Some thoughts: 1) Couldn’t help but wonder how much better this series might be if they played it in Chicago Stadium and the Spectrum. 2) I love both of those uniforms, the Blackhawks’ red and the Flyers’ white (Seinfeld reference: “My Blackhawks jacket, love my Blackhawks jacket.”). 3) That was...

Do we really care about the announcement of next Jan. 1’s Winter Classic? First of all, pretty much everybody is saying it’s going to be in Pitt’s Heinz Field, with the NHL’s darlings playing against each other? We know it isn’t the new Yankee Stadium, and thankfully (hopefully) the NHL... Read More →
Happy 16th anniversary Stephane. And Howie Rose. And Brian Leetch, who opened the scoring with one of the greatest goals he ever scored. First things first. The Rangers, starting today, are doing profiles on the top 20 prospects in the organization — one each week day not including the Memorial... Read More →

What do you think? I still have two copies of John Halligan’s book “100 Ranger Greats” … I think I do, anyway. I’ll check. If so, those will be the prizes. I’m thinking of having two separate contests. I have two ideas rattling around my brain, and I’m just trying... Read More →

No matter which team wins the Stanley Cup, one of the four longest current droughts between Stanley Cups will end. Which will mean the Islanders’ 27-year drought moves up the ladder to fourth longest. Of course, it also means the Rangers’ streak of 16 years takes a step up, too.... Read More →

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... 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 →
