322 Rangers-Devils Game 1 in review

Thoughts: 1) Ya boys sure do stick with it, don’t they? And at 0-0 in the lockerroom after being pretty much pinned in the second, they sure must have felt that they would win this game. And then they did. Not surprised. 2) Dan (Block Ness Monster) Girardi had a…

185 Rangers-Capitals Game 7 in review

Happy Mother’s Day! Thoughts: 1) I am almost without speech because I don’t know what to say. Other than that was a fabulously hard-played hockey game, the kind you’d really hope to get in a Game 7. The Rangers were really good from the start, and to the finish. In…

Hockey
133 Rangers-Capitals Game 1 in review

Thoughts: 1) I don’t know why I always feel this way, maybe because I’ve seen so many series go this way, but I still expect it to be 1-1 after two games. 2) Game 1 probably didn’t seem as close as it really was, but it was. The Capitals didn’t…

102 Rangers sign Chris Kreider

It’s official. The Rangers have finally signed their 2009 first-round pick Chris Kredier, who won his second NCAA championship in three years with Boston College on Saturday. The big winger, whose skating has had scouts raving and the Rangers hoping he’d leave school early for well over a year, will…

147 Gomez for No Gomez

So here we are, the Rangers on the verge of clinching the Patrick Division and the No. 1 seed in the East, in the hunt for the Presidents’ Trophy in the final week of the season, and who knows what in the playoffs. And the Montreal Canadiens, that prideful iconic…

243 Erixon assigned to AHL Whale

So I guess Anton Stralman is your No. 6 now, unless Eminger is getting closer to returning. From the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS TRANSACTION UPDATE New York, March 29, 2012 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has assigned defenseman Tim Erixon…

335 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) This would have been more fun if they’d met a month or so ago, when they were both tearing it up. Would have been more of a measuring stick for both teams. 2) Would have been more fun for me, anyway, if the Rangers wore their traditional blue…

361 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) I could not have dreamed the Rangers would be where they are without Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik paying on the first line together all year.  Imagine if this works now? Imagine if the Rangers finally have that legit first-line with two proven first-line players and a rookie…

609 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) 40-15-6, 86 points with a quarter of a season left. You kiddin’ me? 2) Henrik Lundqvist. Seven straight seasons of 30 wins. Forty-three career shutouts. Eight this season; 10-2-0 with a 1.24 goals against average, .952 save percentage and four shutouts in his last 12 games. A record…

89 Glen Sather on the trade deadline

Here’s the audio from the delayed Glen Sather post-trade deadline press conference (at the beginning he’s trading some barbs with former teammate Pete Stemkowski; not sure how much of it the microphone picked up):

171 Deadline passes … reaction to follow

We are expecting Glen Sather to address the media around 4:45 p.m. to discuss the deadline day. I will put up audio shortly thereafter. For those just tuning in, the Rangers acquired 6-7, 270-pound defenseman/winger John Scott — a true enforcer — from the Blackhawks for a fifth-round pick. They…

183 It’s Go Time! … Trade deadline edition

Not sure how this is going to work today, but with the Rangers having a morning skate at MSG, and a game tonight, I’m planning on spending the entire day in NYC and not, as usual, at my desk in my pajamas waiting out the 3 p.m. deadline. … So…

500 No Rick Nash, no significant moves for Rangers

As of Sunday evening, 21 hours before the deadline, it sure sounds as if the Rangers will not be getting Rick Nash. It also sounds as if, unless something major changes, they will not be making any significant moves before the 3 p.m. deadline tomorrow. Guessing that Columbus wouldn’t back…

John Tortorella before last night’s game: I think we’ve got a good group that’s struggling a bit with some of the details of our game. But it’s Game 60 and we’re talking about these struggles. I’m pretty happy that it’s taken this long to maybe talk about this stuff here.…

527 Guest blogger Eric Nova: Rangers-Penguins in review

(Ed. note: Eric Nova writes his own Rangers blog which you can see at http://www.ericnyr.blogspot.com) Thoughts: Teams with lots of highly skilled and speedy players have proven to be very dangerous to the Rangers. NYR’s grinding and fore-checking game is a great thing when run right. There were glimpses of…

466 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) On the Michael Del Zotto non-goal … I understand that the replay everybody saw on TV and in MSG was with the unofficial scoreboard clock. The NHL situation room in Toronto and/or the replay judge (John Damante in this case) in the arena, has the actual official clock burned…
