Just found out, Henrik Lundqvist showed up at the rink sick. So Martin Biron will play tonight.
From the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS CELEBRATE TEAM’S 85th ANNIVERSARY AT ROCKEFELLER CENTER Top Current Players and Ranger Legends Unveil Team’s New Heritage Jersey – Friday November 12th New York, November 10, 2010 – The 2010-11 hockey season marks the New York Rangers 85th anniversary of the franchise. In honor… Read More →
My fingers are so frozen I can barely type this. Martin Biron starts in goal against the Blues tonight, his first since that subpar outing against Atlanta. Ryan Callahan returns after sitting out the game against the Devils with a sore neck. Derek Boogaard and Evgeny Grachev remain in the… Read More →
Coming off that loss at Philly, the Rangers go right back into the archrival fire at the Rock. As you know by now, Ryan Callahan—the de facto acting captain—will not play after that hit by Timmonen last night. It appeared he hurt his neck or shoulder. Also, Martin Brodeur is… Read More →
Rangers-Flys for the first time this season, at the Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes (why can’t debris fall on their heads?). Not much more needs to be said. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal (against Sergei Bobrovsky, 6-2-0, 2.39). Derek Boogaard back in (duh). Todd White and Matt Gilroy… Read More →
The Rangers and Maple Leaves (correct spelling) see each other for the third time already this season, each winning on the road. As for lineup changes, I have no idea. I’m at a football game, not in Toronto. So I don’t know of Boogaard (hand infection) can play … this… Read More →
Don’t have time to give you much more than this … then again you guys don’t usually need more than this. Same lineup as in Toronto, except Lundqvist in goal, with Biron backing up (wonder if Biron might get the nod vs. Devils tomorrow?) That means Sauer is in again,... Read More →
Does it strike you odd that the Rangers are in Boston for a Saturday night game? Isn’t it almost always a matinee? I’m glad. I have another football playoff game today—assuming I thaw out. Played golf yesterday and actually got hit my snow/sleet for a while, had winds whipping around… Read More →
Hockey night in Canada. Start of a big early-season stretch (three in four nights; six in 10) and an early-season test. I suspect Henrik Lundqvist starts tonight in Toronto, and Martin Biron gets the nod Saturday in Boston, Lundqvist back in Sunday vs. Devils. That’s my educated guess, nothing more…. Read More →

At least what it looks like from this morning’s practice: Frolov-Christensen-Gaborik Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan Fedotenko-Stepan-Avery Boogaard-Boyle-Prust Staal-Girardi Del Zotto-Rozsival The third D pair will be two of these three, obviously: Gilroy, Eminger, Sauer. Lundqvist-Biron Pruchas: White and Kennedy and the extra D-man. Don’t get used to this. You guys know I’m not… Read More →

Before we get to the quotes, here’s the news (as I Tweeted earlier; imagine, I’m Tweeting now?): Vinny Prospal will be shut down for a couple of weeks to rest his right knee, which continues to swell when he skates. After exams today, team doctors met with Prospal and John… Read More →
By the way, Happy October! That means hockey season. Here’s what I suspect will be the lines tonight: (Imagine, me talking lines?) Frolov-Christensen-Gaborik Avery-Stepan-Fedotenko Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan Boogaard-Boyle-Prust D-men (in no particular order): Del Zotto, Girardi, Staal, Eminger, McDonagh, Gilroy. Lundqvist in goal. See youse during the game. And after.
Some thoughts: 1) I am really starting to like the “Tenkos”. Ruslan Fedotenko is very hard on the puck and away from it, has some skill, some creativity, is a strong skater. I still don’t know who he replaces if he makes the team, but I think he could be… Read More →
