Ryan Callahan: “We need to battle this team and we didn’t do it.” “I thought we had to capitalize on our power play, which we didn’t do. We got out worked. We got out-executed, and it’s just an unacceptable game at this time of year. It’s an unacceptable game at…

We’ll start with the coach, because as you all know by now, his presser was the shortest. Though it did appear he was angry at the Islanders coaches, probably for the way they deployed their muscle late in the game. You know what? Too bad. John Tortorella: One of those…

888 It’s Go Time!

Could be interesting tonight. I forgot that Village People Gillies is back from his perpetual suspension. Maybe he goes back out after his meeting with NHL HQ tomorrow. But Haley, the mini-brawler, is in the lineup, and Avery already had pleasantries with Konopka during warmups. Then there’s Matt Martin, who’s…

43 Tortorella pre-game

You got the news already, but to repeat: Henrik Lundqvist will play tonight, his 22nd straight start, despite a bruise around his right knee. Goalie Cam Talbot had been recalled from Connecticut as a precautionary measure. Wojtek Wolski will be prucha’d and Mats Zuccarello goes back into the lineup. Everything…

43 Talbot’s up; Lundqvist out?

According to the NHL transaction wire, the Rangers have recalled goalie Cam Talbot from Connecticut. Which probably means that Henrik Lundqvist might not be able to play tonight after, apparently, being hit around the kneecap by a shot last night. Presumably, Talbot would back up Chad Johnson if Lundqvist can’t…

37 Rangers at Islanders tonight

No other teams in the race playing today. As you know, the Rangers are 4-1 vs. the Isles this season. How they got there is a different story. When the Rangers have matched the Isles’ intensity and played their grinding game, they have handled the Islanders. When they have allowed…

202 Sabres-Rangers in review

John Tortorella was not happy after this one, and who could blame him? Because while the effort wasn’t good enough, as he put it, for Game 77, neither was the concentration. I mean, there’s a kid goalie thrown in under emergency circumstances, and yet the Rangers insisted on passing up…

For those just joining the party, Ryan Miller is injured and will not play for the Baby Buffaloes tonight. Jhonas Enroth gets the assignment. Here’s the Rangers’ projected lineup, per Zip: Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan Prospal-Stepan-Gaborik Prust-Boyle-Fedotenko Wolski-Christensen-Avery Staal-Girardi McDonagh-Sauer McCabe-Eminger Lundqvist starts his career-high 21st in a row, rested after three non-game…

506 Rangers at Sabres tonight

Well, two of the three games that affected your boys went the wrong way last night. One of the two most important games worked out great, when the Buffalo Baby Buffaloes lost to the Leaves and snapped their three-game winning streak. Carolina’s win, though, kept the Rangers’ playoff berth in…

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…

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.…
