532 It’s Go Time!

Marc Staal will be a gametime decision, based on how he feels in warmups. You probably know his decision by now, via twitter, tweeter, tooter, or the MSG pregame show. Fedotenko is back in. So here are the probable lines according to our sources (the guys who are actually doing…

194 Fedotenko, Staal return; Newbury assigned to Whale

So it looks as if Marc Staal and Ruslan Fedotenko will both be in the lineup tonight. That likely means a prucha for Steve Eminger. And Kris Newbury was sent to the Whale. PS, happy 43rd Mr. Brian Leetch! Here’s the announcement on Newbury, from the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS…

142 Wilds at Rangers tonight

This seems like a slam dunk game, but it won’t be. It’ll be difficult for a few reasons, even though the Wilds lost to the Islanders last night. They’ll be all intent on playing good, hard road hockey, and that usually presents a problem for your heroes, who have enough…

400 Sabres-Rangers in review

This was like taking four punches. Ugh, ouch, ooof, ouch. The Rangers lost, Buffalo won, Montreal won, Carolina won. I will say this about Buffalo, with its three games in hand. I am not impressed based on that game last night. Except for the goalkeeper, that is. The Rangers need…

494 It’s Go Time!

Big, big one. I’m not ready to call any game a must-win with 36 points still on the table. But this could be a huge win or a very discouraging loss against a Buffalo team five points behind, with three games in hand. Marc Staal, who suffered a setback Monday,…

25 Staal suffers setback

According to Andrew Gross’s Ranger Rants blog, Marc Staal suffered a setback — which might be minor — when he left practice early Monday. You can read all about that, and other stuff from John Tortorella’s pre-game press conference, here. That includes the “Is Glen coaching?” remark about Sather saying…

311 Sabres at Rangers tonight

This is your team for the rest of the season, after a quiet trade deadline and the horribly-timed injury to Martin Biron. So this is it, and this is a big game against a team in the chase, and it’s a Versus game, to boot. I know a lot of…

153 Dallas GM Joe Nieuwendyk on Brad Richards

Mike Heika’s Dallas Stars blog for the Dallas Morning News has quotes from GM Joe Nieuwendyk’s press conference after the trade deadline. “In my mind, I wasn’t going to move him unless somebody knocked our socks off with something we couldn’t refuse,” Nieuwendyk said. “We’ve said all along that we…

110 Glen Sather Live

We will have some live comments from Glen Sather at around 4:30, right here. ———- Martin Biron suffered a fractured collarbone in practice and is out indefinitely. Cam Talbot has been called up to back up Lundqvist. Glen Sather: “Can’t speak about the Richards situation (tampering rules). So that’s sort…

764 It’s Go Time (deadline version)!

Larry Brooks tweets that the asking price for Richards is Anisimov, a No. 1 pick, and a prospect. Which is about what I figured it would be … And we know Glen Sather will use his leverage on the Stars’ ownership and management. Give him that. The man knows how…

26 Lightnings-Rangers in review

First of all, be here all morning. Quit your job if you have to. We’re going to do the annual Boneheads Trade Deadline Extravaganza (and picnic) all day long. Starting when the sun comes up … or when I crawl out of bed, whichever comes first. Do I think this…

Dan Girardi: On being in the box for the 5-on-3 goal: “It’s tough, you know? We took a lot of penalties, but I don’t know if they all were (penalties). But that’s the way they called it. We have to live with that. It’s tough to see us lose that…

13 Tortorella post-game

The coach was not happy. He feels his team played more than well enough to win, especially at even strength and even 5-on-4, but got hosed on the Girardi call that led to the 5-on-3 and the winning goal. John Tortorella: “It’s a tough one. A tough one. We gave…

John Tortorella: On what he thinks of McCabe: “Hasn’t played yet.” On what he knows and expects: “Well, we all … veteran guy. He’s got the big shot on the power play. And I think it helps us, at this time of year, with our pairs, especially with Marc being…

35 Tortorella, McCabe pre-game

Will have quotes shortly … but here’s the news. McCabe will play with Eminger and wear No. 28, and play on the power play. Duh. Fedotenko is out, so Newbury will play. Del Zotto is still here, even though the Rangers made a paper transaction to send him to the…
