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,…

Thoughts: 1) Happy Thanksgiving. There’s plenty for which to be thankful and far more important than a stupid hockey game. So I hope you enjoy the holiday with family. Please be careful on the roads and don’t even dream about drinking and driving, or using the phone while driving. And…

235 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here for a photo gallery from last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) I sure wish this could be all about the first 65 minutes of that hockey game. But it can’t because of the bizarro ending, which was nobody’s fault, but very unfortunate. Fact is, the correct call was made…

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…
