LATEST STORIES FROM KUKLA'S KORNER

Discussing Bob Cole

from Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post, On some nights, it seems to slice into the very fabric of the country. Canadians, watching the same broadcast, hear two very different voices. Some hear a man lost, wandering two steps behind the play, in a game that has passed him by. Others evangelize the voice of a legend. And now, in the age of Twitter, it is possible to watch...

LA Kings Looking For Their Offense

from Helene Elliott of the LA Times, Quick was good enough. He stopped 23 shots and, before Jackman's effort, yielded only a goal that caromed off Patrik Berglund's foot at 3:44 of the third period. The Kings' offense, though, wasn't nearly adequate. The Kings have scored two goals on Brian Elliott in two games: one after Quick was pulled for an extra skater...

Rangers Not Good Enough Against The Caps

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, The Rangers are all wearing t-shirts with the message “Stay Positive” across their chests, and for the most part that’s what they were following last night’s 3-1 defeat to the Capitals in Game 1 of the first-round series. There was much talk about having done “a lot of good things,” and that wasn’t entirely off-base regarding...

Ducks/Wings Series Could Be Classic

from Craig Custance of ESPN, Even as Detroit opened a three-goal lead, Boudreau and the Ducks kept pushing. “They were always talking about, Get one and we can get two,” Boudreau said. “Get one and we can get two.” By the time Bobby Ryan tied the game late in the third period, it felt like an inevitability. The push from the Ducks got stronger and stronger as...

Red Wings-Ducks quick take: Nyquist, Wings nearly blow it, blow over Ducks

I'm just gonna get this out here and write a quick take in a minute: the Red Wings absolutely blew a 3-goal lead and played awful hockey during the latter half of the 3rd period in Anaheim, from Jimmy Howard on out, but the Wings got a decisive power play going into OT and scored their 3rd early period PPG, with Gustav Nyquist scoring the gamer in a 5-4 OT win. Detroit goes...

Habs down 1-0, Eller out

Not the start the Habs wanted. 50 shots and nothing to show for it. 1-0 Ottawa. Terrible hit on Lars Eller, who is in hospital with a concussion, facial fractures, and is staying there overnight. It seems unlikely he'll be back in this series, given how quickly the games are being played. Look for Jeff Halpern to slot in tomorrow night, and Brandon Prust to move up with Gallagher...

Video- Eric Gryba Hit On Lars Eller Tonight

Not a good scene on the ice, hope Eller will be ok. Yes a terrible pass by Raphael Diaz, but when are players going to learn to take a player out of the play, not the game. Gryba received 5 for interference, a 10 and game misconduct.

No Matter How Soft And Innocent Those Blue Eyes May Be? Don’t Trust Them or Her

Bullet Bob Seger was a young man in the early 70's. He, because he felt change would do him good, headed west.  It was there that his world crumbled when he put a lot of stock into some surface emotions.  Yes, I know.  Young, dumb and full of...enthusiasm.  She swindled him though.  She led him on and then crushed his soul. But don't blame her. Oh no.   Continue...

We've got a killer on the road.  Todd Bertuzzi, loved around the league for his philanthropy, will join the Wing lineup tonite according to Teddy Kulfan.

9:30pm ET Start In St. Louis Has Both Sides Talking

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, "I don’t know if we’ve done that, but keep the people at the TV networks happy, I guess," Blues captain David Backes said with a shrug after the morning skate Thursday. "Whatever it is, it is. [The Kings] are playing at the same time." Anze Kopitar was scratching his head but couldn’t remember ever playing this late...

Do you agree or disagree with Art Regner at FoxSports Detroit, Perry, in trying to avoid Howard, leaped in air and clipped Howard in the face with his skate. Perry received a two-minute goalie-interference penalty, which the Wings squandered.  Howard appeared momentarily dazed but continued to play.

From the Dub: “Hey Sam”

Don, Don, Don, seriously? Still sticking to that no girls allowed in the locker room story, eh? Not but a few days after Don Cherry's words that will live in infamy, Jason Collins made history when he announced publicly that he is gay. I see Cherry is trying to cover his tracks, but he's still missing the point. Somewhere between the stone age of "no girls allowed"...

Hockey At Its Peak Right Now

from Roy MacGregor of the Globe and Mail, Think of it as the Reverse Stanley Cup. Most long-time fans do. They have learned, after decades of spring watching, that hockey is the only sport where the season climax does not come at the end. It is on right now. The season high point can at times spread into the second round. But by and large, as NHL playoffs grew...
