46 Three games left, then it gets real

The good news is that the Rangers crawl out of that dark chasm today and that, from today until the day they’re eliminated from the playoffs (or dancing with the Cup) the rest of the games will be televised. (how spoiled we’ve gotten). MSG Network will do the three remaining…

65 Marc Staal to Connecticut Whale (updated)

Not sure of the ramifications of this announcement, but just got this from the Rangers: “Marc Staal will be reporting to Hartford and skating with the Connecticut Whale tomorrow.” I imagine that John Tortorella or the team will have more explanation for this later on from Prague. Check the Twitter…

153 To Go, or not to Go …?

Don’t know if an “It’s Go Time!” post is needed or appropriate for a game in Prague that, to my knowledge, is not being televised here. Thoughts? If you want one, I’ll do one. You guys (who aren’t in Prague) are probably going to have to watch this game via…

147 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) From what I’ve seen, this preseason has been disjointed, undisciplined and inconclusive. The Rangers have not played particularly well in any of the three games, and their best players have certainly not stood out for the most part. Maybe that’s just me. 2) As far as Michael Del…

301 It’s Go Time!

Last chance to see your boys before they jet over the ocean for a couple of weeks. I imagine there will be a fair amount of stuff to discuss during and after this game for a lot of reasons, most of them fairly obvious. NHL.com did an analysis on the…

92 Big preseason day for your heroes

This afternoon, at 1:30, they’ll be involved in the Winter Classic press conference at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, where the NHL will make all the official announcements and I’m guessing we might get a gander at the throwback logos and uniforms the teams will wear … plus, probably, ticket…

My sources are telling me there’s a chance that the Rangers will be chosen to play in the Winter Classic this year, and that this will be the announcement tomorrow at a 1:30 p.m. press conference at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. I hate to jump to conclusions, but if…

I’m trying to hold my eyes open late Friday/early Saturday watching the MSG encore of Rangers-Devils … and I’m not going to make it through. So no review today. Sorry. Also, I have a busy football Saturday (barring a rainout … please, God, please!) so I may not be able…
