his initials - WAS - sewn on each jersey. Those same initials on lapel buttons worn by coaches and front-office staff.
But it goes beyond that. Nearly three weeks into a playoff run that began with the death of goalie coach Warren Strelow, Evgeni Nabokov makes it clear that Strelow is still very much on his mind.
“You know what? I think about his advice even more than I used to,” Nabokov said. “You used to have the guy by your shoulder all the time and telling you this and now he’s not here. But you’re trying to remember what he would say and what he would think and how he would react.”
