104 Getting set for Game 7

Gonna try something … a special edition Game 7 Live Chat from the Garden Thursday afternoon. It’s going to have to be on the late side, like 2:30 or 3 p.m., I think. Still working on the logistics. I’ll be sure to let youse know as soon as I figure…

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…

155 Post-game interviews

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…

1396 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Senators Game 6. Must-win. This one really is, guys. Must-win. Or else this is the final “It’s Go Time!” of 2011-12. From snowy Kanata, Ontario … The Rangers have overcome a 3-2 series deficit once in their history … the famous 1994 “We will win” Game 6 guarantee by Mark…

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…

434 Rangers-Senators Game 5 in review

Thoughts: 1) On the Chris Neil assault on Brian Boyle … not only did he drive-by, blind-side, head-target him, but after Boyle went down, Neil gave him another shot in the back of the head. I don’t think John Tortorella was correct in saying it’s the same as Raffi Torres…

By now you’ve heard that Brian Boyle has a concussion and is out, presumably for the series, or at least Game 6. John Tortorella compared it to the Raffi Torres hit that drew a 25-game suspension earlier today. Not sure if it was that bad, but there’s also no doubt…

1031 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Senators Game 5. Expecting the same lineup for the Rangers, which means Henrik Lundqvist in goal (duh!). Carl Hagelin sits out the final game of his three-game suspension, so Chris Kreider plays in his place. Ottawa is expected to insert rookie Mark Stone, fresh out of juniors, into the lineup…

Been meaning to write about this all week but haven’t had time. There’s a new DVD out about the 1994 Rangers Cup, called “Road to Victory, the New York Rangers Story.” Here’s the info the promotional people sent me: Where were you on June 14th, 1994 when the New York…

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…
