Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

NEW YORK (June 1, 2007) – Grammy award-winning recording artist and Ottawa native Alanis Morissette will perform the U.S. and Canadian national anthems at Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final in Ottawa, Monday, June 4. NBC will telecast the game live in the U.S. starting at 8:00 p.m. ET, and CBC and RDS will provide coverage throughout Canada.
Morissette’s contribution to the soundtracks for Dogma, City of Angels and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe have earned her two Golden Globes nominations. She has also made acting appearances in Dogma, Sex and the City and Curb Your Enthusiasm, among others. Morissette is currently in the studio working on a new album.

New A2Y Feature: The Smyth Watch

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I’ve been inundated (sorry, Bubba…“flooded”) with emails asking me to keep everyone up to speed on the likelihood of a Smyth deal in Detroit.

Well, inundated might be too strong.  Actually, no one’s really asked about it.

But it’s my agenda and I plan on pushing it.  So here we go.

Looking To Watch The Wings Practice?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Well, the organ-I-zation doesn’t think you’re important enough to do so during the regular season in Detroit.  So they, you know, kinda lock the doors to the Joe.

But hey, TC in September isn’t exactly a bad place to be.

TRAVERSE CITY — Tickets for the Detroit Red Wings training camp will go on sale Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Centre ICE.

This will be the 10th year for the Wings in Traverse City. Players will report on Sept. 13 for physicals and a golf outing. On-ice activities begin Sept. 14 and run through Sept. 18.

No word on whether you can order those tickets online or what.  No word either on whether a certain insane netminder will be there to greet you should you decide to go.

NHL Getting The Message Out

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Citizen,

With the world increasingly turning to electronic methods to access news, entertainment and sports information, the National Hockey League has launched a full-out assault on the Internet.
“Our responsibility to our fan base is to make sure we are where they want, how they want, when they want,” says Keith Ritter, President of NHL Interactive CyberEnterprises.
“In the United States, hockey does not get as much coverage as it should. We are making sure we can speak directly to our fans.”
In addition to the league’s electronic efforts, broadcasters have been frantically working to offer more hockey games online as well as in high-definition as the home theatre HD boom continues.

Best Line Of The Day

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Kelley at Sporstnet describing the Sens chances of a comeback-

Besides, it’s not like they’re calling on Alexei Yashin to give them a win-one-for-Ottawa speech. This time their fate is truly in their own hands.

Relax Ottawa

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Loose Change at the Hockey News,

I think it’s safe to assume two things about the city of Ottawa: (1) it’s populated largely by lemmings and (2) Chicken Little has a prominent position in city council.
Have you ever heard so much negative talk and such a defeatist attitude coming from this town? Well, actually you have – many times to be exact – I mean it is Ottawa. The Senators have historically tripped more than Keith Richards and fallen more than a one-legged table.

The Cup Always Draws A Crowd

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Citizen,

At a recent media “event” in Anaheim, the Cup’s presence in the Marriott hotel’s ballroom acted like a magnet, pulling hockey writers, photographers and television analysts - often a disaffected, cynical lot after a long season - over to it, to look at, to admire, and, yes, even to touch.
“I was like every Canadian kid,” says Michael Bolt. “I wanted to be a hockey player. More than life itself, I wanted to be a hockey player.
“But maybe I didn’t listen to my coaches enough or I didn’t have enough talent,” he adds. “I played high school hockey and junior B, but the dream probably died a lot sooner than I thought.”

Ducks Would Have Pounded Sabres

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,

The Senators did a number on the soft Sabres and proved to be the better team because they were more physical. But if the first two games of the Stanley Cup finals were any indication, Buffalo wouldn’t have stood a chance against an Anaheim team that beats up its opponents en route to beating them.
Reaching the conference finals in consecutive years is impressive, but it has become increasingly clear the Sabres need at least one bruiser on defense, maybe two, and a couple of more bangers on their top three lines. Teams loaded with speed and skill can get through the regular season because talent will carry them through. It’s different in the playoffs, where checking is tighter and officials are less likely to make calls that could determine the outcome.

Walkom Repsonds To Complaints

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the National Post via Canada.com,

The morning after a postgame Ottawa dressing room that was rife with complaints about the dropping of the standard for hooking and holding in this series, Stephen Walkom, the NHL’s director of officiating, didn’t give an inch to the Senators’ complaints.
In fact, he filed them under G—for gamesmanship.
“I appreciate it, but I’m oblivious to it. That approach to influencing the game, it’s archaic,” the head ref said. “The coaches stand up for their team, and I stand up for my team. We don’t score goals or miss the net.”
