This week we saw both the Knicks and Rangers needing wins at home to even their playoff series. Both accomplished that feat with the Knicks blowing out the Pacers in the 4th quarter to tie the series at one a piece, and the Rangers took advantage of a very cocky and over confident goaltender in evening their series with the Capitals at two a piece.
Also, of mention, is Mets Pitcher Matt Harvey. Harvey, after rooting the Rangers to victory on Monday, tossed a one hit, nine inning, no walk game against the Chicago White Sox. Harvey has clearly become the best pitcher in New York, and should continue to grow in that role for a long time to come. For those of us lucky enough to have seen Seaver and Gooden in our lifetimes, this kid is just as special and hopefully more and more people will make the trip to the ballpark on his days to pitch to see this phenom in action.
Both the Knicks and Rangers return to the road this week just in time to allow the New York Giants to get back to work even if just for a few days. Rookie Mini Camp start tomorrow May 10th and rune through Sunday. Although you will see stories about how players looked and performed this is nothing more than orientation at the new job. The real work begins in August.
