317 Rangers-Sharks in review

Thoughts: 1) To put it another way: In their last 14 games, the Rangers have won two fewer than the Giants, Jets and Knicks combined won all season. This streak has gotten ridiculous, not just in pure numbers, but also in where they’re winning, how they’re winning, and how everybody…

Game review
370 Rangers-Kings in review

Thoughts: 1) This is just such a different team now, with its intimidating speed and ability to score goals. Three, four, or more on any given night against any opponent. Down 2-0, most Rangers teams over the last, oh, 21 years or so, were done. Game over. Honest Darryl Sutter…

Happy New Year to all of you! And thanks for making this place the nuttiest, funniest, mostly intelligent and passionate, best hockey site on the internet. Thoughts: 1) I thought the Rangers played much better defensively last night than they did in Dallas. Much better. Yet here’s the thing with…

329 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) Apologies for the problems with the new-look blog. We’re having some obvious growing pains. But most of the night, I think most will agree, it loaded quickly. And it looks good. I know, I know. There are some issues, some bigger than others. We’re aware. And working on…

Game review
483 Rangers-Flames in review

Thoughts: 1) I still don’t think the Rangers are near where they will eventually be. But points are points are points, and they need them, and eight points in four games really moves you up in the standings. I think they were better against Pittsburgh, even though they blew the…

Game review
222 Rangers-Oilers in review

Thoughts: 1) Again, I want to thank the commissioner, the board of governors, Mr. Snider, Mr. Jacobs, and anybody else who forces every team to play two games against all non-conference opponents. So much passion in these games. So physical. So exciting. And those time-zone changes, wowee. Those only add…

271 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) That could have been a disaster. I understand there were some bounces. The tying goal especially. The puck hopped on Marc Staal, just as the earlier puck hopped on Brian Dumoulin on the Rick Nash goal. And Steve Downie’s shot…

Game review
339 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) There’s no way to sugar-coat it. That was a horrible loss on so many levels. A 2-0 lead, in control, some awful defensive coverage, then the absolute gift 5-on-3s and a double-minor mixed in, including one long shift where one of the three Red Wings on ice had…

483 Rangers at Red Wings … It’s Go Time!

Game 25. Rangers at Red Wings. The bad news: You are, apparently on this blog, what your last game says you are, and the Rangers’ last game was that 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay, their third straight loss to the Lightning. The good news: A) They are 5-0-2 in…

260 Rangers-Lightning in review

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) The Rangers were the better team for a large chunk of this game. And I thought they tossed it away. Alain Vigneault said it best, and said it for me: “Unfortunately when you are playing against such a strong opponent,…
