HBO’s 24/7 series for the NHL Winter Classic rolled along last night with the inside look at the Rangers ugly sweater Christmas party. The highlight was obviously this reindeer 3-way sweater worn by defenseman Michael Del Zotto, who’s just 21-years-old. We keep hearing NY & Philly bloggers raving about this show because there are lots of f-bombs and reindeer three-ways. Finally, people giving a f*ck about the NHL. It’s a miracle! Forecast for the Classic – 54 & sunny!

Michael Del Zotto Deserves Credit

I know, not something you expected to hear from me in a million years.  But with the way 21-year-old defenseman Michael Del Zotto has recently been playing, he's made it impossible not to recognize his tremendous efforts out on the ice every night. And when I say every night, I literally mean "every night". Del Zotto has registered points in four of his last five...

The Reemergence of Michael Del Zotto

Our good friend Patrick Hoffman of PowerScout Hockey takes a look at the reemergence of New York Rangers defensemen Michael Del Zotto.  In 34 games this season, the 21-year-old Rangers’ defenseman has 4 goals and 17 assists for 21 points.

Rangers Do Little Things to Win

Larry Brooks at the New York Post has this quote from Michael Del Zotto on why the Rangers have been so successful this season..."Obviously we have some skill, but we do the little things to win games," said Michael Del Zotto.

Rangers ticked over ‘sucker punch’ on Michael Del Zotto

SUNRISE, Fla. -- When Michael Del Zotto’s stick ended up getting into the face of Tomas Kopecky with 10 seconds left in last night’s 4-1 Rangers’ win, it looked like a hard hockey play. It was certainly a crosscheck, and a high one at that, but a hockey...

Hockey Player’s Ugly X-Mas Sweater Features A Reindeer Threesome (Video)

HBO’s 24/7 series has had many great moments already this season as it follows the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers as they prepare for the Winter Classic, but in my estimation, the appearance in Episode 3 of the above sweater, worn by Rangers defenseman Michael DelZotto at the team’s “Ugly Sweater” holiday party, has [...]

Video: Kopecky suckers Rangers’ Del Zotto; Rupp responds

If you thought the New York Rangers' Friday night tilt with the Florida Panthers would be little more than a breezy tuneup for the Winter Classic, you thought wrong. While the Rangers would indeed open up a three-goal lead early and coast to a 4-1 victory, the game was certainly not without incident. Tensions erupted with the Panthers' net empty late in the third period,...
