Jon Cooper Starts The Mind Games

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

After pointing out that pundits have counted his group out all season long, he noted that Montreal has a recent history of squandering leads in the playoffs.

"We got home ice and didn’t deliver the way clearly we wanted to," Cooper said after Sunday’s morning skate at the Bell Centre. "So now you look in the room at those guys and (say) `What do we have to lose?’ Everyone thinks we’re supposed to lose. Now I’m hearing (we’re) done, (we’ll) be on the golf course by Wednesday, I’ve heard it all. But at some point they’re going to have to do that in front of their fans, try and knock us out.

"I’m sure they’ve never had a 2-0 lead on the road and come back and blown it."

Cooper was likely referencing the 2011 playoffs against Boston, but could also have been alluding to a 2006 series with Carolina or a 1996 series against the New York Rangers. On all three occasions, the Habs won the opening two games on the road but still lost the series.

None of you have been able to really enjoy an Easter in close to 25 years.  Blame the Red Wings for that.  While fans of other teams have stress-free holidays every other year or so?

Red Wings-Bruins Game 2 game-day updates: On Loosick, Ericsson, Kronwall and game-day chatter

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Updated 4x at 2:25 PM: The Detroit Red Wings will battle the Boston Bruins later today (3 PM EDT on NBC, TSN and 97.1 FM), hoping to persist amidst accusations of "subtle interference" and Milan Lucic's attempts to play Feelyat with Danny DeKeyser's...Parts.

NESN, Bruins Daily, WEEI, Pro Hockey Talk (times two), the Associated Press, Reuters, MLive's Brendan Savage (with a "What They're Saying" antecedent), and as Paul noted, the Boston Globe's Kevin Dupont have penned game-day previews and/or "Spirit of the Thing" articles, as did the Toronto Sun's Rob Longley (via RedWingsFeed):

The Chicago Blackhawks Are Not Playing Their Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Brophy of CBC,

The Blackhawks find themselves trailing their first round series with the St. Louis Blues 2-0, having blown two games they should have won. Chicago led 3-2 in Game 1, but gave up a goal to Jaden Schwartz of the Blues at 18:24 of the third period and lost when Alex Steen scored after just 26 seconds of overtime.

Chicago's response?

They came back in Game 2 with one of their most goofy and unglued performances in years. The defending Stanley Cup champs, who also won the championship in 2009-10, were uncharacteristically undisciplined from veteran defenceman Duncan Keith delivering cheap shots to Blues players with his stick and foolishly waving his stick in the face of Vladimir Tarasenko while lined up for a faceoff to fellow blue-liner Brent Seabrook delivering a horrible head shot check that knocked Blues captain David Backes out of the game and will probably result in Seabrook receiving a multi-game suspension.

The end result was the same. Chicago led 3-2 late in the third period, but the Blues forced overtime when Vladimir Tarasenko scored at 19:53 and then won it on an OT tally by defenceman Barret Jackman.

Keith's silliness was completely out of character. And so will the Blackhawks early departure from the playoffs be out of character if Keith and his teammates don't halt the foolishness and get back to playing sound, intelligent hockey.

Open Post- Puck Drops On Four Games Today

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

How about 4 games today, basically 12 1/2 hours of hockey with a nice break around dinner time in the eastern time zone.

Most of you would probably agree with me, the playoff games have been great and we have only started.

Sit back, enjoy and may the best teams win today.

NHL Short Notes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Vladimir Tarasenko scored the tying goal with 6.4 seconds remaining in regulation and Barret Jackman tallied the game-winner at 5:50 of overtime to lead the Blues to their second consecutive come-from-behind victory in extra time.

* In Game 1, Jaden Schwartz evened the score with 1:45 remaining in regulation and Alexander Steen potted the winning goal 26 seconds into triple-overtime. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it marks just the third time in Stanley Cup Playoffs history that a team has won consecutive games in one series when trailing in the final two minutes of regulation in each contest. The others: the Canadiens in Games 1 and 2 against the Bruins in the 1969 Semifinals and the Flyers in Games 3 and 4 versus the Maple Leafs in the 1977 Quarterfinals.
