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

[polldaddy poll=7690535 align=”left”] 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…

376 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) This is not an excuse. Just a fact. The Pittsburgh Penguins are helmets and shoulder pads better than the rest of the East. They played almost the entire month of December with their JV on the ice and ran away and hid. They could play the entire second…

279 Rangers-Panthers in review … Happy New Year!

Thoughts: 1) Happy New Year! Whether 2013 was good, great, bad or horrible for you, here’s hoping that 2014 will be better. And the dawn of 2014 means one thing: Honeymooners Marathon!! It also means Winter Classic today at the Big House, and after the game, the naming of the…

264 Rangers-Wilds in review

Happy Festivus! We will begin with the airing of grievances, followed by the feats of strength. Thoughts: 1) That was one of the Rangers’ best games of the season, and the second was one of the best periods of the season, and the third wasn’t too far behind. Why? Because…

Hockey
378 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) The homestand to hell. At some point, if not soon then later, the Rangers will rue the points they hacked up on this nine-gamer, whether it be the points that make them fight for their lives the final days of the season or the points that keep them…

Hockey
314 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) As you know, I completely agree with what Brad Richards said post-game. That you don’t judge how a team played in a hockey game based on the coin-flip that is the skills competition. Because, as you know, I always maintain that it’s not part of the hockey game,…

634 It’s Go Time! … Blue Jackets at Rangers

[polldaddy poll=7641207 align=”left”] Game 33. Blue Jackets at Rangers. The reunion of the former Rangers and former Blue Jackets is the story line, but tonight’s game is really about the Rangers’ need for a victory, and having to get it with a depleted lineup. Big, tough 2010 first-round draft…

Hockey
561 It’s Go Time! … Capitals at Rangers

[polldaddy poll=7628474 align=”left”] Game 31. Capitals at Rangers. The Rangers play the second of a franchise-record nine-game homestand.

498 It’s Go Time! … Devils at Rangers

[polldaddy poll=7626658 align=”left”] Game 30. Devils at Rangers. The Rangers begin a franchise-record nine-game homestand with back-to-backs against the Devils and Washington. They will play just 23 of their final 52 games on the road, two of those at Yankee Stadium. The Rangers are 0-2 vs. the Devils this…

300 Rangers recall J.T. Miller from Hartford

I imagine this means Benoit Pouliot is out tomorrow, and if Derek Dorsett is able to play (wrist), maybe Taylor Pyatt too. From the Rangers: RANGERS RECALL J.T. MILLER FROM HARTFORD NEW YORK, December 6, 2013 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the…

504 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Baby Buffaloes

[polldaddy poll=7622214 align=”left”] Game 29. Rangers at Baby Buffaloes. Ya boys, through more than one-third of the season, sit at .500 (not NHL .500, but actual .500) with no Bettman Bonus Points for losing and zero participation in Breakaway Contests After The Hockey Game Ends (BCATHGE). Can they be…

444 It’s Go Time! … Jets at Rangers; Live Chat Tuesday at noon

[polldaddy poll=7612532 align=”left”] Game 28. Jets at Rangers. Let the mini-controversy grow! Cam Talbot starts his second straight game while Henrik Lundqvist sits as his backup. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault, who may just be looking to light a fire under Lundqvist, said that the former Vezina Trophy winner is…

662 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Bruins

[polldaddy poll=7604140 align=”left”] Game 26. Rangers at Bruins. Ya boys have won three of four on this five-game road trip. They return home to face Vancouver and You-Know-Who tomorrow afternoon, which begins a stretch  in which the Rangers play 11 of the next 12 at the Garden. Henrik Lundqvist…

522 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Panthers

[polldaddy poll=7599605 align=”left”] Game 25. Rangers at Panthers. Ya boys come off that woeful 5-0 loss in Tampa two nights ago. They play the fourth of a five-game trip that ends in Boston Friday afternoon. Michael Del Zotto is a prucha (healthy scratch) for the fifth time. Clock must…

Hockey
533 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) Wow, just too, too easy for the home team. Did a lot of guys on defense, and the guy in goal, have a bad game? Sure did. Not that there’s any shame or blame on a goalie in giving up three breakaway goals, but Henrik Lundqvist got beaten…

Hockey
314 Rangers-Predators in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers, with their new system, defend. They succeed because/if/when they defend. I keep going back to what Alain Vigneault said on the last homestand when I asked him about the way they defend, and he said a big part of that is taking care of the puck…

Hockey
803 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) The goalkeeper. Where’s his get-away car? Because he committed a crime against the Stars, grand theft. Wow. This could have been over early, and would have been a dreadful way to lose, out of the gate like that, especially after losing three of four close ones. And, after…

171 Rangers-Bruins in review … Live Chat today at noon

Reminder: We’ll do a Live Chat today at noon. For those with mobile devices, you can join us from the ledge. Thoughts: 1) Boy, oh boy, sometimes you laugh at the rhetoric … over the years, how many times have we heard the Rangers talking about how they’d played well…

Hockey
556 Rangers-Kings in review

Thoughts: 1) Two 1-0 games, both good paced, one a little more physical, but worlds different, IMO. I thought the Rangers in Montreal controlled play for most of the night, with a few late surges by the Habs, but they defended well throughout. Granted, I think L.A. is a better…
