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.
NYR on the ice: More players joining skates
With the opening of camps scheduled for this weekend, more Blueshirts are expected to join the drills at the MSG Training Center today and tomorrow: Henrik Lundqvist, Marty Biron, Marian Gaborik, Dan Girardi and Stu Bickel...I'll be there, filing dispatches here and on Twitter @stevezipay, of course.
On the NHL front, as written in today's paper and newsday.com, we had more hockey stories than any local paper by the way, two on Rangers, one on Isles from colleague Arthur Staple, with depth charts, and one on the latest developments in the NHL as regards to ratifying CBA, schedules (I'm thinking both Rangers and isles will open at home on 19th or 20th).
We're also thinking about kicking off our live chat Thursday or Friday, and preparing training camp previews and complete daily coverage from the rink in Tarrytown/Greenburgh...\
So hang in, and welcome to all the new Blue Noters and continuing stream of savvy followers on Twitter...
Things are heatin' up....
