57 Panthers-Rangers tonight

I’m out plowing the five inches of snow that was supposed to be less than one inch. Then I’m headed to MSG. Review of Rangers-Caps is in the post below. For those who missed them, here are two sick shootout goals, by Wojtek Wolski and Mats Zuccarello. Here are tonight’s…

140 Rangers-Caps in review

Six days ago, we were sitting in the press conference room and John Tortorella was talking about losing Brandon Dubinsky, on top of losing all these other players including Ryan Callahan, and during the game that night the Rangers would also lose Ruslan Fedotenko. And that was the first game…

647 It’s Go Time!

Martin Biron starts in goal. Brandon Prust is a game-time decision, but he hopes to play. He told reporters in D.C. that “it’s just pain.” Dan Girardi is out. Michael Del Zotto takes his place in the lineup. Either Evgeny Grachev or Brodie Dupont will play. Or both if Prust…

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…

433 It’s Go Time!

Byfuglien. No, really, Dustin Byfuglien, live and in person! Big game for the Rangers tonight. Brodie Dupont is the eighth rookie to make his debut with the Rangers this season — while Dale Weise is prucha’d. Chad (Caloric) Kolarik will start on a line with Brian Boyle and Brandon Prust.…

20 Rangers at Thrashers tonight

You know how John Tortorella acknowledged that the win over Toronto at home was an important one in this stretch of five in seven nights? Well, you might throw this one into that category, too. Because I foresee Washington being really motivated in D.C. on Monday, following that 7-0 bombing…

354 Canes-Rangers in review

You can blame this one on the injuries and the minor-league roster, but that wouldn’t be accurate, because the way the Rangers played, they would have lost even if they’d had most of their injured players. They didn’t play the way they have played most of the season, and the…

344 It’s Go Time!

I’ll join youse guys in progress tonight. Have to be somewhere from 6:30-7:30 or so. Henrik Lundqvist is in goal again. Chad Kolarik will play, Brodie Dupont will skate in warmup and be prucha’d unless somebody else is felled. That’s all I’ve got.

60 Rangers at Canes tonight

This three game trip, and stretch of four against the Southeast (which leads into the much-needed all-star break) doesn’t look so bad on paper. But, the Rangers’ band-aided lineup notwithstanding, it’s going to be tough. Because anybody who saw Cam Ward and the Canes come to MSG two weeks ago…

83 And the winner is … Matt

Well, that contest was fun. Not as simple as I’d hoped because nobody saw the 7-0 score coming. I figured we’d have multiple entries with the correct score and then we’d go to the tiebreaker. But since nobody had the correct score, we went to the first tiebreaker: GWG. Well,…

74 Rangers-Leaves in review

Don’t put too much stock in the score, OK? There was some lousy goaltending and lousy play by the lousy visiting team and it got out of hand in a hurry. That said, there were a lot of positives, including the PK early, then the PP, mostly Gaborik getting going…

11 Tortorella post-game

John Tortorella: “I don’t think there’s any one best thing. Obviously, Gabby getting untracked in a game here hopefully will help his confidence. Our penalty killing I thought was the biggest point early in the game. It’s something we didn’t want to do — we talked about that before the…

First, you’ve heard the news already, probably: Ruslan Fedotenko’s out 2-4 weeks with a second-degree sprain of the a.c. joint in his left shoulder. So not only is Chad Kolarik coming up from Connecticut (AHL), but so is Brodie Dupont. Quotes to follow shortly. —————- Henrik Lundqvist said he was…
