214 Rangers-Senators Game 4 in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, there goes my Rangers in 5 prediction. Back to Kanata Monday. Yee-freakin-hah! 2) This has been an odd series, IMO, in that I thought Ottawa’s best game start to finish was Game 3, a game the Senators lost, and one of those many, many games this season…

1239 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Senators Game 4. We expect the Rangers will use the same lineup, meaning Chris Kreider plays in Carl Hagelin’s spot. Daniel Alfredsson is very doubtful after a setback with his concussion issues. Matt Carkner expects to play after serving his one-game suspension for jumping Brian Boyle in Game 2. I…

18 Some series notes

Courtesy of me: * Through three games, the Rangers have not trailed at any point except at the end of the overtime in Game 2. They had scored first, obviously, in all three games, led for 96:45 and been tied for 84:32 in the series. * Henrik Lundqvist’s 39-save shutout…

The news: Daniel Alfredsson did not skate, and Paul MacLean said there was no change in his condition, so you’d assume he will not play in Game 4 tonight. Again, it’s playoffs, so never say never. MacLean would not divulge his lineup, but Matt Carkner, back from his one-game suspension…

First the big news of the day: Daniel Alfredsson had a “setback” according to the Senators, and did not skate today. So, though you take everything with a grain of salt in the playoffs, and never rule out anything, it doesn’t look as if he’ll be available for Game 4.…

Sorry, there were some logistical situations in this arena, so I didn’t have a chance to talk to a lot of players. I did get this remark from Henrik Lundqvist on the save Stu Bickel made. Lundqvist said he lost the puck for a moment and added, “That was a…

1016 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Senators Game 3. Live from Kanata, Ontario. We await word on A) whether Daniel Alfredsson will play tonight despite suffering another concussion in Game 2, from an elbow that got Carl Hagelin suspended for three games and B) who will replace Hagelin in the Rangers lineup. We may not know…

410 Tortorella post-morning skate

Morning skates are dull. I already knew that, but it’s been a while (since the Bryan Trottier regime) since I attended one on the road. The big news? Well, Daniel Alfredsson said he did suffer a concussion, and the Senators are not ruling out that he will play in Game…

513 Carl Hagelin suspended 3 games for elbowing; Carkner gets 1

The NHL and Brendan Shanahan have suspended the Rangers’ Carl Hagelin for three playoff games for his elbow that injured Ottawa’s Daniel Alfredsson in Game 2 Saturday night. Which, in my opinion, is extremely excessive given some of the crap that has gone unpunished, or has been met with couch-cushion-change…

Carl Hagelin had his hearing with the NHL today and probably faces a suspension. Daniel Alfredsson is reportedly feeling better and will be re-evaluated tomorrow … which could be part gamesmanship: “Let’s see how many games Hagelin gets before we say Alfredsson’s OK.” Or it could be the reality of…

349 Rangers-Senators Game 2 in review

Thoughts: 1) Matt Carkner won’t be suspended, but how do the officials allow a guy to just jump somebody and throw that many punches and get away with it. I know, the NHL’s belief is that the five-minute power play is more than enough punishment. Ridiculous. But he does have…

The word on Ryan McDonagh is he got hit in the onions, according to John Tortorella. So he’s OK. So is Ryan Callahan, who appeared to take one off the collarbone. Walked in late on Paul MacLean’s presser, so I have only a portion of that. Brian Boyle would not…
