NHL playoff chase: Losing tonight may be winning

Understanding the stakes at hand, it’s a surprise the Rangers and Islanders didn’t play six-on-six hockey Thursday night (MSG, MSG Plus 2) and left their goalies on the bench in an overt way of tanking.
The NHL – yes, the people who gave us 3-on-3 overtime, but won’t do so during the playoffs – decided to revamp the playoff system once again, emphasizing divisional rivalries in the early rounds, but not quite all the way.
The top three teams in each of four divisions qualify, and then the remaining conference teams are bundled with the top two earning wild-card spots. This system doesn’t punish a stronger division in a given year because five teams could advance, but that doesn’t solve in imbalance altogether.
Headed into last night, the Rangers and Islanders have both qualified, two points separating the rivals. The Rangers hold the third spot in the Metropolitan Division and that gives them a playoff series with the red-hot Pittsburgh Penguins, who will have home-ice advantage. The Islanders have the top wild-card spot and must play Atlantic Division leader Florida, again the Panthers holding home-ice.
A Rangers loss would pull them into a tie with the Islanders, who have one game at hand and the tie-breaker edge. Finishing behind the Islanders might actually prove to be a victory because it could give the Rangers an easier playoff path.
So, would you rather face the Penguins, winners of 12 of their last 13, or the Panthers, winners of six of their last seven, though against underachieving foes? Do you contend with Sidney Crosby, rejuvenated ex-Ranger Carl Hagelin and playoff-tested goalie Marc-Andre Fleury (who has missed the last three games with a concussion)? Or do you face ageless Jaromir Jagr and Stanley Cup veteran Roberto Luongo in nets? Pick your poison.
The Rangers beat the Panthers two of three times this season, including a 4-2 win about two weeks ago. The Penguins have beaten the Rangers three times in the last five weeks. If you are a Blueshirts fan, you probably want to avoid the Penguins and Washington Capitals in your own division, and do battle with the Panthers and take your chances with Tampa Bay in the second round.
As tough a pill it is to swallow, losing to the Islanders may be the better path in the long run.

A close-up look at Final Four basketball coverage this weekend

The college basketball season culminates this weekend with a pair of NCAA Division I Final Four events in Houston for the men and Indianapolis for the women.

MEN’S FINAL FOUR
On Saturday, Oklahoma faces Villanova in the first semifinal at 6 p.m., followed by North Carolina and Syracuse at approximately 8:50 p.m.
The big change this year is first-time exclusive cable coverage by TBS after more than 30 years on CBS. The announcers, though, are right out of CBS’ stable with play-by-play man Jim Nantz and analysts Bill Raftery and Grant Hill and reporter Tracy Wolfson.
Saturday’s extensive coverage on TBS starts with At The Final Four from 3-4 p.m. and The Final Four Show from 4-6 p.m. For Monday’s finals, Capital One Championship Central airs from 7-9 p.m., prior to the 9:18 p.m. tip-off.
The studio duties will be manned by hosts Ernie Johnson and Greg Gumbel, plus analysts Charles Barkley, Clark Kellogg, Kenny Smith, Reggie Miller, Seth Davis, Steve Smith and some guest coach appearances.
Bonus coverage of the semifinals and finals will be presented on TNT and TruTV with homer coverage called Team Stream. Oklahoma’s Team Stream (Saturday 6 p.m., TNT) will feature play-by-play voice Chad McKee, analyst Eduardo Najera and reporter Jessica Cody. Villanova’s Team Stream (Saturday 6 p.m., TruTV) will have play-by-play voice Scott Graham, analyst Brian Finneran and reporter Kacie McDonnell.
North Carolina’s Team Stream (Saturday 8:50 p.m., TNT) will have play-by-play voice Wes Durham, analyst Brendan Haywood and reporter Dwayne Ballen. Syracuse’s Team Stream (Saturday 8:50 p.m. TruTV) will have play-by-play voice Tom Werme, analyst Roosevelt Bouie and reporter Donovan McNabb (yes, THAT Donovan McNabb).
Westwood One Radio will broadcast the event, to be aired locally on WGNY (1220-AM, 97.3-FM, WFAN 660-AM, 101.9-FM), and streamed at WestwoodOneSports.com, NCAA.com and TuneIn. Kevin Kugler handles the play-by-play with Clark Kellogg and John Thompson providing the analysis. Jim Gray serves as the reporter. Bill Walton will contribute, as will Doug Gottlieb and Bill Frieder. Jason Horowitz is the studio host for pregame, postgame and halftime.
The Final Four Show starts Saturday’s broadcast window at 3:30 p.m. Pregame coverage for the first semifinal begins at 4:30 p.m. For Monday’s finals, Championship Monday will air at 6:30 p.m. and pregame coverage starts at 7:30 p.m.

