229 Bryan McCabe for Tim Kennedy and a 3rd rounder

That’s what Bob McKenzie tweeted. If that’s it, it’s a darn good deal for a rental who will help the power play and add some veteran presence, and some physical play. Not giving up Matt Gilroy at this point gives flexibility for a larger deal before the deadline Monday, I…

141 Looks like McCabe’s coming; Stepan not suspended

Here’s a tweet from Nick Kypreos — former Ranger (first off the bench, prematurely, to celebrate the Cup; first to kiss the Cup). Seriously, he’s pretty plugged in. I put a lot of credence in this: #NHL news. Look for #Panthers Bryan McCabe to be traded to the #Rangers as…

67 No review today (updated)

Sorry. I didn’t see a minute of the game. Heard some of it on the radio while I was at a local playoff semifinal (an OT game that didn’t start nearly on time). Then I sat down at 1 a.m. to watch the replay, and instead they were showing a…

604 It’s Go Time!

No Marc Staal (knee), so Ryan McDonagh slides into the first pair with Dan Girardi and faces the fun task for a youngster: facing Alex Ovechkin (=Monster) every shift. Maybe Dubinsky can fight him again and get him off the ice for five minutes. Lundqvist is in goal. Eminger is…

401 Rangers at Capitals tonight

Next-to-last game before the trade deadline. Capitals seem to be getting it together lately. Big, big test for your boys. Not sure yet whether Marc Staal will play, and if so, how effectively. Remember, he normally plays every single shift directly against Alex Ovechkin. If he’s even slowed a little,…

176 McCabe, Richards … and just because …

Since we have a lot of traffic on what is a nothing day, I just figured you need a new clean sheet for your musings. The other one was getting a bit unwieldy. Maybe we can be a little bit more civil this time around? Hmmm? I’m going to a…

467 Trade winds blowing?

Or not? The Monday trade deadline is coming fast, and a lot of teams have jumped out ahead of the parade and made big deals. I still suspect there will be a massive number of trades Monday. And we will be here, at Blog HQ with youse, from breakfast, through…

423 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Was at a hoops game (really, really good game) so I heard the first two periods on radio, came home, watched the third period, then watched the first two periods. Odd way to watch a game. That said, Rangers-Canes was a pretty entertaining one, wasn’t it? Pretty big win for…

494 It’s Go Time!

This isn’t a must-game yet, but it’s close. As I said yesterday, stay ahead of Carolina and you make the playoffs, in my humble opinion. Probable lines: Prospal-Boyle-Christensen Avery-Newbury-Prust Wolski-Stepan-Zuccarello Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan Eminger is expected to be prucha’d.

Expecting some of the beat guys to have some info on Marian Gaborik’s concussion following the morning skate in Raleigh today. If you guys find it before I do, please share. Here are the pre-game notes, courtesy of the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS vs. CAROLINA HURRICANES Tuesday, Feb. 22, 7:00…

287 Flyers-Rangers in review

So two buddies are on a fishing trip, when they come across a grizzly bear. One of them says, “Run!” The other says, “You can’t outrun a grizzly bear.” And the first guy says, “I don’t have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you.” That’s the way…

144 More post-game quotes

Brandon Dubinsky: “We kept pressing. I thought, even though we were down two going into the third period we kept trying to play our game — strong D and try to be oportunistic, try to make some plays. We had some chances. The puck goes through the back door there,…

18 Tortorella post-game

Will update here shortly, and have more later. But first is the news that Marian Gaborik has a concussion, and that it did not happen today. And for that the player has to take resposibility. “He’s concussed,” John Tortorella said. “It didn’t happen in this game. I don’t know when…

Don’t have any lineup news now. But, really, not expecting any changes … unless John Tortorella has decided to go with Martin Biron today. Will update if any news before the game. For those who are outside the metropolitan area and are getting one of NBC’s regional games, you might…

44 Breakfast with the Blueshirts

Because of the early start, and because there couldn’t possibly be anything John Tortorella could say at this hour that will still be relevant after the game, or question that couldn’t be asked after the game, there won’t be a pre-game press conference today. Fine by me. More time for…
