870 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Capitals Game 5. Ya boys aren’t at “must-win” territory yet … especially since they’ve come back from 3-2 down once already in these playoffs. I expect they will play very well tonight, good enough to win. Does that mean victory? No idea. If I had to guess: Yes. For what…

326 Rangers-Capitals Game 4 in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not going into a gigantic rant about the Alex Ovechkin cheapshot on Dan Girardi because it’s a distraction and the Rangers don’t deserve a distraction with the way they played Game 4. … And I don’t want to call for a suspension because Brendan Shanahan and  the…

14 Post-game interviews

First this. As you saw, Alex Ovechkin claimed he was bracing himself to be hit, and that he hit Dan Girardi in the shoulder. OK. His coach — who has such a nice resume’ — backed him up, calling it “incidental contact” as both players, he said, were looking down.…

659 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Capitals Game 4. This is the first time in 73 years that the Rangers have played a game after one that lasted as long as 114:41. Ya boys are expected to dress the same lineup. I saw Stu Bickel getting loose, so I anticipate no changes. Nobody had anything to…

Before we get to Game 4, we have two winners of the first-round predictions contest (apologies for the delay). I found two entries with seven out of eight series correctly predicted. Headzo appears to be our winner, having correctly predicted seven series, including the Rangers. Our runnerup, tf, also predicted…

272 Rangers-Capitals Game 3 in review

Thoughts: 1) Holy shishkebob. I’d been covering this team since 1978, and had never seen one of these triple-overtimes. Saw them with the Islanders, saw them with the Devils. Never with the Rangers. And in my lifetime, there had only been one — the Pete Stemkowski game in 1971 –…

Rangers-Capitals Game 3. Then we get a nice little hockey vacation and a stupid matinee for Game 4. Thank you, NBC. I am not expecting any lineup changes for the Rangers tonight, though I supposed it’s possible that Steve Eminger goes in for Stu Bickel. I doubt it. Brandon Dubinsky…
