654 The Capitals are in town … yeeesh

Not bad enough that the Caps haven’t lost in forever (11 straight wins), and they have that monster who loves to light it up at MSG, and all of a sudden Jose Three-or-More is Two-or-Fewer. The Rangers come in having gained just two out of the last possible 14 points,…

289 Now go to bed with no Kovalchuk

I saw a HS hockey game tonight where both teams scored three goals. Can you imagine? Three goals in a single game? And there was no skills competition at the end of the five-minute OT. And you know what? It was one of the best games I’ve seen this year.…

544 Homeward bound

One goal was the difference between a great trip — 2-1 and a big trade! — and a horrible trip — 1-2 and a terrible trade! Apparently. Anyway, as your NYR fly home today, do you realize the next four games look like this: Washington, Devils, Nashville, at Pittsburgh? Do…

103 It’s done

According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the Rangers-Flames trade has been finalized. As reported last night, it’s Jokinen and Prust for Kotalik and Higgins. The thing that kind of fascinates me is this: The Rangers are getting rid of a guy who was a total overpaid bust, and another guy…

148 Do you guys sleep?

I have nothing new for you, although I’m hearing that Jokinen is playing against Philly tonight. What in Holy Hell? You guys are just going nuts with the page views (and of course your clever, often hilarious comments) … on the first day of February, which was the first nutso…

644 Day after a win and a near-trade

Nothing new to report on the Flames-Rangers trade, still not done due to complications that arose Sunday. Canadian reports still have the Flames holding up the deal. And there is speculation that the deal stalled upon Calgary’s insistence that Christopher Higgins be in the trade (why wouldn’t the Rangers want…
