85 Kings at Rangers tonight (7 p.m.) … pre-game notes

As you know today is Henrik Lundqvist’s first practice, at the team’s morning skate, since his injury. I plan on being there and blogging and tweeting my brains out, with a separate post after the skate and maybe video and a transcript of his comments. Not promising anything, but that’s…

706 Rangers at Kings … It’s Go Time!

Game 38. Rangers at Kings. The Rematch. With a little less at stake. The Rangers make their first visit to Los Angeles since June 13 turned into June 14 and then they shook hands with the Stanley Cup champions. In case you were under a rock, all three games…

258 Game 1: Rangers-Kings in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not sure what to make of Game 1. Why? Because I thought it was kind of what we should have expected. The Kings are a bigger, heavier team who beat the crap out of you and give up chances. The Rangers are a faster team that won’t…

594 Game 3: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) First of all, a little tempest was set off in Pittsburgh by a couple of shots Marc Staal took on Sidney Crosby (click here to see them), both of which should have probably been penalties, but as you know, our fine NHL referees are more than likely to…

422 Game 2: Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) Are you really surprised that this series is 1-1? Seriously? I’m not at all. I’m never, ever surprised that any series is 1-1 after two. Heck, maybe you should be surprised it isn’t 2-0 Penguins. 2) So let’s get this streak thing right out of the way. Ya…

506 Rangers-Jets in review

Thoughts: 1) Henrik Lundqvist ties Mike Richter’s franchise record of 301 career wins. He will probably break it in the next seven-plus years. Seriously, this was the kind of win Richter (and Lundqvist) appreciated. One where you had to battle, to hang in, to have a short memory and worry…

446 Rangers at Jets … It’s Go Time!

Game 68. Rangers at Jets. Ya boys come off back-to-back losses to start the road trip, their first consecutive road losses since that nine-game season-opening trip. Henrik Lundqvist is back in goal, seeking to tie Mike Richter’s franchise record 301 career wins, and pass Eddie Giacomin’s franchise record 49…

274 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

Thoughts: 1) First and foremost: My odds on being Rangers after 3 p.m. Wednesday: Martin St. Louis 60-40, Ryan Callahan 25-75, Dan Girardi 80-20, Ryan Kesler 40-60, Zenon Konopka 0-100, Marian Gaborik 10-90. Some other significant player(s) who hasn’t/haven’t been prominently mentioned 65-35. I still think captains Callahan and St.…