WOMEN’S FINAL FOUR
The women’s semifinals will be Sunday. Top-ranked Connecticut faces Oregon State in the first semifinal at 6 p.m. on ESPN. The second semifinal features Syracuse and Washington at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN2 (ESPN will have the Mets-Royals baseball season opener). A pre-game show airs on ESPN at 5:30 p.m.
The women’s finals will be held Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN. A three-hour pregame show starts at 5:30 p.m. on ESPNU featuring former Marist all-star Julianne Viani, Matt Schick and Brooke Weisbrod.
Beth Mowins will make her Final Four TV debut for ESPN after calling previous events for Westwood One Radio. She replaces Dave O’Brien. Doris Burke will serve as analyst once again, and Holly Rowe returns as sideline reporter.
ESPN’s studio crew features Kevin Neghandi, Kara Lawson, Rebecca Lobo and guest coach analysts Stephanie White and Andy Landers.
Connecticut is the prohibitive favorite to win its fourth national title in a row. Ten ESPN analysts and writers picked UConn to win. Charlie Crème, Landers, Lawson, Carolyn Peck, LaChina Robinson, Mechelle Voepel and Stephanie White have picked Syracuse to win its semifinal. Graham Hays, Lobo and Michelle Smith have chosen Washington.
ESPN3 will carry pre-game and post-game press conferences for all three games.
ESPN will utilize 16 cameras for game action, four for the studio portions, and use a “Virtual 3” technology which will illuminate the 3-point arc every time a 3-point shot is attempted – it has been used on NBA Saturday Primetime on ABC and at the ACC men’s basketball championships.
John Sadak, Debbie Antonelli and Krista Blunk will handle the radio call for Westwood One Radio, which can be heard locally on WGNY (1220-AM, 97.3-FM) and online at westwoodonesports.com. Lance Medow is the pre- and post-game host. The pregame show on Saturday starts at 5:30 p.m.

NCAA women’s basketball Syracuse regional press conference quotes, including Army

Dave Magarity, Army Head Coach:

On the confidence of 29 wins and 19 game win streak – “We know we have a tall order having to play one of the host teams, for the second time in three years is something we were trying to avoid. You can read between the lines how I feel about the seed. Especially being in this four team pod, it is the hand we were dealt. They (Syracuse) are an exceptionally difficult team to prepare for, they’re a team that is a mirror image of us at our level. They force 25 turnovers in the ACC, they have forced as many as 27 turnovers in a game and lost. It is going to be a monumental challenge for us due to size, length and athleticism. We haven’t seen that much in our league, because those teams don’t have the personnel and we were the team that was like Syracuse in our league. It is ironic that this is the matchup, and matchups are the key especially on the women’s side, after having been on the men’s side for 30 years. Last year, we played a team that was seeded fourth that should been seeded second and proved me right by going to the Final Four. To be in this position is truly something our team deserves. Syracuse is really really good at getting you to play out of your comfort zone.”

On disagreement with seeding – “For the second time in three years playing on someone’s home court, after we have improved dramatically, I mean when you look at the criteria I am just a little confused. No disrespect to Albany, they are terrific team, but we beat Albany earlier in the season. To be put in this pod with them, that is a big difference. I am not saying we are going to beat Florida if we were set to play them, it is just the way that the women’s tournament is set up with the 16 pods and becomes a very regional type of them. The next closest venue for us would have been Maryland or Ohio State, it was just the luck of the draw for us. We are here and we are thrilled to be here, and our players don’t care about seeding. It is just me, it is a personal thing and I am just looking for an edge. I just didn’t think we were getting an edge or fair shake, it is what it is.”

On getting good looks for Kelsey in the face of the Syracuse defense – “We have to be ready for everything, and we’ve had the benefit of seeing a lot of different defenses throughout her career. I think back to her freshman year, when a team designed a diamond-and-one and two years ago a triangle-and-two. But, since her sophomore year she’s seen every conceivable defense that can be thrown at her, that is designed to get the ball out of her hands and deny her the ball, trapping her every time she comes off a ball screen. Pick your poison here, because SU probably has two or three people they could rotate in. We need to give a lot of ball fakes and move the defense. It is scary watching it because they have improved so much this year. My staff has had some sleepless nights here preparing, no doubt.”

“The story line for tomorrow is that we are going to have make basketball plays. We could design every offensive play imaginable, but it is going to come down to making passes and not turning the ball over. I don’t know if I have seen a team other than Syracuse that moves so well off the ball and close out on the next pass. People talk about their weaknesses, but this is a team that went to the ACC championship. I’m watching film after film in the ACC that is most like us, and it is just scary watching players like Peterson play. We don’t want our kids to play tentative. We put our kids in those situations playing Ohio State, Maryland and Duke, and that is why we are successful because the kids who weren’t ready the last time are now prepared for this.”

