393 Rangers-Islanders in review

Click here to see my story on lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Honestly. Honestly, did anybody not see this coming? Did anybody not at least think there was a good chance the Islanders would come into the Garden and outskate, outwork the Rangers? I mean, how many times did that happen when…

Game review
317 Rangers-Sharks in review

Thoughts: 1) To put it another way: In their last 14 games, the Rangers have won two fewer than the Giants, Jets and Knicks combined won all season. This streak has gotten ridiculous, not just in pure numbers, but also in where they’re winning, how they’re winning, and how everybody…

262 Rangers-Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, that was a fun game to watch. Strong, physical game with some great pace at times. Anaheim is about four miles better than Buffalo. But the Rangers won this game, were the better team most of the night. Nothing flukey about it. They’re for real. Not yet…

225 Rangers-Sabres in review

Click here to see my game story on lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This isn’t my original thought. It was borrowed. The Harlem Globetrotters played at MSG Saturday afternoon. I’m guessing they still play the Washington Generals. I’m guessing the Globetrotters left their playbook in the Rangers lockerroom, and the Generals left…

Happy New Year to all of you! And thanks for making this place the nuttiest, funniest, mostly intelligent and passionate, best hockey site on the internet. Thoughts: 1) I thought the Rangers played much better defensively last night than they did in Dallas. Much better. Yet here’s the thing with…

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…

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…

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…

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…
