Game 9. Rangers at Devils. Rematch of the Eastern Conference finals, and the first meeting since the Devils won Game 6 in OT as the Rangers did snow angels around Henrik Lundqvist’s crease. Both teams are 4-4, but the Devils have three Bettman Bonus Points. Lundqvist starts in goal against…

30 Post-practice interviews: Lundqvist, Callahan, Kreider

Ryan Callahan and Chris Kreider wore yellow no-contact jerseys at practice today. Callahan is still a while away from returning, Kreider probably will not play tomorrow at Newark, and he sounded like he didn’t want to say anything until he was/is told he is ready to return. Dan Girardi took…

  Game 8. Rangers at Lightnings. Holy mackeral, after tonight one-sixth of the season will be gone already. The Rangers (3-4) will start Martin Biron in goal (first start, second appearance of the season) against the Lightning (6-1), the most potent offense in the NHL (37 goals in seven games),…

784 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Wowzer. I don’t even know where to begin. That was just putrid. I thought there was a stretch there in the second period where the Rangers righted themselves a bit, and then they shot themselves in the skate with the Derek Stepan giveaway for a Sidney Crosby (who…

536 It’s Go Time!

Game 7. Penguins at Rangers. Ya boys, winners in three of their last four, finish a three-game homestand in a rematch of a bad home-opener loss. They play their first without injured captain Ryan Callahan. Stu Bickel moves up to forward, Mike Rupp moves up to the third line and…

162 Rangers-Flyers in review; Live Chat at noon today

Don’t forget to be here at noon for the Live Chat … during which, the twitter widget over there ————> might provide us with a Ryan Callahan update. We’ll see. Thoughts: 1) Obviously, first and foremost, and much more important than a fairly solid win and a third in four…

Game 6. Flyers at Rangers. Light up the Empire State Building in Orange in honor of Mr. Snider, Comcast, NBC, Bobby Clarke, Daniel Carcillo and Tom Tostitos. Henrik Lundqvist will be in goal for the sixth game in a row, and Stu Bickel returns to the lineup on defense. That…

298 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Thoughts: 1) It is beyond stupid to think this team was going to stink  it up all season. I don’t think they are where they need to be, and they still need to get more from the guys who play on the second line, or who are supposed to play…

628 It’s Go Time!

Game 5. Maple Leaves at Rangers. Ya boys sitting at 1-3, and this is really the only break in the first seven games on the schedule — two with Pitt, two with Boston, two with Philly. Must win? Of course not. Should/better win? You betcha. Henrik Lundqvist starts his fifth…

388 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) Look at the guys who played important roles and/or played really well at times, or for most of last season, who have played poorly through all four, or parts of all four games this year: Brian Boyle, Derek Stepan, Carl Hagelin, Brad Richards to a degree; Marc Staal,…

Game 4. Rangers at Flyers. The Rangers come off their first win of the season, 4-3 in OT over Boston Wednesday night; the Flyers are winless (0-3) so far, and steaming. They are also banged up, with Scott Hartnell and Brayden Schenn out, and it looks like thugs Jody Shelley…

Game 3. Bruins at Rangers. Opening-night rematch already. Then the Flys tomorrow (so light up the Empire State Building in Orange and Black for Mr. Snider). Ya boys sit 0-2, and panic has set in amongst the Faithful (even though they started last year with three straight losses, albeit with…

410 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) I still think the staged fights are dumb and mostly useless. But to a degree I agree with John Tortorella, that when a guy is in that kind of battle, right in front of your bench, teammates need to take that and run with it, at least a…

Rangers vs. Penguins. Game 2. The 0-1 Rangers go with the same lineup, other than Arron Asham, coming off his suspension from last season’s playoffs, making his Rangers debut in place of Brandon Segal, who was returned to the Connecticut Whale (AHL) as planned. Are you ready for some Sidney…

202 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not judging anything or anybody after one game. But I agree with Captain Callahan, who said, “we’ve gotta increase out battle level.” It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t where it was last year (or the year before), and with some of the guys they lost — who…
