As you’ve seen/heard by now, Brad Richards is a healthy scratch tonight, and is certainly done as a Ranger (unless they somehow come back in this series, maybe?) … He will be bought out after the season, the Rangers paying him $24 million over 14 years as a parting gift… Read More →
Stanley Cup playoffs
Brad Richards, who less than two years ago signed a nine-year, $60 million free agent contract to become a Ranger, will now be an ex-Ranger. Richards was informed by his long-time ally and coach John Tortorella this morning that he will be a healthy scratch for Game 4 against Boston… Read More →

Ooops. Sorry, I forgot to post this one earlier.
Here is John Tortorella’s post-practice press conference, in which he spoke about reaching a new level of effort, about the loss of Anton Stralman, about how the series has gone so far, etc.
The Powe interview has to do with his being part of the 2010 Philly team that came back from 0-3 against Boston to win that playoff series.
More to follow later, including video of John Tortorella’s presser, and an interview with Darroll Powe, who probably won’t play tomorrow, but who was part of the Philadelphia team that came back from 0-3 to beat Boston in the 2010 playoffs.
Save your breath some of you, and stop praying that Darren Dreger’s speculation on the radio might be true. John Tortorella is not getting fired in a 48-game season when two of his three best skaters played like garbage and the team won a playoff round and sure hasn’t quit;... Read More →
I didn’t get the recorder in there on time with the media horde, but Brian Boyle’s interview, when I got in there, began with him completely blaming himself for the Rangers’ lack of possession, because “I can’t win a freakin’ faceoff … just terrible.” He was 4 of 21 in… Read More →

Here’s my story from practice today, for The Journal News and LoHud.com (it’s the unedited version, so please excuse any typos). By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – The last time the Rangers needed to win two in a row at home, Henrik Lundqvist allowed six goals in two victories. The last… Read More →
Gotta tell you, I didn’t think the Rangers could do the 0-2 trick against Washington, so I’m not saying “no way,” but I really don’t get the feeling that this Boston team is going to lose four of five. I think these Bruins are better than Washington, play a style… Read More →
Must win? Not yet. But you probably don’t want to play with those matches again, right. The Rangers came back from 0-2 for the second time in team history against Washington, so you really shouldn’t figure that can happen again, right? I don’t think the Rangers are dead at 0-2,... Read More →

The results are unofficial, because I always wait 24 hours to see if anybody has any protests about my tabulations. But, according to my calculations, Mike S is our first-round contest winner, the only entry with all eight first-round series winners correct. Nine others had seven of the eight series… Read More →
Game 1 wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I expected it to be a little meaner, and I though the Bruins would have more surges, and I expected the Rangers to play more along the walls. Actually, I thought, the Rangers moved the puck pretty freely, didn’t forecheck… Read More →
