390 Rangers at Bruins … It’s Go Time!

Game 41. Rangers at Bruins. The Rangers finish the first half of their season tonight in Boston. They, of course, come off that end-of-the-world loss to the Islanders on Tuesday, and carry that one-game losing streak into the start of a stretch of three road games in less than…

440 Islanders at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 40. Islanders at Rangers. Well, it’s been a while since the Rangers-Islanders rivalry was this hot, though IMO tonight’s game at this stage of the season is quite a bit over-hyped. It certainly isn’t a must-win for either team (the Rangers still a game shy of the halfway…

0 Hurricanes at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 31. Hurricanes at Rangers. The Rangers have won five in a row in this schedule of patsies, and really need to make it six against the woeful Canes tonight at the Garden. But beware of the dreaded, inexplicable “first game home after a road trip” syndrome that seems…

Game 28. Rangers at Oilers. The NHL’s latest scourge, the mumps, which claimed glamor boy Sidney Crosby this morning, has taken one of the Rangers’ hottest players out of action the rest of this Western Canada swing. Derick Brassard was sent back to NYC today with a suspected case…

515 Rangers at Canucks … It’s Go Time!

Game 27. Rangers at Canucks. Happy 12-13-14. Finally! A hockey game! Ya boys have played twice in the previous 11 days of this ridiculous portion of the schedule. They begin a three games/four nights Western Canada trip, then take three more days off before heading to Carolina to start…

713 Lightning at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 24. Lightning at Rangers. The Rangers face their former captain, the Untouchable Ryan Callahan, for the third time in seven games. They have pretty much taken a hands-off approach, allowing Callahan to torch them for four goals in two games. The Rangers are 4-1 in their last five,…
