Blue Notes

Steve Zipay takes you inside the locker room, home and on the road, with the New York Rangers, and also writes about the NHL, off and on the ice.

NHL votes on CBA today, live chat Thurs @2, schedule rumors

The BOG meets at about 2, Bettman presser at 4. Stay tuned for info on that later.

First, I'll spend the morning at Rangers skate. Hope to speak with Marian Gaborik, last time was when he skated in Staten Island for the Sandy benefit. As you know, we've reported----and Torts confirmed---that's he's completely recovered from June shoulder surgery.

Still no definitive word on Rangers sked, but MSG avail on 19th and 20.  Wonder if Isles or Devs are visiting? Could also be Bruins or Caps.

Random musing:  "Where Are We Now?", the atmospheric David Bowie tune, his first release in a decade, reminds me of Procol Harum and Elvis Costello's "Shipbuilding". Sounds of a winter in Europe; Berlin obviously.

Programmng note:  First live chat of the season, Thursday at 2 p.m.  Will remind everyone again later and tomorrow. Bring it.
