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…

69 Callahan joins Boyle as practice no-shows

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…

104 Getting set for Game 7

Gonna try something … a special edition Game 7 Live Chat from the Garden Thursday afternoon. It’s going to have to be on the late side, like 2:30 or 3 p.m., I think. Still working on the logistics. I’ll be sure to let youse know as soon as I figure…

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…

301 Rangers-Senators Game 6 in review

Thoughts: 1) Yeah, it’s great to be at the game. But sometimes when you’re at the game, you’re writing on deadline and blogging and tweeting and getting e-mails and text messages from the office, and looking up teams’ all-time Game 7 records (Rangers 3-5, but 3-0 at home and 3-1…

155 Post-game interviews

Henrik Lundqvist was really ticked off about the 3-2 goal … he’ll be getting fined $2500, no doubt, but he can afford it. I asked Brandon Prust if he was trying to light a spark or if he felt it was something to be done when he fought Chris Neil…

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:

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…

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…
