335 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) This would have been more fun if they’d met a month or so ago, when they were both tearing it up. Would have been more of a measuring stick for both teams. 2) Would have been more fun for me, anyway, if the Rangers wore their traditional blue…

186 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) I have maintained that the synchronized fights are kind of silly and stupid, and most of the time they are. So I guess I’m a hypocrite and an imbecile … though I have also said that it’s different in a big rivalry game, and it’s different when there’s…

9 Post-game interviews

First of all, Brandon Prust is fine, John Tortorella said. Don’t have audio of this, but Pete DeBoer said: “I guess in John’s world you can come into our building and start your tough guys, but we can’t do the same in here. “He’s either got short term memory loss…

503 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) I did a lot of kidding the last few days about “Must-win” games and I really don’t believe there are any such things until you get to a game you really must win, like Game 82 the last two seasons, and Game 5 against Washington last spring. That…

785 It’s Go Time!

Game 68. Ya boys, on their first three-game (regulation) losing streak of the season … so this is a MUST-WIN! Right? ;) The Rangers begin a seven-game homestand. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal. Ryan Callahan (foot) and Michael Del Zotto (hip) are out. Brandon Dubinsky (sinus) hopes to return. Mats…

349 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) Sixteen regulation losses in 65 games. So please don’t go Full Chicken Little today. Though I’m sure some of you will, and some of you, in the back of your warped little minds, are finding some “told you so” satisfaction of the first regulation loss in six games,…

Sorry for the delay. Serious internet issues here. First, John Tortorella said that Dan Girardi’s fine. In other words, he was benched after the giveaway in the third. Whether it was punishment, or for rest he needs since his game has slipped the last few, we’ll have to speculate. No…

202 Guest blogger SG21: Rangers-Lightning in review

Thoughts: 1) Rangers snuck away with a point here. Even with a two-goal lead early on, TB outshot and outpossessed the Blueshirts. The absence of Callahan and Del Zotto was evident in puck possession, grit and creativity. 2) Pre-game, I knew that we’d be talking about Dubinsky after the game.…

261 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Without arguably their two most valuable players and leaders, the Rangers just chug along. Then they have to come from behind, have guys benched and banged up during the game. Doesn’t matter. No problem. Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron needed a good game, and let’s be honest, the Rangers needed him…

655 Happy Leap Day!

The Rangers leap into the final quarter of the season tomorrow in Carolina. I was looking at their record again and thinking, if they go 12-9 these last 21 games — which is conservative — they’ll have 52 wins and 110 points. The 1993-94 team holds the franchise records with…

609 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) 40-15-6, 86 points with a quarter of a season left. You kiddin’ me? 2) Henrik Lundqvist. Seven straight seasons of 30 wins. Forty-three career shutouts. Eight this season; 10-2-0 with a 1.24 goals against average, .952 save percentage and four shutouts in his last 12 games. A record…

Some interesting stuff. Henrik Lundqvist talking about another 30-win season, and about playing in a game where there aren’t many shots but some of them are dangerous. Brad Richards talking about the way he is re-learning to play. Carl Hagelin talking about being mentored by Richards. Brandon Dubinsky with some…

500 No Rick Nash, no significant moves for Rangers

As of Sunday evening, 21 hours before the deadline, it sure sounds as if the Rangers will not be getting Rick Nash. It also sounds as if, unless something major changes, they will not be making any significant moves before the 3 p.m. deadline tomorrow. Guessing that Columbus wouldn’t back…

I’m not going to attempt to talk some of you off the ledge. You’re nuts if you are in a panic over this little slide here. And if I knew a bookie, I’d put down a bet that the Rangers, because of who they are this year, will respond in…

592 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

 Thoughts: 1) How the byfuglien are the Byfuglien-less Blackhawks where they are? … and how did they lose nine in a row? … Not that they were great in this game. They sure weren’t. They got a bunch of gifts in the first period, the benefit of some calls, a…

478 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) This sure wasn’t the most exciting game ever played. But you know what? Ya boys don’t mind that either. Want to grind? Want to make it a battle for chances? Fine with them. Afterwards, John Tortorella said this is the type of game the Rangers expect to have…

First the news. Ryan McDonagh said he’s not worried about his left knee at all. He said it’s an injury he’s had in the past where the kneecap tweaks and there’s some pain but it subsides. He also got the Broadway Hat for the first time this year — hard…

100 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) So the Flyers are frustrated, losing seven in a row, including all five this year, to the Best Team in the East? Well, maybe they should stop playing all those idiots and understand that the Rangers not only won’t be intimidated, but they’ll be happy to play that…
