65 Bruins at Rangers tonight (7:30)

Don’t forget the later start, thanks to this being a Versus telecast. That means Tortorella pre-game press conference is half an hour later, too. Here are the pre-game notes, courtesy of the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS vs. BOSTON BRUINS Monday, Apr. 4, 7:30 p.m. Madison Square Garden • New York,…

102 Rangers recall Kris Newbury

I’m wondering if Ruslan Fedotenko might be hurt, or somebody else. Or if they just want a fresh body with some jam against the Bruins. Though I am guessing the Rangers had to have an injury to make this move. —————– Just had an interesting thought about Zuccarello’s demotion. If…

134 Rangers-Flys in review

Has there been a game this season that better defined these Rangers, the It’s Just Paingers? In a game, let’s face it, they pretty much had to win, they played with all those characteristics we’ve seen most of the year: The shot blocking, the body checks, the PK, the struggle…

762 It’s Go Time!

I was thinking this: If the Rangers had gone 6-3-1 in their previous 10, instead of 8-1-1, and then they had won their last two games, they’d be in the exact same position as they are today. And there wouldn’t be this widespread panic and anxiety. Funny how that works.…

108 Rangers at Flyers today, oh my

So how was everybody’s Saturday night? What’s that? Carolina won? Montreal won? Buffalo got a Bettman Bonus Point? Not so good, then, huh? I thought, boy, the Islanders really did play hard against the Hurricanes; full marks to them, though you probably weren’t thrilled when Jack Capuano pulled his goalie.…

611 The Rangers’ Final Four

All season long the Rangers have shown us what they’re made of, what kind of heart and soul and character they have built into this identity. It’s Just Pain, they said. It’s about playing together and picking up each other, and about playing the right way, from beginning to end,…

Ryan Callahan: “We need to battle this team and we didn’t do it.” “I thought we had to capitalize on our power play, which we didn’t do. We got out worked. We got out-executed, and it’s just an unacceptable game at this time of year. It’s an unacceptable game at…

We’ll start with the coach, because as you all know by now, his presser was the shortest. Though it did appear he was angry at the Islanders coaches, probably for the way they deployed their muscle late in the game. You know what? Too bad. John Tortorella: One of those…

888 It’s Go Time!

Could be interesting tonight. I forgot that Village People Gillies is back from his perpetual suspension. Maybe he goes back out after his meeting with NHL HQ tomorrow. But Haley, the mini-brawler, is in the lineup, and Avery already had pleasantries with Konopka during warmups. Then there’s Matt Martin, who’s…

43 Tortorella pre-game

You got the news already, but to repeat: Henrik Lundqvist will play tonight, his 22nd straight start, despite a bruise around his right knee. Goalie Cam Talbot had been recalled from Connecticut as a precautionary measure. Wojtek Wolski will be prucha’d and Mats Zuccarello goes back into the lineup. Everything…

43 Talbot’s up; Lundqvist out?

According to the NHL transaction wire, the Rangers have recalled goalie Cam Talbot from Connecticut. Which probably means that Henrik Lundqvist might not be able to play tonight after, apparently, being hit around the kneecap by a shot last night. Presumably, Talbot would back up Chad Johnson if Lundqvist can’t…

37 Rangers at Islanders tonight

No other teams in the race playing today. As you know, the Rangers are 4-1 vs. the Isles this season. How they got there is a different story. When the Rangers have matched the Isles’ intensity and played their grinding game, they have handled the Islanders. When they have allowed…

202 Sabres-Rangers in review

John Tortorella was not happy after this one, and who could blame him? Because while the effort wasn’t good enough, as he put it, for Game 77, neither was the concentration. I mean, there’s a kid goalie thrown in under emergency circumstances, and yet the Rangers insisted on passing up…
