Interview with Dave Tippett

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

An interview today with Dallas Stars coach Dave Tippett.

        Q.  Talk about tonight, going into play and how do you guide your team not to play too desperate because your backs are against the wall?

        COACH DAVE TIPPETT:  We have to come in, and our focus now is to come play the best game of the series.  We thought our team struggled with energy the first game.  The second game we thought we did stuff that’s more indicative of how we did in the playoffs so far.

Bad Day for the Judge

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

Team USA’s loss to Finland yesterday has produced a hailstorm of criticism for the officials based on a goal scored by Finland that led to their late rally.  For anyone who hasn’t seen the controversial non-goal—which was reviewed by the video judge and still declared a goal—it can be seen on the video below. 

Both teams agree it was a major error, as can be seen in the post-game reaction on this TSN clip.

Update 10:23am May 13: From The Chronicle Herald,

The video goal judge was dismissed by the International Ice Hockey Federation after the botched call. The IIHF acknowledged the goal “should not have counted” on its website and stated the goal judge will “not be working for the rest of the tournament.”

“It’s a mistake,” Esche said. “The guy made a mistake and you have to live with it.”

U.S. head coach John Tortorella wasn’t as forgiving on Monday.

“Did they sack him? They should,” Tortorella said. “I don’t know how they handled it but as far as dismissing him, yes I support it.

Stars, Flyers Need A Win

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Spector at Fox Sports,

It was not the start to the conference finals that the Philadelphia Flyers and Dallas Stars envisioned, down 2-0 in their respective series against the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings.

Both clubs must now find ways to rebound quickly in their next games or face the prospect of facing a deficit in the series too steep to overcome.

Strong Words From Terrible Ted

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Giving testimony at the Richard Gnida trial in Detroit today, Ted Lindsay pulled no punches.

“He was the greatest machine in the world,” Lindsay told the jury of five men and three women. Today, “I see this vegetable and to me it just kind of makes me sick (compared) to what was the greatest hockey player in the world.”

Lindsay said he understood the chauffer had been impaired at the time of the crash. “People like that, they should be shot,” he said.

Brett Hull Chatter

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Joe O’Connor at the National Post, some chat with Brett Hull, co-GM of the Dallas Stars.  A sampling:

National Post: You were a goal scorer and a teammate of Dominik Hasek in Detroit. And you know Chris Osgood, whose been around a long time. So, do you have any tips for Dallas’ shooters in the Western final?
Brett Hull: The way goalies play goal now, they are all the same. There are only certain places you can shoot today on an NHL goalie and score. [...]

NP: What is your guilty pleasure?
BH: Can I say tequila?

NP: Finish this sentence for me: Old scorers never die they just…
BH: Learn to score off the ice.

Something Special In Pittsburgh

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun at Sportsnet,

This is a magical time for the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise.

On the ice, the Penguins are playing some of the most elegant hockey in the league, led by the twin superstar attack of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Is it even fair that the same franchise can ice a team with Crosby and Malkin a decade later after having Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr on the same team?

Off the ice, the business side has never been on more solid ground.

What’s With All The Red

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael E. Young of the Dallas Morning News,

To some, Detroit fans are known as the “Red Army.” Others favor the slightly disparaging “U-Haul Army,” for the Detroit diaspora that carried Michiganders east, west and south when troubled times hit the region’s auto manufacturers.

Maybe that scattering is the reason Red Wings fans remain so true to the home team. Only a few groups – like the rabid fans of the New York Yankees and Green Bay Packers – can match this unwavering dedication. Packers fans travel in such numbers that they can make a game at Texas Stadium feel like a trip to the frozen tundra.

Patrick Roy? Just Kidding

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Bernie Lincicome at the Rocky Mountain News,

Wait. I was only kidding when I suggested Patrick Roy for the coach of the Avalanche. So, I take no credit or blame if Roy gets to stand under his own jersey hanging up there in the Pepsi Center rafters, along with those two Stanley Cup banners he helped win.

My suggestion was in keeping with the Avs’ fondness for leafing backward through their old scrapbooks. Oh, look. There’s Ray Bourque.

Why not him? Or how about Adam Deadmarsh, great name. Chris Drury, old Captain Clutch, still playing, could be a player-coach.

No, it is Roy, the only name that gets the blood up, causes conversation.

Yashin Considering Return to the NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun,

It’s believed the Wild and Canadiens have held talks with Yashin’s agents.

The 35-year-old Yashin, a former No. 1 pick of the Senators, had 43 points in 56 games this season with Yaroslavl. He returned to his homeland after receiving a $17.6-million US buyout from the Islanders last summer.

“Some teams were asking me about (Yashin) at the under-18 championships in (Kazan, Russia last month),” said agent Todd Diamond. “We had a few teams that were inquiring. He had a great year over there. He was the MVP of the league and he was the leading scorer in the playoffs.”
