Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Click here to see Alain Vigneault’s post-game press conference. Thoughts: 1) Good thing there are shootouts in this league because that would have been an awful tie. 2) How in the world do the Rangers, against a guy (Curtis McElhinney) who fought…

312 Rangers-Sabres in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers sure didn’t play this way in front of Cam Talbot the last five or six games. On the other hand, they weren’t playing the god-awful Baby Buffaloes in those games. That said, against some lousy teams and some good teams, the Rangers hung out Talbot to…

Click here for my game story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) It’s so cold I saw a politician with his hands in his own pockets. It’s so cold, I was in traffic and some guy flipped me the mitten. 2) Ah, yes, the shootout. You know how I feel about it…

289 Rangers-Avalanche in review

Thoughts: 1) Gonna get this out of the way quickly. These last three games the Rangers played … they got five points, but games like these usually lead to losing streaks. There are usually warning signs before a team goes into a tailspin, just as there are signs when a…

239 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) Some days I try to explain the difference between what happened and what was deserved. Not today. The Rangers got exactly what they deserved — though they may have been pretty lucky to get a point — after an aromatic first 35 minutes of no-show. This team, and…

99 Rangers-Predators in review

Apologies yet again for all the technical glitches. Thoughts: 1) Sometimes the Rangers win and I don’t think they’ve played well at all … fairly often, in fact. Very rarely this season, though, have they lost in games where I thought the performance was quite good. This was one of…

434 Rangers-Bruins in review

Click here to see my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Size? Really? I’m so tired of the old “can’t compete with the big teams” stuff. Sorry. I am. It’s a myth. And I’m not saying the Rangers shouldn’t be looking to add bigger, grittier bottom-six forwards for a playoff run,…
