346 Sharks at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 6. Sharks at Rangers. Wonder if Jumbo Soft-shelled Shrimp Joe Thornton, stripped of his captaincy, will insult the Rangers again. The Sharkies (4-0-1)  haven’t lost a game yet, except for that gimmicky competition they held after the game at Nassau Coliseum Thursday. They finish their three-game/four-night NYC-area trek…

386 Hurricanes at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 5. Hurricanes at Rangers. Panic time? Not yet. After tonight’s game? Yes, definitely. The Rangers have lost three in a row, each uglier than the one before it, allowing 17 goals. In the last two, against Toronto and the Islanders, the Rangers just collapsed at the first sign…

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Also, yet another very cool game-night photo gallery on lohud.com. Click here to see it. Thoughts: 1) Blame Michael Kostka all you want, and he made two of the worst plays you will ever see. But the Rangers’ defensive breakdowns were massive.…

583 Islanders at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 4. Islanders at Rangers. Ya boys need to get it together pretty quickly here. As I said in my preview video (above), the last two games were worse and worser. They play the second of four in a row and 14 of 19 at the Garden, where last…

Happy Columbus Day. Click here for a photo gallery that is far better than that game deserved, from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This one was a top-to-bottomer. Actually, a couple of guys played well. But the big guys, Henrik Lundqvist, Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi … and many others? P.U. 2) If…

Game 3. Maple Leaves at Rangers. Ya boys play their home opener, with some of their retired-numbers guys in the house, and a new banner in the ceiling for their first (real) Garden game since Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. They come off a bad 5-2 loss…

532 Rangers at Blue Jackets … It’s Go Time!

Game 2. Rangers at Blue Jackets. The undefeated Rangers visit Rick Nash’s old haunt. Nash is on pace for 164 goals and 246 points, which would both be records. Cam Talbot starts in goal, so Henrik Lundqvist gets the home opener Sunday against the Toronto Maple Leaves. Tanner Glass…
