110 Rangers-Capitals in review

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…

549 It’s Go Time!

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).…

353 Rangers-Senators in review

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…

354 Rangers-Islanders in review

First place in the East. Five straight wins. Top two or three in team defense. Fewest losses in the whole freakin’ National Hockey League. And your New York Rangers really haven’t nearly hit their stride or been nearly 100 percent healthy yet. ‘Nuff  said. Thoughts: 1) Seven goals allowed in…

135 Rangers-Flyers in review

Merry Christmas Eve! The lead to my story in The Journal News and LoHud.com today was this: “Laughing all the way.” Because the Rangers go into the holiday break dancing, off four straight wins, three fairly decisive divisional victories in four nights, and in first place in the Patrick Division.…

601 It’s Go Time!

Game 25. First of three in four nights, and four in six. Rangers still one away from 2,500 all-time wins. Anton Stralman makes his second start as a Ranger, in place of injured Michael Sauer (concussion). Steve Eminger moves up to the second pair with Michael Del Zotto. Erik Christensen…

93 Tortorella pre-game presser

John Tortorella spoke about Michael Del Zotto’s progress, about what he expects from Anton Stralman tonight, and how his team has, for two seasons, dealt with injuries without being affected. Here is the pre-game press conference: John Tortorella:

727 It’s Go Time!

Game 21 — or the “sort of” one-quarter pole. Ya boys on a two-game winning streak and a run of six consecutive wins on Garden ice. Cover your eyes, or ignore the next few lines: Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins are here! Whoopeeeee! Everybody celebrate. Bring frankincense and myrrh…

First and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you get to spend it with people who are more important to you than the Rangers are. Be thankful for what’s really important. And here’s a little piece of info for you: The Winter Classic jerseys aren’t going to be white. They’re going to…
