Ilya Kovalchuck won't be on the ice when the Rangers celebrate Brian Leetch night at the Garden tomorrow night. The league handed down a one game suspension to Atlanta's main goal scorer for his hit on Michal Rozsival in the first period last night.
This obviously is good news for the Rangers, who will now only have to focus on shutting down Marian Hossa and getting pucks past Kari Lehtonen or Johan Hedberg, both are no small feat.
Ceremonies for Brian Leetch night for those of us who don't have tickets will begin at 6:30. I'm interested to know how that viewing party and actual ceremony at MSG goes. If anyone that reads this website goes, leave a comment on one of the entries tomorrow, or leave a comment asking for my email address if you want to actually write a blog entry. I'd be more than happy to put up a guest poster, and I'm sure Derek and everyone else here at BoNY won't mind either.
Talk to you all tomorrow.
