Live from Washington, D.C., here is my preview of tonight’s Rangers-Capitals Game 7. To me, despite all the historical numbers — which really mean squat — this game is a coin toss, as you will see.

Happy Mother’s Day! The Rangers attempt to come back from a 3-2 deficit for the third time in their history. They did so famously in the 1994 Eastern Conference Final against the Devils. They also did it last spring against Ottawa. In both of those, the Rangers were the No…. Read More →

I kept watching all the other playoff series going on and wondered why they all seemed so much more intense than these Rangers-Capitals games, why there was so much more nasty in those games, so much more tempo and hitting. Until Game 4. Welcome to the playoffs, Rangers and Capitals… Read More →
