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

The Rangers return from a three-game road trip (1-1-1) and complete a home-and-home against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Following tonight’s game the eight-place Rangers will have only eight games remaining, including Saturday’s crucial visit to Long Island. Game 40. Maple Leaves at Rangers. Ya boys are 3-1-1 in their last…

62 John Tortorella pre-game press conference audio

Rangers coach John Tortorella spoke pre-game about J.T. Miller’s development, about the games of Anton Stralman and Mats Zuccarello, and said that he would reunite Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh on defense tonight. He also spoke about the mistakes the team made defensively in Toronto Monday. Tortorella had a couple…

477 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Funny how perception works. The Rangers romped over Pittsburgh 6-1 Wednesday. Then they lost in a post-game tiddly-winks contest, 2-1, in Pittsburgh on Friday. Then they beat Carolina 4-1 last night. And yet I would argue that the best game that they played was the loss. Honestly, I think it…

732 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Hurricanes

Coming off their emotional home-and-home series with the Penguins, the Rangers go to Raleigh to play the lowly-but-rested Hurricanes in a game that has as much meaning, maybe more, than the two against Pittsburgh. Two points tonight puts them in good shape heading into a home-and-home with Toronto Monday and…

261 Rangers-Penguins in review

OK, show of hands, how many thought the Rangers would get three points out of this home-and-home series against the prematurely-crowned Stanley Cup champions? Two points? None? Seriously, if I had told you on Wednesday afternoon when everybody was nuts over the Marian Gaborik trade that they’d get three points,…

869 Rangers-Penguins & trade deadline in review

Thoughts: 1) Those first three goals. Surreal, wasn’t it? Just ridiculously surreal. That most of us were thinking the only question in this home-and-home would be “by how many goals would Pittsburgh sweep?” and that most of us were absolutely killing the Marian Gaborik trade, and for that to happen…

501 It’s Go Time! … NHL trade deadline edition

Figured we need a new thread here for the trade deadline chatter. I will attempt to track trades and update throughout, though I will be traveling to NYC before the deadline, so also keep an eye on the twitter widgets ——–> over there on the right. And I know you…

680 Rangers-Jets in review

Thoughts: 1) This was a really big win, or more exactly a game the Rangers really couldn’t afford to lose. Could have been a death blow, really. Now if they even get one point out of the home-and-home with the NHL Penguins, then beat Carolina, they’ll be in decent shape.…

504 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Bleak, bleaker, bleakest? With Winnipeg coming for a critical game Monday, the trade deadline Wednesday and then a home-and-home with Pittsburgh, this could get worse before it gets better. Seriously. 2) That said, I don’t think there’s a move or a player available, or a single need that…

Hockey
519 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m sure there’s some sentiment today that the Rangers beat a bad, struggling team last night, and that is very true. But, we’ve seen it plenty the last two weeks where the Rangers play a lesser foe and get one point, or none, or get beaten by a…

1014 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Flyers

Game 32. Rangers at Flyers. Light up the Empire State Building in Orange and Black! The Rangers have lost two in a row, albeit one of those in a random non-hockey-related contest after the hockey game ended in a tie. They are 2-1-1 in their last four, which means five…

Hockey
724 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Not going to rail about the shootout, but with an all intra-conference schedule and a 48-game season, three-point games, and points for losing hockey games, are going to greatly impact the standings. There are piles of three-point games every night. And if you’re not in the party, getting…
