Kukla's Korner Hockey

from David Climer of The Tennessean,
OK, OK. I realize that right now they’re rolling their eyes about all this in Montreal, Toronto, Detroit and those other NHL cities that own multiple Stanley Cups.
To them, the thought of celebrating a first-round playoff victory is a punch line.
Note to all you hockey snobs: Stick it. Or high-stick it, if you will.
OK, OK, David Climer, I gave you a pass yesterday when you mentioned Stanley Cup and Toronto in the same sentence, but today, you must stop. Do you realize when the Leafs last won the Cup, there were six teams in the league. Please, if/when you write about hockey, do some research and no, I am not a hockey snob. But understand, more hockey people than ever will be reading your columns, so be prepared.
One more thing, Montreal does celebrate a first round victory, all you have to do is follow the game to know that.
