428 It’s Go Time!

Game 62. The Rangers will be without Ryan Callahan (bruised foot) and Michael Del Zotto (hip). Jeff Woywitka takes Del Zotto’s spot on defense. John Scott stays in the lineup in Callahan’s place. Steve Eminger will be prucha’d. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal, coming off his shutout win over the…

261 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Without arguably their two most valuable players and leaders, the Rangers just chug along. Then they have to come from behind, have guys benched and banged up during the game. Doesn’t matter. No problem. Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron needed a good game, and let’s be honest, the Rangers needed him…

521 It’s Go Time!

Game 62. Start of the toughest month of the year, and of Southeastern back-to-backs (at Tampa Bay tomorrow) and of three in less than four days (Boston at MSG Sunday at 12:30). Ya boys have won two in a row after an 0-1-1 skid (imagine, we’re calling 0-1-1 a skid?).…

86 Wanna pick the three stars?

We had some discussion about this a couple of weeks back, when somebody asked how the three stars are chosen and I explained the very faulted system. Anyway, then our friend Hedberg picked his three stars in the thread, and they were the same as mine. So I had this…

655 Happy Leap Day!

The Rangers leap into the final quarter of the season tomorrow in Carolina. I was looking at their record again and thinking, if they go 12-9 these last 21 games — which is conservative — they’ll have 52 wins and 110 points. The 1993-94 team holds the franchise records with…

609 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) 40-15-6, 86 points with a quarter of a season left. You kiddin’ me? 2) Henrik Lundqvist. Seven straight seasons of 30 wins. Forty-three career shutouts. Eight this season; 10-2-0 with a 1.24 goals against average, .952 save percentage and four shutouts in his last 12 games. A record…

11 Post-game interviews

Some interesting stuff. Henrik Lundqvist talking about another 30-win season, and about playing in a game where there aren’t many shots but some of them are dangerous. Brad Richards talking about the way he is re-learning to play. Carl Hagelin talking about being mentored by Richards. Brandon Dubinsky with some…

695 It’s Go Time!

Game 61. Trade deadline came and went with no Rick Nash, no trading of prospects or young players. Only XXXXL enforcer John Scott. Ya boys are 2-1-1 in their last four, 22-7-2 in their last 31. Same lineup, which means Henrik Lundqvist in goal … remember last deadline day, when…

89 Glen Sather on the trade deadline

Here’s the audio from the delayed Glen Sather post-trade deadline press conference (at the beginning he’s trading some barbs with former teammate Pete Stemkowski; not sure how much of it the microphone picked up):

171 Deadline passes … reaction to follow

We are expecting Glen Sather to address the media around 4:45 p.m. to discuss the deadline day. I will put up audio shortly thereafter. For those just tuning in, the Rangers acquired 6-7, 270-pound defenseman/winger John Scott — a true enforcer — from the Blackhawks for a fifth-round pick. They…

76 Tortorella post-morning-skate

Looks like a slow deadline day so far. Just one Kostityn joining another in Nashville … so far. John Tortorella held a dumb press conference today — dumb because we really have nothing to ask him at this hour. He did indicate he’d talk again after the deadline if they…

183 It’s Go Time! … Trade deadline edition

Not sure how this is going to work today, but with the Rangers having a morning skate at MSG, and a game tonight, I’m planning on spending the entire day in NYC and not, as usual, at my desk in my pajamas waiting out the 3 p.m. deadline. … So…

500 No Rick Nash, no significant moves for Rangers

As of Sunday evening, 21 hours before the deadline, it sure sounds as if the Rangers will not be getting Rick Nash. It also sounds as if, unless something major changes, they will not be making any significant moves before the 3 p.m. deadline tomorrow. Guessing that Columbus wouldn’t back…

John Tortorella before last night’s game: I think we’ve got a good group that’s struggling a bit with some of the details of our game. But it’s Game 60 and we’re talking about these struggles. I’m pretty happy that it’s taken this long to maybe talk about this stuff here.…
