167 Guest blogger: Manny … Rangers-Devils in review

Before everyone starts demanding trades, firing coaches and writing off the season as a total loss let’s remember that pre-season games are hardly must-win scenarios (a lesson Rex Ryan learned the hard way). That said, with 46 players competing for half that many roster spots, there is certainly an aspect…

43 Happy New Year! … and almost happy new hockey season!

L’Shana Tova to all our friends who celebrate the holiday! In case you missed it, Yahoo.com’s Nick Cotsonika had an excellent story on Marc Staal’s recovery from that hideous eye injury yesterday. In it, Staal said he (and his new shield) will be ready to go from Day 1 this…

Alternate Reality Rangers: How The Last Lockout Changed The Scope of The NHL….Maybe Forever By Mike Aker Whether on television with various incarnations of Star Trek, in comic books with the X-Men, or even in Greek literature, we’ve all learned about an alternate reality, where there exists another realm that…

“2013 New York Rangers Report Card” by Mark Romeo Hard to believe it’s been only five months since we were collectively wishing to see less of Gary Bettman and more of Sam Rosen, but it has been.  Tough to call this Rangers season much of anything other than a disappointment,…

11 Break-up day interviews: Tortorella, Richards

Let’s start here because this was the big topic, obviously. Brad Richards knows he’s being bought out. He’s a smart guy and a pro. John Tortorella talked about Richards, but wouldn’t answer a question about whether his long-time friend would be back. The video is above, but this audio clip…

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…

663 It’s Go Time! … Game 2: Rangers at Bruins

Must win? Not yet. But you probably don’t want to play with those matches again, right. The Rangers came back from 0-2 for the second time in team history against Washington, so you really shouldn’t figure that can happen again, right? I don’t think the Rangers are dead at 0-2,…

So, last “It’s Go Time!” of the season? Or just the second of three games in four nights? The winner tonight takes on the Boston-Toronto Game 7 winner, probably starting Wednesday. It would be on the road if it’s the Rangers, right here in D.C. if it’s the Capitals. By…

876 It’s Go Time! … Game 5: Rangers at Capitals

The NHL again treated its fans like garbage and waited until today to announce the starting times for Sunday, and even though it’s Mother’s Day, the league is still holding you up until tonight if you want to make plans for that day. So this is the best the NHL…

285 Game 4: Rangers-Capitals in review

I kept watching all the other playoff series going on and wondered why they all seemed so much more intense than these Rangers-Capitals games, why there was so much more nasty in those games, so much more tempo and hitting. Until Game 4. Welcome to the playoffs, Rangers and Capitals…
