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…

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…

Hockey
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…

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…
