68 Back to back

Little time for whining about last night, not with the defending champs awaiting in a home-and-home. But … 1) You want positives. OK, the young guys are getting great experience. Del Zotto is even getting more physical every game. Sanguinetti didn’t look out of place. One of the goals was…

226 Gamer, Rangers-Lightning

Never liked those singular names. Ought to be Lightnings. Or Lightning Bolts. Or Lightning Strikes. Or just Bolts. Or whatever. Anyway, here was my checklist for today: Get up, blog, go to office, drive to Syracuse, survive that (despite rain and sleet and some snow), check into hotel before 7:30,…

85 Game day, at Tampa

The Rangers had their Thanksgiving dinner in Tampa. Tonight some of them go for a little revenge for desert. I’m not sure there’s really any motivation for coaches and players returning to play their old teams. But in this case, John Tortorella was fired by the Lightning after winning a…

124 Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s been a tough year on a lot of people, but still most of us should count our blessings. I know I’m thankful for something completely out of the blue. My friend Sam Weinman left for greener pastures in January, and I “temporarily” took over this blog. It was a…

OK, so here’s the news, for those who get their boxers in a bunch when I do anything that isn’t news: Capt. Drury is in the lineup tonight. Kotalik, who got banged up Monday, is out. Lundqvist is in goal. Here are tonight’s pregame notes. Not enough? Tough. Go read…

73 Sunrise follies

Does anybody else think about the “Leetch-wing lock” employed once upon a time by coach Muckler, when the Rangers play in Sunrise? I do. That is always my first thought when the Rangers play there (I have different memories of when the Panthers played at Miami Arena, in one of…

148 Rangers-BJs in review

You all know not to get too excited over those seven straight goals, right? You know that in the course of an 82-game season every team will have a couple of games like that, even your Rangers, right? You understand that the BJs goalies stunk, that everything went in. That…

484 Columbus Day

Or night. Here’s your game thread. ————————————- Though we are sometimes critical (sometimes?) of the on-ice work the Rangers do, we are never disappointed with what they do off the ice. Here’s another example of the organization’s good-heartedness. There was just a feature on it during the pregame show on…

166 Game day

So the Blue Jackets come to town, in what should be one of the softer games in this stretch of five in eight nights, six in 10. Should be. But Columbus is 6-1-3 in its last 10, which looks good on paper. The one loss was 9-1 to Detroit. Five…

Hi everybody. Sleep well? I did. Just got up, after getting home from Kingston at 2 a.m. and being all coffee-d up on the ride home. I know none of you ever go to bed after midnight, so you don’t know what I’m talking about. So I saw some of…

I always remember Esa Tikkanen calling them “the Punters” with that Tikkanese accent of his. Just wanted to give you this blank slate. I’m at the second of three football games and not freezing (yet). Not bad out. Keep me posted with some score updates later, OK? Here are the…

116 Time for some games, and some change

This might be a good time for the Rangers to, you know, get their stuff together. Yeah, they’re a little bit banged up, and yeah, they’ve had some decent performances lately, mixed in with some average to below-average to awful ones. But they sure shouldn’t be tired, and with all…

116 Can’t wait for next week
