237 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) That is the best team in the East, no doubt at all, with the best skill, a goalie who can get hot and stay hot, and a team that can play it rough and nasty, or any which way, and on an absolute roll. And Kris Letang…

676 It’s Go Time!

Game 70. Ya boys on a two-game winning streak. The Penguins on a nine-gamer, six points back with a game in hand. The Rangers will again be without two of their MVPs — Ryan Callahan (foot) and Henrik Lundqvist (flu) — and Michael Del Zotto (hip). Martin Biron starts in…

65 No Skid for me

Hey, I just want to check in because I’m sick of this whole Sidney Crosby thing already … and I just arrived at MSG. But before I tell you how sick, for those of you who actually, you know, give a carp, here’s some audio from Sid the Skid this…

361 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) I could not have dreamed the Rangers would be where they are without Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik paying on the first line together all year.  Imagine if this works now? Imagine if the Rangers finally have that legit first-line with two proven first-line players and a rookie…

714 It’s Go Time!

Game 69. Ya boys no longer on a losing streak … and everybody but them looking ahead to Pittsburgh and Sid the Skid Crosby Thursday. So I guess this is not a Must-win game. Henrik Lundqvist is down with the flu, so Martin Biron starts in goal and Chad (Ochocinco)…

35 Tortorella pre-game

Not even worth putting up the audio. John Tortorella was asked if he can say whether Ryan Callahan’s or Michael Del Zotto’s injuries are getting to be more long-term at this point, and he said no. And he was asked if they’re both still day to day and he said…

503 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) I did a lot of kidding the last few days about “Must-win” games and I really don’t believe there are any such things until you get to a game you really must win, like Game 82 the last two seasons, and Game 5 against Washington last spring. That…

785 It’s Go Time!

Game 68. Ya boys, on their first three-game (regulation) losing streak of the season … so this is a MUST-WIN! Right? ;) The Rangers begin a seven-game homestand. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal. Ryan Callahan (foot) and Michael Del Zotto (hip) are out. Brandon Dubinsky (sinus) hopes to return. Mats…
