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…

Game 1. Rangers at Canadiens. Hey, if you want to look at the positive side, the Rangers were unbeaten in regulation in Montreal this season (1-0-1). Yeah, this building is something of a House of Horrors for the Rangers, who had lost eight in a row there before Cam…

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…
