8 Live Chat Thursday at noon … should be fun

We were going to do this anyway, but now it sure will be a lot more interesting. Live Chat Thursday at noon. Be there. Or else. I am posting three things I’ve just finished writing … a news story about the firing, a column, and a list of potential coaching…

1 John Tortorella break-up day video

Here’s the video of John  Tortorella addressing he Brad Richards situation. The entire presser is in the audio file below. I also took video of Richards’ interview with the press, but I am having all sorts of technical issues uploading it and I may not be able to get tech…

11 Break-up day interviews: Tortorella, Richards

Let’s start here because this was the big topic, obviously. Brad Richards knows he’s being bought out. He’s a smart guy and a pro. John Tortorella talked about Richards, but wouldn’t answer a question about whether his long-time friend would be back. The video is above, but this audio clip…

311 Game 5: Rangers-Bruins in review

A picture is worth a thousand words, and the picture right here, well, just wow. Look at the five Rangers around Henrik Lundqvist and Gregory Campbell, look at who they are in a must-win Game 5 of a second-round playoff series, and how nobody can prevent the fourth-line Boston center…

8 Post-practice interviews: Tortorella, Lundqvist

The video of the John Tortorella presser will be up shortly. He had some interesting things to say about Ryan McDonagh and Chris Kreider. Also, the news: Brad Richards skated with the Black Aces today. Chris Kreider, apparently still feeling that injury above his left eye, did not skate.

235 Game 4: Rangers-Bruins in review

Is it possible? Um. Probably not. But ya boys can sure make things interesting if they can somehow win Saturday evening in Boston. Like Derick Brassard said, “We’re looking forward to going to Boston. The pressure is on them. Toronto came back from 3-1 and it’s possible. We just want…

737 It’s Go Time! … Game 4: Bruins at Rangers

As you’ve seen/heard by now, Brad Richards is a healthy scratch tonight, and is certainly done as a Ranger (unless they somehow come back in this series, maybe?) … He will be bought out after the season, the Rangers paying him $24 million  over 14 years as a parting gift…

294 Game 3: Rangers-Bruins in review

Save your breath some of you, and stop praying that Darren Dreger’s speculation on the radio might be true. John Tortorella is not getting fired in a 48-game season when two of his three best skaters played like garbage and the team won a playoff round and sure hasn’t quit;…

272 Game 2: Rangers-Bruins in review

Gotta tell you, I didn’t think the Rangers could do the 0-2 trick against Washington, so I’m not saying “no way,” but I really don’t get the feeling that this Boston team is going to lose four of five. I think these Bruins are better than Washington, play a style…

353 Game 1: Rangers-Bruins in review

Game 1 wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I expected it to be a little meaner, and I though the Bruins would have more surges, and I expected the Rangers to play more along the walls. Actually, I thought, the Rangers moved the puck pretty freely, didn’t forecheck…

78 Rangers-Bruins position-by-position matchups

From the Journal News and LoHud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – The Rangers and Bruins won’t need mirrors this week. They can just look at each other while they’re grinding out games in their first playoff series in 40 years. Here’s a look at the matchups: FORWARDS: The Bruins have…

584 Game 7: Rangers-Capitals in review

You guys who’ve been around since the GAG Line, or earlier, must be feeling pretty cool today, looking at the first Rangers-Bruins playoff series in 40 years. I know I do. I will say this, too, and I kinda touched on it when we were discussing good and bad matchups.…

472 Game 6: Rangers-Capitals in review

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…

303 Game 5: Rangers-Capitals in review

So I was going to try to write something witty to get youse off the ledges, or something about how this is not really over. Well, maybe I should go that way, because what this series has shown us, and pretty much all the other series have shown us, and…

317 Game 2: Capitals 1, Rangers 0 (OT) in review

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…
