134 The Korpedo returns and Dawes sits (Updated)

Tom Renney wouldn’t commit to it, but seeing how Nigel Dawes was still on the ice skating sprints while Lauri Korpikoski was already resting in the locker room, it’s safe to say The Korpedo will make his return tonight at Dawes’ expense. The other scratch will be Petr Prucha, who…

89 The return of The Korpedo

Fresh off his hat trick for the Wolf Pack, Lauri Korpikoski has been recalled by the Rangers, and will presumably be in the lineup tomorrow against Edmonton. Korpikoski had four goals and two assists in four games for Hartford. More on his return tomorrow…

120 Time for a different look?

The Rangers practiced today with the same lines, with the small exception Dan Fritsche subbing in for Petr Prucha alongside Nigel Dawes and Chris Drury (if you’re Prucha, it’s not exactly a good sign if you and Patrick Rissmiller are manning the point together). This rotation of Fritsche and Prucha…

238 Change is coming to Washington

Just don’t look  for it in the Rangers lineup, which is actually going to stay the same. A few notes hours before the Rangers face the Capitals: <li>Beware the (relatively) slow start for Alexander Ovechkin. The reigning Hart Trophy and Art Ross Trophy winner has just eight points this season,…

129 Back on terra firma

It seems slightly ridiculous now that we were all up in arms over the Rangers’ two-game losing streak. Heck, there was a time a few years ago when a two-game losing streak could have constituted a good week. But it only underscores the point that now even 16 games into…

56 So maybe it WAS the game plan

So remember all my grandstanding about how all NHL power plays are the same and that you can’t blame Perry Pearn for not making the necessary adjustments? What do you do when everyone wants to now give Pearn credit….for making the necessary adjusments? That was the case tonight, when both…

42 Rangers seeking compensation for Cherepanov

The Rangers have confirmed a report that they are seeking compensation for the loss of Alexei Cherepanov, the first round draft pick from 2007 who died last month in Russia. Citing what might be described as a loophole in the CBA, in which teams can be compensated for unsigned draft…

120 To boo or not to boo (Updated)

In tribute to our old friend Marek Malik, who will be returning to the Garden tonight, a familiar topic: If you felt the desire to boo Michal Rozsival after his role in the two Islanders shorthanded goals on Tuesday night, that’s certainly your right. The game was probably out of…

101 Let the handwringing begin (Updated)

People who come to this blog expecting to read about grand scale changes the morning after a big loss are often disappointed. Tom Renney isn’t one for grand scale changes, and when he is, the circumstances have to be a lot more dire than they are now. And so when…

130 A night of historic proportions

Who’d have ever thought we’d see the day…..that the Islanders would score two shorthanded goals in the third period? Apparently the election “was sort of a big deal, too”:http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/05/us/politics/05elect.html?_r=1&hp&oref=slogin. In fact, when Barack Obama promises that “change is coming,” is it possible he’s referring to the Rangers power play? Probably…

47 Hold that thought

A strange scene tonight, when Tom Renney had the door closed to the locker room for 10 minutes after the final buzzer. When the doors opened for the media, we cascaded through, only to have Markus Naslund ask if the team could still have a few minutes to itself. It…

34 I take it all back

Loyal readers of the blog may recall me bashing my friend Katie for leaving that Oct. 25 Pittsburgh game after the second period with the Rangers down 2-0. Well, here’s proof she stayed until the end. Props for the quality photo off her iPhone (presumably of Nigel Dawes) and the…

120 So let’s try this… (Updated)

There was no sense of panic from the Rangers after their blown two-goal lead in Toronto on Saturday night, and really if there was, you would have to wonder if they were cut out for this line of work. But what also doesn’t hurt is that many of the same…

49 Shanahan weighs interest from Blues

Does anything pertaining to Brendan Shanahan still count as news when the winger definitely isn’t coming back to the Rangers? I say yes, otherwise I wouldn’t have posted this. The 39-year-old free agent “apparently has some interest from John Davidson in St. Louis”:http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/sports/stories.nsf/sports/blues/story/1eaa935bf7806a5a862574f600227fc4?OpenDocument but is taking his time making a…

60 So this is why

If there’s a reason why teams don’t normally win at the clip the Rangers have been winning at, it’s because a) other teams start gearing up for you more than usual; or b) there is a chance that even subconsciously you start to get ahead of yourself. It’s hard to…
