Proving Themselves In Vegas

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Traikos of the National Post,

Alexander Wennberg or William Karlsson?

If the Columbus Blue Jackets could do it all over again, which player do you think they would protect?...

The Blue Jackets protected Wennberg, who is 23, rather than Karlsson, who is one year older. After 22 games, Wennberg has a goal and 10 points. Karlsson, who has 14 goals and 25 points in 27 games, would be far and away Columbus’ leader in goals and points.

Then again, it was only after joining the expansion team that he was given the chance to showcase his previously dormant talents.

“I was an offensive guy in Sweden,” Karlsson, who had 25 points in 81 games last season and has already exceeded his previous high of six goals, told NHL.com this week. “I kind of knew I always had it in me. I knew I had a chance here and I really wanted to take it.”

Detroit’s Penalty Kill Has Been Good

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Looking at Thursday’s NHL statistics, the Red Wings’ penalty kill has dropped to 10th at 82 percent, after being in single digits for a lengthy period of time. But it’s been a brief slip.

After killing five of six Jets power plays, and doing so during crucial points of the game, the Red Wings again showed how effective their penalty kill can be.

“Our (penalty) kill has done a real good job,” Blashill said. “When teams get time to set up in the zone, they generally get some (offensive) chances. But we’ve done a pretty good job on the forecheck, and our killers did a real good overall (Tuesday).

“Our kill, actually, has leaked out of the top 10, but it’s actually been real good.”

Blashill didn’t want to see his penalty-killing unit on the ice so much against the Jets. But, in the end, it was the Red Wings’ who had the edge in special teams.
