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,…

188 Eastern Conference final … theater of the absurd

Here’s my column on the clown show that the Rangers-Canadiens series became during the five days in which there was just one game. From The Journal News and Lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Pitch a tent over the Rangers-Montreal Canadiens Eastern Conference final, and cue up the calliope music. The circus…

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…

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.…

1107 Game 1: Rangers at Canadiens … It’s Go Time!

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…

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…
