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…

Hockey
555 Rangers at Maple Leaves … It’s Go Time!

Game 13. Rangers at Maple Leaves. Ya boys look to avenge a loss to the Leaves in their home opener, a hideous affair, if you recall, which touched off an unsightly three-game losing streak. They are 5-1-2 in their last eight however. After tonight they return home for the…

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

Game 12. Red Wings at Rangers. It’s still tough for me getting used to the idea that these are conference games now. The Rangers are 4-1-2 after their back-to-back home shootout losses (to Winnipeg and St. Louis). They have won only three of seven at home (3-2-2). Mats Zuccarello…

Hockey
694 Blues at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 11. Blues at Black and Blues. As if the Rangers needed another injury … Mats Zuccarello, who was clipped twice in Saturday’s shootout loss to Winnipeg and was limping around the practice facility yesterday, is questionable for tonight’s game. He will be a game-time decision … if he…

Hockey
428 Jets at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 10. Jets at Rangers. Ya boys won their last game with a five-goal third period, and so have won four of their last five. They have played just twice in the past 10 days, but now it gets busy. The Rangers willl play 15 games in 29 in…

Hockey
642 Wilds at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 9. Wild at Rangers. Ya boys come off that awful loss in Montreal, in which so many key players played poorly. So tonight will test their resolve and their ability to bounce back. The Rangers play seven of their next eight at home, during this stretch in which…

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

Game 8. Rangers at Canadiens. The whiny, diving Habs are off to a 6-1 start, and they seek some measure of revenge for their whiny, diving, embarrassing Eastern Conference Final loss to the Rangers last spring. Of course the fans all want Chris Kreider’s head on a platter for…

Hockey
343 Rangers at Devils … It’s Go Time!

Game 7. Rangers at Devils. Actually felt odd typing Game 7. Rangers at Devils. Ya boys open a two-game, spread-out road trip, with a visit to their whining, diving, complaining Eastern Conference championship foes, the Montreal Canadiens, Saturday. Which no doubt will be the Habs’ Game 7. It will…

94 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Planning a Live Chat Friday at noon. Might have been better if they’d lost last night, but still should be good. Be there. Click here for another excellent lohud.com photo gallery from last night’s game. And click here to read my story about that near-perfect victory (sarcasm). Thoughts: 1) I…

Hockey
386 Hurricanes at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 5. Hurricanes at Rangers. Panic time? Not yet. After tonight’s game? Yes, definitely. The Rangers have lost three in a row, each uglier than the one before it, allowing 17 goals. In the last two, against Toronto and the Islanders, the Rangers just collapsed at the first sign…

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

Game 4. Islanders at Rangers. Ya boys need to get it together pretty quickly here. As I said in my preview video (above), the last two games were worse and worser. They play the second of four in a row and 14 of 19 at the Garden, where last…

Hockey
469 Maple Leaves at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 3. Maple Leaves at Rangers. Ya boys play their home opener, with some of their retired-numbers guys in the house, and a new banner in the ceiling for their first (real) Garden game since Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. They come off a bad 5-2 loss…

Hockey
532 Rangers at Blue Jackets … It’s Go Time!

Game 2. Rangers at Blue Jackets. The undefeated Rangers visit Rick Nash’s old haunt. Nash is on pace for 164 goals and 246 points, which would both be records. Cam Talbot starts in goal, so Henrik Lundqvist gets the home opener Sunday against the Toronto Maple Leaves. Tanner Glass…

Hockey
739 Rangers at Blues … It’s Go Time!

Game 1. Rangers at Blues. Ya boys set out to duplicate and surpass what they did last season. Tall task. But they are as good or better than they were last year, theoretically anyway. They leap right back onto the horse with three games in four nights, a visit…

Hockey
99 Rangers at Devils … It’s Go Time!

Preseason Game 6. Rangers at Devils. This is it for ya boys. The final preseason game, and the final look for a bunch of players looking to earn spots before the Rangers make their cut down to 22 or 23 players Sunday or Monday and submit their cap-compliant roster…

Hockey
210 Blackhawks at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Preseason Game 5. Blackhawks at Rangers. Ya boys play their last home game of the preseason. They close tomorrow in Newark. Henrik Lundqvist makes his fourth and final appearance, with Cam Talbot getting the full game against the Devils Saturday. Martin St. Louis see his first game action at…

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

Preseason Game 4. Rangers at Flyers. Ya boys play Mr. Snider’s real Flyers tonight at the Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes, not the Adirondack Phantoms team they pummeled last night. Included in the lineup are Claude Giroux, returning from injury, Wayne (“We’re out for blood!”) Simmonds and…

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

Preseason Game 3. Flyers at Rangers. Light up the Empire State Building in Orange and Black! Mr. Snider’s team is in town! And the Flyers brought all their jackwagons — including the clown Zac Rinaldo, Zack (43 PIMs in three games) Stortini, Jay Rosehill and others. Good to see…

Hockey
238 Rangers at Blackhawks … It’s Go Time!

Preseason Game 2. Rangers at Blackhawks. Many of ya boys make their preseason debuts tonight, and in some cases their Rangers debuts — i.e. Anthony Duclair, who starts on a line with Derick Brassard and Rick Nash. Also for the first time in a Rangers uniform: Lee Stempniak, Ryan…
