Rangers 7, Canucks 2; Postgame News & Notes

I’ll have a review up later today. I had some issues at home that prevented me from getting it done ahead of time.  Nothing serious, just a four year old that refused to sleep and then was very cranky in the morning from not sleeping.

For now, please enjoy the Postgame news and notes from the Rangers, via my anonymous source:

Rangers at Canucks … It’s Go Time

Game 17

Rangers at Canucks -10:00 PM MSG

Tonight will be the first night that I try my new idea of just putting together a review that is accurate as of the time of writing, which probably will be sometime during/shortly after the second period. Clearly, this is an HAV.

Tonight is the third game of this four game road trip.  It is the last one in Western Canada, and their third in four nights. They have won the first two games of the trip.

Rangers 3, Oilers 1; Post-game Notes

When I was a kid growing up in Staten Island, every day I would read the Staten Island Advance for its report of the Rangers game and to check the box scores around the NHL.   Often times, the reports of the games played on the West Coast would be incomplete, stating that the printed information was only accurate as of the time of publication.  I used to bristle and get angry that the paper wouldn’t wait until the games were finished and publish accurate information.  While I still think that the Advance was derelict in its duties as its sole function is to provide the news, as a solo, part-time blogger with full time professional job and family with two young children, I certainly understand that desire to just call it a night and go to sleep.  I think what I will do in the future for any late games, including this Tuesday, will be inspired by those reports of my youth.  I will post a review of what I had seen to the point where I call it a night and we can move forward from there.

Below are the post-game notes from the Rangers.  Special thanks to Stranger Nation for the suggestion.

Rangers at Oilers … It’s Go Time! *UPDATED*

Game 16

Rangers at OilersFlames -9:30 PM MSG

First, I want to thank E3 for his awesome review of last night’s game. No volunteers for tonight, so I’ll do what I can for a review tomorrow. Clearly, this is an HAV.

Tonight is the second game of this four game road trip, three of which are in Western Canada, all in four nights. They started tremendously with their first two periods in Calgary, albeit the third was a bit of a let down.  They will need to be strong for three periods against Connor McDavid and the Oilers.
