749 Game 7: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Big as the building. Pretty much the same core group of guys, five Game 7 wins in the last seven series, 10-2 in elimination games. This is a team that never, in 16 opportunities, had come back from 3-1 to win a series, never, in four tries, had…

Game 7. Rangers at Penguins. Here we go with another Game 7 thrill ride for/with ya boys, their fifth in the last seven playoff series over three springtimes (they have won four in a row and seven of the last eight Game 7s since ’92.). And another elimination game…

138 Rangers at their best when pushed to the brink

Here’s my column from The Journal News and Lohud.com today: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – There is no way to truly understand why the Rangers are so good in these situations. Well, there is the common thread of the goalie stopping pretty much everything when everything is on the line.…

290 Game 6: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Gotta admit, going against my much ballyhooed belief that there is no carryover from game to game in a playoff series (there isn’t), I thought the Rangers were done like dinner after Game 4. I mean, they just stunk it up in a huge game. And, boy, has…

34 For Rangers and Penguins, another day to be desperate

Happy Mother’s Day! Here’s my column on the urgency both the Rangers and Penguins need to display in Game 6 tonight. By Rick Carpiniello Desperation. It’s such a simple word when it comes to the Stanley Cup playoffs. Yet, watching this Rangers-Pittsburgh Penguins series, you have to wonder. Do coaches…

506 Game 4: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Haven’t said this much this year, but I don’t even know where to begin. It was going to take a monumental effort to beat Pittsburgh, a much better team, in this series. The way the Rangers played in Game 4, they wouldn’t have beaten anybody. I thought a…

422 Game 2: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Are you really surprised that this series is 1-1? Seriously? I’m not at all. I’m never, ever surprised that any series is 1-1 after two. Heck, maybe you should be surprised it isn’t 2-0 Penguins. 2) So let’s get this streak thing right out of the way. Ya…

536 Game 1: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Not declaring anything yet. But if the Rangers can go into that building against that team, not have a 60-minute effort, and still come out of there with the win, well, maybe they’re going to be fine after all in this series. Because during this game, when they…

601 Game 6: Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, the best part for you guys and for the Rangers is that they don’t lead the series. Because since 2009, while they’ve been lousy when leading a series — a record 12 straight losses with the series lead — they’ve been pretty darn good when tied or…
