391 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Red Wings

Game 9. Rangers at Red Wings. Finally, and end to this torturous nine-game road journey to start the season (15 counting preseason). Whether it ends with a win, loss or Bettman Bonus Point it’ll be good news for the Rangers that it’s over. Cam Talbot starts in goal again. Henrik…

349 Trade everybody!

Hey, I was busy at “the other job” yesterday but I spent a bunch of time here reading the comments, and especially enjoyed some of those about trading pretty much everybody because of a 2-5 start. Never mind that a lot of the excuses are fairly legit: The nonsensical preseason…

130 Rangers-Devils in review

Caption above should be: “Boy was that easy?” Thoughts: 1) Was it just me, or did this look like a preseason game? I mean, missing were Ryan Callahan, Rick Nash, Carl Hagelin, Michael Del Zotto, Marian Gabo … oh, wait, forget that one; Martin Brodeur, Patrik Elias, Ryane Clowe (shocker),…

167 Rangers-Capitals in review

Before we get into it, a reminder. We will have a Live Chat today at noon. Be there. Or else. Thoughts: 1) The hit on Derek Stepan by Troy Brouwer. I thought the one single replay they showed wasn’t convincing that it was a dirty hit. But the Rangers sure…

654 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron. I thought early on, when the Blues were on the Rangers a bit, he was pretty good, and he moved the puck, too, which really helps a struggling defensive team. Then, ugh. The second and third goals were all on him. It’s ridiculous to expect him…

702 Rangers-Mighty Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) I know it’s considered heresy to say this, but Henrik Lundqvist hasn’t looked good since the preseason began. 2) That third goal was a 2-on-2, no defensive mistake at all. Maybe it was deflected. Probably was. I don’t place blame on deflections. If it wasn’t deflected, it needs…

594 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Mighty Ducks

Game 4. Rangers at Mighty Ducks. ICYMI: Rick Nash was sent back to New York by the team and thus will not play tonight or Saturday in St. Louis with what is almost certainly another concussion. Jesper Fast takes his place in the lineup. Brad Richards switches back to center,…

372 Rangers-Sharks in review

Thoughts: 1) Yeah, defending is boring. This is much better. 2) The noise is already starting about the Brad Stuart hit on Rick Nash. Oooh, the replay is inconclusive. Oooh, maybe it wasn’t an elbow. Maybe the head wasn’t the initial point of contact. Whatever. This was a head shot,…

518 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Sharks

Game 3. Rangers at Sharks. Ya boys, on their one-game winning streak, face Jumbo Soft Shell Shrimp Joe Thornton and Co. They play the third of nine in a row on the road (No. 9 of 15 counting preseason). Rolling the dice with the same lineup, which means Henrik Lundqvist…
