397 It’s Go Time!

Game 10. Islanders at Rangers. First meeting of the season in the luke-warm rivalry. (Let’s face it, the Rangers have much bigger rivalries with the Devils, Flyers, Penguins and even Capitals right now). Brian Boyle, one of the “scared or tentative” players coach John Tortorella mentioned after the loss in…

33 John Tortorella pre-game interview

The coach had some pretty good insights tonight on Brian Boyle and some of his other top players, including the goaltender and, without naming names, Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards. He also spoke about replacing the middle of the lineup lost over the off-season. John Tortorella:

83 Post-practice interviews: Tortorella, Callahan, McDonagh

Ryan Callahan skated with contact today, and he’s not ruling out anything yet … but would not say whether he could play tomorrow (he might). Dan Girardi did not skate and there was no update on his condition (“banged up” still being the official prognosis). John Tortorella had some interesting…

198 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) I really wonder who John Tortorella’s tentative, scared guys are. Marian Gaborik? Michael Del Zotto (he doesn’t look tentative to me, but he made some woeful mistakes)? Brad Richards, who was demoted off the No. 1 line and terrible on the power play? Brian Boyle, who except for…

652 It’s Go Time!

Game 9. Rangers at Devils. Rematch of the Eastern Conference finals, and the first meeting since the Devils won Game 6 in OT as the Rangers did snow angels around Henrik Lundqvist’s crease. Both teams are 4-4, but the Devils have three Bettman Bonus Points. Lundqvist starts in goal against…

114 Post-practice interview: Tortorella

Two funny things. First, somebody’s phone went off during John Tortorella’s presser. That’s always good for a laugh. Then, after he was finished, he talked about the Super Bowl and laughed that Phil Simms “spent an hour” saying the blackout wouldn’t affect anybody and then all of a sudden there…

30 Post-practice interviews: Lundqvist, Callahan, Kreider

Ryan Callahan and Chris Kreider wore yellow no-contact jerseys at practice today. Callahan is still a while away from returning, Kreider probably will not play tomorrow at Newark, and he sounded like he didn’t want to say anything until he was/is told he is ready to return. Dan Girardi took…

OK, time for our annual Boneheads Super Bowl party! As I’ve told you, I’m having a really hard time with this game. Torn between rooting against that cretin and criminal Ray Lewis (and fearing the disgusting love-fest that will follow if he and Baltimore win) and rooting for Ray Rice…

Thoughts: 1) There’s going to be a lot of obvious stuff said in the next bunch of paragraphs because there was nothing subtle here. It was very obvious. For example, the Rangers had the puck for a lot of this game, more than in any other game this season. Did…
