582 Oilers at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 14. Oilers at Rangers. The Rangers come off a hideous loss in Toronto Saturday, a game in which they got swept up into playing the Leaves’ game of chances, executing terribly, playing poorly defensively. Just a lousy game that ended with a giveaway and a 4-on-1 game-winning goal…

162 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Reminder: Tonight’s Oilers-Rangers game at MSG is an unusual 6 p.m. start. Thoughts: 1) Toronto’s really not very good at all. Actually, it’s hard to believe that the way the Leaves play is the actually the way they strive to play. If you take care of your end, and don’t…

555 Rangers at Maple Leaves … It’s Go Time!

Game 13. Rangers at Maple Leaves. Ya boys look to avenge a loss to the Leaves in their home opener, a hideous affair, if you recall, which touched off an unsightly three-game losing streak. They are 5-1-2 in their last eight however. After tonight they return home for the…

Thoughts: 1) Win, lose or Bettman loser’s point, these games sure have been fun to watch, no? I mean, comebacks, close games, blown leads, more comebacks. Good…

509 Red Wings at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 12. Red Wings at Rangers. It’s still tough for me getting used to the idea that these are conference games now. The Rangers are 4-1-2 after their back-to-back home shootout losses (to Winnipeg and St. Louis). They have won only three of seven at home (3-2-2). Mats Zuccarello…

Click here for my story on last night’s Rangers-Blues game, from lohud.com. Click here to see lohud.com’s photo gallery of last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) I’m not going to get into whether the shootout is a stupid, stupid way to decide a hockey game — especially a really good hockey…

694 Blues at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 11. Blues at Black and Blues. As if the Rangers needed another injury … Mats Zuccarello, who was clipped twice in Saturday’s shootout loss to Winnipeg and was limping around the practice facility yesterday, is questionable for tonight’s game. He will be a game-time decision … if he…
