Don’t know which is the best part for the Rangers — going into the playoffs on a three-game winning streak? Scoring four goals? Scoring on the power play? Or finally beating a good team on the road?
Whatever, time to move on to Washington, starting Wednesday.
(ps, sorry about the assumption that Drury’s injury was a leg … I thought he limped off one time in the third period Thursday. They’re calling it “upper body” and MSG Network showed video of him being hit in the arm or hand by a shot.).
We’ll update the minute the NHL releases the entire first-round schedule.
This from Andrew Gross’s blog (he’s in Philly).
This is unofficial, and it includes an afternoon game Saturday.
Game 1 – Wednesday at Washington
Game 2 – Saturday at Washington
Game 3 – April 20 at Madison Square Garden
Game 4 – April 22 at Madison Square Garden
Game 5 (if necessary) April 24 at Washington
Game 6 (if necessary) April 26 at Madison Square Garden
Game 7 (if necessary) April 28 at Washington
Steve Zipay’s blog confirmed that Saturday is a 1 p.m. NBC game.
It’s now four hours since the season ended and still no official playoff schedule has been announced. But we do know the Rangers will play the Capitals Wednesday in Game 1 (TSN lists it at 7 p.m.) and that Game 2 is Saturday at 1 p.m. on NBC.
I’m going to bed. Hopefully the NHL will have a full playoff schedule in the morning.
