It appears the Rangers are going through a Counting Crows phase based on their choice in workout music lately.
I’m OK with that. In fact, at one point the other day I asked what album they kept playing since I didn’t have it, and it turns out it was a mix left behind by Jamie Lundmark.
And you thought you had heard the last of that name in New York…
Meanwhile, Glen Sather has already been contacted by Colin Campbell about Brendan Shanahan’s hit last night. The league is reviewing it, so expect a decision one way or the other at some point today. Bear in mind it could just be a fine and not a suspension.
Shanahan himself wouldn’t dispute that the hit was at least worth a penalty. But what he took issue with today was Lindy Ruff saying the cross-check on Clarke MacArthur was “an intent to injure.”
“I’ve got no problem with Lindy Ruff saying it was careless and reckless. I felt bad about that,” he said. “But Lindy saying that it was an intent to injure is careless and reckless on Lindy’s part. I know he wants to protect his players, but I think he should know me by now. He played against me. He’s coached against me for a number of years. So while it was careless and reckless, him throwing it out that it was an intent to injure was a stupid remark.”
Jaromir Jagr took another shot to the foot last night, but was able to laugh about it today.
“The puck used to follow me around to my stick. Now it follows me to my foot,” the Captain said. “I should be a soccer player.”
