369 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) A few things jumped out at me. For one, the tempo of this game was pretty high, much higher than the home opener. It’s very obvious that the Rangers are a much faster team with Chris Kreider and J.T. Miller here and then with Carl Hagelin coming back,…

Alain Vigneault’s post-game press conference video is up above. For boxscore, click here. Thoughts: 1) OK, I know I sometimes get annoyed when you guys complain about the officials. But last night, if you didn’t complain about the officials I would suggest getting your pulse checked. I don’t believe that…

482 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) That’s two good-looking hockey clubs. Twelve goals in eight games for ya boys. Doesn’t matter what they do well or not, how they compete or not, who’s in goal and who’s not. Twelve goals in eight games isn’t getting it done. They should be sending Thank Yous to…

167 Rangers-Capitals in review

Before we get into it, a reminder. We will have a Live Chat today at noon. Be there. Or else. Thoughts: 1) The hit on Derek Stepan by Troy Brouwer. I thought the one single replay they showed wasn’t convincing that it was a dirty hit. But the Rangers sure…

685 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Capitals

Game 6. Rangers at Capitals. Finally, a game against a team from the Leastern Conference and the Lesstropolitan Division. First meeting since Game 7 last spring. Ya boys play their sixth in a row on the road (12th counting preseason). This, by comparison, is Washington’s fifth home game of the…

654 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron. I thought early on, when the Blues were on the Rangers a bit, he was pretty good, and he moved the puck, too, which really helps a struggling defensive team. Then, ugh. The second and third goals were all on him. It’s ridiculous to expect him…

702 Rangers-Mighty Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) I know it’s considered heresy to say this, but Henrik Lundqvist hasn’t looked good since the preseason began. 2) That third goal was a 2-on-2, no defensive mistake at all. Maybe it was deflected. Probably was. I don’t place blame on deflections. If it wasn’t deflected, it needs…

594 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Mighty Ducks

Game 4. Rangers at Mighty Ducks. ICYMI: Rick Nash was sent back to New York by the team and thus will not play tonight or Saturday in St. Louis with what is almost certainly another concussion. Jesper Fast takes his place in the lineup. Brad Richards switches back to center,…

Hockey
372 Rangers-Sharks in review

Thoughts: 1) Yeah, defending is boring. This is much better. 2) The noise is already starting about the Brad Stuart hit on Rick Nash. Oooh, the replay is inconclusive. Oooh, maybe it wasn’t an elbow. Maybe the head wasn’t the initial point of contact. Whatever. This was a head shot,…

Hockey
392 Rangers-Coyotes in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers’ pace was much, much better than in past years, and will be a more enjoyable watch … if and only if it’s successful. And if they can maintain it against more gifted offensive teams. For those keeping score at home, it’s now 10 goals in seven…

Here’s my preview from The Journal News and Lohud.com (unedited version): By Rick Carpiniello FORWARDS: If, if, if, if. The Rangers’ forward group will be better – and really, it must – if Brad Richards bounces back from the worst season of his career; if Derick Brassard proves he can…
