272 Game 2: Rangers-Bruins in review

Gotta tell you, I didn’t think the Rangers could do the 0-2 trick against Washington, so I’m not saying “no way,” but I really don’t get the feeling that this Boston team is going to lose four of five. I think these Bruins are better than Washington, play a style…

353 Game 1: Rangers-Bruins in review

Game 1 wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I expected it to be a little meaner, and I though the Bruins would have more surges, and I expected the Rangers to play more along the walls. Actually, I thought, the Rangers moved the puck pretty freely, didn’t forecheck…

78 Rangers-Bruins position-by-position matchups

From the Journal News and LoHud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – The Rangers and Bruins won’t need mirrors this week. They can just look at each other while they’re grinding out games in their first playoff series in 40 years. Here’s a look at the matchups: FORWARDS: The Bruins have…

303 Game 5: Rangers-Capitals in review

So I was going to try to write something witty to get youse off the ledges, or something about how this is not really over. Well, maybe I should go that way, because what this series has shown us, and pretty much all the other series have shown us, and…

285 Game 4: Rangers-Capitals in review

I kept watching all the other playoff series going on and wondered why they all seemed so much more intense than these Rangers-Capitals games, why there was so much more nasty in those games, so much more tempo and hitting. Until Game 4. Welcome to the playoffs, Rangers and Capitals…

941 It’s Go Time! … Game 3: Capitals at Rangers

A little history lesson, which means not much: The Rangers have been down 0-2 in a best-of-seven series 19 times (and 0-2 in a best-of-five once) and have only come back to win one of those series, in 1996 vs. Montreal. In those 20 instances, the Rangers were swept eight…

341 Finish or be finished for the Rangers

The quick update: Ryane Clowe (probable concussion) and Marc Staal (eye) were both on the ice for an optional morning skate. Not sure if either will play in Game 3 tonight, but I imagine both want to. Carl Hagelin, who went leg-on-leg with Alex Ovechkin early in Game 2 and…

447 John Tortorella post-practice interview (audio)

The news, in case you still don’t follow me on twitter, is that Ryane Clowe took part in a full practice but doesn’t know if he’ll play Game 3. The only Ranger who didn’t skate was Carl Hagelin, who went leg-on-leg with Alex Ovechkin in Game 2, but played the…

317 Game 2: Capitals 1, Rangers 0 (OT) in review

Happy Cinco De Mayo. Well, your boys are sure in a hole now, and even if it’s one out of which it would be possible to dig, it seems miles deeper because of their inability to cobble together even one legitimate goal in two-plus games in this series, against a…

Hockey
389 Game 1: Rangers-Capitals in review

Down 1-0 in a series isn’t the end of the world ever, at all. I fully expect this series to be 1-1 after two, 2-2 after four, only because most series are that way, and you know what we saw last night? We saw that these teams are pretty even.…

169 Richards & Nash: Different playoff histories, same goals

Headed to practice today and will have audio and reports (Twitter: @RangersReport) from there. Meanwhile, here’s the story I wrote for The Journal News and LoHud.com about Rick Nash and Brad Richards looking forward to the post-season for different reasons, with completely different playoff histories. By Rick Carpiniello NEW YORK…

373 The clincher: Rangers-Hurricanes in review

See? I told all y’all that the Rangers would make the playoffs. (I won’t say how much doubt I’ve had these last three nights, though). And I must add that the last two games the Rangers – as always whenever they have struggled over the years – looked like a…

427 Rangers-Panthers in review

What an opportunity the Rangers let get away in Sunrise, Fla. Beat the worst team in hockey, whether in regulation, overtime or the tiddly-winks contest, and the Rangers would have clinched a playoff spot and jumped over the Islanders into the sixth seed. They should thank their lucky stars that…

435 Rangers-Devils in review

My math … you know by now to get your own calculators out to learn the truth when I start tossing numbers around. But this is how I see it. If Winnipeg loses once in regulation in its final three (at Buffalo tonight, at Washington tomorrow, home against Montreal Thursday)…

571 Rangers-Sabres in review

Two very important games against two inferior teams in two nights, and the Rangers get two critical victories. Hey, you don’t dissect these at this point. Put the four points in the bag and move on. Four games left. Thoughts: 1) I wonder if any of you are taking a…
