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…

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…

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 to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Let’s be honest here. The Rangers got way more than they deserved again. I thought the same thing with the Carolina game. Thought the same thing with the Newark game. That’s three of their five wins, in my book. Now,…

Click here for another great lohud photo gallery from another bad game. Thoughts: 1) That three-arena ceremony, with the anthems live by the great Lyndon Slewidge in Ottawa was just fabulous and perfect.  Wow. Goosebumps. Tears. 2) Finally, the Rangers had some forecheck in the first period. Some dump-and-pressure. It…
