Video- Why Recent Ryan Getzlaf Goal Should Have Been Waived Off

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kerry Fraser of TSN,

...Ryan Getzlaf's goal should have been disallowed once Tim Jackman initiated contact with Jets goalkeeper Michael Hutchinson inside his crease area. Even though Jackman's skates were outside the goal crease, his right elbow intruded significantly inside the blue paint and made solid contact with Hutchinson's head...

Most fans will probably agree that video review is badly needed to make accurate decisions on this very difficult call. For three seasons now I have lobbied that a monitor be placed in the penalty box for the referees to implement video review in an effort to make the correct decision. Through the use of video, the on-ice officials would then have the same advantage as the rest of the hockey world to review a potentially controversial goal.

More Cliches

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Kate from Pa.-made in Detroit

Guys have to go to the net.

Keep it simple.

We didn't have good jump tonight.

We never play for 60 minutes.

We gotta get pucks in deep behind their D.

We didn't pay the price.

One shift at a time.

We didn't bring our "A" game.

Imma' wondering if the Wings can even get up for the BJ's?

Of late-afternoon Red Wings-related note ahead of tonight's game between the Red Wings and Blue Jackets (7:30 PM on FSD/FS Ohio/97.1 FM), and pursuant to the morning skate news cycle:

The Red Wings will welcome Justin Abdelkader and Danny DeKeyser back into their lineup this evening, and Tomas Tatar's going to play after battling some sort of illness this past weekend, Johan Franzen's out with a non-mump illness.

The Mumps Outbreak In The NHL May Be On The Decline

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Reuters via TownHall.com,

The mumps outbreak that has spread through the National Hockey League over the past month and recently claimed the game's best player has likely reached its peak, experts said on Tuesday.

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby sat out his team's Monday game after becoming the 13th NHL player since early November to come down with the highly contagious disease that is usually found in children.

"The main thing now is that everybody is aware of it and from what I understand most teams have given their players booster shots," Dr. Judith Aberg, chief of the infectious diseases division at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, told Reuters.

"The vaccines take two-to-four weeks to have their maximum effect so they're just starting to kick in. ... It (the outbreak) should be starting to run its course."

Blood Clots A Scary Issue For Kimmo Timonen And Other NHL Players

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sarah Kwak of Sports Illustrated,

​Still, his symptoms didn’t cause him much concern. Even when his friend diagnosed the blood clot in his calf, Timonen says he needed some persuading to undergo a chest scan. “I’m so glad he talked me into it,” he says.

 

The scan revealed clots in both of Timonen’s lungs. They had most likely broken off the one in his calf, traveled up through his blood stream and pumped through his heart before becoming lodged in the smaller vessels of the lungs. Such clots are known as pulmonary emboli. They prevent blood from circulating through the lungs, and in some circumstances, they can lead to death....

It’s a scary situation that has affected NHLers such Jed Ortmeyer (in 2006), Panthers winger Tomas Fleischmann (in 2011) and recently sidelined Penguins winger Pascal Dupuis in January and then again last month. Just this week, 38-year-old Penguins goalie Tomas Vokoun announced his retirement after having missed much of the 2013-14 season with blood clots that nearly killed him. They were Vokoun's second brush with the affliction. He was diagnosed with one in his pelvis in 2006.

Brendan Smith On Justin Abdelkader, Danny DeKeyser And the Seven-Second Rule

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

from Bill Roose of DetroitRedWings.com,

“Abby is a different threat,” defenseman Brendan Smith said. “He can be a strong guy, power forward, hit and get pucks and get them to Pavel. That’s what you’ve seen in the past. He’s actually meshed with the top scorers like Pavel and Z very well because of his role. You need guys to complement each other. Look at video games, who complements each other, you need to have a power forward with a goal-scorer, a playmaker with a goal-scorer. That’s what Abby does with those goes.”

Meanwhile, on the other end of the ice, DeKeyser’s smooth passing touch gives Detroit a seamless transition on break outs of their own zone.

“DK moves the puck very well on the back end,” Smith said. “Coach talks about that seven-second rule, where you want to get out of your own end in seven seconds. If you don’t you end up playing the shift in your end. He’s very good. That’s maybe his best aspect. His first pass is one of the best. For him to do that, it’s good to have him back."

Rick Jeanneret’s Road To Recovery

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Law of QMI AGENCY at the Toronto Sun,

When the cancer diagnosis came, Jeanneret was defiant. He wasn’t going to let this be how his career ended. It would be on his terms.

The first couple radiation treatments felt fine. Then the pain hit. And the pain medication followed, which Jeanneret was told was “20 times stronger than heroin.”

In all, there were 33 radiation treatments over seven weeks. He stopped eating solid foods Aug. 15 and just recently resumed. He lost 43 pounds.

“Even though they tell you what’s going to happen, it’s the unknown,” he says.

“I can tell you, there were some dark times. Anybody who’s been through it knows what I’m talking about. You’re sitting there wondering, ‘Is this working? Am I going through all this pain and everything only to be told at the end it didn’t work and you’re dying anyway?’ Whether you try to bar those thoughts from your mind, they’re there.”

Afternoon Line- Anze Kopitar

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“I’ve been through this in the past, everybody has. In the beginning, we were winning games and I wasn’t worried as much. Now we’re not winning as many games.

“I think everybody will tell you on the team that it’s really not about the personal production. As long as we’re winning games, it doesn’t really matter who gets it done. Yes, in order for us to win games, I realize that I’ve got to be the guy.”

-Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings.  More on Kopitar, who has 1 goal in his last 13 games, from Lisa Dillman of the LA Times.
