1016 It’s Go Time!

Rangers-Senators Game 3. Live from Kanata, Ontario. We await word on A) whether Daniel Alfredsson will play tonight despite suffering another concussion in Game 2, from an elbow that got Carl Hagelin suspended for three games and B) who will replace Hagelin in the Rangers lineup. We may not know…

410 Tortorella post-morning skate

Morning skates are dull. I already knew that, but it’s been a while (since the Bryan Trottier regime) since I attended one on the road. The big news? Well, Daniel Alfredsson said he did suffer a concussion, and the Senators are not ruling out that he will play in Game…

513 Carl Hagelin suspended 3 games for elbowing; Carkner gets 1

The NHL and Brendan Shanahan have suspended the Rangers’ Carl Hagelin for three playoff games for his elbow that injured Ottawa’s Daniel Alfredsson in Game 2 Saturday night. Which, in my opinion, is extremely excessive given some of the crap that has gone unpunished, or has been met with couch-cushion-change…

Carl Hagelin had his hearing with the NHL today and probably faces a suspension. Daniel Alfredsson is reportedly feeling better and will be re-evaluated tomorrow … which could be part gamesmanship: “Let’s see how many games Hagelin gets before we say Alfredsson’s OK.” Or it could be the reality of…

349 Rangers-Senators Game 2 in review

Thoughts: 1) Matt Carkner won’t be suspended, but how do the officials allow a guy to just jump somebody and throw that many punches and get away with it. I know, the NHL’s belief is that the five-minute power play is more than enough punishment. Ridiculous. But he does have…

The word on Ryan McDonagh is he got hit in the onions, according to John Tortorella. So he’s OK. So is Ryan Callahan, who appeared to take one off the collarbone. Walked in late on Paul MacLean’s presser, so I have only a portion of that. Brian Boyle would not…

Rangers-Senators Game 2. First and foremost, about our great friend Tony from AZ. He suffered a stroke Friday night and remains in town in a NYC hospital. His wife Rose from AZ e-mailed me, on Tony’s orders, to say “Go Big Blue!” and that he had gotten permission from doctors…

333 Rangers-Senators Game 1 in review

Thoughts: 1) Oh, Captain. Ryan Callahan set a tone early, as usual, found a way to score an uglier-than-hell goal — and he’s made that an art form — and helped will his team to victory. I know, that’s a bit dramatic, because he sure wasn’t alone. You’d have a…

Rangers-Senators Game 1. Here we go. The Rangers go with the same lineup they’ve been using, which means Chris Kreider is prucha’d for the first time in his career, along with John Scott and Jeff Woywitka. Henrik Lundqvist in goal (duh) against Craig Anderson. Ottawa’s Chris Neil is expected to…

70 Let the games begin

A few things first: As you saw last night, not only is it possible for lower seeds to steal Game 1 … it’s very common. Normally, the winner of Game 2 is the better barometer for who wins the series. But I’m not going to be your therapist tonight or…

Jason Spezza scored 34-50-84, Milan Michalek had 35-25-60, and captain Daniel Alfredsson (who has scored more points — 1,082 —  than any active player who hasn’t won the Stanley Cup,…
