765 It’s Go Time!

Game 12. Fifth of a six-game homestand. Back to playing teams from Canada (boy, there’s been a lot of two-anthem games so far). First of 16 straight vs. Eastern teams. The Rangers begin back-to-backs at home, having won their last two games over Western powers (San Jose and Anaheim). De-Whaled,…

370 Rangers-Mighties in review

Thoughts: 1) Just because it tends to get so hysterical (and I don’t mean funny, though it can be that, too) here, I wondered in the comments last night, at 1-1, were you willing to say this was a good effort or if it sucked from head to toe, had the…

5 Post-game interviews

Some post-game stuff. Henrik Lundqvist sounded relieved to finally win a shootout. Marian Gaborik was glad to get the call in the breakaway contest. John Tortorella knew Gaborik’s awful career stats in the skills competition. Tortorella also talked about the top four Rangers defensemen, and spoke honestly about Jeff Woywitka…

576 It’s Go Time!

Game 11. Fourth of a six-game homestand. Rematch of the classic Game 2 breakaway contest in Stockholm (ok, maybe not a classic). Henrik Lundqvist back in goal against the Mighties. Otherwise, same lineup as Monday’s Halloween win over Soft Joe and the Sharks. Which means Sean Avery is prucha’d. Mike…

42 Tortorella pre-game press conference

This was one of the most boring pre-gamers ever, because nobody has any questions to ask. Nothing changed between today and yesterday, when we talked to the coach, and nothing changed between yesterday and the day before, other than Sean Avery’s arrival and the idea that he won’t play tonight…

102 Snow and Sean, so no chat today

Let me try to explain. The football playoff game I was supposed to cover yesterday was postponed to today because that October snow storm left so many areas without power, so much snow on the fields, and forced so many schools to remain closed. So, I have to go to…

364 Sean Avery: New York Ranger again

Sean Avery, soon to be officially recalled after clearing re-entry waivers (in other words, none of the other 29 teams/coaches had any interest in him at 1/4 of his salary). Now, does he play Thursday, or do the Rangers go with their same lineup after their best game of the…

115 Rangers-Sharks in review

I don’t know which game was the Rangers’ second best of the season, but it wasn’t even close to this one. And not just because of the score … if they played the exact same game and, say, lost in a shootout, this still was their best of the year…

58 Post-game interviews

Some interesting stuff. Brandon Dubinsky and John Tortorella talking about Dubinsky’s progress the last couple of games, especially away from the puck; Tortorella talking about how hard it will be to change his lineup to make room for the guy who could be called up tomorrow, I forgot his name.…

692 It’s Go Time!

Game 10. Third of a six-game homestand. Last game, perhaps, without Sean Avery. First in the last seven against a non-Canadian team. Just full of big info here, right? Mike Rupp (knee) and Marc Staal (concussion symptoms) remain out. Artem Anisimov is OK after that hit by Zenon Konopka Saturday.…

82 Tortorella pre-game press conference

Here are the highlights about why the Rangers decided to re-call Sean Avery (or at least, put him on re-entry waivers). Will have audio in a few minutes right below this: John Tortorella: Why Avery now? “Rupper. Rupper has a lot to do with this. We’re concerned about this. So…

290 Start the countdown on Avery’s return

The Rangers, as expected, placed Sean Avery on re-entry waivers at noon today. That means any team in the NHL can claim him before noon tomorrow. Not likely. Just to clear it up, if Avery is claimed, the Rangers are stuck with his cap hit, whereas if he is in…
