Drury Leads Rangers

Rangers Rumors & News

The New York Rangers beat the Florida Panthers 5-2 last night scoring four goals in the third period after getting off to a slow start.

Chris Drury scored the game winning goal and had two more assists as he quickly began earning his big $35 million contract.

The Rangers got their season off quickly when Michal Rosival scored a goal 37 seconds in, but then seemingly took the next two periods off.

“The first 10 minutes I thought we were OK, the second 10 minutes of the first period we were not very good, and in the second period, for me, there was only one team on the ice and it wasn’t the New York Rangers,” Tom Renney told the NY Post.

The Rangers left the ice after the second period and the fans let the team hear their disappointment with a chorus of boos.

It didn’t take long for the team to turn things around and after Petr Prucha tied it, Drury …

Yankees Rumors & News

When the Yankees hit the road it is not unusual to hear fans in the stands rooting for them against their own home team, but up until yesterday it was typically only in cities with horrid teams like the Devil Rays and the Kansas City Royals.

“I know a lot of people might not like hearing me say that, but I think everyone knows I’ve been a Yankee fan my whole life,” James said to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “They have to deal with it.”

Lebron eventually took his hat off before he left the game with the Yankees trailing during the sixth inning, but not before upsetting at least a few fans.

“I am done with LeBron after seeing him rooting for the Yankees and …

Same old post-season song for Yankees

Yankees Rumors & News

For New York Yankees fans, this is getting familiar. And it’s getting old.

Ever since DaveRoberts stole that stupid base for the Red Sox in Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS and Red Sox started their remarkable comeback, the Yankees have done almost nothing right in the post-season.

They were first-round fodder for the Angels in 2005 and for the upstart Tigers last year.

As a Yankee fan, you had to think this year would be different. All the youth, all the positive vibes after the team played so well for the past four months.

Yet, there again last night was the same old playoff story. The Cleveland Indians pounded ‘ace’ Chien Ming-Wang into submission by the 5th inning and routed the Yankees, 12-3, before a frenzied Cleveland crowd.

It was embarrassing, and even LeBron James knew it. James caused a stir with his Yankees cap, but by the end of the game he had it turned backwards, probably hoping no one would notice he was rooting for the Yankees. Too late, LeBron!

It was also hard not …
