488 It’s Go Time!

Yee-hah! Hockey in Texas! Sean Avery makes his return to Dallas, his first since his “sloppy” exit. He’s going to play where he finished the last game, with Artem Anisimov and Marian Gaborik. Those three had some good stuff going — I thought it was one of Avery’s best games,…

113 Rangers-Canes in review

It says a lot about a team when it has lost its way a little bit and vows to fix that, against a good team on a roll, and actually pulls it off. Now, our view today might be a bit fuzzier if the Hurricanes and not the Hobbit had…

31 Tortorella pre-game

The Rangers really only have one extra healthy player around (Ryan McDonagh) and he’s not playing, so there’s really no lineup news. Same lines to start. John Tortorella: On Ryan Callahan: “He’s going to get checked tonight to see if we can get the go-ahead to see if he can…

52 Lightnings-Rangers in review

Don’t want to be a broken record, and I really don’t believe in moral victories, but I thought the Rangers played pretty darn well in this loss, better than they’d played in their previous two games (which were wins). And that’s a darn good point, despite the one that got…

517 It’s Go Time!

The youth movement continues, as Todd White was sent to Connecticut (formerly Hartford, or Reddenville) today. I don’t blame Todd White at all. He didn’t fit here, and he had no chance to succeed here, and he certainly didn’t hurt the Rangers, though he also didn’t help. And that trade…

253 Rangers-Islanders in review

If you didn’t watch this game and just saw the score and the boxscore, you might think it was an impressive beatdown. I didn’t think it really was. I thought the first period was lousy, and I didn’t think the second was miles better. But the Rangers did get going,…

486 It’s Go Time!

Last home game of 2010. Mats Zuccarello made it back, dashing through the snow, from Hartford. Marian Gaborik is expected to return from a groin issue. Matt Gilroy stays in the lineup. Michael Del Zotto gets prucha’d again, along with Todd White. Lundqvist in goal. Here are the probable lines,…

121 Merry Christmas!

In some ways, you guys had already gotten your gifts … these first 36 games by the new-look, new-attitude, new-commitment New York Rangers. Yes, they’re only in seventh in the East, and that’s not worthy of a parade or anything, but you have to absolutely be ecstatic about this team…

507 It’s Go Time!

… and time for the feats of strength. Not to be confused with Rex Ryan’s feets of strength. Yamahama. It’s a special Festivus night Rangers game at MSG, vs. the Lightnings. Mats Zuccarello makes his NHL debut in place of Marian Gaborik (groin). Derek Boogaard (shoulder/headaches) remains out, along with…

109 The Hobbit’s up (updated)

The Rangers have recalled Mats Zuccarello from Hartford, because Marian Gaborik is not skating today due to a groin injury. Here’s the official announcement, from the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS TRANSACTION UPDATE New York, December 22, 2010 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that…

51 Rangers-Yotes in review

Another one of those see-what-you’re-made-of wins last night. I won’t repeat all the stuff about resilience, and about playing to the end, and sticking to the system, and all that. Even though, it seems, every time they win and even most of the time when they lose, they are all…

123 Rangers-Pens in review

Take the win, run to the airport. Because for two periods, it was men vs. boys. Not domination, but did the Pittsburgh goalie make a single important save until several minutes into the third? But these boys don’t care if they’re playing men. They don’t care if they’re down. They…

272 The Captain is back

We expect Chris Drury to play tomorrow in Pittsburgh, and I’m sure those guys who are at practice today will be talking to the captain about his return. But I want to get the discussion going ahead of the pack. Here’s my take: I know he’s not the most popular…

5 Post-game stuff: Drury returns

Quotes to follow. Just want to get this out there first, in case they didn’t cover it on the post-game show. Drury has been cleared to return and wanted to play tonight. He will play in Pitt Wednesday. “It’s not going to be the kids,” John Tortorella said. “I’ll tell…

18 Tortorella pre-game

Hi kids. Will have Torts quotes in a few … First: Boogaard’s shoulder injury is worse than day-to-day. Not sure how bad, but not day-to-day, the coach said. Eminger was feeling much better this morning, and he’ll be a game-time decision. If he plays, Gilroy comes out. Drury will have…

188 Rangers-Senators in review

In the previous thread, we discussed the Matt Carkner blood-flicking allegation. As for last night’s game, the guys on TV were right. This is a game the Rangers probably lose last year. And the Rangers don’t stop playing. They might stink it up once in a while. But they play…

148 Avery climbs all-star vote

From the “credit where credit is due” department, The New York Rangers Blog is the driving force behind the Sean Avery write-in (e-ballot box stuffing) campaign, and Avery is up to 20th among forwards with, at last count, some 64,000 type-in votes. That’s not going to be enough, not when…

139 Senators-Rangers in review

Yes, that’s right, kids. The sky is falling. This was an unsightly loss, caused by a dreadful start and a God-awful defensive-zone breakdown late in the third period. But … c’mon. Teams don’t have bad losses during 82-game seasons? Thoughts: 1) What do you do if you’re a player or…

Brandon Dubinsky: “We’ve just got to make sure we prepare better next game. I don’t know if it’s because we played a team like the Islanders before and we weren’t ready to go because this is a much better team we played against tonight, but either way, every night’s tough…

John Tortorella: How do you figure this game? “I don’t.” Did the early timeout help? “Nope, nope. Why? If I had the answer … I thought the second and third periods we played better … but it certainly didn’t help us in the first period. We were still awful. “Our…
