Found January 17, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
The KHL All Star Game will be played this Saturday in Riga, Latvia. It is always interesting to see which players make the AHL All Star rosters as almost all of them have been seen in North America in the past. The game is West Conference against East Conference. Each team has a big name player as their captain. In the past it was Team Jaromir Jagr representing the East and Team Alexei Yashin representing the West. This season Jagr is playing in the NHL with the Philadelphia Flyers and Yashin missed the beginning of this season while trying to catch on in the NHL. Thus new captains are needed. Hometown boy Sandis Ozolinsh captains the West and Sergei Fedorov captains the East. Here are the rosters: Continue reading "KHL All Star Game"

The Famous Claude Giroux Sign Girl Speaks

Last night, a girl in the front row held a sign that got Claude Giroux's attention. The video of her flipping out when G came over to the glass made its way around the internet. Her name? Brandi Johnson. Brandi let us know that she was a big fan of the site and that she reads it everyday. To that, we said thank you. In addition, she answered a few questions for us about her encounter...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: 1/16/12

There is no doubt that Claude Giroux and Jaromir Jagr have been struggling of late, but there is no reason to be overly concerned about either player. It's just a midseason slump. In particular, I don't think Giroux is still suffering any ill-effects from his concussion in December. Be's simply not playing very well lately and has been pressing the last few games....

A Brief E-mail Interview with Ian Laperriere

With all the concussions that are happening in the National Hockey League this year, I figured now would be a good time to do an e-mail interview with an NHLer who has had one and that is Ian Lapperriere. Lapperriere has not played in the NHL since the 2009-10 season due to post-concussion syndrome. Ian was kind enough to take the time to tell us about how he got into hockey, how...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: 1/18/12

In baseball terms, the Philadelphia Flyers had a hanging curveball of a matchup last night against a struggling Minnesota Wild team that was playing without its best forward and its number one goalie. Philly came in with plenty of motivation to get their pre-All Star Break mini-homestand (3 of 4 games) off to a strong start. To their credit, the Flyers blasted that hanging curve...

Islanders-Flyers Preview

The Philadelphia Flyers have been playing well since hosting and losing the Winter Classic, especially at home. A visit from the New York Islanders on Thursday night doesn't figure to stop that momentum. Philadelphia looks for its 27th victory in 29 meetings with New York as it tries to extend its winning streak to a season-best four at home, where it has defeated the Islanders...
