The Game 7 matchup between the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals was a smash hit for NBCSN, drawing a 2.3 overnight rating on Wednesday. That 2.3 is the third-best non-Stanley Cup Final overnight ever for the network, which is pretty ridiculous given that we’re only in the second round of the playoffs *and* that the game overlapped with Game 5 of Wizards-Hawks on TNT. Excluding...

Brooks Orpik crushed Dan Boyle in Game 7 between the Capitals and Rangers. Boyle entered the zone fairly low and Orpik was there to deliver a crunching check. At first, this looked like a bad hit by Orpik, but the replay clearly proved that Orpik never extended his elbow and didn’t leave his skates to make contact. There was plenty of contact to Boyle’s head, but he placed himself...
