Four Thoughts: 4/21

1. With the amount of offside and goalie interference challenges, it really makes you wonder how many of these calls in the past have gone missed. I can’t say I blame the NHL and other pro sports leagues for expanding instant replay in order to maintain integrity, but in the NHL’s case, there needs to […]

The New York Rangers dropped Game 1 to the Pittsburgh Penguins by a score of 5-2. For a box score, click here. Maybe, just maybe I should have pumped the brakes on my Marc Staal praise.

Four Thoughts: 4/12

1. Really quick, the makeup Isles-Flyers game in Brooklyn on Sunday night was one of the biggest farces I’ve ever seen in a pro hockey game. I get arena availability is an issue but you can’t say that the Islanders didn’t have the advantage of picking who they wanted to play by dressing players from […]
