The Edmonton Oilers Drop A Big Home Game To The St. Louis Blues

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Journal,

The Edmonton Oilers are going to need a smaller measuring stick.

The one the St. Louis Blues used to beat them down Thursday night is a little more than they can handle right now.

The 4-1 home ice defeat, spoiling their chance to win two games in a row at home this season, was another wake-up call for Edmonton....

All the usual suspects were present in Edmonton’s latest loss: The PK gave up a goal, the offence was anemic, the giveaways were painful to watch, and once again, Edmonton’s best players were trying to pass the puck into the net.

So now they head back out for a five-game road trip with a 7-10-2 record, their game still full of holes, one long slump away from being buried in the playoff race by the American Thanksgiving.

Otherwise things are looking pretty good.

Video- You Make The Call San Jose/Florida

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Paul Gackle of the Mercury News,

“The puck’s in the blue paint, and I guess from now on, you have to say, Mr. Goalie, go ahead and freeze it, or else it will be disallowed,” Vlasic said. “The puck’s right there. You jam the puck. It hits his pad. But, of course, he can’t make the play because I put it in before he could freeze it.

“I don’t know what the rules are anymore.”

During a TV timeout, Vlasic could be seen talking emphatically with referee Tom Kowal at the Sharks blue line.

What explanation did the Sharks defenseman receive?

“You can’t push the puck into his pad and into the net,” Vlasic said. “So you have to let the goalie freeze it. From now on, anything in the blue paint should be disallowed.”

Less Ice Time For Brent Seabrook May Mean More Production

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,

Brent Seabrook had by far his least ice time of the season Wednesday night against the New York Rangers. Perhaps not coincidentally, he had one of his best games, with four shots on goal, two blocked shots, an assist, and a plus-2 rating.

“I want to play as much as I can [but] I want to help the team out any way I can,” Seabrook said. “Whatever the case may be, I thought I had a better game [Wednesday] night I had more jump, more pace to my game.”

Removed from power-play duty for the game, Seabrook played just 16 minutes, 26 seconds against the Rangers — more than five minutes less than his season average.

Michigan Amateur Hockey Association to shoot for world record hockey tournament

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

This is incredibly impressive. From Michigan Hockey's Michael Caples:

During the 2018 holiday season, there will be (hopefully) an incredible amount of hockey being played within the Great Lakes State.

Tournament provider OneHockey has partnered with the Michigan Amateur Hockey Association in a mission to break the Guinness Book of World Records mark for tournament participation numbers with their the Holiday Invite 2018.

The massive tournament will take place across the state of Michigan from Dec. 27-30.

An estimated 1,000-plus teams, 23,000-plus players and 75 sheets of ice participating would all set new records; the current highmarks came at a tournament in Calgary in 2007 that saw 664 teams, 10,992 players and 42 sheets of ice in total.

“It will be so exciting for these hockey teams to be part of a Guinness World Record,” said MAHA president George Atkinson. “What an accomplishment. This would be any player’s dream, and there’s no better place to do that then in Michigan.

“Michigan is right behind Minnesota hockey as far as the most hockey players. This is a dream of a tournament in size and magnitude for our state and association to be a part of.”
