289 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, the ending and the post-game sure saved me, because I had no idea how I was going to fill out an entire review on this game. 2) This is why some people hate John Tortorella, and this is also why his players love him. That was an…

606 It’s Go Time!

Game 81. Last roadie of the year. Ya boys have won seven of their last nine. With 51 wins and 109 points, they have shots at the franchise records of 52 and 112, both set by the Cup champs in ’93-94. And with 109, they are tied with Vancouver and…

1094 It’s Go Time!

Game 80. You know what’s at stake. If the Rangers win or get a Bettman Bonus Point for losing, or if they even get to OT, they clinch the first seed in the Prince of Wales conference and the Patrick Division title. Or they clinch if Pittsburgh fails to get…

92 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) Things got awfully simple thanks to Philly yesterday. Would have been more simple, obviously, if the Rangers had been able to finish things off. So they go to the final three games — at Philly tomorrow, at Pitt Thursday, home against Washington Saturday — needing a point, or…

459 It’s Go Time!

Game 79. As youse know, thanks to what transpired before the melee in Pittsburgh today, ya boys need only a win or a Bettman Bonus Point for losing to clinch the Patrick Division and the Prince of Wales Conference and the No. 1 seed on this side of the bracket.…

60 Tortorella pre-game

Didn’t time it, but it might have lasted seven seconds in total. Might even be too fast for you to hear it. John Tortorella: Same lineup tonight. Henrik Lundqvist in goal again.

Hockey
383 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) So now it’s 50 wins, and all they need is to go 2-2 to tie the ’93-94 team’s franchise record of 52. That’s secondary. Their magic number on Pittsburgh is three. That’s any combination of points the Rangers get or Pittsburgh fails to get that equals three. Simpler:…

Some pretty special stuff, especially from Ryan Callahan, Brian Boyle and John Tortorella on the Steven McDonald speech. John Tortorella: Ryan Callahan: Michael Del Zotto: Henrik Lundqvist: Brian Boyle:

574 It’s Go Time!

Game 78. The Rangers will announce the Steven McDonald Extra Effort award before the game. They go for win No. 50, which would tie the ’91-92 Presidents’ Trophy team and would be the second most in franchise history behind the ’93-94 record of 52. Ya boys have won three in…

190 Rangers-Jets in review

Thoughts: 1) OK, so it’s 105 points with five games left, and while the Penguins have a game in hand, the Rangers have clinched the tiebreaker over the Pens. So if the Rangers go 2-3 for 109 points, Pittsburgh needs 10 out of a possible 12 points. If the Rangers…

Game 77. End of a three-game road trip and the final back-to-backs of the season. Ya boys are 2-0 on the trip and 4-1 in their last five. Only five games remain after tonight, every other night starting Friday at home vs Montreal, then Boston at MSG Sunday, at Philly…

241 Rangers-Wild in review

Thoughts: 1) Mentioned this after the game last night. It’s getting late, and when it’s this late, a three-point lead is big. It’s even bigger when you have the tiebreaker in your pocket, as the Rangers do. So in effect, it’s a four-point lead on Pittsburgh with six to play.…

Game 76. The contest is now closed. No more entries please. Thanks for playing and good luck. First of the final back-to-back set of the season. Ya boys have won three of their last four. They remain a point up on Pitt, which is playing the Islanders right now. Henrik…

260 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Thoughts: 1) They still have a bunch of stuff to clean up, and still plenty of time to do it. I don’t think there’s any doubt about it. But I have this feeling, and it’s just a feeling based on what I’ve seen from this team, and what I’ve seen…

179 Rangers-Baby Buffaloes in review

Good to see that, after two pretty good wins over two pretty good teams, all it takes is a game in which a couple of mistakes turn into a loss against a desperate team playing well in front of a good goalie to return the panic level. Blame, blame, blame…

The news on Mats Zuccarello’s fractured left wrist isn’t great. It doesn’t appear he will need surgery, but it is a long-term injury, and I’m guessing (not playing doctor) that it’s one of those 4-6 week deals as a best-case scenario. John Mitchell did not play a shift after his…

516 It’s Go Time!

Game 74. Eight left after tonight. Holy mackeral. Ya boys on a two-game winning streak, finish out a seven-game homestand (4-2 so far) against a very, very desperate Baby Buffaloes team. The Baby Buffaloes have won two in a row, and haven’t lost in regulation in their last six (4-0-2).…

335 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) This would have been more fun if they’d met a month or so ago, when they were both tearing it up. Would have been more of a measuring stick for both teams. 2) Would have been more fun for me, anyway, if the Rangers wore their traditional blue…
