NHL.com this morning

i find it funny that if you go to the front page, they have a summary of all the series' and a link with a story. For all other 7 matches, the link is about the team winning the series but for some reason the only thing they can think up for the NYR-NJD series with the Rangers up 3-1 is:

Mottau's hard work finally finds its reward

an article on a Devil

Likin the new avatar Nich.

on to topic. NHL.com has to be fair to both sides. They have stories about both the Rangers and Devils. That is the reason. Nothing to look to far into.

The anti-Rangers Bias is really getting old, and there certainly is one for whatever reason. My only thinking is that it's because MSG has it's own channel to promote them, because you rarely hear one good thing about the Rangers unless it's on that channel. Same goes for NHL.com TSN.ca or take your pick really.

Don't forget, the NYR have three major newspapers, plus several regional newspapers, covering them in depth. The Devils tend to get tertiary coverage in the Post and NYDN, almost zero in the Times, and have to rely mostly on the Star-Ledger and Bergen Record. If the NHL feels that they need to put an article on their website to give the Devils a little national coverage, so be it. It's nothing any Rangers fan should get too upset by.

It's fine, IMO.

Sucks that he's a Debbie, but it's nice to see Mottau catch on and play well. Kinda lame that he's the feature story though. Can't we read more about Avery's "disgraceful" antics?
