344 Rangers at Oilers … It’s Go Time!

Game 30. Rangers at Oilers. The Glen Sather banner is in the ceiling, the star-studded ceremony over. By my count, this is the list of coaches/players who went from those great Edmonton teams and through the Rangers organization (not counting staff and scouts, etc.). Let me know if I’m…

330 Rangers at Canucks … It’s Go Time!

Game 29. Rangers at Canucks. The Rangers begin a three-games/four-nights Western Canada swing — the highlight is Friday in Edmonton (Glen Sather honored, Alain Vigneault’s 1,000th game, Henrik Lundqvist vs. Cam Talbot, most likely). The return to Vancouver is old hat (chapeau vieux?) to Vigneault. But it’s a big…

18 Rangers at Bruins today (1 p.m.) … pre-game notes

FYI, it looks like Emerson Etem and Dylan McIlrath will go back into the lineup, in place of Viktor Stalberg and Dan Boyle (who isn’t playing back-to-backs, at least for the immediate future). It sure can’t hurt to have McIlrath’s size in the lineup against the Bruins, and Zacwagon Rinaldo.…

398 A few more thoughts on the Rangers’ Talbot trade

More thoughts: 1) So what happened Friday with Cam Talbot? Well, some of the fallout might provide some clues. We know that Buffalo dropped out early when it got Robin Lehner for a first-rounder. You can argue whether Lehner’s better than Talbot. His stats don’t say he is. But he’s…
