206 Rangers ready for their big test out West

Here’s my story from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Just one month ago, on Dec. 6, the Rangers played a loose game in Detroit and lost to the Red Wings, their second loss in a row. Well, since then, the calendar has turned and so have the Rangers. They have won…

225 Rangers-Sabres in review

Click here to see my game story on lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This isn’t my original thought. It was borrowed. The Harlem Globetrotters played at MSG Saturday afternoon. I’m guessing they still play the Washington Generals. I’m guessing the Globetrotters left their playbook in the Rangers lockerroom, and the Generals left…

Happy New Year to all of you! And thanks for making this place the nuttiest, funniest, mostly intelligent and passionate, best hockey site on the internet. Thoughts: 1) I thought the Rangers played much better defensively last night than they did in Dallas. Much better. Yet here’s the thing with…

329 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) Apologies for the problems with the new-look blog. We’re having some obvious growing pains. But most of the night, I think most will agree, it loaded quickly. And it looks good. I know, I know. There are some issues, some bigger than others. We’re aware. And working on…

483 Rangers-Flames in review

Thoughts: 1) I still don’t think the Rangers are near where they will eventually be. But points are points are points, and they need them, and eight points in four games really moves you up in the standings. I think they were better against Pittsburgh, even though they blew the…

222 Rangers-Oilers in review

Thoughts: 1) Again, I want to thank the commissioner, the board of governors, Mr. Snider, Mr. Jacobs, and anybody else who forces every team to play two games against all non-conference opponents. So much passion in these games. So physical. So exciting. And those time-zone changes, wowee. Those only add…

50 Brassard has the mumps, sent back to New York

One of the Rangers’ hottest players was sent home from Edmonton with a case of the mumps Sunday. Center Derick Brassard returned to New York, missing Sunday night’s game against the Oilers, and he will miss Tuesday’s game in Calgary as well. Brassard, ironically or not, went head-to-head with Pittsburgh’s Sidney…

151 Rangers-Canucks in review

Thoughts: 1) A former Vancouver and Rangers coach, Roger Neilson, always said, it’s not who you play as much as when you play them. It was a gift getting a team returning from a seven-game trip. That said, full marks to the Rangers — who’ve been off since October –…

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…
