88 Rangers-Capitals matchups

FORWARDS: This is obviously where the Capitals are most dangerous, and most confusing. Alex Ovechkin is coming off what is seen as a bad year (yet he scored 38 goals). He was benched at times in the Boston series. But he loves playing against the Rangers, especially at MSG, and…

82 Post-practice interviews

The news: Brian Boyle practiced, but there’s no way of knowing if he will return for Game 1 or Game 2 or at all in this series. Depends on how he feels after his first post-concussion skate, and tomorrow, and as we’ve seen, going forward. Brandon Dubinsky, who injured an…

141 Rangers-Senators Game 7 in review

So we go from one nation’s capital to the other. (See previous post for the whole Conference Semifinals schedule — and p.s. to NBC, it’s not the Stanley Cup semifinals, OK?). Thoughts: 1) That was one great Game 7. Seriously, I thought ya boys played a great game, as I…

203 More post-game interviews

Carp has passed along some of the Rangers already, but all the duplicate players are different sound bites. Marc Staal and Daniel Girardi both talk about the unlikelihood of them scoring. Staal scored his first goal in 30 games and just the third of his playoff career. For Girardi, it…

1193 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Senators Game 7. Don’t really have much more to say. Win and play Washington. Lose and it’s over. Brian Boyle (concussion) remains out; Ryan Callahan (finger) will play. Ottawa’s Zenon Konopka and Matt Carkner are questionable, but I would guess they’ll play. ************************************************** Rangers’ all-time Game 7s (home teams have…

179 Post-practice interviews on the eve of Game 7

So we’re getting closer and closer to dropping the puck on the Garden’s first Game 7 in 18 years. The Rangers held a full practice today in Greenburgh, but skated without both Ryan Callahan (finger) and Brian Boyle (concussion). Boyle was to be expected. There’s been no further update on…

Practice started less than a half hour ago, but there’s already some news to report. Brian Boyle (concussion) is out as expected, but joining him off the ice for today’s skate is Ryan Callahan. The captain injured his finger in Game 6 blocking a shot. He returned and finished the…

352 Tortorella on Game 7: “My thought is to win it”

Carp’s in transit home from Ottawa, with a layover in the city that brought you last night’s mystifying call on Ottawa’s second goal. I’m here in his stead, although John Tortorella was pretty short in today’s conference call. The coach had “no comment” on Milan Michalek’s kick of Dan Girardi…
