371 Rangers’ free agency scoreboard

While we wait on a major move, which will happen, though obviously there’s no rush, here’s the scorecard so far (hope I’m not missing anybody): Lost: Brandon Prust. Ruslan Fedotenko. John Mitchell. Jeff Woywitka. John Scott. Chad Johnson. Jonathan Audy-Marchessault. Added: Arron Asham. Micheal Haley. Taylor Pyatt. Kyle Jean. Retained:…

141 Rangers-Senators Game 7 in review

So we go from one nation’s capital to the other. (See previous post for the whole Conference Semifinals schedule — and p.s. to NBC, it’s not the Stanley Cup semifinals, OK?). Thoughts: 1) That was one great Game 7. Seriously, I thought ya boys played a great game, as I…

Happy Easter. In case you fell asleep, Vancouver won the Presidents’ Trophy by beating Edmonton. Big whoop. These are the first-round matchups, with the schedules to be announced today at 1 p.m. Since it’s a holiday, I doubt I’ll be interested at that hour, so youse will have to rely…

92 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) Things got awfully simple thanks to Philly yesterday. Would have been more simple, obviously, if the Rangers had been able to finish things off. So they go to the final three games — at Philly tomorrow, at Pitt Thursday, home against Washington Saturday — needing a point, or…

243 Erixon assigned to AHL Whale

So I guess Anton Stralman is your No. 6 now, unless Eminger is getting closer to returning. From the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS TRANSACTION UPDATE New York, March 29, 2012 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has assigned defenseman Tim Erixon…

190 Rangers-Jets in review

Thoughts: 1) OK, so it’s 105 points with five games left, and while the Penguins have a game in hand, the Rangers have clinched the tiebreaker over the Pens. So if the Rangers go 2-3 for 109 points, Pittsburgh needs 10 out of a possible 12 points. If the Rangers…

Game 76. The contest is now closed. No more entries please. Thanks for playing and good luck. First of the final back-to-back set of the season. Ya boys have won three of their last four. They remain a point up on Pitt, which is playing the Islanders right now. Henrik…

516 It’s Go Time!

Game 74. Eight left after tonight. Holy mackeral. Ya boys on a two-game winning streak, finish out a seven-game homestand (4-2 so far) against a very, very desperate Baby Buffaloes team. The Baby Buffaloes have won two in a row, and haven’t lost in regulation in their last six (4-0-2).…

Leave it to my friend CCCP to make perfect sense. He did just around midnight as I was wrapping up the day with a headache. He’s right. A blog is a place for people to vent, and if that means a place to be negative or pessimistic or positive or…

202 Guest blogger SG21: Rangers-Lightning in review

Thoughts: 1) Rangers snuck away with a point here. Even with a two-goal lead early on, TB outshot and outpossessed the Blueshirts. The absence of Callahan and Del Zotto was evident in puck possession, grit and creativity. 2) Pre-game, I knew that we’d be talking about Dubinsky after the game.…

202 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) I said it before and I’ll say it again (though I’m sure it won’t placate any of the NNs, or Chicken Littles, the “fire Torts” gang or plain old trolls. If losing three out of five is as bad as it gets, or even four out of six,…

169 Rangers-Predators in review (updated)

Bizarre night topped by Jim Dolan, all smiles and giggles, popping into John Tortorella’s press conference. I think what happened is that Dolan was in Tortorella’s office and the coach asked him if he wanted to do the press conference instead of Torts. And Dolan took the dare and went…
