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…

143 Rangers-Islanders in review

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…

197 Rangers-Flyers in review

I truly believe that these four wins over the Flyers won’t mean jack-squat if the Rangers wind up in a playoff series against them. It doesn’t work that way. But I also truly believe that the Rangers are better. And here’s the thing. The Flyers have more skill. The Rangers…

First this: The Rangers will (or maybe they have already) send tapes of Brandon Prust’s fight with Tom Sestito to the league for review. At the very least, they believe Sestito pulled Prust’s hair — which was pretty obvious from the replays. At the worst, there’s the possibity that Sestito…

219 Rangers-Bruins in review

Hockey Gods. John Tortorella referenced the Hockey Gods the one night this week, when Marian Gaborik was incorrectly called for a double-minor penalty when one opponent’s stick. and not Gaborik’s, hit the face of another opponent. And the Rangers, rightly, killed the penalties. Tortorella said the Hockey Gods have a…

202 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) I said it before and I’ll say it again (though I’m sure it won’t placate any of the NNs, or Chicken Littles, the “fire Torts” gang or plain old trolls. If losing three out of five is as bad as it gets, or even four out of six,…

169 Rangers-Predators in review (updated)

Bizarre night topped by Jim Dolan, all smiles and giggles, popping into John Tortorella’s press conference. I think what happened is that Dolan was in Tortorella’s office and the coach asked him if he wanted to do the press conference instead of Torts. And Dolan took the dare and went…
