Here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today (Associated Press photo): By Rick Carpiniello WASHINGTON — When these playoffs began, the Rangers were a mediocre, inconsistent sixth seed. When their first round was two games old, they looked exactly like what they had been for 48 games during… Read More →
Almost forgot that the second round starts tonight. We can’t do another contest with only four series in play … too much bookkeeping, especially since ya boys are going to have me running around. I’m still interested to see your picks. Here are mine: EASTERN: Bruins over Rangers in 7…. Read More →

Live from Washington, D.C., here is my preview of tonight’s Rangers-Capitals Game 7. To me, despite all the historical numbers—which really mean squat—this game is a coin toss, as you will see.
OK. So for the third time in four playoff series, and in the span of 13 months, your Rangers are headed to another heart-attack Game 7 for you. Take out the Pepto or the adult beverage or whatever helps you get through these games. Thoughts: 1) I think I told… Read More →
