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…

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…

422 Game 2: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Are you really surprised that this series is 1-1? Seriously? I’m not at all. I’m never, ever surprised that any series is 1-1 after two. Heck, maybe you should be surprised it isn’t 2-0 Penguins. 2) So let’s get this streak thing right out of the way. Ya…

536 Game 1: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Not declaring anything yet. But if the Rangers can go into that building against that team, not have a 60-minute effort, and still come out of there with the win, well, maybe they’re going to be fine after all in this series. Because during this game, when they…

976 Game 1: Rangers at Penguins … It’s Go Time!

Game 1. Rangers at Penguins. Boy, I sure took a lot of shots for having the audacity to pick the Penguins, who finished 13 points ahead of the Rangers. Holy shishkebob! So I’m sure all of those who complained about my negativity aren’t going to creep out to the…
