@KevinDeLury @RobertChiarello Love the positive story this morning. I sit here in Arizona every morning during the playoffs waiting for your 9AM (6AM here) article(s) to appear. Heading to Boston Friday for Game 5 and reading your uplifting article made me feel that there may indeed be a Game 5.

"like the alcoholic I mentioned, I'm officially back on the wagon"
Kevin...are you saying that you fell off the wagon so that you could get back on the wagon? :)
@PsychJukebox @CareyBrandsdorfer IMHO Doc Emerick is the best play by play announcer out there with Sam second.

A nice article by you on Tortorella. Well done!!!! I find it amusing that "fans say he has lost the room" when they have never been in "the room" and have no idea of what is going on there. I for one (as you can tell) love Tortorella. He won a Stanley Cup in Tampa Bay of all places and I believe before he is done here, he will win won in NY.
@NYRfanInNC I find it amusing that Kevin takes another shot at Torts in a Game 7 on the road win. The Ranger organization has NEVER won a Game 7 on the road. Torts takes them to the Final four last year and wins a seventh game on the road against the hottest team going into the playoffs and people still find fault with him. Mindless.

@Betweentheworlds Personally, I think that Ottawa is going to beat the Penguins. Anderson is a great goaltender and I don't think it will go 7.
Had to watch on the NHL Network feed which was the Pittsburgh announcers. I literally had to turn the sound off after the first period. Being a homer is one thing, but those guys are downright ridiculous. Plus, if I hear Malkin referred to as "Gino" one more fucking time...........:)

@IcyCup My only excuse (and it is a poor one) is that I read Kevin's post at 5:45 Tucson time. :)

Ah..4/1... I am a fool
Kevin; It has been a great blog site. Thank you very much for hosting it. Congratulations on the job with the Islanders and...in your case...GO ISLANDERS!!!
Having said what I just did, I agree with everything that Beckfan5 wrote.

I am a glass half full guy on this one. The Rangers get in and then cause a great deal of damage.
My 23 year old son is 9-0 as a Ranger fan seeing them live including multiple wins in Philly (ok...lately no big deal), Toronto, Buffalo, Game 7 against Washington and Ottawa last year and Game 1 against the Devils last years semifinal. He is in Montreal for the game tomorrow. My son WILL go 10-0 :)

@SonLewis Son..thank you for the reply. I just thought it was a non Italian making another negative comment, when it clearly was not. My apologies to you and all the best.

@SonLewis It is "cafone" and is a slur against Italians. I am Italian and I do not appreciate it.
@cb1 @JoeNYR ( cb1-this comment is not posted at you-just put it under your heading)
The Rangers have won ONE Stanley Cup in 73 Years. The guy (Tortorella) who has won one himself took them to within two games of getting to the finals last year and you guys want to fire him after 27 games in a shortened season. Unbelievable.

@JMK8363 JMK...you must have been watching on the DirectTV feed like me (in Arizona). Your comment was right on. The announcers were SOOOOO BAD that I actually watched the second and third periods without the sound on and I cannot remember ever doing that (even with the Capital announcers). My God, I have heard some announcers be "homers", but that was truly an embarrassment and ridiculous.
@MikeBlue Mike, while were at it, lets get rid of Madison Square Garden. It's only 2/3rds done and the fucking Islanders get to play at the new Barclays next year :) IMHO The Rangers will be fine. They will make the playoffs. Where they go from there is anybody's guess and that comment applies to almost all teams that get in. Gaborick and Richards are proven stars in the NHL and should return to form. Hamrlik goes when Staal returns. Eminger will see less time at that point. Boyle's problem is that he is a big man that does not play a "big mans game". He is a below average fighter and as a result, his effectiveness is diminished. He is not feared like a normal 6 foot 8 person on the ice would be. They need to get much more production from the bottom six. Will they? I don't know. They will start to get production again from the top six. They are all proven in the NHL.
Just want to say: Love Sam and love the Torts.
