  • Rangers 2 Buffalo 1: It’s very hard to tell exactly what happened with under 20 seconds to go in this game. Henrik Lundqvist came out of his net and made a huge judgment error that led to a great opportunity for Buffalo. The Sabres slammed the puck towards the net and the replays appeared to show that it had crossed the goal line.

    But, the on-ice officials had not called the play a goal and without conclusive evidence, the play had to stand as called. In the end, the Rangers probably got away with one, but they will take it and a 2-2 series back to Buffalo on Friday.

  • Toronto 98 Nets 96: New Jersey got blown out 33-13 to start the game, before staging a great comeback that fell just short. Game six will be Friday night.

  • Florida 5 Mets 2: Mike Pelfrey was awful in the first, but settled down. Unfortunately, it was too late, but Pelfrey’s rotation spot should be safe with El Duque on the DL.
  • Yankees 10 Rangers 1: At this point the Yankees may want to hire an exorcist. Phil “Franchise” Hughes was cruising along with a no-hitter in the seventh inning when he heard his hamstring “go pop”. Now he is out 4-6 weeks and the Yankees will have to find another starter. Paging Roger Clemens, are you in Mr. Clemens?
