329 Game 2: Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Just please, please, please don’t expect that this is going to be easy. First of all, remember in ’96, the last time these teams played, Montreal won the first two at MSG, then the Rangers won four in a row, three in Montreal. Never saw that coming. But…

227 Game 1: Rangers-Canadiens in review

If you haven’t seen it, check out the photo gallery one post down. Let me know what you think. Thoughts: 1) Ghosts, ghouls, goblins? Get outta here. Gone, gone, gone. That can no longer be a factor in this series. Now it’s just hockey. Now Henrik Lundqvist is Henrik Lundqvist.…

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…

1080 Game 7: Rangers at Penguins … It’s Go Time!

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…
