A weird play took place in the third period of Tuesday night's Game 3 between the New York Rangers and Boston Bruins when two high sticks occurred simultaneously, but neither one of them was called a penalty.
Rangers defenseman Steve Eminger lost control of his stick as he tried to tap it away from Bruins center Tyler Seguin as he skated into the Rangers zone. At the same time, Seguin tried to shoot it through Eminger and left winger Chris Krieder, who came back to help. The end result was a double high-stick, with Eminger hitting Seguin in the face and Seguin hitting Krieder in the face. Play was stopped as Krieder and Seguin needed time to recover, but both players appeared to be OK.
You would think at least one of them would have been called a penalty. Terrible job by the officials. How do they miss that?

COREY SIPKIN/NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
The Rangers are facing a steep climb to get back into this series, but it all starts with one game. As Kevin said yesterday, one shift at a time. If you win each shift, you’ll win the game, and that should be the priority for the Rangers. The biggest news is that Brad Richards is a healthy scratch and Anton Stralman is out tonight with an undisclosed...
From ESPN InsiderAs soon as the news broke that forward Brad Richards was pegged to be a healthy scratch for Game 4, talk of pending compliance buyout resumed with fresh energy. And not without reasonable justification. If the 33-year-old center isn't going to be part of the New York Rangers' long-term plans, he very well may be bought out this summer. Carrying an annual...
While it's really not all that surprising considering his performance and lack of ice time in the playoffs, I'm still in shock to read that Brad Richards will be a healthy scratch in Game 4 tonight.
According to Katie Strang at ESPN.com, John Tortorella called Richards at home this morning to break the news to him.
Richards admitted he was surprised and disappointed...
Bruins fans, look away.
After winning the first three games of their Eastern Conference semifinal series, the B’s AHL affiliate in Providence proceeded to drop four straight to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (Pittsburgh’s farm club), who completed the comeback with a 5-0 shellacking of the P-Bruins on their home ice Wednesday night.
It marked just the third time in AHL history...
TONIGHT’S GAME: The Rangers will face-off against the Boston Bruins tonight at Madison Square Garden (7:00 p.m. — TV: CNBC; Radio: ESPN 98.7), in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series. The Blueshirts trail in the series, 3-0, following a 2-1 loss in Game 3 on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. The loss ended New York’s nine-game winning [...]
During Tuesday night’s game, I noticed the Bruins were finding an easy way to exploit the Rangers aggressive 2-1-2 forecheck early in the first period. The Rangers just seemed a step behind making contact with the puck carrier. While I always prefer a 2-1-2 forecheck and I am glad it is the system Torts has installed, I couldn’t help but think an adjustment needed to be made...
New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella announced that Brad Richards will be a healthy scratch for tonight's Game 4 against the Boston Bruins.
The Rangers will also play defenseman Roman Hamrlik in place of the injured Anton Stralman.
Richards has been struggling throughout the playoffs and has been playing on the fourth line. Richards played a postseason-low 8:10 in Game...
The Bruins’ fourth line is a fourth line in that there are three lines that usually play more minutes every night than they do. But to those who watch the B’s on a regular basis, it’s clear that the “fourth line” is much more than that.
While the contributions of Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton don’t always stand out on the stat sheet at the end of...
Tonight the Boston Bruins have a chance to sweep the Rangers in the Eastern Conference Semi Finals. The Bruins have been the better team despite what Lundqvist saying that the Bruins have had "lucky bounces" and that's why the Bruins are up 3-0 in the series. The Bruins have played great most of the series. Whether it's because the Rangers are just that bad or...
The Bruins’ fourth line has been called many things. The players are probably OK with them all, as long as you can call them “winners.”
You can on Tuesday night after a gritty, gutsy performance for Boston pushed the B’s to a 3-0 series lead over the New York Rangers. After the dramatic, come-from-behind victory, NESN’s Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley were rinkside at Madison...
There is still a lot of playoff hockey to play (any Bruins fan will assure you that the team’s second-round series with the Rangers is not close to being over), but it’s not too early to take a look at who some of Boston’s top performers have been so far.
The short list obviously has to include goalie Tuukka Rask, who leads all netminders with seven wins in the postseason and...
Brad Richards says he is not playing tonight. He said Tortorella called him this morning to tell him.

The Officiating has been poor in the Stanley Cup Playoffs this year. This is an obvious high stick by Rangers forward Ryan Callahan on Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara that should drawn a double minor. Four officials on the ice and no one saw it. The Officials did manage to call a weak penalty on Jaromir Jagr that was much less serious than this.
