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)…

280 Rangers-Islanders in review

Still not completely sure what to make of the Rangers’ 1-0 win over the Islanders Saturday night. The Rangers didn’t play great. They didn’t play lousy. But it sure as heck was fun to watch, and the atmosphere in that old, dilapidated building was pretty cool and very loud. Thoughts:…

9 Rangers 1, Islanders 0 (OT): post-game notes

With the win the Rangers closed to within a point of the seventh-place Islanders, who picked up a point by getting to overtime. The Islanders have 47, one behind sixth-place Ottawa, the Rangers 46, two ahead of ninth-place Winnipeg with a game in hand. The Islanders, who hold a tiebreaker…

411 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

I’m not going to go nutso about the shootout today, because I’ve done it to death … and will do it again later on, no doubt, about how stupid it is that the playoff fate of teams, not to mention the jobs of GMs, coaches and players are decided in…

392 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Well, you guys really don’t need me to break down that 4-3 loss in T.O. because it was pretty self-explanatory. Breakdowns, breakdowns, breakdowns. Big, glaring, smelly defensive breakdowns. One on each of the four Toronto goals. Thoughts: 1) Woe Canada. Your boys have not won in Canada this season. How…

477 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Funny how perception works. The Rangers romped over Pittsburgh 6-1 Wednesday. Then they lost in a post-game tiddly-winks contest, 2-1, in Pittsburgh on Friday. Then they beat Carolina 4-1 last night. And yet I would argue that the best game that they played was the loss. Honestly, I think it…

261 Rangers-Penguins in review

OK, show of hands, how many thought the Rangers would get three points out of this home-and-home series against the prematurely-crowned Stanley Cup champions? Two points? None? Seriously, if I had told you on Wednesday afternoon when everybody was nuts over the Marian Gaborik trade that they’d get three points,…
