Harding Getting the Job Done

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From John Shipley at the Pioneer Press,

The Wild take a three-game winning streak into Wednesday night’s game against divisional rival Calgary at the Xcel Energy Center, and you can bet Harding will be in the nets. He was the winning goalie in all of those victories, with a 1.54 goals-against average and .959 save percentage.

On the flip side, Backstrom was 2-2 in his previous five starts, with a 3.40 GAA and .868 save percentage. Harding relieved him Thursday in Detroit, after Backstrom gave up leads of 3-1 and 4-2 in what was a 6-5 shootout victory for Minnesota.

After Harding backstopped a 4-1 victory over Phoenix on Sunday, coach Jacques Lemaire was asked who his No. 1 goalie is.

“The one that stops the puck is ahead of the other one,” he said. “The one that stops more pucks is the best one. So you’ve got to figure that one out.”

Sabres Plan To Sign Campbell

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier admitted today that he’s disappointed with defenseman Brian Campbell’s decision to suspend negotiations on a new contract with the team….

“[A trade is] not the intention and that’s not the focal point,” Regier said. “The focal point is to try to sign him. You never say never about anything but the the thing we’d like to do and hope to do is to sign him.”

No Comment From Fletcher

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP,

Cliff Fletcher was busy returning phone calls Tuesday.

Friends, family and media filled up his voice mail after a report Monday night said the Toronto Maple Leafs had contacted him about taking over the team as an interim GM for the remainder of the season.

“I have no comment whatsoever on it,” Fletcher told The Canadian Press from his home in Scottsdale, Ariz. “They have a management team in place. It would be inappropriate for me to say anything.

“Although I can tell you that (wife) Linda and I tomorrow morning are on our way to Mexico for a week. We’re on the plane to Cancun for sure.”

All John Shannon

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross at ESPN,

Shannon is the NHL’s television repair man. His official title is senior vice president of broadcasting. His job, among other things, is to deal with all of the NHL’s broadcast partners and maximize how the product is presented by local and national outlets.

Q: How happy are you in the way NHL games are being broadcasted by the 30 local networks?

A: I think we are better than we were two years ago. I think camera position and awareness of camera positions is an important thing. I think we are making inroads there and helping them with their commentators to make them more complete broadcasters.
