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…

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…

310 No news is good news, or no news is bad news?

I don’t have a clue what we’re going to hear about the Rangers injuries today, or if we’re going to hear anything at all. Here’s my guess, though. If we hear anything — and by we, I mean you — it will be very good news or very, very bad…

345 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) I spent the night talking to a bunch of youse and trying to talk some sense about what we’re seeing with this Rangers team, and I just want to be clear. I am not defending what they’re doing on the ice, or their makeup. I wondered all along…

482 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Even when you’ve been doing this as long as I have, and you’re sitting there writing about what an awful game you’re watching, sometimes you hesitate. I ask myself, is it just because the crowd is dead that it seems awful? Is it just because one team is…

669 It’s Go Time! … Canadiens at Rangers

Game 15. Canadiens at Rangers. The Rangers 4-0-1* in their last five (asterisk = they lost one of those games, but it doesn’t count as a loss, even though they won of those games in the same fashion and that counts as a win — only in the Bettman Bonus…

91 John Tortorella pre-game interview

Here it is, all 35 seconds worth … which was predictable. If he’s not going to answer injury questions, then why the byfuglien should we have anything else to ask him on a night like this? John Tortorella:

224 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Remember last year when the Rangers were almost always the more physical team, the team that won more battles and dictated play, and often the faster team? I thought this was a game that kind of reminded me of last year more than any other this season. 2)…
