Click here to see lohud.com’s photo gallery from Saturday’s 3-0 Rangers win in Philadelphia. Thoughts: 1) This is a really good team you’re watching here, folks. A really good team that has played a bunch of bad games. Just trying to figure it out. That was the first time Alain…

185 Rangers-Lightning in review

Thoughts: 1) Happy Thanksgiving. There’s plenty for which to be thankful and far more important than a stupid hockey game. So I hope you enjoy the holiday with family. Please be careful on the roads and don’t even dream about drinking and driving, or using the phone while driving. And…

295 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Click here to read my story from the Rangers’ 5-0 win over Montreal. Click here for lohud.com’s photo gallery from last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) It all starts with their defensive commitment for the Rangers. If they defend, if they manage the puck, then their speed shows up. If they…

Click here to read my story on last night’s game, from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) So Alain Vigneault walks into the interview room, cracks a smile and says, “That was a little better, eh?” Sure was. But we’ve seen this act before. Here’s a little bit of a difference. This time…

Game review
336 Rangers-Lightning in review

Click here to read my story (with some very good quotes) from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This one was the worst. There’s no sugar-coating it. I’d say 15 or 16 of the Rangers’ skaters in last night’s game were going three-quarters speed, or as I like to call it, scrimmage speed.…

Game review
235 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here for a photo gallery from last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) I sure wish this could be all about the first 65 minutes of that hockey game. But it can’t because of the bizarro ending, which was nobody’s fault, but very unfortunate. Fact is, the correct call was made…

156 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here to read my story on the Rangers’ 5-0 win over Pittsburgh Tuesday. Thoughts: 1) I predicted a blowout. 2) Whatever it is, the Rangers sure as heck distract the living hell out of the Penguins. Part of that is the goalkeeper, for sure. But the Rangers become a…

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Click here to see lohud.com’s photo gallery from last night’s game, via Getty Images. Thoughts: 1) This weekend was right out of the John Muckler era. 2) Speaking of Muck, I wonder what it would be like around here if Alain Vigneault…

162 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Reminder: Tonight’s Oilers-Rangers game at MSG is an unusual 6 p.m. start. Thoughts: 1) Toronto’s really not very good at all. Actually, it’s hard to believe that the way the Leaves play is the actually the way they strive to play. If you take care of your end, and don’t…

555 Rangers at Maple Leaves … It’s Go Time!

Game 13. Rangers at Maple Leaves. Ya boys look to avenge a loss to the Leaves in their home opener, a hideous affair, if you recall, which touched off an unsightly three-game losing streak. They are 5-1-2 in their last eight however. After tonight they return home for the…

Click here for my story on last night’s Rangers-Blues game, from lohud.com. Click here to see lohud.com’s photo gallery of last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) I’m not going to get into whether the shootout is a stupid, stupid way to decide a hockey game — especially a really good hockey…
