167 Some more reaction to Derek Boogaard’s passing

These player reactions came from the Rangers last night: NEW YORK RANGERS PLAYERS ON THE PASSING OF DEREK BOOGAARD Marian Gaborik: “I found out immediately, like right away…it was late at night here…I couldn’t believe it.  It was weird because I just couldn’t believe it.  It’s really sad, a young…

108 Break-up day: More players

Chris Drury: “I think (the young guys) got a ton of experience, guys that’d never done it before, guys who it was their first year in the league and guys who have played a little bit but not gotten in the playoffs. So I’m sure they all got a lot…

Brandon Dubinsky: “We look at it, it could very easily be 3-1, us, if we find a way to get one in overtime, hang onto the lead, at least 2-2. So, yeah, it’s a tough position, but we’ve got to remain focused and believe in what we’re capable of in…

254 Rangers 3, Capitals 2: Game 3 in review

I just wonder what we’d all be saying today if the Rangers hadn’t gotten two fluky goals. I’m just saying, sometimes we judge a game and how it’s played only by the score. More to the point, I’m not taking anything away from the way the Rangers played yesterday. I…

John Tortorella said he doesn’t anticipate lineup changes in terms of the 18 skaters … but that he’s contemplating his lines and his power-play personnel. If I don’t have time to transcribe his presser I’ll link to video from it. From a room with far, far too many empty lockers…

151 Capitals 2, Rangers 0: Game 2 in review

Two-nothing and two-nothing. Nothing being the important word. Are the Rangers done? No. Not yet. In the playoffs, what happened yesterday doesn’t matter one lick today, and we saw evidence of that in the first period of Game 2, after the Rangers lost in OT in Game 1. They were,…

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

Wow. Pretty good Game 1. I’m sure you weren’t thrilled with the outcome, and sure you weren’t thrilled with the play that decided it. Thoughts: 1) I thought Marc Staal and Dan Girardi had some strong game, with loads of minutes, taking and doling out lots of punishment. Alex Ovechkin…

81 A few more post-practice quotes

Brandon Dubinsky: Said it was nerve-wracking watching Tampa-Carolina, especially when it got to 4-2. “But when it was 3-0, we were pretty excited about that.” On success vs. Washington this season: “Hopefully we can get a little bit of confidence. When you play a team well like we did, hopefully…

246 Chris Drury Live (and alive and in the playoffs)

Conference call with the Rangers’ captain (will update and transcribe and paraphrase … you know the drill). Please excuse the typos.

Henrik Lundqvist: “It’s hard to be disappointed right now, or satisfied. If we’re in, I think it’s a great year. If we’re not, then absolutely you can’t be happy about the year. We’ll see.” “If we’re in, I think everybody feels that this is a pretty good year. We’ve been…

128 Drury in, Zuccarello in; Avery out

Will have Tortorella quotes, however brief, soon. Chris Drury is back in (he’ll add some juice, the coach said). Mats Zuccarello is in, presumably in case of a shootout. That means Sean Avery — who agitates the heck out of the Devils — is prucha’d. Also, Matt Gilroy is in…

Marian Gaborik: “We have to stick together and focus on this one last game. Whatever happened last game, it happened. We don’t want to look back to it. We really just want to focus on this last game. It’s do-or-die, so we’re going to approach it that way and everybody’s…

Will have quotes soon from Prust, Dubinsky, Lundqvist, Drury and Tortorella. You’ve heard by now that Mats Zuccarello is up from Connecticut and Tortorella said that the reality that the game could come down to a shootout is a consideration in having him up. Drury skated, but he and Tortorella…

260 Thrashers-Rangers in review … and then there was one

Looking forward before looking back: Do you know the last time all three metropolitan New York teams missed the playoffs in the same year? How about never? Do you remember 1988? That was the year the Rangers shut out Quebec at the Garden (John Vanbiesbrouck doing the honors) on the…
