Five on Three: March 25th - The Hamburglar

Hammond, Sens shocking the East and Kings making their usual late season push.

In this edition of Five on Three, Anthony Pucik, Martin McCormack and Brendan Bowers discuss two of the hottest stories in hockey at the moment: Andrew Hammond of the Ottawa Senators and the Los Angeles Kings' late season run. They also look at the Rangers and the return of Henrik Lundqvist, the Islanders recent rough patch and what the Devils need to do to improve next season.

The Rangers have two men to thank for their current status without Lundqvist being as good as it is.

Over a month ago, I wrote about New York Ranger franchise goaltender Henrik Lundqvist’s injury and how backup goalie Cam Talbot would be able to keep the Rangers afloat in his absence. Through those three weeks Talbot did just that, and probably played better than many expected. Talbot and rookie net minder MacKenzie Skapski have gone above and beyond to have the Rangers not only in first place in the Metro, but in the President’s Trophy race, and with Lundqvist finally cleared for practice, their performances should be recognized.

Sunshine and Scully

An afternoon with the greatest play-by-play man of all time.

It was the moment I had been waiting for since I stepped foot onto the Rose Hill Campus four years ago. While I’ve interviewed countless Fordham athletes, coaches and alums, there was one Fordham Ram who fascinated me more than any of the others. That man was Vincent Edward Scully.
