656 Rangers-Capitals in review

Since there was no post-game, here’s John Tortorella’s presser from Blueshirts United. Thoughts: 1) Ryan Callahan=Beast. How about the two plays he made on the 5-on-3 (after losing the draw)? Stat line: Deflection goal, five hits, three shots on goal, two others missed, three blocks, a takeaway. 2) Another nice…

626 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Capitals

[polldaddy poll=6951656 align=”left”] Game 24. Rangers at Capitals. Ya boys begin a four-game road trip as they hit the half-way mark of this Bettmaned 48-game season. They lost a four-game winning streak with that loss to Ottawa Friday at the Garden. They can jump over New Jersey into seventh place in…

834 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) Most of the time, you can analyze a game and say this team deserved to win, or this team deserved to lose. Last night was one of those games that, seriously, could have gone either way, no problem. The only thing that would concern me a little bit,…

268 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) The Marc Staal injury. I don’t know what to make of it. You just hope something like that isn’t serious. Freakin’ scary though, wasn’t it. I was just mentioning to somebody in the pressbox last night that there were an awful lot of players on both teams with…

475 Rangers-Baby Buffaloes in review

Thoughts: 1) This was more like last year for the Rangers. They got punched in the mouth and all of a sudden they decided to show up. Well, it wasn’t even a punch in the mouth, it was a dangerous, intentional, filthy hit by a cheap-shot artist of the lowest…

Don’t forget today’s noon Live Chat right here. You can check in from the ledge. Thoughts: 1) For a team that’s played just 16 games, there have sure been a a lot of them for which I really don’t have an explanation. 2) I thought it was fitting, though, that…

1017 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Senators

[polldaddy poll=6912259 align=”left”] Game 16. Rangers at Senators. Ya boys will be one-third of the way through this Bettmaned season after tonight’s game in beautiful downtown Kanata, Ont., just a short 55-minute, bumper-to-bumper, straight-into-the-setting sun, 3 mph ride from Canada’s capital. This is the first meeting since the nasty seven-game…

482 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Even when you’ve been doing this as long as I have, and you’re sitting there writing about what an awful game you’re watching, sometimes you hesitate. I ask myself, is it just because the crowd is dead that it seems awful? Is it just because one team is…

Hockey
224 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Remember last year when the Rangers were almost always the more physical team, the team that won more battles and dictated play, and often the faster team? I thought this was a game that kind of reminded me of last year more than any other this season. 2)…

231 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron. Let’s talk about fairness here. Because it isn’t fair if every time this guy plays and the Rangers don’t win, that it’s his fault, or the fault of the decision to play him. He’s not going to go 8-0 or 10-0 or whatever. He’s 1-0-1. Three…

77 So what happens with Brian Boyle, J.T. Miller, etc.?

Because it was such a big part of the discussion during the live chat (you can replay it on the thread below), and since J.T. Miller admitted he struggled in Boston, and since John Tortorella said he’s still undecided about a lineup for tomorrow night’s game against the Islanders (the…

Before we look back at last night’s mayhem, remember we will have a Live Chat right here at noon today. Should be some interesting discussion given what happened and how it happened last night. Be there. Or else. Thoughts: 1) I haven’t had the opportunity to say this in a…

[polldaddy poll=6890643 align=”left”]  Game 11. Lightnings at Rangers. Dan Girardi is expected to return after missing two games with an undisclosed injury. He will replace Steve Eminger on defense. Otherwise it looks like the same lineup (and the same line combinations) that beat the Islanders Thursday, meaning Brian Boyle is…
