Interesting turn of events, at opposite sides of the "spectrum"

EASTERN CONFERENCE: the numbers 1 thru 4 seated teams make the semi's

WESTERN CONFERENCE: *if Anaheim wins, the 5th thru 8th seeds make the semi's.

My guess is the eastern conference will be heavily favored if this occurs. Lots of sucker bets to follow in this scenario...dman

Default Rangers defenseman accused of drunken driving in White Plains

OZO going down the tubes..

http://www.lohud.com/apps/pbcs.dll/a...DATE/605030414

WHITE PLAINS — New York Rangers defenseman Sandis Ozolinsh was arrested on a drunk driving charge in White Plains after police said his blood-alcohol level was found to be more than twice the legal limit when he was pulled over for speeding.

The 33-year-old seven-time NHL all star's "eyes were bloodshot and glassy,'' and he "slurred his speech and swayed while he stood,'' according to a police report.

Officer John Lick stopped Ozolinsh shortly after 11 a.m. yesterday after he was allegedly clocked going 66 miles per hour in a 40 mph zone on eastbound Westchester Avenue. Ozolinsh, who was driving a blue 2006 Nissan Altima, had "a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage'' on his breath, the police report says.

He was arrested after a field test showed his blood-alcohol level to be .17 percent, more than twice the legal limit of .08 percent. Ozolinsh was taken to police headquarters, where he was charged with DWI, a misdemeanor and issued traffic violation summonses for speeding and driving without a seat belt. His car was impounded.

Ozolinsh, who gave an Anaheim, Calif., address, was released without bail yesterday afternoon and is scheduled to answer the charges in White Plains City Court on May 16.

Big addition to the post season roster, he'll have to bang the rust off though. I know he's been traveling with the team, so hopefully the amount of rust is neglible. Things are looking up...dman

Konowalchuk practices with Avs' second lineAssociated Press


DENVER -- Forward Steve Konowalchuk, who's been out of action since November because of a broken wrist, has been cleared to play as the Colorado Avalanche prepare for the Western Conference semifinals.

Konowalchuk, a 14-year veteran, was hurt Nov. 21 and missed the final 61 games of the regular season and Colorado's five-game upset of the Dallas Stars in the first round.

At the time of his injury, Konowalchuk was off to the best start of his career with 15 points through 21 games.

Konowalchuk has 21 points, including nine goals, in 50 career playoff games.

Konowalchuk skated on the second line at the Avs' practice on Wednesday. Coach Joel Quenneville was not at the workout because he was attending a funeral.

NOW WE need another defenseman to show up in round three (hopefully) of the playoffs. The give aways from our less talented Defenseman against dallas really were pretty bad at some points. SEE: Bill Guerin's goal , game 5....dman

Yeah we need some more depth along the blue-line, but not much can be done at this point.

EVERYBODY NEEDS TO CHEER FOR THE DUCKS TONIGHT!!!!

Sweet! Ok, at the risk of hoping for the best, I've queued up duckets for game one and game two for the Ducks round 2 just in case they win tonight. You know I plan on representing the Avs in the OC! Lets hope the Teemu, the Neidermeyers and JSG can come away with a win tonight so that the Avs can basically have a "home" series against the Ducks

Clocky, how is Sandy Clough and the radio geeks in Denver liking our chances against the remaining teams in the West? Are things starting to buzz around Denver yet?

Quinnie ain't the touchy feely sort. We were kinda wondering if he'll see the ice again.

Great news on Kono. I knew he was skating hard two weeks ago. Now if these few days of rest have been beneficial to Tanguay as well, there may be a little more speed to contend with.

Hopefully the extra rest does the trick for whatever's ailing Lappy too.

He HAS to see ice again, No way you go with 5 defenseman against Calgary (with blake on the ice every time Aginla's skate touches it), they'll get worn down in no time flat. Anaheim, even 5 D here won't make it through the series. My guess, Sauer gets some ice time, but not alot, and he'll be out with the opposition checking line if at all possible. Alot of folks missed the fact that our Theodore "covered" up constantly throughout game five AFTER that screw up by Sauer. He had to. We had 5 D rotating, and it was a way to get them short breathers during the game....dman

*No way on 5 D as a staple diet, ain't happenin.

Well... I'm pretty sure it's an "upper body injury".

No wait.

It must be a "lower body injury".

Ha.