Other contributors on the team – “We have had a very successful senior class. They have won 99 games in their career, at our mid-major level that is a heck of an accomplishment. Parker is a tough shooter, she can make big plays and is an undersized swing player. Johnson is a heady, smart kid and role player, she had a big game in our Patriot League quarterfinal game. McNeal, a sophomore, was just named to the Patriot League all-tournament team and the all-defensive team in the league. A number of younger kids have stepped up and played really well. Murray (So.) and we have the Morris twins which bring a lot to the table defensively.”

On game planning for Alexis Peterson – “She’s terrific and I absolutely love the way she plays. It is so hard to keep her in front of you and she has improved so much creating her own shot, she can go either way. When she was out for some games, they were a lot different although still very good. She is on our scouting report as “the engine” that makes them go. Butler is great as well, and they’ve got so many other kids that do great things.”

On Syracuse Head Coach Quentin Hillsman – “He has done an amazing job here putting this program together, and they have a lot of seniors who are terrific kids. It is a nice group, if “Q” wants to make it out like he is the underdog more power to him, but he was in the ACC final. I vote for the USA Today poll and he’s been in the top 15 for most of the year. That’s not an underdog.”

Kelsey Minato, Army Guard:

On challenges playing in the Carrier Dome – “Overall, it is really big stadium and it will be an adjustment for us because we are not used to playing here. Hopefully, in today’s practice and shoot around tomorrow we can get adjusted to the whole atmosphere.”

Observations of the Syracuse defense – “They have a very aggressive press and extended 2-3 zone, they force the most turnovers in the country and for us that is going to be a big challenge. We just need to stay composed and use ball fakes, we need to stay under control and don’t let their pressure get to us and just attack them. We need to be just as aggressive in our offense as they are in their defense.”

“We need to hit the middle and kick out, we just have to take open shots and get rebounds and put backs. We can’t be afraid to take open shots, we have to let it fly and let it go.”

Career relationship to Butler (Syracuse) in three point prowess – “I don’t necessarily pay attention to other players, I am just going to play my game and do what I have been doing all season long. Whether it is being aggressive and getting my shot on the outside, we are going to look to get Aimee the ball on the inside. We need to get an inside-outside game, but for me I am focusing on playing my game.”

On having her jersey retired – “It was amazing and I was not expecting it at all. For the athletic department, the coaching staff and the school to do that, my family was there to see it, that really meant a lot. It was just really special to reflect on all that has happened in the last four years and what I’ve accomplished wouldn’t have happened without the coaching staff and my teammates. I am so blessed to be surrounded by people like that.”

Aimee Oertner, Army Forward/ Center:

On the experience of the Army 2014 NCAA Tournament team – “Coming into this game it is a little bit different from playing Maryland in 2014, none of us had been there before so it was a star struck experience. We thought we could win and have a chance, but no one else believed it. Coming into this game is more of a business trip for us, we know we can hang, we know we can compete Syracuse and beat them. We are going in with a lot more confidence than we did two years ago.”

On being an underdog – “I wouldn’t consider them or us as an underdog, obviously our seeding we are the underdog. But if we play the way our coaches prepare us to, and we really take care of the ball and don’t get frazzled, It will be a good game for either team. They are going to have to do the same, because we have been very successful with our press this year too.”

Quentin Hillsman, Syracuse Head Coach:

What’s it like for this program to host these first two rounds and playing at home and really being part of almost all New York state grouping here:
“It’s phenomenal for our program and for Syracuse, we really want to seize the opportunity of playing at home. The last couple of years have not been too friendly in the first and second rounds, so we really understand the advantages of playing at home and we’re really happy to be here. Our team took it to heart this season and a lot of teams don’t want to talk about it, but we’re honest and we really wanted to play at home.”

What are your thoughts on the defense against Kelsey [Minato] and what will you do to try and slow her down:
“She’s a phenomenal scorer. I think people look at her as a phenomenal shooter, but she’s a phenomenal scorer. She can really attack the paint, she can play the one, and she can play in space. You have to be there when she catches the ball because she can also put the ball on the floor. She’s a great player and from watching her, we’ve become impressed with her skill set, but she makes her teammates better. We have to play team defense and take care of things.”

What are some challenges that you see other teams facing when they come into an atmosphere like the Carrier Dome:
“It’s one of those things that as you play more and more games in this environment that you understand what the challenges are. It’s honestly a shooting challenge. You can say it’s not, but it is. Playing in an open arena and open space seems different. I think the mindset of coming into a place that is not what your team is used to makes you have to find a way to get it done. That’s the biggest challenge teams face.”

