179 Post-practice interviews on the eve of Game 7

So we’re getting closer and closer to dropping the puck on the Garden’s first Game 7 in 18 years. The Rangers held a full practice today in Greenburgh, but skated without both Ryan Callahan (finger) and Brian Boyle (concussion). Boyle was to be expected. There’s been no further update on…

301 Rangers-Senators Game 6 in review

Thoughts: 1) Yeah, it’s great to be at the game. But sometimes when you’re at the game, you’re writing on deadline and blogging and tweeting and getting e-mails and text messages from the office, and looking up teams’ all-time Game 7 records (Rangers 3-5, but 3-0 at home and 3-1…

Henrik Lundqvist was really ticked off about the 3-2 goal … he’ll be getting fined $2500, no doubt, but he can afford it. I asked Brandon Prust if he was trying to light a spark or if he felt it was something to be done when he fought Chris Neil…

328 Post-morning skate interviews

Some twidiot started a stupid wildfire that Henrik Lundqvist is sick, with IVs in his arms, etc. NOT TRUE, OK? Daniel Alfredsson goes back into the lineup for Ottawa, and Carl Hagelin — who served his three games for the elbow that injured Alfredsson also returns. Chris Neil, however, doesn’t…

By now you’ve heard that Brian Boyle has a concussion and is out, presumably for the series, or at least Game 6. John Tortorella compared it to the Raffi Torres hit that drew a 25-game suspension earlier today. Not sure if it was that bad, but there’s also no doubt…

214 Rangers-Senators Game 4 in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, there goes my Rangers in 5 prediction. Back to Kanata Monday. Yee-freakin-hah! 2) This has been an odd series, IMO, in that I thought Ottawa’s best game start to finish was Game 3, a game the Senators lost, and one of those many, many games this season…

307 Post-practice interviews

First the big news of the day: Daniel Alfredsson had a “setback” according to the Senators, and did not skate today. So, though you take everything with a grain of salt in the playoffs, and never rule out anything, it doesn’t look as if he’ll be available for Game 4.…

410 Tortorella post-morning skate

Morning skates are dull. I already knew that, but it’s been a while (since the Bryan Trottier regime) since I attended one on the road. The big news? Well, Daniel Alfredsson said he did suffer a concussion, and the Senators are not ruling out that he will play in Game…

Carl Hagelin had his hearing with the NHL today and probably faces a suspension. Daniel Alfredsson is reportedly feeling better and will be re-evaluated tomorrow … which could be part gamesmanship: “Let’s see how many games Hagelin gets before we say Alfredsson’s OK.” Or it could be the reality of…

349 Rangers-Senators Game 2 in review

Thoughts: 1) Matt Carkner won’t be suspended, but how do the officials allow a guy to just jump somebody and throw that many punches and get away with it. I know, the NHL’s belief is that the five-minute power play is more than enough punishment. Ridiculous. But he does have…

The word on Ryan McDonagh is he got hit in the onions, according to John Tortorella. So he’s OK. So is Ryan Callahan, who appeared to take one off the collarbone. Walked in late on Paul MacLean’s presser, so I have only a portion of that. Brian Boyle would not…

333 Rangers-Senators Game 1 in review

Thoughts: 1) Oh, Captain. Ryan Callahan set a tone early, as usual, found a way to score an uglier-than-hell goal — and he’s made that an art form — and helped will his team to victory. I know, that’s a bit dramatic, because he sure wasn’t alone. You’d have a…

525 Rangers-Senators matchups … as I see ’em

************************************************* FORWARDS: Ottawa’s known as a skill and finesse team, and that is certainly true of its first line. Jason Spezza scored 34-50-84, Milan Michalek had 35-25-60, and captain Daniel Alfredsson (who has scored more points — 1,082 —  than any active player who hasn’t won the Stanley Cup,…

First the news … Ryan Callahan (personal reasons) and Marian Gaborik (flu) did not practice. Not a big deal. And Chris Kreider, as of this moment, hasn’t been signed … not that we know, anyway. Might happen today. Might not. Remember, he’s past the point of getting any money for…

289 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, the ending and the post-game sure saved me, because I had no idea how I was going to fill out an entire review on this game. 2) This is why some people hate John Tortorella, and this is also why his players love him. That was an…
