Morning Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Henrik Zetterberg clearly has a secondary role right now. It’s an interesting dynamic to follow this season—a contract year for Z. It’s not that Zetterberg doesn’t get plenty of opportunity or that he’s not centering a scoring line. But Zetterberg is the No. 2 center behind Datsyuk. Would you rather have Hossa and Homer as your wings every night or a mix of Hudler, Samuelsson, Filppula or Cleary?

“I’m a parent full-time now, I have to live my life too, because if I keep on living just for that, I’m going to go crazy. . . . You have to live your life. My life right now is not playing hockey.”

-Martin Brodeur, more from Marty at the NY Post.

It’s Milk…And It’s Sour, Warm and Full of That Chunky White Stuff

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

When I was a young Midwestern boy hurtling through my late, late teens and early twenties my friends and I came up with a term for a bad hangover.  Just one word, one syllable, less than a second to say but so descriptive.

Milk.

Chalky, sour, almost fetid.  Sluggish.  Past the due date.  Unsuitable for consumption and certainly not safe for children.

Morrow Facing Suspension

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Stars Blog,

It’s one step forward and two steps back for the Stars, who ended their three-game California road trip with a 3-2 shootout loss to the Los Angeles Kings and might lose their captain for the next game.

Sticking up for teammate Mike Ribeiro, who was knocked into the boards by Kings forward Dustin Brown, Morrow started a fight with Brown and received an instigator penalty in the final five minutes of a game….

Ribeiro was in a shooting position when Brown hit him, and Ribeiro flew into the boards and hit his head. He received stitches over his left eye, but did return to the game and made an incredible goal to help extend the shootout.

read on and watch a video of the Brown hit below…

added 10:53am, via Bob McKenzie of TSN,

The NHL has rescinded both the automatic one-game suspension to Brenden Morrow and the $10,000 fine to Dallas Stars head coach Dave Tippett.

Morrow received an instigator penalty in the final five minutes of the game when he fought Kings forward Dustin Brown after Brown hit Stars forward Mike Ribeiro into the boards.

Penguins stun Red Wings in overtime, 7-6

Blog: The Confluence By Tony

You folks have no idea how many variations of negativity I was planning on putting in the title of this post.

The Red Wings’ stifling forecheck, their transition game, expertly having bodies in front of the net, having the Penguins on their heels, it looked lousy for the Pens for a lot of this game.

But Jordan Staal led a furious Penguins’ comeback with his 2nd career hat trick and caused the turnover that resulted in the game-winning goal in overtime by Ruslan Fedotenko, giving the Penguins an improbable 7-6 win over the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Ugly Detroit Loss

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Empty Netters,

What in the world happened to Detroit’s vaunted defense. It totally collapsed in the third period?

Hmmm, I have the same question & many more.  I was at the game and the 3rd period was not good, unless you are a Pens fan.  More on the game tonight.

added 11/12/08, Video highlights of the game below…

Report- More Surgery For Forsberg

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

From the never-ending-Peter-Forsberg-medical-news-department: I heard from a Swedish source that our beloved Foppa had another foot surgery a few days ago. I’ll get more definitive word on this soon hopefully, but that’s what I’m hearing.

more plus a look at the back issue of Joe Sakic…

Evening Line

“I kind of figured it was coming.  A couple times he yelled at me for not moving my feet. I just hope he holds everyone accountable no matter what number they’re wearing on the back.

“It’s all for the team now. I was upbeat and positive cheering guys on.

Winning’s fun, even when you’re sitting.”

-Scott Hartnell of the Flyers after being benched in the 3rd period today, a victory over the New York Islanders.  More from Chuck Gormley of the Courier-Post including the latest lower-body injury to Daniel Briere.

2009 HHOF Class

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Johnston of the CP via the Globe and Mail,

There will probably be a crowded class when the Hall opens its doors again next November.

Steve Yzerman is a lock to enter in his first year of eligibility and it’s hard to imagine Brett Hull, Brian Leetch and Luc Robitaille not joining him. All four of those players were legitimate stars in their prime and each has won a Stanley Cup along with one of the league’s major personal awards….

Adam Oates and Doug Gilmour are the highest eligible players on the NHL’s all-time point list that have been passed over. Oates finished his career with 1,420 points — good for 15th overall — and Gilmour is a spot behind him with 1,414 points.

Pavel Bure, Eric Lindros, Steve Larmer, Mike Vernon and Dino Ciccarelli are among a long list of players who continue to warrant some consideration.

The AHL: A Bargain for Great Hockey

Blog: Goal Line Report By Patrick Hoffman

For a person that has seen many, many National Hockey League games, it will probably come as a surprise to some of you that I had never been to an American Hockey League (AHL) game before, especially since I live within 150 minutes of two American Hockey League franchises: the Hartford Wolf Pack (New York Rangers farm team) and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (New York Islanders farm team).

As I mentioned this past weekend, that all changed on Saturday night when I went to the XL Center (formerly the Hartford Civic Center) to take in a Wolf Pack vs. Springfield Falcons (Edmonton Oilers farm team) game. However, as you also all know, I wasn’t able to enjoy the game from a fan’s perspective.

Instead, I got to enjoy it as a credentialed member of the media, covering the game for the Wolf Pack web site and boy was the game ever good. This game had it all: speed, great puck movement, solid goaltending, a fight, and hard hitting. All in all, it was just as good as an NHL game.
