869 Rangers-Penguins & trade deadline in review

Thoughts: 1) Those first three goals. Surreal, wasn’t it? Just ridiculously surreal. That most of us were thinking the only question in this home-and-home would be “by how many goals would Pittsburgh sweep?” and that most of us were absolutely killing the Marian Gaborik trade, and for that to happen…

531 It’s Go Time! … Jets at Rangers

  Game 36. Jets at Rangers. Winnipeg makes the trip up from the Southeast for this big game, the Jets having as much trouble as your New York Rangers. Winnipeg is 2-4 in its last six, with a total of two goals scored in the four losses (sound familiar?). Ya…

504 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Bleak, bleaker, bleakest? With Winnipeg coming for a critical game Monday, the trade deadline Wednesday and then a home-and-home with Pittsburgh, this could get worse before it gets better. Seriously. 2) That said, I don’t think there’s a move or a player available, or a single need that…

888 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Canadiens

Game 34. Rangers at Canadiens. Ya boys have lost three of their last four (one of those in some random non-hockey related contest held after the game ended in a tie) and six of their last nine. They have scored five goals in those six losses, and 15 goals in…

1014 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Flyers

Game 32. Rangers at Flyers. Light up the Empire State Building in Orange and Black! The Rangers have lost two in a row, albeit one of those in a random non-hockey-related contest after the hockey game ended in a tie. They are 2-1-1 in their last four, which means five…

Hockey
724 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Not going to rail about the shootout, but with an all intra-conference schedule and a 48-game season, three-point games, and points for losing hockey games, are going to greatly impact the standings. There are piles of three-point games every night. And if you’re not in the party, getting…

Hockey
448 It’s Go Time! … Capitals at Rangers

Game 31. Capitals at Rangers. Ya boys have lost one in a row, four of six, five of eight. Hey, remember that game where they scored more than one goal, in Newark? That was the only such time they’ve hit the two-goal mark in the last six. They have scored…

168 Official announcement of Kris Newbury’s recall

For those joining late … Jeff Halpern was claimed off waivers by Montreal, and the Rangers also put Stu Bickel on waivers. Also, J.T. Miller left practice with a left wrist injury he suffered Thursday against Florida, and Arron Asham (back) declared himslf good to go for Sunday’s game against…

Hockey
1066 It’s Go Time! … Panthers at Rangers

Game 30. Panthers at Rangers. Holy cow, is it really Game 30 in a 48-game season? Ya boys on a two-game winning streak. They play the next two at home (Washington Sunday) then hit the road for three in a row and 11 of the final 17. Chris Kreider makes…

Hockey
694 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Jets

Game 26. Rangers at Jets. The Rangers — gasp! — have lost one in a row and two of three … and of course the sky is falling. Never mind that they’ve won five of seven. Still, full-panic mode goes into effect tonight if they lose on the frozen plains…

Hockey
737 It’s Go Time! … Flyers at Rangers

Game 21. Flyers at Rangers. Ya boys have won two in a row, one of those in a contest unrelated to hockey after the hockey game ended. Brad Richards, cheap-shotted by noted cheap-shot artist Patrick Kaleta on Sunday (Kaleta was suspended for five games) is out tonight with what is…

Hockey
495 It’s Go Time! … Lightnings at Rangers

Game 19. Lightning at Rangers. The cavalry, or most of it, is arriving just in time. Rick Nash (likely concussion) and Michael Del Zotto (likely hip) and Ryan McDonagh (who knows what his injury was/is?) will all play tonight. Matt Gilroy (flu) and Arron Asham (back spasms) will not play.…

108 John Tortorella pre-game presser

In case you missed it on Twitter: Rick Nash, Ryan McDonagh and Michael Del Zotto are all returning to the lineup tonight. Arron Asham (back spasms) and Matt Gilroy (flu) are out. Henrik Lundqvist in goal. Chris Kreider was assigned to Connecticut (AHL) today. John Tortorella spoke about J.T. Miller,…

Hockey
468 It’s Go Time! … Jets at Rangers

Game 18. Jets at Rangers. Ya boys come slip-sliding in, with three straight losses (0-2-1), and four in the last five (1-2-2). They begin a four-game homestand, after which they will have already played 14 of their 24 home games this season. In other words, 17 of their final 27…

310 No news is good news, or no news is bad news?

I don’t have a clue what we’re going to hear about the Rangers injuries today, or if we’re going to hear anything at all. Here’s my guess, though. If we hear anything — and by we, I mean you — it will be very good news or very, very bad…

Hockey
834 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Canadiens

Game 17. Rangers at Canadiens. Your boys have lost two in a row, except that, in the National Lockout League, one of those losses doesn’t count as a loss even though if you win one of those stupid post-game contests it counts as a win. Anyway, the Rangers have enough…
