271 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) That could have been a disaster. I understand there were some bounces. The tying goal especially. The puck hopped on Marc Staal, just as the earlier puck hopped on Brian Dumoulin on the Rick Nash goal. And Steve Downie’s shot…

339 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) There’s no way to sugar-coat it. That was a horrible loss on so many levels. A 2-0 lead, in control, some awful defensive coverage, then the absolute gift 5-on-3s and a double-minor mixed in, including one long shift where one of the three Red Wings on ice had…

260 Rangers-Lightning in review

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) The Rangers were the better team for a large chunk of this game. And I thought they tossed it away. Alain Vigneault said it best, and said it for me: “Unfortunately when you are playing against such a strong opponent,…

295 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Click here to read my story from the Rangers’ 5-0 win over Montreal. Click here for lohud.com’s photo gallery from last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) It all starts with their defensive commitment for the Rangers. If they defend, if they manage the puck, then their speed shows up. If they…

Click here to read my story (with some very good quotes) from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This one was the worst. There’s no sugar-coating it. I’d say 15 or 16 of the Rangers’ skaters in last night’s game were going three-quarters speed, or as I like to call it, scrimmage speed.…
