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…

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…
