191 The Nassau sandwich: Big game for the Rangers Saturday

The Rangers began their season with six games — an unnecessary four preseason games and two regular-season games — in Europe. After tomorrow they trek to Western Canada for four games. So Saturday’s game is their only close-to-home tilt in the first seven. And I think, of all these games…

181 Sean Avery reports to Whale

According to several reports, Sean Avery has finally reported to the Connecticut Whale (AHL). How that goes, we’ll just have to wait and see. Not sure if he’ll speak with the media up there, or if he’ll clam up … but he might just unload. You never know with Avery.…

138 Looking for lefty? Take a Step left

Gotta tell you, I’m starting to be fascinated on this No. 1 left-wing thing. I mean, it shouldn’t be that hard to find a winger to play with the two most gifted forwards on the team, right? It could be all types of players, couldn’t it? Could be an offensive…

93 Tortorella post-practice

John Tortorella: (I asked him what kind of things the Rangers can do now that they’re home): “Practice, practice. Practice, practice. Who used to say that?” Told it was Allen Iverson, then told that Iverson used it in a different vein … “Put it in the opposite vein of him.…

218 The boys are back in town

The Rangers are home from their European vacation, two losses, two points in hand, and undefeated. They now get an obviously much-needed five days of practice before going to (ugh) Nassau Coliseum Saturday, then to Western Canada. They have to find a left winger for that No. 1 line (if…

181 Rangers-Mighty Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) Yay! Skills competition. Pretty serious lack of skills in this one. Brad Richards lost the puck at center ice, and the winning goal was a complete whiff. 2) The Rangers shouldn’t fight the opponent’s goons unless it’s absolutely necessary. So far they have had two staged fights, and…

We’re underway. Ya boys got a point on the road, blew a lead, caused way-too-early panic, took too many penalties. In other words, situation normal. Quick turnaround with a 1 p.m. road game today vs. the future Stanley Cup runnerup Mighty Ducks in Stockholm. Thoughts: 1) Time of possession in…

Opening Day! That off-season only felt like a couple of years. Will add lineup info as we get it. The guess is that Erik Christensen will be prucha’d. Not sure where Wojtek Wolski plays, or Tim Erixon, for that matter, even with his parents at the game. The King of…
