582 Oilers at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 14. Oilers at Rangers. The Rangers come off a hideous loss in Toronto Saturday, a game in which they got swept up into playing the Leaves’ game of chances, executing terribly, playing poorly defensively. Just a lousy game that ended with a giveaway and a 4-on-1 game-winning goal…

Thoughts: 1) Win, lose or Bettman loser’s point, these games sure have been fun to watch, no? I mean, comebacks, close games, blown leads, more comebacks. Good…

Click here for my story on last night’s game, from lohud.com. Click here for a photo gallery on the game. Thoughts: 1) Holy Shishkebob. Ryan McDonagh hurt the same shoulder that sidelined him for the end of the regular season last year. Now what? They were already playing the seventh…

150 Rangers-Wild in review

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) Let’s be honest here. The Rangers got way more than they deserved again. I thought the same thing with the Carolina game. Thought the same thing with the Newark game. That’s three of their five wins, in my book. Now,…

156 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Click here for another great lohud photo gallery from another bad game. Thoughts: 1) That three-arena ceremony, with the anthems live by the great Lyndon Slewidge in Ottawa was just fabulous and perfect.  Wow. Goosebumps. Tears. 2) Finally, the Rangers had some forecheck in the first period. Some dump-and-pressure. It…

386 Hurricanes at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 5. Hurricanes at Rangers. Panic time? Not yet. After tonight’s game? Yes, definitely. The Rangers have lost three in a row, each uglier than the one before it, allowing 17 goals. In the last two, against Toronto and the Islanders, the Rangers just collapsed at the first sign…

Happy Columbus Day. Click here for a photo gallery that is far better than that game deserved, from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This one was a top-to-bottomer. Actually, a couple of guys played well. But the big guys, Henrik Lundqvist, Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi … and many others? P.U. 2) If…
