322 Rangers, Islanders look to re-heat a long-cooled rivalry

My story from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – Wait, the Rangers and Islanders have a rivalry? Unless you’re over a certain age – and have a good memory – you might not be aware of that. Because, let’s face it, what was once white-hot and always bubbling, has really…

317 Rangers-Sharks in review

Thoughts: 1) To put it another way: In their last 14 games, the Rangers have won two fewer than the Giants, Jets and Knicks combined won all season. This streak has gotten ridiculous, not just in pure numbers, but also in where they’re winning, how they’re winning, and how everybody…

70 Rangers Report’s Festivus book contest winners announced

The Rangers play the Jumbo Soft Shelled Shrimps tonight in San Jose, which reminds me of Neil Smith. As the GM of the Rangers he was so often accused of assembling Edmonton East, collecting old Oilers. To which Smith bristled, “Who should I get, bleepin’ San Jose Sharks?” Anyway, sorry…

370 Rangers-Kings in review

Thoughts: 1) This is just such a different team now, with its intimidating speed and ability to score goals. Three, four, or more on any given night against any opponent. Down 2-0, most Rangers teams over the last, oh, 21 years or so, were done. Game over. Honest Darryl Sutter…

262 Rangers-Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, that was a fun game to watch. Strong, physical game with some great pace at times. Anaheim is about four miles better than Buffalo. But the Rangers won this game, were the better team most of the night. Nothing flukey about it. They’re for real. Not yet…
