404 Capitals at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 35. Capitals at Rangers. You know the deal here. The Rangers beyond slumping, crumbling at the moment after those two unsightly losses in Minnesota and Winnipeg. They have won three of their last 13 games (3-8-2), and though they’ve found ways to lose, the last two weren’t even…

Game 34. Rangers at Jets. Some lineup changes tonight for the Rangers, who are 3-7-2 in their last 12 and have lost six in a row on the road. Derek Stepan returns earlier than expected from broken ribs suffered on that Matt Beleskey hit in Boston on Black Friday…

240 Rangers at Flames … It’s Go Time!

Game 31. Rangers at Flames. I think we’re going to have a good idea about the makeup of this team tonight. Not saying they have to win, but they really have to bounce back with a good performance, in a very difficult situation — third in four nights on…

344 Rangers at Oilers … It’s Go Time!

Game 30. Rangers at Oilers. The Glen Sather banner is in the ceiling, the star-studded ceremony over. By my count, this is the list of coaches/players who went from those great Edmonton teams and through the Rangers organization (not counting staff and scouts, etc.). Let me know if I’m…

330 Rangers at Canucks … It’s Go Time!

Game 29. Rangers at Canucks. The Rangers begin a three-games/four-nights Western Canada swing — the highlight is Friday in Edmonton (Glen Sather honored, Alain Vigneault’s 1,000th game, Henrik Lundqvist vs. Cam Talbot, most likely). The return to Vancouver is old hat (chapeau vieux?) to Vigneault. But it’s a big…

170 Avalanche at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 27. Avalanche at Rangers. Oh, well, back to the NHL’s boring inter-conference agenda. Yay, we get to see all the stars from every team. Yipee. So after the best, most intense night of the whole season — and very arguably the Rangers best and most passionate performance –…

238 Rangers at Islanders … It’s Go Time!

Game 26. Rangers at Islanders. The rivalry is renewed, for the first time in Brooklyn — all of the previous meetings have been either at MSG or Nassau Coliseum, except for the one Yankee Stadium game two winters ago. The Isles come in 3-0-1 in their last four, and…

188 Hurricanes at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 25. Hurricanes at Rangers. Sorry for the blog crash. It makes me as happy as you that I spent about four hours on the Rangers-Flyers review which disappeared almost as soon as it was posted, and seen by about eight sets of eyes. This post could disappear if…

439 Rangers at Bruins … It’s Go Time!

Game 23. Rangers at Bruins. The Rangers come off that woeful loss to Montreal Wednesday, where they out-Corsied the Canadiens bus somehow still lost. They are 2-2 in their last four after a nine-game winning streak. Still they are 16-4-2 for the season, and 13-2-2 in their last 17…

Game 21. Predators at Rangers. Going on ESPN radio, 1050-AM, pregame, around 6:40 p.m. Couple of FYIs: I will turn off the avatars on this thread because last game it got sluggish once we started piling up comments. Also, with a busy week coming (five games in eight days) I…

312 Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

Game 19. Rangers at Lightning. Click here to read my earlier column: Can the Rangers’ trajectory continue? Ya boys look to tie the franchise record of 10 consecutive wins, set in 1939-40 and matched in 1972-73, without the benefit of the overtime/shootout nonsense, tonight at another Arena That Changes…

Hockey
170 Maple Leafs at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 18. Maple Leafs at Rangers. In case you missed it, the Clown Show known as the NHL Department of Player Safety didn’t think it was worthy of even considering supplemental discipline against Ottawa’s Zack Smith for his clear headshot on Derek Stepan Saturday. Shocker. Click here for my…
