346 Sharks at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 6. Sharks at Rangers. Wonder if Jumbo Soft-shelled Shrimp Joe Thornton, stripped of his captaincy, will insult the Rangers again. The Sharkies (4-0-1)  haven’t lost a game yet, except for that gimmicky competition they held after the game at Nassau Coliseum Thursday. They finish their three-game/four-night NYC-area trek…

386 Hurricanes at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 5. Hurricanes at Rangers. Panic time? Not yet. After tonight’s game? Yes, definitely. The Rangers have lost three in a row, each uglier than the one before it, allowing 17 goals. In the last two, against Toronto and the Islanders, the Rangers just collapsed at the first sign…

476 Rangers-Islanders in review

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Also, yet another very cool game-night photo gallery on lohud.com. Click here to see it. Thoughts: 1) Blame Michael Kostka all you want, and he made two of the worst plays you will ever see. But the Rangers’ defensive breakdowns were massive.…

583 Islanders at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 4. Islanders at Rangers. Ya boys need to get it together pretty quickly here. As I said in my preview video (above), the last two games were worse and worser. They play the second of four in a row and 14 of 19 at the Garden, where last…

203 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Happy Columbus Day. Click here for a photo gallery that is far better than that game deserved, from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This one was a top-to-bottomer. Actually, a couple of guys played well. But the big guys, Henrik Lundqvist, Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi … and many others? P.U. 2) If…

87 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Click here to see another great photo gallery from last night’s game, at lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) I thought Columbus Day was Monday, not Saturday. The Blue Jackets are a good team, and they play really hard and come at you and all that. Given. But the Rangers probably lose that…

Click here to read my story on Carl Hagelin, from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) I’m not going to talk much about the game, because it wasn’t much of a game. But what’s important, and Alain Vigneault talked about it afterward (see the video, listen to the audio) is the dilemma facing…

Click here to read my story on the decisions Alain Vigneault must make regarding his captains and his roster, from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Alain Vigneault claimed to not have known which players wore captains’ letters Friday night, because, you know, he wasn’t behind the bench. He was upstairs with GM…

175 Rangers-Flyers in review (again)

Thoughts: 1) Happy October. Gotta tell you, that’s enough preseason for me. If they stopped right now, I’d be happy. The last two games, at least, will pretty much be the Rangers’ opening-night roster with a few players battling for the last two or three jobs. And they’ll be playing…
