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

Game 58. Blue Jackets at Rangers. Click here for my pre-game video. Twenty-five games left. Holy shishkebab. And the trade deadline eight days away. Seems this season just started. Rangers are 8-1-2 in their last 11, 6-1-2 since Henrik Lundqvist was sidelined with a vascular injury in his neck.…

312 Rangers-Sabres in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers sure didn’t play this way in front of Cam Talbot the last five or six games. On the other hand, they weren’t playing the god-awful Baby Buffaloes in those games. That said, against some lousy teams and some good teams, the Rangers hung out Talbot to…

Click here for my game story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) It’s so cold I saw a politician with his hands in his own pockets. It’s so cold, I was in traffic and some guy flipped me the mitten. 2) Ah, yes, the shootout. You know how I feel about it…

293 Rangers-Maple Leafs in review

Thoughts: 1) The Maple Leaves are so bad I wanted to throw my shirt onto the ice. Yet, in three terribly undisciplined games this season, Toronto outscored the Rangers 15-12. Right, 27 goals in three games. If all teams could play that way the NHL could get rid of all…

149 Rangers’ no-show performance raises questions

My story from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Over the last four seasons, current season included, the Rangers are 152-89-22. Over the last three, they have played nine playoff series. The relative success they’ve had has largely been based on this: The Rangers don’t take many nights off. Their effort is…
