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…

80 Merry Christmas to all, and to all …

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…

135 Rangers-Flyers in review

Merry Christmas Eve! The lead to my story in The Journal News and LoHud.com today was this: “Laughing all the way.” Because the Rangers go into the holiday break dancing, off four straight wins, three fairly decisive divisional victories in four nights, and in first place in the Patrick Division.…

58 Tortorella pre-game

Short and sweet. Same lineup tonight. Jeff Woywitka re-injured his foot this morning and won’t play. Not sure if it’s now worse or if he’ll be out longer. He talked about Martin Biron very briefly, and about  Mike Rupp. Wouldn’t answer questions on “24/7″  John Tortorella:
