Because 20 years ago this very week, U.S. Open week at Baltusrol, on Father’s Day Sunday, is when Mike Keenan made official his decision…. Read More →
The Stanley Cup finals begin tonight in Chicago, between two of the Original Six—the first time that’s happened since the Rangers met Montreal for the Cup in 1979. Too bad the teams aren’t still playing at those great old roach-and-rat traps, Chicago Stadium and Boston Garden. Game 1 begins shortly… Read More →
Please take time today to remember the people who sacrificed so much for us. While you’re all grilling your burgers and chicken, I’ll be at break-up day, posting audio, maybe some video, later on. And I’ll tweet the big stuff, if there is any, as it breaks (@RangersReport). The good… Read More →
Meant to post this last night. Sorry. My game story from The Journal News and LoHud.com: By Rick Carpiniello BOSTON — There won’t be any miracle comeback for the Rangers, won’t be any of those good feelings they experienced last year after virtually running the table during the regular season,...

A picture is worth a thousand words, and the picture right here, well, just wow. Look at the five Rangers around Henrik Lundqvist and Gregory Campbell, look at who they are in a must-win Game 5 of a second-round playoff series, and how nobody can prevent the fourth-line Boston center… Read More →

I’m going way out on a limb here and say this is indeed a Must Win for the Rangers. Seriously, though, I think this is a pretty big win for the Bruins, too, because if they lose this one then all that negative stuff from Philly in 2010, and from… Read More →

Here is Rangers coach John Tortorella’s post-practice press conference from Friday. He had some interesting things to say about the team’s Game 4 effort, about Ryan McDonagh and Chris Kreider, among other topics. Video by Rick Carpiniello.
The video of the John Tortorella presser will be up shortly. He had some interesting things to say about Ryan McDonagh and Chris Kreider. Also, the news: Brad Richards skated with the Black Aces today. Chris Kreider, apparently still feeling that injury above his left eye, did not skate.
