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…

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…

141 Rangers-Senators Game 7 in review

So we go from one nation’s capital to the other. (See previous post for the whole Conference Semifinals schedule — and p.s. to NBC, it’s not the Stanley Cup semifinals, OK?). Thoughts: 1) That was one great Game 7. Seriously, I thought ya boys played a great game, as I…

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…

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…

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…

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…
