The Nets comeback came up short. The Devils gave up seven goals on their home ice to the Maple Leafs. And Tom Brady retired.

Thankfully, the Rangers showed up to play and won 5-2 against one of the best teams in the league, the Florida Panthers.

But we’re all waiting for tonight’s game at Madison Square Garden. Ja Morant comes to town!

Here’s what we’re watching tonight:

  • NHL: Kraken @ Islanders — 7 PM ET
  • NBA: Grizzlies @ Knicks — 7:30 PM ET
  • NBA: Nets @ Kings — 10 PM ET
  • CBB: Binghamton @ Stony Brook — 7 PM ET

Big Rangers win

The Rangers welcomed one of the best teams in the NHL to MSG last night — and put it on them. Chris Kreider continued his marvelous season with two goals and an assist and Artemi Panarin pitched in a three-point night. This was a huge win for the Rangers.

Bidding on a Martian?

Adios, TB12

With all of the news and comments about Tom Brady retiring from the NFL, New York fans will always have two special games in their hearts. And NBC New York nailed it in this tweet.

Eli Manning won the day, however.

Comeback comes up short

The Nets tried to come back in Arizona late last night but didn’t have enough. They lost 121-111. James Harden had 22 points and 10 assists and Kyrie Irving had 26 points; they were minus-11 and minus-17, respectively.

Team for Sale

The Denver Broncos are on the market! There have been rumors for months that they would be, and now the expectation is that they can bring more than $4 billion. But can the new owners find a quarterback?
