Ovechkin Gets A “Gamer”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post,

Ovechkin, a player as likable as he is talented, was sent off 4 minutes 52 seconds into the second period after he checked Daniel Briere, the Sabres' high-scoring captain, into the side boards from behind. Briere, who had dumped the puck and was heading for the bench for a line change, hit the boards headfirst, sending his helmet flying. "He just turn around, and I don't have time to stop," said Ovechkin, who scored the Capitals' third goal of the opening eight minutes. "I'm not trying to give not clean kind of hit. It's a game; that happens." Ovechkin received five minutes for fighting, five for boarding and a game misconduct. Briere, meantime, returned for his next shift.

ESPN Won’t Air NHL Spots

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks at the NY Post,

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and NHL Enterprises president Ed Horne each told Slap Shots this week that ESPN has refused to accept commercial advertising from the league. It's always interesting when bullies - we're not referring to individuals, but rather entities - collide, isn't it?

Shocker- Cherry Supports Fighting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via the CBC,

Hockey commentator Don Cherry says fighting is a part of hockey and has a place in today's NHL. "(Fighting) has been going on for 50 years . . . 100 years," Cherry said on CBC's Coaches Corner segment during Saturday's Hockey Night in Canada broadcast. Cherry was supporting comments made last week by Phoenix Coyotes tough guy Georges Laraque, who said that the post-lockout NHL's emphasis on speed is phasing out the role of the traditional enforcer.

The Travels Of Tim Thomas

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Times,

Goalies who have starred at the top level of Finnish hockey, the SM-liiga, are the soup du jour in the N.H.L. One who belongs in that category but has largely escaped notice is Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins.... “When I first went over,” Thomas, 32, said from Boston, “what helped was my experience with USA Hockey — I’d been on three tours during the summers, so I was used to the bigger ice. It wasn’t as big an adjustment as it might’ve been. They’re all good passing the puck, and there was no hook-and-hold. But I’d already seen it.”

Old School- Mickey Redmond Remembers “Toe” Blake

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Doug Ward at NHL.com,

To gain a greater appreciation for the game Mickey Redmond will never forget, it helps to understand the dynamic of the player-coach relationship that existed in the "Original Six" era of the NHL. In addition to having respect for Toe Blake, his Hall of Fame coach as a rookie with the Montreal Canadiens in 1967-68, Redmond says he had another sentiment. “I was deathly afraid of him,” Redmond, now a television analyst for the Detroit Red Wings, says with a chuckle.

Gordie Getting Better

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

As you probably know, Gordie Howe's wife Colleen suffers from Pick's Disease, or dementia. The last several months have been hard on him and the entire Howe family. But, he's slowly coming to grips with her condition. Via Slam,

"It's hard at times like this, at Christmas, because I don't know what to do. I was always thinking she would do this. We're going out later with Mark to go through the stores and come up with something." Through all of this, Howe remains a class act and wants nothing more than to remain in touch with the game and the fans who still flock to see him. "That's been my life," Howe said. "I try to be respectful to the game of hockey and its followers. That's because some wise old man told me if someone is interested enough in you to ask for your autograph, you should be interested enough to sign it."
