180 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) A+B doesn’t always =C.  The Bruins are far bigger, stronger and tougher than the Rangers. They pushed the Rangers around, in a punishing sense and in terms of battling around the net. I don’t necessarily think that is why the Rangers were completely outplayed again, for a second…

Game 41. Rangers at Bruins. The Rangers finish the first half of their season tonight in Boston. They, of course, come off that end-of-the-world loss to the Islanders on Tuesday, and carry that one-game losing streak into the start of a stretch of three road games in less than…

Click here to see my story on lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Honestly. Honestly, did anybody not see this coming? Did anybody not at least think there was a good chance the Islanders would come into the Garden and outskate, outwork the Rangers? I mean, how many times did that happen when…

370 Rangers-Kings in review

Thoughts: 1) This is just such a different team now, with its intimidating speed and ability to score goals. Three, four, or more on any given night against any opponent. Down 2-0, most Rangers teams over the last, oh, 21 years or so, were done. Game over. Honest Darryl Sutter…

262 Rangers-Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, that was a fun game to watch. Strong, physical game with some great pace at times. Anaheim is about four miles better than Buffalo. But the Rangers won this game, were the better team most of the night. Nothing flukey about it. They’re for real. Not yet…

Game 28. Rangers at Oilers. The NHL’s latest scourge, the mumps, which claimed glamor boy Sidney Crosby this morning, has taken one of the Rangers’ hottest players out of action the rest of this Western Canada swing. Derick Brassard was sent back to NYC today with a suspected case…

151 Rangers-Canucks in review

Thoughts: 1) A former Vancouver and Rangers coach, Roger Neilson, always said, it’s not who you play as much as when you play them. It was a gift getting a team returning from a seven-game trip. That said, full marks to the Rangers — who’ve been off since October –…

339 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) There’s no way to sugar-coat it. That was a horrible loss on so many levels. A 2-0 lead, in control, some awful defensive coverage, then the absolute gift 5-on-3s and a double-minor mixed in, including one long shift where one of the three Red Wings on ice had…

Game 25. Rangers at Red Wings. The bad news: You are, apparently on this blog, what your last game says you are, and the Rangers’ last game was that 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay, their third straight loss to the Lightning. The good news: A) They are 5-0-2 in…
