151 Lundqvist out, Valiquette in

Yikes… No, Henrik Lundqvist isn’t hurt, or even sick. But he has started 19 straight games, and Tom Renney figured better to rest his starter now than in two games against the Islanders next week. Personally, I think the team should have called up Al Montoya, who is playing in…

13 JD is back…at least for an afternoon

Along with the usual team updates — Tyutin’s knee, Shanny’s head, Straka’s shoulder — I spent most of yesterday working on a story about “John Davidson’s return to the Garden”:http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070303/SPORTS01/703030388/1034/SPORTS today. One of the personal disappointments heading into this season was knowing JD wasn’t going to be around seeing how…

122 From bad to worse

The Rangers confirmed that Darius Kasparaitis was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons after experiencing shortness of breath, and has already been released. If that’s the good news, you’re not going to like the bad. The team also said Fedor Tyutin had an MRI done on his left MCL…

53 Kasparaitis hospitalized

Steve Zipay has details of “Darius Kasparaitis being taken to the hospital for shortness of breath”:http://weblogs.newsday.com/sports/hockey/rangers/blog/ during a practice in Hartford. Kasparaitis was apparently sobbing uncontrollably when he left the ice. I’m trying to track down information on my own. I’ll post it when I have it.

43 OK, here goes…

Assuming I have not screwed this up entirely, you should be able to access some audio from today with Tom Renney below. [audio:http://lohud.com/audio/rangers/tomrenney0302.mp3] Unfortunately I still haven’t figured out how to edit this stuff properly, so you have to endure some dead air along with some annoying questions from a…

24 Practice delayed

Adding to the misadventures of this season, many players had trouble getting to the rink today because of the weather, and are only trickling on the ice now. Interestingly, for a while, Kevin Weekes was the only player on the ice, and was getting in some angle work with goaltending…

119 Nothing left to say

Fedor Tyutin’s condition is being described as a sprain to his left MCL. Still no word on how long he’ll be out. It’s good to be the Penguins: On one end of the hallway tonight, Evgeni Malkin was chatting up two blonde models, with a tanned Mario Lemieux standing nearby.…

134 Not only am I here….

….but I even scarfed down two full plates of some sort of Chinese-influenced chicken, rice, and egg roll concoction here in the Garden press room. So if you see me doubled-over in the press box later, you’ll know why…. Anyway, nothing major to report: Straka is still out, Roberts and…

19 Sidetracked

I was hauled into The Journal News offices this afternoon for non-hockey related work, but fear not, dear readers: the plan is for to me still be at the Garden by the opening face-off. In the meantime, plenty of exciting activity on the blog front, with the long-awaited audio clips…

85 Malik doesn’t get the boos, and neither do I

Perhaps because I’ve already irritated Rangers fans once this week by calling them delusional, I “sought out Marek Malik yesterday”:http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070301/SPORTS01/703010420/1046/SPORTS to ask him about 1) the “A” Tom Renney awarded him with on Tuesday night; 2) his team-best plus-23 rating; and 3) the boos he’s been hearing on a nightly…

32 Straka still questionable

Marty Straka didn’t skate at practice today, and tomorrow against the Penguins seems unlikely. Both Tom Renney and Straka also acknowledged that the shoulder injury is something that the forward is going to need to address during the off-season. That said, Straka reported improvement from yesterday, so there remains the…

70 The comeback starts now

What, you’re not believers? OK, so let’s hold off on the “There’s no stopping this Rangers juggernaut” stories for at least a little while. Still, here’s the remarkable part: considering how dreadful this team has been at points this year, they’re still only six points out of a playoff spot.…

129 My fingers are demanding a trade

OK, lots of ground to cover and not a lot of time to cover it: First, the most pressing: as of this writing, Paul Mara has not arrived at the Garden because of airline problems in Boston, but the Rangers are still hoping to get him in the lineup tonight.…

50 Immonen back up

Jarkko Immonen has been called up along with Brad Isbister from Hartford. Still no word on whether Paul Mara will make it here in time for the game, although Tom Renney said Mara would play if he does.

129 Ward to Boston for Paul Mara

OK, here’s what we know: *UPDATE, 2:59 p.m.: The Rangers confirmed the prospect in the Dupuis deal is Alex Bourret.* *UPDATE, 2:43 p.m.: The Rangers have confirmed trading Pascal Dupuis to Atlanta in exchange for a prospect. Good as Dupuis had been with Jed Ortmeyer and Matt Cullen, the team…
