322 Scary costumes (updated)

There were some ugly ones on my porch last night, but none compared to the Habs’ throwbacks (CP photo). I know I told this Halloween story before, but it’s worth repeating for those who missed it. Remember Scott Fraser, the terribly over-rated, good-skating winger signed for ridiculous, silly, money by…

121 Early Halloween?

I have no idea what the byfuglien happened tonight, either in the Rangers-Wild game or at this blog! No idea. I was at a football game, and when the game was over and I got to my laptop to write my story — poof — tonight’s post and all your…

274 Call of the Wild (Updated)

I told you guys I saw Frank Brown at Yankee Stadium last night and some of you spoke very highly of him as a gifted writer (he is; I almost said “was”). By coincidence, today he wrote a story for NHL.com today on goalies’ masks. This week is the anniversary…

278 Rangers-Isles in review (updated)

I’ll be honest, I only saw some highlights (lowlights?) and the first half of the game on Rangers In 60 (Rangers in less than 30?). So I might be wrong with some of these presumptions. But I’d bet I’m more right than wrong about: 1) Without Gaborik, this lineup looks…

275 Rangers-Islanders

First the news, which is really no news at this point. Gaborik and Brashear are out. Voros and Parenteau are in. Nobody gets prucha’d. Lundqvist starts in goal. ——————– I am at Yankee Stadium, and certainly not complaining tonight because 1) it’s not too cold tonight, so far at least,…

127 Waiting on Gaborik (Updated)

AFTERNOON UPDATE: 12:32 p.m.: Andrew Gross tweeted (Twittered?) that Gaborik is out tonight and Parenteau will play in his place. Also that Brashear will not play again (fourth time in five games). So no prucha for Voros. ——————————- Still waiting word on whether Gaborik will play tonight. If I were…

276 Gaborik not serious (updated)

That’s the official word from the Rangers, who aren’t saying exactly what his (likely knee) injury is. But they are saying it is not related to any of his previous injuries and it is not serious. He didn’t skate today and he will be reevaluated tomorrow. Steve Zipay is reporting…

41 What if Gaborik is hurt?

Let’s start fresh shall we….I was thinking recently, and the decent comments on the last post brought home the point, what happens if Gabby does get hurt in a way that seriously affects his ability to play/ice time etc. He’s obviously had a huge impact on this team and while…

199 Rangers-‘Yotes in review

Actually, not a lot to analyze here. 1) The Rangers, overall, were better as a group on the defensive side of the puck. That was especially so for Staal and Girardi, I thought. 2) Who is that guy in the Redden jersey and what did they do with Wade? 3)…

385 ‘Yotes-Rangers

My friend Zip (who is still free, as in no charge, until Wednesday) is reporting that Brashear is back in, which means Voros gets prucha’d. Also, that Anisimov centers the fourth line between Brashear and Boyle; Callahan is joined by the doghouse boys, Dubinsky and Higgins, Lisin (the former ‘Yote)…

166 Desert Dogs up next

Three straight losses has the Rangers reeling. It’s early, and way too early to panic. But it obviously is weighing on the Rangers, who had won seven in a row — the last three of those just sloppy enough to morph into this downslide. And now John Tortorella is delivering…

81 The Big Whistle, Bill Chadwick (1915-2009)

This is an edited version of a story written by John Halligan, the author and long-time Rangers executive, who passed it along to us: Bill (The Big Whistle) Chadwick, a native New Yorker and the first United States-born official in the National Hockey League and later a popular broadcaster for…

627 Rangers-Canadiens

The Rangers will go with the same lineup tonight, which means Brashear is scratched due to soreness, not Prucha’d (healthy scratch). Expect mucho line-juggling after the two straight losses, and the struggles of the second-liners, Drury, Callahan and Higgins (although the captain somehow escapes being singled out by the coach).…

123 Gotta Hab it

The Rangers go to Montreal for a game they absolutely need to have. Well, maybe not. But they sure could use it after two straight home losses. I remember in the pre-Messier days, which also happened to be the Montreal Forum days, when this was as automatic a loss as…

259 Devils-Rangers in review

I thought the game against the Devils was much, much better than the one against the Sharks, and if you really look with an unbiased eye (I know that’s probably not happening here) it might have been, as an overall effort, better than some of the sloppy wins. Here’s my…
