36 Post-game interviews

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…

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.…

Sorry, there were some logistical situations in this arena, so I didn’t have a chance to talk to a lot of players. I did get this remark from Henrik Lundqvist on the save Stu Bickel made. Lundqvist said he lost the puck for a moment and added, “That was a…

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…

Hockey
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,…

Happy Easter. In case you fell asleep, Vancouver won the Presidents’ Trophy by beating Edmonton. Big whoop. These are the first-round matchups, with the schedules to be announced today at 1 p.m. Since it’s a holiday, I doubt I’ll be interested at that hour, so youse will have to rely…

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…

92 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) Things got awfully simple thanks to Philly yesterday. Would have been more simple, obviously, if the Rangers had been able to finish things off. So they go to the final three games — at Philly tomorrow, at Pitt Thursday, home against Washington Saturday — needing a point, or…

383 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) So now it’s 50 wins, and all they need is to go 2-2 to tie the ’93-94 team’s franchise record of 52. That’s secondary. Their magic number on Pittsburgh is three. That’s any combination of points the Rangers get or Pittsburgh fails to get that equals three. Simpler:…
