46 Martin St. Louis: Making a forced deal work out

Here’s my story from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Martin St. Louis said that he was hoping for the best but expecting the worst in his return to Tampa as a Ranger Wednesday night. The emotion was multi-fold that of, for example, Ryan Callahan’s return to the Garden as an ex-Ranger…

Click here for a photo gallery from last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) I sure wish this could be all about the first 65 minutes of that hockey game. But it can’t because of the bizarro ending, which was nobody’s fault, but very unfortunate. Fact is, the correct call was made…

92 Captain Ryan McDonagh: The obvious choice

Here’s my column from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – The choice had been pretty obvious since, well, since the Rangers’ captaincy went vacant with the trade of Ryan Callahan last March.
