The Bernier hit was the main topic tonight on Coach’s Corner but also discussed was players wearing rings on their fingers and some Quick and Brodeur talk too.
added 10:16pm, If you don’t have a North American IP, you can’t see the above video, but I have added one below you can watch.
Steve Bernier received 5 for boarding and a game and while on the penalty kill, the Devils allowed 3 power play goals.
The score at the end of the 1st period is 3-0 LA.
added 10:00pm, CBC call of the hit is below.
Now that school has started for me, the ease of getting to a computer becomes limited to early in the morning, and very late at night. For my absense on the website for the past couple of days I apologize. Now that things are slowly calming down, I figured I would get back into things here on KK. I have news on the Devils bankruptcy rumor, some player who will be joining the Devils on a tryout, and some other interesting bits of information.

Brent Burns has been suspended 2 games for butt-ending Steve Bernier
You can watch the butt-end here if you missed it earlier.
TORONTO (Nov. 13, 2010) – Minnesota Wild defenseman Brent Burns has been suspended for two games, without pay, for careless use of his stick in an incident with Florida Panthers’ player Steve Bernier at the conclusion of NHL game #230 on November 12, 2010.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Burns will forfeit $38,172.04. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
At the end of the game which Florida won 2-1.
20:00 Minnesota Brent Burns: 5 minutes, fighting
20:00 Minnesota Brent Burns: 10 minutes, game misconduct
20:00 Minnesota Cal Clutterbuck: 2 minutes, roughing
20:00 Florida Bryan Allen: 2 minutes, cross checking
Their are reports Burns also received a five minute major for the butt-end so the penalty log may change.

Brent Burns: “I didn’t mean to do that. He just came at me, and I think it was my glove that got him.”

Futility in Sunrise has persisted for far too long, with the Florida Panthers on the brink of a dubious record after nine consecutive non-playoff seasons. Incoming general manager Dale Tallon has moved quickly in putting his stamp on the team with several transactions since taking over, but nothing to this point appears bold enough to turn his club from last season’s Southeast Division cellar dwellers into a postseason participant.
Sadly, more patience may be in order for long-suffering Panthers fans.
Even so, all is not lost for the NHL’s southernmost franchise, with several key pieces already in place for the future (and others right around the corner) and it isn’t as though the current roster is without talent as is. Still, a couple of major stumbling points remain for the Panthers. The 24 games they will play versus fellow Southeast clubs, three of whom look to be vastly improved and the fourth being the stalwart Washington Capitals, certainly won’t help and the expiring contracts for defenseman Bryan McCabe and goaltender Tomas Vokoun will have to be dealt with (and quite possibly dealt altogether), without either situation becoming a distraction.

As the new season approaches, I’ll be making an effort to preview the Southeast Division in a slow and steady, comprehensive manner. To kick things off, I thought I’d take a look back at last year’s individual player statistics, updated to reflect this summer’s off-season transactions. (In other words, for example, we’ll group Dustin Byfuglien’s 2009-10 statistics with Chicago alongside his new Atlanta Thrashers teammates and their performances from last year.)
In short, we’ll look at last year’s stats with this year’s rosters, both by division as a whole and by individual teams, broken down by position… Because a look to the recent past can often be a good indicator of what’s to come. (Often… Not always. See: Cheechoo, Jonathan.) And, besides, I don’t know that you’ll find a list like this in too many places (at least I hope you won’t… Cause that would mean I spent too much time on all of this!)
To get things started, we’ll start tonight with the forwards.

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,
Bernier quickly learned that Buffalo is a true hockey city, a drastic change from his two-plus seasons in the Silicon Valley. The right winger could have gone a decade in San Jose without anyone greeting him in public. Here he was, a new face in a foreign place, recognizable and enjoying his first taste of Buffalo.
“Oh, my God,” Bernier said Thursday. “I don’t think I could explain it. I was in shock. When I was in the plane, I was nervous. It was a big trade and I knew Buffalo lost a very good player. I didn’t know how the fans were going to respond to that. It made me feel so good when I saw that. It took a lot of weight away from me.”
