52 Rangers-Kings in review

We’re underway. Ya boys got a point on the road, blew a lead, caused way-too-early panic, took too many penalties. In other words, situation normal. Quick turnaround with a 1 p.m. road game today vs. the future Stanley Cup runnerup Mighty Ducks in Stockholm. Thoughts: 1) Time of possession in…

247 My Saturday with Captain Clutch

So this is what I did yesterday. Spent a day at the ballpark and witnessed another remarkable moment, or series of moments, another whole boatload of memories. When I tally up my career, yesterday is going to be one of the top five or six or, certainly, 10 days I’ve…

475 Capitals 2, Rangers 1 (OT): Game 1 in review

Wow. Pretty good Game 1. I’m sure you weren’t thrilled with the outcome, and sure you weren’t thrilled with the play that decided it. Thoughts: 1) I thought Marc Staal and Dan Girardi had some strong game, with loads of minutes, taking and doling out lots of punishment. Alex Ovechkin…

295 Bad day, bad night for the Rangers

This really isn’t going to be easy in any way, is it? Not for the Canadiens. Not for the Baby Buffaloes. Not for the Hurricanes. And certainly not for the Rangers. These teams all seem to win every time they have to win. As you know, Montreal defeated Chicago in…

127 Canes at Rangers tonight

Had a really busy day yesterday, saw some of my faves: Mark Messier, Adam Graves, Mike Keenan, at the rink. Had a nice sit-down with Tortorella for a story I’m writing for Sunday. Today I’m headed to MSG for the game tonight, as the Rangers hit the mid-season mark. Will…

39 Rangers in the Christmas spirit

This is one area where you can never say a bad word about the New York Rangers: They do good deeds and they have produced some of the great deed-doers. So today is the mother of all their good-will events, Adam Graves and his annual Toys for Tots drive. If…

88 Thrashers-Rangers in review

Some thoughts: 1) I saw Artem Anisimov after the game. He was standing, talking to one of the Thrashees, no boot, no crutches, no cane. I didn’t see if he was limping, but I imagine he was. He didn’t sound terribly worried. That doesn’t mean that it’s good or bad…

Good mornin’ Boneheads. It’s a game day. I’ll be heading into Manhattan later on, and hope to have a lineup in a little bit. I want to thank our buddy, tr-808, for sending along this pic in regard to yesterday’s No. 11. Adam Graves wore it for one game, but…

212 Questions about the Rangers

Some thoughts as we stand in the middle of the preseason: 1) Are you a little concerned about the number of goals allowed in the first three games? I know, it hasn’t been the whole team, and maybe they haven’t worked on system enough, and certainly you don’t put a…
