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,…

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…

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…

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.…

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…

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…

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…
