256 Guest blogger: Mark Romeo … 2013 Report Cards

“2013 New York Rangers Report Card” by Mark Romeo Hard to believe it’s been only five months since we were collectively wishing to see less of Gary Bettman and more of Sam Rosen, but it has been.  Tough to call this Rangers season much of anything other than a disappointment,…

311 Game 5: Rangers-Bruins in review

A picture is worth a thousand words, and the picture right here, well, just wow. Look at the five Rangers around Henrik Lundqvist and Gregory Campbell, look at who they are in a must-win Game 5 of a second-round playoff series, and how nobody can prevent the fourth-line Boston center…

737 It’s Go Time! … Game 4: Bruins at Rangers

As you’ve seen/heard by now, Brad Richards is a healthy scratch tonight, and is certainly done as a Ranger (unless they somehow come back in this series, maybe?) … He will be bought out after the season, the Rangers paying him $24 million  over 14 years as a parting gift…

353 Game 1: Rangers-Bruins in review

Game 1 wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I expected it to be a little meaner, and I though the Bruins would have more surges, and I expected the Rangers to play more along the walls. Actually, I thought, the Rangers moved the puck pretty freely, didn’t forecheck…

78 Rangers-Bruins position-by-position matchups

From the Journal News and LoHud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – The Rangers and Bruins won’t need mirrors this week. They can just look at each other while they’re grinding out games in their first playoff series in 40 years. Here’s a look at the matchups: FORWARDS: The Bruins have…

584 Game 7: Rangers-Capitals in review

You guys who’ve been around since the GAG Line, or earlier, must be feeling pretty cool today, looking at the first Rangers-Bruins playoff series in 40 years. I know I do. I will say this, too, and I kinda touched on it when we were discussing good and bad matchups.…

472 Game 6: Rangers-Capitals in review

OK. So for the third time in four playoff series, and in the span of 13 months, your Rangers are headed to another heart-attack Game 7 for you. Take out the Pepto or the adult beverage or whatever helps you get through these games. Thoughts: 1) I think I told…

303 Game 5: Rangers-Capitals in review

So I was going to try to write something witty to get youse off the ledges, or something about how this is not really over. Well, maybe I should go that way, because what this series has shown us, and pretty much all the other series have shown us, and…

351 Game 3: Rangers-Capitals in review

First, apologies for all the tech difficulties lately. I have no idea what’s going on. We had some dead audio, and this blog post without photos, and no photo gallery. I will let you know later if we’re doing a Live Chat today. Onto Game 3 … So is it…

487 It’s Go Time! … Devils at Rangers

As you know, the Rangers can finish anywhere from sixth to eighth seed, the latter of which will bring them the dreaded first-round meeting with the top-seeded Pittsburgh Penguins. To get that, the Rangers will have to lose in regulation today. If they get a point in any manner, the…

12 Pre-game interview: John Tortorella (audio)

John Tortorella is in playoff mode. Short answers. Though there really weren’t many questions pre-game. He’s going with his full lineup, which includes Henrik Lundqvist in goal, Kris Newbury and Arron Asham in for Ryane Clowe and Matt Gilroy. Tortorella said the goal is to move up as high as…

427 Rangers-Panthers in review

What an opportunity the Rangers let get away in Sunrise, Fla. Beat the worst team in hockey, whether in regulation, overtime or the tiddly-winks contest, and the Rangers would have clinched a playoff spot and jumped over the Islanders into the sixth seed. They should thank their lucky stars that…

192 Rangers-Flyers in review

Another great night for the Rangers. A woeful loss to a bad team in Philadelphia, and all the teams around them in the playoff race – Islanders, Ottawa and Winnipeg – won. The good news, if there is any, is that the Rangers are still in eighth based on a…

280 Rangers-Islanders in review

Still not completely sure what to make of the Rangers’ 1-0 win over the Islanders Saturday night. The Rangers didn’t play great. They didn’t play lousy. But it sure as heck was fun to watch, and the atmosphere in that old, dilapidated building was pretty cool and very loud. Thoughts:…

261 Rangers-Penguins in review

OK, show of hands, how many thought the Rangers would get three points out of this home-and-home series against the prematurely-crowned Stanley Cup champions? Two points? None? Seriously, if I had told you on Wednesday afternoon when everybody was nuts over the Marian Gaborik trade that they’d get three points,…
