307 Rangers-Lightnings in review

  Thoughts: 1) I don’t get too excited over goals sometimes. Carl Hagelin’s first goal went in off his leg or glove or something. His second goal, if Henrik Lundqvist had allowed one like that, you’d all be saying he stinks. But Hagelin played a wonderfully aggressive game. It was…

450 It’s Go Time!

  Game 11. Lightnings at Rangers. Dan Girardi is expected to return after missing two games with an undisclosed injury. He will replace Steve Eminger on defense. Otherwise it looks like the same lineup (and the same line combinations) that beat the Islanders Thursday, meaning Brian Boyle is prucha’d, along…

Somebody call Tony (or Anthony) in AZ and tell him to find me a nice, big (cheap) house on a golf course in Scottsdale, ASAP. I have freakin’ had it with these storms, hurricanes, Nor’Easters, blizzards. They were saying 1-3 inches of snow yesterday, and maybe another 10-15 overnight. Before…

491 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) Let’s start with the kid. Or the kids. Please don’t go overboard with this 19-year-old, who isn’t going to score a goal a game, or two a game. But, geez, right off the bat J.T. Miller looks like he belongs, like he has the body and the ability…

397 It’s Go Time!

Game 10. Islanders at Rangers. First meeting of the season in the luke-warm rivalry. (Let’s face it, the Rangers have much bigger rivalries with the Devils, Flyers, Penguins and even Capitals right now). Brian Boyle, one of the “scared or tentative” players coach John Tortorella mentioned after the loss in…

33 John Tortorella pre-game interview

The coach had some pretty good insights tonight on Brian Boyle and some of his other top players, including the goaltender and, without naming names, Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards. He also spoke about replacing the middle of the lineup lost over the off-season. John Tortorella:

83 Post-practice interviews: Tortorella, Callahan, McDonagh

Ryan Callahan skated with contact today, and he’s not ruling out anything yet … but would not say whether he could play tomorrow (he might). Dan Girardi did not skate and there was no update on his condition (“banged up” still being the official prognosis). John Tortorella had some interesting…

198 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) I really wonder who John Tortorella’s tentative, scared guys are. Marian Gaborik? Michael Del Zotto (he doesn’t look tentative to me, but he made some woeful mistakes)? Brad Richards, who was demoted off the No. 1 line and terrible on the power play? Brian Boyle, who except for…

Game 9. Rangers at Devils. Rematch of the Eastern Conference finals, and the first meeting since the Devils won Game 6 in OT as the Rangers did snow angels around Henrik Lundqvist’s crease. Both teams are 4-4, but the Devils have three Bettman Bonus Points. Lundqvist starts in goal against…
