568 It’s Go Time!

Game 36. Your boys on a one-game losing streak, play the second of a three-game trip that concludes with the Hyper Bowl Monday. This is the final game of 2011. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal. Otherwise the lineup is the same, which means Sean Avery (on waivers en route to…

157 Sean Avery headed to the Nutmeg State

According to several reports, Sean Avery was placed on waivers again, for the purpose of assigning him to the CT Whale. I doubt there’s any chance at all that another team claims him … though wouldn’t it be interesting if the Islanders did? And why not. He’s a better player…

300 Rangers-Capitals in review

This is what happens when you play well for an extended period of a season and people take notice … teams that might not be so good, or not playing so great, find another gear when they play you. It becomes a big game for them. And that really hasn’t…

267 Rangers at Capitals tonight

Interesting hockey day. First, the holiday roster freeze is now over, which means the Rangers could be shedding some bodies soon. And one of those is probably going to be pretty controversial. This afternoon at 3:30, Team USA plays Finland in the World Junior Championships on NHL Network. Your boys…

354 Rangers-Islanders in review

First place in the East. Five straight wins. Top two or three in team defense. Fewest losses in the whole freakin’ National Hockey League. And your New York Rangers really haven’t nearly hit their stride or been nearly 100 percent healthy yet. ‘Nuff  said. Thoughts: 1) Seven goals allowed in…

68 Tortorella, Boyle, Lundqvist post-game

Sorry. Had some technical difficulties with the new computer system at the paper … so I missed most of the lockerroom. Here’s a quote from Brian Boyle about his shot-blocking at the end of the second period: “That’s old news for our team. That’s what we do. That’s a big…

367 It’s Go Time!

Game 34. Rematch of Thursday’s 4-2 Rangers win. Ya boys on a four-game winning streak. With Boston idle tonight, the Rangers could move into first place in the East with a victory. Same lineup, other than Henrik Lundqvist in goal (Martin Biron beat the Islanders Thursday) and probably Jeff Woywitka…

43 World Juniors underway

No John Tortorella pre-game presser. He spoke to the media masses after the morning skate today. Meant to post this, you know, before the World Junior championships actually began. But I didn’t. It started today. Team USA plays Denmark tonight at 8 (your focus might be elsewhere, but you could…

That’s about all I’ve got to say today. Hope you and your family have a wonderful day. I’m not going to give out any gifts, either, because you guys have already had 33 games worth of presents. You could not have asked for anything more, right? See ya on Boxing…
