106 The Big Boys in goal are stealing these playoffs

Gotta say, these playoffs so far have been tremendously tremendous. OT’s almost every night (no skills competitions, either). And with a few exceptions — the Flyers’ rotation, and for a while there, Roberto Luongo, to name a couple — the goaltending has been spectacular, starting right with one of the…

276 Watch the game!

This is why I don’t like NBC and Versus: 1) There’s a skirmish on front of the Tampa net. Jason Arnott is mad and about to hand out a facial, or at least a glove to the mug, and Versus quickly goes to a closeup of Alex Ovechkin, then a…

208 In case of emergency, don’t break glass

And don’t punch your screen. Or me. Twice in the past week we’ve had a situation where there’s some computer gibberish (jibberish) on the screen, about 100 lines of it or more. It wasn’t just our Rangers blog that was infected, either. It was all the LoHud blogs except the…

381 Welcome to the off-season

There are going to be days like this. Momma said, momma said. I got nothin’. Except this. Somebody suggested the other night that we do some guest reviews of playoff games. I’m up for that, I guess. I can’t do reviews every night, but might be able to do a…

OK, kids, I just finished tabulating the results of our first-round predictions contest. I will wait to make it official in case anybody thinks I made an error in my calculations. If so, please let me know by midnight tonight. I will double-check if you think I made a mistake.…

116 Game 7s in review

Just felt like doing this. I was going to weigh in on the pros and cons of Brad Richards, but we have two months and a week to do that ad infinitum. So on this night of Game 7s — neither of which was as sick as the Chicago-Vancouver Game…

540 Rangers Report Report Cards are out

Hi kids. We’re not going to one of those dumb-as-dirt Keep ‘Em/Dump ‘Em polls as one NYC paper does every season in every sport. Why is that dumb? Because there’s no room to explain how you are going to dump so-and-so, or how you are going to replace him, etc.…

108 Break-up day: More players

Chris Drury: “I think (the young guys) got a ton of experience, guys that’d never done it before, guys who it was their first year in the league and guys who have played a little bit but not gotten in the playoffs. So I’m sure they all got a lot…

135 Break-up day: John Tortorella Part II

First, I think youse all saw that Chara, Lidstrom (does he ever stop?) and Weber were named finalists for the Norris Trophy. ——————- More John Tortorella: I asked him about the “identity” he’s so often spoken about, and if that’s something that is now in place, and if the team…

74 Break-up day: John Tortorella, Part I

The coach came in and, this time didn’t sit down. He said he’s not going to give us 45 minutes like he did last year because he said too much and got into trouble for saying it last year. Then he went nearly 40 minutes again, and pretty much answered…

Marian Gaborik: On whether he’s had a season like this: “Yeah, I think there has been one or two back in Minny. So, it happened. So, over the summer obviously I’m just going to address things and train hard and come back in great shape and bring it to another…

171 No Game 6 tonight … it’s break-up day

So your heroes get together for the final time this season, and for several, if not many, this will be their last time together. Today, break-up day, is normally one of those long, terribly dull days where we stand around and sit around and wait for players to waltz in…

Happy Easter. Before we look back at Game 5 and the series, we’ll look ahead. The Rangers will probably have their break-up day meetings on Monday. We plan on being there (instead of Game 6) for coverage. And we’ll wrap up the season in the next few days. Thoughts: 1)…
