238 Tortorella post-practice

Some good stuff from John Tortorella after practice today, including his picks for this weekend’s NFL games, his reaction to Jim Dolan’s visit in the coach’s press conference last night, some comments for a story I’m doing on Ryan Callahan, and about Carl Hagelin and what he’s done and what…

169 Rangers-Predators in review (updated)

Bizarre night topped by Jim Dolan, all smiles and giggles, popping into John Tortorella’s press conference. I think what happened is that Dolan was in Tortorella’s office and the coach asked him if he wanted to do the press conference instead of Torts. And Dolan took the dare and went…

51 Dolan speaks post-game!

Some weird happenings after the game … First, because somebody asked, Dan Girardi got the hat. Then Jim Dolan — who hadn’t spoken to the hockey writers since 2005-06 — walked into the press conference with John Tortorella, and talked about the direction of the team, and when he started…

293 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Welcome to the second half. The best team in the East, battling for No. 1 overall, better expect that these bottom-dwellers are going to be fired up to play them. That these teams think it’s a barometer game when they play the Rangers. That there’s no more sneaking up or…

169 Rangers-Leaves in review

Shut the front door. That’s how you smother a good team, how you make their night miserable, how you bounce back from a loss. Fact: The Rangers are quickly becoming the team you don’t want to play, because they will make you absorb a beating, fight for every inch and…

116 My midseason analysis: The Rangers’ first 41 games

This is a midseason analysis I wrote for The Journal News and LoHud.com today: The record is the record, and it’s as superb as it is surprising. It is 27-10-4, good for first place in the NHL’s Eastern Conference, second overall, at the halfway point of the Rangers’ season. In…
