It is fitting that the Rangers were able to finally let out a big sigh of relief on a night they were championing asthma awareness.
Of course, Pepto-Bismol Night might end up having a different look….
Meanwhile, some notes:
<li>John Dellapina in the News “reports the Rangers are at pursuing playing an outdoor game next winter at Yankee Stadium”:http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/hockey/rangers/2008/01/13/2008-01-13_rangers_may_get_date_at_yankee_stadium-4.html In the same report comes news that the season-opening two game set in Prague next fall against the Lightning is all but locked up.
Multiple reports also “have the Rangers in discussions”:http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=227157&hubname=nhl to bring in 40-year-old Curtis Joseph as a seasoned backup to Henrik Lundqvist for the playoff push. It doesn’t hurt that Joseph’s agent, Don Meehan, also represents Lundqvist, and that the two are already in preliminary conversation about a long-term extension for the King.
Maybe it’s not Marek Malik you should be booing, but me. Turns out around 6 p.m. last night my wife called and said my oldest son was throwing up and that she was worried about our newborn. For the first time in my career, I left an event to go home, only to see the Rangers break out of their slump and dominate the Canadiens on TV.So let’s get this straight: I take a few days off before Will is born and the Rangers win three straight. I come back to see them lose five straight, then leave a game early and watch them win again.
I wonder if they’ll even let me in the Garden next time…
