329 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) Apologies for the problems with the new-look blog. We’re having some obvious growing pains. But most of the night, I think most will agree, it loaded quickly. And it looks good. I know, I know. There are some issues, some bigger than others. We’re aware. And working on…

374 Rangers at Stars … It’s Go Time!

Game 34. Rangers at Stars. The Rangers take their eight-game winning streak to Big D, where ex-Ranger Lindy Ruff’s Stars are figuring it out at 5-1 in their last six. Tonight’s game features the league’s top two goal scorers. Tyler Seguin leads the NHL with 25 goals, and is…

483 Rangers-Flames in review

Thoughts: 1) I still don’t think the Rangers are near where they will eventually be. But points are points are points, and they need them, and eight points in four games really moves you up in the standings. I think they were better against Pittsburgh, even though they blew the…

666 Rangers at Flames … It’s Go Time!

Game 29. Rangers at Flames. Happy Hanukkah, my friends! Ya boys have won three in a row, matching their best winning streak of the season. The Rangers finish their Western Canada trip and three games in four nights. They are 2-0 so far, having romped in Vancouver, 5-1, and…

222 Rangers-Oilers in review

Thoughts: 1) Again, I want to thank the commissioner, the board of governors, Mr. Snider, Mr. Jacobs, and anybody else who forces every team to play two games against all non-conference opponents. So much passion in these games. So physical. So exciting. And those time-zone changes, wowee. Those only add…

Hockey
425 Rangers at Oilers … It’s Go Time!

Game 28. Rangers at Oilers. The NHL’s latest scourge, the mumps, which claimed glamor boy Sidney Crosby this morning, has taken one of the Rangers’ hottest players out of action the rest of this Western Canada swing. Derick Brassard was sent back to NYC today with a suspected case…

50 Brassard has the mumps, sent back to New York

One of the Rangers’ hottest players was sent home from Edmonton with a case of the mumps Sunday. Center Derick Brassard returned to New York, missing Sunday night’s game against the Oilers, and he will miss Tuesday’s game in Calgary as well. Brassard, ironically or not, went head-to-head with Pittsburgh’s Sidney…

151 Rangers-Canucks in review

Thoughts: 1) A former Vancouver and Rangers coach, Roger Neilson, always said, it’s not who you play as much as when you play them. It was a gift getting a team returning from a seven-game trip. That said, full marks to the Rangers — who’ve been off since October –…

515 Rangers at Canucks … It’s Go Time!

Game 27. Rangers at Canucks. Happy 12-13-14. Finally! A hockey game! Ya boys have played twice in the previous 11 days of this ridiculous portion of the schedule. They begin a three games/four nights Western Canada trip, then take three more days off before heading to Carolina to start…

271 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) That could have been a disaster. I understand there were some bounces. The tying goal especially. The puck hopped on Marc Staal, just as the earlier puck hopped on Brian Dumoulin on the Rick Nash goal. And Steve Downie’s shot…

284 Penguins at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 26. Penguins at Rangers. Ya boys have lost two in a row, a 6-3 loss to Tampa at home that probably was closer than the score indicated, and a 3-2 loss in Detroit Saturday which was probably not as close as the score made it seem. The game…

Game review
339 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) There’s no way to sugar-coat it. That was a horrible loss on so many levels. A 2-0 lead, in control, some awful defensive coverage, then the absolute gift 5-on-3s and a double-minor mixed in, including one long shift where one of the three Red Wings on ice had…

Hockey
483 Rangers at Red Wings … It’s Go Time!

Game 25. Rangers at Red Wings. The bad news: You are, apparently on this blog, what your last game says you are, and the Rangers’ last game was that 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay, their third straight loss to the Lightning. The good news: A) They are 5-0-2 in…

260 Rangers-Lightning in review

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) The Rangers were the better team for a large chunk of this game. And I thought they tossed it away. Alain Vigneault said it best, and said it for me: “Unfortunately when you are playing against such a strong opponent,…

Hockey
713 Lightning at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 24. Lightning at Rangers. The Rangers face their former captain, the Untouchable Ryan Callahan, for the third time in seven games. They have pretty much taken a hands-off approach, allowing Callahan to torch them for four goals in two games. The Rangers are 4-1 in their last five,…
