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…

400 Post-practice interviews

A few quick items before the interviews: • Daniel Alfredsson skated for over an hour at the Senators’ optional practice in Ottawa today. It was the second straight day he skated, although this time someone was there to see it. “We’re encouraged and optimistic about Alfie,” Paul MacLean told NHL.com.…

70 No discipline expected for Chris Neil

Ottawa’s Chris Neil is not expected to face discipline for Saturday night’s open-ice hit on Brian Boyle. The NHL has not scheduled a hearing for Neil by this afternoon. Although the league has not released a decision, a hearing would likely have been scheduled by now if Neil were to…

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…

216 More post-game interviews

The star of the night was Ottawa’s Craig Anderson, who stopped all 41 Rangers’ shots in the 1-0 Game 5 win. Here’s Anderson, and perhaps the two scorers left most frustrated by tonight’s shutout loss: Craig Anderson: Brad Richards: Marian Gaborik: Marc Staal:

36 Post-game interviews

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…

107 Some pre-game stuff

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…
