315 Rangers-Baby Buffaloes in review

Thoughts: 1) Yeah, so they beat a bad team. That was a popular theme last night. But those are games you need to win, and earlier the Rangers weren’t winning them, so stop whining, take the win, move on. The Rangers played well. Could they have scored more? Yeah. Did…

369 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) A few things jumped out at me. For one, the tempo of this game was pretty high, much higher than the home opener. It’s very obvious that the Rangers are a much faster team with Chris Kreider and J.T. Miller here and then with Carl Hagelin coming back,…

291 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Alain Vigneault’s post-game press conference video is up above. For boxscore, click here. Thoughts: 1) OK, I know I sometimes get annoyed when you guys complain about the officials. But last night, if you didn’t complain about the officials I would suggest getting your pulse checked. I don’t believe that…

285 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) I really would have felt sorry for the Rangers if they had lost this game and had to go home to what is supposed to be a celebration of the renovated arena and all, only to be greeted by an angry home crowd. 2) I also don’t believe,…

482 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) That’s two good-looking hockey clubs. Twelve goals in eight games for ya boys. Doesn’t matter what they do well or not, how they compete or not, who’s in goal and who’s not. Twelve goals in eight games isn’t getting it done. They should be sending Thank Yous to…

337 Rangers-Canucks in review

Click here for my story on Derek Stepan signing a new two-year contract, from The Journal News and lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Huge day for the Rangers Thursday. Not only did they re-sign Derek Stepan — Glen Sather, tough negotiator, wins again — but just as critical is that Ryan Callahan…

355 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Oilers

… or as Ed Norton would say, Erlers. Game 4 of this 15-game trip, and second of four in five nights to end the preseason. Ya boys are 1-2, and have yet to have close to their full lineup in a game, which would be impossible to do with Derek…

339 Rangers-Flames in review

Thoughts: 1) Boy, Slats with that Borsalino was awfully tough on Derek Stepan in the taped interview on MSG. “He’s going to get paid, just not today.” Suggested he was “a fool” for listening to his agent. Classic old-school stuff. And I get it, that it’s playing the CBA and…

Hockey
269 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Flames

Game 3 of this 15-game trip. First of four in five nights out West to close the preseason. Then ya boys come home for a few days of practice before heading to Phoenix. Henrik Lundqvist is scheduled to play the entire game tonight at the Saddledome that changes sponsor names…

224 Big week for a number of youngsters, starting tonight

The Rangers get back to work tonight in Calgary, to start a preseason-closing week in which they play four games in five nights. It’s a crucial week for some of the young players trying to make Alain Vigneault’s team, especially if Derek Stepan remains unsigned on opening night (doubtful). Expected…

406 Chris Kreider hoping for a fresh start

The Rangers left for Alberta on Wednesday, but before they did, veteran reporter Brian Heyman, filling in for Carp, caught up with Chris Kreider at the MSG Training Center. Here’s Brian’s story, which published today in The Journal News and on lohud.com: GREENBURGH Chris Kreider skated up and down the…
