289 Rangers-Avalanche in review

Thoughts: 1) Gonna get this out of the way quickly. These last three games the Rangers played … they got five points, but games like these usually lead to losing streaks. There are usually warning signs before a team goes into a tailspin, just as there are signs when a…

293 Rangers-Maple Leafs in review

Thoughts: 1) The Maple Leaves are so bad I wanted to throw my shirt onto the ice. Yet, in three terribly undisciplined games this season, Toronto outscored the Rangers 15-12. Right, 27 goals in three games. If all teams could play that way the NHL could get rid of all…

149 Rangers’ no-show performance raises questions

My story from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Over the last four seasons, current season included, the Rangers are 152-89-22. Over the last three, they have played nine playoff series. The relative success they’ve had has largely been based on this: The Rangers don’t take many nights off. Their effort is…

239 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) Some days I try to explain the difference between what happened and what was deserved. Not today. The Rangers got exactly what they deserved — though they may have been pretty lucky to get a point — after an aromatic first 35 minutes of no-show. This team, and…

99 Rangers-Predators in review

Apologies yet again for all the technical glitches. Thoughts: 1) Sometimes the Rangers win and I don’t think they’ve played well at all … fairly often, in fact. Very rarely this season, though, have they lost in games where I thought the performance was quite good. This was one of…

Game 50. Rangers at Predators. First the news: Derek Stepan is under the weather and will be a game-time decision, though Alain Vigneault said his chances of playing are less than 50/50. I’m gonna climb out on a nice thick, comfy limb and guess that no matter which way…

Click here to see my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Size? Really? I’m so tired of the old “can’t compete with the big teams” stuff. Sorry. I am. It’s a myth. And I’m not saying the Rangers shouldn’t be looking to add bigger, grittier bottom-six forwards for a playoff run,…
