The New York Knicks took one from the Orlando Magic last night at MSG. Carmelo Anthony broke a team record for most consecutive games with 20 points and the Melo-Tyson Chandler- Amare Stoudemire combination seems to be clicking wonderfully for the first time.
But that was basketball, and this is just as good.
The New York Rangers defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 Tuesday night for their 2nd straight victory, sending their record back to .500 at 3-3. Henrik Lundqvist had perhaps his best performance of the 2013 season, only giving up a goal midway through the 3rd and the Blueshirts were boosted from goals by Michael Del Zotto and Ryan Callahan at MSG.
But it is the injury to Captain Cally that has everyone worried.
A week ago the New York Rangers finally opened their lockout-shortened season at Madison Square Garden against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Here is a fan’s video (mine) of the always fun player introductions, including all of our Blueshirts favorites: From Henrik Lundqvist, to the big trade get of Rick Nash, to the Captain, Ryan Callahan: Continue reading
The biggest brother vs. brother match-up since Bret faced Owen comes up in one week when Jim Harbaugh’s San Francisco 49ers take on John Harbaugh’s Baltimore Ravens.
And if you thought seeing Ray Lewis on your TV screen 24 hours a day was the scariest thing you would see all week, get a load of the new Sports Illustrated cover for this week (and no, it’s not the above meme):
It was announced earlier today that Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo would miss today’s game with the Miami Heat because of a hyper-extended knee.

Ray Felton returns tonight from the “terrifying” pinkie injury he suffered last month.
This is not the same Knicks team since he left. It will not be the same Knicks team of the past month now that he has returned.
A day doesn’t go by without a story about the Jets. For once, a particular story has not manifested itself from Florham Park, but rather Seattle, Washington.
Seahawks cornerback, Richard Sherman, decided Thursday night to tell the world how much he thinks of himself – by trying to prove he is better than Darrelle Revis: Continue reading
Today the Jets introduced their new General Manager John Izdik. Generally, a General Manager is needed to make decisions for the future of a football team. This, thus far, has never stopped the media from speculating and “sourcing” information about the Jets intention in the off-season.
The latest in these rumors involves the franchise of the Jets, Darrelle Revis.
Marian Gaborik completed the first Hat Trick of the season and Taylor Pyatt added another in a Rangers victory over the Bruins, Thursday night.
After two straight losses, New York found a way to finally break through early – with Gaborik scoring two goals in the first period to stake out an early lead and stop Tuukka Rask’s momentum.
The New York Rangers, a team many a pundit have picked to go as far as raising Lord Stanley’s Cup this year, are as far as they can be from that today: two games, two losses.
Both losses have come against sure rivals for that cup: the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
