During his post practice press conference today John Tortorella reported that Brian Boyle did not make the trip to Ottawa......not a surprise. Never a good idea to put a guy with a concussion on an airplane. Just ask the Mets.Steve Zipay at Newsday has this quote from Ryan Callahan this morning..."We've got to win this game. We don't want this season to end. If we play desperate hockey, we'll be okay."...wish they would have played desperate hockey Saturday night.Meanwhile, Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that Steve Eminger stayed on the ice late after practice making it likely that he is not playing.In an injury update, Jim Cerny notes that Mats Zuccarello is out of his cast. He broke his wrist on March 23 blocking a shot against the Sabres....if the Rangers can somehow get themselves into the second round Zucc maybe a possibility for them. Could use him big time on the power play.Finally, Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Swedish Elite Leag...

Replacing Boyle in the lineup

When Chris Neil took out Brian Boyle with a questionable hit on Saturday night, he took out the Rangers most effective forward. He took out their leading scorer, top defensive forward, and top penalty killer in this series. He took out the only player that has managed to get under the skin of the Senators. It’s a big blow to the Rangers, and not a player easily replaced. The best...

Video: Chris Kreider & Ryan McDonagh Talk After Game 6 Win

… Chris Kreider played a phenomenal game for a rookie in just his 4th game on the NHL surface. The role Kreider played in the 2nd and 3rd periods were huge for the New York Rangers. This kid really is the future of the organization.  Ryan McDonagh also played a lot better tonight and came [...]

Breaking down the goals from Game 6

For once the Rangers were able to make them pay. When I say them, I don’t just mean the Senators. I mean the refs. I mean Shanny. I mean Campbell. I mean anyone and everyone who has failed to do their job this postseason. The Rangers overcame it all for once and will have to do it one more time on Thursday in order to get to the next round. Anyway, on to the scoring… Sens go...

Video: Lundqvist, Prust & Richards Talk About Game 6

… seriously, have you EVER heard Henrik Lundqvist come out and say ANYTHING like this before? Absolutely not. So you know Henrik is totally pissed off over this.  He’s right, someone wanted Ottawa back in this game. Probably the same people who wanted Philadelphia back in the Winter Classic game as well. It’s a total [...]

No Callahan in Selke finalists; No Rangers in Lady Byng finalists

In what is no surprise to pretty much anyone, Ryan Callahan was not included as a finalist for the Selke Trophy for the NHL’s top defensive forward. The finalists are St. Louis’ David Backes, Boston’s Patrice Bergeron, and Detroit’s Pavel Datsyuk, who has won the award three of the past four years. Backes finished the season with a line of 20-34-54 while starting just 46...

Del Zotto to Be Suspended for Hit on Neil?

Last night late in the third period Michael Del Zotto caught Chris Neil with his head down behind the net......hope Del Zotto told Neil "that was for Boyle" after destroying him with that devastating hit....normally not a fan of a player getting injured, but I had a big ole smile on my face watching Neil lay there on the ice after being dropped like a sack of potatoes.And...

Video- Lundqvist’s Remarks Post-Game

Henrik Lundqvist was upset with the controversial late goal by the Senators last night and spoke about it post-game. I don’t know about you, but my feelings are the Rangers won the game, brush the goal off and move on. Instead, Lundqvist went in the opposite direction.

Boyle Has Concussion (No Discipline for Neil)

Update, 10:44 a.m.:#SNPlayoffs. #Sens Neil will not face any supplemental discipline for his hit on #Rangers Brian Boyle and will be in the line up for game 6— Nick Kypreos (@RealKyper) April 22, 2012 ...apparently the NHL not only favors star players when it comes to suspensions (see Shea Weber), it now includes players from Canadian teams. NHL once again bowing to pressure from...

Rangers Fans, Do You Have Any Superstitions?

One of my closest friends won’t ever let me forget how I (and two others) banned her from a Hartford Wolfpack playoff game in 2000. It was a deciding Game 5 in the first round, and we told Terry she wasn’t allowed to go to the game. You see, the Pack had yet to win [...]

Prust Alters Series With Bout Against Neil

Games 2 through 5 we watched as Chris Neil dominated the Rangers physically without a care in the world as John Tortorella inexplicably stapled Michael Rupp and Stu Bickel to the bench.Well Brandon Prust finally had enough and could have changed the course of the series by doing this with the Rangers down 1-0 in the first period... ...i don't care that Prust lost...

Photo Credit: NorthJersey.com With under a minute left in Game 6 of the New York Rangers- Ottawa Senators playoff series, Senators’ forward Chris Neil scored a goal, making it 3-2 Rangers while bringing the Senators within one goal.
