182 Happy Memorial Day!

And while you enjoy your holiday and your cookout, or whatever you’re doing — not to mention Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals — take a few minutes to remember what we’re celebrating today. Take a moment to remember and appreciate those who sacrificed so much for all of…

82 Gotta love Game 1

Some thoughts: 1) Couldn’t help but wonder how much better this series might be if they played it in Chicago Stadium and the Spectrum. 2) I love both of those uniforms, the Blackhawks’ red and the Flyers’ white (Seinfeld reference: “My Blackhawks jacket, love my Blackhawks jacket.”). 3) That was…

128 Finals finally!

Just got back from dinner and had to make a few calls. Thought you guys needed a new game post (we haven’t had a game in so long I forgot). The contest No. 1 is closed now. Contest No. 2, I believe, is also filled up. Thanks to ddebened for…

223 It’s Go Time!

Remember, pick one player. That’s it. You get one shot. Anybody who posts twice, or who picks more than one player, will be disqualified … or have his/her pick nullified and will have to pick again. This is it: The player who will score the Stanley Cup-winning goal. Once as…

192 Winter Classic buzz

Do we really care about the announcement of next Jan. 1’s Winter Classic? First of all, pretty much everybody is saying it’s going to be in Pitt’s Heinz Field, with the NHL’s darlings playing against each other? We know it isn’t the new Yankee Stadium, and thankfully (hopefully) the NHL…

163 Matteau, Matteau, Matteau!

Happy 16th anniversary Stephane. And Howie Rose. And Brian Leetch, who opened the scoring with one of the greatest goals he ever scored. First things first. The Rangers, starting today, are doing profiles on the top 20 prospects in the organization — one each week day not including the Memorial…

91 Cup finals contest(s) for Boneheads?

What do you think? I still have two copies of John Halligan’s book “100 Ranger Greats” … I think I do, anyway. I’ll check. If so, those will be the prizes. I’m thinking of having two separate contests. I have two ideas rattling around my brain, and I’m just trying…

128 Thought for a beautiful NY day

No matter which team wins the Stanley Cup, one of the four longest current droughts between Stanley Cups will end. Which will mean the Islanders’ 27-year drought moves up the ladder to fourth longest. Of course, it also means the Rangers’ streak of 16 years takes a step up, too.…

73 Sandy issues

I wasn’t up on the weekend hockey stuff, what with all the baseball … But are youse all aware of the sand allegations by the Flys at the Bell Centre? Jacques Martin this morning said there was a complete investigation done and that the allegations are a complete fabrication.

33 Good Monday morn… er, afternoon

Hey, sorry so late again. The three Yankees-Mets games knocked the heck out of me — traffic jams on the Whitestone every night after midnight, getting home between 1 and 2 a.m., getting to bed at 3. So I slept in today. Also, as we get down to the final…

116 Mark Hardy arrested

Former Ranger Mark Hardy is in a heap of trouble. Here’s a breaking story. This hurts me because I always liked the guy — and I’m not jumping to conclusions or declaring him guilty — but this goes to show that you never, never know. Awful. By the way, Hardy…

184 Defecting to NY

I’m picturing Petr Nedved coming over from his native Czech to Canada for the World Juniors and defecting, hiding in Canada and never going back, becoming a Canadian citizen. I don’t want to make light of that, because what Nedved did was extremely courageous and serious. But I can’t help…

109 Could it be, Chi-town vs. Philly?

The way these playoffs have unfolded so far, we’d be foolish to put anybody in the next round based on two games, right? And, as distasteful as it might be to see that piece of carcillo, plus Hartnell and the Flys’ ninth-string goalie play for the Cup, and as much…