Coach, how proud are you of the seniors that have been able to get a home game in the tournament in their final season:
“We look at our senior class winning 70 percent of their games and they’ve really made an impact as soon as they stepped on campus. This was a remarkable group of kids that have taken this program to another level. To be in the NCAA Tournament is amazing and moving forward for the future. Before that, we have to give praise to the former players. Those kids have gotten us to a level that has allowed us to recruit good players to come play with them. They allowed us to take things to another level.”

I don’t know how difficult it is because you’re so focused on winning this game and the strategy that it will take to win this game, could you look outside of this as a fan and feel the intrigue of Brianna Butler and Kelsey [Minato] and the match-up and see what those two can do against each other:
“There’s no question that from prepping for this game, and from watching seven tapes that she’s phenomenal. She can make difficult shots. She makes uncontested shots. She can make floaters. She ball fakes. She ball fakes and shoots, which requires incredible strength. She is a phenomenal scorer and the players around her can catch and shoot and make open shots. You have to make sure you can keep her under control. It’s going to be a difficult game because they can make shots. She’s one of the types of players that if she makes the first two then you never know, so it’s going to be an exciting game and a good match-up. We’re going to be playing zone so Brianna Butler won’t be guarding her, but I don’t know if she will be guarding Brianna Butler or not. We’re going to play the way we play and hopefully we will have enough things in place to let us win.”

Brianna Butler, Syracuse Guard:

What do you make of knowing what Kelsey [Minato] has done and knowing what you’ve done, seeing two of the best active 3-point shooters facing off against each other and do you relish that challenge:
“This should just be a fun game. It’s not really about me or about her, but about Syracuse against Army. Both teams are going to come out here and compete and we are just really looking forward to playing on our home court.”

When you look at the advantages of playing on your home court from a shooting perspective, how much of an advantage is it for you guys that you’ve gotten to play here all season and what challenges do you think it offers for teams that have not played in this type of environment:
“Well first and foremost, the Dome is on top of the football field and just that aspect is a lot different than what other teams are used to. A lot of teams have struggled shooting here and it’s more so a comfort level for us. We’ve had several games here and we’ve always played well here. So we’re just looking forward to it.”

You’re talking about one of the best seasons Syracuse women’s basketball has had, you’ve had an incredible team and other teams know that, how do you prepare for a game where there’s a chance that a team will know just how good you are:
“Usually you have to come in and compete at a high level. We have to be aggressive and make other teams uncomfortable and put the pressure on. You just really have to do what you do and that’s where a lot of the credit goes for this season.”

Obviously you take great pride in team defense, when you face a team with a great player that everyone knows about, do you feel confident in your ability to slow a great player or team down:
“Definitely. We go into each game expecting to play our game plan and our pressure has been good in creating discomfort and not letting teams play how they usually do. I think we’re going to do what we do well and that’s pressure and make things uncomfortable for Army in bringing the ball up and trying to break that up.”

As a shooter, can you talk a little more about shooting in the Dome. You talked about how unusual it is with spacing and what some people call the silver benches and what is that adjustment going to be for the other teams coming in:
“Kind of what Alexis [Peterson] touched on, the Dome is a lot more space and open. A lot of teams are not used to that. I think that it causes a little bit of trouble.”

Briana Day, Syracuse Center:

Army is not particularly a big team, so how do you plan on exploiting that:
“We’re going to get the ball inside and play hard and aggressive.”

Alexis Peterson, Syracuse Guard:

Job number one tomorrow is dealing with with [Kelsey] Minato, I was curious on your thoughts and how you go about that and sort of the preparations going into this week to get ready for her:

“We know she’s a great player and she’s talented. She’s done things in her career and they’ve had a great season so far, so we want to just focus on playing aggressively and playing team defense. We want to try and limit her.”

You’ve had a great season and you aren’t flying under anyone’s radar, does that change your preparation in that your oponents are going to know how good you are:
“I think that this year everyone knows that all teams are good that have made it this far, so we just have to keep focusing on what we do well and focus on our game plan and what has allowed us to be successful up until this point. We need to stay in that frame of mind and work as a team, but we respect our opponents and know that they’re just as good as us.”

What are the advantages you have playing here all season and knowing what it’s going to take, especially in the Dome atmosphere for teams that have not seen this before:
“Brianna [Butler] touched on it. We know what to expect in the Dome. Shooting here can be a little different, if you’ve never had to shoot on these rims and with this much sp.ce, so that’s an advantage for us because we play really well at home and it’s going to be good for us”
