2 Minutes For: Larman & Playoff Chatter

by Staff Writer / Florida Panthers
     
  Michael Vick is being released from prison this week. Just a warning for anyone with a dog. (our border collie has been unusually edgy lately). And, by the way, Vick will be on an NFL roster in a few months. Everyone gets a second chance.


LARMAN: HOCKEY PLAYER, FILMMAKER

Drew Larman, who played 22 games with the Panthers the past few years and spent last season in their team’s American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate in Rochester, spent Monday afternoon at the High Falls International Film Festival showing his first film, We Are One.

The five-minute film, according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, was shot approximately a year ago in New York City. Larman filmed people, including himself, walking the streets of New York before ending at Ground Zero.

“It shows we’re part of a bigger reality than we understand,” Larman said. “The more people realize we are one, the better. We may think we’re separate, but we’re really not.”

There’s a longer version of We Are One on YouTube. Check it out.

PLAYOFF CHATTER

The Hurricanes, who lost Game 1 in this year’s playoffs to New Jersey and Boston, left Mellon Arena with – what else? – a 3-2 loss in their opener against the Penguins. But don’t think this is going to be an easier series for Sid and the boys. If not Marc-Andre Fleury’s stop on Eric Staal in the final minute, the ‘Canes would have taken the game into OT.

Wings and ‘Hawks tonight. How can the Blackhawks beat the Red Wings? Well they can start getting better games from their stars. In Game 1, Patrick Kane was a minus-3 with no shots, Jonathan Toews was a minus-3 and Martin Havlat was minus-2 with two shots.

PASSING THOUGHTS

NFL, Major League Baseball and the NBA have filed statements asking U.S. Bankruptcy Court to respect the NHL’s rules on ownership transfer and relocation in the case of the Coyotes. Makes sense. Judge rules today.

The Staal Bros., Eric and Jordan, became the first set of brothers to meet in a conference final Monday night since Phil and Tony Esposito back in ’74, and only the fifth in NHL history.

Kelowna has earned an automatic berth in the championship final of the Memorial Cup. Hello? South Florida?

Bruins defenseman Steve Montador on the series-ending goal by Carolina’s Scott Walker: “It wouldn’t matter if Cam Ward scored it. A loss is a loss.”
 
 
Anna Kournikova, who took in a number of Panthers games a few years back, is working with the Boys and Girls Club of America and the Cartoon Network to educate children about the benefits of exercise. Good for her.

Dmitry Yushkevich.

Song of the day (and a tip of the hat to Larman): New York Town, by Black 47.
