181 Despite winning 15 of 18, Rangers have room to improve

First, thanks to the many who volunteered to do the mid-season report card. One of our main regulars will be handling the assignment. My story from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – Have you taken a look at the NHL’s Eastern Conference standings lately? It’s crazy. Even with a little…

416 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) I forgot already the word Alain Vigneault used about the way the Rangers handled the third-period lead. I think he said “choppy” or something like that. Whatever it was, I agree. I thought the entire game last night was choppy. Far from perfect. And against a lesser opponent…

180 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) A+B doesn’t always =C.  The Bruins are far bigger, stronger and tougher than the Rangers. They pushed the Rangers around, in a punishing sense and in terms of battling around the net. I don’t necessarily think that is why the Rangers were completely outplayed again, for a second…

390 Rangers at Bruins … It’s Go Time!

Game 41. Rangers at Bruins. The Rangers finish the first half of their season tonight in Boston. They, of course, come off that end-of-the-world loss to the Islanders on Tuesday, and carry that one-game losing streak into the start of a stretch of three road games in less than…

Click here to see my story on lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Honestly. Honestly, did anybody not see this coming? Did anybody not at least think there was a good chance the Islanders would come into the Garden and outskate, outwork the Rangers? I mean, how many times did that happen when…

317 Rangers-Sharks in review

Thoughts: 1) To put it another way: In their last 14 games, the Rangers have won two fewer than the Giants, Jets and Knicks combined won all season. This streak has gotten ridiculous, not just in pure numbers, but also in where they’re winning, how they’re winning, and how everybody…

370 Rangers-Kings in review

Thoughts: 1) This is just such a different team now, with its intimidating speed and ability to score goals. Three, four, or more on any given night against any opponent. Down 2-0, most Rangers teams over the last, oh, 21 years or so, were done. Game over. Honest Darryl Sutter…

262 Rangers-Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, that was a fun game to watch. Strong, physical game with some great pace at times. Anaheim is about four miles better than Buffalo. But the Rangers won this game, were the better team most of the night. Nothing flukey about it. They’re for real. Not yet…

225 Rangers-Sabres in review

Click here to see my game story on lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This isn’t my original thought. It was borrowed. The Harlem Globetrotters played at MSG Saturday afternoon. I’m guessing they still play the Washington Generals. I’m guessing the Globetrotters left their playbook in the Rangers lockerroom, and the Generals left…
