238 On the road again (updated)

I really wrestled with how I wanted to analyze yesterday’s game. You know why. It was a good win over a good opponent (although Boston has been struggling) in which the Rangers scored four goals, which used to be a week’s worth. But, you know …  If John Tortorella thought the…

122 Rangers 4-3 over Boston

Welcome to New York Sean, Nik and Derek. Each of them had a hand in that impressive 4-3 win over the top team in the NHL, the Boston Bruins. But no one was getting cocky about the win. That doesn’t fall into the “right kind of arrogance” attitude being cultivated…

279 Must See TV

There were plenty of chants for Sean Avery last Thursday at Nassau Coliseum, but none of them were very friendly. Now he’s returning to Madison Square Garden, where he says he feels at home. We’ll hear if the Rangers fans show him they feel the same way. Since the game…

44 Brunch on ice

Couple of reasons why the Bruins game matters. The Rangers have won their last two against teams that weren’t really good barometers. After such a long drought, being able to actually score again was a good sign, but the Bruins represent the kind of challenge John Tortorella said he welcomes.…

134 Rozsival’s done that

Torn labrum in the hip? Michal Rozsival is one player who can relate to Alex Rodriguez and the decision he faces on whether to have surgery for the injury. The Rangers defenseman played with the issue last season and had surgery in the offseason. “I’m not really into baseball,” Rozsival…

159 Rangers 4, Bridgeport 2

I don’t want to totally discredit last night’s victory, but this was a pretty bad Islanders team that was so decimated it needed four minor-leaguers who just showed up a couple of hours before game time. Yes, at this point a win is a win is a win. It is.…

85 Two in a row…

I know you all are perfectly capable of picking out the pertinent stats from tonight’s 4-2 win over the Islanders on the Island, but I just can’t help myself. The Rangers had the main offensive players scoring again — Nikolai Zherdev, Markus Naslund, Scott Gomez and Chris Drury. Two goals…

326 Tonight at Isles

You can expect to see the three new Rangers — Nik Antropov, Sean Avery and Derek Morris — on the ice tonight when the Rangers play the Isles. I thought it was a little odd that coach John Tortorella wasn’t out there for the optional practice today, since he’ll be…

175 Torts Reform

You have to love John Tortorella’s honesty. “The regular season stinks,” Tortorella said. “It gets boring and this is the time of year where now the lights at the end of the tunnel, the playoffs are right there and we got less than a quarter. This is the fun time…

200 So what happened?

Here’s what I think about the Rangers’ trade deadline day: In simple terms, they got better for this year, didn’t give up much of the future, and as long as they don’t re-sign either Nik Antropov or Derek Morris, they will have a little more salary cap space this summer…

381 Sather Live! (updated)

These are some quick quotes from a brief conference call with Glen Sather. It just ended. Not a lot more than this: “Antropov is a big winger or center-iceman and he’ll help us in the goal scoring department. “Morris gives is a bit more bite on the back end. He…

126 Avery skates

Sean Avery already owes Henrik Lundqvist dinner. At the end of practice, the two had a shootout (that’s it in the pic) with a meal as the wager. The newly re-Rangered Avery needed to make just two goals to win it, but he only got one. “It’s fun to see…

Just wanted to let you know that Jane is going over to practice today and she will come back with a report on Sean Avery’s return and first practice. Then throughout the day, as we come across info, or as trades happen we will have updates here. Redden for Bouwmeester…

671 Drury and Dubinsky on Avery (updated)

(AFTERNOON UPDATE: Just want to point out that at practice today, pretty much every Rangers scout and player personnel person was present and accounted for. So, organizationally at least, the Rangers are braced to make moves as they come available. I still think they’re pretty hamstrung, and that nobody is…

28 Voros, Reitz on waivers

Here’s TSN’s story on the number of players placed on waivers today, a day before the trade deadline. Aaron Voros and Eric Reitz are among them. There are some notable others on the list, too, including Miro Satan and Gary Roberts. Teams are trying to clear cap space for tomorrow’s…

39 Tortorella on Avery, and the deadline

Seventeen other NHL teams wanted no part of Sean Avery. Yet the Rangers couldn’t get him fast enough. So here we go with Avery II. Rangers coach John Tortorella, who as a TSN analyst said earlier this season that Avery was a selfish player and embarrassment to the league, sure…
