Dobber Sports

2010-04-02

 

Alex Burrows is playing tonight. No word on Daniel Sedin yet.

 

For those of you with center ice, you won’t want to miss tonight’s game between Colorado and Calgary. The Flames trail the Avalanche by only two points for the final spot in the West.

 

Someone gives you $100 bucks to bet on the NHL playoffs – you are laying your coin down on…

 

David Krejci skated with Marco Sturm and Miro Satan at practice this morning. Why is this significant? Because Krejci has been stuck with dead weight (in the form of Ryder and Wheeler) for most of the season. Sturm leads the B’s in goals, and Satan has been playing some solid hockey over the past few weeks. Another interesting line combo to come of Bruins practice is Bergeron between Recchi and Lucic.

 

I want to wish Dobber a very happy birthday! He is turning somewhere between Patrick O'Sullivan's plus-minus and Alex Ovechkin's shots on goal total.

 

Jonathan Bernier looked a bit shaky last night – good thing he got a “bit” of goal support. After the game, Terry Murray said he plans to play Quick heavily during the final few games for the Kings. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the last we have seen of Bernier until next season.

 

Roberto Luongo would like to formally apologize to all of our readers who own him. Bye bye goalie points for this week! He allowed eight goals on only 29 shots. Ro8berto? How does that sound?

 

Alex Burrows took a Jarret Stoll slapper to the throat last night in a very scary situation. Apparently he can speak and may even play tomorrow, but I doubt the Canucks will want to risk anything. They got smoked last night, but Henrik Sedin looked pretty good skating on a makeshift top unit with Kesler and Raymond.

 

 

Do you like winning free stuff? Check out the final week of the Down the Stretch contest – up for grabs is an autographed photo of Brenden Morrow!

 

This is Erik Karlsson’s world, and we are just living in it! The kid is on fire right now (10 points in his past six games)! Two more goals last night.

 

Jason Spezza has 11 points in his past four games. He should be up with Sedin and Ovechkin competing for the Art Ross, but he usually finds a way to miss 10-20 games due to injury. If he ever finds a way to play 75+ games, he should be right around the 100-point mark. It is what makes drafting him so frustrating – everyone knows what kind of player he could/should be. I bet a lot of people soured on him this season after a very slow start without Heatley.

 

Nick Backstrom scored his 30th of the season last night. Since he scored 10 goals back in the SEL in 2005-06, he has progressed to 12, then 14 (rookie season), then 22 last year, and finally 30. I wonder how much higher he can go? For a guy who gets l
