Our gracious and generous donor has given us another pair of tickets to give away, so we’ll have another contest tomorrow. The winner will get two tickets to the March 13 game against Carolina at Madison Square Garden. So let’s review the rules, shall we? (answer: yes). 1) This is…

245 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers have thieved games like this the past couple of years, but in most of those, it was Henrik Lundqvist doing the stealing. This one was hard to explain. Except that, as usual, the Rangers stuck to the plan, kept on playing, and somehow got two critical…

NBC cut away — of course, Tiger was making a move … a golf move — so you probably didn’t see that after Milan Lucic jumped Ryan McDonagh behind the net after the buzzer, the two teams nearly got together at center ice. John Scott was jawing at Zdeno Chara…

782 It’s Go Time!

Game 64. NBC 12:30 start, Edzos. Ya boys have won four in a row and eight of the last 10 against the defending Stanley Cup champs, including both meetings this year — both in Boston. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal against Tim Thomas. The Rangers will be without captain Ryan…

202 Guest blogger SG21: Rangers-Lightning in review

Thoughts: 1) Rangers snuck away with a point here. Even with a two-goal lead early on, TB outshot and outpossessed the Blueshirts. The absence of Callahan and Del Zotto was evident in puck possession, grit and creativity. 2) Pre-game, I knew that we’d be talking about Dubinsky after the game.…

Game 62. The Rangers will be without Ryan Callahan (bruised foot) and Michael Del Zotto (hip). Jeff Woywitka takes Del Zotto’s spot on defense. John Scott stays in the lineup in Callahan’s place. Steve Eminger will be prucha’d. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal, coming off his shutout win over the…

261 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Without arguably their two most valuable players and leaders, the Rangers just chug along. Then they have to come from behind, have guys benched and banged up during the game. Doesn’t matter. No problem. Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron needed a good game, and let’s be honest, the Rangers needed him…

86 Wanna pick the three stars?

We had some discussion about this a couple of weeks back, when somebody asked how the three stars are chosen and I explained the very faulted system. Anyway, then our friend Hedberg picked his three stars in the thread, and they were the same as mine. So I had this…

655 Happy Leap Day!

The Rangers leap into the final quarter of the season tomorrow in Carolina. I was looking at their record again and thinking, if they go 12-9 these last 21 games — which is conservative — they’ll have 52 wins and 110 points. The 1993-94 team holds the franchise records with…
