Sunday Morning Notes

Just a few things before game-time:

*Holding the viewing party at an Astoria beer garden was a great move by the Rangers yesterday, even if I went the wrong way and ended up in Brooklyn first. It was a fun atmosphere packed with fans having a good time. Too bad the team didn't do anything for Game No. 2 today ...

*Newsday had a 12 page NHL season preview pull-out in today's Sunday paper. It was mediocre, and clearly not written recently. With Steve Zipay covering the Rangers in Prague, no one updated the info he put in there and the dates for the Ranger number retirements were listed as TBA. While that was just lazy, this was just stupid: the pull-out appeared to be sponsored by one of the two teams as the Isles had a full-page ad on the back. No signs of impropriety there ...

*It will be really weird seeing Ollie the Goalie in a Lightning jersey today - almost on the same order as seeing Brian Leetch wearing Toronto's blue and white. There is just something wrong with it ...

*And caption this photo:

"How can you tell that it's all him?"

"Easy; the league made goaltenders reduce the size of their pads this year"
