414 Blue Jackets at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 58. Blue Jackets at Rangers. Click here for my pre-game video. Twenty-five games left. Holy shishkebab. And the trade deadline eight days away. Seems this season just started. Rangers are 8-1-2 in their last 11, 6-1-2 since Henrik Lundqvist was sidelined with a vascular injury in his neck.…

160 Rangers-Canucks in review

Click here for my game story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) It’s so cold I saw a politician with his hands in his own pockets. It’s so cold, I was in traffic and some guy flipped me the mitten. 2) Ah, yes, the shootout. You know how I feel about it…

416 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) I forgot already the word Alain Vigneault used about the way the Rangers handled the third-period lead. I think he said “choppy” or something like that. Whatever it was, I agree. I thought the entire game last night was choppy. Far from perfect. And against a lesser opponent…

440 Rangers at Blue Jackets … It’s Go Time!

Game 42. Rangers at Blue Jackets. A lot of news for a game day. ICYMI: 1) Derek Stepan skated this morning and is skating in warmups tonight and he will be a game-time decision, according to Alain Vigneault. If Stepan plays, AV did not say which forward comes out.…

Click here to see lohud.com’s photo gallery from Saturday’s 3-0 Rangers win in Philadelphia. Thoughts: 1) This is a really good team you’re watching here, folks. A really good team that has played a bunch of bad games. Just trying to figure it out. That was the first time Alain…

532 Rangers at Blue Jackets … It’s Go Time!

Game 2. Rangers at Blue Jackets. The undefeated Rangers visit Rick Nash’s old haunt. Nash is on pace for 164 goals and 246 points, which would both be records. Cam Talbot starts in goal, so Henrik Lundqvist gets the home opener Sunday against the Toronto Maple Leaves. Tanner Glass…

211 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) This was an onions game. A big boy pants game. And a lot of Rangers showed up, played with onions, put their big boy pants on. A lot of them battled more than they had all season. Rick Nash was obviously the leader, right from the start, targeted,…

403 Another day of scoreboard watching

I’m guessing that for you guys, about the best part of this time of year is that pretty much every night, whether your team is playing or not, there are games that greatly interest you. A bunch of teams who have them will be burning one of their games-in-hand on…

527 Rangers-Sharks in review

Thoughts: 1) Going to get this right out of the way first. Video replay this season has just been an epic fail. EPIC. And these people who think shootouts and the new realignment are good ideas want to add more replay???? Seriously, if this is what video review comes up…

609 It’s Go Time! … Blue Jackets at Rangers

Game 44. Blue Jackets at Rangers. The Rangers come off (yet another) roller coaster of a road trip in which they went 3-2. They have won five of their last seven overall and their last two at home. The Rangers are a game over NHL-.500 for the eighth time…

Hockey
741 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) Where to begin?  Well, that’s actually pretty simple. The Rangers have a ton of holes, they have a dearth of skill and they are soft. OK, fine. But none of that matters if the guy in the net doesn’t stop the puck. They can fix some of their…

634 It’s Go Time! … Blue Jackets at Rangers

Game 33. Blue Jackets at Rangers. The reunion of the former Rangers and former Blue Jackets is the story line, but tonight’s game is really about the Rangers’ need for a victory, and having to get it with a depleted lineup. Big, tough 2010 first-round draft pick Dylan McIlrath…

Hockey
550 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) Remember when some of us were firing Alain Vigneault before the home opener? His system has now produced a lot of offensive chances, AND good defense (nine straight with two or fewer GA). Wonder where this team might be if not for the early injuries and the idiotic…

Hockey
514 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) What a difference, or a slim difference, between winning and losing. Henrik Lundqvist made some huge saves on the early Pittsburgh power play, got help from a post, got Ryan Callahan to sweep one off the goal line for him, made another great save nine seconds after Brian…
