127 Some Game 2 stats (updated)

Because we had brought it up last night, and because John Dellapina, late of the NY Daily News and currently of the National Hockey League and a Rangers Report reader, used to laugh at me for keeping such stats myself, he just dropped me some stats on Game 2: According…

936 Here we go: Game 1

Before gametime, with everything that could possibly be discussed already discussed: I have covered every one of the four all-time Rangers-Capitals series, and some things stick out — in addition to the fact that all four were played at the old, dark, dank dump of an arena known as the…

159 Rangers chat at noon

A little more than nine hours until the Rangers take ice in D.C., but in the meantime Carp and I will be talking about the game during a noon video chat today at www.lohud.com/rangersreportlive. Grab a sandwich and join us. We’ll try to help you get through the meaningless hours…

80 The wait continues

It’s only Tuesday. Nothing we can do about that. The playoffs don’t start until Wednesday. I’m just checking in, and I figured I’ll give you my picks and get you all angry with me and then I’ll go away and let you cool off. Actually, Jane is going to practice…

128 Staal vs. Ovechkin … updated

First, the main news out of practice. Drury did not skate for the fourth day in a row and is listed as day-to-day. I thought originally it was a leg injury. He did indeed limp off during Thursday’s game, and tested something with a little twirl on the ice during…

131 It starts Wednesday (updated)

Don’t know which is the best part for the Rangers — going into the playoffs on a three-game winning streak? Scoring four goals? Scoring on the power play? Or finally beating a good team on the road? Whatever, time to move on to Washington, starting Wednesday. (ps, sorry about the…

98 Game 82 … and no captain

I thought Chris Drury got banged up against the Flyers the other night, and it turns out he did. He didn’t skate Friday or Saturday and he’s scratched tonight with some sort of leg issue, I think. I definitely remember him limping off after one shift. So Nik Antropov will…

76 So this is meaningless

All of the first-round matchups in the East are set: Boston-Montreal Washington-Rangers Devils-Carolina Philadelphia-Pittsburgh Here is the Rangers-Capitals season series, although that means about as much as tonight’s game in Philly for the Rangers — zero: 11/8 @WAS L 1-3 (goals: Voros). 12/23 MSG  L 4-5 OT (goals: Naslund, Rozsival,…

83 Waiting for Game 82 … and 83 (updated)

Some rainy, holiday-weekend, pre-playoff housecleaning: First, you know that the Rangers are tied with Montreal, each with 93 points, but the Rangers have the tiebreaker with one more victory (42-41). The Habs play at home against Pittsburgh tonight. If Montreal loses, everything is settled as far as the Rangers are…

Here we go with the playoff beards. Personally, mine isn’t going to start until after I shave Easter morning. You can start them whenever you want, and some of you surely had a head start. Whatever. First of all, Sal the barber at Sal’s Hair Station, located at 132 W.…

22 Tortorella on WFAN

Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts are scheduled to have John Tortorella on live at 12:25 p.m. The Rangers are having an optional skate at the moment. I’d bet that Tortorella will be more pleasant on the radio than he is in his press conferences. ——————– If you missed it, you…

22 One to go

Heading over to practice in a little bit, but I just wanted to put up a few day-after (read: leftover) thoughts and remarks. Chris Drury has surely come up big the last two games, and I know the level of love for him here still isn’t high. But the guy…

74 They’re in … and they’re seventh

Not a bad way to do it, the hard way, with a big, huge third period after some shaky (to say the least) moments. To do it protecting a one-goal lead against a good team, with Henrik Lundqvist playing out of his mind, with the captain playing a second straight…

463 Game Of The Century!

OK, so perhaps that is overstating it but tonight’s matchup with the Flyers is for all the marbles. Yes, technically they can still get into the playoffs even if they lose tonight, but clearly sewing up the berth with a game to spare avoids that sour air of desperation in…
