Rangers vs. Islanders is truly back as a rivalry

Did everyone enjoy that game out on Long Island? Did everyone enjoy how these two teams were fighting every inch of ice trying to take advantage on each other? Well this was the feeling no one had since the late 90’s as both sides were putting on a show and the fans were very engaged from their seats every single shift in all three periods of regulation hockey.

Since Islanders General Manager Garth Snow made some incredible moves to bring over Nick Leddy from Chicago & Johnny Boychuk from Boston & goaltender Jaroslav Halak from Washington, these Islanders have improved tremendously out of nowhere and are currently two points ahead of the Rangers in the Metropolitan Division.

But the Rangers have boasted a solid roster as well with majority of their players coming from draft picks and time down in the minor leagues with the Hartford Wolfpack of the American Hockey League. But now the big teams from the big city & the other big team from the suburbs are showing everyone in the National Hockey League why this rivalry was missed so badly.

Early mistakes by the Rangers put the Islanders ahead leading the first period by a score of 2-1, but the Rangers made a comeback tying the score at three a piece till Ryan Strome regained the lead for the Islanders. Strome would convert his second goal of the game towards the start of the third period, but something finally clicked as the Rangers continued to play catch up.

But once again this is where the Rangers are truly at their best and showed this young up & coming Islanders team that they are still learning their trade. It would be 5-4 Isles when Derek Stepan gets a nice pass from Chris Kreider and a quick snap shot to the far post cut the deficit back to one. Then Martin St. Louis who hasn’t scored in over 16 games finally converts a goal going top shelf to tie the game at five.

But the big miracle of the season has been the play of Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein who is not a noted goal scorer but is able to convert at the right time to win the game either in regulation or Overtime. Give Credit to Derek Brassard as he just kept the puck inside the Islanders zone and skated from the near to the far side of the rink, he makes a great cross ice pass that finds Klein and he goes to the far post and beats Halak for the game winner with 4:32 left in the 3rd period.

The Islanders had one last chance within the final minute of the 3rd period, but that shot nailed the near post & out for the Rangers to finally take a win in four tries with one more visit to the Nassau Coliseum this season. But the truth is that you will never see a better hockey game or a better contest between two hated rivals as the Rangers & Islanders have shown you on February 16th.

But while this was a great game and people all over the USA & Canada are talking about it, it’s going to be a real shame when the NY Islanders will be playing their future games in Brooklyn next year. Because we all know it won’t be the same feeling in the arena that’s home to the Brooklyn Nets.

Jets hire Bowles as coach, MacCagnan as GM

It took fiftteen long days of interviews and discussions between New York Jets owner Robert “Woody” Johnson & his consultant’s in former GM’s Charlie Casselrey & Ron Wolf, but the decision has been made as former Houston Texans head of College Scouting Mike MacCagnan & former Arizona Cardinals defensive Coordinator Todd Bowles have been hired in their respective positions as General Manager and Head Coach.

Mike MacCagnan started out with the former London Monarchs of the World League of American Football as a scout and then made several stints in the Canadian Football League as well as a 20 year history inside the NFL as he was once the right hand man of Charlie Casselrey as the GM of the Washington Redskins & Texans, who helped out Johnson with the interviewing process.

To be honest there were rumors circling around that Casselrey were interested in trying a NFL GM job one more time, but it looks like that he is missing his TV Time for the NFL Network. But while MacCagnan is known for checking out prospects in these senior bowl types of games as a scout, we will find out if he is suited for the big office as a General Manager.

As for Todd Bowles his hire is very simple, Dan Quinn is still a part of the Seattle Seahawks coaching staff and has a NFC title game to play against the Green Bay Packers, as the Jets didn’t want to wait and see if Quinn would be available if the Seahawks would head back to the Super Bowl or not. But once again the Jets hired a new head coach who is a master tactician on the defensive side of the ball with the Arizona Cardinals.

Unlike Dominic Rodgers-Cromartie who left the Jets training facility after his interview and signed with the Giants, the Jets gave Bowles his second interview and kept him to sign his contract. A man who played eight seasons in the NFL as a defensive back for the Washington Redskins & San Francisco 49ers will lead Gang Green into the future. He was the interim head coach for the Miami Dolphins back in 2011 after Tony Sparano was fired and has a 2-1 record.

Listening to all the talk shows on radio and NFL Network suggested that Bowles is the next coordinator to make the move into a head coaching position and right now it sounds like MacCagnan & Woody Johnson have found their man very quickly to make this happen. But once again we won’t know anything about these people until we get to the NFL Draft in the end of April, resigning key free agents and free agents who want to come here.

We will need to see what Bowles can really do as the top man of the Jets once we get to training camp, exhibition games and when the regular season starts in September the weekend after Labor Day. At the moment it’s a solid start to this new tandem and hopefully they will get the chance to change things around.

From Kristian Dyer of Metro NY Newspaper in the late Tuesday & Early Wednesday hours just reported that the New Y
ork Red Bulls has fired Head Coach Mike Petke after two seasons. This shocking move came out of nowhere as Mike Petke had two successful seasons getting the club into a place they have never been.

Winning the 2013 Supporters shield and sending the club deep into the MLS Cup Playoffs last season with the first playoff win at Red Bull Arena and defeating DC United, but just falling short against the New England Revolution.

More news will be coming but right now chaos and turmoil have hit the Red Bulls just before the schedule of the 2015 season comes out.
