Sam Rosen, the voice of the Rangers on MSG, joined Colin and me for a spell on St. Patty’s day to discuss the state of the NHL playoff chase.  Delighted that he was mentioned in the same sentence as Peyton Manning, Sam was more than happy to share his insight into the NHL season as it approaches the final stretch heading towards the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Tri-State Slap Shots

The trade deadline has long passed. Rick Nash is still on a last place team, Brandon Dubinsky can finally sleep at night, and NHL teams everywhere know exactly which horses they will be riding down the stretch. 70 games down, 12 to go, it’s a good time to check up on the New York Area’s teams as they gear up for some spring hockey.

Brodeur Not Done Yet

by Steve Simineri

Roughly 3 months shy of his 40th birthday Martin Brodeur is still the man in between the pipes for the New Jersey Devils. Even though he doesn’t play 70 games anymore and shares some of the load with backup Johan Hedberg, he is still the man in New Jersey, almost 20 years later.

Reflecting on the Winter Classic

by Jake Kring-Schreifels

It was quite a spectacle. Not just that Citizens Bank Park, the home of the Phillies, became engulfed in orange and black, nor simply that a baseball stadium became undistinguishable, transforming into a hockey venue. No, it was the fact that the Winter Classic, for one day, made hockey the most exciting sport in the world: a clashing of rivals, connections with unpopular players, and an intense understanding and appreciation of the “fourth sport” in America.

Ice Time With Aaron Cohen

by Jake Kring-Schreifels

It’s rare to find a show that can instantly create a connection with a broad audience, especially if it’s a show about hockey. But that has been the defining strength of HBO sports and its privileged access with their 24/7 Hockey series. It finishes its second season tonight, this year profiling the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers. The critically acclaimed program takes a unique look into the lives of NHL players and coaches for four weeks leading up to the Winter Classic, culminating at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Its unprecedented coverage and ability to humanize athletes on the ice has captivated even the slightest of hockey fans and has rejuvenated the sport as it approaches midseason.

The Rangers head into this season coming off an 8th place finish and another first round playoff exit—the team’s second under head coach John Tortorella.  2011-2012 will be the teams third full season under the fiery Tortorella, and it’s clear the organization has its eyes on getting out of the 1st round of the playoffs, something the Rangers have accomplished just twice since the lockout.

 Kyle Kesses and Mike Giandomenico talk to Devils, NHL on NBC and Versus play-by-play broadcaster Doc Emrick about Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals and the Stanley Cup Finals (and a little bit about the Pittsburgh Pirates).
