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…

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…

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…

524 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Semantics, maybe. But to me, it’s a streak when you win a bunch of games. It’s a roll when the wins are impressive and complete, when the performance goes top to bottom, and when the best, most important players are playing like the best, most important players. So…

281 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) Derek Stepan. Breakout game? I don’t know. He had that hat trick Nov. 2 after going his first 12 without a goal, then scored four in his next 36 games, including none in the last 13. And while I certainly don’t judge him solely on goals, he needs…
