Greetings from Gate 18 at the Jet Blue terminal at JFK where—no lie—a guy in a Mario Lemieux jersey just claimed a seat right next to a guy in Adam Graves sweater.
And this is to say nothing of Sidney Crosby looking on from a few feet away.
If my flight is delayed, it may be because of some “slashing at 36,000 feet”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqvxQcnZy2Y
Meanwhile, as if the Rangers aren’t already kicking themselves “in falling behind 3-1 to the Penguins”:http://www.lohud.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080504/SPORTS01/805040421/-1/SPORTS, it might sting even worse knowing the “Flyers are awaiting in the conference finals”:http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=236692&lid=headline&lpos=topStory_nhl.
Philly is obviously doing something right, otherwise it wouldn’t have waltzed all over the Canadiens. But I can’t imagine they’d have either the Rangers or the Penguins trembling. Plus, whoever wins this series is assured of home ice in the next round.
More from Pittsburgh…
