Kukla's Korner Hockey

Almost Over

from the Star-Ledger,
Jaromir Jagr came walking down the long hallway to the ice. The cameras followed his every step, and the old building shook when he finally appeared. Could this passion inspire the players to turn around this series? Uh, no. As usual, this turned out to be a cosmically cruel joke on the most tortured fans in hockey. Jagr could not become Willis Reed. Henrik Lundqvist would not become Mike Richter. And those fans, the ones who drowned out the national anthem with their cheers, are still waiting after the 3-0 loss... After 3,259 days of waiting, they expected something special and ended up with a punch to their gut, as usual. At least Rangers fans can take solace in this: The longer the lag time between those magical Garden moments, the better the goose bumps will feel along their spines. If they live to see the next one, that is.
