Between you and me, this breaks a superstition that I should not post anything after Bill fires off the live blog, and as Paul already mentioned this, I would usually take to TMR’s Facebook page or Twitter to let you know that the game-day update post includes a significant addition  as of 6:18 PM (and it does, including the Wings website’s game-day preview and another Ken Holland radio interview)... But this is too cool to stuff in the game-day post. Red Wings forward Jan Mursak and Los Angeles Kings superstar Anze Kopitar both hail from the hockey hotbed of Slovenia, a very small Eastern European/Balkan country which can boast 2.05 million residents and a land area just a wee bit smaller than Israel (i.e. it’s the 153rd-biggest country in the world, which is pretty damn small). The fact that Mursak and Kopitar are playing against each other for the first time has the country atwitter, as Mursak told MLive’s Ansar Khan...

Kopitar may generate Selke discussion

As the Los Angeles Kings attempted to revitalize their stalled offense over the past month, and as the team slipped from the more comfortable sixth or seventh place perch to toeing the line of the playoff barrier, center Anze Kopitar weathered the most advanced criticism faced in a six-year NHL career that began as a 19-year old rookie in 2006-07. Though selected to two All-Star...

Jacket fans boo Carter, then go home happy

In one sense, the Blue Jackets wanted to forget Jeff Carter's 39-game career in Columbus. Fans were welcomed, free of charge, to have the No. 7 sweaters stripped off Carter's last name and replaced with the club's new No. 7, defenseman Jack Johnson. But in another sense, fans in Columbus couldn't wait to give Carter a rude welcome back to Nationwide Arena on Thursday...

Los Angeles Kings becoming royal disappointment

The big-budget Los Angeles Kings are threatening to miss the playoffs.How could this be? This team has tons of talent. It already made a coaching change, from nice guy Terry Murray to taskmaster Darryl Sutter. Jonathan Quick has been exceptional in goal. The addition of goal scorer Jeff Carter gave the team a second offensive line to support the Anze Kopitar line, with Justin Williams...

Matthew Barry: It's Getting Harder and Harder to Support This Franchise

During the broadcast of the Kings dash for the playoffs, Bob Miller interviewed Jack Johnson. "When I came here they changed the way I played and I didn't really want to do that. It took me a while to learn. Since I've been traded, they let me play the way I want to play." Jack Johnson's goal beat the Kings tonight. I wonder if Anze Kopitar feels the...

Blue Jackets will change Jeff Carter jerseys into Jack Johnson jerseys for free

When the Blue Jackets signed winger Jeff Carter this past offseason, Columbus fans had plenty of reason to be excited. Carter was supposed to give them a perennial 30-goal scorer to play alongside Rick Nash and anchor one of the better lines in hockey for years to come. The marriage lasted only 39 games, with Carter becoming a malcontent and forcing his way out of town. Eventually...

The Slovenians Faceoff

from Bill Roose of DetroitRedWings.com, Anze Kopitar knew the day that two Slovenians playing against one another in the same NHL game would come sooner than later. That day is today. Kopitar leads his Los Angeles Kings into Joe Louis Arena tonight to face-off against the Red Wings, and his countryman and friend, Jan Mursak. “I’ve been waiting for this for a couple of years...
