Kukla's Korner Hockey

from George Johnson at ESPN,
For those convinced the softie-toffee Detroiters might shrivel up into the fetal position in the face of a withering Calgary assault—reconsider. These Wings will compete. They will not back off. They will even initiate. This is a far different proposition than the upset-minded Flames pummeled into submission in six games three years ago.
Younger. Stronger. Hungrier. No Hullie or Shanny or Stevie Y. Great players all, no argument. But there’s a lift in the legs and in the attitude of this group. If the Flames are waiting for the Detroiters to automatically run down like a $5 knockoff Gucci watch bought off a blanket on a street corner, they could be out of this thing faster than Pavel Datsyuk speeding down the boards with a half-step on a defenseman.
thanks to a KK member for the pointer…
