The Calgary Flames Now Face The Anaheim Ducks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Mitchell of the Calgary Sun,

The thing about playoff hockey is the longer you play, the harder it gets.

Minutes after dispatching the Vancouver Canucks in six games thanks to a rousing come-from-behind 7-4 win at the Saddledome on Saturday, the Calgary Flames quickly turned their attention to the Anaheim Ducks.

And the Honda Center.

It’s been a house of horrors for the Flames, who haven’t won in Orange County in the regular-season since 2004.

They did pick up a win at The Pond in the playoffs back in the ’05-06 season, but lost that series in seven games.

“Thanks for reminding me,” quipped Flames winger Jiri Hudler, whose sensational two goal, two assist performance in the clincher helped book the date with the Ducks.

Can they change their fortunes in Southern California?

“We hope so,” Hudler said. “We’re going to play hard and we’ll see what happens.”

Larry Brooks On The Pittsburgh Penguins

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Can’t find many folks who believe Mike Johnston will get a second go-round behind the Pittsburgh bench.

Evgeni Malkin is in at a $9.5 million annual cap charge through 2021-22, so good luck to the Penguins trying to start their rebuild/retool by moving No. 71 for a package that might include the elite winger Sidney Crosby desperately needs by his side.

How many times in the five-game series against the Rangers — and how many times throughout the year — was Crosby wide open in great scoring position but failed to get the puck?

Seriously, it’s not like Wayne Gretzky ever had, say, Bill Berg on his line.

Oh wait. Yes, he did. Never mind.

Though you would have to say that No. 87 bears some responsibility of his own for having scored in two of the Penguins’ last 23 playoff matches.

more topics including concussions and 'Katy Perry'...

The Stamkos-Garrison ‘double team’ on Abdelkader was…suspect

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

I'm a biased Red Wings fan pretending to be an objective blogger on the internet, and I understand that Jason Garrison was very annoyed at Justin Abdelkader for the accidental/apologized-for ankle injury and/or concussion suffered in the Wings and Bolts' last regular-season meeting, but this reminded me of Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger's double-teaming of Tomas Holmstrom circa 2007:

Abdelkader emerged from the exchange with his head still on his shoulders and no head injury, but the Lightning continued to attempt to injure Red Wings players for the balance of the third period, and usually the team that's the first to crack in the physical department has the shortest spring.

The Wings scored the 3-0 goal on the Stamkos penalty; why Garrison wasn't penalized, and why both sides weren't penalized on some of these exchanges, is beyond me.
