Post-practice stuff


I’m working on a story on Ruslan Fedotenko for The Journal News and tomorrow. So I don’t have a lot of the (mostly cliche) quotes from players today.

I’ll put up John Tortorella’s press conference shortly. He took the high road, but still managed a swipe at whiny Capitals coach Bryan Murray, er, I mean, Bruce Boudreau.

The news, as I’m sure you’ve seen, is that Derek Stepan is not one of the three finalists for the Calder Trophy … and in fact said that the three who made the final cut — Couture, Skinner and Grabner — would have been his three picks.

Bryan McCabe joined the moustache brigade, with an apparently artificially darkened Trevor “Village People” Gillies-style horseshoe on his face, the beard having been removed. Brandon Dubinsky’s is definitely darkened — somebody told me he didn’t bother following the directions on the box and so he got some on his skin. Brian Boyle, the founder of the Rangers playoff moustaches, said he was going for a “Captain Morgan” look.

  1. I’m not getting all Tiki over that goal. I didn’t think anything of it, and I still don’t, but it’s just odd that they release footage of the net cam, but they leave out that specific sequence.

    It doesn’t matter now, but I’m just curious.

  2. Just checking in. We have been talking about extra-curricular stuff for so long……

    Between Bruce and the ‘Staches we lost some focus!

  3. LOL! I knew Dublowsky darkened his stache. Funny!

    Everybody should go with the stache, in my opinion. It worked for Dublowsky in game 3, so who knows.

    Somebody hold Butt-Chin down, and shave him, and leave the stache! It’s our only hope!

  4. “he got some on his skin.”

    LOL You can see it in one of his interviews, I thought it was theatrical adhesive

  5. Doodie! Haha Daniel Plainview. Brilliant. I hope he is 70% as ruthless as Daniel Plainview.

  6. Ah…I didn’t realize they were different. I always thought what V.P. Gillies had was a Fu Manchu.

    Brooks’ live chat today was actually pretty good. The wrap is on the Post’s web site.

  8. onecupin71yearsand counting on

    I don’t like the long layoff .. it may kill the momentum and we’ll have a sloppy 4th game for both teams…nice move bettman
