26 Lightnings at Rangers today

It’s a 1 p.m. matinee as the Rangers play the final game of February, the final game before tomorrow’s trade deadline, and the first of a three-game homestand. Bryan McCabe is expected to make his Rangers debut. Marc Staal is expected to miss his second straight game. Ruslan Fedotenko is…

141 Looks like McCabe’s coming; Stepan not suspended

Here’s a tweet from Nick Kypreos — former Ranger (first off the bench, prematurely, to celebrate the Cup; first to kiss the Cup). Seriously, he’s pretty plugged in. I put a lot of credence in this: #NHL news. Look for #Panthers Bryan McCabe to be traded to the #Rangers as…

423 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Was at a hoops game (really, really good game) so I heard the first two periods on radio, came home, watched the third period, then watched the first two periods. Odd way to watch a game. That said, Rangers-Canes was a pretty entertaining one, wasn’t it? Pretty big win for…

287 Flyers-Rangers in review

So two buddies are on a fishing trip, when they come across a grizzly bear. One of them says, “Run!” The other says, “You can’t outrun a grizzly bear.” And the first guy says, “I don’t have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you.” That’s the way…

367 It’s Go Time!

Lundqvist back in goal, looking to pass John Vanbiesbrouck on the Rangers’ wins list. Kris Newbury was returned to Connecticut this morning, meaning the Rangers have one extra player around. So Steve Eminger is expected to be prucha’d as the Rangers go with the same lineup tonight. You all know…

51 Tortorella pre-game

Will have more in a moment. The only news: Wojtek Wolski will skate in warmup. He wants to play. If he can’t, Kris Newbury will. Back with Tortorella quotes in a few. The most interesting stuff was about how he doesn’t want Prust fighting the heavyweights, and how he takes…

23 Newbury up, Wolski out

Wojtek Wolski is not expected to play tomorrow because of his sore ribcage. So Kris Newbury is back up. Here’s the official announcement of the transaction from the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS TRANSACTION UPDATE New York, February 16, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced…

95 Prospal returns, Drury stays in, so Newbury demoted

Here’s the announcement from the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS TRANSACTION UPDATE New York, February 3, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that forward Kris Newbury has been assigned to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL). Newbury, 28, has registered one…

80 Devils at Rangers tonight

Vinny Prospal is scheduled to make his season debut after knee surgery. John Tortorella said yesterday that Marc Staal will keep the alternate captaincy he was given in Prospal’s absence. I imagine that Kris Newbury will be scratched to make room for Prospal … but maybe we’ll be surprised? I’m…

98 Pre-game stuff

Hi kids. I didn’t make it down to MSG tonight for a variety of reasons, so I’ll be in the chair watching our good friends at Versus and, despite that, trying to watch the game with youse tonight. Maybe listening to the great Kenny Albert and Dave Maloney. Anyway, I…

29 Del Zotto, Grachev, Newbury recalled

No real surprises there. Still awaiting the official announcement from the Rangers. But they will need bodies from among the five they sent to Connecticut before the break, so it’s not shocking that it’s these three. Don’t know yet if Del Zotto is in the lineup Tuesday if Dan Girardi…

168 Panthers-Rangers in review

Ah, what a nice way to start the all-star break. A fluky loss by your boys, and then another snow storm. I remember being on a road trip in Houston with the Mets in 1986, and they were on a roll when the all-star break hit, and they didn’t want…

11 Post-game quotes

First the news: Del Zotto, Grachev, Newbury, Dupont and Kolarik are all going to Connecticut to play two AHL games this weekend. Most of them will be back for the first game after the break, as only Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi are expected to return from injuries. Back with…

27 Tortorella pre-game

First the news. Girardi still out. Same lineup as last night, only with Lundqvist in goal. Just saw one of the good guys in the game, Radek Dvorak.  Back with Tortorella quotes soon. —————- John Tortorella: On Girardi (who showed no improvement and is out tonight). “He’ll be ready to…

354 Canes-Rangers in review

You can blame this one on the injuries and the minor-league roster, but that wouldn’t be accurate, because the way the Rangers played, they would have lost even if they’d had most of their injured players. They didn’t play the way they have played most of the season, and the…

137 Maple Leaves at Rangers tonight

Don’t forget, if you haven’t entered, you have until 6:30 p.m. to get into the contest for a pair of tickets. See yesterday’s thread for details. Meant to mention this in the main post yesterday, because we’d discussed it in the comments the day before and some people — not…
