118 The 2013-14 Rangers … Hey, you never know

My column from The Journal News and lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Ten years ago, the Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup. Since then, a bunch of guys from that team have come through the Rangers — current ex-Bolts Brad Richards and Martin St. Louis, and others such as Vinny…

594 Game 3: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) First of all, a little tempest was set off in Pittsburgh by a couple of shots Marc Staal took on Sidney Crosby (click here to see them), both of which should have probably been penalties, but as you know, our fine NHL referees are more than likely to…

247 Rangers are good; just not good enough to beat these birds

Here’s my column from The Journal News and lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Same state, different birds. The Pittsburgh Penguins are not, by any stretch of anybody’s imagination, the Philadelphia Flyers. The Rangers are going to be involved in a test far above and beyond what they’ve endured the last two…

554 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) That’s a good win for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is that Philly and Columbus won and that collar would be getting a little tight if the Rangers lost. Also given the poor start against yet another — God, how many are there? –…

651 It’s Go Time! … Penguins at Rangers

Game 35. Penguins at Rangers. Ya boys come in on a one-game winning streak, albeit a win in one of those gimmicky things they sometimes hold after the hockey portion of the evening is over. They are 1-3-1 on the nine-game homestand so far. Dylan McIlrath comes out of…

255 Rangers-Panthers in review

The Rangers held serve. That’s all they did and that’s all they needed to do. They controlled their own destiny going into the night – a night in which all the teams they needed to lose, naturally, won – and with their 6-1 win over the awful Panthers, they still…

How does an Englishman end up a Ranger fan? By UKRanger It all started around Christmas 1983 for me (around the time of the Maloneys, Greschner, Larouche, and Sandstrom and a first-round exit to the Flyers) not as a Ranger fan, but that was when my interest in American sports…

44 Guest blogger: Steve from NY

Being a Ranger fan is what I live for during the NHL season. I watch every game, studying systems and commenting from the couch. As most Ranger fans, I feel a part of this team. I get upset when they lose, joyful when they win and grow my own beard…

My Greatest Goalie Coach By Patrick Hoffman I didn’t learn how to stop a breakaway as a goaltender from the usual suspects. Was it from a goalie coach? No. Was it from summer hockey camps? Nope. Did my dad give me advice on the position? No way. I learned how to…

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…

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…
