92 6-1 Rangers over Colorado

Ryan Callahan, Nikolai Zherdev, Petr Prucha, Scott Gomez, Chris Drury and Markus Naslund all scored tonight as the Rangers new aggresive style of play finally broke the dam. Between that and the five minutes of non-stop fighting, the fans at Madison Square Garden gave the team a standing ovation at…

310 Avalanche at Rangers

Tonight the Rangers host Colorado, and the team had a practice this morning in Greenburgh. John Tortorella worked with some new lines, although in typical Torts fashion he would not confirm that this is the lineup for tonight’s game. He reiterated that he liked Chris Drury and Brandon Dubinsky together,…

176 After further review … (AVERY UPDATE)

Hey, it’s Carp. Here is the explanation I got from NHL exec Mike Murphy regarding the review of the disallowed Brandon Dubinsky goal last night. Murphy said that the call was correct, but the process was not: “In regards to your questions relating to last nights Ranger – Panther game,…

140 Sprint, shoot, pushups

Practice was a little unusual today. The group was split roughly in half and the players with the most playing time in the John Tortorella era worked out off ice while the others had a brief and intense workout. There were pyramids and pushups, and shooting drill after shooting drill.…

208 Instant replay

Another game, another strong showing with a third-period lead — and another loss. The 2-1 loss to the Panthers tonight led to full-bodied chants of “Fire Sather!” Jane here. Tortorella said they immediately reviewed Brandon Dubinsky’s non-goal 17 seconds in, and Toronto had the final word so there was no…

557 Panthers game thread

When John Tortorella got to Madison Square Garden tonight, Chris Drury was already here. The center craned his neck last night on the bench to look at his new coach as if to say, “Put me out there.” “That’s Chris Drury,” Tortorella said. “That’s how much he cares.” Tortorella can…

297 0-0-1 (since the clean slate)

So do you think they’ll fire John Tortorella now, or wait until the end of the season? Obviously I’m kidding, and you could definitely see a difference in the game last night. But you could also see more of the same, and without looking very hard. Just the score tells…

799 Rangers ReTort

We’ll rename the blog for one night, since you guys are so excited. So here is some stuff from TSN on Tortorella’s debut tonight. And here is TSN’s report (on the right side of the page) in a preview of Tortorella’s first game, from today’s morning skate. They interview Kubina…

352 This is NOT a test (updated)

Well, it might be a pop quiz. But it sure isn’t a final exam. Rest assured, though, John Tortorella’s new system will be in full bloom tonight. Also rest assured that any line combos or personnel decisions the new sheriff employs tonight will not be final or conclusive. The first…

284 Iron John

One of our devoted readers pointed out last night that this is the first time since 1993, when Neil Smith hired Mike Keenan, that the Rangers actually got the best coach available. Sorry, there are too many comments in the last 48 hours for me to sift through and find…

224 New Rules

“Stay the f*** off the logo.” The Rangers team logo takes up most of the carpet in the middle of the locker room, and it’s forbidden territory again. That’s one of the changes John Tortorella made yesterday as he took over as the new head coach of the Rangers, the…

72 Quick post before Tort’s presser

Jane here with the details from today’s practice, which will be followed by an introduction to new Rangers coach John Tortorella. It was much more uptempo, shorter drills and sprints. We got a glimpse of Tortorella’s first lines: Dubinsky, Drury and Callahan; Gomez, Naslund and Zherdev; Dawes, Prucha and Korpikoski;…

More from Glen Sather’s conference call tonight (again, please excuse any typos and the bold font): “I have spoken to other people (about the coaching position) today, absolutely.” “No, the overtime loss (Sunday) wouldn’t have changed my mind. … I’ve had it in teh back of my mind for a…

53 Glen Sather … unplugged

Here are the first batch of quotes from the Glen Sather conference call tonight, regarding the Rangers coaching change (please excuse any typos): “I’ve been thinking about it probably the last couple of weeks. I could see the team starting to slide and, after the start that we had at…

187 This just in … (updated)

It’s official. John Tortorella is en route to NY to take over for practice tomorrow. Not available tonight for comment. Glen Sather said there is no compensation headed to Tampa Bay, and that Tortorella signed a multi-year contract. Assistant GM Jim Schoenfeld did not want the job. He and Pelino…

166 Tortorella sure isn’t Renney

Hey, it’s Carp. We’re still awaiting the conference call with Glen Sather, and presumably John Tortorella, which now looks like it will be in the early evening. Obviously there is some compensation issue, although it’s hard to imagine how Tampa Bay can be entitled to anything after firing the coach…

710 Updated: Renney fired

The Rangers have fired coach Tom Renney and assistant Perry Pearn. Heading to interview players now. More later. ——– It’s true. Renney is out, along with Pearn. Jane is at the rink. She and I will both have more shortly. UPDATE 12:34 Jane here again. The new coach will almost…

70 Too many men … or too few

I’m going to try to not be too negative here. Why? Just because I’m sick of being negative, and because I’m sure there are going to be plenty of chances to be negative the rest of this season. So the Rangers had too many men on the ice twice last…

525 A night to remember

Hi all, Sam Borden here. Sorry I’m not the Sam you guys (rightfully) loved for so long, but I just wanted to drop in with a few thoughts and a fresh thread for tonight’s goings-on. First, I put the subject of this post as “A Night to Remember”  because the…

262 Too bad there’s a game after the ceremony

The Rangers have a way of messing up these things (see: Adam Graves Night, followed by a loss to Atlanta). Too bad. Harry Howell and Andy Bathgate deserve for this to be a great night at the Garden. First of all, it’s well overdue, having their numbers go to the…
