For The Sake Of The #1 Pick, Avs Should Continue To Lose

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

This is why, if I were the owner of a last-place pro sports team, I would be involved in a mega-scandal involving thrown games: If I’m Stan Kroenke right now, my pregame message to the Avalanche the rest of the season would be: “This is a must-lose game tonight. Now go out there and tank it for the team!”

Should the Avs tank it so they can get the first pick in June’s NHL draft? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.

The Difference Between The Leafs & Rangers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,

Nik Antropov wants to stress that he is not slagging the Maple Leafs.

At the same time, the veteran forward admits noticing a difference between his former team and the New York Rangers, the squad he was shipped to at the trade deadline two weeks ago.

“The whole team is really close here,” Antropov said in a phone interview. “That’s something we never really had in Toronto the past few years.

“One of the reasons is all the new faces we had with the Leafs in the last two or three years. And then there were different coaches, different systems. That all plays a part in it.

“It’s not a shot at Toronto. I loved my time there. But I did notice the difference when I got here.”

Too Many Shots

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull,

Detroit fired 48 shots on net and took 35 other shots for a total of 83. Repeat: 83. The Flyers took 37 shots (26 on net).  You cannot allow a team to take 83 shots and expect to win.

  In their last three games, the Flyers have allowed 41, 39 and 48 shots on goal.

  That’s not acceptable if the team thinks it’s a Stanley Cup contender.

Rangers Playing Their Best Hockey Of The Season

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

It was 4-3 here last night over the Canadiens in a shootout during which the Rangers went three-for-three against a Still Not Ready for Primetime Carey Price, and even though Montreal did get the loser’s point, the point is that the Blueshirts are playing their best hockey of the season.

“We’ve become a very aggressive team in every sense,” said Paul Mara, part of a defense corps that punished the Canadiens all night long, taking the body and with menace at every opportunity. “We’re on the attack, and we’re not shying away from anything anywhere on the ice.”

Brodeur Breaks The Wins Record: A Retrospective

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

In honor of Martin Brodeur breaking the NHL goaltender wins record by posting his 552nd career regular season win over Chicago 3-2, I thought I would take this time to try to put his career into perspective a bit. 

I have written some posts in the past that have attempted to do this, so a link to a couple of the highlights follows and then my own attempt to rank the top ten goaltenders of all time.

Matt Cooke Hit On Zach Bogosian

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The Thrashers Zach Bogosian left the game in the 2nd period and did not return after injuring his left knee on a hit by the Penguins Matt Cooke.

About 2/3 of the way into the video, you will see the video in slow motion.

Brodeur Wins

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

Martin Brodeur stands alone.

The New Jersey Devils’ standout goalie earned his 552nd victory, the most wins ever by an NHL goalie, Tuesday night at Prudential Center, besting the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 before a raucous crowd that chanted “Marty, Marty” and “Marty’s better” throughout the game.


After the game, Brodeur, with a little help from his teammates, cut the net away from the posts.  Probably will make a very nice keepsake.

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Yes, we moved away from Seger for the evening.  You’ll have to name that tune, and if you’ve been reading today it shouldn’t be difficult.

So, are you excited about showing that V tonite?  I’ll bet you are considering Gary’s gonna push the take button to send it to the Devil feed if Marty’s beating the Hawks headed into the third.  How’s that hit you Wing fans?

Here’s the deal.  Anyone who has a backup feed we can all switch to needs to be ready to provide that link if The V does us a dirty.

Who Am I?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

“Hello, I’m wondering if you can guess who I am?

“Before Tuesday night’s games, I had more goals this season than Jarome Iginla, Phil Kessel, Evgeni Malkin, Alexander Semin, Vincent Lecavalier, Henrik Zetterberg, Sidney Crosby, Pavel Datsyuk and Martin St. Louis. But I’m pretty sure if you ran into me on the street, you wouldn’t know who the heck I was. Which is fine, because I don’t crave the attention.

“My name is ...

continued & anyone want to guess before Pierre discloses the answer?

Tweet-Up the NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

Thanks to @hockeycardshow (site: The Hockey Card Show) and @nhldigest (site: NHL Digest), we came across this nifty little application for Twitter users. NHL Game Tag.

NHL GameTag helps fans find other fans through Twitter. By simply tweeting #nhlgametag along with the home team abbreviation (SJS, DET, COL, etc) NHL GameTag will collect the tweets and group them together by arena.

Fans inside the arena will be able to communicate about the game and meet other fans. Others outside the arena will be able to get information and a sense of what’s happening in a unique way not possible by just watching on TV.

Go here to check it out, and here for an explanation on how it works.  Great idea!
