446 It’s Go Time! … Lightnings at Rangers

Game 48. Lightnings at Rangers. This was the last game of last season, Game 48. And on this date, they hadn’t even begun playing yet … the Rangers’ opener last season was Jan. 19, 2013. Strange world of lockouts. The Rangers, in 48 games last season, were 26-18-4 for…

542 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, that was a pretty good start. Maybe the Flyers were thrown off by that rouse-’em-up battle song, “Oh you look so beautiful tonight” they play when the teams enter the rink. 2) Seriously, I want to get to the Daniel Carcillo topic and all in a minute,…

395 It’s Go Time! … Flyers at Rangers

Game 47. Flyers at Rangers. Light the Empire State Building in orange and black, Mr. Snider’s team is in town! Unlike the first time they met, in the eighth game of the season-opening nine-game road trip (a 2-1 Flyers win Oct. 24), the Rangers and Flyers both come in…

Game review
267 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) Although the game was hideous at times, and I thought early on the Rangers didn’t take care of the puck nearly well enough — especially the line that eventually created the game-winning goal — this was a pretty good win. It was one of those whatever-it-takes games you…

397 It’s Go Time! … Stars at Rangers

Game 46. Stars at Rangers. The Rangers begin a stretch in which they will play four in a row, and 10 of 13, at home. Two of the three road games in that period are at Yankee Stadium, the other at Ottawa Jan. 18. Included are home games against…

Game review
631 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

Thoughts: 1) Best win of the season for the Rangers, who are now two over NHL-.500 for the first time this season? Maybe for several reasons, one of them being that it came against the defending Stanley Cup champs who were 15-2-6 at home this season. But for many other…

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

Game 44. Blue Jackets at Rangers. The Rangers come off (yet another) roller coaster of a road trip in which they went 3-2. They have won five of their last seven overall and their last two at home. The Rangers are a game over NHL-.500 for the eighth time…

Game review
492 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Thoughts: 1) The Leafs — is that the same team that played in the Winter Classic? — really put up zero resistance, and the Rangers sure appear to love playing against them. The Rangers, a team that can play with anybody if allowed to skate, allowed to use their speed,…

376 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) This is not an excuse. Just a fact. The Pittsburgh Penguins are helmets and shoulder pads better than the rest of the East. They played almost the entire month of December with their JV on the ice and ran away and hid. They could play the entire second…

Hockey
428 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Penguins

279 Rangers-Panthers in review … Happy New Year!

Thoughts: 1) Happy New Year! Whether 2013 was good, great, bad or horrible for you, here’s hoping that 2014 will be better. And the dawn of 2014 means one thing: Honeymooners Marathon!! It also means Winter Classic today at the Big House, and after the game, the naming of the…
