67 Killing time before Game 7

Got nothing for you at the moment. This morning Brandon Dubinsky was walking around without his boot, but that doesn’t mean he’s close to returning. Mats Zuccarello’s not imminently close, either. So, as you kill time before Game 7 on this beautiful Mother’s Day Eve, I’ve got some reading material…

138 Capitals at Rangers Game 7 tonight

For the record, I expect that the Rangers will win tonight. Can’t guarantee it, because, well, guarantees are so stupid. I mean, if I’m wrong, what happens? So how is that a guarantee?

118 Some Game 7 info

Headed to the Rangers’ practice today as they return from their one-day respite. Will have some audio later on. We’re at that point in the playoffs now where there are nights with no hockey. Awful. Then NBC stretches it out an extra day. More awful. So we’re here to try…

213 Rangers-Capitals Game 6 in review

Thoughts: 1) During and after this game, I thought about a lot of stuff that didn’t completely have to do with the game. For instance, no matter how much we think we know, we don’t know. Example: Many of us thought Washington would be a much easier matchup that Ottawa.…

After nearly 60 minutes of regulation, Brad Richards and Carl Hagelin provided contributions that lifted the Rangers into OT. Neither was pretty, but the result was sweet nonetheless for their team.
