Kipper Comes Through

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

Eleven minutes to go in a 6-1 game and the crowd was on its feet.

Not because of Daymond Langkow’s hat-trick minutes earlier or because the Flames turned in the type of beat-down fans have expected to see more of all year.

This time, it was for Miikka Kiprusoff.

Yep—the guy relegated to backup status if only in the sports pages as the collective hearts of the city were aflutter over the signing of Curtis Joseph this week.

Wings Talking Long Term Contract With Cleary

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. John’s Telegram,

Now that he’s found his groove in Hockeytown, U.S.A., Cleary doesn’t see any reason to leave. He’s set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season and doesn’t feel the need to test the open market.

“I certainly hope I don’t leave,” said Cleary, who is pocketing US$662,500 this season and is likely due for a healthy raise. “We’re talking now about contract extensions, so hopefully something can get done. We’re talking long term.

“I’d like to play here as long as I can.”

Nashville Sees An Attendance Increase

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Tennessean,

With more than half the Predators’ 2007-08 home games in the books, the team’s paid attendance average is below the level of two crucial goals set during the offseason.

But Ed Lang, the Predators’ president of business operations, is forecasting an attendance surge in the next three months that should ensure the franchise qualifies for the NHL’s full revenue-sharing plan.

Qualifying for the full revenue-sharing plan means the Predators would receive an estimated $12 million to 13 million from the league, money that could be used to re-sign players currently on the team and to court free agents.

Those Darn Sticks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Journal,

Time and again, Jarret Stoll has had a stick snap in his hands. He’s switched manufacturers, tried different flexes, talked to the company representatives.

Now he might have reached his own breaking point. The shaft of another stick snapped in two on Thursday when Stoll took his turn during the marathon shootout session against the Washington Capitals. He was the seventh of 12 shooters the Edmonton Oilers deployed against goaltender Olaf Kolzig.

“It’s frustrating,” he said the morning after the Oilers had gained a point but lost 5-4 in the shootout. “Especially since I’ve switched and things were feeling good. ... Then all of a sudden it’s in your hand. In two pieces. It sucks. But we have to figure it out.

You know things are going right when Eric Staal scored his 3rd goal of the game against the Oilers, watch his stick snap on the goal…

Playing Together

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob Duff of the Windsor Star,

For more than a decade, they’ve filled a valuable role as defensively-dominant forwards who not only shut down the opposition, but drive them to distraction with their agitating antics.

After Draper and Maltby, the National Hockey League’s longest-running forward tandem is the New Jersey checking pair of John Madden and Jay Pandolfo.

They’ve been an item since 1999.

Draper and Maltby were first united three years earlier, embarking upon a relationship that is as symbiotic as it is long-standing.

“A brother from another mother,” is how Draper describes Maltby, his teammate for a dozen years and linemate for the vast majority of that time.
