Not Chess: #6 New Jersey Devils at #1 New York Rangers, Game 5, 8:00 Eastern, NBC Sports and CBC. Series tied 2-2

The Devils laid down a spankin on the Rangers in Game 4, actually scoring goals. I know! In the wake of some shenanigans that ensued, especially the ones between Mike Rupp, Martin Brodeur, and the Flying Body of Steve Bernier, Ilya Kovalchuk commented after the game, "It's hockey, not chess. So, we're allowed to punch each other."

Which inspired several members of the Internet world to remind him that hey, clearly you've never heard of Chess Boxing. So I thought we could leave him a few tips that he can find here for his upcoming Chess Boxing matches. For example:

  • Always remember to protect your king and assault the other team's king Henrik.

What do you think he needs to know to be successful?
