482 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Even when you’ve been doing this as long as I have, and you’re sitting there writing about what an awful game you’re watching, sometimes you hesitate. I ask myself, is it just because the crowd is dead that it seems awful? Is it just because one team is…

91 John Tortorella pre-game interview

Here it is, all 35 seconds worth … which was predictable. If he’s not going to answer injury questions, then why the byfuglien should we have anything else to ask him on a night like this? John Tortorella:

Prust was asked if he read where John Tortorella said he is just another player in another uniform, and Prust said, “well, he’s just another coach.” He was laughing when he said it. Brandon Prust:

224 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Remember last year when the Rangers were almost always the more physical team, the team that won more battles and dictated play, and often the faster team? I thought this was a game that kind of reminded me of last year more than any other this season. 2)…

In case you missed it, Rick Nash will skate in warmups, as will Chris Kreider. Then a decision will be made. Which, to me, says you can eliminate “concussion” from the speculation. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal. John Tortorella:

231 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron. Let’s talk about fairness here. Because it isn’t fair if every time this guy plays and the Rangers don’t win, that it’s his fault, or the fault of the decision to play him. He’s not going to go 8-0 or 10-0 or whatever. He’s 1-0-1. Three…
