1059 Game 2: Rangers at Canadiens … It’s Go Time!

Game 2. Rangers at Canadiens. Big news out of Montreal today, where the Canadiens are saying goalie Carey Price is out for the series with that apparent knee injury he suffered in Game 1, when Chris Kreider slid into him. And of course there’s the usual idiocy and homerism…

227 Game 1: Rangers-Canadiens in review

If you haven’t seen it, check out the photo gallery one post down. Let me know what you think. Thoughts: 1) Ghosts, ghouls, goblins? Get outta here. Gone, gone, gone. That can no longer be a factor in this series. Now it’s just hockey. Now Henrik Lundqvist is Henrik Lundqvist.…

290 Game 6: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Gotta admit, going against my much ballyhooed belief that there is no carryover from game to game in a playoff series (there isn’t), I thought the Rangers were done like dinner after Game 4. I mean, they just stunk it up in a huge game. And, boy, has…

278 Game 5: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) The only way it would have been better for the Rangers would have been if big-hearted, broken-hearted Martin St. Louis had scored. But what a day. What an emotional day. And night. It’s not over for St. Louis, either. He’s got to be mentally fried, headed back to…

506 Game 4: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Haven’t said this much this year, but I don’t even know where to begin. It was going to take a monumental effort to beat Pittsburgh, a much better team, in this series. The way the Rangers played in Game 4, they wouldn’t have beaten anybody. I thought a…

Game 2. Rangers at Penguins. Ya boys play the fifth of what will have been an absurd six games in nine nights after tomorrow’s Game 3 in New York. The Rangers look to snap all their negative strings tonight: As you are well aware, the Rangers have failed, nine…

976 Game 1: Rangers at Penguins … It’s Go Time!

Game 1. Rangers at Penguins. Boy, I sure took a lot of shots for having the audacity to pick the Penguins, who finished 13 points ahead of the Rangers. Holy shishkebob! So I’m sure all of those who complained about my negativity aren’t going to creep out to the…

854 Game 5: Flyers at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 5. Flyers at Rangers. Not to be a bummer, but it’s possible today will be the final home game of the season. When a best-of-seven series is tied 2-2, the winner of Game 5 has gone on to advance 180 out of 227 times (79.3%) in Stanley Cup…

Game 3. Rangers at Flyers. The Rangers were 0-2 during the season at the Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes. One of the losses came during the 2-6 start of that nine-game road trip. Since then, the Rangers were 22-8-3 on the road, and tied for the Eastern…

Game 2. Flyers at Rangers. Happy Easter! In the words of the Amazing Kreskin, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest NBC’s armpits for scheduling a noon game on such a holy day. Cretins. So the other night, after Game 1, around 1 a.m., I’m leaving MSG and look…

345 Rangers-Flyers matchups: position by position

Here are my first-round position-by-position matchups: FORWARDS: Let’s face it. Up front, the Flyers are going to be able to thump the Rangers, who don’t possess the physical element the Flyers, or most teams, have. The Rangers rely on speed and pressure. And, if the Rangers’ top guys don’t play…

Here’s the unedited version of a column I wrote for The Journal News and Lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – Alain Vigneault held his forefinger and his thumb less than inch apart when he was talking Tuesday about the difference between the Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers. The Rangers coach,…

185 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Happy anniversary! It’s now officially 74 years with one Stanley Cup since the Rangers won it on April 13, 1940. 2) So it’s Rangers-Flyers like the good old days. So light up the Empire State Building in orange and black in honor of Mr. Snider. Sure has been…
