Happy New Year to all of you! And thanks for making this place the nuttiest, funniest, mostly intelligent and passionate, best hockey site on the internet. Thoughts: 1) I thought the Rangers played much better defensively last night than they did in Dallas. Much better. Yet here’s the thing with…

483 Rangers-Flames in review

Thoughts: 1) I still don’t think the Rangers are near where they will eventually be. But points are points are points, and they need them, and eight points in four games really moves you up in the standings. I think they were better against Pittsburgh, even though they blew the…

151 Rangers-Canucks in review

Thoughts: 1) A former Vancouver and Rangers coach, Roger Neilson, always said, it’s not who you play as much as when you play them. It was a gift getting a team returning from a seven-game trip. That said, full marks to the Rangers — who’ve been off since October –…

271 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) That could have been a disaster. I understand there were some bounces. The tying goal especially. The puck hopped on Marc Staal, just as the earlier puck hopped on Brian Dumoulin on the Rick Nash goal. And Steve Downie’s shot…

339 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) There’s no way to sugar-coat it. That was a horrible loss on so many levels. A 2-0 lead, in control, some awful defensive coverage, then the absolute gift 5-on-3s and a double-minor mixed in, including one long shift where one of the three Red Wings on ice had…
