272 Rangers-Capitals Game 3 in review

Thoughts: 1) Holy shishkebob. I’d been covering this team since 1978, and had never seen one of these triple-overtimes. Saw them with the Islanders, saw them with the Devils. Never with the Rangers. And in my lifetime, there had only been one — the Pete Stemkowski game in 1971 –…

The news from D.C.: Brandon Dubinsky is on the trip, but did not skate. Mats Zuccarello continued to skate before practice, but left the ice when the morning skate began.

Nothing much here, except that Henrik Lundqvist had a decent explanation for his turnover against Chimera … he was at the edge of the trapezoid and couldn’t play the puck until it came to him. John Tortorella: Henrik Lundqvist: Marc Staal: Ryan Callahan:

791 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Capitals Game 2. I’m speculating, or taking an educated guess here, that Brian Boyle will play. Actually, it’s a little bit more than speculation or a guess. Unless Boyle isn’t feeling well this evening, or during or after warmups. That would mean that Steve Eminger comes out … unless he…

The news: Brian Boyle skated during an optional practice, and said he felt better. Brandon Dubinsky did not skate and is on crutches, which doesn’t necessarily mean anything in terms of the severity of his injury. Remember that Ryan Callahan was on crutches between games when he was playing with…
