Thoughts: 1) The Rangers were totally outplayed by an adrenalized Slovakian team until midway in the second period when the Rangers received a 5 on 3 for a full two minutes. The Rangers scored twice on beautiful passing and from then on dominated the game. The capacity crowd of 10,000… Read More →

Next to last game of the preseason, in Marian Gaborik’s homeland. —————— Still looking for somebody to volunteer to review tomorrow’s game (Monday in Switzerland, 2 p.m.). If you are interested, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now that the cuts have been pretty much made, and most of the decisions, too, there’s one thing still to ponder. We kind of started the discussion last night. Who is going to end up the first-line left wing on Opening Night? Guess the next two preseason games are worth… Read More →

(Editor’s note: Anybody interested in doing reviews of the Sunday or Monday games? If so, e-mail me at email@example.com) Another round of cuts coming today for John Tortorella. As I’ve said all along, there really aren’t a lot of spots available for new guys. The Rangers still need to keep… Read More →

Henrik Lundqvist’s homecoming, against brother Joel. The game is on MSG Network at 1 p.m. NHL.com’s Dan Rosen previews the game from Sweden, with the probable lineup.
The good news is that the Rangers crawl out of that dark chasm today and that, from today until the day they’re eliminated from the playoffs (or dancing with the Cup) the rest of the games will be televised. (how spoiled we’ve gotten). MSG Network will do the three remaining… Read More →
Not sure of the ramifications of this announcement, but just got this from the Rangers: “Marc Staal will be reporting to Hartford and skating with the Connecticut Whale tomorrow.” I imagine that John Tortorella or the team will have more explanation for this later on from Prague. Check the Twitter… Read More →
Don’t know if an “It’s Go Time!” post is needed or appropriate for a game in Prague that, to my knowledge, is not being televised here. Thoughts? If you want one, I’ll do one. You guys (who aren’t in Prague) are probably going to have to watch this game via… Read More →

From the NHL (apologies for the spacing): COLIN CAMPBELL STATEMENT REGARDING RANGERS-FLYERS ALTERCATION TORONTO (September 27, 2011) — Colin Campbell, National Hockey League Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations, today released the following statement regarding an altercation during Monday night’s pre-season game between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia… Read More →
Thoughts: 1) From what I’ve seen, this preseason has been disjointed, undisciplined and inconclusive. The Rangers have not played particularly well in any of the three games, and their best players have certainly not stood out for the most part. Maybe that’s just me. 2) As far as Michael Del… Read More →
from the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS POST-GAME NOTES New York Rangers 3, Philadelphia Flyers 5 (Preseason Game No. 3, Away No. 2) -The Rangers were defeated by the Philadelphia Flyers, 5-3, tonight at Wells Fargo Center, and are now 1-1-1 in preseason action. -New York notched two power play goals… Read More →
Last chance to see your boys before they jet over the ocean for a couple of weeks. I imagine there will be a fair amount of stuff to discuss during and after this game for a lot of reasons, most of them fairly obvious. NHL.com did an analysis on the… Read More →

You can watch the event from Citizens Bank Park on NHL.com, the NHL Network, or on the Rangers’ team site.
This afternoon, at 1:30, they’ll be involved in the Winter Classic press conference at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, where the NHL will make all the official announcements and I’m guessing we might get a gander at the throwback logos and uniforms the teams will wear … plus, probably, ticket… Read More →
From the Rangers: D: Del Zotto, Girardi, McDonagh, Bickel, Sauer, Erixon. F: Avery, Dubinsky, Boyle, Weise, Deveaux, Mitchell, Zuccarello, Christensen, Anisimov, Thuresson, Bourque, Wolski. G: Lundqvist, Biron.
My sources are telling me there’s a chance that the Rangers will be chosen to play in the Winter Classic this year, and that this will be the announcement tomorrow at a 1:30 p.m. press conference at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. I hate to jump to conclusions, but if… Read More →
