Just a few days into the first round of the NHL playoffs we've seen 3 overtime games, fines, season ending injuries, a 13-goal game, and WWE style wrestling moves. And to think  we're on tap for another 6 weeks of this intensity. Two of the Stanley cup favorites are already down  0-2, While another has lost an iimportant piece for the remainder of the playoffs.

Jesse Spector of the Sporting News joined Kyle Kesses and Amit Badlani on One on One to discuss the playoff madness.

On Thursday, the top seed in the east, the New York Rangers, open up their 1st round playoff series against the 8th seeded Ottawa Senators. For the Rangers, it was a banner season, as they finished with 109 points and won their division for the first time since 1993-94, which is plenty memorable for Rangers fans. Join me as I take a deeper look at this first round matchup and breakdown whether the Rangers can avoid the upset and move on to the 2nd round.

 

The Home (Ice) Stretch

The race for the first seed in the Eastern Conference was initially a runaway for the New York Rangers. Enter an 11-game winning streak for Pittsburgh and suddenly there was a one point difference between the East’s top two teams with fewer than ten games to go. Though the Rangers pulled away in the season’s final weeks, the value of the first seed has an interesting past.

Fighting has become something of a stain on hockey in recent years, polarizing fans and experts alike about its necessity and practicality. Players grab each other’s sweaters and usually fall to the ground before a real punch is even thrown. It’s more a jest than serious machismo.

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.
