The Powe interview has to do with his being part of the 2010 Philly team that came back from 0-3 against Boston to win that playoff series.
Must win? Not yet. But you probably don’t want to play with those matches again, right. The Rangers came back from 0-2 for the second time in team history against Washington, so you really shouldn’t figure that can happen again, right? I don’t think the Rangers are dead at 0-2,... Read More →
So, last “It’s Go Time!” of the season? Or just the second of three games in four nights? The winner tonight takes on the Boston-Toronto Game 7 winner, probably starting Wednesday. It would be on the road if it’s the Rangers, right here in D.C. if it’s the Capitals. By… Read More →
The NHL again treated its fans like garbage and waited until today to announce the starting times for Sunday, and even though it’s Mother’s Day, the league is still holding you up until tonight if you want to make plans for that day. So this is the best the NHL… Read More →
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… Read More →
Another crucial game. More crucial, actually. What the Rangers accomplished in Game 3, with a 4-3 victory, was to provide themselves a chance to make this a series. Now they need to follow up with another win or, obviously, they fall behind three games to one. Though that type of… Read More →
The news is that Rick Nash was given a day off for maintenance, and that Darroll Powe (probable concussion suffered in Game 3) did not practice. Ryane Clowe (probable concussion) took part in contact drills, but is still unsure if he can play in Game 4 Wednesday.
First, apologies for all the tech difficulties lately. I have no idea what’s going on. We had some dead audio, and this blog post without photos, and no photo gallery. I will let you know later if we’re doing a Live Chat today. Onto Game 3 … So is it… Read More →
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)... Read More →
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:... Read More →

Game 36. Jets at Rangers. Winnipeg makes the trip up from the Southeast for this big game, the Jets having as much trouble as your New York Rangers. Winnipeg is 2-4 in its last six, with a total of two goals scored in the four losses (sound familiar?). Ya… Read More →
Game 34. Rangers at Canadiens. Ya boys have lost three of their last four (one of those in some random non-hockey related contest held after the game ended in a tie) and six of their last nine. They have scored five goals in those six losses, and 15 goals in… Read More →
Game 33. Rangers at Senators. Ya boys on a one-game winning streak and NHL-undefeated in two, technically 3-1-1 in five. They play the second of a three-game road trip tonight at the arena that changes names every five seconds, in Kanata, Ont. Mats Zuccarello’s signing was made official today, but… Read More →
Game 32. Rangers at Flyers. Light up the Empire State Building in Orange and Black! The Rangers have lost two in a row, albeit one of those in a random non-hockey-related contest after the hockey game ended in a tie. They are 2-1-1 in their last four, which means five… Read More →
Thoughts: 1) Most of the time, you can analyze a game and say this team deserved to win, or this team deserved to lose. Last night was one of those games that, seriously, could have gone either way, no problem. The only thing that would concern me a little bit,... Read More →
Thoughts: 1) That’s at least five OT goals by Gaborik the last two seasons—including the triple-OT winner—and three of those on the 4-on-3 PP. He has eight goals, same as Rick Nash. He has four game-winners this season, FWIW. I know some of you don’t want to hear it—because if… Read More →
Thoughts: 1) I concur with most of the players in the lockerroom. I didn’t think this was a bad game. I thought, in fact, it was their best game in this six-game (1-3-2) streak, especially given the injuries and the fragile state of mind coming off those previous games. Not… Read More →
Game 18. Jets at Rangers. Ya boys come slip-sliding in, with three straight losses (0-2-1), and four in the last five (1-2-2). They begin a four-game homestand, after which they will have already played 14 of their 24 home games this season. In other words, 17 of their final 27… Read More →
