Two very important games against two inferior teams in two nights, and the Rangers get two critical victories. Hey, you don’t dissect these at this point. Put the four points in the bag and move on. Four games left. Thoughts: 1) I wonder if any of you are taking a… Read More →

Obviously the Rangers are in almost-must-win mode at this point with all the other mediocre teams surrounding them in the Leastern Conference race churning out wins (or at least Bettman Bonus Points). They can eliminate the Baby Buffaloes with a win tonight, so expect Buffalo to be as desperate and… Read More →
The Rangers held serve. That’s all they did and that’s all they needed to do. They controlled their own destiny going into the night – a night in which all the teams they needed to lose, naturally, won – and with their 6-1 win over the awful Panthers, they still… Read More →

Highlight of the post-game was John Moore, happy he decided to accept the challenge and drop the gloves and handle himself well in his first NHL scrap, but adding that he’s “not going to quit my day job.” John Tortorella said the team “absolutely” got a rise out of that… Read More →

Not much needs to be said. This is a fairly critical game against a very bad team, much worse than the team that beat the Rangers Tuesday. Of course, if you don’t or can’t score goals, every team is pretty dangerous, right? So let’s say the Rangers need to go… Read More →
Another great night for the Rangers. A woeful loss to a bad team in Philadelphia, and all the teams around them in the playoff race – Islanders, Ottawa and Winnipeg – won. The good news, if there is any, is that the Rangers are still in eighth based on a… Read More →
Light up the Empire State Building in black and orange! Going to be an interesting night at the Arena that Changes Names Every Five Minutes. The Flyers play the second of back-to-backs, after a resounding win in Montreal last night, and though they’re out of the playoff picture, there appears… Read More →

Still not completely sure what to make of the Rangers’ 1-0 win over the Islanders Saturday night. The Rangers didn’t play great. They didn’t play lousy. But it sure as heck was fun to watch, and the atmosphere in that old, dilapidated building was pretty cool and very loud. Thoughts:... Read More →

Photo by Getty Images. Some good stuff post-game. Henrik Lundqvist said goalie coach Benoit Allaire was telling him all day to get a shutout; and that he was yelling for somebody to get back when he saw Girardi go in deep in overtime. John Tortorella said Nassau Coliseum “sucks” and… Read More →
With the win the Rangers closed to within a point of the seventh-place Islanders, who picked up a point by getting to overtime. The Islanders have 47, one behind sixth-place Ottawa, the Rangers 46, two ahead of ninth-place Winnipeg with a game in hand. The Islanders, who hold a tiebreaker… Read More →
Happy Anniversary! … sort of. On April 13, 1940 the New York Rangers won the Stanley Cup. And, as you may know, they have won once since then. So as of today it is officially one Stanley Cup in 73 years. Anyway, the Rangers are playing one of their most… Read More →
Just a reminder: We’ll have a Live Chat Friday at noon. Be there. Or else. **************************************** The Rangers had a day off on Thursday, a much-needed breather and a rare two-day break between games in this hacked-off 48-game season. And their day off couldn’t have been worse. They had no… Read More →
I’m not going to go nutso about the shootout today, because I’ve done it to death … and will do it again later on, no doubt, about how stupid it is that the playoff fate of teams, not to mention the jobs of GMs, coaches and players are decided in… Read More →
