416 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) I forgot already the word Alain Vigneault used about the way the Rangers handled the third-period lead. I think he said “choppy” or something like that. Whatever it was, I agree. I thought the entire game last night was choppy. Far from perfect. And against a lesser opponent…

180 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) A+B doesn’t always =C.  The Bruins are far bigger, stronger and tougher than the Rangers. They pushed the Rangers around, in a punishing sense and in terms of battling around the net. I don’t necessarily think that is why the Rangers were completely outplayed again, for a second…
