54 Some homestretch thoughts

1) As much as youse probably, ahem, dislike the filthy cooke-riddled Penguins, you have to be impressed that here they are battling not only for the Patrick Division crown but also for the conference title and home-ice (for what that’s worth, which isn’t much) in the final weeks of the…

222 Interesting hockey week … but not tonight

This is really the homestretch, but if your interest is in the Leastern Conference, you have to wait for tomorrow. Tonight there are only two Bestern Conference games — one of them should be pretty good — Chicago-Detroit. Then tomorrow the fun begins. Your boys are off, but a good…

152 Rangers-Bruins in review, by guest blogger Adam Z.

What a difference a year makes. A season ago, 87 points meant failure. Today, by contrast, 87 points means the following: One regulation loss in our last 10 games. Tied points-wise with Montreal for sixth. Seven points clear of Carolina. The magic number down to eight. And three days off…

I have nothing to add. So I wanted to just make sure you guys got a blank slate for your usual game-day hilarity. If I do get a few moments to check on any new info, I’ll update here. My guess: Sean Avery goes back in. Not sure for whom.…

83 Rangers at Bruins today

Was a rough night off for the Rangers, as both Carolina and Buffalo won, tightening the race once again. The magic number remains 12, and that point the Rangers got in the god-awful skills competition loss to Ottawa looks pretty big right now. So does the point they didn’t get.…

343 Senators-Rangers in review

Awful. Just awful. Maybe you could have seen this coming. Maybe. But, really, the Rangers have given us reason to think they won’t succumb to the set-up, to playing down to the opponent. They did, although I’m giving Ottawa a little bit of credit for lulling them to sleep, and…

Ya boys on a five-game winning streak, seven of eight. This would be a good one to put right in the bank, with seven remaining after tonight and the next four on the road. Marc Staal is expected to return. Matt Gilroy and Sean Avery expected to be prucha’d. Probable…

271 Senators at Rangers tonight

A lot of you were discussing this story from “Hockey’s Future” on the Rangers prospects yesterday. I forgot to tell youse, I spoke with a guy who does a lot of scouting, and who has seen a lot of Chris Kreider this season. This is what he had to say,…

399 Rangers-Panthers in review

OK, it was unwatchable. And the Garden crowd was dreadfully quiet — that’s what happens when people buy season tickets and have to sell a lot of them because of the cost, and then cherry-pick which games they’ll attend; but also when the Garden insists on making hockey games in…

45 Tortorella post-game

John Tortorella: “I thought it was very important to win a game like that this time of year. That’s what I was most happy about. We end up scoring some goals the last little while, winning games that way. You could see it right from the start — I thought…

Tortorella’s presser to follow. Brian Boyle: “Vokoun played well, made a lot of good saves. You don’t want to get frustrated, keep on doing what you’re doing, and we got the goal. I had plenty of chances. “I thought we played pretty good, though. We created some chances. I thought…

First the news. Nothing new on Staal, except that Tortorella did allow that “he’s day to day.” No further explanation of what the injury is or how long he’s expected to be out, or even — as he was asked — if Staal could play today if this was Game…

These next two games, at home against non-playoff bound teams, could really put your heroes in a solid playoff position before they hit the road for four straight. They’ve won four in a row, six of seven, and are on a three-game home winning streak. Imagine that? That piece of…

There are no relevant games affecting the Rangers’ playoff push on Monday. Pennsylvania.  The Keystone state.  Home of the Amish. Gentle, hard-working, and  honest people. Also, home of two of the most disgusting sporting teams in existence – the Filthy flyers and the Dirty Penguins. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been in…
