261 Capitals at Rangers tonight

The Presidents’ Trophy belongs to the Rangers with a win, or if they finished tied with Vancouver in any way on this final night of the regular season. The Canucks play at home against Edmonton tonight at 10 p.m. This could well be a first-round preview, though it remains entirely…

408 NHL fines Tortorella $20,000

This, to me, is a complete joke. The NHL allows players to maim one another, allows teams to purposely start brawls, allows a player last night to effect a race for a division title by stopping a puck with his stick from the bench, but a coach can’t speak his…

289 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, the ending and the post-game sure saved me, because I had no idea how I was going to fill out an entire review on this game. 2) This is why some people hate John Tortorella, and this is also why his players love him. That was an…

92 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) Things got awfully simple thanks to Philly yesterday. Would have been more simple, obviously, if the Rangers had been able to finish things off. So they go to the final three games — at Philly tomorrow, at Pitt Thursday, home against Washington Saturday — needing a point, or…

Didn’t time it, but it might have lasted seven seconds in total. Might even be too fast for you to hear it. John Tortorella: Same lineup tonight. Henrik Lundqvist in goal again.

125 Home ice in peril for Rangers?

383 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) So now it’s 50 wins, and all they need is to go 2-2 to tie the ’93-94 team’s franchise record of 52. That’s secondary. Their magic number on Pittsburgh is three. That’s any combination of points the Rangers get or Pittsburgh fails to get that equals three. Simpler:…
