520 Devils at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 33. Devils at Rangers. The sinking Devils play their first game under new coaches Scott Stevens and Adam Oates (and Lou Lamoriello) following Pete DeBoer’s dismissal on Friday. Not only have the Devils struggled, having won 12 of their first 36 games, but they are also down to…

Hockey
218 Capitals at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 32. Capitals at Rangers. Happy Festivus, all! Let us begin with the airing of grievances. I got a lot of problems with you people! It is also the anniversary of the night the Boston Bruins celebrated Christmas by going into the stands and Mike Milbury feeding a guy…

Hockey
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…

Hockey
666 Rangers at Flames … It’s Go Time!

Game 29. Rangers at Flames. Happy Hanukkah, my friends! Ya boys have won three in a row, matching their best winning streak of the season. The Rangers finish their Western Canada trip and three games in four nights. They are 2-0 so far, having romped in Vancouver, 5-1, and…

Hockey
425 Rangers at Oilers … It’s Go Time!

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…

Hockey
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…

Hockey
284 Penguins at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 26. Penguins at Rangers. Ya boys have lost two in a row, a 6-3 loss to Tampa at home that probably was closer than the score indicated, and a 3-2 loss in Detroit Saturday which was probably not as close as the score made it seem. The game…

Hockey
483 Rangers at Red Wings … It’s Go Time!

Game 25. Rangers at Red Wings. The bad news: You are, apparently on this blog, what your last game says you are, and the Rangers’ last game was that 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay, their third straight loss to the Lightning. The good news: A) They are 5-0-2 in…

Hockey
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,…

Hockey
435 Flyers at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 23. Flyers at Rangers. Ya boys go for their third consecutive shutout of the Flyers. They have three shutouts in their last four games (Henrik Lundqvist blanked Montreal, Cam Talbot shut out the Flyers twice). The Rangers also have six shutouts in their first 22 games for the…

Hockey
583 Rangers at Flyers … It’s Go Time!

Game 22. Rangers at Flyers. Hope you’ve rid yourselves of all the tryptophan in time for this afternoon’s game at another Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes (an NBC game). Light up the Empire State Building. It’s Black and Orange Friday. And ya boys get to do it…

Hockey
496 Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

Game 21. Rangers at Lightning. Happy Thanksgiving Eve, and to some of us, First Bleepin’ Snowstorm! Ya  boys looking to avenge that embarrassing, unacceptable (their words) 5-1 debacle to the Lightnings at MSG nine days ago. Since then they aven’t given up a goal, with consecutive home shutouts of…

Hockey
385 Canadiens at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 20. Canadiens at Rangers. Are we here already? Virtually a quarter of the way into the season? The Montreal Canadiens make their first visit since Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final, when they shook hands and the Rangers punched their ticket to the Cup Final last May.…

Hockey
496 Flyers at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 19. Flyers at Rangers. Light up the Empire State Building in orange and black, Mr. Snider’s Flyers are in town! And it’s an NBC game, which means even more praise for Mr. Snider, and more video of Dave Schultz and Dave Brown, et al. Which is always nice.…

Hockey
610 Lightning at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 18. Lightning at Rangers. The return of the Three Former Amigos. Ex-captain Ryan Callahan, and Stanley Cup finalists Brian Boyle and Anton  Stralman (who each played nine playoff series over the last three years) make their Garden returns. Ex-Lightning captain Martin St. Louis plays his first game against…

Hockey
675 Rangers at Penguins … It’s Go Time!

Game 17. Rangers at Penguins. Ya boys go into the hornets’ next that they stirred up Tuesday when they embarrassed the Penguins and ended Pittsburgh’s seven-game winning streak. The Pens beat the Maple Leaves 2-1 in Toronto Friday night, so they are tired, but also 8-1 in their last…

Hockey
375 Avalanche at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 16. Avalanche at Rangers. First this: We will do our weekly Live Chat Friday at noon. Be there. Or else. Ya boys come off that startling 5-0 win over Pittsburgh, and the Avs come off that embarrassing 6-0 loss to the Islanders. So, you know, this is going…

Hockey
507 Penguins at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 15. Penguins at Rangers. Pens not only hot (seven straight wins), but probably bothered by their ejection from the playoffs by the Rangers, after holding a 3-1 lead in games, last spring. They will likely be after Marc Staal, of course, because he committed the crime of the…

Hockey
582 Oilers at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 14. Oilers at Rangers. The Rangers come off a hideous loss in Toronto Saturday, a game in which they got swept up into playing the Leaves’ game of chances, executing terribly, playing poorly defensively. Just a lousy game that ended with a giveaway and a 4-on-1 game-winning goal…
