129 Devils-Kings Game 5 in review

Thoughts: 1) I thought some of the Kings took some shortcuts they hadn’t been taking, and dodging hits they’d been absorbing, in Game 5. And Captain America Dustin Brown stunk in Game 5, including that lazy penalty. 2) Milk Carton Clarkson sure scores a lot of goals, or is responsible…

210 It’s Tee Time! It’s Go (Kings) Time!

Devils-Kings Game 5. Another must-win for Newark, with Stanley in the house again. In fact, I don’t believe Stan’s ever been in the Rock. Eighteen years ago tonight, another team up 3-1 in the Stanley Cup finals blew a chance to clinch in Game 5 and had to fly across…

By David Hes (Marfar)   We take you back to the last game of the regular season for — the NY Giants. They were to play the hated Cowboys for first place in the NFC East and a guaranteed spot in the playoffs. Days before that game, I told other passionate…

194 Devils-Kings Game 4 in review

Not going to go very long here because, well, I’m losing interest. Thoughts: 1) David (Milk Carton) Clarkson was spotted a few times. Nice play on the GWG by Adam Henrique, who kind of had to make a better shot than the one-foot putt the Rangers gave him at the…

168 It’s Tee Time! It’s Go (Kings) Time!

Devils-Kings Game 4 (if necessary). Stanley’s in the house tonight. Can the Devils even stay alive for a couple more nights? Can they avoid the dreaded handshake line? What these Kings have done is pretty remarkable, not even considering that they can/will be the first No. 8 seed to win…

The Winds of Change are About to Blow While there has been much debate during the past two weeks among we Ranger faithful on how to proceed into next year, there is also a unanimous sentiment ringing constant, loud and clear which is indisputable; we Boneheads are a proud group…

244 Devils-Kings Game 3 in review

Thoughts: 1) Game 4, if necessary … 2) The Devils power play might be worse than the Rangers power play, or at least it is when Kovalchuk isn’t scoring (or if he’s hurt, which he probably is). And the Devils’ penalty kill stinks, and has stunk all playoffs. 3) That…

454 It’s Tee Time! It’s Go (Kings) Time!

Devils-Kings Game 3. You guys know I don’t believe in must-win games until a loss sends you home. But this is pretty close to a must-win for the Devils, not to mention for NBC. The Kings have a woeful two losses at home — as opposed to zero on the…

332 Devils: fire in a hole

I know a lot of you guys are down in the dumps today over the Devils’ precarious position in the Stanley Cup finals. I can’t cheer you up. Sorry. No review today. I will say this though, and I mentioned it last night … everyone is making out the Devils’…

278 It’s Tee Time! It’s Go (Kings) Time!

Devils-Kings Game 2. Those were the two favorite titles suggested by you knuckleheads, who refused to allow me to use the usual header. I fully expect this series will be 1-1 after two games. Teams should be rested after that NBC-dictated extra travel day even though the series hasn’t traveled.…

263 Guest blogger Doug Lowenstein: Season in review

1. The pattern was set in Europe.  The Rangers were mostly out-skated in both games against LA and Anaheim, and the shot blocking persona came into sharp relief.  We were going to be a black and blue team.  But nothing over those first 10 games hinted at the team’s potential.…

368 Just a few quick thoughts on Game 1

1) How is the Dainius Zubrus elbow any different whatsoever than the Brandon Prust elbow? And does anybody want to bet the NHL won’t even look at it? 2) This was a game ya boys could have won. 3) Ilya Kovalchuk sure wasn’t Mr. Superstar in Game 1, and that…

As Torts would say, I’ve got balls. In the near future, I plan on some meetings with Mr. Titleist and Josh Thomson, 26, among others. But first we still have some things to clean up … I haven’t even tabulated the winners for our second-round predictions contest yet (sorry!). And…
