Went to my first pro hockey game last night at the Ice Palace in Tampa. Watched the Lightning beat Phoenix 5-3. Vinne had 2 goals, Marty and Brad Richards also scored for Tampa. I think Paul Ranger had Tampa's other goal. Had a blast! Hoping we make the playoffs. You fellows better keep an eye on Tampa, they're coming on!

Two years ago we were coming home from practice.

Stopped at a gas station/convenience store for snacks.

Kid behind the counter has a name tag that says "Derek".

My son tells him that's his name too.

Clerk says "my dad named me after some hockey player".

We both burst out laughing like loons.

After we stopped laughing, we let him in on the joke, and Derek gave him a brief history of "that hockey player".

Last night the Bruins celebrated the 50th anniversary of John "Chief" Bucyk's affiliation with the team. During the pre-game skate all the players wore jersey #9, is was a pretty cool sight.

About 15 years ago I had the chance to meet and spend some time with him at a couple of events and even was his guest at a Bruins game. There isn't a more honest, down-to-earth and classy guy in all of sports, IMO.

The Turk -- in many ways he was what those teams were all about -- the "cool hip swinging bachelor" type -- all the guys wanted to be like him, all the girls wanted to be with him -- was business partners with Joe Willie Namath owning a string of bars etc...
However -- the fact of the matter is that he was an excellent fundamental player -- great sweepchecker, one of the best in the league at the time at winning faceoffs, also one of the best penalty killers in the league (along with long time linemate Eddie Westfall) -- and solid offensively as well.
Also a great fighter -- Turk wasn't the biggest guy in the world but he still didn't lose too many!

He has been through the highest of highs (including being the highest paid ahtlete in the world at one time) and lowest of lows (including living on the streets streets of Chicago and New York and feeding his addiction by stealing booze from other homeless people).

Most folks I know here in the great white north cheer for more then one team. You have your favourite and then a couple you don't mind rooting for when the late game is on Saturday night.
Me Leafs number One (born in the t.Dot) then I always cheer for the Oil (Good fans, great Ceasers at Skyreach).
Live near Vancouver but have a hardtime cheering for the nucks (Nuckleheads take bandwagon jumping to an all new level) and will never cheer for Ottawa (maybe if going for Stanley).
Habs. Flames are enjoyable to watch on most nights. Used to get habs games in French that was always good for a laugh. "De turd star, numero dix, number 10!!! Guy Lafluer!!!
Most important other then to funny types like CDNMULE is always cheer for the CDN team over any US team.

Almost all the players are Canadian any way. The good ones anyway.

Yes I love Buffalo. Mostly because I have taken so many Toronto dollars with them. Just love those Leaf fans and their money. Trouble is that after paying me so often it is hard to get them to bet anymore.

Sabres' Tim Connolly Skating Again
Friday, February 9, 2007 6:48 PM EST
The Associated Press
By JOHN WAWROW

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Tim Connolly is free of his headaches, but not of some questions. The Buffalo Sabres center still couldn't say Friday when he would be ready to return after sustaining the second serious concussion of his career 10 months ago.

"There's no set date. There's no timeline," Connolly said after taking part in his fourth practice this week since being cleared to skate with his teammates. "I'm not going to speculate about that right now. I just come in each day knowing what I have to do and work as hard as I can to get through."


What mattered most to Connolly is that he made it through another session free of the debilitating headaches that have sidelined him since he was hurt in Game 2 of Buffalo's second-round playoff series against Ottawa last May.

"I feel pretty good," Connolly said smiling through a sheen of sweat that covered his face after the 90-minute session in which he was the second-to-last player off the ice.

Still not allowed to take part in contact drills, Connolly showed he had not lost some of his shooting touch, twice banging slap shots off the post.

With his head clear, a neck and jaw problem also corrected and his rusty skills beginning to re-emerge, Connolly's final test is getting his body in shape after being stagnant — he didn't start working out until about six weeks ago — for an extended period.

"It was up there but it's coming off quickly," Connolly said, referring to his body weight. "It's going to be a long process and a lot of hard work, but I'm definitely looking forward to the challenge."

Coach Lindy Ruff said it's possible Connolly could be back within two months, just in time for the playoffs. But Ruff cautioned that he's not going to rush him back.

The Sabres are taking a cautious approach in part because the six-year NHL veteran missed the entire 2003-04 season after sustaining a concussion during a preseason game.

Connolly's potential return, however, would provide the Eastern Conference-leading Sabres a big boost.

He's a play-making center, who was enjoying a breakout year last season, his fourth in Buffalo after the team acquired him in a deal that sent former captain Michael Peca to the New York Islanders.

Despite missing 19 games with a knee injury, Connolly finished fifth on the Sabres with 16 goals and 39 assists in 63 regular-season games. He had five goals and six assists in eight playoff games before he was hurt, caught skating through the middle with his head down when he failed to avoid a clean check by Ottawa's Peter Schaefer.

Although the injury was severe, it didn't stop the Sabres from re-signing Connolly to a three-year $8.7 million contract in July. The prognosis at the time was Connolly would potentially miss the start of training camp.

Connolly, however, was still experiencing headaches in December, which raised fears that he would miss the entire season.

The initial breakthrough came when doctors discovered Connolly had a degenerative protruding disk in his upper back that was affecting his neck and potentially contributing to his headaches. Doctors also corrected a jaw joint that prevented him from closing his mouth.

Connolly then began a series of light workouts at the University at Buffalo as part of the school's newly introduced post-concussion rehab program.

The combination of treatments led to Connolly receiving clearance to skate on his own earlier this month.

"I knew I'd eventually be here. But I didn't know it would take this long," Connolly said. "It's kind of been frustrating not to be out there."

His teammates were happy to see him back practicing.

"It's very encouraging," co-captain Daniel Briere said. "The first thing we want for Tim is to get back to living a normal life. After that, if he can come back and play, it's a big plus."


Sadly, word out of Buffalo this week is that Tim has a stress fracture of the leg just below the knee.

Ollie out 3 weeks or more with a knee injury.

Crapitals still managed to get a point without him in a shoot out loss to the lightning tonight.

Zubrus scored with 15.7 seconds left to force OT.

I see six teams in each conference with a good shot at making the finals.

I don't see any of the six teams from the East beating any of the six from the west, lol.

This trade didn't help matters any!

I believe Detroit might be more interested in Forsberg after he becomes a free agent,not a short term rental.

And looking at the standings this morning,Wings are 1 point ahead of Nashville.
