156 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here to read my story on the Rangers’ 5-0 win over Pittsburgh Tuesday. Thoughts: 1) I predicted a blowout. 2) Whatever it is, the Rangers sure as heck distract the living hell out of the Penguins. Part of that is the goalkeeper, for sure. But the Rangers become a…

162 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Reminder: Tonight’s Oilers-Rangers game at MSG is an unusual 6 p.m. start. Thoughts: 1) Toronto’s really not very good at all. Actually, it’s hard to believe that the way the Leaves play is the actually the way they strive to play. If you take care of your end, and don’t…

694 Blues at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 11. Blues at Black and Blues. As if the Rangers needed another injury … Mats Zuccarello, who was clipped twice in Saturday’s shootout loss to Winnipeg and was limping around the practice facility yesterday, is questionable for tonight’s game. He will be a game-time decision … if he…

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Let’s be honest here. The Rangers got way more than they deserved again. I thought the same thing with the Carolina game. Thought the same thing with the Newark game. That’s three of their five wins, in my book. Now,…
