Click here to see Josh Thomson, 26’s story about the Rangers’ clincher last night. Click here to read my column, which was kind of stymied by deadline, on the Rangers reaching the Cup final. Thoughts: 1) “Alain,” the question began, “if somebody told you in October you’d be playing in…

1112 Game 6: Canadiens at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 6. Canadiens at Rangers. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe. Hope most of you make it through Game 6 tonight. As you are well aware, your team has a pretty nasty habit of losing games when leading a series. Of not playing particularly well until pushed to the brink. As you…

262 Game 5: Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Dan Girardi called it a gong show. That’s as good as I’ve got. The Canadiens won, so they can be happy about it, but that’s a hideous game. Two in a row, actually, but Game 5 worse than Game 4.  Ghastly. After Game 4, after all the talk…

Game 5. Rangers at Canadiens. Youse know what’s at stake. Been 20 years. And as you know, it’s the anniversary of the last time the Rangers had this opportunity — Matteau, Matteau, Matteau! Two teams have come back from 3-1 already this spring — the Rangers vs. Pittsburgh last…

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,…

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…

329 Game 2: Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Just please, please, please don’t expect that this is going to be easy. First of all, remember in ’96, the last time these teams played, Montreal won the first two at MSG, then the Rangers won four in a row, three in Montreal. Never saw that coming. But…

1059 Game 2: Rangers at Canadiens … It’s Go Time!

Game 2. Rangers at Canadiens. Big news out of Montreal today, where the Canadiens are saying goalie Carey Price is out for the series with that apparent knee injury he suffered in Game 1, when Chris Kreider slid into him. And of course there’s the usual idiocy and homerism…
