272 Game 2: Rangers-Bruins in review

Gotta tell you, I didn’t think the Rangers could do the 0-2 trick against Washington, so I’m not saying “no way,” but I really don’t get the feeling that this Boston team is going to lose four of five. I think these Bruins are better than Washington, play a style…

353 Game 1: Rangers-Bruins in review

Game 1 wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I expected it to be a little meaner, and I though the Bruins would have more surges, and I expected the Rangers to play more along the walls. Actually, I thought, the Rangers moved the puck pretty freely, didn’t forecheck…

78 Rangers-Bruins position-by-position matchups

From the Journal News and LoHud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – The Rangers and Bruins won’t need mirrors this week. They can just look at each other while they’re grinding out games in their first playoff series in 40 years. Here’s a look at the matchups: FORWARDS: The Bruins have…

584 Game 7: Rangers-Capitals in review

You guys who’ve been around since the GAG Line, or earlier, must be feeling pretty cool today, looking at the first Rangers-Bruins playoff series in 40 years. I know I do. I will say this, too, and I kinda touched on it when we were discussing good and bad matchups.…

303 Game 5: Rangers-Capitals in review

So I was going to try to write something witty to get youse off the ledges, or something about how this is not really over. Well, maybe I should go that way, because what this series has shown us, and pretty much all the other series have shown us, and…

285 Game 4: Rangers-Capitals in review

I kept watching all the other playoff series going on and wondered why they all seemed so much more intense than these Rangers-Capitals games, why there was so much more nasty in those games, so much more tempo and hitting. Until Game 4. Welcome to the playoffs, Rangers and Capitals…

10 Rangers helped by new depth on defense

Hope to have an video up shortly, shot by Josh Thomson, 26. Meanwhile, here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today, on the Rangers’ new depth on defense: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH — There were some things obviously different about the Rangers in Game 3 of their series…

389 Game 1: Rangers-Capitals in review

Down 1-0 in a series isn’t the end of the world ever, at all. I fully expect this series to be 1-1 after two, 2-2 after four, only because most series are that way, and you know what we saw last night? We saw that these teams are pretty even.…

226 Rangers-Capitals getting closer … sort of …

I’m headed over to this mini-training camp the Rangers are forced to endure because the NHL scheduled their four days off between games. Will have audio interviews (fingers crossed, new audio system which works on your phone), possibly some video, definitely some reports (Twitter: @RangersReport). Later today I will put…

373 The clincher: Rangers-Hurricanes in review

See? I told all y’all that the Rangers would make the playoffs. (I won’t say how much doubt I’ve had these last three nights, though). And I must add that the last two games the Rangers – as always whenever they have struggled over the years – looked like a…

427 Rangers-Panthers in review

What an opportunity the Rangers let get away in Sunrise, Fla. Beat the worst team in hockey, whether in regulation, overtime or the tiddly-winks contest, and the Rangers would have clinched a playoff spot and jumped over the Islanders into the sixth seed. They should thank their lucky stars that…

435 Rangers-Devils in review

My math … you know by now to get your own calculators out to learn the truth when I start tossing numbers around. But this is how I see it. If Winnipeg loses once in regulation in its final three (at Buffalo tonight, at Washington tomorrow, home against Montreal Thursday)…
