68 “Gotta support the team” (Malik update below)

A colleague of mine recently rolled her eyes at the thought of another Rangers-Devils game, if only because the Devils still conjure memories of mind-numbing, defensive-oriented, wake-me-up-when-someone-even-gets-a-shot-off hockey. The reality is the games between these two teams this year have been some of the best of the year — in…

28 Another YouTube gem

There’s been a lot of talk about the Rangers toughness, or lack thereof, in the wake of their demoralizing loss to the Flyers on Saturday. I think I have a solution, and the good news is I’m pretty sure the team can fit all three Hanson brothers under the cap.…

41 Shanny shows up at the rink

He won’t play for at least a week, and maybe longer, but that didn’t stop Brendan Shanahan from showing up at the Garden directly from St. Vincent’s Hospital in order to address his teammates. “Honestly it was pretty inspirational seeing him coming in here and it shows how much he…

65 The benefit of hindsight

That headline applies to Tom Renney, which I’ll touch upon in a second. It certainly does NOT apply to Brendan Shanahan, who for all the obvious pains endured yesterday, at least doesn’t remember the collision that knocked him unconscious and now, out of the lineup. The rest of us, meanwhile,…

24 Shanahan placed on IR

Much more in a little bit, but here’s the basics: Brendan Shanahan was discharged from the hospital this morning and by all accounts he’s in better shape than anticipated. But the right wing will still be placed on injured reserve because of the concussion sustained yesterday, meaning he’ll miss at…

A game that at one point was just comically bad for the Rangers quickly turned scary when Brendan Shanahan’s head hit the Garden ice this afternoon. I say scary not only because Shanahan has 28 goals and the Rangers are scrambling for a playoff spot; and not only because Shanahan…

129 How about we play at your place?

If there’s anything scarier than a game you’re supposed to win, it’s two of them back-to-back. But that is what the Rangers face on this President’s Day weekend, with today against the league-worst Flyers and then tomorrow against the lowly Blackhawks. Combine the recent roll this team is on with…

89 Those were the days

On whole, the Rangers are a more interesting team now that they’ve thrown themselves back into the playoff picture with 25 games remaining. Put it another way: I’d rather be writing about a team playing relevant games as opposed to one sputtering to the end with one eye on the…

68 So long, Peter?

Let’s all take a moment to pass along our sympathies to reader John M., who has singlehandedly been mounting a campaign for the Rangers to take on Peter Forsberg. It now looks like that’s not going to happen, with “TSN reporting”:http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/ that Forsberg is instead headed to Nashville in exchange…

90 And now back to hockey

Based on the last few posts, you would think that the Rangers are either A) comfortably in control of a playoff spot, or B) well out of reach of a playoff spot, with nothing left relevant to discuss. The reality, we all know is different, and tonight against the Hurricanes…

…courtesy of Mitch Beck, and then we’ll get back to the business of real hockey news. Actor Tim Curry and third line center Matt Cullen. This only shows that if the Rangers don’t make the playoffs, there may be stand-in work available in Hollywood….

65 Separated at birth?

I can’t remember if I made this point back in training camp or not, but is it me, or is Stephen Valiquette a dead ringer for actor Peter Krause of “Six Feet Under” fame? I feel if I don’t bring this stuff up, no one will.

16 All in the name of journalism

Yes, it was a slippery front end of my trip to the practice today, and this is to say nothing of what still awaits. It doesn’t help that the wife has the better snow car today, but that’s just what you do on Valentine’s Day. And they say chivalry is…

15 Weekes on IR; Valiquette up

Not sure this means too much given that Henrik Lundqvist is likely to shoulder the entire load anyway. But at least you’ll see a new face at the end of the bench. More later from practice, where I nearly drove off the road just to get here…

24 A trip behind the scenes at the MSG Training Center

Hey folks. It’s been a while since you heard from me. When not making my superhero turn to swoop in and save Sam from the evil wretches of the golfing universe, “I’m probably doing this.”:http://sixthman.lohudblogs.com The reason I’m checking in this afternoon is because I wrote a story for today’s…

Thanks to the estimable Peter Abraham, author of a “highly entertaining and ridiculously popular Yankees blog”:http://yankees.lohudblogs.com/ for teaching me how to post a Youtube video directly on to the blog. Since I mentioned our friend Inferno’s highlight video earlier, I figured that will be our inaugural venture, although I should…

44 Off day odds-and-ends

Cleaning out the notebook as the Rangers wish they could just keep playing…. Who is the player wearing No. 81 and what did he do with Marcel Hossa? I’ll take this opportunity now to say I always thought Marian’s younger brother had more upside than he was given credit for…
