335 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) This would have been more fun if they’d met a month or so ago, when they were both tearing it up. Would have been more of a measuring stick for both teams. 2) Would have been more fun for me, anyway, if the Rangers wore their traditional blue…

First and foremost, thanks again to Carp for giving me the opportunity to take his place in the lineup for this game. There have been numerous occasions this season in which the Rangers goaltending has been the difference. Tonight, the tables were turned. Semyon Varlamov was a brick wall in…

237 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) That is the best team in the East, no doubt at all, with the best skill, a goalie who can get hot and stay hot, and a team that can play it rough and nasty, or any which way, and on an absolute roll. And Kris Letang…

361 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) I could not have dreamed the Rangers would be where they are without Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik paying on the first line together all year.  Imagine if this works now? Imagine if the Rangers finally have that legit first-line with two proven first-line players and a rookie…

503 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) I did a lot of kidding the last few days about “Must-win” games and I really don’t believe there are any such things until you get to a game you really must win, like Game 82 the last two seasons, and Game 5 against Washington last spring. That…

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…

349 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) Sixteen regulation losses in 65 games. So please don’t go Full Chicken Little today. Though I’m sure some of you will, and some of you, in the back of your warped little minds, are finding some “told you so” satisfaction of the first regulation loss in six games,…

Sorry for the delay. Serious internet issues here. First, John Tortorella said that Dan Girardi’s fine. In other words, he was benched after the giveaway in the third. Whether it was punishment, or for rest he needs since his game has slipped the last few, we’ll have to speculate. No…

Hockey
245 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers have thieved games like this the past couple of years, but in most of those, it was Henrik Lundqvist doing the stealing. This one was hard to explain. Except that, as usual, the Rangers stuck to the plan, kept on playing, and somehow got two critical…

NBC cut away — of course, Tiger was making a move … a golf move — so you probably didn’t see that after Milan Lucic jumped Ryan McDonagh behind the net after the buzzer, the two teams nearly got together at center ice. John Scott was jawing at Zdeno Chara…

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.…

261 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Without arguably their two most valuable players and leaders, the Rangers just chug along. Then they have to come from behind, have guys benched and banged up during the game. Doesn’t matter. No problem. Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron needed a good game, and let’s be honest, the Rangers needed him…

521 It’s Go Time!

Game 62. Start of the toughest month of the year, and of Southeastern back-to-backs (at Tampa Bay tomorrow) and of three in less than four days (Boston at MSG Sunday at 12:30). Ya boys have won two in a row after an 0-1-1 skid (imagine, we’re calling 0-1-1 a skid?).…

609 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) 40-15-6, 86 points with a quarter of a season left. You kiddin’ me? 2) Henrik Lundqvist. Seven straight seasons of 30 wins. Forty-three career shutouts. Eight this season; 10-2-0 with a 1.24 goals against average, .952 save percentage and four shutouts in his last 12 games. A record…

Some interesting stuff. Henrik Lundqvist talking about another 30-win season, and about playing in a game where there aren’t many shots but some of them are dangerous. Brad Richards talking about the way he is re-learning to play. Carl Hagelin talking about being mentored by Richards. Brandon Dubinsky with some…
