I Feel Like I’ve Been Dumped

I think it’s safe to say it’s been a rough week for Rangers fans. When Alec Martinez buried the Stanley Cup clinching double overtime goal along with the Blueshirts Friday night, I was in a state of shock. That feeling pretty much continued through Saturday. Father’s Day day gave me a much needed distraction, but Monday is when the real depression started to set in. I couldn’t...

Stanley Cup Final closes with decent Game 5 numbers

I have spent a couple of years yelling into the vacuum that is the internet that an Los Angeles-New York Stanley Cup Final would be fine, but not the game breaker that the National Hockey League — at least in the eyes of many media pundits — needs. Now, the two teams playing didn’t exactly hurt my point, but it turned out to be true. However, there’s something to be said...
