199 Rangers-‘Yotes in review

Actually, not a lot to analyze here. 1) The Rangers, overall, were better as a group on the defensive side of the puck. That was especially so for Staal and Girardi, I thought. 2) Who is that guy in the Redden jersey and what did they do with Wade? 3)…

385 ‘Yotes-Rangers

My friend Zip (who is still free, as in no charge, until Wednesday) is reporting that Brashear is back in, which means Voros gets prucha’d. Also, that Anisimov centers the fourth line between Brashear and Boyle; Callahan is joined by the doghouse boys, Dubinsky and Higgins, Lisin (the former ‘Yote)…

166 Desert Dogs up next

Three straight losses has the Rangers reeling. It’s early, and way too early to panic. But it obviously is weighing on the Rangers, who had won seven in a row — the last three of those just sloppy enough to morph into this downslide. And now John Tortorella is delivering…

This is an edited version of a story written by John Halligan, the author and long-time Rangers executive, who passed it along to us: Bill (The Big Whistle) Chadwick, a native New Yorker and the first United States-born official in the National Hockey League and later a popular broadcaster for…

From the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS POST-GAME NOTES October 24, 2009 – New York Rangers 4, Montreal Canadiens 5 OT (Game #11, Road #5) * The Blueshirts were defeated by the Montreal Canadiens, 5-4, in overtime tonight at Bell Centre to fall to 7-3-1 overall, including a 3-1-1 mark on…

627 Rangers-Canadiens

The Rangers will go with the same lineup tonight, which means Brashear is scratched due to soreness, not Prucha’d (healthy scratch). Expect mucho line-juggling after the two straight losses, and the struggles of the second-liners, Drury, Callahan and Higgins (although the captain somehow escapes being singled out by the coach).…

123 Gotta Hab it

The Rangers go to Montreal for a game they absolutely need to have. Well, maybe not. But they sure could use it after two straight home losses. I remember in the pre-Messier days, which also happened to be the Montreal Forum days, when this was as automatic a loss as…

259 Devils-Rangers in review

I thought the game against the Devils was much, much better than the one against the Sharks, and if you really look with an unbiased eye (I know that’s probably not happening here) it might have been, as an overall effort, better than some of the sloppy wins. Here’s my…

363 Almost gametime (updated)(again)

Ah, a headline that will be outdated in an hour and a half. Got nothing. Well, except this: Callahan and Gaborik are playing tonight. Probably the same lineup as Monday, with Lundqvist in goal instead of Valiquette. Which means Voros gets Prucha’d (I love that verb). Martin Brodeur (you guys…

261 Game day

Good late morning. I’m trying to wrap up a few things so I can head to MSG for tonight’s game, which should be interesting given all the history, and given what the Rangers did (or didn’t do) Monday, and given the usual Avery-Brodeur and other assorted rivalry stuff that accompanies…

249 An eye on Avery

I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s game for two reasons. One, I’m going! Two, it will be interesting to see what this game does to or for the Rangers, after their awful loss Monday to the Sharks. Mostly I will be interested to see how Sean Avery plays against his old…

238 Ugly’s not a strong enough word

If you’ve watched hockey seasons at all … in other words, if this isn’t your first season as a fan … then you should know this. Losing streaks sometimes start with poorly-played victories. The Rangers had won seven in a row, but the last three were nowhere near complete-game wins,…

533 Getting ahead of ourselves …

The last time the Rangers won eight in a row was 1974-75 … I think that was the team that lost to the Islanders on the J.P. Parise goal in overtime … and 1973-74. The team record is 10 in a row 1972-73 and in 1939-40. Here’s your blank canvas…

172 Shark bites

Whenever I think of San Jose, one thing in particular comes to mind: That trip where the Rangers, having a pretty good season as I recall, collapsed. Eric Lindros suffered a concussion (surprise) on a minor collision at center ice, near the boards; and Theo Fleury punched the Sharks’ mascot…

125 Rangers-Leaves in review

Sorry for the late post. Got home from Yankee Stadium well after 3 a.m. I felt like CCCP this morning, only without, you know, the vodka and the fun. 1) The defense corps, overall, seems to have adapted well to the Rangers’ new system, you’d have to say. It doesn’t…

Closing in on gametime. Hope my radio is working in the pressbox at Yankee Stadium. Wish I was home on the couch with the laptop and a sandwich. Or in T.O. I know some of you think Josh doesn’t exist, but he does, and he’s here at the Stadium, right…
