Apparently we’ve come a long way from the doldrums of November, back when maybe five beat reporters and a single camera crew would be on hand for pre-game sessions at the Garden.
Now the entire press room is overloaded with new tables and chairs to accomodate the excess media, while the eating area has been shifted to a new location downstairs.
I don’t care if this means me taking an elbow to the midsection to get a quote from the likes of Jagr and Shanahan. It’s good to see the rest of the world has caught on to the charms of hockey. Now if only there was this much interest in my exploits in late night beer leagues…
Meanwhile, some updates:
As for Prucha, the left wing in some fans’ eyes has been quiet thus far, but not when you consider it was his hustle that set up Michael Nylander’s game-winning goal in Game 1. He’ll continue to be used on the top power play unit.
OK, that’s all for now. The plan is for the intrepid Josh Thomson to blog during the game. But he’s a BU guy, so I’m not sure if he can figure that out.
