I am extremely late on this and I apologize for that. I was at my accountants from early morning to shortly after 6:00pm est. When I got home just in time to watch the game today they announced that Cherepanov had passed away. I am still unclear as to what happened, but in the end, does it matter? A young man with an extremely bright future was robbed from hockey fans across the world. I am numb right now, and am extremely dismayed at this news. Chere, Ranger fans across the planet mourn for you, few more than this one.
Out of respect to Alexei, and my personal feelings on this matter, I’m going to leave this up, and do my post game wrap sometime tomorrow, probably late-ish. Yes, I watched the game, and have lots of thoughts on what happened, but we can talk about that another time. This loss trumps any win the Rangers could have in my personal opinion.
