Babcock- “We’re Going To Be More Than Fine”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Detroit Free Press via the Mercury News,

Babcock spoke at the team's hotel, where he and a handful of players gathered to talk to the media. "I know you don't like to hear it," he said, "but I think we're going to be more than fine." Babcock appeared in a fine mood, and none of the players present seemed concerned that the Wings were trailing in the series. Lidstrom echoed what other teammates said when he pointed out that, had the team only played from the start Tuesday the way they played from the third period on , this might be a different series.

Oilers Have The Best Player In The Series

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Oilers,

“It’s nice to have the best player in a series,” noted head coach Craig MacTavish. “It’s something that couldn’t be said about the Edmonton Oilers in the past few seasons.” The Red Wings will certainly come with their best game yet on Thursday as they try to avoid heading home with a two-game deficit but the Oilers will be prepared. “Their road record speaks for itself. The experience they have in the room, they can read the landscape and importance of getting the series back 2-2,” said MacTavish. “I don’t know that we played our best game last night but I think we’re going to have to be a little better than that. The expectation is we have improvement to make.”

Foiled Again

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Fox Sports,

Last year's NHL lockout robbed me of number three on my list. If there's such a thing as a nuclear winter, last year's April-June made for a personal nuclear spring. Without Barry Melrose's analysis, Brian Engblom's mullet, and Bill Clement's wisdom — I was truly a lost man during those three months. Add on the lack of aluminum foil replica trophies, and it made for a forgettable time in my life. In place of those endless spring nights of magic on ice was emptiness. That's it. Just massive, unquestioned, foil-less, emptiness. Sure, I missed the hockey. More so, though, I missed the aluminum foil. But the aluminum foil replica Stanley Cup trophy is back in 2006. And it's back with a vengeance.

Shark Attack

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Mercury News via the Tennessean,

Sharks fans have been waiting a long time to issue playoff victory cheers. The building — where the Sharks' overall playoff record coming into the game was 19-21 — has long had a reputation as one of the loudest in the league. Once upon a time, it was just loud — indiscriminately loud. Now it's both loud and knowledgeable and you could sense that Sharks fans were determined to prove they were superior to the fans in Nashville, a city that seemed at risk of losing its hockey team if contraction had been part of the lockout disaster. "To see our fans come back the way they did," General Manager Doug Wilson said, before the series began, "... we've got to deliver for them."

Turco Must Step Up

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

After giving up a whopping five goals to Colorado in each of his first two games of this postseason, Turco is 7-12, and seemingly headed toward another springtime flameout. It's time for Turco to steal one. If he doesn't do it Wednesday, he probably doesn't have to worry about getting the quick ticket out of town like Cechmanek and Lalime did. His job's probably safe -- for now, anyway. But his reputation, and the Stars' season, may be sealed.

Loose Change answers emails... from the Hockey News,

I’m worried. Can a damaged shoulder really affect my game? - Jaromir J, New York You probably won’t have the strength to start with, but take it slow and you will regain your form. Try moving down to a small wood instead of a long iron. I’ve had the same nightmare about being buried alive by an Avalanche, twice. What can I do about this? - Marty T, Dallas Try closing your legs. Or stop sleeping at work.

Hitchcock Sorry For Outburst

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Philadelphia Daily News,

"I guess I need to apologize," Hitchcock said yesterday after the Flyers had a short skatearound to get ready for tonight's Game 3 at the Wachovia Center. "I know better than that. I kind of lost discipline the way our team did in the game." Reacting to Ruff's saying the Flyers acted like "idiots," Hitchcock ended his postgame news conference by saying Ruff could "[bleep] off." "To use a word like that on television or on radio or in print is not who I am," Hitchcock said. "That's not what I'm about, so saying it was the wrong thing.
Watch the outburst from Hitchcock... Is Hitchock's job on the line? from Sportsnet,
Will Ken Hitchcock, the hard-nosed head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers, be the next to get the axe? You can't help but wonder, considering the way the Flyers are playing in the playoffs.
