Blue Seat Blogs:
First, I hope that everyone who reads this blog and all of your families are safe. Hurricane Sandy did a number on the tri-state area, and it was by far the worst storm we have ever encountered. I had a close call myself, as a tree that is (was) three feet from my bedroom window snapped, and the top half came crashing down, missing my apartment by about five feet. There was also another tree that was leaning, but did not go down. Both trees have been removed thankfully.
Now back to some semblance of Ranger hockey: Carl Hagelin had a bit of a scare last night, as he took a hit to the shoulder and was removed from the game. It was a precautionary move, but like Rick Nash before him, his shoulder injury is day-to-day.
Additionally, MSG is planning on airing more KHL games on the MSG network as the lockout continues. There will be a total of eight games aired on MSG throughout the month of November:
11/2 – Dynamo Moscow vs Spartak: 1PM (Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Alexei Yashin)
11/4 – Dynamo Riga vs Dynamo Minsk: 3PM and 10PM
11/14 – Dynamo Minsk vs SKA St. Petersburg: 1PM and 9PM
11/18 – Lokomotiv vs CSKA Moscow: 3PM and 10PM (Artem Anisimov)
11/20 – Dynamo Moscow vs Vityaz: 1PM (Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom)
11/26 – Dynamo Moscow vs Atlant: 1PM and 9PM (Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom)
11/29 – Dynamo Riga vs Dynamo Moscow: 2PM and 9PM (Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom)
11/30 – Avangard vs Barys: 1PM (Ryan McDonagh)

It’s fair to say that when Kyle Jean tried out for the Rangers almost every Ranger fan didn’t have an idea about the young try-out nor were expectations particularly high. After all, try outs come and go in their dozens and rarely does one stick with a club let alone make some noise. So its fair to say that despite a promising pre-season its come as a surprise to many that Jean...

Halloween, or "Halloween" as it's called in Sweden, is a day away. But Henrik Lundqvist is already getting his costume on.
