465 It’s Go Time!

Game 28. The end of the first period is the one-third mark of the Rangers season. Ya boys on a two-game winning streak, playing their fourth game in six nights. They have points in 16 of their last 19 games (14-3-2). They are 8-2-2 at MSG. Brad Richards plays his…

23 Live from MSG … for what that’s worth

No pre-gamer with John Tortorella because he addressed the unwashed masses after the morning skate today. This is standard procedure. It’s always one or the other. So no new news, really. Same lineup tonight, which means Sean Avery is prucha’d (unleash the blog traffic) while Erik Christensen gets a sweater…

219 NHL wimps out on Downie

As I predicted, the NHL didn’t have the onions to discipline Tampa Bay’s Steve Downie for leaving the bench to join — and escalate — an altercation with the Rangers. To me, it’s clear as day that Downie sat on the boards during the whole Artem Anisimov-Vinny Lecavalier incident Thursday,…

172 Rangers-Panthers in review

Not going to get all wrapped up in who did what on a lopsided scoresheet, though I’m sure you all enjoyed the heck out of it, and you should have. Instead, how about numbers?: 17-6-4, second best record in the improving East and fewest regulation losses in the NHL; 8-2-2…

382 It’s Go Time!

Game 27. Rangers close a back-to-back for the fourth time this season. They haven’t lost in regulation in any of the seven games in that situation this year (3-0-1 in the first; 2-0-1 in the second). They are 23-8-3 in the second game of back-to-backs since 2009-10. Erik Christensen goes…

46 Tortorella pre-game

John Tortorella spoke at his pre-game presser about subbing Erik Christensen for Sean Avery tonight, about how hard it is to get something out of guys playing five minutes a game, about the importance of getting Brandon Dubinsky going, and about having the HBO cameras and microphones in the lockerrooms.…

Game 26. The ticket contest is now closed. No more entries. The Rangers have lost two in a row (technically 0-1-1). They haven’t gone three without a victory since the first three games of the season (0-1-2). Or, you could say they haven’t gone three without a win on this…

139 Rangers-Lightnings in review

I do not condone what Artem Anisimov did after that beauty of a short-handed goal put the Rangers up 2-1. You know by now that he went down to a knee, aimed his stick like a rifle toward goalie Mathieu Garon and pumped a few shots. Certainly not the end…

First, here’s Guy Boucher’s take on the Anisimov/Lecavalier incident: “It was a good rallying moment for us. Definitely, we wanted to stick together tonight. We know we weren’t going to win it individually. We were going to win it as a team and I think that was a gesture that…

32 Tortorella post-game

Had some technical/deadline issues thanks to the shootout, earlier deadlines and a brand new computer system. So I never made it to the lockerroom. I did get to John Tortorella’s presser. The coach did not allow Artem Anisimov to address the media regarding his rifle-shot celebration that touched off a…
