504 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Bleak, bleaker, bleakest? With Winnipeg coming for a critical game Monday, the trade deadline Wednesday and then a home-and-home with Pittsburgh, this could get worse before it gets better. Seriously. 2) That said, I don’t think there’s a move or a player available, or a single need that…

241 Rangers-Wild in review

Thoughts: 1) Mentioned this after the game last night. It’s getting late, and when it’s this late, a three-point lead is big. It’s even bigger when you have the tiebreaker in your pocket, as the Rangers do. So in effect, it’s a four-point lead on Pittsburgh with six to play.…

549 It’s Go Time!

Game 76. The contest is now closed. No more entries please. Thanks for playing and good luck. First of the final back-to-back set of the season. Ya boys have won three of their last four. They remain a point up on Pitt, which is playing the Islanders right now. Henrik…

673 It’s Go Time!

Game 49. First, about the ticket contest. I’m still tabulating the results. Looks like we had two contestants with 4-3 Devils, and neither had Kovalchuk with GWG. Hope to make it official shortly. Next, we’re planning a live chat tomorrow, Thursday, at 11:30 a.m. So plan on bringing questions/comments and…

790 It’s Go Time!

Game 48. The ticket contest is now closed. Thank you for playing. And a special thank you to the guys who did it wrong (deep exhale of exasperation).  And may I just say that it’s going to be really easy to judge the contest if the Devils win the game,…

169 Rangers-Predators in review (updated)

Bizarre night topped by Jim Dolan, all smiles and giggles, popping into John Tortorella’s press conference. I think what happened is that Dolan was in Tortorella’s office and the coach asked him if he wanted to do the press conference instead of Torts. And Dolan took the dare and went…

From the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS TRANSACTION UPDATE Erik Christensen Assigned to Connecticut on a Conditioning Stint             New York, January 11, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that forward Erik Christensen has been assigned to the Connecticut…

27 Tortorella pre-game

John Tortorella spoke about Stu Bickel’s play, about the need for Brian Boyle (and other third- and fourth-line players to score some goals), about moving Dan Girardi to the point on the PP (right-handed shot), and about the possibility that Wojtek Wolski and Erik Christensen go to Hartford for conditioning…

402 It’s Go Time!

Game 38. HBO’s finale of “24/7″ debuts tonight at 10, replayed again at 11. The Winter Classic and all the other distractions are now in the rear-view mirror as ya boys approach the mid-way point of the season and the all-star break having won two in a row and seven…

Game 35. First of three in a row on the road for your first-place boys, on a five-game winning streak. A 7:30 start for Versus (exclusive telecast). Followed by episode 3 of “24/7″ at 10, and replayed at 11, on HBO. (Nine more days before I can cancel my HBO!).…

354 Rangers-Islanders in review

First place in the East. Five straight wins. Top two or three in team defense. Fewest losses in the whole freakin’ National Hockey League. And your New York Rangers really haven’t nearly hit their stride or been nearly 100 percent healthy yet. ‘Nuff  said. Thoughts: 1) Seven goals allowed in…

Hockey
367 It’s Go Time!

Game 34. Rematch of Thursday’s 4-2 Rangers win. Ya boys on a four-game winning streak. With Boston idle tonight, the Rangers could move into first place in the East with a victory. Same lineup, other than Henrik Lundqvist in goal (Martin Biron beat the Islanders Thursday) and probably Jeff Woywitka…

187 Rangers-Coyotes in review

Well, that was about as wild as it gets. Not one for the archives in terms of how to play, or how to win. But, wow, was that a finish. I am racking the rusty rolodex between my ears trying to remember a similar game, and I’m sure there was…

394 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers don’t usually get out hit and outmuscled, but they sure did in the first period and they definitely did on the first goal … even if there was an illegal pick there. I thought they lost about four physical battles on that shift. 2) And from…

128 Rangers-Stars in review

This was the lead to my story in The Journal News and on LoHud.com about last night’s game: Get ready, hockey fans. The NHL is going to shove more nights like this down your throats with realignment. More non-conference games, more games with zero playoff implications. Less passion. Quieter arenas.…

23 Live from MSG … for what that’s worth

No pre-gamer with John Tortorella because he addressed the unwashed masses after the morning skate today. This is standard procedure. It’s always one or the other. So no new news, really. Same lineup tonight, which means Sean Avery is prucha’d (unleash the blog traffic) while Erik Christensen gets a sweater…

172 Rangers-Panthers in review

Not going to get all wrapped up in who did what on a lopsided scoresheet, though I’m sure you all enjoyed the heck out of it, and you should have. Instead, how about numbers?: 17-6-4, second best record in the improving East and fewest regulation losses in the NHL; 8-2-2…

46 Tortorella pre-game

John Tortorella spoke at his pre-game presser about subbing Erik Christensen for Sean Avery tonight, about how hard it is to get something out of guys playing five minutes a game, about the importance of getting Brandon Dubinsky going, and about having the HBO cameras and microphones in the lockerrooms.…
