102 Snow and Sean, so no chat today

Let me try to explain. The football playoff game I was supposed to cover yesterday was postponed to today because that October snow storm left so many areas without power, so much snow on the fields, and forced so many schools to remain closed. So, I have to go to…

364 Sean Avery: New York Ranger again

Sean Avery, soon to be officially recalled after clearing re-entry waivers (in other words, none of the other 29 teams/coaches had any interest in him at 1/4 of his salary). Now, does he play Thursday, or do the Rangers go with their same lineup after their best game of the…

115 Rangers-Sharks in review

I don’t know which game was the Rangers’ second best of the season, but it wasn’t even close to this one. And not just because of the score … if they played the exact same game and, say, lost in a shootout, this still was their best of the year…

58 Post-game interviews

Some interesting stuff. Brandon Dubinsky and John Tortorella talking about Dubinsky’s progress the last couple of games, especially away from the puck; Tortorella talking about how hard it will be to change his lineup to make room for the guy who could be called up tomorrow, I forgot his name.…

692 It’s Go Time!

Game 10. Third of a six-game homestand. Last game, perhaps, without Sean Avery. First in the last seven against a non-Canadian team. Just full of big info here, right? Mike Rupp (knee) and Marc Staal (concussion symptoms) remain out. Artem Anisimov is OK after that hit by Zenon Konopka Saturday.…

82 Tortorella pre-game press conference

Here are the highlights about why the Rangers decided to re-call Sean Avery (or at least, put him on re-entry waivers). Will have audio in a few minutes right below this: John Tortorella: Why Avery now? “Rupper. Rupper has a lot to do with this. We’re concerned about this. So…

290 Start the countdown on Avery’s return

The Rangers, as expected, placed Sean Avery on re-entry waivers at noon today. That means any team in the NHL can claim him before noon tomorrow. Not likely. Just to clear it up, if Avery is claimed, the Rangers are stuck with his cap hit, whereas if he is in…

733 Rangers-Senators in review

Holy cow, what an ordeal getting home. Never thought 4-6 inches of snow could create such problems, but roads froze, trees fell, power went out. Yikes. October byfuglien 29th. Well, at least ya boys are still NHL-.500, even though they’ve won three and lost six. Thoughts: 1) Marian Gaborik=Beast. Bet…

717 It’s Go Time!

It’s Snow Time! WTB? Shouldn’t this stuff have been in Winnipeg last week? Game 9. Second of a six-game homestand. Sixth straight against Canada. Mike Rupp (knee) and of course Marc Staal (concussion symptoms) remain out. Probably the same lineup tonight, but with new lines. Yesterday, Erik Christensen and Wojtek…

55 Tortorella pre-game

First, he did not give out his lineup, or his lines, saying he wasn’t sure. (Andrew Gross loves when he says that, LOL). But he said it will probably be the same lineup as the home opener. He did say that Mike Rupp (knee) remains out. I asked him a…
