254 Rangers-Senators in review; Live Chat today at noon

Don’t forget today’s noon Live Chat right here. You can check in from the ledge. Thoughts: 1) For a team that’s played just 16 games, there have sure been a a lot of them for which I really don’t have an explanation. 2) I thought it was fitting, though, that…

482 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Even when you’ve been doing this as long as I have, and you’re sitting there writing about what an awful game you’re watching, sometimes you hesitate. I ask myself, is it just because the crowd is dead that it seems awful? Is it just because one team is…

669 It’s Go Time! … Canadiens at Rangers

Game 15. Canadiens at Rangers. The Rangers 4-0-1* in their last five (asterisk = they lost one of those games, but it doesn’t count as a loss, even though they won of those games in the same fashion and that counts as a win — only in the Bettman Bonus…

224 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Remember last year when the Rangers were almost always the more physical team, the team that won more battles and dictated play, and often the faster team? I thought this was a game that kind of reminded me of last year more than any other this season. 2)…

464 It’s Go Time! … Capitals at Rangers

Game 14. Capitals at Rangers. First meeting of the season, the first since Game 7 of that second-round playoff series last spring, which included a triple-OT Rangers win in D.C. Rick Nash, who has an undisclosed injury (banged up) and Chris Kreider, who was recalled from Hartford in case Nash…

56 John Tortorella pre-game interview

In case you missed it, Rick Nash will skate in warmups, as will Chris Kreider. Then a decision will be made. Which, to me, says you can eliminate “concussion” from the speculation. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal. John Tortorella:

231 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron. Let’s talk about fairness here. Because it isn’t fair if every time this guy plays and the Rangers don’t win, that it’s his fault, or the fault of the decision to play him. He’s not going to go 8-0 or 10-0 or whatever. He’s 1-0-1. Three…

125 Rangers-Bruins in review: Live Chat at noon today

Before we look back at last night’s mayhem, remember we will have a Live Chat right here at noon today. Should be some interesting discussion given what happened and how it happened last night. Be there. Or else. Thoughts: 1) I haven’t had the opportunity to say this in a…

965 It’s Go Time!

Game 12. Rangers at Bruins. Ya boys hit the quarter-pole of this Bettman-shortened season with their third meeting (already) of the season against the team I think has been the most impressive in the East so far. The Rangers  have not won three in a row yet this season. The…

307 Rangers-Lightnings in review

  Thoughts: 1) I don’t get too excited over goals sometimes. Carl Hagelin’s first goal went in off his leg or glove or something. His second goal, if Henrik Lundqvist had allowed one like that, you’d all be saying he stinks. But Hagelin played a wonderfully aggressive game. It was…

450 It’s Go Time!

  Game 11. Lightnings at Rangers. Dan Girardi is expected to return after missing two games with an undisclosed injury. He will replace Steve Eminger on defense. Otherwise it looks like the same lineup (and the same line combinations) that beat the Islanders Thursday, meaning Brian Boyle is prucha’d, along…

491 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) Let’s start with the kid. Or the kids. Please don’t go overboard with this 19-year-old, who isn’t going to score a goal a game, or two a game. But, geez, right off the bat J.T. Miller looks like he belongs, like he has the body and the ability…

397 It’s Go Time!

Game 10. Islanders at Rangers. First meeting of the season in the luke-warm rivalry. (Let’s face it, the Rangers have much bigger rivalries with the Devils, Flyers, Penguins and even Capitals right now). Brian Boyle, one of the “scared or tentative” players coach John Tortorella mentioned after the loss in…

33 John Tortorella pre-game interview

The coach had some pretty good insights tonight on Brian Boyle and some of his other top players, including the goaltender and, without naming names, Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards. He also spoke about replacing the middle of the lineup lost over the off-season. John Tortorella:
