11 Game 3: Post-game quotes

Brandon Dubinsky: “We just battled in the corner there and we converged there and I just was able to get the puck to myself. I was trying to bring it hard to the net and I saw Danny coming in the back door. I just thought if I jammed, he’d…

858 It’s Go Time!

We’ve got a 3:21 p.m. puck drop. If this place isn’t rocking today, they should raze it. Eminger and Zuccarello are prucha’d. Not much else to say.

86 Bruce Boudreau pre-game

Bruce Boudreau: On the first goal, first period: “It probably is really important but we’ve been able to come back if they get it, and I’ve seen them come back, too. It’s nice to set the tone, but at the same time, if it’s in the first period, there’s a…

23 Tortorella pre-game

Not much news. Same lineup. Eminger and Zuccarello prucha’d. Quotes from the coach in a bit, and some from Bruce Boudreau as well. John Tortorella: “Same personnel. Emmy and Zucc will be out.” On whether the Capitals have taken runs at Staal: “Oh, well, I’d do it. That’s part of…

61 Game 3: Capitals at Rangers today

It’s a 3 p.m. NBC game, Edzos. I’m headed to MSG for the whole nine yards. Maybe some of those casual fans can put down their iPhones, stop ordering their chicken fingers and trying to catch flying T-shirts, and make  a little noise today? Or not. Until then, here are…

247 Tortorella post-practice

John Tortorella: “Going in today, I know that they don’t have any doubt. They’re fine there.  Today was just move the blood and get ready to play. It’s a quick turn here, playing a 3 o’clock game tomorrow and we go right back at it.” “We hope (the home crowd)…

70 Post-practice quotes

John Tortorella said he doesn’t anticipate lineup changes in terms of the 18 skaters … but that he’s contemplating his lines and his power-play personnel. If I don’t have time to transcribe his presser I’ll link to video from it. From a room with far, far too many empty lockers…

151 Capitals 2, Rangers 0: Game 2 in review

Two-nothing and two-nothing. Nothing being the important word. Are the Rangers done? No. Not yet. In the playoffs, what happened yesterday doesn’t matter one lick today, and we saw evidence of that in the first period of Game 2, after the Rangers lost in OT in Game 1. They were,…

855 It’s Go Time!

All those who wanted Sean Avery in the lineup get their wish (FYI, I suggested he should play after Game 1, too). Game 2. I don’t think much else needs to be said. So I won’t.

396 Game 2: Rangers at Capitals tonight

Happy Tax Day! The crooks. Some good stuff last night. I like it when guys fight during the playoffs (not the staged fights, or the message-sending in lopsided games). Somebody, years ago, decided “oooh, you can’t fight during the playoffs … you have to be disciplined.” It’s ridiculous, isn’t it?…

Wow. Pretty good Game 1. I’m sure you weren’t thrilled with the outcome, and sure you weren’t thrilled with the play that decided it. Thoughts: 1) I thought Marc Staal and Dan Girardi had some strong game, with loads of minutes, taking and doling out lots of punishment. Alex Ovechkin…

Been a while, huh? The sprint begins. Matt Gilroy is in on defense, Mats Zuccarello in up front. Sean Avery and Steve Eminger are  prucha’d. Henrik Lundqvist vs. rookie Michal Neuvirth.

246 Game day, and Happy Anniversary!

On April 13, 1940, Bryan Hextall scored at 2:07 of overtime to beat the Toronto Maple Leaves 3-2 and give the Rangers their third Stanley Cup. I don’t know how many they’ve won since then, but I’ll try to research it. ———————— Here’s my column on Henrik Lundqvist, from The…
