186 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) I have maintained that the synchronized fights are kind of silly and stupid, and most of the time they are. So I guess I’m a hypocrite and an imbecile … though I have also said that it’s different in a big rivalry game, and it’s different when there’s…

Said, pretty much, that the last thing he’s thinking about is seedings and home-ice advantage in the playoffs (I completely agree, home-ice is meaningless). ****************************************** Since a lot of you have been discussing Chris Kreider today, here’s the…

First and foremost, thanks again to Carp for giving me the opportunity to take his place in the lineup for this game. There have been numerous occasions this season in which the Rangers goaltending has been the difference. Tonight, the tables were turned. Semyon Varlamov was a brick wall in…
