128 Rangers-Stars in review

This was the lead to my story in The Journal News and on LoHud.com about last night’s game: Get ready, hockey fans. The NHL is going to shove more nights like this down your throats with realignment. More non-conference games, more games with zero playoff implications. Less passion. Quieter arenas.…

John Tortorella and Brad Richards both noted the lack of passion in this game. Tortorella said the call against Hagelin should have been a non-call, and said he told Hagelin “to do it again.” Henrik Lundqvist said he’s OK after that shot off the collarbone and that it shouldn’t affect…

23 Live from MSG … for what that’s worth

No pre-gamer with John Tortorella because he addressed the unwashed masses after the morning skate today. This is standard procedure. It’s always one or the other. So no new news, really. Same lineup tonight, which means Sean Avery is prucha’d (unleash the blog traffic) while Erik Christensen gets a sweater…

219 NHL wimps out on Downie

As I predicted, the NHL didn’t have the onions to discipline Tampa Bay’s Steve Downie for leaving the bench to join — and escalate — an altercation with the Rangers. To me, it’s clear as day that Downie sat on the boards during the whole Artem Anisimov-Vinny Lecavalier incident Thursday,…

Not going to get all wrapped up in who did what on a lopsided scoresheet, though I’m sure you all enjoyed the heck out of it, and you should have. Instead, how about numbers?: 17-6-4, second best record in the improving East and fewest regulation losses in the NHL; 8-2-2…
