311 Game 5: Rangers-Bruins in review

A picture is worth a thousand words, and the picture right here, well, just wow. Look at the five Rangers around Henrik Lundqvist and Gregory Campbell, look at who they are in a must-win Game 5 of a second-round playoff series, and how nobody can prevent the fourth-line Boston center…

235 Game 4: Rangers-Bruins in review

Is it possible? Um. Probably not. But ya boys can sure make things interesting if they can somehow win Saturday evening in Boston. Like Derick Brassard said, “We’re looking forward to going to Boston. The pressure is on them. Toronto came back from 3-1 and it’s possible. We just want…

737 It’s Go Time! … Game 4: Bruins at Rangers

As you’ve seen/heard by now, Brad Richards is a healthy scratch tonight, and is certainly done as a Ranger (unless they somehow come back in this series, maybe?) … He will be bought out after the season, the Rangers paying him $24 million  over 14 years as a parting gift…

272 Game 2: Rangers-Bruins in review

Gotta tell you, I didn’t think the Rangers could do the 0-2 trick against Washington, so I’m not saying “no way,” but I really don’t get the feeling that this Boston team is going to lose four of five. I think these Bruins are better than Washington, play a style…

487 It’s Go Time! … Devils at Rangers

As you know, the Rangers can finish anywhere from sixth to eighth seed, the latter of which will bring them the dreaded first-round meeting with the top-seeded Pittsburgh Penguins. To get that, the Rangers will have to lose in regulation today. If they get a point in any manner, the…

12 Pre-game interview: John Tortorella (audio)

John Tortorella is in playoff mode. Short answers. Though there really weren’t many questions pre-game. He’s going with his full lineup, which includes Henrik Lundqvist in goal, Kris Newbury and Arron Asham in for Ryane Clowe and Matt Gilroy. Tortorella said the goal is to move up as high as…

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…

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…

388 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) Look at the guys who played important roles and/or played really well at times, or for most of last season, who have played poorly through all four, or parts of all four games this year: Brian Boyle, Derek Stepan, Carl Hagelin, Brad Richards to a degree; Marc Staal,…

591 It’s Go Time!

Game 4. Rangers at Flyers. The Rangers come off their first win of the season, 4-3 in OT over Boston Wednesday night; the Flyers are winless (0-3) so far, and steaming. They are also banged up, with Scott Hartnell and Brayden Schenn out, and it looks like thugs Jody Shelley…

190 Guest blogger: Lowell

Some Random Thoughts: ·        The league needs to implement a “Justin Schultz rule.” Perhaps something like making a draft choice the property of the drafting team for seven years. Anaheim got regally screwed by a loophole where a college player can easily become an unrestricted free agent. Here’s how simple…
