185 Rangers-Lightning in review

Thoughts: 1) Happy Thanksgiving. There’s plenty for which to be thankful and far more important than a stupid hockey game. So I hope you enjoy the holiday with family. Please be careful on the roads and don’t even dream about drinking and driving, or using the phone while driving. And…

496 Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

Game 21. Rangers at Lightning. Happy Thanksgiving Eve, and to some of us, First Bleepin’ Snowstorm! Ya  boys looking to avenge that embarrassing, unacceptable (their words) 5-1 debacle to the Lightnings at MSG nine days ago.

46 Martin St. Louis: Making a forced deal work out

Here’s my story from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Martin St. Louis said that he was hoping for the best but expecting the worst in his return to Tampa as a Ranger Wednesday night. The emotion was multi-fold that of, for example, Ryan Callahan’s return to the Garden as an ex-Ranger…

Click here to read my story (with some very good quotes) from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This one was the worst. There’s no sugar-coating it. I’d say 15 or 16 of the Rangers’ skaters in last night’s game were going three-quarters speed, or as I like to call it, scrimmage speed.…

235 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here for a photo gallery from last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) I sure wish this could be all about the first 65 minutes of that hockey game. But it can’t because of the bizarro ending, which was nobody’s fault, but very unfortunate. Fact is, the correct call was made…

675 Rangers at Penguins … It’s Go Time!

Game 17. Rangers at Penguins. Ya boys go into the hornets’ next that they stirred up Tuesday when they embarrassed the Penguins and ended Pittsburgh’s seven-game winning streak. The Pens beat the Maple Leaves 2-1 in Toronto Friday night, so they are tired, but also 8-1 in their last…

118 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

Thoughts: 1) Is it possible that this team will be faster overall than last year? Yessiree. Speed kills, and when  you replace Brian Boyle with (take your pick), replace Brad Richards with J.T. Miller, have a full season of Martin St. Louis’ wheels plus Chris Kreider from the start, maybe…

1613 NHL free-agency day … It’s Go Time!

Here’s my column from The Journal News and lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello In pretty much any other year, the Rangers would probably be overpaying, or attempting to overpay Paul Stastny or some other free agent when the market opens Tuesday at noon. But this isn’t any other year. This is…
