Kukla's Korner Hockey

Robert Esche was back in his locker stall yesterday afternoon just a day after being pulled in a lopsided loss to the New Jersey Devils, and the way he was acting was, well, strange. Not strange bad, but strange good. I don't look to him for confidence anymore. I just decided that the only one I could control was myself. I don't really think about [the playoff job] anymore, I don't think about what he's going to do or who he's going to play. The only thing I think about is how I'm going to stop the puck. "He hasn't told me a thing. And I won't be surprised if he names Niittymaki; well, let me make that I won't be shocked. 'Niitty' has played well and he can get the job done. But I honestly don't care anymore. I can't control it. I only think about stopping the puck. I don't even look at the bench anymore."more
