1613 NHL free-agency day … It’s Go Time!

Here’s my column from The Journal News and lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello In pretty much any other year, the Rangers would probably be overpaying, or attempting to overpay Paul Stastny or some other free agent when the market opens Tuesday at noon. But this isn’t any other year. This is…

205 Game 5: Rangers-Kings in review

We’ll have some more chats, for sure. And we’re going to have a lot of reaction the next several days, then through breakup day, the buyout period, the draft (do they have any picks?) and of course July 1. Gonna be a short summer. Thoughts: 1) Happy Anniversary? June 14,…

193 Game 3: Rangers-Kings in review

This is subject to change, and subject to the blog server not crashing, but we’re planning to do another Live Stanley Cup Final Chat today at noon. Or maybe we’ll call it, Talking You Down. Be there. Thoughts: 1) This review is quick and easy. The Los Angeles Kings are…

352 Game 2: Rangers-Kings in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m going to start out with that one single play. I understand, maybe the Kings come back anyway, maybe they don’t and there’s no way to know. It sure started the comeback that did happen, though. But we’ve been saying all year long how these freakin’ inconsistent calls…

1208 Game 2: Rangers at Kings … It’s Go Time!

Game 2. Rangers at Kings. First of all … NOT a must-win. Big, very important game, yes, and going down 0-2 will be extremely difficult against this L.A. team … but NOT a must-win. Some stats: Teams winning Game 2 of the Final have gone on to win the…

1094 Game 1: Rangers at Kings … It’s Go Time!

Game 1. Rangers at Kings. For the first time in 20 years, ya boys will play a Stanley Cup Final game tonight. They haven’t played since May 29, when they eliminated Montreal. The Kings last played Sunday, the OT win in Chicago punching their ticket to the Final. They…

351 Moore, St. Louis storylines make this Cup run special

Here are my stories from The Journal News and Lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Great teams usually have something special among them. Especially hockey teams. If player 20 doesn’t do his job, it might not matter what player 1 does. And when it’s special, when there’s a bond, there often are…

508 Game 6: Rangers-Canadiens in review

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…

324 John Moore suspended two games by NHL

And the clown show that is NHL Player Safety continues. Two identical hits, one ruled a head shot, one not. One player with a history, one with none. Same penalties. Though reports are now that Dale Weise did indeed suffer a concussion on the John Moore hit in Game 5.…

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…
