504 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Bleak, bleaker, bleakest? With Winnipeg coming for a critical game Monday, the trade deadline Wednesday and then a home-and-home with Pittsburgh, this could get worse before it gets better. Seriously. 2) That said, I don’t think there’s a move or a player available, or a single need that…

519 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m sure there’s some sentiment today that the Rangers beat a bad, struggling team last night, and that is very true. But, we’ve seen it plenty the last two weeks where the Rangers play a lesser foe and get one point, or none, or get beaten by a…

724 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Not going to rail about the shootout, but with an all intra-conference schedule and a 48-game season, three-point games, and points for losing hockey games, are going to greatly impact the standings. There are piles of three-point games every night. And if you’re not in the party, getting…

For those joining late … Jeff Halpern was claimed off waivers by Montreal, and the Rangers also put Stu Bickel on waivers. Also, J.T. Miller left practice with a left wrist injury he suffered Thursday against Florida, and Arron Asham (back) declared himslf good to go for Sunday’s game against…

1028 Rangers-Panthers in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not talking anybody off ledges today. I’m just not. Because, though I still think the Rangers will make the playoffs, there’s not a lot to like about this team big picture. 2) Last year’s team wouldn’t have many starts like that, and if it did, Brandon Prust…

67 John Tortorella pre-game presser

John Tortorella had some pretty elaborate things to say about Chris Kreider … though I have no doubt that a few of you will purposely misinterpret and twist them. He even cracked a joke on another topic. John Tortorella:

468 It’s Go Time! … Jets at Rangers

Game 18. Jets at Rangers. Ya boys come slip-sliding in, with three straight losses (0-2-1), and four in the last five (1-2-2). They begin a four-game homestand, after which they will have already played 14 of their 24 home games this season. In other words, 17 of their final 27…

Don’t forget today’s noon Live Chat right here. You can check in from the ledge. Thoughts: 1) For a team that’s played just 16 games, there have sure been a a lot of them for which I really don’t have an explanation. 2) I thought it was fitting, though, that…

482 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Even when you’ve been doing this as long as I have, and you’re sitting there writing about what an awful game you’re watching, sometimes you hesitate. I ask myself, is it just because the crowd is dead that it seems awful? Is it just because one team is…

450 Official word on Mashinter recall; Powe out with a concussion

The Rangers placed winger Darroll Powe on injured reserve with a concussion on Monday. Powe was injured in an accidental open-ice collision with Washington’s Matt Hendricks during Sunday’s 2-1 Rangers win at the Garden. Powe flipped over Hendricks and appeared to land on his head. He looked to be unconscious…

224 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Remember last year when the Rangers were almost always the more physical team, the team that won more battles and dictated play, and often the faster team? I thought this was a game that kind of reminded me of last year more than any other this season. 2)…

56 John Tortorella pre-game interview

In case you missed it, Rick Nash will skate in warmups, as will Chris Kreider. Then a decision will be made. Which, to me, says you can eliminate “concussion” from the speculation. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal. John Tortorella:
