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…

352 Rangers at Predators … It’s Go Time!

Game 50. Rangers at Predators. First the news: Derek Stepan is under the weather and will be a game-time decision, though Alain Vigneault said his chances of playing are less than 50/50. I’m gonna climb out on a nice thick, comfy limb and guess that no matter which way…

204 Bruins at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

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…

Click here to read my story on lohud.com Thoughts: 1) Gotta tell you, that Henrik Lundqvist injury looked pretty serious — and I’m sure everybody on the Rangers bench and a lot of you guys were having more trouble breathing that Lundqvist was. Alain Vigneault told the story of when…

249 Hurricanes at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 47. Hurricanes at Rangers. The Rangers need to figure things out, and Carolina — though playing much, much better lately — ought to be the elixer, especially having played Friday night (a shootout loss to the Blues in Raleigh). The Hurricanes are 7-2-2 in their last 11. The…

83 Rangers-Islanders in review

Seems like it’s been a while since I did one of these. Thoughts: 1) Ryan McDonagh said the Rangers got “owned.” That could be the end of my review right there. But I’ll continue anyway. 2) The Islanders are real and they’re spectacular. I’m still not ready to say they’re…

281 Rangers-Senators in review

Click here to read my game story on lohud.com Thoughts: 1) You can think of this as a win through an escape hatch, one the Rangers were fairly, if not incredibly, fortunate to win. And that would be fair and accurate, and I’d agree with you. You can also think…
