328 Panthers at Rangers tonight

These next two games, at home against non-playoff bound teams, could really put your heroes in a solid playoff position before they hit the road for four straight. They’ve won four in a row, six of seven, and are on a three-game home winning streak. Imagine that? That piece of…

374 Rangers-Penguins in review … by guest blogger eddie eddie eddie

There are no relevant games affecting the Rangers’ playoff push on Monday. Pennsylvania.  The Keystone state.  Home of the Amish. Gentle, hard-working, and  honest people. Also, home of two of the most disgusting sporting teams in existence – the Filthy flyers and the Dirty Penguins. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been in…

767 It’s Go Time!

Better late than never. As you know by now, Lundqvist is expected to start against Marc-Andre Fleury. Rest of the lineup remains the same. That means Avery is prucha’d. There’s some intrigue about what’s wrong with Marc Staal. He didn’t skate yesterday and was a surprise scratch today, but nobody’s…

94 Rangers at Penguins today

Matinee at the new igloo, on NBC. You know what I’d really like to see today. A couple of Crosby Updates. Maybe even a Crosby interview. How great would that be? And a lot of talk about the Staal brothers. Lots and lots of that. Oh, and as much Mike…

278 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Ten to go. If your heroes get 10 of a possible 20 points, that’s 90, and that should be plenty. Scoreboard watching tonight: Kansas City-bound Thrashers at Bison Baby Buffaloes. Boston at Air Canada Leaves. Thoughts: 1) I still think staged fights, or fights for no reason, accomplish little or…

289 Habs at Rangers tonight

Sixth place isn’t looking so great after the Habs beat Tampa Bay in a shootout last night. The Rangers need to win tonight to keep that hope alive. But the Rangers got some help from some pursuers when the Devils and Air Canada Leaves went down. Tonight’s scoreboard watching: Caps-Devils.…

225 Rangers-Islanders in review

I’ll link later to my game story … which was about how there’s always these goofy swings in Rangers-Isles games, and how the Rangers survived the lows by going back to basics — down low, straight-ahead play. They do it after bad periods. They do it after bad games (see:…

36 Tortorella post-game

John Tortorella: “I thought Hank, especially in the first period, made some really key saves. We got into trading chances with them a little bit. I thought we played better as we went on. But we can’t trade chances. We’ve got to continue to work at playing the proper defense.…

Marian Gaborik: “The first period was good and the second period we kind of had a little hiccup there. So, big goal by Cally there and we kept rolling from there.” “It’s always nice to score, definitely. But big win. We didn’t have a lot of games lately. But we’ve…

37 Tortorella pre-game

This was one of the dullest pre-gamers of the season. The news, as you all know already, is that Avery and Eminger are back in, Wolski and Gilroy are prucha’d tonight. The last question of the press conference was whether the Rangers will wear their white jerseys again tonight. Tortorella…

249 Islanders at Rangers tonight

This would be — fairly obviously — an important night to get deuce points, given the other games of note. And while rooting for the scoreboard, you should also root — again, needless to say — against any Bettman Bonus Points being doled out. Tonight’s sked includes: Winnipeg-bound Thrashers at…
