The NHL Is Dark Tonight And So Am I

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Tonight I am taking advantage of the break to re-charge and relax a bit.

Back at it in the morning but if something big happens tonight I will interrupt my date with a bottle of Bushmills and post.

Other than that, nada.

Sergei Bobrovsky On His Season

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

frpm Brian Hedger of BlueJackets.com,

Monday night, however, the Jackets' top goalie let his feelings be known during a candid postgame media scrum, following another disappointing first-round exit for Columbus in a Game 6 loss to the Washington Capitals at Nationwide Arena.

"I can't control things around me," said Bobrovsky, who allowed five goals on 27 shots in Game 6, including back-to-back goals that broke the game open for the Capitals in the third period. "The only thing I can control, myself, you know? And after this season, I completely disagree if anybody will say that I need a psychologist, you know?"

It was a jarring statement to the media huddled around him, especially coming from "Bob," the guy who usually just refers to his system and the process he uses to make some of the most incredible saves you'll ever see.

Who said anything about a psychologist?

Answer: nobody, this year....

http://"I think that, yeah, as I say, I think I play strong overall, whole season, so I was consistent," he replied. "I was good in the playoffs. Definitely, I could be better, but we still lose, you know? But I did what I could. I work hard. I battle hard. And I thought I gave a chance [for] my team to win, every night actually."

Dominic Turgeon Is On The Road To A Full Recovery

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings' website,

Dominic Turgeon considers himself very lucky.

When the Grand Rapids Griffins were in Texas on April 11 to play the Stars, Turgeon mentioned to athletic trainer John Bernal that his right arm had been swollen for a couple of days, something Turgeon initially thought was a bruise.

Bernal took Turgeon to the hospital to see what was going on and they discovered something much more serious than a bruise - thoracic outlet syndrome.

"I actually went to the hospital and I figured I was going back for my pre-game nap and they say you need surgery right away," Turgeon told reporters in Grand Rapids Tuesday while his team practiced. "So I'm getting hooked up to machines and then I had surgery probably an hour after that and was there."

Below, watch Turgeon discuss the injury.

Videos- The Last Time Toronto And Boston Played A Game 7

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com,

For Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri, it admittedly was one of the worst moments of his NHL career.

For Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron, it was among the best of his.

When the Maple Leafs visit the Bruins in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference First Round on Thursday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVAS), it will be the teams' first playoff game against each other since Boston eliminated Toronto in seven games in the first round in 2013.

But the Bruins did more than win the series. They made history and broke the Maple Leafs' hearts. Down by three goals 5:29 into the third period of Game 7, Boston rallied for a 5-4 overtime win, becoming the first NHL team to win Game 7 after trailing by three in the third.

"Lesson learned," Kadri said. "You take what happened and understand how to better handle that situation if it comes up again.

"We have young guys on this team who were still in school back then. This is a different team."

Videos from that night are below...

All Tom Dundon

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Dundon joined Greg Wyshynski and Emily Kaplan on the latest episode of ESPN on Ice for a wide-ranging interview. Here are a few highlights.

On being a vocal owner:

"I've heard that new owners don't say much initially -- and not sure that's going to work for me."

On rumors that the Hurricanes have been lowballing GM and coaching candidates:

"If I thought that the money and the talent are one-to-one correlated, then I would spend the money. But I believe we can fit really talented people within our budget, and me looking at other people's determination of the market, in paying people -- it's not something I would ever do.

"If I can't find the person who is undervalued and give them the chance at a price I think is fair, and give them a chance to build their market value and build the team, then I might move to a different plan. But I do think it would be surprising if there were only 30 people in the world who could do these jobs. We're looking for the talent, not the résumé."

Must Watch TV - Nashville Predators Against The Winnipeg Jets

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

We’re just about to start the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, so it would be a mistake to look at this as the “real” Stanley Cup final or anything like that.

It does, however, shape up to be the one you won’t want to miss.

The Nashville Predators and Winnipeg Jets made a series of noteworthy statements together during the regular season that suggested, if they were to meet in the post-season, it might produce something unforgettable. Well, now the two teams will get that chance....

The Predators, Stanley Cup finalists last spring, have had their eye on the big prize since losing to Pittsburgh. They are fortified down the middle with Nick Bonino, Kyle Turris and the unretired Mike Fisher, and they posted the NHL’s best regular-season record.

The Jets posted the second-best record out of 31 teams, but came into this spring thinking of more modest dreams. Perhaps trying to win the first playoff series in franchise history. They did that and, suddenly, the dream is much, much bigger in Manitoba, as it should be in a league in which very good is good enough to win a Cup these days.
