165 Rangers-Penguins in review

Wow. I’ll tell you, boys and girls, that was as good a regular-season victory as you could have. It would have been a great win at 1-0, it would have been a painful loss at 2-1, and whatever happened at 2-2 in OT or shootout would have been OK because…

719 It’s Go Time!

Lundqvist back in. Boogaard’s out with a bruised hand after his two heavyweight bouts last night. White back in, too. No pruchas, then. Our buddy Andrew Gross has some quotes, though only “no comment” type of quotes, regarding Erik Christensen saying that Sean Avery sucker punched Ladislav Smid Sunday. In…

43 Caps-Rangers in review

Thoughts at the crack of noon: 1) I think it was good that John Tortorella was a little testy after this one. He should be. His team played well enough to win, and a couple of very soft plays (by some soft players in a few instances) cost them what…

Brandon Dubinsky: “We played the ideal game. Obviously we had a couple of breakdowns that ended up in the back of our net. Those are tough. I think we’ve still got to generate some more. I think we’re cycling, but we’re just not getting enough off those cycles. We’re cycling…

52 Blues-Blueshirts in review

Thoughts on a game that really could have used a little more action: 1) My head nearly exploded over the huge deal that was made of the disallowed goal. The most critical point was not made (on TV) until Dave Maloney left the radio booth and got onto the post-game…

160 Rangers-Devils in review (sort of)

I don’t have a lot to say, or much time to say it. Because, simply, I didn’t see the game last night, and because I couldn’t find a Rangers in 60 (only a Boomer and Carton in 60). 1) If you’re ever in that situation and can’t find a replay…

105 Rangers-Leaves tonight

I like these quick turnarounds. Of course, I didn’t have to catch a flight early this morning, then go through customs, and arrive at my hotel too early for check-in, etc. as I did in the good ol’ days. Below is an abbreviated version of tonight’s notes (to read more,…

33 Tortorella post-game

John Tortorella:  “We fought back a couple of times. I thought we did a lot of good things underneath the hashmark offensively. We just couldn’t get the lead. And it’s frustrating.” On the PK and d-zone coverage: “You look at the goal in the second period where they go up…

95 Reason for optimism

Hey, sorry I’m late again. Had an unexpected situation here at Blog HQ. Nothing major. ——————– As I said yesterday, the three wins in four nights reinforced my belief that this team is better than last year, and should make the playoffs — no guarantee, obviously, with so many teams…

John Tortorella: On what he liked best tonight. “Not one particular thing. The first two periods, I thought, throughout most of our team concept, I thought we were good. We were aggressive, again we handled the neutral zone well, our power play had some good looks — we don’t finish…

Hockey
75 Tortorella pre-game

First the news. As I tweeted earlier, Brandon Prust will play, though I can’t imagine he’ll be very attractive with that eye. Jeremy Williams may also play, in place of Todd White. Same lineup otherwise. Tortorella wouldn’t say whether Williams will play on the power play, where he excelled in…

188 Rangers-Leaves in review

Some thoughts: 1) Ryan Callahan didn’t score again. He did everything but score. He created chances, had chances, and did all those Callahan things he always does, too.His best game of the season. Easily. 2) Brandon Dubinsky’s played some good games since the season began. I thought this was his…

Almost crack of noon. Sorry kids. Been burning the candle at both ends (without the fun) and it finally caught up to me. Here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today. Some thoughts about the game yesterday. 1) You know I don’t sugarcoat things, so maybe you’ll respect…

170 Rangers-Sabres in review

I gotta tell you, I met Derek Stepan the day before the Traverse City tournament, and I thought, “Wow, this kid is confident and he is mature.” But I hadn’t seen him play. Then I saw him play, and I thought, “Wow, this kid is pretty good.” Then I spoke…
