Eric Godard & Elvis Have Something In Common

from Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

Hall of Fame center Ron Francis is fond of telling about the time he asked Mario Lemieux how he prepared for training camp, and Lemieux responded that, about a month beforehand, he stopped ordering french fries with his club sandwich.

But such attitudes and actions are no more a part of the NHL today than bench-clearing brawls and the Oakland Seals. Conditioning coaches are a staple of every team’s staff, and they have more than a passing interest in what players consume.

“I’m always preaching nutrition and trying to get the right things in you,” said Mike Kadar, who fills that role for the Penguins.

He does not, however, have a comprehensive list of foods that bears his stamp of approval. And, if he did, there’s not much chance that winger Eric Godard’s meal of choice would show up there.

Kadar, you see, is one of those folks who simply doesn’t recognize the nutritional merits of an occasional fried peanut butter-and-banana sandwich.

No Suspension For Godard

from the Calgary Sun,

Godard was assessed his third instigator penalty Saturday night in Colorado against the Avalanche, but the two-game suspension that’s to come with that infraction was rescinded by the league yesterday—and he was able to play in the team’s 3-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

“I really thought they would have, so I was happy they did,” Godard said. “I’m not gonna say anything about the refs. I think they did a pretty good job that night. That’s a call in the rule book, so they’ve got to make the call. They reviewed the tape, and there was obviously some other circumstances going on.”

Jabs, Pushing and Suspensions

via the Calgary Flames,

Avalanche tough guy Scott Parker went out in the second period to do his thing—stir it up. He got it when he cross-checked Dion Phaneuf in the throat and then jabbed his stick at Phaneuf while he was on the ice.

In comes Eric Godard for the anticipated heavyweight bout, in which Parker gets the upper hand. Problem for Parker is he took a major for the crosscheck so it didn’t help his team in the power play department.

Word out of Denver was that Parker could face further discipline under the intent to injure rule for his crosscheck on Phaneuf.

The Flames also received the news that Godard would be suspended for two games because he received his third instigator penalty of the season.

Coincidentally, all three players were involved in a pushing and shoving session during the warm-up.
