564 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) Another staged fight to start the game. Whatever floats your boat, I guess. Maybe it’s hypocritical, but to me they don’t seem as senseless when it’s archrivals playing. I did think Rupp had some good, solid hits, though he wasn’t credited with any, officially. 2) I liked the…

187 Rangers-Coyotes in review

Well, that was about as wild as it gets. Not one for the archives in terms of how to play, or how to win. But, wow, was that a finish. I am racking the rusty rolodex between my ears trying to remember a similar game, and I’m sure there was…

394 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers don’t usually get out hit and outmuscled, but they sure did in the first period and they definitely did on the first goal … even if there was an illegal pick there. I thought they lost about four physical battles on that shift. 2) And from…

128 Rangers-Stars in review

This was the lead to my story in The Journal News and on LoHud.com about last night’s game: Get ready, hockey fans. The NHL is going to shove more nights like this down your throats with realignment. More non-conference games, more games with zero playoff implications. Less passion. Quieter arenas.…
