Here is my video preview of Game 1 of the Rangers-Bruins playoff series tonight.
From the Journal News and LoHud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – The Rangers and Bruins won’t need mirrors this week.

Thoughts: 1) We will have our first Live Playoff Chat of the series Thursday at 1 p.m. Be there. Or else. 2) Somebody mentioned to me about Mr. Jacobs, you know, the Bruins owner who was probably the single most responsible person for giving you fans the finger during his… Read More →

Here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today (Associated Press photo): By Rick Carpiniello WASHINGTON — When these playoffs began, the Rangers were a mediocre, inconsistent sixth seed. When their first round was two games old, they looked exactly like what they had been for 48 games during… Read More →
