114 Post-practice interview: Tortorella

Two funny things. First, somebody’s phone went off during John Tortorella’s presser. That’s always good for a laugh. Then, after he was finished, he talked about the Super Bowl and laughed that Phil Simms “spent an hour” saying the blackout wouldn’t affect anybody and then all of a sudden there…

30 Post-practice interviews: Lundqvist, Callahan, Kreider

Ryan Callahan and Chris Kreider wore yellow no-contact jerseys at practice today. Callahan is still a while away from returning, Kreider probably will not play tomorrow at Newark, and he sounded like he didn’t want to say anything until he was/is told he is ready to return. Dan Girardi took…

743 It’s Go Time! … Super Bowl edition

OK, time for our annual Boneheads Super Bowl party! As I’ve told you, I’m having a really hard time with this game. Torn between rooting against that cretin and criminal Ray Lewis (and fearing the disgusting love-fest that will follow if he and Baltimore win) and rooting for Ray Rice…

440 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) There’s going to be a lot of obvious stuff said in the next bunch of paragraphs because there was nothing subtle here. It was very obvious. For example, the Rangers had the puck for a lot of this game, more than in any other game this season. Did…

784 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Wowzer. I don’t even know where to begin. That was just putrid. I thought there was a stretch there in the second period where the Rangers righted themselves a bit, and then they shot themselves in the skate with the Derek Stepan giveaway for a Sidney Crosby (who…
