Game review
312 Rangers-Sabres in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers sure didn’t play this way in front of Cam Talbot the last five or six games. On the other hand, they weren’t playing the god-awful Baby Buffaloes in those games. That said, against some lousy teams and some good teams, the Rangers hung out Talbot to…

250 Rangers-Coyotes in review

Thoughts: 1) I just find this stat fascinating. The Rangers have had four trips of three games or more and they are 12-1 in those games. No, don’t ask me to explain it. 2) Admit it. You’re not as worried about the next three, four, five weeks, or whatever it…

239 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) Some days I try to explain the difference between what happened and what was deserved. Not today. The Rangers got exactly what they deserved — though they may have been pretty lucky to get a point — after an aromatic first 35 minutes of no-show. This team, and…

99 Rangers-Predators in review

Apologies yet again for all the technical glitches. Thoughts: 1) Sometimes the Rangers win and I don’t think they’ve played well at all … fairly often, in fact. Very rarely this season, though, have they lost in games where I thought the performance was quite good. This was one of…

Game 49. Bruins at Rangers. The Rangers close a four-game homestand (on NBC), and they do so in the shadow of an injury to Henrik Lundqvist, which, at this point, does not appear to be terribly serious. The Rangers are only saying he’s out day to day with a…

124 Rangers-Panthers in review

Thoughts: 1) Alain Vigneault has said, at times, you don’t dissect a win. A lot of coaches have said that (including Mike Keenan in 1994, and I think Glen Sather in the 1980s). That’s a funny sentiment. But a good coach knows when his team is playing well and when…
