Courtesy of the NYR: NEW YORK RANGERS POST-GAME NOTES Eastern Conference Semifinals, Game 2 Madison Square Garden – New York, NY (Series tied 1-1) Team Notes: –        The Rangers were defeated by the Washington Capitals, 3-2, tonight at Madison Square Garden in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series. …

24 Post-game interviews

Nothing much here, except that Henrik Lundqvist had a decent explanation for his turnover against Chimera … he was at the edge of the trapezoid and couldn’t play the puck until it came to him. John Tortorella: [audio:] Henrik Lundqvist: [audio:] Marc Staal: [audio:] Ryan Callahan: [audio:]

791 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Capitals Game 2. I’m speculating, or taking an educated guess here, that Brian Boyle will play. Actually, it’s a little bit more than speculation or a guess. Unless Boyle isn’t feeling well this evening, or during or after warmups. That would mean that Steve Eminger comes out … unless he…

285 Post-practice interviews

The news: Brian Boyle skated during an optional practice, and said he felt better. Brandon Dubinsky did not skate and is on crutches, which doesn’t necessarily mean anything in terms of the severity of his injury. Remember that Ryan Callahan was on crutches between games when he was playing with…

133 Rangers-Capitals Game 1 in review

Thoughts: 1) I don’t know why I always feel this way, maybe because I’ve seen so many series go this way, but I still expect it to be 1-1 after two games. 2) Game 1 probably didn’t seem as close as it really was, but it was. The Capitals didn’t…

1087 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Capitals Game 1. Here we go again. The predictions contest is now closed. No more entries, please. No idea who’s playing or who isn’t. Have to wait until warmups and still may not know until just prior to gametime. I imagine Stu Bickel would move up to the wing and…

82 Coaches’ pre-game interviews

Your boy Torts did a quick one, gave out no info, was away from the podium in 12 seconds, or 19 seconds from the time I started to the time I stopped recording. John Tortorella: [audio:] Dale Hunter: [audio:]

88 Rangers-Capitals matchups

FORWARDS: This is obviously where the Capitals are most dangerous, and most confusing. Alex Ovechkin is coming off what is seen as a bad year (yet he scored 38 goals). He was benched at times in the Boston series. But he loves playing against the Rangers, especially at MSG, and…

82 Post-practice interviews

The news: Brian Boyle practiced, but there’s no way of knowing if he will return for Game 1 or Game 2 or at all in this series. Depends on how he feels after his first post-concussion skate, and tomorrow, and as we’ve seen, going forward. Brandon Dubinsky, who injured an…

141 Rangers-Senators Game 7 in review

So we go from one nation’s capital to the other. (See previous post for the whole Conference Semifinals schedule — and p.s. to NBC, it’s not the Stanley Cup semifinals, OK?). Thoughts: 1) That was one great Game 7. Seriously, I thought ya boys played a great game, as I…
