All Amy Grant

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jay Levin of the Nashville Predators,

NP.com: What is it about Preds games that have hooked you on the sport?

Amy: It’s just fun. It’s a great night out for Vince and me. This past season we had a pair of tickets, so it made for a great date night. We’ve spent our last two Anniversaries at a Predators game; all of Vince’s guy friends are like, ‘Man that’s some kind of wife.’

Babcock Today

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Q. Has Draper been cleared to play by doctors and if so, will he play tonight?

        COACH BABCOCK: Yeah, he was cleared before last game. Don’t know if he’ll play tonight. It will be based on Samuelsson. Samuelsson didn’t take the morning skate, so we’ll see what happens there.

        Q. Second injury, we just saw Pavel out on the ice. Just your thoughts on him and how does he look today?

        COACH BABCOCK: Well, I guess he had his best overnight experience that he’s had. And he seemed to have a big turn around. So he was real optimistic here today. I don’t assume that affects today’s game whatsoever, but it could really affect the following game.

Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“I think they are letting a few things go that maybe were called during the regular season, but I like it this way.  This allows a lot more battles. You can see it out there. Guys are able to fight for the puck.

“As a player, a fan or a coach, all you ask is that it’s called equally both ways, and I think they’ve done a great job of that. It’s fun. It’s not back to what it was in the eighties or seventies, but it’s nice that you can go in and guys are fighting for the puck, or you’re in front of the net, and there are some battles. That’s the way it should be at this time of year.”

-Kirk Maltby of the Detroit Red Wings on the officiating during the SCF.  More on this topic from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail.

Stop The Whining

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rory Boylen of The Hockey News,

The fact the refs have let the teams play and decide the games themselves has been a breath of fresh air. Now, I’m all for getting rid of the obstruction that once ground this game to a halt, but it’s almost as if these two teams are so good and filled with so many great players they won’t take those dumb penalties, anyway. The way the refs have put their whistles away and not called the chincy little taps by the defender that simply let the attacking player know he’s there – without slowing anything down – has provided us with some great games unimpeded by man-advantages that shouldn’t be a main story in any battle for the glorious Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup.

But, amazingly, there are still complaints. They focus not just on the refereeing, but a range of topics from the instigator rule to conspiracy theories. This really sticks in my craw, because if all you can do is whine and complain while this great display of skill, grit, desire and hunger is going on in front of us, then, I’m sorry, ya just ain’t a hockey fan.
