The Rangers haven’t looked as good as they did in the opening minutes of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final possibly all season. And after they took a 2-0 lead in the first 15:03 of the series, it looked like they might run away with the game at Staples Center. But then an awful Derek Stepan turnover, some bad Marc Staal defense and the worst decision of Dan Girardi’s life changed the game and the series.
WFAN Mike’s On: Francesa on the FAN producer Brian Monzo joined me to talk about how distraught he was after the Rangers’ loss, the turnovers that decided Game 1 and how his anger has turned to optimism for the series. And then Monzo broke down the Belmont Stakes at the end of the podcast.
