On this day, there are two types of people: The Irish, and those who wish they were.
Speaking of which, we’ve been blessed with a little bit of the Luck O’ the Irish in Dave Maloney. I had to listen to the game on radio last night since my cable/phone/internet company’s (hint: same one that owns your favorite team) wires are still in the street.
And I knew it all along, but this confirmed that having Maloney be your eyes for a hockey game is really an enjoyable experience. He’s one of the smartest analysts in the biz, and honest. Great combination, and too rare in TV/radio.
Plus, on a night when the game’s on Versus, turning off the TV sound and turning on the radio is never a bad idea … if only the Rangers could get to a radio station that could be heard farther away than, say, the place where they practice.
Last night was a terrible loss because of how costly it was. Here the teams were really bunched up, and on a night when the Bruins won the Rangers lost to one of the teams within reach, thus dropping further behind both. It’s not too late, but they will need to win four of five or something like that very soon. Otherwise it will be too late.
Just wondering if those who didn’t want to trade Olli Jokinen at the deadline still think it would be wise for the Rangers to re-sign him July 1. Because I sure thought he should be traded, sure think he will not be re-signed, and sure think he has made that decision a lot easier for the Rangers lately.
