339 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) The Blues obviously got the memo from Coach Ken Hitchcock, or maybe they figured it out themselves. They were embarrassed by the Devils two nights earlier, and as we all knew, they would be a lot better at the Garden. Much, much, much tighter. Nothing that we didn’t…

267 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) Although the game was hideous at times, and I thought early on the Rangers didn’t take care of the puck nearly well enough — especially the line that eventually created the game-winning goal — this was a pretty good win. It was one of those whatever-it-takes games you…

Game 46. Stars at Rangers. The Rangers begin a stretch in which they will play four in a row, and 10 of 13, at home. Two of the three road games in that period are at Yankee Stadium, the other at Ottawa Jan. 18. Included are home games against…

Game review
631 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

Thoughts: 1) Best win of the season for the Rangers, who are now two over NHL-.500 for the first time this season? Maybe for several reasons, one of them being that it came against the defending Stanley Cup champs who were 15-2-6 at home this season. But for many other…

353 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Maple Leaves

Game 43. Rangers at Maple Leaves. The Rangers  close a five-game trip with a make-or-break-trip game. They are 2-2 so far, allowing 12 goals in the four games, and were thoroughly thrashed in Pittsburgh last night. Overall the Rangers have won four of six, including a 2-1 shootout win…

376 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) This is not an excuse. Just a fact. The Pittsburgh Penguins are helmets and shoulder pads better than the rest of the East. They played almost the entire month of December with their JV on the ice and ran away and hid. They could play the entire second…

428 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Penguins

Game 42. Rangers at Penguins. First game of the new calendar year, first game of the second half of the season for the Rangers, who are 4-1 in their last five overall, and have won 10 of their last 13 on the road. They close a five-game trip (2-1…

514 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) Henrik Lundqvist. I thought he had no chance on the first goal, none on the third. I thought the second was stoppable, that it was a big rebound (it was) and that he went down early and got beat high glove. But I watched it a few times.…

583 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas Eve! Thoughts: 1) The non-existent quick whistle. How is that play not blown dead? I mean, there are so many layers to this onion. How does the referee tell Brad Richards, according to Alain Vigneault, that if the puck didn’t go in on the…

305 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) Marc Staal. Boy, that sure as hell doesn’t look good for him, getting hit on the button like that by Reid Boucher’s shoulder or upper arm to the chin and reacting as if he knew right away that something was wrong, and then slamming his helmet on his…

300 Rangers recall J.T. Miller from Hartford

I imagine this means Benoit Pouliot is out tomorrow, and if Derek Dorsett is able to play (wrist), maybe Taylor Pyatt too. From the Rangers: RANGERS RECALL J.T. MILLER FROM HARTFORD NEW YORK, December 6, 2013 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the…
