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…

506 Game 4: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Haven’t said this much this year, but I don’t even know where to begin. It was going to take a monumental effort to beat Pittsburgh, a much better team, in this series. The way the Rangers played in Game 4, they wouldn’t have beaten anybody. I thought a…

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…

809 Game 3: Penguins at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 3. Penguins at Rangers. This is game No. 6 in nine days for the Rangers. In no other sport would this be allowed to happen. Just a complete injustice to the athletes and for the quality and integrity of the playoffs for the fans The Rangers have won…
