601 Into the Igloo

I was actually thinking abut this during the third period Thursday night, and now even more so as the Rangers prep to face Evgeni Malkin (notice I list him first) and Sid the Kid (a.k.a. Cindy, in the Festivus blog). Where does Kovalchuk place among the best offensive players in…

236 Rage, rage against the dying of the light

If you wanted an idea of how rotten last night’s 5-4 shootout loss to the Thrashers was, all you need to know is that Rangers coach John Tortorella couldn’t keep it together for more than 30 seconds before storming out of the postgame. “I thought we sucked right on through…

713 They go south, I go north

Don’t forget to write those Thank You letters to the Florida Panthers, who are making it awfully simple for the Rangers (and Montreal Canadiens, and others) to make the playoffs. The Cats’ collapse last night leaves your NYR in a good spot, up five with eight to play, no games…

98 Sauer debut, plus Thrashers

When the Rangers lost to the Thrashers on Feb. 3, it was one of the lowest points of the current season. It was Adam Graves night, and a host of Ranger legends had taken the ice at the start of the evening to bring back the memory of that 1994…

46 Yes, that’s a good win

The previous post suggested the Wild game was dull or boring, and even the coach of the NYR said it was hard to watch. And it was. That doesn’t make it anything but a good victory for your Blueshirts. Maybe a great victory. Maybe the one that proves their mettle,…

64 After the 2-1 snoozer of a victory …

Somebody wanted me to show some, uh, guts and ask John Tortorella about the power play. Well, I was about to do that, but I was beaten to the question. “It wasn’t good,” the coach said. “But I’m not going to run it down with you. We’ve got to work…

405 Tortorella live (or slightly delayed)

I asked coach John Tortorella, now a month and a day into his new job, where he is in terms of knowledge of the players. On his first day, he said he was at zero. “I feel very comfortable right now in understand where some people will succeed and where…

81 Rozsival: Not a major injury

Apparently not, anyway.  Rozsival had an MRI this afternoon and the team has announced he will be out just 7-10 days. Here is the official announcement from the team: MICHAL ROZSIVAL SIDELINED SEVEN TO 10 DAYS             New York, March 23, 2009 — New York Rangers President…

90 Updated: Sauer called up

Defenseman Michael Sauer was recalled from Hartford this morning, which means that Michal Rozsival is not ready to go for tomorrow’s game against Minnesota. Rozsival, who had arthroscopic hip surgery last year, was injured in the second period of last night’s 2-1 loss to Ottawa at The Garden. After the…

22 Rangers lose, 2-1

The Rangers had just four shots on goal in five power plays and, as somebody said after the game, you aren’t going to win many games if you only score a goal. Ottawa won 2-1 after Ryan Shannon gave the Senators the winning goal with 1:09 gone in the third,…

104 Rangers vs. Ottawa

Henrik Lundqvist will start in goal tonight when the Rangers host the Senators (31-30-10) at 7 p.m. at Madison Square Garden. John Tortorella will use the same lineup as his did last night in the 5-3 win over the Sabres. The Rangers (38-26-8) in seventh place in the Eastern Conference…

77 Happy Birthday, Ryan

For reals, Ryan Callahan scored two goals on his birthday, No. 18 and 19 on the season as he turned 24. “Personally, it was a good way to spend my birthday,” Callahan said. “It was a good birthday gift at the end, the empty netter.” He joked that when he…

192 Sabres vs. Rangers

Madison Square Garden needed about two hours to convert a basketball court into an ice hockey rink for tonight’s matchup with the Sabres (34-29-8, 76 pts.). The PSAL boys and girls basketball championships were held this afternoon. A win tonight would effectively mean that Buffalo won’t be able to keep…

41 Breit idea

So thanks to Nasty 1’s question I got to talking to people about watches, and found out that when Henrik Lundqvist signed his last contract, he gave the six Rangers trainers Breitling watches, the Chrono Superocean series. (From some Googling I see they are about $3K each.) Lundqvist included a…

134 Up next: Sabres

(Shhh…. Playoffs.) Rangers coach John Tortorella doesn’t want to hear about it. He is trying to get this team to focus on the Sabres — on the first period specifically — and doesn’t want to talk about sixth spot or ninth or whatever is happening in the horse race. But…

196 The System (updated)

The Rangers practiced today in Greenburgh, in preparation for back-to-back games this weekend. It was pretty intense, a lot of sprinting and pushups, with some line work at the end. That kind of workout seems to be assistant coach Jim Schoenfeld’s specialty. Coach John Tortorella said having three days between…

204 Had to Hab it

Thought I’d post early in the morning because I have a lot to do today, and because I know a lot of you guys start blog-surging with the roosters. Don’t get used to it, though. I’m a late sleeper. Some thoughts on the victory last night: 1) Was that really…

530 I told you it was a good move …

I was the first aboard the “Bring Avery Back” bandwagon. I told you all, but you wouldn’t listen, that Sean Avery would be great for this team, would play not only like an all-star but also a captain. I told you he would turn this team around and single-handedly pull…

102 Top ‘O the mornin’ to you

Or afternoon. Whatever. Happy St. Paddy’s Day. More than corned beef and cabbage, the Rangers could use a Leprechaun or some plain old good luck tonight in Montreal, where they meet a team in direct competiton for a playoff spot. The Rangers and Les Habs are tied for sixth (Montreal…
