941 It’s Go Time! … Game 3: Capitals at Rangers

A little history lesson, which means not much: The Rangers have been down 0-2 in a best-of-seven series 19 times (and 0-2 in a best-of-five once) and have only come back to win one of those series, in 1996 vs. Montreal. In those 20 instances, the Rangers were swept eight…

341 Finish or be finished for the Rangers

The quick update: Ryane Clowe (probable concussion) and Marc Staal (eye) were both on the ice for an optional morning skate. Not sure if either will play in Game 3 tonight, but I imagine both want to. Carl Hagelin, who went leg-on-leg with Alex Ovechkin early in Game 2 and…

447 John Tortorella post-practice interview (audio)

The news, in case you still don’t follow me on twitter, is that Ryane Clowe took part in a full practice but doesn’t know if he’ll play Game 3. The only Ranger who didn’t skate was Carl Hagelin, who went leg-on-leg with Alex Ovechkin in Game 2, but played the…

Happy Cinco De Mayo. Well, your boys are sure in a hole now, and even if it’s one out of which it would be possible to dig, it seems miles deeper because of their inability to cobble together even one legitimate goal in two-plus games in this series, against a…

916 It’s Go Time! … Game 2: Rangers at Capitals

Truth is, this isn’t an actual “Must Win.” Plenty of teams have come back from 0-2, especially if returning home 0-2, and certainly against better teams than Washington and better goalies than Braden Holtby. That said, though, this is a mammoth game for the Rangers because they proved in Game…

389 Game 1: Rangers-Capitals in review

Down 1-0 in a series isn’t the end of the world ever, at all. I fully expect this series to be 1-1 after two, 2-2 after four, only because most series are that way, and you know what we saw last night? We saw that these teams are pretty even.…

Game 1. Rangers at Capitals. Ya boys finally end their league-imposed playoff lockout with Game 1, and their fourth meeting in five years with the Caps. The Capitals ended their season 11-1-1. The Rangers ended their season 10-3-1. Neither team played a very difficult schedule down the stretch. As you…
