487 Five-ring circus (updated)

All this talk about this being the last of the NHL’s participation in the Olympics has caused mixed feelings for me. Because of the professionals in the Games, we can’t see another Miracle On Ice, as much as NBC’s newbies want to try and fabricate one this year. There can’t…

192 Please allow me to reintroduce myself

Hi Boneheads! I’m back in action. (Good morning, Sally!). Before we talk about what’s going on in Vancouver (or Wancouver, as Esa Tikkanen said last week) I owe a big, big, big thank-you to Laurel, who did a magnificent job (not surprised by that, but still thrilled by it). I’m…

283 It’s Miller Time

Yes, cheap, easy headline, but true nonetheless. Today we’re talking NHL-level hockey. I think if the prime minster of Canada went on air tonight to say the country was seceding to Russia, nobody would turn the channel up north. It’s old news that USA is being declared the underdog —…

264 Sports philosophy 101, per AO (evening update 5)

So, how’s everyone feeling about meeting up with Crosby on Sunday? I love how in this recap of last night’s near miss against Switzerland, they call the shootout a skills competition. And those Slovaks! Maybe they purposely scheduled back-to-back games after all? …And sometimes it rains, right AO? Here’s his…

Good morning Sally and all! Here’s your game line-up for today, featuring two of your New York Rangers. Should have been three, but Gabby’s still sidelined, now for three games as per Gross. I feel bad he’s missing the Olympics, but not so bad if he’s properly healed by the…

First some notes: Michael Del Zotto was in the pressbox. I got a chance to ask him about his laceration. He said he’d seen doctors today and that he’s sure he will be fine by the time the season resumes. Marian Gaborik will go to Vancouver. His laceration was better…

520 It’s go time! (updated)

No chocolate kisses today. This could be more like the St. Valentine’s Day massacre … remember how ugly it got last time Tampa was in town — Voros and Konopka fighting 10 seconds into the game, the Rangers stomping over the Lightning 8-2, Tampa Bay taking exception and Malone bloodying…

332 Hostility in the air (updated)

Last night was one of those 2-1 losses where it’s not enough to say, “Well, if they could have scored another goal it would have been a good game.” It was not a good game. It was a dreadful defensive game. It was a woeful offensive game. It obviously was…
