575 It’s Go Time!

Finally! Lundqvist in goal. Wolski looks like he’s going to play, after a full warmup. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t. Del Zotto’s in for Eminger, who is prucha’d.

51 Tortorella pre-game

Will have more in a moment. The only news: Wojtek Wolski will skate in warmup. He wants to play. If he can’t, Kris Newbury will. Back with Tortorella quotes in a few. The most interesting stuff was about how he doesn’t want Prust fighting the heavyweights, and how he takes…

23 Newbury up, Wolski out

Wojtek Wolski is not expected to play tomorrow because of his sore ribcage. So Kris Newbury is back up.

Hockey
160 Practice, practice, practice

You know, the Rangers were good when they were playing a lot (14 games from Jan. 1-25). But I have this theory about stretches like that. Things kind of get lost a little bit because a team isn’t able to practice due to the games, the travel and the need…

351 Tortorella wants Kreider soon

Chris Kreider, an ’09 Rangers first-round draft pick (19th overall), won the MVP at the Beanpot Tournament in Boston, for Boston College last night. John Tortorella: “I didn’t see any of it. Sully (Mike Sullivan) came in and told me today and I wish that kid turned pro last year.…

31 Live from practice

… if you can call this live. The team had a two-session workout, the second half spent on the power play. Now it’s in a team meeting, so we’re awaiting John Tortorella. Could be a while. News? Well, Wojtek Wolski (ribcage) did not skate today, but expects to skate tomorrow.…

91 Rangers go back to work

… and so do I. If all goes well I’ll be at practice this morning and have a report later on. Maybe an update on Wolski’s ribcage, and an idea on what will happen with the third D-pair (barring a trade) since Eminger didn’t play in the third period Sunday.…

302 Rangers-Penguins in review

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m back. Did I miss anything? Seriously, is there anything I need to know? I mean, I watched all the games, but I really didn’t check in here too much. So, anything going on here? Before I get back to work, special Thank Youse to Sean Mayer…

416 It’s Go Time!

It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: This game is pretty Byfuglien pivotal. Home ice. No Crosby or Malkin. It’s time to make hay. Eminger back in the lineup. Del Zotto prucha’d. Godard to begin serving his automatic 10-game suspension for coming off the bench during the Pens’…

49 An appreciation of Kenny G

How’s that for an intro? I’m not talking about the frizzy-haired musician. I’m talking about Ken Gernander, coach of the Connecticut Whale. Four score and seven years ago — well, at least it feels as if it were that long ago — I covered the Rangers’ AHL affiliate when it…

535 It’s Go Time!

Pivotal game tonight, with the host Thrashers just four points behind the Rangers for the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference. (Carolina is in eighth place, three points behind the Rangers.) The Rangers, with five losses in a row, aren’t the only team that’s struggling. Atlanta has lost four straight…
