Milbury Makes Jagr Mad

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Watchdog Blog at Newsday,

Spies in the TV and/or hockey worlds tell me that Jaromir Jagr was so mad about recent comments from NBC analyst Mike Milbury about him that he refused to sit for interviews with NBC producers sent out this week to gather interviews for Sunday’s Bruins-Rangers tilt.

NBC got several other prominent Blueshirts on tape, but not Jagr.

Hasek In Net

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Ah…the dynamic is shifting.  Uncle Mike has decided to betray his public claim of alternating Osgood and Hasek.

Khan(!)

“I’m still kind of alternating, I just went with Dom because I like the way he played the other night (vs. Vancouver),’’ Babcock said. “In my mindset before the game, I said to myself if he plays good he’s going again. ... In my mind right now, I’m thinking Ozzie in L.A., Ozzie the first game back after the break (Jan. 30 vs. Phoenix). In saying that, it’s always day-to-day.’‘

Can’t argue with that.  Hasek stole the game against Vancouver and there should be no reason not to start him with a day’s rest in between.

KK LiveChat Game of the Week

Blog: KK Hockey By Steve

With the new chat rooms opening up this week, I felt it would be cool if we had sort of a weekly “Hockey Gathering”.  Where there’s pretty much 1 important game going on at the time, the numerous and widespread KK readership could just talk intelligently (hopefully) about the game and the sport in general.  So I thought long and hard on a cool title, and came up with “The KK LiveChat Game of the Week”.  Please, feel free to suggest a better one.

Anyway, we’re going to start with tomorrow’s Bruins-Rangers game on NBC, and will continue with the All-Star Game next week. 

It doesn’t look as if there’ll be any pre-game tomorrow, so make sure to be in the KK Hockey Chat Room Sunday at 12:15 ET for some lively hockey discussion!

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.”
