How Many Points For A Moral Victory?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

The west coast trifecta is complete, thankfully. The Wings have now lost three in a row, and covered all the bases. A butt-kicking, an embarrassing loss to a hugely inferior team and, finally, outplaying a better team only to fall just short. Now that we have those out of the way, Wing fans can concentrate on looking forward to Tuesday...which we'll get to in a moment. Deep Digger captain Ansar Khan(!) guaranteed us Pavel Datsyuk would sit this one out, obviously a result of his nasty habit of taking Mike Babcock at his word. Nope. Datsyuk was in there and looking as good as I've seen him all year. Press box bound? Now here's where it gets interesting. Jason Williams. If there's anyone identified on this team as a project of Babcock's, it's Williams. Yet, upon the return of Delma Huddle--rather than scratch Hudler or Langfeld--Babcock decided it was statement time.

from the CP via the CBC,

Coach Guy Carbonneau called it the worst virus he has ever seen hit a hockey team.
And with about half his players recovering from a gastro-intestinal bug, the Montreal Canadiens went down to their season-high third consecutive defeat in a 3-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.
“I’m looking forward to this being over and for guys to get their strength back,” Carbonneau said. “When you feel like that and you play on consecutive days, it’s tough.”

Force ‘Em To Play

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Frei of the Denver Post,

Official penalties: The NHL suspended Orr for five games, Brashear for one.
What the penalty should be: Heard of “reverse mortgages”? There should be something called “reverse suspensions.” Rangers coach Tom Renney and Capitals coach Glen Hanlon should be required to play Orr and Brashear at least 22 minutes a game during their “reverse suspensions.”

Skating With The Stars

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Daily News,

Felicia Bellefontaine has won a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The 10-year-old from Mineville is going to stand in the starting lineup with the NHL All-Stars in Dallas.
Felicia was one of 12 lucky Canadian minor hockey players to win McDonald’s In The Line Up contest.
“She’s so excited to go,” said Felicia’s mother, Donna Horne, yesterday.
“She’ll probably be overwhelmed. I don’t think she realizes how big of a deal it really is until she gets there.”

Why Not Canada

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Mercury News,

Until the Penguins’ future in Pittsburgh is resolved, virtually every news story on the subject will round up the usual suspects of where the franchise might move: Kansas City, Mo.; Las Vegas; Oklahoma City; Houston, etc.
But unless it’s Winnipeg, Manitoba—a long shot—Canadian cities aren’t being mentioned and that’s a shame. With so many empty seats in places like Florida, Nashville and Phoenix, the league ought to think hard about establishing another operation in Canada.

Official Error

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

When San Jose scored at the 4:22 mark with Joe Pavelski redirecting a shot from Marleau at close range, play should have returned to 4-on-4, with Malhotra and Clowe remaining the box for another 17 seconds.
Instead, officials pulled Malhotra out of the box, keeping Clowe in the box for 17 seconds and Klesla for 43 seconds.
Twenty-one seconds after Clowe came out of the box, giving the Sharks a 5-on-4 advantage, San Jose scored to take a 2-0 lead….
t took most of the second period for officials to figure out an explanation.
“It’s a joke. That’s what it is, a joke,” Blue Jackets president and general manager Doug MacLean said. “You can’t score two power-play goals on the same power play.”
NHL director of officiating Stephen Walkom later released a statement: “The officials erred in the application of the rule following San Jose’s first power-play goal. The officials admitted the error to the Columbus club prior to the start of the second period.”
