476 It’s Go Time! … Hurricanes at Rangers

Game 28. Hurricanes at Rangers. There’s a whole world of potential hurt sitting out there for ya boys, who have lost three in a row and four of five, scoring a grand total of  two goals in the last three. Because tonight’s not just the dreaded (inexplicable and almost unavoidable)…

634 Rangers-Jets in review

Thoughts: 1) Start at the start. You know the Jets are going to come hard, you know they’re playing well and all jacked up about being in the playoff hunt, and that the place, unlike MSG, is going to be really loud and nuts. And that, therefore, you are going…

656 Rangers-Capitals in review

Since there was no post-game, here’s John Tortorella’s presser from Blueshirts United. Thoughts: 1) Ryan Callahan=Beast. How about the two plays he made on the 5-on-3 (after losing the draw)? Stat line: Deflection goal, five hits, three shots on goal, two others missed, three blocks, a takeaway. 2) Another nice…

834 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) Most of the time, you can analyze a game and say this team deserved to win, or this team deserved to lose. Last night was one of those games that, seriously, could have gone either way, no problem. The only thing that would concern me a little bit,…

417 Rangers-Islanders in review

 Thoughts: 1) That’s at least five OT goals by Gaborik the last two seasons—including the triple-OT winner—and three of those on the 4-on-3 PP. He has eight goals, same as Rick Nash. He has four game-winners this season, FWIW. I know some of you don’t want to hear it –…

268 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) The Marc Staal injury. I don’t know what to make of it. You just hope something like that isn’t serious. Freakin’ scary though, wasn’t it. I was just mentioning to somebody in the pressbox last night that there were an awful lot of players on both teams with…

475 Rangers-Baby Buffaloes in review

Thoughts: 1) This was more like last year for the Rangers. They got punched in the mouth and all of a sudden they decided to show up. Well, it wasn’t even a punch in the mouth, it was a dangerous, intentional, filthy hit by a cheap-shot artist of the lowest…

Hockey
844 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) Amazing how good you look when the puck goes in. Also amazing how much different this Rangers team is when most of its pieces are on the ice and somewhat healthy. Each line, each D-pair looks more like it should be getting the minutes it gets. And when…

468 It’s Go Time! … Jets at Rangers

Game 18. Jets at Rangers. Ya boys come slip-sliding in, with three straight losses (0-2-1), and four in the last five (1-2-2). They begin a four-game homestand, after which they will have already played 14 of their 24 home games this season. In other words, 17 of their final 27…
