I wasn’t up on the weekend hockey stuff, what with all the baseball … But are youse all aware of the sand allegations by the Flys at the Bell Centre? Jacques Martin this morning said there was a complete investigation done and that the allegations are a complete fabrication.

Hey, sorry so late again. The three Yankees-Mets games knocked the heck out of me—traffic jams on the Whitestone every night after midnight, getting home between 1 and 2 a.m., getting to bed at 3. So I slept in today. Also, as we get down to the final eight or... Read More →
Still no photos!!!??? WTB? Are you guys mad at me because I’ve been doing the LoHud Yankees blog this weekend? By the way, I may have mentioned this before: Byfuglien=monster.
Sorry for the late post, but apparently most of youse who attended the festivities last night are just crawling out of bed anyway. I can’t imagine there’s bigger news than Laurel meeting Avery. Did that really happen? But I do have big news. The T-shirt, photo right. Our awesomest Sally... Read More →
Former Ranger Mark Hardy is in a heap of trouble. Here’s a breaking story. This hurts me because I always liked the guy—and I’m not jumping to conclusions or declaring him guilty—but this goes to show that you never, never know. Awful. By the way, Hardy is the L.A. Kings... Read More →
Morning kids. I’ve got nothing to say and no time to say it … Got to beat the Friday traffic to Citi Field in a bit. So, for those going to the Boneheadpalooza, have fun! DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT DRIVING IF YOU DRINK (or driving on your iPhone). Some... Read More →
I’m picturing Petr Nedved coming over from his native Czech to Canada for the World Juniors and defecting, hiding in Canada and never going back, becoming a Canadian citizen. I don’t want to make light of that, because what Nedved did was extremely courageous and serious. But I can’t help... Read More →
The way these playoffs have unfolded so far, we’d be foolish to put anybody in the next round based on two games, right? And, as distasteful as it might be to see that piece of carcillo, plus Hartnell and the Flys’ ninth-string goalie play for the Cup, and as much... Read More →
Got this from USA Hockey: U.S. Men’s National Team Downs Italy, 3-2, in Shootout at 2010 IIHF World Men’s Championship COLOGNE, Germany – T.J. Oshie (Warroad, Minn./St. Louis Blues/Univ. of North Dakota) scored twice in the shootout, including the decisive goal in the seventh round, to lift the U.S. Men’s... Read More →
I mean that in a literal sense. What happened? I saw the last two minutes of Chicago-San Jose, and not a second of Philly-Montreal. So I went to Hockey Central on Versus, based on my TV listings, and there was some guy riding a bull or killing an animal, or... Read More →
Got this from USA Hockey: U.S. Men’s National Team Earns 4-0 Shutout of France at 2010 IIHF World Men’s Championship COLOGNE, Germany – Nick Foligno (Buffalo, N.Y./Ottawa Senators) scored twice and Brandon Dubinsky (Anchorage, Alaska/New York Rangers) added a goal and two assists to help the U.S. Men’s National Team...

Gotta tell ya, this is tremendously tremendous. Just that it’s historical. And hysterical. What are the ironic chances that a Game 7 will go exactly as an entire series goes: Down 0-3, then four straight goals, making it down 0-3, then four straight wins for the Flys? Though the coverage... Read More →
OK, so Mike Richter caused some queasiness among Rangers fans when he appeared in Flyers owner Ed Snider’s box after Game 6 the other night. And it sparked a little discussion on the Rangers’ goalie (the only one to win a Cup in the last 70 years, we might add).... Read More →
The Leastern Conference Final will feature the No. 8 seed, and either the No. 7 or No. 6. And if it turns out to be Philly and Montreal, or 7 vs. 8, remember that the Flys got in on that skills competition point, and that Bettman Bonus Point got them... Read More →
Jim Barry and John Scuderi. You have no idea who those guys are, right? Well, just to paint the picture, yesterday I made two terrible errors in my initial post. Sloppy, lazy, dumb mistakes. They happen. We’re all human, even the Blogfather. Especially the Blogfather. But I wouldn’t even be... Read More →
