Kulfan: No Bert At Morning Skate

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Update: Bruce MacLeod, not surprisingly, has more specifics.

Neither Detroit forward Todd Bertuzzi (concussion) nor Calgary defenseman Robyn Regehr (knee) took part in the morning skate, Thursday. Neither will be in the lineup tonight for Game 1. Bertuzzi did skate on his own and will have more tests Friday. Coach Mike Babcock considers him a possibility for Sunday’s Game 2.

Ted Kulfan reports that Todd Bertuzzi was absent, or at least not on the ice, for the morning skate.  That hasn’t stopped the conspiracy theorists amongst you from wondering aloud if this is a ploy by the Wings, but I don’t think so.  Count him out for Game 1.  If the Wings surprise us and he plays, good on ‘em.

I Would Not Be Happy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Listening to NHL Live, a caller just mentioned he was watching the Stars/Canucks game in the Houston area via Time Warner cable.
At 2:00am last night, the game went off the air and an infomercial appeared.

Carriers of NHL hockey, step-up, be prepared for OT games, don’t let this happen again.

added 6:30pm, via Yahoo,

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP)—“We are obviously very disappointed to hear that some fans in a few select markets have reported that they did not see the end of this great game,” network spokeswoman Katie Bradshaw said.
Henrik Sedin scored 18:06 into the fourth overtime—at about 3:30 a.m. EDT Thursday—to give the Canucks a 5-4 Game 1 win over the Stars in the sixth-longest playoff game in NHL history.
“The game did run in its entirety on the Versus network feed,” Bradshaw said. “But based on the information we have received, we are currently working with our affiliates in the affected markets to find out what caused the problem and to make sure that this doesn’t happen again during the playoffs.”

Oh…Good

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

So…getting any work done?  Approximately 8 hours until the pain starts.  Now don’t get me wrong.  When I say it’s going to be painful, that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m predicting a loss tonite.  Nope.  It just means the playoffs themselves are painful. Every game, every minute, every shift. 

I’ll tell you, and this is just between us, I was feeling sorry for AlanaH last night, knowing she was dying with all 76 shots fired at Luongo.

Big 3 Must Lead

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Tampa Tribune,

Brad Richards, Vinny Lecavalier and Marty St. Louis are the trinity on which Tampa Bay has pinned its hopes as it embarks on another playoff journey today in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs against the New Jersey Devils.
And if Tampa’s Big Three aren’t leading the way, the Lightning’s chances of victory are severely diminished.

Testing The EDGE

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Saginaw News,

Ryan Burke did his share of work on the Rbk EDGE uniform.
Ryan Burke now knows how a guinea pig feels.
Only the Michigan State University freshman got paid a little better.
The 18-year-old Burke was given a new pair of skates and $300 for spending three days on a StairMaster stepper at Central Michigan University, helping a group of professors work with Reebok International to develop a new uniform for the National Hockey League.

Christie Drawing Attention

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Nationa Post,

Brinkley’s web diary appeared for the first time a few weeks back, and within a day it had generated 50,000 page views.
It does not feature any pictures of the 53-year-old mother of three in swimwear, though there is a series of Brinkley at a game in an Islanders sweater.
Brinkley, admits Milord, works with a ghost blogger at the league’s New York offices. When she has the urge to talk hockey, she talks to them, and they transcribe her thoughts for public consumption.
Since Brinkley went live, a buzz has shot through the world of the celebrity hockey fan.

Nabokov Remembers His Coach

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Mercury News,

There were so many things happening at once Wednesday night for the Sharks, Evgeni Nabokov did not really have time to think. He could react. But not think.
This was probably a good thing for him and the Sharks, considering where their thoughts might have wandered. Earlier in the day, they learned that their 73-year-old goalies coach, Warren Strelow, had died following complications from a stroke. Nabokov had taken it as hard as anyone.

Pretend You Follow The Rangers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Magazine,

It’s NHL playoff time, and your New York Rangers start their postseason tonight in Atlanta. This is good news for the Rangers themselves and troubling news for the rest of New York, which is suddenly obligated to actually pay attention to hockey. How to follow a team you haven’t watched in a while (or since 1994 or never) and don’t much care about? Simple: Just pretend the Rangers play for other New York teams, the ones you’ve heard of.
