Wednesday was a busy night around the regional sports scene, so grab your morning cup of joe and let's go.
The New York Knicks were put out of their misery for 2012 by the Miami Heat Wednesday, 106-94. We will have lots of reaction throughout the day, so stay tuned.
The Capitals are trying to ruin the New York Rangers vs. New Jersey Devils NHL Eastern Conference Final that we are planning on here at SB Nation New York. We find out Saturday if the Blueshirts let that happen.
It took two save opportunities for the Yankees to be reminded that they have been extremely fortunate to have Mariano Rivera for the last 15 years or so. In his second save chance since Rivera was lost for the season David Robertson turned a 1-0 victory into a 4-1 defeat.
Yes, the Mets swept the Phillies. Pretty soon we might actually start believing that the Mets have a chance to be something other than terrible in 2012.
No Thierry Henry? No Rafa Marquez? No Wilman Conde? No problem for the New York Red Bulls. The Red Bulls defeated the Houston Dynamo Wednesday, 1-0, their third straight victory.
