219 Ralph & Ed, or Flyers & Bruins?

I am so wrapped up in year-end and decade-end stories right now that I haven’t even considered what Mrs. Carp and I will do New Year’s Eve. But I have a dilemma New Year’s Day. The Winter Classic (are you allowed to say that without including the sponsor’s title, or…

168 Prospal has knee surgery

Sorry this is late, but I’m sure you’re aware we’ve had some tech problems today. I think the Rangers sabotaged us. I’m kidding. Here’s the official word from the Rangers on Prospal: VINNY PROSPAL UNDERGOES ARTHROSCOPIC KNEE SURGERY Procedure Performed This Morning at Phelps Memorial Hospital New York, December 28,…

78 Mighta beens

I was reading Larry Brooks’ piece on Sunday about the decade in hockey (which was excellent, by the way). For the second week in a row he mentioned that worst draft day ever, when the Islanders traded Roberto Luongo and Olli Jokenen to Florida for two stiffs, Mark Parrish and…

143 That’s what you get

I am not going to be too analytical today because, 1) it’s late in the day already; 2) I didn’t see the game live, only caught Rangers in 60 and the Marty Lovefest on the Hockey Night show; and 3) there’s not much that really needs to be analyzed. This…

403 Islanders at Rangers

So you want some basketball scores? I didn’t think so. Not much to report on your New York Rangers. Same lineup as the 4-1 win over Florida, although Andrew Gross wrote that Tortorella may break up Staal and Girardi, or at least he had them separated in the morning skate.…

126 Happy Boxing Day! … ?

There have been plenty of years when the Rangers played a Boxing Day game (boxing up holiday gifts is supposed to be a holiday) when we have noted the irony and the other meaning of the word boxing. In other words, that day’s game was loaded with fisticuffs. Throwing hands.…

59 Merry Christmas, Boneheads!

Good morning and Merry, Merry, Merry to everyone. Hope you all got what you wanted under your tree (sorry, Orr. I know you didn’t). More importantly, I hope you all are happy and in good health and able to spend today with family or friends. No hockey today as the…

145 A win into the break

So it’s four in a row now, but this last one was different. In each of the previous three — and in pretty much every win this season, since the middle of that seven-game winning streak in October — you and I have been able to say, “Yeah, but …”…

349 Panthers at Rangers

Not much news: Boyle is in for Christensen, who joins Voros on the prucha list. Lundqvist in goal again. I forgot to mention … Adam Rotter at the SNY Rangers blog kick-started my old memory the other day, but it didn’t stick to my burned-out cells and gray matter ……

60 More airing of Torts’ grievances

Apparently, as with us, John Tortorella wasn’t actually impressed with Wade Redden’s return from a two-game prucha-ing. Here’s Tortorella’s assessment of Redden’s first game back, borrowed from our friend Steve Zipay’s blog: “Reds, I thought he had some good shifts, I thought he had some crappy shifts, so it’s still,…

“Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reach for the last one they had – but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way! (The doll) was destroyed. But out of that, a new…

521 How quickly it turns

Happy Festivus Eve. It’s remarkable how, in the Leastern Conference, where all the bad teams are bunched up, a three-game winning streak can completely change a team’s fate and its fans’ desperation. So here are the Rangers, after feasting on three cupcakes (and let’s face it, they didn’t really feast…

222 Rangers at Hurricanes

OK. Better late than never. Here’s your game thread. What you need to know: Redden is de-prucha’d and Gilroy is in the lineup. Up front, Boyle has the dreaded undisclosed injury — and we all know how painful that can be, depending on what undisclosed part of the body is…

166 About Wade

That’s what tonight’s game is. About Wade. It’s all about Wade Redden, because this is the first game of the rest of his Rangers career. And that career could be a long time. The question is, does the Rangers front office and coaching staff have the onions to actually banish…
