Sports Beat “Be realistic about the Isles”
It has been 30 years since the New York Islanders won their last Stanley Cup and frankly they have been abysmal for most of the years between 1983 and now. During this labor-dispute shortened National Hockey League season, the Islanders played respectably enough to earn their first playoff beth in seven years as they clinched the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference. The Islanders drew the unenviable assignment of playing Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and the rest of the Pittsburgh Penguins, long an NHL powerhouse, in the first round. To their credit, the Isles showed that they weren’t merely ...
Rangers Power Play Hits New Low In Game 1 Overtime Loss To Bruins
You might have thought the New York Rangers' lifeless power play couldn't get any worse. Well, the Blueshirts found new depths of ineptitude on the man-advantage in their Game 1 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Somehow, the Rangers' most glaring weakness has gotten worse after going 2-for-28 against the Capitals in round one. After going 0-for-3 against the Bruins on Thursday, their feeble power play now stands 2-for-31 through 8 playoff games. They're not supporting one another, they aren't making simple plays and they're making it look far too difficult. Compare that to the way that ...

NEW YORK — If the New York Knicks’ postseason continues the way it’s started, their fans will think it’s the early 1990s all over again.
