208 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Apologies for the technical difficulties last night. No idea why the Go Time! post disappeared. Will try to figure it out. Don’t forget Sunday’s game is a 12:30 NBCer, and we move the clocks on Saturday. So it’s a really early game. First and foremost, a special great job! and…

422 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

First, click here for my story from the game last night, after which Martin St. Louis was pretty forthcoming about demainding a trade. Second, click here for my story from before the game, about the deadline-day’s events, with reaction from Glen Sather, Ryan Callahan, Alain Vigneault, Steve Yzerman, etc. Thoughts:…

686 Rangers-Bruins in review; Live Chat Tuesday

Thoughts: 1) Ryan Callahan’s last game as a Ranger? Was it? Was this the way for the guy to go out, off two God-awful losses? I suppose there remains a chance that Glen Sather doesn’t trade him by Wednesday. Two chances actually. One, Callahan gets off his seventh-year demand and…

177 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) With the trade deadline now just three-plus days away, this is more important than the result of that awful game at the Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes. With Dan Girardi signed and sealed, Ryan Callahan and his agent insist that signing has nothing to do with…

344 Guest blogger: afrey94 … Rangers report card

Rangers Report Card By afrey94 With the Olympics behind us and only about 25 percent of the season left before the start of the NHL playoffs, this seems as good a time as any to look back on the season so far.  Instead of simply gauging grades based on statistics…

318 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Hypothetical question? If you had your choice of beating Edmonton and losing in Pittsburgh or losing to Edmonton and winning in Pittsburgh, wouldn’t you have preferred this? Really too bad they tossed away that game vs. the Oilers, could/should have been six in a row going into the…

Game review
159 Rangers-Oilers in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers weren’t God-awful, just awful enough to lose. They sure have played worse games than this one, but this was their worst in the last six, since that Islanders game at the Garden before the Stadium Series and the competitive loss to St. Louis. And that was…

Game review
561 Rangers-Avalanches in review

Thoughts: 1) Ryan Callahan. He’s first not because he scored two goals and had an assist, seven hits, six shots on goal, and a blocked shot, or because he was the first star or because they were chanting his name at the Garden. He’s first because he’s overshadowing everything the…

Game review
89 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) The whole Ryan Callahan situation threw a cloud over the game, IMO. And will continue to hover over whatever the Rangers do from now until the March 5 trade deadline, or perhaps the Olympic-break roster freeze Feb. 7. If they think they won’t be able to re-sign Callahan,…

519 Rangers-Islanders in review

(Apologies … tech problems overnight prevented me from including photos in the review. Dammit). Thoughts: 1) I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but the trading deadline is closing in, with the two and a half weeks roster freeze over the Olympic break, and the Rangers…

340 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) I want to start out by saying that this was my first live experience with one of these outdoor games. I didn’t think I was going to like it. I generally don’t care for the hype, and I absolutely don’t care for all the ancillary stuff with entertainment…

Game review
339 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) The Blues obviously got the memo from Coach Ken Hitchcock, or maybe they figured it out themselves. They were embarrassed by the Devils two nights earlier, and as we all knew, they would be a lot better at the Garden. Much, much, much tighter. Nothing that we didn’t…

Game review
303 Rangers-Islanders in review (updated)

Thoughts: 1) It really is remarkable how much more the Devils and Islanders have seemed to want the games against the Rangers than the Rangers have. Part of it is that the Rangers don’t treat them as top rivals anymore. They don’t. The Islanders certainly do. You can only imagine…

Game review
281 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) Derek Stepan. Breakout game? I don’t know. He had that hat trick Nov. 2 after going his first 12 without a goal, then scored four in his next 36 games, including none in the last 13. And while I certainly don’t judge him solely on goals, he needs…

Game review
426 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) Ben Bishop. Holy shishkebob, does this guy own the Rangers? He allowed one goal and his goals against average went up and save percentage went down. He came in at 0.89 with a .970 save percentage in four starts. He’s now 5-0 with two shutouts against the Rangers.…

Game review
542 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, that was a pretty good start. Maybe the Flyers were thrown off by that rouse-‘em-up battle song, “Oh you look so beautiful tonight” they play when the teams enter the rink. 2) Seriously, I want to get to the Daniel Carcillo topic and all in a minute,…
