NHL Notes

1. PRONGER TRIES STEALING PUCK AGAINST CANADIENS

Chris Pronger once again tried to keep the game puck but this time he didn’t get away with it. Pronger, who is in his second season with the Flyers picked up the game puck at the end of their 3-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens and was going to skate off the ice with it until Canadiens captain Brian Gionta and Scott Gomez approached him and got the puck back. Pronger of course got a lot of attention last spring for picking up and keeping the pucks after the first two games against the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup finals. “I was going to give it to a precious kid in the stands that could look at that puck and enjoy the moment he got to see,” Pronger who has nine points and is a +4 said with a grin. “I guess I didn’t get the opportunity.”

2. MEMORIAL SERVICE HELD AT SCOTIABANK PLACE

Hockey took a back seat on Wednesday as the Ottawa Senators delayed their flight out to Raleigh N.C. in order to support their assistant coach and former player Luke Richardson whose 14 year-old daughter Daron died of a suicide last weekend. Students from Daron’s school showed up for a momorial in Scotiabank Place along with players and management. The Richardson’s are soliciting donations to the Royal Ottawa Health Foundation’s Youth Program in lieu of flowers.
