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…

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…

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…

536 Game 1: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Not declaring anything yet. But if the Rangers can go into that building against that team, not have a 60-minute effort, and still come out of there with the win, well, maybe they’re going to be fine after all in this series. Because during this game, when they…

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…
