Greetings from the Garden, where both Tom Renney and I were subjected to the same security measures as we walked in seconds apart this afternoon.
I suppose it’s reassuring that in the eyes of MSG security, there is no difference between a schleppy newspaper reporter and the head coach of the New York Rangers. Then again, Renney is wearing a particularly loud sportcoat tonight, so that might have arisen more suspicion right there.
Beyond that, not a lot to report just yet. According to Renney, Darius Kasparitis’ numbers from his on-ice conditioning test today were not up to standard, but that the defenseman will be given another shot tomorrow.
Still no word on who’s dressing and who’s sitting on the Colton Orr/Jason Ward front, but I’ll know before the puck drops. Stay tuned.
