The Rangers played a playoff race in the Eastern Conference, six points behind last place. In the latest episode of the podcast, Up In The Blue Seats, Ron Duguay opens the show and talks about the Rangers who beat the Blackhawks for their fifth win in six games on Wednesday night. Ron and I are discussing what the team could do before the close on February 24. We are also discussing the future of Henrik Lundqvist with the Rangers beyond this season.

The NY Post Rangers beat writer Larry Brooks and then get past his weekly spot. Brooks discusses the goalkeeper situation with Lundqvist, Chris Kreider's status and the playoff race, whether the Rangers will be buyers or sellers. Can this team find a way to sneak in?

The former ranger Bernie Nicholls then joins the show. Nicholls talks about how he plays alongside Wayne Gretzky, scoring 70 goals in one season, his time in New York and memories of Hollywood Ron. Ron and Bernie talk about the celebrities who came to their games as teammates in Los Angeles, and Ron missed training when the Kings visited New York. Nicholls also speaks of being a partner in All Sports Market, a company that invests in teams.

In "Ron Remembers" he looks back on a story that was celebrated with Jack Nicholson. "Here's Johnny."
