Ha ha! Here’s a real challenge! Go wild. Clean slate for game. Bless you all for chat today pre-game. Now go!
But you already knew that. Hey, there has to be a headline up there, so unless anybody’s got a better idea, I’m sticking with the old news. For those just joining us, though, Donald Brashear is reportedly sore and may be given the night off—especially since the Rangers will be... Read More →
Rangers vs. Los Angeles Kings tonight? I thought L.A. folded when Gretzky left. Actually, apparently the Kings are pretty good this season, or at least pretty good so far. We’ll see. We know the Rangers have been better than pretty good so far, and it certainly hasn’t hurt that ex-King... Read More →
Some day-after thoughts: 1) In an Olympic year there will be lots of back-to-backs and three-in-four nights. So far the Rangers have won the second game of both of their back-to-backs, and tomorrow they play their second third-in-four; they won the previous third-in-four. Conditioning? 2) It was inevitable that Colton... Read More →

Getting set for the Leaves vs. the Rangers (gramatically correct “Leaves”). Same lineup as last night except Lundqvist. Had a chance to ask Tortorella what has surprised him so far this season. “I wouldn’t say surprised,” he said. “You have to be happy with how the kids are playing. We... Read More →
Some (late) morning-after thoughts: 1) You already started the discussion this morning: What do you root for if Orr and Brashear have a tangle tonight? I’m sure Orr will be cheered when he hits the ice. You can’t possibly have a problem with that, right? 2) How about Avery. He... Read More →

So Avery will probably play fourth line, which is a good idea to ease him back in with an MCL sprain. Plus he can muck it up with Brashear there for reinforcements and really be extra annoying. And Tortorella needs some abrasiveness late in the game, he can move Avery... Read More →
The Rangers have played four games, and won three in a row, with the same 19 players. But today they expect two lineup changes. Sean Avery goes in and somebody—Aaron Voros or Enver Lisin, we suspect—comes out. And Steve Valiquette plays goal to give Henrik Lundqvist a breather in the... Read More →
You’ve probably seen by now that Dany Heatley scored on a penalty shot to complete a hat trick last night. Just to remind us, whether you like him or not, whether you think he’s good or a team or not, that he’s a pretty special talent. But I can’t help... Read More →
I know a lot of people in and around hockey speculated and suspected this, but now it’s out, this sad story about Theo Fleury, who will spill all the beans in his new book. ————————— Also, Evgeny Grachev was reassigned to Hartford today. Me, I’m going to dry off.
Heave ho, three in a row. Lots going on with this team so early. 1) If John Tortorella really was Mike Keenan-esque, he’d be in Glen Sather’s office today telling him to get rid of Rozsival or I’ll just bury him. I don’t think Torterella is that way, though. Rozsival... Read More →
