156 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here to read my story on the Rangers’ 5-0 win over Pittsburgh Tuesday. Thoughts: 1) I predicted a blowout. 2) Whatever it is, the Rangers sure as heck distract the living hell out of the Penguins. Part of that is the goalkeeper, for sure. But the Rangers become a…

507 Penguins at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 15. Penguins at Rangers. Pens not only hot (seven straight wins), but probably bothered by their ejection from the playoffs by the Rangers, after holding a 3-1 lead in games, last spring. They will likely be after Marc Staal, of course, because he committed the crime of the…

582 Oilers at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 14. Oilers at Rangers. The Rangers come off a hideous loss in Toronto Saturday, a game in which they got swept up into playing the Leaves’ game of chances, executing terribly, playing poorly defensively. Just a lousy game that ended with a giveaway and a 4-on-1 game-winning goal…

162 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Reminder: Tonight’s Oilers-Rangers game at MSG is an unusual 6 p.m. start. Thoughts: 1) Toronto’s really not very good at all. Actually, it’s hard to believe that the way the Leaves play is the actually the way they strive to play. If you take care of your end, and don’t…

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

Game 13. Rangers at Maple Leaves. Ya boys look to avenge a loss to the Leaves in their home opener, a hideous affair, if you recall, which touched off an unsightly three-game losing streak. They are 5-1-2 in their last eight however. After tonight they return home for the…

Click here for my story on the Rangers’ 4-3 OT win over Detroit, from lohud.com. Click here for lohud.com’s Rangers-Red Wings photo gallery. Thoughts: 1) Win, lose or Bettman loser’s point, these games sure have been fun to watch, no? I mean, comebacks, close games, blown leads, more comebacks. Good…

Click here for my story on last night’s Rangers-Blues game, from lohud.com. Click here to see lohud.com’s photo gallery of last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) I’m not going to get into whether the shootout is a stupid, stupid way to decide a hockey game — especially a really good hockey…

428 Jets at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 10. Jets at Rangers. Ya boys won their last game with a five-goal third period, and so have won four of their last five. They have played just twice in the past 10 days, but now it gets busy. The Rangers willl play 15 games in 29 in…

Game review
150 Rangers-Wild in review

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Let’s be honest here. The Rangers got way more than they deserved again. I thought the same thing with the Carolina game. Thought the same thing with the Newark game. That’s three of their five wins, in my book. Now,…

Game review
156 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Click here for another great lohud photo gallery from another bad game. Thoughts: 1) That three-arena ceremony, with the anthems live by the great Lyndon Slewidge in Ottawa was just fabulous and perfect.  Wow. Goosebumps. Tears. 2) Finally, the Rangers had some forecheck in the first period. Some dump-and-pressure. It…

Hockey
300 Rangers at Canadiens … It’s Go Time!

Game 8. Rangers at Canadiens. The whiny, diving Habs are off to a 6-1 start, and they seek some measure of revenge for their whiny, diving, embarrassing Eastern Conference Final loss to the Rangers last spring. Of course the fans all want Chris Kreider’s head on a platter for…
