Yzerman Has Squeezed Enough From Detroit

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler and the Hockey Journal,

*Detroit captain STEVE YZERMAN squeezed an extra year – as well as millions – out of the Red Wings. And more power to him. But Detroit’s near-eternal captain must realize that enough IS enough. Yzerman should graciously call it a career while the calling still is good. Nor would it hurt the Wings if he persuaded teammate Chris Chelios to exit Stage Right along with him. After all, there IS such a thing as wearing out one’s welcome.

We Have All Been There

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

We all know what this guy is going through. Over the years, I have probably missed 20 social events due to a playoff game... from the Niagara Gazette,

High school students debate the importance of prom Our Space HE SAID: I’m having a conflict of interest at the moment. The Stanley Cup Finals end in June, so what happens if there is a game on the night of prom? Surely the NHL will not take into consideration the date of Niagara Falls High School’s prom celebration when making its schedule.... SHE SAID: Every girl feels like Cinderella on her prom night. From perfect hair and makeup to perfect attire, girls have an enchanted evening to look forward to.

Explain The Game To Me

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Lebanon Daily News,

I have just shelled out $200 for three hockey tickets. This is because: (a) No. 1 son, the hockey fanatic, is visiting for a few days. (b) It’s an NHL playoff game. (c) I am nuts. Specifically the pricey ducats (nosebleed section) are for Saturday afternoon’s face off between the New Jersey Devils and Carolina Hurricanes. It is our home game two in round two of the playoffs, or more precisely the fourth game of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The first two games are someplace in Carolina, where of course they have no business playing hockey, nor anywhere else south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Shark Hug From Fans

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Eliot of Sports Illustrated,

The San Jose Sharks' story this season is compelling on so many levels that it's tough to know where to begin. With the top four seeds falling in the first round in the Western Conference, the Sharks have home ice in this round against the Edmonton Oilers and the conference final should they advance. That is no small advantage. The patrons of the Shark tank engage in game proceedings in as loud a fashion as any in the entire league. Maybe that is the starting point in all of this. The Sharks are this community's team. When they joined the league in the fall of 1991, some wondered about the viability of a franchise set in Northern California. But even through the lean early years, the fans embraced the Sharks.

Thornton Dominates

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,

We knew going into the Sharks-Oilers series that Joe Thornton would be up against Chris Pronger in almost every opportunity. Certainly the Oilers want to get Pronger out against Thornton and although the record will show that Thornton had no points in Game One, he had a marvellous game. He was making great passes and playing strong along the boards to get away from Pronger.

Pounded

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

Bang. Bang. They knocked them down. Bang. Bang. They hit the ground. Bang. Bang. They made an awful sound. Bang. Bang. They really got rocked around. Out-hustled. And, especially, out-muscled. If it looked like the Edmonton Oilers had the old rope-a-dope going against the Detroit Red Wings in the first round, this one was just being on the ropes and, for most of the second period, out on their feet.

Sharks Handle Pronger

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the San Francisco Chronicle,

Sure, it's disappointing when the local club you're kind of rooting for because it's a local club turns out to be a bunch of bullies. But the Sharks, they hurt people. Legally, but still ... The Oilers have this defenseman named Chris Pronger who is as big as a Zamboni (6-foot-6 and 230 pounds) and fast as a Maserati and has a longstanding rep around San Jose for mistreating Sharks. He is quite unpopular here. Experts said Pronger was the key to the Oilers' hopes. But the Sharks neutralized him, pounded him, stood up to him and his teammates.
