348 It’s Go Time! … Avalanches at Rangers

Game 57. Avalanches at Rangers. The Rangers begin a stretch of three games in four nights that will led them into the Olympic break (and the Olympic break roster freeze, which runs Feb. 7-23). They host Edmonton Thursday and visit Pittsburgh Friday before scattering to all corner of the…

89 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) The whole Ryan Callahan situation threw a cloud over the game, IMO. And will continue to hover over whatever the Rangers do from now until the March 5 trade deadline, or perhaps the Olympic-break roster freeze Feb. 7. If they think they won’t be able to re-sign Callahan,…

519 Rangers-Islanders in review

(Apologies … tech problems overnight prevented me from including photos in the review. Dammit). Thoughts: 1) I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but the trading deadline is closing in, with the two and a half weeks roster freeze over the Olympic break, and the Rangers…

280 Some thoughts on the Stadium Series, Game II

On this day off the middle of the Stadium Series, some things to ponder as we get ready for the real deep-freeze game tomorrow, Rangers-Islanders at Yankee Stadium, 7:30 p.m. First, I think the Rangers learned a valuable lesson Sunday about the ice. It was chippy, very bad — and…

340 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) I want to start out by saying that this was my first live experience with one of these outdoor games. I didn’t think I was going to like it. I generally don’t care for the hype, and I absolutely don’t care for all the ancillary stuff with entertainment…

I’m headed to Yankee Stadium, where the Devils and Rangers are practicing today before tomorrow’s Stadium Series game. Hope to have audio and video from there later.

Game review
339 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) The Blues obviously got the memo from Coach Ken Hitchcock, or maybe they figured it out themselves. They were embarrassed by the Devils two nights earlier, and as we all knew, they would be a lot better at the Garden. Much, much, much tighter. Nothing that we didn’t…

317 It’s Go Time! … Blues at Rangers

Game 53. Blues at Rangers. Are there really fewer than 30 games left after tonight? Ya boys come off a terrible loss to the Islanders. The Blues come off an even worse loss to the Devils. Should be two angry teams tonight. How either team responds should tell a…

Game review
303 Rangers-Islanders in review (updated)

Thoughts: 1) It really is remarkable how much more the Devils and Islanders have seemed to want the games against the Rangers than the Rangers have. Part of it is that the Rangers don’t treat them as top rivals anymore. They don’t. The Islanders certainly do. You can only imagine…

569 It’s Go Time! … Islanders at Rangers

Game 52. Islanders at Rangers. The Rangers and Islanders play the first of three head-to-head games in 11 days, including next Wednesday’s  Yankee Stadium game, and another meeting at MSG two nights later. The teams have split the first two meetings, each winning on the road. The Rangers have…
