724 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Not going to rail about the shootout, but with an all intra-conference schedule and a 48-game season, three-point games, and points for losing hockey games, are going to greatly impact the standings. There are piles of three-point games every night. And if you’re not in the party, getting…

448 It’s Go Time! … Capitals at Rangers

Game 31. Capitals at Rangers. Ya boys have lost one in a row, four of six, five of eight. Hey, remember that game where they scored more than one goal, in Newark? That was the only such time they’ve hit the two-goal mark in the last six. They have scored…

1028 Rangers-Panthers in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not talking anybody off ledges today. I’m just not. Because, though I still think the Rangers will make the playoffs, there’s not a lot to like about this team big picture. 2) Last year’s team wouldn’t have many starts like that, and if it did, Brandon Prust…

1066 It’s Go Time! … Panthers at Rangers

Game 30. Panthers at Rangers. Holy cow, is it really Game 30 in a 48-game season? Ya boys on a two-game winning streak. They play the next two at home (Washington Sunday) then hit the road for three in a row and 11 of the final 17. Chris Kreider makes…

67 John Tortorella pre-game presser

John Tortorella had some pretty elaborate things to say about Chris Kreider … though I have no doubt that a few of you will purposely misinterpret and twist them. He even cracked a joke on another topic. John Tortorella:

330 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) This wasn’t perfect (few are) but it was miles better than what we’ve seen in the previous nine days, and better than most games this season, actually. The Rangers created some offense, had the puck more, protected a lead (they haven’t had a lot of practice at that)…

Hockey
1026 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Devils

Game 29. Rangers at Devils. Ya boys have won one in a row, albeit in one of those silly non-hockey related contests they sometimes hold after the conclusion of a hockey game, in which the loser got a point and made a far bigger move up the standings than the…

270 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) I know I’ve said this before, and honestly, I’m not complaining about the shootout (this time). But it’s kind of silly, isn’t it, that the exact same hockey game for 65 minutes gets played, and if Alex Semin’s shot doesn’t hit the crossbar, or if J.T. Miller continues…

Hockey
476 It’s Go Time! … Hurricanes at Rangers

Game 28. Hurricanes at Rangers. There’s a whole world of potential hurt sitting out there for ya boys, who have lost three in a row and four of five, scoring a grand total of  two goals in the last three. Because tonight’s not just the dreaded (inexplicable and almost unavoidable)…

634 Rangers-Jets in review

Thoughts: 1) Start at the start. You know the Jets are going to come hard, you know they’re playing well and all jacked up about being in the playoff hunt, and that the place, unlike MSG, is going to be really loud and nuts. And that, therefore, you are going…

Hockey
694 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Jets

Game 26. Rangers at Jets. The Rangers — gasp! — have lost one in a row and two of three … and of course the sky is falling. Never mind that they’ve won five of seven. Still, full-panic mode goes into effect tonight if they lose on the frozen plains…

Hockey
834 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) Most of the time, you can analyze a game and say this team deserved to win, or this team deserved to lose. Last night was one of those games that, seriously, could have gone either way, no problem. The only thing that would concern me a little bit,…

Hockey
417 Rangers-Islanders in review

 Thoughts: 1) That’s at least five OT goals by Gaborik the last two seasons—including the triple-OT winner—and three of those on the 4-on-3 PP. He has eight goals, same as Rick Nash. He has four game-winners this season, FWIW. I know some of you don’t want to hear it –…
