Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Click here to see Alain Vigneault’s post-game press conference. Thoughts: 1) Good thing there are shootouts in this league because that would have been an awful tie. 2) How in the world do the Rangers, against a guy (Curtis McElhinney) who fought…

414 Blue Jackets at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 58. Blue Jackets at Rangers. Click here for my pre-game video. Twenty-five games left. Holy shishkebab. And the trade deadline eight days away. Seems this season just started. Rangers are 8-1-2 in their last 11, 6-1-2 since Henrik Lundqvist was sidelined with a vascular injury in his neck.…

416 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) I forgot already the word Alain Vigneault used about the way the Rangers handled the third-period lead. I think he said “choppy” or something like that. Whatever it was, I agree. I thought the entire game last night was choppy. Far from perfect. And against a lesser opponent…

Sad news Sunday that Carol Vadnais, who played defense for five different teams — including the Rangers for seven seasons — and won a pair of Stanley Cups (Montreal, 1968 and Boston, 1972), passed away from cancer at age 68. Vadnais wasn’t universally loved as a Ranger, probably because he…

Many of us have our favorite memories of Ranger lore. The Cup run in ’94 obviously ranks as everyone’s favorite.   For me, that two-month stretch was heaven on earth, as I’m sure it was for most Ranger fans. This, however, is not a walk down that lane. Instead, I want…
