50 Dirty dozen

At this point, maybe we can throw out that 6-0 game against the Flyers as the aberration.  Because it’s 12 games now, with that being the only regulation loss. And why? Because John Tortorella scratched Wade Redden and Ales Kotalik, demoted Chris Drury to the fourth line and later even…

279 It’s Bo (as in Boston) time!

In the old days, this would have been a classic matchup. It always was when the Rangers went to Boston, usually for a Saturday matinee, back when they played at the old, rat-and-roach infested Boston Garden. The Garden rink was smaller than regulation, and while plenty of people complained about…

215 Good loss? Bad loss?

Is there ever a differentiation? Is every loss the end of the world: trade everybody, fire everybody, shoot/stab/tattoo/scalp everybody? I appreciate the emotional attachment you guys have, and the investment you make in these games, but seriously, that last night was not a loss. It was a tie. And not…

335 It’s go time (Hot ‘lanta style)!

Rookie goalie Chad Johnson gets his first NHL start tonight, after Henrik Lundqvist started 17 in a row and 24 of the last 25. In an Olympic year, you can only say, “It’s about time.” Johnson got two NHL periods in relief of Lundqvist in the 6-0 loss to Philly…

156 Many games, points, questions

This sure is a confusing time in Rangersland. John Tortorella was saying the other day that he’s looking at the positives, and didn’t really get the negatives, about this little streak. And, well, that’s his job. But it also is at least partially reality. Since that debacle against the Islanders…

94 More post-game stuff

Here are a few more quotes from tonight’s post-game: Sean Avery: “Certainly I’m happy with the game and the way that I played, but If I start doing this on a consistent basis, then it’s something to get happy about.” What was different for you: “I was getting paid by…

485 It’s go time (and you already knew that)!

This is what an old newspaper guy like me hates about the internet. I am here to write a column for tomorrow’s paper on Sean Avery playing against the Stars team that hated him (unless something outrageous happens in the game). But I was in Tortorella’s press conference this evening…

72 The fine line of Avery

With Dallas in town, there’s a lot of attention on Sean Avery tonight. So here are some comments from John Tortorella’s pregame press conference, regarding Avery:  On whether tonight’s opponent could affect Avery’s play: “That’s so far gone, and it should be gone. I think Sean’s done so much due…

So now the Rangers get the good teams — Boston, Dallas, Atlanta, Boston and the Devils in the next eight days. Uh-oh. Somebody better start scoring. First move: Donald Brashear goes back in for Aaron Voros, who gets prucha’d. Why? Maybe there are 2.8 million reasons why. It makes less…

163 Hey, for the second game in a row, they scored

So if you’re looking for positives … the Rangers snapped that home-ice scoreless streak that spanned almost two full games. Some thoughts: 1) I agree with Lundqvist. If the Rangers played that exact same game and scored one or two more goals, we’d all be sitting here saying how well…
