138 Capitals at Rangers Game 7 tonight

For the record, I expect that the Rangers will win tonight. Can’t guarantee it, because, well, guarantees are so stupid. I mean, if I’m wrong, what happens? So how is that a guarantee? But I’m telling you, they’re going to win. ********************************************* Pre-game notes courtesy of the NYR: NEW YORK…

I’m sure you saw that Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan were elevated to a line with Ryan Callahan in practice today, with Brian Boyle being reunited with Brandon Prust (Artem Anisimov on the left) and Ruslan Fedotenko dropped to the John Mitchell-Mike Rupp line. FWIW. John Tortorella: Henrik Lundqvist: Ryan…

118 Some Game 7 info

Headed to the Rangers’ practice today as they return from their one-day respite. Will have some audio later on. We’re at that point in the playoffs now where there are nights with no hockey. Awful. Then NBC stretches it out an extra day. More awful. So we’re here to try…

213 Rangers-Capitals Game 6 in review

Thoughts: 1) During and after this game, I thought about a lot of stuff that didn’t completely have to do with the game. For instance, no matter how much we think we know, we don’t know. Example: Many of us thought Washington would be a much easier matchup that Ottawa.…

Rangers-Capitals Game 6. Imagine how different you’d be feeling if not for that last 7.6 seconds of Game 5. But ya boys now have a chance to close it out and move to the ECF and the Devils. Of course, we use the word “chance” lightly because this will be,…

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…

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.…
