12 Rangers’ slump nearing crisis status

NEW YORK – There are slumps, which come and go. Then there are developing patterns and reason for serious concern.

Jets 5, Rangers 2. Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) Boy, this is ugly. 2) If Henrik Lundqvist plays this way, they’re done. If Ryan McDonagh and Marc Staal (and when he gets back, Dan Girardi) play this way, they’re done. If…

Game 34. Rangers at Jets. Some lineup changes tonight for the Rangers, who are 3-7-2 in their last 12 and have lost six in a row on the road. Derek Stepan returns earlier than expected from broken ribs suffered on that Matt Beleskey hit in Boston on Black Friday…

Game 32. Oilers at Rangers. I’m going on the pre-game show on ESPN radio, 98.7 FM, around 6:40 p.m. Seems the season just started, but there will only be 50 games left after tonight. The Rangers return from that awful 0-2-1 Western Canada trip, and not only face a…

Flames 5, Rangers 4 (OT). Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) The Rangers better not dwell too much on the one positive – that they fought back from behind the last two nights – and it didn’t sound like they would do…

240 Rangers at Flames … It’s Go Time!

Game 31. Rangers at Flames. I think we’re going to have a good idea about the makeup of this team tonight. Not saying they have to win, but they really have to bounce back with a good performance, in a very difficult situation — third in four nights on…

Canucks 2, Rangers 1. Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) First things first. This is where it catches up to the Rangers. For so long they got away with sloppy, or uneven, or incomplete games and won. Now the worm turns. The…

Game 29. Rangers at Canucks. The Rangers begin a three-games/four-nights Western Canada swing — the highlight is Friday in Edmonton (Glen Sather honored, Alain Vigneault’s 1,000th game, Henrik Lundqvist vs. Cam Talbot, most likely). The return to Vancouver is old hat (chapeau vieux?) to Vigneault. But it’s a big…
