449 Hurricanes at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 80. Hurricanes at Rangers. ICYMI, ya boys clinched a playoff berth with the Devils’ loss to Calgary last night. They still have plenty at stake as they go for a 2-3 seed series and avoid a wild-card. The Rangers’ magic number for clinching that is four — any…

361 Devils lose, Rangers clinch a playoff berth

For the eighth time in the last nine seasons, the Rangers are in the playoffs. Thanks to the Calgary Flames beating the Devils 1-0 in Newark Monday, the Rangers have clinched a berth at minimum. The Rangers, who have three games left, cannot be caught by the Devils, who mathematically…

478 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) The playoff picture. Not much changed Saturday, other than the Rangers’ failure to clinch a berth. That is virtually inevitable, given that the Rangers need one point out of their last three, or for the Devils to not run the table. New Jersey is home for Calgary Monday,…

452 Senators at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 79. Senators at Rangers. Ya boys can clinch a playoff spot by getting a point in any of their last four games, or via both the Devils and the Maple Leaves failing to win out. More importantly, they are two wins away from clinching a spot in the…

Game review
306 Rangers-Avalanches in review

Thoughts: 1) Mucho confusion in the immediate post-game about what has to happen for the Rangers to clinch a playoff berth. It cannot happen tonight, no matter what goes on in Washington-New Jersey. The Rangers can clinch with two more points, or a combo of points the bottom teams fail…

812 Rangers at Avalanches … It’s Go Time!

Game 78. Rangers at Avalanches. Ya boys have won two in a row and seven of the last eight (even if the loss in that stretch caused the predictable mass hysteria here). The Rangers enter action with a three-point lead on third-place Philadelphia (the Flyers have two games in…

Game review
438 Rangers-Canucks in review

Thoughts: 1) Going to state the obvious here, but the Ryan McDonagh injury at the end of the game knocks all the luster off what was a pretty solid win on a big (in terms of the playoff race) night. Not going to speculate, but it’s probably not the stinger…

752 Rangers at Canucks … It’s Go Time!

Game 77. Rangers at Canucks. Alain Vigneault returns to Vancouver for his first regular-season game there as Canucks’ ex-head coach. The preseason game last fall, though, kind of takes some of the luster off the return, as do the previous meetings between the Rangers and John (Hot Seat) Tortorella.…

Game review
238 Rangers-Flames in review

Thoughts: 1) When you score three in this league, you have to win. When you allow four, you deserve to lose. 2) I thought the Rangers were the better team throughout. But a few brain-freezes got them in trouble. Couple of bad turnovers. Couple of bad coverages. And too many…

505 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) The enormity of the win over Mr. Snider’s Flyers notwithstanding, let’s first get into this Norris Trophy conversation. Finally, it seems, Ryan McDonagh is getting some traction, well deserved. His coach, Alain Vigneault, came out and said he should get some consideration. People around the league — well,…
