51 Tortorella pre-game

Will have more in a moment. The only news: Wojtek Wolski will skate in warmup. He wants to play. If he can’t, Kris Newbury will. Back with Tortorella quotes in a few. The most interesting stuff was about how he doesn’t want Prust fighting the heavyweights, and how he takes…

302 Rangers-Penguins in review

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m back. Did I miss anything? Seriously, is there anything I need to know? I mean, I watched all the games, but I really didn’t check in here too much. So, anything going on here? Before I get back to work, special Thank Youse to Sean Mayer…

246 Red Wings-Rangers in review … by cwgatti

Same old story for the NY Rangers. Keep it close for 55 minutes, and then turn it on. That scenario didn’t bode well for our boys: On the road against a superior team that has been shut out two games in a row. I wasn’t betting on tonight being the end…

112 Habs-Rangers in review … and our contest winner nailed it

First, congratulations to our friend Dreadnaught, who not only correctly predicted the 2-0 final score, but also had the No. 1 tiebreaker (which wasn’t needed) with Scott Gomez having the game-winning goal. Dreadnaught, please e-mail me at rcarpini@Lohud.com so we can arrange to get your tickets to you. ———————– Now.…

239 Devils-Rangers in review

As I’ve told youse guys, I’m going away from here for a week. Not my choice. I’ll schedule some blank canvas posts, and my sports editor, Sean Mayer (Rangers fan), will put up some of the pre-game and post-game notes the Rangers send along and any news that breaks, and…

378 Three words sum up the season so far

Here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today: NEW YORK — It is the quote of the season for the Rangers, because it is everything they are about. Brandon Prust, the tough-as-shoe-leather winger, had been playing with at least two bad injuries — a bum shoulder and a…

168 Panthers-Rangers in review

Ah, what a nice way to start the all-star break. A fluky loss by your boys, and then another snow storm. I remember being on a road trip in Houston with the Mets in 1986, and they were on a roll when the all-star break hit, and they didn’t want…

25 Tortorella post-game

John Tortorella: “We did a lot of good things. Fluky goals and we weren’t able to overcome it. I thought we were, even when we were down 4-3. I still thought we were going to come back, but we weren’t able to get it done tonight. As I said, I…

First the news: Del Zotto, Grachev, Newbury, Dupont and Kolarik are all going to Connecticut to play two AHL games this weekend. Most of them will be back for the first game after the break, as only Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi are expected to return from injuries. Back with…

207 Rangers-Thrashers in review

That’s a win that feels like two. Or three. Given what they had going into the game, and what they lost (Girardi and Prust) during the game, and again being behind after two periods, and tying it up in the third, and playing a wild overtime and then having the…

74 Rangers-Leaves in review

Don’t put too much stock in the score, OK? There was some lousy goaltending and lousy play by the lousy visiting team and it got out of hand in a hurry. That said, there were a lot of positives, including the PK early, then the PP, mostly Gaborik getting going…

Hockey
11 Tortorella post-game

John Tortorella: “I don’t think there’s any one best thing. Obviously, Gabby getting untracked in a game here hopefully will help his confidence. Our penalty killing I thought was the biggest point early in the game. It’s something we didn’t want to do — we talked about that before the…

28 Post-game quotes and stuff

First, you’ve heard the news already, probably: Ruslan Fedotenko’s out 2-4 weeks with a second-degree sprain of the a.c. joint in his left shoulder. So not only is Chad Kolarik coming up from Connecticut (AHL), but so is Brodie Dupont. Quotes to follow shortly. —————- Henrik Lundqvist said he was…

Marian Gaborik: On being benched for a stretch of the second and third periods: “Yeah (was surprised). At times, I think last year, once it happened (vs. Atlanta).” “Obviously I haven’t produced much lately (no goals in eight games), obviously in these type of games where it’s a big game.…

First, let me say that the renovation of MSG has really begun now. You’ll see it when you walk in. The foodcourt on the sixth floor directly behind the visitors bench is completely walled off. There’s stuff happening everywhere. Going to be very interesting to watch how they do this…

235 Rangers-Canucks in review

This is some nice little run here by your New York Rangers. OK, they lost to Montreal, and didn’t play their usual grind-it-out game that night. Imagine if they had. Imagine what this would-be five-game winning streak might look like? So now the Rangers have Western pelts of Vancouver, Dallas,…

53 More post-game quotes

John Tortorella: Started by saying that “you guys are really going to give it to me, aren’t you?” for the prediction that the Rangers wouldn’t be able to win 1-0. Then when he was told that the pressbox was praying it would hold up so we could give it to…

Brian Boyle: I asked him what it says about the Rangers to have so many good wins against top teams in the league, or if they even notice: “Yeah, we notice. It says we’re a good team. We’re a good team and we like the challenge. Obviously you want to…

John Tortorella: Update on Boogaard: “Nope. We’re trying to stimulate him, trying to get him moving around, but he still doesn’t feel well. Can he imagine getting him back? “Very difficult. It would be very difficult (both to guess when, or to actually get him back). Both. It’s something we…
