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.…

20 Rangers 4, Jets 2: Post-game notes & quotes

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…

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…

448 It’s Go Time! … Capitals at Rangers

Game 31. Capitals at Rangers. Ya boys have lost one in a row, four of six, five of eight. Hey, remember that game where they scored more than one goal, in Newark? That was the only such time they’ve hit the two-goal mark in the last six. They have scored…

Hockey
1028 Rangers-Panthers in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not talking anybody off ledges today. I’m just not. Because, though I still think the Rangers will make the playoffs, there’s not a lot to like about this team big picture. 2) Last year’s team wouldn’t have many starts like that, and if it did, Brandon Prust…

1066 It’s Go Time! … Panthers at Rangers

Game 30. Panthers at Rangers. Holy cow, is it really Game 30 in a 48-game season? Ya boys on a two-game winning streak. They play the next two at home (Washington Sunday) then hit the road for three in a row and 11 of the final 17. Chris Kreider makes…

67 John Tortorella pre-game presser

John Tortorella had some pretty elaborate things to say about Chris Kreider … though I have no doubt that a few of you will purposely misinterpret and twist them. He even cracked a joke on another topic. John Tortorella:

Hockey
330 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) This wasn’t perfect (few are) but it was miles better than what we’ve seen in the previous nine days, and better than most games this season, actually. The Rangers created some offense, had the puck more, protected a lead (they haven’t had a lot of practice at that)…

Hockey
270 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) I know I’ve said this before, and honestly, I’m not complaining about the shootout (this time). But it’s kind of silly, isn’t it, that the exact same hockey game for 65 minutes gets played, and if Alex Semin’s shot doesn’t hit the crossbar, or if J.T. Miller continues…
