Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
In a way, it’s rather sad. The circus has officially left town.
For four or five years there, the Washington Capitals were one thrilling high-wire act, their stars capable of creating chances at both ends of the ice. You score four? We’ll score five. Six? Yep, we can top that.
It was a blast. Unleash the Fury and all that. But it is over.
That doesn’t mean the Caps won’t be a winning hockey club this season or in seasons to come. It’s just hard to imagine they’ll be as enjoyable and imaginative and, at their best, electrifying.
Those days are gone. Now, it’s Dale Hunter hockey. Get it out and get it in deep. Bang bodies. Cycle. Take it hard to the net. Bang some more bodies.
