Hockey notes of the day

•The Pasadena ice rink -- all 150 feet by 90 feet of it -- is adding two stick times on Tuesday nights -- at 6:30 and 7:45. There are also stick times at 7:45 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays. It can be crowded but at least it's a chance to get out there with the puck and skate a little.

•If you are hoping to see the Kings and Ducks meet in the second round of the playoffs, they both obviously need to win their first-round matchups and also have Detroit beat Phoenix and Chicago topple top-seeded Vancouver. This seems u-n-l-i-k-e-l-y.

•I got a note from a regular reader praising the Weekend Warrior hockey camps held throughout the U.S.; he had just attended one back east and wrote that it really improved his game. There is a camp coming up from May 12 to 15 at South Lake Tahoe. I perused the website and it looks great for basically anyone who can already skate -- you get a ton of ice time and a structured environment to learn the game. It's not cheap -- $725, not including lodging or travel there.
