166 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) Men vs. Boys. I am not 100 percent convinced the Rangers lost this game because of the way they were manhandled by the Bruins, but they were manhandled, and I am pretty certain that any best-of-seven series against a team like that is going to look like the…

125 Rangers-Panthers in review

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah! Thoughts: 1) Alain Vigneault made an off-the-cuff remark about the old saying, “You never critique a victory.” Mike Keenan said that all the time … but they will then dissect it, because they must, because that’s what they do. And because coaches, good coaches, know…

533 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) Wow, just too, too easy for the home team. Did a lot of guys on defense, and the guy in goal, have a bad game? Sure did. Not that there’s any shame or blame on a goalie in giving up three breakaway goals, but Henrik Lundqvist got beaten…

314 Rangers-Predators in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers, with their new system, defend. They succeed because/if/when they defend. I keep going back to what Alain Vigneault said on the last homestand when I asked him about the way they defend, and he said a big part of that is taking care of the puck…

803 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) The goalkeeper. Where’s his get-away car? Because he committed a crime against the Stars, grand theft. Wow. This could have been over early, and would have been a dreadful way to lose, out of the gate like that, especially after losing three of four close ones. And, after…
