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…

56 OK, you hairy, manly men …

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…

78 Torts bucking for a beer commercial?

John Tortorella channelled his inner Jim Mora today when somebody asked him “If the Rangers make the playoffs do you feel good about your team going in?” “Don’t ask me that,” Tortorella said. “We’re not in. You’re asking the wrong guy the wrong question, because we’re not in. We have…

79 Changes coming … for us

Just want to give you guys a heads-up. We’re trying to improve the blog here and prevent the kind of system slow-downs and/or crashes we’ve had, for example, at the trade deadline and on our monster Yankees blog on Opening Day … So we’re going to try something, hopefully as…

63 No more stress? Yeah, right

If you think last night’s win assured anything, think again. Because it’s not as automatic as you might think that the Rangers are going to the playoffs. See Philly is still in a battle for the fourth spot and home-ice against Carolina, or possibly Pittsburgh. Yes, the Flyers clinched a…

47 Montreal, check. Now Philly

The Rangers can clinch with a win over Philly on Thursday. The 3-1 win over Montreal and an assist from the Flyers with a 2-1 win over Florida means the Rangers just need one out of the next two games to mathematically eliminate the Panthers. Here are some post game…

419 Montreal tonight

This is make or break for the Rangers tonight, no other way to put it. Nik Antropov (left knee) is playing, which Rangers coach John Tortorella said earlier tonight. Montreal is 41-28-10 and in seventh place in the standings, while the Rangers are 40-30-9 and in eighth. With 89 points,…

112 Quick update off practice

Keep scrolling down to read Carp’s post about what is at stake tonight against visiting Montreal, but there was a little news off of this morning’s optional skate at the Rangers practice facility. Nik Antropov skated and will probably play tonight although neither he nor coach John Tortorella explicitly said…

71 It’s all right here

It couldn’t have fallen any better for the Rangers than it has. They have won one of their last five games and yet they can still make the playoffs — still, even, finish seventh. But the losing must stop tonight. It must. Seventh-place Montreal lost to Ottawa last night. Not…

381 Who’s on D? (updated)

I got to thinking the other day when a bunch of you guys were rattling off all the bad defensemen in recent Rangers history. How many good ones have they had? Not many. Not many at all. So I thought of it this way: You’d probably take all or any…

197 Avery Rule 2

So apparently referees and linesmen can call penalties from video replay. Actually, they can’t by rule or bylaw. But it appears that is exactly what they did when Sean Avery tapped Tim Thomas in the back of the hat Saturday in Boston. And apparently, rules apply to Avery, but when…
