529 It’s Go Time!

Game 40. Hard to believe just about half a season has gone by. Ya boys return from their little hiatus on a four-game winning streak, with wins in nine of the last 10 and still in first place in the Patrick Division, in the Eastern Conference and in the whole…

27 Tortorella pre-game

John Tortorella spoke about Stu Bickel’s play, about the need for Brian Boyle (and other third- and fourth-line players to score some goals), about moving Dan Girardi to the point on the PP (right-handed shot), and about the possibility that Wojtek Wolski and Erik Christensen go to Hartford for conditioning…

364 Re-living the most remarkable season

I’m going to be interviewed on this documentary I told you about a while ago — about the 1993-94 Rangers. So last night I was studying up, going over some of the things that happened that year, reading accounts of the season (re-reading my book on Mark Messier), etc. And…

254 A little break in the action

We wait until Tuesday for a game, as the Rangers get a well-deserved break and a much-needed mental-recharge day or two. Gonna tell you, I finally got to see the finale of “24/7″  and I thought that episode and the whole series were, by and large, pretty fabulous. I’m really,…

560 Rangers-Penguins in review

Maybe we’ve underestimated the Rangers to this point. When we talk about how they find a way to win, maybe that makes it sound like they didn’t deserve to win. Does that make sense? Bottom line is that, when this Rangers team plays the way it knows how to play,…

430 It’s Go Time!

Game 39. Ya boys lead the Patrick, lead the East, lead the whole freakin’ enchilada. They’ve won three in a row and eight of nine and are undefeated in 2012. The Rangers are the masters of back-to-backs, having gone 5-0-1 in the first games and 4-0-1 in the second this…

195 Rangers-Panthers in review

For all the complaining we (I) did about the outdoor game, it was a downer going back indoors, especially at the World’s Quietest Arena. What a shame. Could you imagine a first-place team in the middle of a season in the 1970s or ’80s and the kind of intimidation MSG…

35 Post-game interviews

John Tortorella (I believe the first question is about Gaborik’s line; he had some interesting things to say about the rest of this season; and also late in the interview, about Ruslan Fedotenko having Wojtek Wolski looking over his shoulder): Brad Richards: Marian Gaborik: Martin Biron: Marc Staal:

89 Tortorella pre-game

Here’s John Tortorella’s pre-game presser. He wouldn’t talk about the fine. He spoke a bit about the team no longer being able to sneak up on anybody. He wasn’t asked if he met with NBC to discuss the outcome of tonight’s game (just kidding! settle down!) Here is is:

196 Tortorella’s fine: $30,000

He got his money’s worth. Rangers coach John Tortorella knew he messed up as soon as he said the words about the referees and NBC conspiring to try to get the Winter Classic to overtime (see post below for the money quote). And whether he was being sarcastic (which I…

295 Tortorella will be fined, not suspended

Rangers coach John Tortorella will not be suspended, but he will be fined (the amount expected to be announced later today) for his comments about the officiating and an NBC conspiracy he made after the Winter Classic. Tortorella spoke with NHL VP Colin Campbell about the comments, and told reporters…
