Game 45. Rangers at Blackhawks. Ya boys are 1-1-1 in their last three, 5-2-1 in the last eight. The Rangers have won 11 of their last 15 on the road. They play the defending Stanley Cup champs for the first time since 2011-12, though NBC is going to tell…

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…

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…

428 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Penguins

Game 42. Rangers at Penguins. First game of the new calendar year, first game of the second half of the season for the Rangers, who are 4-1 in their last five overall, and have won 10 of their last 13 on the road. They close a five-game trip (2-1…

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…

294 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Panthers

Game 41. Rangers at Panthers. Happy New Year’s Eve! Please, please, please be smart and be safe if you’re celebrating. Or if you aren’t. Holy shishkebob! Is it really the halfway point of the season after tonight’s game? Last season at this point we didn’t even know if there…

514 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) Henrik Lundqvist. I thought he had no chance on the first goal, none on the third. I thought the second was stoppable, that it was a big rebound (it was) and that he went down early and got beat high glove. But I watched it a few times.…

Hockey
482 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Lightnings

Game 40. Rangers at Lightnings. The Rangers play the second of a five-game trip, coming off a loss in Washington. They are 3-2-1 in their last six. Henrik Lundqvist, who sat out the last three as Cam Talbot’s backup, goes back in goal tonight. Conor Allen makes his NHL…

323 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) I know you guys don’t want to hear the glass-half-full stuff, so I’ll just blurt it out and get it over with. I didn’t think the Rangers were outplayed at all, especially at 5-on-5, in this game. I thought they defended pretty well and a lot of guys…

Hockey
499 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Capitals

Game 39. Rangers at Capitals. The post-Christmas break ends, and the Rangers begin a five-game road trip that will take them into 2014 and the second half of the season. Ya boys have won two in a row and are 3-1-1 in their last five, with a hideous loss…

Hockey
583 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas Eve! Thoughts: 1) The non-existent quick whistle. How is that play not blown dead? I mean, there are so many layers to this onion. How does the referee tell Brad Richards, according to Alain Vigneault, that if the puck didn’t go in on the…

Hockey
466 It’s Go Time! … Maple Leaves at Rangers

Game 38. Maple Leaves at Rangers. Happy Festivus! The Rangers close out their franchise-record nine-game homestand tonight, and they do it coming off their best game of the homestand, and in a while, last night against Minnesota. The Rangers are 2-4-2 on the homestand, and 3-4-2 would feel a…

Hockey
264 Rangers-Wilds in review

Happy Festivus! We will begin with the airing of grievances, followed by the feats of strength. Thoughts: 1) That was one of the Rangers’ best games of the season, and the second was one of the best periods of the season, and the third wasn’t too far behind. Why? Because…

Hockey
280 It’s Go Time! … Wilds at Rangers

Game 37. Wilds at Rangers. Happy Festivus Eve! Get the pole out of the crawlspace. Mercifully, this nine-game homestand is winding down, with tonight’s game against the Wildebeests and tomorrow’s Festivus contest against the Maple Leaves. Then the Rangers go on the road for five straight … in other…

Hockey
378 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) The homestand to hell. At some point, if not soon then later, the Rangers will rue the points they hacked up on this nine-gamer, whether it be the points that make them fight for their lives the final days of the season or the points that keep them…
