82 Not a good night for your Rangers

Montreal is up big against Toronto. Carolina beat Pittsburgh in OT, so points all around. The best news: Florida didn’t play, and has to play the Penguins tomorrow. The standings will look like this: 5. Carolina 95 points, three games left. 6. Pitt 93 points, four left. 7. Montreal 92…

576 Numbers don’t lie … we think

With Florida’s loss to Atlanta and Buffalo’s win last night, here’s the deal (and please correct me if I’m wrong, because it seems I usually foul up something when I play with numbers … I’m like a six-year-old playing with matches): If the Rangers go 3-1 for 95 points, they’re…

352 Then there were four (updated)

I don’t have to spell out the remaining schedule, or the standings, or what Montreal and Florida have left (although they both have games in hand). It’s grim now. But, as Nasty pointed out in the previous post, if the Rangers win their two home games, that should be enough.…

506 Gamer: NYR-Carolina

I forgot to mention earlier that the Hurricanes have also won nine in a row at home, which ties the franchise record set in their Stanley Cup year — I still can’t believe I lived to write, one day, that the Carolina Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup. The Canes have…

90 Bettman on the drive

I’m bringing you part of the transcript of an interview Rangers season tickets holder Boomer Esiason and his partner Craig Carton did with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman this morning on WFAN: “He is a marked man, Avery,” Carton said. “Other teams are marking him,” Boomer said. “I don’t think he’s…

79 Hurricane Cam. Gulp.

Another litmus test. Carolina is 10-1-2 in its last 13, all with red-hot Cam Ward in goal. We know the Rangers soundly beat the Devils with perhaps their best performance of the year, yet we also know how mightily the Devils are struggling (will Lou Lamoriello lop another coach just…

168 Rangers practice, no foolin’

Sidd Finch and Bernhard Holden have been put back in the trunk until the next April Fools. (Gotta love Carp!) But for real, Michal Rozsival was on the ice today, paired with odd-man-out Aaron Voros on the line drills. When he got back to the locker room, Rozsival said his…

139 Scoring help is on the way!

It pays to go to the rink early. When I got here I ran into a scout I know, who told me there’s this 20-year-old kid in Germany who somehow snuck under the radar and went undrafted and thus is a complete free agent. His name is Bernhard Holden. Anyway,…

208 Near perfecto (updated)

That is easily the best game the Rangers have played since I’ve been on this blog, which goes back to Jan. 29, and some of you have said that it may have been their best game all year. Since I’ve been around, whatever game is second best isn’t even close.…

86 Rangers blank Devils 3-0

Rangers get a big win tonight and put three points between their seventh-place spot and Montreal in eighth. Hard not to talk about the playoffs this time of year. “We don’t have a playoff spot,” John Tortorella said. “We are in the playoffs but we are still fighting for our…

530 Devils at Rangers game thread

Starting at 7 on Versus, the Devils (47-24-4) take on Sean Avery and the Rangers (39-28-9)! (Actually, borrowing from NBC’s hockey coverage in that lead-in.) Before tonight’s game Rangers coach John Tortorella was asked if this is a must-win game for his team, and he said he just couldn’t put…

206 Updated: Let’s see what you got

I just got back from a pleasure trip. Took my mother-in-law to the airport. Ba-dum-bum. No kidding. I just took my mother-in-law to the airport. I don’t normally venture out into morning rush hour traffic, but I had no choice, and I want to tell you, it’s frightening out there…

127 Playoffs, Devils and emotion

The Rangers practiced today on their home ice after losing a tough one in Pittsburgh. The two-game road trip yielded just one point, but captain Chris Drury said he thinks the Rangers can still make the playoffs despite the two losses and tough schedule. 0329drury In the audio clip below,…

52 Potter up, Sauer down

After a poor performance yesterday in a 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh (-2 in 1:59), Michael Sauer was sent back to Hartford and Corey Potter has been brought up to replace defenseman Michal Rozival, out for another week or so with a “lower body” injury. Practice was pushed back to 11:45…

601 Into the Igloo

I was actually thinking abut this during the third period Thursday night, and now even more so as the Rangers prep to face Evgeni Malkin (notice I list him first) and Sid the Kid (a.k.a. Cindy, in the Festivus blog). Where does Kovalchuk place among the best offensive players in…

236 Rage, rage against the dying of the light

If you wanted an idea of how rotten last night’s 5-4 shootout loss to the Thrashers was, all you need to know is that Rangers coach John Tortorella couldn’t keep it together for more than 30 seconds before storming out of the postgame. “I thought we sucked right on through…

713 They go south, I go north

Don’t forget to write those Thank You letters to the Florida Panthers, who are making it awfully simple for the Rangers (and Montreal Canadiens, and others) to make the playoffs. The Cats’ collapse last night leaves your NYR in a good spot, up five with eight to play, no games…

98 Sauer debut, plus Thrashers

When the Rangers lost to the Thrashers on Feb. 3, it was one of the lowest points of the current season. It was Adam Graves night, and a host of Ranger legends had taken the ice at the start of the evening to bring back the memory of that 1994…

46 Yes, that’s a good win

The previous post suggested the Wild game was dull or boring, and even the coach of the NYR said it was hard to watch. And it was. That doesn’t make it anything but a good victory for your Blueshirts. Maybe a great victory. Maybe the one that proves their mettle,…

64 After the 2-1 snoozer of a victory …

Somebody wanted me to show some, uh, guts and ask John Tortorella about the power play. Well, I was about to do that, but I was beaten to the question. “It wasn’t good,” the coach said. “But I’m not going to run it down with you. We’ve got to work…
