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)…

464 It’s Go Time! … Capitals at Rangers

Game 14. Capitals at Rangers. First meeting of the season, the first since Game 7 of that second-round playoff series last spring, which included a triple-OT Rangers win in D.C. Rick Nash, who has an undisclosed injury (banged up) and Chris Kreider, who was recalled from Hartford in case Nash…

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:

777 Rangers assign Kreider to AHL

from the NYR: RANGERS ASSIGN FORWARD CHRIS KREIDER TO CONNECTICUT NEW YORK, February 15, 2013 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has assigned forward Chris Kreider to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL). Kreider, 21, has registered one goal and…

231 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron. Let’s talk about fairness here. Because it isn’t fair if every time this guy plays and the Rangers don’t win, that it’s his fault, or the fault of the decision to play him. He’s not going to go 8-0 or 10-0 or whatever. He’s 1-0-1. Three…

900 It’s Go Time! … Islanders at Rangers

Game 13. Islanders at Rangers. The Rangers open the second quarter of the season on a three-game winning streak, and 6-2 in their last eight. Martin Biron starts in goal, his second start of the season. Brian Boyle returns to the lineup after being scratched for three straight, replacing Chris…

77 So what happens with Brian Boyle, J.T. Miller, etc.?

Because it was such a big part of the discussion during the live chat (you can replay it on the thread below), and since J.T. Miller admitted he struggled in Boston, and since John Tortorella said he’s still undecided about a lineup for tomorrow night’s game against the Islanders (the…

125 Rangers-Bruins in review: Live Chat at noon today

Before we look back at last night’s mayhem, remember we will have a Live Chat right here at noon today. Should be some interesting discussion given what happened and how it happened last night. Be there. Or else. Thoughts: 1) I haven’t had the opportunity to say this in a…

307 Rangers-Lightnings in review

  Thoughts: 1) I don’t get too excited over goals sometimes. Carl Hagelin’s first goal went in off his leg or glove or something. His second goal, if Henrik Lundqvist had allowed one like that, you’d all be saying he stinks. But Hagelin played a wonderfully aggressive game. It was…

491 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) Let’s start with the kid. Or the kids. Please don’t go overboard with this 19-year-old, who isn’t going to score a goal a game, or two a game. But, geez, right off the bat J.T. Miller looks like he belongs, like he has the body and the ability…

397 It’s Go Time!

Game 10. Islanders at Rangers. First meeting of the season in the luke-warm rivalry. (Let’s face it, the Rangers have much bigger rivalries with the Devils, Flyers, Penguins and even Capitals right now). Brian Boyle, one of the “scared or tentative” players coach John Tortorella mentioned after the loss in…

33 John Tortorella pre-game interview

The coach had some pretty good insights tonight on Brian Boyle and some of his other top players, including the goaltender and, without naming names, Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards. He also spoke about replacing the middle of the lineup lost over the off-season. John Tortorella:

83 Post-practice interviews: Tortorella, Callahan, McDonagh

Ryan Callahan skated with contact today, and he’s not ruling out anything yet … but would not say whether he could play tomorrow (he might). Dan Girardi did not skate and there was no update on his condition (“banged up” still being the official prognosis). John Tortorella had some interesting…

198 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) I really wonder who John Tortorella’s tentative, scared guys are. Marian Gaborik? Michael Del Zotto (he doesn’t look tentative to me, but he made some woeful mistakes)? Brad Richards, who was demoted off the No. 1 line and terrible on the power play? Brian Boyle, who except for…

30 Post-practice interviews: Lundqvist, Callahan, Kreider

Ryan Callahan and Chris Kreider wore yellow no-contact jerseys at practice today. Callahan is still a while away from returning, Kreider probably will not play tomorrow at Newark, and he sounded like he didn’t want to say anything until he was/is told he is ready to return. Dan Girardi took…
