226 Rangers-Capitals getting closer … sort of …

I’m headed over to this mini-training camp the Rangers are forced to endure because the NHL scheduled their four days off between games. Will have audio interviews (fingers crossed, new audio system which works on your phone), possibly some video, definitely some reports (Twitter: @RangersReport). Later today I will put…

487 It’s Go Time! … Devils at Rangers

As you know, the Rangers can finish anywhere from sixth to eighth seed, the latter of which will bring them the dreaded first-round meeting with the top-seeded Pittsburgh Penguins. To get that, the Rangers will have to lose in regulation today. If they get a point in any manner, the…

663 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Hurricanes

Bottom line is the magic number is two. If the Rangers get two points tonight, they’re in. If Winnipeg doesn’t get any points in its season finale tonight at home against Montreal, the Rangers are in. If the Rangers get one point and Winnipeg gets on point, the Rangers are…

447 It’s Go Time! … Devils at Rangers

So the Rangers obviously have bigger fish to broil, or whatever, needing a win for their own best interests. But how often do you guys, as fans, get chances in consecutive games to eliminate the Flyers (as the Rangers did in  Buffalo a couple of nights back) and then eliminate…

Hockey
298 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Buffalo Sabres

Obviously the Rangers are in almost-must-win mode at this point with all the other mediocre teams surrounding them in the Leastern Conference race churning out wins (or at least Bettman Bonus Points). They can eliminate the Baby Buffaloes with a win tonight, so expect Buffalo  to be as desperate and…

255 Rangers-Panthers in review

The Rangers held serve. That’s all they did and that’s all they needed to do. They controlled their own destiny going into the night – a night in which all the teams they needed to lose, naturally, won – and with their 6-1 win over the awful Panthers, they still…

431 It’s Go Time! … Panthers at Rangers

Not much needs to be said. This is a fairly critical game against a very bad team, much worse than the team that beat the Rangers Tuesday. Of course, if you don’t or can’t score goals, every team is pretty dangerous, right? So let’s say the Rangers need to go…

541 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Flyers

Light up the Empire State Building in black and orange! Going to be an interesting night at the Arena that Changes Names Every Five Minutes. The Flyers play the second of back-to-backs, after a resounding win in Montreal last night, and though they’re out of the playoff picture, there appears…

758 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Islanders

Happy Anniversary! … sort of. On April 13, 1940 the New York Rangers won the Stanley Cup. And, as you may know, they have won once since then. So as of today it is officially one Stanley Cup in 73 years. Anyway, the Rangers  are playing one of their most…

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

The Rangers return from a three-game road trip (1-1-1) and complete a home-and-home against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Following tonight’s game the eight-place Rangers will have only eight games remaining, including Saturday’s crucial visit to Long Island. Game 40. Maple Leaves at Rangers. Ya boys are 3-1-1 in their last…

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

Remember this about the NHL’s three-point game: If the Rangers get three of a possible four points in these two games, that means the Leaves get at least two, or possibly three. Makes no sense? Of course it doesn’t. The Rangers can gain significant ground only by winning both games…

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

Coming off their emotional home-and-home series with the Penguins, the Rangers go to Raleigh to play the lowly-but-rested Hurricanes in a game that has as much meaning, maybe more, than the two against Pittsburgh. Two points tonight puts them in good shape heading into a home-and-home with Toronto Monday and…

869 Rangers-Penguins & trade deadline in review

Thoughts: 1) Those first three goals. Surreal, wasn’t it? Just ridiculously surreal. That most of us were thinking the only question in this home-and-home would be “by how many goals would Pittsburgh sweep?” and that most of us were absolutely killing the Marian Gaborik trade, and for that to happen…
