Devils lose third straight in Windy City

By at 27 March, 2009, 10:07 pm

Losing one in a row is a blip on the radar screen, two an annoyance but three means trouble’s on the horizon.  Yes, the Devils got a point out of their 3-2 OT loss in Chicago but really with the schedule ahead and the fact that the team had three days off beforehand, this was a game […]

Larry Brooks needs to get over himself

By at 27 March, 2009, 9:17 am

Apparently, Larry Brooks thinks he’s entitled to answers every time when the Rangers lay an egg as they did last night dropping a valuable point to Atlanta in the shootout.
The NY Post obnoxious beat writer probably thinks he invented hockey with the way he sometimes carries himself. Mr. Brooks couldn’t understand why new no-nonsense coach […]

Tortorella: “I Thought We Sucked”

By at 26 March, 2009, 10:05 pm

Sometimes, few words are needed to describe a bad loss which was precisely what transpired at Phillips Arena where the Rangers blew a three-goal lead falling to Ilya Kovalchuk and the Thrashers 5-4 in a shootout.
Ranger coach John Tortorella to MSG troll John Giannone:

“I thought we sucked. Right on through the game. We were fortunate […]

Total Randomness

By at 26 March, 2009, 5:29 pm

The Rangers are in Atlanta looking for another victory closer to a fourth consecutive postseason. But that’s not really what’s on my mind.
Today kinda sucked for me but sometimes, it’s like that. Here are a few quick random musings floating around my brain:
1.Cujo’s performance in relief of Martin Gerber against the Caps was utterly amazing. […]

Sabres win clinches playoff berth for Devils

By at 25 March, 2009, 8:46 pm

On a night the Devils didn’t play, they still clinched a playoff berth after Buffalo’s 5-3 win over Florida ensured a 12th straight postseason for New Jersey and kept the Sabres’ own playoff hopes on life support.  Normally a postseason berth would be barely worth a mention around these parts, and for this year’s team in particular bigger things […]

Nothing Wild about Ranger win

By at 24 March, 2009, 10:23 pm

Two points are two points. At this stage of the season, you take ‘em anyway you can get them. With tonight’s Garden clash featuring two of the league’s lowest scoring teams, there didn’t figure to be a ton of offense.
Precisely how it played out as the Rangers used goals from Nikolai Zherdev and Scott Gomez […]

Rangers host Wild minus Rozsival

By at 24 March, 2009, 3:28 pm

It’s been a pretty busy schedule lately for the Rangers, who play their third game in four nights later- all at home when the Wild come to town. They’ll look to bounceback from a disappointing 2-1 loss the other night to red hot Ottawa.
The Blueshirts blew a chance to move into a tie with Pittsburgh. […]

Lighthouse Meeting – Thursday night at the Marriott – be there

By at 24 March, 2009, 9:41 am

Unfortunately, I can not – due to work, but if you can be there – please do.
This should be interesting to hear about the T.O.H. issue – and an good news that may come up.
So – if you can make it – be there for me – and let me know your feelings about what […]

Road trip proves too rocky for Devils

By at 23 March, 2009, 7:47 pm

After yesterday’s 4-1 loss in Boston where the Devils gave up three PP goals, coach Brent Sutter warned of hockey karma and how particularly bad penalties usually came back to bite you.  Apparently his team didn’t listen as more hideous penalties tonight led to another three power play goals against in a 4-2 defeat at […]

While sitting on the bus….

By at 23 March, 2009, 7:12 am

I just thought I would type a little…
Jackman – glad he is signed for another season. He brings such a great amount of grit and tenacity to the game. He plays every shift like it is his last. Whether it is a check, a fight, or even blocking a shot – you […]
