796 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Devils Game 2. I fully expect the Devils to be much, much, much better tonight, and obviously more desperate. And it will be up to the Rangers to be much, much, much better and try to match that desperation. But as I’ve said, I expect this series to be 1-1…

Here’s the story by Josh Thomson, 26, in today’s Journal News and on LoHud.com: By Josh Thomson, 26 NEW YORK — Like every new pairing or line combination, tethering Ryan McDonagh to Dan Girardi required a leap of faith. John Tortorella only inserted McDonagh alongside Girardi on the Rangers’ top…

Hey, folks. I’m in for Carp. Just a few quick updates from today’s skate at the Garden: • Much of the discussion with John Tortorella, Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi focused on the team’s willingness to block shots. It toyed with the Devils in Game 1 and has obviously been…

322 Rangers-Devils Game 1 in review

Thoughts: 1) Ya boys sure do stick with it, don’t they? And at 0-0 in the lockerroom after being pretty much pinned in the second, they sure must have felt that they would win this game. And then they did. Not surprised. 2) Dan (Block Ness Monster) Girardi had a…

Don’t mind the clanking during the Henrik Lundqvist press conference. They were cleaning up the Garden for Game 2. Pretty sure the Knicks aren’t playing tomorrow. Lundqvist and Mike Rupp talked about Lundqvist stealing tonight’s 3-0 win, especially during a poor second period by the rest of the team. Lundqvist…

185 Rangers-Capitals Game 7 in review

Happy Mother’s Day! Thoughts: 1) I am almost without speech because I don’t know what to say. Other than that was a fabulously hard-played hockey game, the kind you’d really hope to get in a Game 7. The Rangers were really good from the start, and to the finish. In…
