17 Post-game interviews

The news on Mats Zuccarello’s fractured left wrist isn’t great. It doesn’t appear he will need surgery, but it is a long-term injury, and I’m guessing (not playing doctor) that it’s one of those 4-6 week deals as a best-case scenario. John Mitchell did not play a shift after his…

516 It’s Go Time!

Game 74. Eight left after tonight. Holy mackeral. Ya boys on a two-game winning streak, finish out a seven-game homestand (4-2 so far) against a very, very desperate Baby Buffaloes team. The Baby Buffaloes have won two in a row, and haven’t lost in regulation in their last six (4-0-2).…

59 Live Chat at noon; Baby Buffaloes at Rangers tonight

Don’t forget the 12 noon Live Chat. Please do whatever you need to do to join us for our intellectual conversation, plus gibberish, about tonight’s game, the homestretch of the season, the season to date, the playoff race, and the playoffs. Wasn’t around much yesterday. Spent the better part of…

335 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) This would have been more fun if they’d met a month or so ago, when they were both tearing it up. Would have been more of a measuring stick for both teams. 2) Would have been more fun for me, anyway, if the Rangers wore their traditional blue…

Some good stuff tonight. Not sure if I turned off the recorder, but after Henrik Lundqvist broke down the goal he allowed — I had asked him if Tim Erixon deflected it and he said he hadn’t — I then said, “Don’t you love it when you give up one…

Game 73. Start of the Foxwoods Final 10 … ooops, sorry. The sixth of a seven-game homestand (3-2 so far). Ya boys have won one in a row and three of the last five, but are 3-5 in their last eight. The Winged Wheels are winless in five (0-4-1) and…

John Tortorella spoke tonight about Dan Girardi being nominated by the New York chapter of the PHWA for the Masterton Trophy; about making the playoffs and preparing for the playoffs, about Artem Anisimov needing to learn to keep his head up: John Tortorella:

186 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) I have maintained that the synchronized fights are kind of silly and stupid, and most of the time they are. So I guess I’m a hypocrite and an imbecile … though I have also said that it’s different in a big rivalry game, and it’s different when there’s…

First of all, Brandon Prust is fine, John Tortorella said. Don’t have audio of this, but Pete DeBoer said: “I guess in John’s world you can come into our building and start your tough guys, but we can’t do the same in here. “He’s either got short term memory loss…

Game 72. Ten left after tonight. Can that really be? The Rangers can clinch a playoff spot with a point tonight, even if it’s a Bettman Bonus Point for losing. Ya boys have lost two in a row, five of seven. They play the fifth of a seven-game homestand. And,…

36 Some pre-game stuff

No John Tortorella presser tonight … he spoke after the morning skate. Said, pretty much, that the last thing he’s thinking about is seedings and home-ice advantage in the playoffs (I completely agree, home-ice is meaningless). ****************************************** Since a lot of you have been discussing Chris Kreider today, here’s the…

First and foremost, thanks again to Carp for giving me the opportunity to take his place in the lineup for this game. There have been numerous occasions this season in which the Rangers goaltending has been the difference. Tonight, the tables were turned. Semyon Varlamov was a brick wall in…
