Click here to see lohud.com’s photo gallery from Saturday’s 3-0 Rangers win in Philadelphia. Thoughts: 1) This is a really good team you’re watching here, folks. A really good team that has played a bunch of bad games. Just trying to figure it out. That was the first time Alain…

185 Rangers-Lightning in review

Thoughts: 1) Happy Thanksgiving. There’s plenty for which to be thankful and far more important than a stupid hockey game. So I hope you enjoy the holiday with family. Please be careful on the roads and don’t even dream about drinking and driving, or using the phone while driving. And…

Click here to read my story from the Rangers’ 5-0 win over Montreal. Click here for lohud.com’s photo gallery from last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) It all starts with their defensive commitment for the Rangers. If they defend, if they manage the puck, then their speed shows up. If they…

235 Rangers-Penguins in review

Click here for a photo gallery from last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) I sure wish this could be all about the first 65 minutes of that hockey game. But it can’t because of the bizarro ending, which was nobody’s fault, but very unfortunate. Fact is, the correct call was made…

Click here to read my story on the Rangers’ 5-0 win over Pittsburgh Tuesday. Thoughts: 1) I predicted a blowout. 2) Whatever it is, the Rangers sure as heck distract the living hell out of the Penguins. Part of that is the goalkeeper, for sure. But the Rangers become a…

507 Penguins at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 15. Penguins at Rangers. Pens not only hot (seven straight wins), but probably bothered by their ejection from the playoffs by the Rangers, after holding a 3-1 lead in games, last spring. They will likely be after Marc Staal, of course, because he committed the crime of the…

Click here to read my story from lohud.com. Click here to see lohud.com’s photo gallery from last night’s game, via Getty Images. Thoughts: 1) This weekend was right out of the John Muckler era. 2) Speaking of Muck, I wonder what it would be like around here if Alain Vigneault…

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 Rangers-Blues game, from lohud.com. Click here to see lohud.com’s photo gallery of last night’s game. Thoughts: 1) I’m not going to get into whether the shootout is a stupid, stupid way to decide a hockey game — especially a really good hockey…

116 Rangers-Jets in review

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…
