422 Game 2: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Are you really surprised that this series is 1-1? Seriously? I’m not at all. I’m never, ever surprised that any series is 1-1 after two. Heck, maybe you should be surprised it isn’t 2-0 Penguins. 2) So let’s get this streak thing right out of the way. Ya…

536 Game 1: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Not declaring anything yet. But if the Rangers can go into that building against that team, not have a 60-minute effort, and still come out of there with the win, well, maybe they’re going to be fine after all in this series. Because during this game, when they…

247 Rangers are good; just not good enough to beat these birds

Here’s my column from The Journal News and lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Same state, different birds. The Pittsburgh Penguins are not, by any stretch of anybody’s imagination, the Philadelphia Flyers. The Rangers are going to be involved in a test far above and beyond what they’ve endured the last two…

601 Game 6: Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, the best part for you guys and for the Rangers is that they don’t lead the series. Because since 2009, while they’ve been lousy when leading a series — a record 12 straight losses with the series lead — they’ve been pretty darn good when tied or…
