Hey, I’m the mysterious Jane who Carp was mentioning. I guess we’ll all be formally introduced during the chat later today. I just wrapped up my first season with the Jets and if you want to see a little more about me you can check out the Jets Journal.
I wanted to add a little audio of last night, to give a sense of what it was like to be in the Garden last night when Adam Graves spoke. I’ve covered a lot of events, and the kind of bond Graves and Rangers fans have, you don’t see that much.
Here, Graves thanks the fans.
After the emotion of the ceremony, the loss was hard on the current players, who are struggling to score. “It’s frustrating to lose a shootout as a goalie, you want to come up big,” said goalie Henrik Lundqvist.
“Tonight you want to have a great game, you want to win, you want to entertain the crowd. It seemed like the crowd never got into the game, just the last minute. But we tried, we tried really hard. It’s just tough for us right now to get the puck in the net.”
Here’s what Lundqvist sees from his end.
Sam Borden and Carp are debating the retired numbers issue in New York, over at the Faceoff blog.
And finally, here’s Carp’s Adam Graves ceremony column from today’s Journal News and LoHud.com.
While we were off doing the video chat, Renney was reportedly skating the Rangers into the ground (for all you who want him to be a little ticked off, we hear he was). And Anisimov was sent back to Hartford. If he’s not going to play in Dallas, that’s not a bad move, get him a bunch of minutes in a few AHL games … as long as he comes back.
