Hey everybody, thanks for dropping by.  If you missed the live chat yesterday, make better plans for the one next week, probably Tuesday.

And please check out all the material from me in the paper and online  (the matchups, a story on Henrik Lundqvist's quest for the Cup, a notebook and stuff from Arthur Staple, who's be joining me for the first round----even if he doesn't want to go to Ottawa. Kidding.

And we will have some Newsday videographers here tonight as well

So... Garden empty now but should be buzzing. Please remember to follow me @stevezipay on Twitter during the game and here for post-game extras.

Rangers have a 41-47-5 record all-time in Game Ones of playoff series....More stats on that and a piece on issue of playoff experience in the next entry, and a pre-game notebook coming as well.

Stay tuned....
