We've had our fair share of technical difficulties this semester, but the final episode of NYU Tonight went off without a hitch. From the anchors and the stage manager to the prompter and media manager, the whole show was 30 minutes of our best work. As the executive producer, I was in charge of creating the run down. But it wouldn't be a Tuesday unless I wrote the Sports Stories too...
The Heat put the Knicks in a 0-2 hole, but Amare Stoudemire’s self-inflicted wounds cut New York deeper. Frustrated with last night’s final score of 104 to 94, Stoudemire slammed his left hand through the glass encasing of a fire extinguisher. He received stitches from Knicks paramedics and left the arena in a sling. A league source said Stoudemire is “almost certain” to miss Game 3 on Thursday in New York. And, there’s a possibility he could miss the rest of the series. The Knicks have lost 11 straight play off games, tying for the longest losers streak in history.
Throughout the season the New York Rangers have frustrated opponents with their defensive system and blocked shots. But last night the Washington Capitals gave them a does of their own medicine. The Rangers found themselves down a man after taking two consecutive penalties in the third period. And, they ended up losing 3-2 as a result. The Rangers vs. Capitals next matchup will be this Wednesday at 7:30 P-M in Washington. They’ll enter Game 3 with the series tied 1-1.
It's sad to say, but that's all the news I'll have for you this semester...at least that'll air on NYU Tonight.
