225 Rangers-Islanders in review

I’ll link later to my game story … which was about how there’s always these goofy swings in Rangers-Isles games, and how the Rangers survived the lows by going back to basics — down low, straight-ahead play. They do it after bad periods. They do it after bad games (see:…

36 Tortorella post-game

John Tortorella: “I thought Hank, especially in the first period, made some really key saves. We got into trading chances with them a little bit. I thought we played better as we went on. But we can’t trade chances. We’ve got to continue to work at playing the proper defense.…

20 Post-game quotes

Marian Gaborik: “The first period was good and the second period we kind of had a little hiccup there. So, big goal by Cally there and we kept rolling from there.” “It’s always nice to score, definitely. But big win. We didn’t have a lot of games lately. But we’ve…

294 Rangers-Sharks in review

And then there were 12. Your heroes sure came up big in the Shark Tank last night, or should I say this morning? Perfect? Not nearly. Better than Anaheim? Only about 100 times better. Big, huge skills competition win. That Bettman Bonus Point could come in handy. Thoughts: 1) The…

332 What Horace Greeley said

You know. “Go West young man.” I understand that the Rangers have to put up with some odd scheduling because they play in the World’s Most Famous and Busiest, which this week, for example, is hosting some basketball event. But, geez, a West coast swing with 14 games left? When…

362 Rangers-Flys in review … by guest blogger TimG

Today was my first regular season Rangers game in person. After over 20 years of rooting over the TV and internet I finally was able to witness the awesomeness that is the Blueshirts, MSG, and a good old fashion beat down in person. Even another winter storm couldn’t ruin the…

729 It’s Go Time!

According to the reporters at the game today (I’m not), both Marian Gaborik and Ryan McDonagh are returning to the lineup. Erik Christensen will be prucha’d. I’m not sure if I like the idea of Gaborik coming back so quickly, especially in a game that should be nasty with the…

532 It’s Go Time!

Marc Staal will be a gametime decision, based on how he feels in warmups. You probably know his decision by now, via twitter, tweeter, tooter, or the MSG pregame show. Fedotenko is back in. So here are the probable lines according to our sources (the guys who are actually doing…

400 Sabres-Rangers in review

This was like taking four punches. Ugh, ouch, ooof, ouch. The Rangers lost, Buffalo won, Montreal won, Carolina won. I will say this about Buffalo, with its three games in hand. I am not impressed based on that game last night. Except for the goalkeeper, that is. The Rangers need…

26 Lightnings-Rangers in review

First of all, be here all morning. Quit your job if you have to. We’re going to do the annual Boneheads Trade Deadline Extravaganza (and picnic) all day long. Starting when the sun comes up … or when I crawl out of bed, whichever comes first. Do I think this…

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…

18 Tortorella post-game

Will update here shortly, and have more later. But first is the news that Marian Gaborik has a concussion, and that it did not happen today. And for that the player has to take resposibility. “He’s concussed,” John Tortorella said. “It didn’t happen in this game. I don’t know when…

John Tortorella: “We make it exciting, don’t we?” “I just think we’ve got some balls. We’ve been like that all year long. I like that about our club. Are we playing our best hockey now? No. Did we make some mistakes? Yes. But we do. We’ve got some balls. I…

15 Post-game quotes

Henrik Lundqvist: “They needed some luck to get back in the game there. It felt like we were really on them, especially in the third. But they kept working hard and got the bounces. So there’s not much to say. We responded in a good way, though. “You score that…

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m back. Did I miss anything? Seriously, is there anything I need to know? I mean, I watched all the games, but I really didn’t check in here too much. So, anything going on here? Before I get back to work, special Thank Youse to Sean Mayer…

246 Red Wings-Rangers in review … by cwgatti

Same old story for the NY Rangers. Keep it close for 55 minutes, and then turn it on. That scenario didn’t bode well for our boys: On the road against a superior team that has been shut out two games in a row. I wasn’t betting on tonight being the end…

Dreadnaught, please e-mail me at rcarpini@Lohud.com so we can arrange to get your tickets to you. ———————– Now.…

As I’ve told youse guys, I’m going away from here for a week. Not my choice. I’ll schedule some blank canvas posts, and my sports editor, Sean Mayer (Rangers fan), will put up some of the pre-game and post-game notes the Rangers send along and any news that breaks, and…
