Last night's show covered Chris Simon's suspension, the Isles' and Rangers' bad Tuesday night losses, Rick DiPietro's overaggressiveness leading to injury, Devils and Pens discussion along with a surprise from yours truly.
Here's the show archive:
The Devils lost to the Pens last night 3-0, shutout by immortal Joceyln Thibault. No wonder Steve didn't post a recap. I would be pretty embarrassed too. But yeah. My own team has its own problems. The Rangers once again blew a two-goal lead in another crushing 3-2 loss the other night to Ottawa. Making matters worse Karel Rachunek was lost for 3-4 weeks with the same MCL injury that shelved Fedor Tyutin and Marcel Hossa. This team is hexed. They have played pretty hard but how many injuries can you overcome before it just kills you in the end. The Hossa injury has really hurt the scoring up front. They can't seem to score more than two goals. David Liffiton was recalled as was Ryan Callahan. Liffiton will play in Atlanta. As for Callahan, I have no idea why he was called up. It's not like he's going to get in there. They have the immortal Brad "Stone Hands" Isbister.
The Devs travel to Carolina tonight and the Isles are in Ottawa. Both the Canes and Isles are tied for seventh with 78 points but the Fishsticks have two extra games left. The idle Blueshirts will be keeping a close eye on those games.
