The Check

Many fans were looking for the "check" a Flames fan tried to deliver thru the glass last Friday. You can view it at Off Wing Opinion or here. A little background can be read at Calgary Puck. image

Will The Swedes Compete

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Journal via the Vancouver Sun,

Detroit general manager Ken Holland said it was never his intention to build a Swedish stronghold in Motor City. Their presence just happened to fit the team's blueprint. "Then I went to Steve Yzerman the third day in training camp and told him we're looking at a veteran forward, a Swede. 'We've got six, what's your feeling on adding one more?' Steve said, 'Is he going to compete?' I told him he would. He said 'They're not Swedes, they're hockey players.'

How Good Are You

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Kukla's Korner has always been a stop for knowledgeable hockey fans. Well, time to prove it! I'd like to see who you think will win each series. Will teams down 2-0 right their ship and win the series, or are they toast? Since we have a better feel of each team, are upsets still in the future, will some teams bounce back, etc... Normally, I don't ask for your participation, but now is the time to let your views be known. If you only want to comment on a few matchups, that is fine too. Canadiens lead Hurricanes 2-0 Sabres lead Flyers 2-0 Lightning & Senators tied 1-1 Devils lead Rangers 2-0 Wings & Oilers tied 1-1 Avs lead Stars 2-0 Flames & Ducks tied 1-1 Sharks & Predators tied 1-1

Flyers Marching Uphill

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

The Flyers might as well come out for Game Three dressed in gray and whistlin' Dixie. They're no match for the team they are up against. Speed is the Sabres hill, their position of superiority, and Philly lacks the artillery to mount a meaningful counter. Granted, it'll be a different game when the action shifts to Philadelphia on Wednesday night. It's readily apparent where this series is headed. Incapable of skating with the Sabres, the Flyers will be dragging the game into the gutter, trying to play the intimidation card.

Flames In Trouble

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

Make no mistake, the Calgary Flames are in trouble. Outplayed at home the first two games of the playoffs by an Anaheim squad that force-fed the hosts a heaping helping of their own medicine, the Flames now head to a building where they've won once in the last seven seasons. While the first two games were close enough to go either way, the most casual of observers can see the Flames have been slightly out-chanced and out-skated by a young, feisty bunch that has done the unthinkable -- beat Calgary at its own game.

Look In The Mirror Time For Flyers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Philly Burbs,

“I'm not going to tell you anything that isn't already obvious,” Mike Knuble said. “We were out-everythinged tonight. That's a start (five goals allowed in the first period) I've never been a part of and been run over like that before. We basically handed it to them, sloppy penalties (17 in all for 61 minutes), mistakes. “Five minutes into the game it was basically over. It was a disgrace on our part. Every guy should go home and look in the mirror and figure out how we're going to be better on Wednesday.”

Theodore Must Step Up

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Denver Post,

What turned out to be most remarkable about Colorado's 5-4 overtime victory over the Stars in Game 2 of the first-round series at the American Airlines Center was that even after they were reeling, even after they could reasonably have been planning the "got-a-split" speeches and rationalization, the Avs were resilient. This series isn't over, and that's both figurative and literal.... Now the issues are where they go from here, and whether Theodore is up to being more than along for the ride.

Playoff “Joke”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News Journal,

"I think it's a joke," Hatcher said before Monday night's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. "It's not how they called it the last 10, 15 games of the season; it's back to how they called it in the preseason. "If that's how they were going to call it, they should have started it 10 games ago. I thought the refereeing was great going down the stretch. They found a pretty good balance. Now, it's back to where it was in the preseason, and to me that's wrong."
