137 Brashear questionable

But you already knew that. Hey, there has to be a headline up there, so unless anybody’s got a better idea, I’m sticking with the old news. For those just joining us, though, Donald Brashear is reportedly sore and may be given the night off — especially since the Rangers…

153 Walk with Kings

Rangers vs. Los Angeles Kings tonight? I thought L.A. folded when Gretzky left. Actually, apparently the Kings are pretty good this season, or at least pretty good so far. We’ll see. We know the Rangers have been better than pretty good so far, and it certainly hasn’t hurt that ex-King…

158 Rangers-Leaves in review

Some day-after thoughts: 1) In an Olympic year there will be lots of back-to-backs and three-in-four nights. So far the Rangers have won the second game of both of their back-to-backs, and tomorrow they play their second third-in-four; they won the previous third-in-four. Conditioning? 2) It was inevitable that Colton…

456 Tortorella pregame

Getting set for the Leaves vs. the Rangers (gramatically correct “Leaves”). Same lineup as last night except Lundqvist. Had a chance to ask Tortorella what has surprised him so far this season. “I wouldn’t say surprised,” he said. “You have to be happy with how the kids are playing. We…

180 Thinking aloud

Some (late) morning-after thoughts: 1) You already started the discussion this morning: What do you root for if Orr and Brashear have a tangle tonight? I’m sure Orr will be cheered when he hits the ice. You can’t possibly have a problem with that, right? 2) How about Avery. He…

219 Avery in, Voros out

So Avery will probably play fourth line, which is a good idea to ease him back in with an MCL sprain. Plus he can muck it up with Brashear there for reinforcements and really be extra annoying. And Tortorella needs some abrasiveness late in the game, he can move Avery…

60 Duck hunting (updated)

The Rangers have played four games, and won three in a row, with the same 19 players. But today they expect two lineup changes. Sean Avery goes in and somebody — Aaron Voros or Enver Lisin, we suspect — comes out. And Steve Valiquette plays goal to give Henrik Lundqvist…

183 Heatley’s hat

You’ve probably seen by now that Dany Heatley scored on a penalty shot to complete a hat trick last night. Just to remind us, whether you like him or not, whether you think he’s good or a team or not, that he’s a pretty special talent. But I can’t help…

43 Theo’s sad tale

I know a lot of people in and around hockey speculated and suspected this, but now it’s out, this sad story about Theo Fleury, who will spill all the beans in his new book. —————— Also, Evgeny Grachev was reassigned to Hartford today. Me, I’m going to dry off.

178 Review of Rangers-Caps

Heave ho, three in a row. Lots going on with this team so early. 1) If John Tortorella really was Mike Keenan-esque, he’d be in Glen Sather’s office today telling him to get rid of Rozsival or I’ll just bury him. I don’t think Torterella is that way, though. Rozsival…

516 Grachev recalled from Hartford

This just in from the Rangers. I guess Callahan is questionable, or out, with an injury tonight. New York, October 8, 2009 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that forward Evgeny Grachev has been recalled from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey…

174 So, who comes out?

The Rangers go to D.C. tomorrow to face a team that ought to test their aggressiveness and the inconsistencies they’ve shown defensively in the first three games. I saw some of the Capitals’ game against the Flyers last night, and man, both teams looked pretty darn good. Anyway, the Rangers…

103 The youth giveth and taketh

I think it’s really fascinating, and will continue to be, the way John Tortorella teaches, coddles, lives with and dies with the rookies this season, especially the D-men. Artem Anisimov is in a different situation. The expectations won’t be the same as those on Matt Gilroy and Michael Del Zotto,…
