Sharks Plan To Win The Game On The Ice

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via the Akron Beacon Journal,

After refusing to comment following the Sharks’ fisticuff-filled 5-2 loss to the Predators on Friday night, Wilson reacted incredulously Saturday to Trotz’s repeated attempts to blame the series’ physical tone and vindictive episodes on the Sharks.
“The rhetoric coming (from Trotz) is that we went there to start a street brawl, which is comical,” Wilson said after the Sharks’ 4 a.m. return from splitting the first two games in Nashville. The best-of-seven Western Conference series resumes Monday.
“Our responses aren’t about beating anybody up or any of that baloney. We took home ice from them. The pressure is on them now. We’re still in the driver’s seat. ... We’ll win the game on the ice.”

Chippy Early

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Most every series has had its share of big hits, scrums and gritty play.  Hope hockey fans are enjoying the play so far, the best is yet to come.

Expect a better game tonight from the Islanders and the Tampa Bay/New Jersey game should be a hard fought batttle.

The Flames will come out flying tomorrow, trying to erase Game 1 memories quickly.
No need to even discuss Sharks/Preds, we know the Shark Tank will be rocking.  And look for the Wild to regroup and come on strong at home.

Khan(!) Feeling The Heat

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Nothing is more conducive to organizational success than a little internal competition.  And you, my friends, are the benefactors.  Obviously feeling that his Deep Digger Captain status is in jeopardy, Khan(!) is keeping pace with our man Bruce MacLeod this afternoon regarding Wing cheerleader Todd Stillwuzzi.

Bertuzzi out for Game 2
The Wings announced that Todd Bertuzzi will not play in Game 2 vs. Calgary Sunday and is day-to-day. After practicing Saturday, Bertuzzi (concussion, strained neck) said he is optimistic he’ll be ready for Game 3 in Calgary on Tuesday.

“I feel a lot better, whether a couple of days of practice would put me in a better position or not, we’ll have to decide after,’’ Bertuzzi said, before learning that he would not play. “It’s not ultimately my decision. I tell them how I feel and they base their decision on that.’’

And Then I Threw Up

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

We make a lot of references to vomit and other bodily functions here. It's kind of an A2Y staple. I've always enjoyed the word "vomit" as either a noun or a very strong verb. And, honestly, watching someone vomit, particularly if they're a friend of mine and it's alcohol-induced, is a type of entertainment you just can't find anywhere else. I say that because I just received news that nearly made me expel recently-eaten solid foods from my body at an alarming rate of speed. I have to be on a plane tomorrow at 1530. I guess I don't have to tell you what that particular scheduling quirk means. If I was prone to dropping the f-bomb here, I would certainly make use of that conversational device now.

Welcome Don Cherry

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Loose Change at the Hockey News,

Listen up America, we need to talk.
With all the Homeland threats you’ve been under lately, the last thing I want to do is get you unnecessarily alarmed. but, in this case, I think it’s well worth it.
You see, you’re about to be invaded. Don’t worry, the intruder isn’t your typical army (although he is just as noisy and often fires randomly into a crowd) but a single, solitary individual. This army of one goes by the simple name of Don Cherry, sometimes referred to as The Coach; Grapes; or occasionally, Old Yeller.

Bertuzzi A Black Ace?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Updated 1407 ESTMacLeod reports that Todd Stillwuzzi (thanks O-Joe) is out for Game 2, despite practicing for the second straight day.

Iwo’s alliterative analysis: Had the Wings not done what they did the other day, denying the diggers the Detroit death watch they desperately desired, this decision would most definitely have been different.

Bruce MacLeod reports today that Bertuzzi practiced today, but not on a line that would dress tomorrow.

Todd Bertuzzi is on the ice for Saturday’s full practice. He’s skating with Josh Langfeld and Tomas Kopecky. Mikael Samuelsson and Kyle Calder are skating on Robert Lang’s line. Although Bertuzzi might play in Sunday’s Game 2, the Red Wings are preparing for him not to dress.

Do the Wings even call their reserves “Black Aces” anymore? Not sure.  I’ll drink on it and get back to you.

Hartnell Avoids Suspension Again

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN,

Nashville Predators’ forward Scott Hartnell will not receive an automatic one game suspension for incurring his second game misconduct of the playoffs.
The NHL reviewed Friday night’s altercation that led to Hartnell’s game misconduct. The league determined that Hartnell was not involved in a secondary fight, he was involved in the initial altercation, and that the tie-down on his sweater was in fact secure.

Lightning Goalie Situation

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Petersburg Times,

Holmqvist was supposed to be an upgrade as a backup goalie, one of those guys who goes in when the schedule gets heavy, one of those guys who pleases everyone if he can win a dozen games or so along the journey. Frankly, he was supposed to be Bruce Gradkowski.
Instead, Holmqvist was better than expected.
Instead, Marc Denis was worse.
Even now, especially now, you cannot get away from it. Much of the reason the Lightning is in Holmqvist’s hands is because of Holmqvist, who was more athletic, more resilient, tougher mentally than his team had any reason to believe. And much of the reason is that Denis wasn’t.
