686 Rangers-Bruins in review; Live Chat Tuesday

Thoughts: 1) Ryan Callahan’s last game as a Ranger? Was it? Was this the way for the guy to go out, off two God-awful losses? I suppose there remains a chance that Glen Sather doesn’t trade him by Wednesday. Two chances actually. One, Callahan gets off his seventh-year demand and…

344 Guest blogger: afrey94 … Rangers report card

Rangers Report Card By afrey94 With the Olympics behind us and only about 25 percent of the season left before the start of the NHL playoffs, this seems as good a time as any to look back on the season so far.  Instead of simply gauging grades based on statistics…

318 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Hypothetical question? If you had your choice of beating Edmonton and losing in Pittsburgh or losing to Edmonton and winning in Pittsburgh, wouldn’t you have preferred this? Really too bad they tossed away that game vs. the Oilers, could/should have been six in a row going into the…

159 Rangers-Oilers in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers weren’t God-awful, just awful enough to lose. They sure have played worse games than this one, but this was their worst in the last six, since that Islanders game at the Garden before the Stadium Series and the competitive loss to St. Louis. And that was…

Game review
561 Rangers-Avalanches in review

Thoughts: 1) Ryan Callahan. He’s first not because he scored two goals and had an assist, seven hits, six shots on goal, and a blocked shot, or because he was the first star or because they were chanting his name at the Garden. He’s first because he’s overshadowing everything the…

292 Super Sunday, but not so super for Ryan Callahan

First a couple of things: As always, we’ll have our own Super Bowl Party right here on Rangers Report. Anybody who wants to watch the game together, there will be a special “It’s Go Time!” post half an hour or so before kickoff. Bring some chicken wings, little hot dogs…

89 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) The whole Ryan Callahan situation threw a cloud over the game, IMO. And will continue to hover over whatever the Rangers do from now until the March 5 trade deadline, or perhaps the Olympic-break roster freeze Feb. 7. If they think they won’t be able to re-sign Callahan,…

36 A couple of charitable endeavors for great causes:

I’m headed to Yankee Stadium, where the Devils and Rangers are practicing today before tomorrow’s Stadium Series game. Hope to have audio and video from there later.

339 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) The Blues obviously got the memo from Coach Ken Hitchcock, or maybe they figured it out themselves. They were embarrassed by the Devils two nights earlier, and as we all knew, they would be a lot better at the Garden. Much, much, much tighter. Nothing that we didn’t…

303 Rangers-Islanders in review (updated)

Thoughts: 1) It really is remarkable how much more the Devils and Islanders have seemed to want the games against the Rangers than the Rangers have. Part of it is that the Rangers don’t treat them as top rivals anymore. They don’t. The Islanders certainly do. You can only imagine…

524 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Semantics, maybe. But to me, it’s a streak when you win a bunch of games. It’s a roll when the wins are impressive and complete, when the performance goes top to bottom, and when the best, most important players are playing like the best, most important players. So…

281 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) Derek Stepan. Breakout game? I don’t know. He had that hat trick Nov. 2 after going his first 12 without a goal, then scored four in his next 36 games, including none in the last 13. And while I certainly don’t judge him solely on goals, he needs…
