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.…

507 Penguins at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 15. Penguins at Rangers. Pens not only hot (seven straight wins), but probably bothered by their ejection from the playoffs by the Rangers, after holding a 3-1 lead in games, last spring. They will likely be after Marc Staal, of course, because he committed the crime of the…

Hockey
582 Oilers at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 14. Oilers at Rangers. The Rangers come off a hideous loss in Toronto Saturday, a game in which they got swept up into playing the Leaves’ game of chances, executing terribly, playing poorly defensively. Just a lousy game that ended with a giveaway and a 4-on-1 game-winning goal…

Game review
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…

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…

694 Blues at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 11. Blues at Black and Blues. As if the Rangers needed another injury … Mats Zuccarello, who was clipped twice in Saturday’s shootout loss to Winnipeg and was limping around the practice facility yesterday, is questionable for tonight’s game. He will be a game-time decision … if he…

118 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

Thoughts: 1) Is it possible that this team will be faster overall than last year? Yessiree. Speed kills, and when  you replace Brian Boyle with (take your pick), replace Brad Richards with J.T. Miller, have a full season of Martin St. Louis’ wheels plus Chris Kreider from the start, maybe…

5 Roster competition in camp, but for not many spots

Here’s my story from The Journal News and lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello NEW YORK – You do the math and you realize that, as much as coach Alain Vigneault and the Rangers organization want some young players to make the roster, there won’t be a lot of room. So there…
