139 Rangers-Lightnings in review

I do not condone what Artem Anisimov did after that beauty of a short-handed goal put the Rangers up 2-1. You know by now that he went down to a knee, aimed his stick like a rifle toward goalie Mathieu Garon and pumped a few shots. Certainly not the end…

169 Post-game notes, quotes

First, here’s Guy Boucher’s take on the Anisimov/Lecavalier incident: “It was a good rallying moment for us. Definitely, we wanted to stick together tonight. We know we weren’t going to win it individually. We were going to win it as a team and I think that was a gesture that…

32 Tortorella post-game

Had some technical/deadline issues thanks to the shootout, earlier deadlines and a brand new computer system. So I never made it to the lockerroom. I did get to John Tortorella’s presser. The coach did not allow Artem Anisimov to address the media regarding his rifle-shot celebration that touched off a…

601 It’s Go Time!

Game 25. First of three in four nights, and four in six. Rangers still one away from 2,500 all-time wins. Anton Stralman makes his second start as a Ranger, in place of injured Michael Sauer (concussion). Steve Eminger moves up to the second pair with Michael Del Zotto. Erik Christensen…

John Tortorella spoke about Michael Del Zotto’s progress, about what he expects from Anton Stralman tonight, and how his team has, for two seasons, dealt with injuries without being affected. Here is the pre-game press conference: John Tortorella:

212 Michael Sauer has a concussion

John Tortorella today confirmed to reporters that Michael Sauer did suffer a concussion on that clean hit by Toronto’s Dion Phaneuf Monday night. Tortorella said Sauer is “day to day” and added he doesn’t know the grade of the concussion. Don’t get fooled by the “day to day” designation. I’m…

8 Post-game interviews

Not much to report. No update on Michael Sauer, but you’d have to guess he might have a head injury from that hit, which in my opinion was as clean as it was devastating. John Tortorella, in another short press conference, said it was a clean hit. The Rangers admitted…

Game 24. The Rangers with 2,499 all-time victories. OK, that sounds like a lot. But consider that, of the Original Six teams, the Rangers will be the fifth to get to 2,500 wins (if they get there, which they should, eventually, if not tonight). Only the Chicago Black Hawks (or…

221 Rangers-Lightnings in review

So, I guess we can say this streak isn’t a fluke, right? I mean, the Rangers have won games by dominating, won games when they were less than dominating, won games protecting leads, won games by coming from behind. They have gotten up for the big teams, haven’t let down…
