286 It’s go time!

Go time for me, anyway. I’m going home after three nights in Troy, N.Y. covering basketball. So this is going to have to serve as your game thread. So the Rangers come up against a great opportunity today, all in their soft little hands. Beat the Bruins and jump right…

73 The ever-changing scene

The thing about a playoff race like this is that it changes every day. But the main change where the Rangers are concerned is that seventh place and higher are now pretty much out of the picture. So they have to beat out everybody else for eighth. And the thing…

284 Big bad Blues

The NHL just announced it’s promotional slogan for the playoffs — which means we’ll be sick of it by the second round. Anyway, its “History Will Be Made.”  Should be: “The Rangers Will Be History.” It has become abundantly clear, as if it hasn’t been since that mirage of a…

404 It’s ON! And it’s go time!

God Bless you, Jim Dolan! Cablevision/Optimum Online finally showed up at Blog Headquarters, and for the last five minutes I have had internet/cable/telephone — better known as the Optimum Triple Play, I guess — which has been out since the storm Saturday afternoon. So, since I’ve obviously been away from…

41 Pre-game notes

Hey all, Laurel here. Carp’s heading update at some point for more basketball, but since you asked, and St. Patrick’s Day is over after all, here’s a new slate with some pre-game notes. All I have time to cobble together now. If Papa can’t make game-time slate, I’ll pop back.…

384 Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

On this day, there are two types of people: The Irish, and those who wish they were. Speaking of which, we’ve been blessed with a little bit of the Luck O’ the Irish in Dave Maloney. I had to listen to the game on radio last night since my cable/phone/internet…

361 It’s go time!

I’m telling you, and have been telling you all along … your boys are not going to fall out of this pathetic race. You saw the Flyers the other day. Are they running away? Nope. Boston is going backwards. And Montreal comes to town tonight on its nice little streak,…

162 I’m back … temporarily

Sitting in a cafe with wireless internet! What a great invention. Been living in the dark ages (and the dark) since Saturday. I’m sure you noticed. Anyway, I don’t have much other than I listened to the game Sunday and it sounded like Avery was pretty Avery-esque, and I don’t…

41 Sweet 16! (for real)

Hey all, Laurel filling in for post-game thread while poor Carp is digging out his cars, driveway and house, in the dark, with no food I assume, or water. Man, I feel so bad for him! And he traveled just to post here for you all! That’s why blogfather rules.…

457 I must have ESP

This was the last paragraph of my post yesterday: “I am going to the game at MSG tomorrow. Unless something happens. And why have I come to expect something to happen?” That was written from West Point. Since then, I had a horrific ride back from West Point, driving through…

182 Next up: Carcillo and Co.

OK, so the Rangers beat a lousy team and a lousy goalie in a game they kind of needed. Next up: You know who. The question is this: Are the two points too valuable for anybody to be running around trying to pick a fight that Daniel Carcillo won’t want…

149 It’s “get going” time! … or else

So Sean Avery is prucha’d tonight, along with Aaron Voros. While the six offending defensemen continue to play. John Tortorella said they need more “engagement” out of Avery. I think Avery’s been pretty lousy lately, but just one on that lousy list, and I don’t necessarily agree with this decision,…

219 Big night in ‘Lanta (updated)

I can’t even imagine what this place is going to be like if the Rangers don’t start winning soon. Yesterday we fired the coach and traded the goalie! The goalie who is the reason why they’re in sniffing distance of a playoff spot, who pretty much acts as the team…

319 The aftermath

I’ve seen about 30 or so basketball games the last month as part of my,  you know, real job. And something occurred to me between hoops games, while watching the Rangers last night. If I were their coach, I’d take them to a basketball court and show them how to…
