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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
