New York Rangers
203 More post-game interviews

Carp has passed along some of the Rangers already, but all the duplicate players are different sound bites. Marc Staal and Daniel Girardi both talk about the unlikelihood of them scoring. Staal scored his first goal in 30 games and just the third of his playoff career. For Girardi, it…

1193 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Senators Game 7. Don’t really have much more to say. Win and play Washington. Lose and it’s over. Brian Boyle (concussion) remains out; Ryan Callahan (finger) will play. Ottawa’s Zenon Konopka and Matt Carkner are questionable, but I would guess they’ll play. ************************************************** Rangers’ all-time Game 7s (home teams have…

New York Rangers
179 Post-practice interviews on the eve of Game 7

So we’re getting closer and closer to dropping the puck on the Garden’s first Game 7 in 18 years. The Rangers held a full practice today in Greenburgh, but skated without both Ryan Callahan (finger) and Brian Boyle (concussion). Boyle was to be expected. There’s been no further update on…

New York Rangers
69 Callahan joins Boyle as practice no-shows

Practice started less than a half hour ago, but there’s already some news to report. Brian Boyle (concussion) is out as expected, but joining him off the ice for today’s skate is Ryan Callahan. The captain injured his finger in Game 6 blocking a shot. He returned and finished the…

23 Lundqvist named a Vezina finalist

From the NHL:   LUNDQVIST, QUICK AND RINNE NAMED VEZINA TROPHY FINALISTS NEW YORK (April 25, 2012) — Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers, Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings and Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators are the three finalists for the 2011-12 Vezina Trophy, which is…

104 Getting set for Game 7

Gonna try something … a special edition Game 7 Live Chat from the Garden Thursday afternoon. It’s going to have to be on the late side, like 2:30 or 3 p.m., I think. Still working on the logistics. I’ll be sure to let youse know as soon as I figure…

New York Rangers
352 Tortorella on Game 7: “My thought is to win it”

Carp’s in transit home from Ottawa, with a layover in the city that brought you last night’s mystifying call on Ottawa’s second goal. I’m here in his stead, although John Tortorella was pretty short in today’s conference call. The coach had “no comment” on Milan Michalek’s kick of Dan Girardi…

301 Rangers-Senators Game 6 in review

Thoughts: 1) Yeah, it’s great to be at the game. But sometimes when you’re at the game, you’re writing on deadline and blogging and tweeting and getting e-mails and text messages from the office, and looking up teams’ all-time Game 7 records (Rangers 3-5, but 3-0 at home and 3-1…

155 Post-game interviews

Henrik Lundqvist was really ticked off about the 3-2 goal … he’ll be getting fined $2500, no doubt, but he can afford it. I asked Brandon Prust if he was trying to light a spark or if he felt it was something to be done when he fought Chris Neil…

1396 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Senators Game 6. Must-win. This one really is, guys. Must-win. Or else this is the final “It’s Go Time!” of 2011-12. From snowy Kanata, Ontario … The Rangers have overcome a 3-2 series deficit once in their history … the famous 1994 “We will win” Game 6 guarantee by Mark…

328 Post-morning skate interviews

Some twidiot started a stupid wildfire that Henrik Lundqvist is sick, with IVs in his arms, etc. NOT TRUE, OK? Daniel Alfredsson goes back into the lineup for Ottawa, and Carl Hagelin — who served his three games for the elbow that injured Alfredsson also returns. Chris Neil, however, doesn’t…

208 Rangers at Senators Game 6 tonight

In case you missed it, the NHL made this a 7 p.m. start for TV. But don’t expect it to actually start until 7:14 or so. At least that’s what they’re saying up here on Canadian TV. Just saying. Lot at stake, eh? Going to the morning skate, will have…
