185 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Happy anniversary! It’s now officially 74 years with one Stanley Cup since the Rangers won it on April 13, 1940. 2) So it’s Rangers-Flyers like the good old days. So light up the Empire State Building in orange and black in honor of Mr. Snider. Sure has been…

458 Rangers-Sabres in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, that turned out well for ya boys. Rangers win late, Philly loses in regulation. The Rangers clinch the No. 2 seed in the Metropolitan — which, by the way, turned out to have been the better of the two divisions in the East, IMO — and will…

382 Sabres at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 81. Buffalo Baby Buffaloes at Rangers. It’s pretty simple with two games left. Well, actually, it’s not so simple thanks to Bettman Losers’ Points, Bettman Bonus Points, Breakaway Contests they sometimes hold after the hockey teams finishing playing the hockey game, ROWs, non-ROWs, and this new jackwagon playoff…

554 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) That’s a good win for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is that Philly and Columbus won and that collar would be getting a little tight if the Rangers lost. Also given the poor start against yet another — God, how many are there? –…

Game 80. Hurricanes at Rangers. ICYMI, ya boys clinched a playoff berth with the Devils’ loss to Calgary last night. They still have plenty at stake as they go for a 2-3 seed series and avoid a wild-card. The Rangers’ magic number for clinching that is four — any…
