270 We’re live at noon

There’s a lot to discuss today regarding last night’s debacle and the sudden turning of this series, so we’ll start it here, and then at noon Jane and I will host a live video chat. Hope you can join us with questions and comments. I was headed from the pressbox…

111 About those rally sticks…

a) Apparently they were ineffective in actually “rallying” the Rangers and b) The cool little blue lighting element can be extracted from the sticks and c) Thrown onto the ice when you are really upset at the end of a 4-0 shutout in the first home game of the playoff…

1040 Game 3 … next (updated)

Not much new here at MSG, where I can already hear John Amirante rehearsing his national anthem at 4:45 p.m. I’m sure I won’t be able to hear it very well at 7:05 or so, when the balloons start falling from the “Blue Seats.” ———————————- On Saturday I stepped out…

205 Alex the Grate (updated)

Tiny tempest at the morning skate today, although nothing is minor during a playoff series. Here’s the entire take (and the photo) from the D.C. Sports Bog written by Dan Steinberg: “A few minutes ago, all the media members buzzed quietly when Alex Ovechkin came out to watch the Rangers’…

194 Update from (barely) practice

First things first: Chris Drury was one of four Rangers on the ice during an optional practice (with Blair Betts, Colton Orr and Aaron Voros). He skated fine. It’s obviously a hand/wrist/arm injury, and he should play Game 3. ————————– John Tortorella talked for a while. Some highlights: “You’ve got…

136 Block The Red (updated)

Sort of ripping off the Capitals’ slogan with that headline, but that is what the Rangers did in Game 2. They blocked everything. OK, Alex Ovechkin hit the crossbar and went away cursing, but everything else was stopped before it got to King Henrik Lundqvist or it was gobbled up…

130 About that 2-0 lead

I didn’t want to put up a new post until we topped 1,000 comments on the game thread … but it was slowing down, and anyway, this will give us a chance to break 1,000 later in the series, or in the next series, or in the Conference finals or…

983 Game 2 and a giant opportunity (updated)

Get ready for the AO love-fest. And, if you’re honest, Alex Ovechkin deserves all the attention. Even most of you guys here were praising him … until he became the playoff enemy. The update on Chris Drury is that there is no update. He’s a gametime decision, which means he’ll…

117 I’ll be on WFAN later

My interview with WFAN overnight host Marc Malusis, a Rangers fan, will be played in the 2 a.m. hour for those nightowls among you. ——————————– It did my heart good to see Sam Weinman here today. I wonder if we could get him back. Anyway, I was out damaging the…

121 Guest blogger: Sam Weinman

Jane here to introduce our special guest blogger, a (former) hockey writer who looms large over this blog even though he doesn’t live here anymore. Ladies and gentleman, the Great Sam Weinman: I am grateful to Carpie and Jane for letting me swing back by the old blog, a corner…

46 They should be playing tonight!

It’s going to be 70 degrees today, and it just happens to be my only “day off” this week (can’t you tell I’m off, as I sit here and type?). So I have arranged a meeting today with Mr. Titleist and Mr. Callaway. Before I go and slog through that…

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…
