536 Rangers at Senators … It’s Go Time!

Game 70. Rangers at Senators. Ya boys have lost three of four, one of those in embarrassing fashion, and now hit the critical stage of the schedule, a point out of second place in the Lesstropolitan Division, with a top-three finish, rather than a wild card, extremely important. The…

471 Sharks at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 69. Sharks at Rangers. Jumbo Soft Shell Shrimp Joe Thornton and his Sharknado gang have won five in a row and are 44-17-7 for 95 points, second in the West. Of course you probably remember Tomas (Hollerin’) Hertl dancing for four goals against ya boys in that 9-2 win…

Hockey
446 Rangers at Jets … It’s Go Time!

Game 68. Rangers at Jets. Ya boys come off back-to-back losses to start the road trip, their first consecutive road losses since that nine-game season-opening trip. Henrik Lundqvist is back in goal, seeking to tie Mike Richter’s franchise record 301 career wins, and pass Eddie Giacomin’s franchise record 49…

Hockey
431 Rangers at Wilds … It’s Go Time!

Game 67. Rangers at Wilds. The Rangers come off a shameful non-effort in Carolina Tuesday, a game their top six forwards, among others, mailed in. Cam Talbot starts in goal, his first since he beat Chicago at MSG in the first game after the Olympic break. Talbot is 11-5, 1.75.…

140 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) Holy shishkebob. I’ve been watching NHL games for a long time, and I’ve watched a lot of bad games by bad teams and good teams and I’ve learned this: A classic indication of a team taking a team lightly, of showing an opponent zero respect, is playing Harlem…

485 Rangers at Hurricanes again … It’s Go Time!

Game 66. Rangers at Hurricanes. Henrik Lundqvist is one win short of tying Mike Richter’s franchise record of 301, and is tied with Eddie Giacomin for the team record of 49 career shutouts. He starts in goal again tonight, coming off a win in Raleigh Friday and a shutout…

Hockey
269 Red Wings at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 65. Red Wings at Rangers. Just 17 games left for ya boys, who snapped a three-game losing streak in Raleigh on Friday and return to the scene Tuesday to start a stretch of three in a row, six of seven and 10 of 13 on the road. Alain Vigneault…

Hockey
464 Rangers at Hurricanes … It’s Go Time!

Game 64. Rangers at Hurricanes. Well, this should be interesting. Martin St. Louis and Mats Zuccarello in the same lineup. They should give them both the same number and really screw up Carolina in Game 2 of the post-Ryan Callahan era. Zuccarello returns tonight from a broken hand suffered…

Hockey
675 Maple Leaves at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 63. Maple Leaves at Rangers. Martin St. Louis makes his Rangers debut, wearing Dave Maloney’s old No. 26, while the ya boys play the first game of the post-Ryan Callahan era. Say what you will about the trade and the negotiations with Callahan, and there certainly was a…

Hockey
643 Bruins at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 62. Bruins at Rangers. The trade deadline is now less than three days away, and Ryan Callahan is still a Ranger. But will this be his final game in a Blueshirt? You keep hearing that Glen Sather might be willing to go six years and slightly above $6M…

Game review
177 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) With the trade deadline now just three-plus days away, this is more important than the result of that awful game at the Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes. With Dan Girardi signed and sealed, Ryan Callahan and his agent insist that signing has nothing to do with…

Hockey
794 Rangers at Flyers … It’s Go Time!

Game 61. Rangers at Flyers. Light up the Empire State Building in orange and black! It’s the Rangers vs. Mr. Snider’s team at the Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes. First things first. With Dan Girardi now signed long-term, Alain Vigneault said this morning that he is confident…

Game review
274 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

Thoughts: 1) First and foremost: My odds on being Rangers after 3 p.m. Wednesday: Martin St. Louis 60-40, Ryan Callahan 25-75, Dan Girardi 80-20, Ryan Kesler 40-60, Zenon Konopka 0-100, Marian Gaborik 10-90. Some other significant player(s) who hasn’t/haven’t been prominently mentioned 65-35. I still think captains Callahan and St.…

Hockey
385 Blackhawks at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 60. Blackhawks at Rangers. Finally! Ya boys return from the Olympic break with a rugged three games in four nights. They go to Philadelphia for an afternoon game Saturday, then host Boston Sunday. Keep in mind that every game now could be Ryan Callahan’s last game in a…

344 Guest blogger: afrey94 … Rangers report card

Rangers Report Card By afrey94 With the Olympics behind us and only about 25 percent of the season left before the start of the NHL playoffs, this seems as good a time as any to look back on the season so far.  Instead of simply gauging grades based on statistics…

Game review
89 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) The whole Ryan Callahan situation threw a cloud over the game, IMO. And will continue to hover over whatever the Rangers do from now until the March 5 trade deadline, or perhaps the Olympic-break roster freeze Feb. 7. If they think they won’t be able to re-sign Callahan,…

Game review
542 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, that was a pretty good start. Maybe the Flyers were thrown off by that rouse-’em-up battle song, “Oh you look so beautiful tonight” they play when the teams enter the rink. 2) Seriously, I want to get to the Daniel Carcillo topic and all in a minute,…

353 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Maple Leaves

Game 43. Rangers at Maple Leaves. The Rangers  close a five-game trip with a make-or-break-trip game. They are 2-2 so far, allowing 12 goals in the four games, and were thoroughly thrashed in Pittsburgh last night. Overall the Rangers have won four of six, including a 2-1 shootout win…
