But where are the Adam Hall jerseys?


I can’t say this for sure, but I get the sense there is some sort of city law that you have to own a No. 87 Sidney Crosby jersey if you live in Pittsburgh. I have seen no fewer than 20 in the last hour — and this was merely making the 100 yard walk from my hotel to the arena.

Yes, I’ve seen some Malkins as well, but I’m pretty sure those are just for casual Fridays.

I’m already back at the Igloo since the nap was..actually not much of a nap at all. This is why I’d never make it as an NHL player (and I’d love to say this is the only reason): I can’t nap. The entire league is like Pavlov’s dogs– as Jason Strudwick once put it best — but if I get 20 minutes it’s a miracle.

So it will have to be a caffeine-heavy sort of night, although my guess is I won’t be struggling to stay awake regardless.

Meanwhile, a quick thought on the series:

While I rarely question “Carpie’s knowledge on hockey”:http://rangers.lohudblogs.com/2008/04/25/rangers-in-seven/, I’m going to stick with the conventional wisdom that says if the Rangers win this series, they’ll have to do it by closing out the Penguins at the Garden in Game 6. Game 7 back here wouldn’t be impossible — but you have to think that’s asking a lot.

Not that I’m looking too far ahead.

More in a bit…

    I think Larry Brooks picked the Rangers cause he is hoping he is wrong again.
