Two-time Super Bowl MVP, Eli Manning, is undoubtedly the current face of the New York Giants, but which player next up to have that honor? A recent article by NFL media analyst, Bucky Brooks, dubbed Giants Pro Bowl Safety Antrel Rolle as the next face of the franchise.
“The Pro Bowl selection has become the defensive leader of the G-Men by being a consistent performer in the backend. He led the team in tackles one season ago while also notching six interceptions and two sacks.”

Brooks added, “Those numbers jump off the stat sheet at first glance, but it’s the on-field impact that truly allows him to be the vocal leader on the defensive side of the ball. With Rolle continuing to impress his teammates with his versatility, playmaking and performance, the wily veteran will continue to serve as one of Coughlin’s key lieutenants in New York.”

NY Red BullsThe New York Red Bulls faced the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium last night in a match which ended in a 2-2 tie.

The Red Bulls looked like they may be able to hold on and win this one but a penalty kick in the 82nd minute converted by Houston’s Brad Davis knotted the game at 2.

The Red Bulls now have 20 points and are seeded 5th in the Easter Conference.

Normally gaining a tie on the road isn’t so bad but the Red Bulls believe the handball called on Chris Duvall which gave Houston the game-tying penalty kick was a bad call. Replays seem to back that up as he used his shoulder to move the ball. However, what’s done is done and the Red Bulls now have to focus on their next game which is July 12th at home vs. the Columbus Crew.

The Red Bulls and Columbus currently have identical records at 4-8-5 so this match will have a direct and significant impact on the standings for both teams.

Red Bulls tickets remain available for this game and all matches at Red Bull Arena.

Martin BrodeurAfter 21 seasons patrolling the crease for the New Jersey Devils, Martin Brodeur will find himself in an unusual situation tomorrow – a man without a team.

Expected to play one last season between NHL pipes, unrestricted free agent Martin Brodeur has reportedly garnered interest from six clubs so far, as reported by ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.

Brodeur’s agent Pat Brisson has already held discussions with those teams as the NHL now allows teams to court free agents prior to July 1st, however they may not sign until the 1st.

Among the teams interested in Brodeur are the Toronto Maple Leafs, now being run by former Brodeur teammate Brendan Shanahan. Other teams rumored to be showing interest are the Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins.

Whether any of these teams actually sign Brodeur or he goes elsewhere remains to be seen but what is rather certain, the Devils will officially be handing the #1 starting goaltender job to Cory Schneider this coming season.

With 16 wins, a .921 save percentage and a 1.97 goals against average last year, the Devils are in good hands.

The team is expected to be looking to bolster the offense via free agency this summer and don’t be surprised to see them courting Jussi Jokinen, an Unrestricted Free Agent who is an expert in the shootout. The Devils lost a record 12 straight shootouts, just a few wins there and they would have reached the playoffs.

Tickets are already available for the upcoming season, be among the first fans to snatch up tickets for Devils games vs the NY Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers and every other team in the league as they visit the Devils next year. The best seats always sell first so act now.

Henrik Lundqvist makes glove save at Madison Square GardenFor the first time in 20 years, the New York Rangers have advanced to the Stanley Cup Final.

The Rangers will faceoff against the winner of the Western Conference Final series which last night was pushed to a Game 7 by virtue of a come from behind third period victory for the Chicago Blackhawks over the Los Angeles Kings.

The Blackhawks will host the 7th and deciding game at the United Center Sunday night.

The Western Conference winner will have home ice advantage due to each team having a better record than the Rangers in the regular season, so the Rangers already know they’re opening on the road.

This doesn’t faze the Blueshirts as they won a franchise record 25 games on the road. The Rangers have 6 road wins during the playoffs, thus far.

The Blackhawks were down 3 games to 1 in this series but pulled out a thrilling double overtime win in Game 5 to stave off elimination and scored twice on just 3 shots during the third period last night to tie and then win Game 6. The defending champions are not going down without a fight!

Los Angeles boasts a combination of skill and size as they lead the NHL in hits during the post season and they’re led by potent offensive contributors like Marian Gaborik, Jeff Carter and Anze Kopitar.

Either team will prove to be a challenge for the Rangers who will be considered the underdog against either team but the Rangers have had some resilience of their own in these playoffs, most notably coming back from a 3 games to 1 deficit to eliminate Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and the Pittsburgh Penguins in Round 2.

Games 3, 4 and 6 (if necessary) will be played at Madison Square Garden. Games 4 and 6 are expected to be the most expensive as these are games which currently have the potential of being the night the Stanley Cup gets awarded.
