46 How do you approach a long layoff?

“How do I approach a long layoff? That’s just a dumb question.” I approach it by getting some odds and ends out of the way. Later on we’ll have a new “Go Time” post for the skills competition, and by skills competition I mean the skills competition, not a shootout.…

So what happens when the injured heal? One hundred and ninety three man-games lost to injury this year. By the end of the year, that number will likely climb high enough that it will be more than the past three seasons combined. My wife (whose fandom is more than casual but…

168 Panthers-Rangers in review

Ah, what a nice way to start the all-star break. A fluky loss by your boys, and then another snow storm. I remember being on a road trip in Houston with the Mets in 1986, and they were on a roll when the all-star break hit, and they didn’t want…

404 It’s Go Time!

Last game for a week, so enjoy it. We’ll have to fill the six off days with some jibberish and stuff here. Same lineup, with Lundqvist in goal. And yours truly (which means me) will be on the radio (1050-AM and newyorkrangers.com) with Kenny Albert during the first intermission. Could…

165 Rangers at Capitals tonight

Ugh. It’s a Versus exclusive game. And a 7:30 start. As I’ve said many times these past few days, I expect the Capitals to be still stinging from that 7-0 slapping the Rangers handed them at the Garden in December. And I expect the Rangers will have to be better…

207 Rangers-Thrashers in review

That’s a win that feels like two. Or three. Given what they had going into the game, and what they lost (Girardi and Prust) during the game, and again being behind after two periods, and tying it up in the third, and playing a wild overtime and then having the…
