247 Game 4: Rangers-Canadiens in review

Click here to read Josh Thomson, 26’s story about Martin St. Louis’ overtime heroics. Thoughts: 1) Well, now I guess you can say that Alain Vigneault is better than his predecessor, since he’s gotten one game farther … that’s sarcasm, of course. Vigneault’s done a terrific job with this team,…

971 Game 3: Canadiens at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 3. Canadiens at Rangers. Ya boys have an enormous opportunity tonight as they come home with a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Final. The Rangers enter on a five-game winning streak, four of those on the road. They are just 4-3 at home in these playoffs, but…

227 Game 1: Rangers-Canadiens in review

If you haven’t seen it, check out the photo gallery one post down. Let me know what you think. Thoughts: 1) Ghosts, ghouls, goblins? Get outta here. Gone, gone, gone. That can no longer be a factor in this series. Now it’s just hockey. Now Henrik Lundqvist is Henrik Lundqvist.…

749 Game 7: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Big as the building. Pretty much the same core group of guys, five Game 7 wins in the last seven series, 10-2 in elimination games. This is a team that never, in 16 opportunities, had come back from 3-1 to win a series, never, in four tries, had…

290 Game 6: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Gotta admit, going against my much ballyhooed belief that there is no carryover from game to game in a playoff series (there isn’t), I thought the Rangers were done like dinner after Game 4. I mean, they just stunk it up in a huge game. And, boy, has…

Game review
278 Game 5: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) The only way it would have been better for the Rangers would have been if big-hearted, broken-hearted Martin St. Louis had scored. But what a day. What an emotional day. And night. It’s not over for St. Louis, either. He’s got to be mentally fried, headed back to…

Game review
594 Game 3: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) First of all, a little tempest was set off in Pittsburgh by a couple of shots Marc Staal took on Sidney Crosby (click here to see them), both of which should have probably been penalties, but as you know, our fine NHL referees are more than likely to…

Game review
422 Game 2: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Are you really surprised that this series is 1-1? Seriously? I’m not at all. I’m never, ever surprised that any series is 1-1 after two. Heck, maybe you should be surprised it isn’t 2-0 Penguins. 2) So let’s get this streak thing right out of the way. Ya…

Game review
601 Game 6: Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, the best part for you guys and for the Rangers is that they don’t lead the series. Because since 2009, while they’ve been lousy when leading a series — a record 12 straight losses with the series lead — they’ve been pretty darn good when tied or…
