well rested rangers pull out a win

I will keep this short because a) I don’t have the time and b) I will not have a complete opionon until I watch tomorrow’s game against the Detroit Red Wings.

The Rangers won tonight on four days rest, beating the Buffalo Sabres 2-1. The game was close, but the well rested Rangers were able to piece together a full 60 minute contest.  Chris Higgins and Ryan Callahan scored the two goals for the Blueshirts while Jason Pominville scored the lone goal for the Sabres (with less than a minute to go).

Henrik Lundqvist and Ryan Mille both looked sharp. They may face each other in the Olympics next year. Lundqvist allowed one goal on 37 shots, while Miller gave up two goals on 32 shots.

The Rangers defeated a very solid team tonight in the Buffalo Sabres (first in the Northeast), but the Rangers have had plenty of rest. It will be interesting to see if they can keep this level of play going tomorrow as they face the Detroit Red Wings (7:00 PM – Madison Square Garden).

Rangers lose…again

Instead of recapping the home-and-home series between the New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins (Rangers lost 13-5 if you add both game’s final scores together), I am just going to list a bunch of facts and opinions of how I currently feel about my favorite team in the NHL.

1. The Rangers are now .500 with a 13-13-1 record.

2. The Rangers are now tied with the Islanders. That’s right, the Islanders!

3. The Rangers have lost three in a row and are now 3-7-0 in their last ten games.

4. If the Rangers finish the season at .500 (#1), finish tied with the Islanders (#2), and finish their last ten games of the season with a 3-7-0 record (#3), they will not make the play-offs.

Northeast Preview

NHL Northeast Division

Our friends over at viewfrommyseats.com took a look at the Northeast division today, by asking respective bloggers 5 questions about their team. Each blogger answered the same question, and I’d say some of the answers are pretty interesting. Here are our responses, and you can find the entire division here. Yesterday VFMS took a look at the Atlantic Division, check back daily for other divisions around the league.

There’s going to be an entire new look to the Northeast Division. The Toronto Maple Leafs got much bigger. The Montreal Canadiens got much smaller. The Ottawa Senators got much more dramatic. The Buffalo Sabres got to be much bigger fans of the Coyotes staying in Phoenix. And the Bruins seemed like the only ones that needed to show up to the NHL Awards in Las Vegas.

So what does that mean for the upcoming season? Are the Bruins going to dominate the Division again on their way to the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference? Will the rest of the division step up and throw their weight around the Eastern Conference?

We have a great collection of bloggers around Northeast Division to give us an idea of what to expect this season. We have TheKiiid from Loge19 representing the Boston Bruins. We’ll get our Sabres perspective from David Oleksy at Die By The Blade. Fans of the Canadian teams will get their fix with PPP from Pension Plan Puppets (Maple Leafs), Kyle Roussel from All Habs (Montreal Canadiens), and Kevin Butler & Tambland from Stay Classy (Ottawa Senators). In fact, since Stay Classy can’t be trusted—we have a couple of responses from the guys.

Tomorrow we’ll give the Southeast Division the same treatment. For an entire schedule of the divisions we’re going to cover, you can find it right here (including yesterday’s Atlantic Division Roundtable). Until then, enjoy the Northeast!

1. Why is your team going to be better than they were last season?

Jordan Caron Railroaded by Colten Teubert

CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! DING DING DING DING DING DING DING CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Wow, that was a big hit, and for those of you wondering the name of the freight train is Colten Teubert, a 6′ 4” 200 pound defenseman property of the Los Angeles Kings. The victim, Boston Bruins first round pick Jordan Caron. Caron suffered a broken collar bone from this hit and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, including the Bruins rookie camp in Kitchener Ontario. The one thing that kind of gets me is the way Teubert handles the interview after, as though it wasn’t that big of a deal and he’ll pat Caron on the back and apologize. I guess that’s what makes hockey so sweet, keep your head up and you won’t be taking inventory of your teeth.

Bruins To Host Flyers or Capitals At Fenway

Fenway Puck

This just in from Boston.com, the Bruins will host either the Washington Capitals or the Philadelphia Flyers on Jan. 1. Furthermore, they are also confirming that the 2010 Winter Classic will be played in Boston this year, gauranteed. Look for an official announcement from the NHL sometime in July.

From Boston.com

Yes, there will be a sheet of ice in Fenway Park for a Jan. 1 Winter Classic. It’s a done deal, Bruins vs. either the Capitals or Flyers. The league will make it official at the start of July, with a splashy media event in the old ballpark. NHL free agency begins July 1, which grabs headlines around league cities (except for Phoenix, of course) for 2-3 days. The Sox play at home July 3-12. If the league wants the day for full media attention, it likely will wait for July 13-14 to make official all details, including how to purchase tickets.

2010 Winter Classic: Boston

Fenway_winterclassic_medium

UPDATE: The Boston Globe is now confirming this story. Still waiting to hear confirmation from the NHL. Wondering if the Bruins may announce it tonight at the Habs/B’s game.

ESPN.com is now also confirming the 2010 Winter Classic will be in Boston. Still waiting on the NHL.

I’m sure you have noticed, but it’s been super busy outside the Loge the past 2 weeks thus the lack of conent. We apologize, and will be back in full force next week. Anyway, I came across this article on Stanley Cup of Chowder today and was super stoked. According to the Boston Herald, the Boston Bruins and Fenway Park will host the 2010 Winter Classic on New Years Day. While the opponent has not been set, I hope it’s the Canadiens, there has been rumor it will be the New York Rangers. More coverage here. Thekiid had the chance to check out Chicago host Detroit in the 2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley field, unreal experience. It’s really something the NHL has to do annually.

From the Boston Herald:

Don’t breathe a word of this. Because nobody’s supposed to know. But the Boston Bruins will host the NHL’s Winter Classic outdoor hockey game against an unnamed opponent Jan. 1 at Fenway Park [map]!

Game one of a possible eight.

Saturday’s “original six” tilt between the New York Rangers and Boston Bruins could be a preview of a possible first round match-up between these East Conference foes. The puck drops at 1:00 PM on NESN and MSG+ (MSG+ translates to me having to watch the NESN broadcast on mute). Continue reading ‘Game one of a possible eight.’
