… as in Ocho Cinco, since Chad Johnson is starting in goal. Or as in Zero, which is the number of all the goals the Rangers have scored in the last two games, overtime and shootout included. Or as the number of goals Johnson might have to allow in order to get a win. Or, as we said earlier, as in JD’s old No. 00 jersey.
(Seinfeld reference: CoCo wore it, too … As in Ooh-ooh, ah-ah).
Kotalik is prucha’d and Brashear is out “nicked” which means Voros and Lisin are off the prucha list, and somehow Higgins continues to escape it.
It’s an 8 p.m. start, locally on WPIX.
By the way, WPIX loaded Thursday’s game with promos for tonight’s game thusly: “Same fire, same desire.” Boy, you guys better hope not.
A reader asked today, and another had asked me via email following the video chat on Friday, why you guys are Boneheads. And I’ve been meaning to explain the term of endearment for our newer folks. So here it is:
When Sam Weinman left the blog last January — we’re coming up on that sad anniversary — a bunch of vulture blogs attempted to jump into the comments section and steal our audience (yeah, like that might happen). Anyway, one of them came on with this idea, and I paraphrase:
“Come to such-and-such blog, where you get all the same Rangers news and information, but without all the bonehead comments.”
To which I replied, “I like the boneheads.”
To which a lot of you guys replied, in a parade of comments, “I’m a bonehead.”
Kind of brings a tear to my eye.
