McIlrath Minutes from Boston Marathon Finish Line

We New Yorkers normally don't root for Bostonians, but after yesterday's horrific events at the Boston Marathon, I think it's safe to say that we're all praying for Bean Town right now.

For Blueshirt fans, it...

Rangers’ Carl Hagelin slashes the Flyers’ Brayden Schenn in the nuts (VIDEO)

YouTube The Rangers winger Carl Hagelin obviously doesn’t have much respect for Flyers forward Brayden Schenn.  Tuesday night, Hagelin gave Schenn a little “who’s your daddy?” slash to a region no man wants to get hit. Game officials either share Hagelin’s lack of respect for Schenn or were skating with their eyes closed because there was no penalty called on the play.
