70 Rangers promote Dubinsky, Liffiton

Hey everyone. Since our judicial process is currently holding Sam hostage from you, I will step in here quickly to tell you *the team has recalled Brandon Dubinsky and David Liffiton.* I don’t have much time, so here’s the release. *Note at the bottom that Hossa is due for an…

41 The cloud inside the silver lining

The line of the night belongs to one of my editors, Joe Erwin, who, in reference to Rick DiPietro’s 56-save effort, said, “After a performance like that, DiPietro should demand a contract extension.” It was impressive stuff, but equally impressive was how the Rangers still squeezed out the very type…

95 Looks good to me

Though Tom Renney still insists that Martin Straka will be a game-time decision, the coach helped the 34-year-old center test out his left shoulder by feathering some one-timers to Straka at mid-ice during the morning skate. Straka looked good to me, although I am not a doctor (nor do I…

28 Living in the moment

Flash back to two days ago, to the second intermission of Saturday’s matinee against the Blues: The Rangers were down 2-0, and their season was essentially over — not so much because they would be back six points or whatever in the playoff race, but because it was apparent they…

45 It’s not you, it’s me

Actually, it’s not technically me, either, but a faulty LoHud server that is preventing any of you from making comments. I’m told it’s not something that’s going to be resolved until tomorrow, so you’ll just have to press on without the poetic musings of “DumpJagrDope” for another day. If you…

37 The skeleton crew carries on

A few thoughts at the end of a long day: Tom Renney hardly sounded optimistic when talking about Martin Straka’s availability for Monday against the Islanders. I take “we’ll see” to mean “no way,” but maybe we’ll be surprised. In trying to capture everything that happened today, I failed to…

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…
