Michael Del Zotto: “With the way we’re working, you’ve got to think we’re going to get a bounce here or there, and it’s just unfortunate we didn’t get one today.” On his retaliation penalty after Galiardi boarded Girardi: “After you see Gabby go down last game from a hit from…

99 Rangers back on the ice …

… well, what’s left of them is back on the ice. And while I’m off today, others work. I know, I feel terrible about that. Our buddy Andrew Gross has all the news from practice, including that Sean Avery will not be suspended for chopping down Mike Komisarek like George…

190 Leaves-Rangers in review

Watched some of Rangers Encore when I got home at 1:30 a.m. I know, get a life. But it confirmed a few things for me. Some thoughts on Leaves-Rangers. 1) Toronto might actually be much improved this year. Is 4-0 a fluke? Maybe. Do I think the Leaves are a…

18 Post-game quotes

First the news, which I actually tweeted from Tortorella’s presser. Gosh, Tweeting is fun. Gaborik is out 2-3 weeks with a separated shoulder. Drury is out six weeks with a broken finger … the same finger, a different break. Vinny Prospal will have surgery on his knee Tuesday and is…

30 Tortorella pre-game presser

First the news. Christensen skated today and came off the ice. The groin, or whatever it is, still bothering him. So he won’t play tonight. Drury will play on the first line … more below about that. Gilroy is in for Sauer, playing with Eminger.  The rest of the lineup…

307 The Captain is Back

My question is, what if it works? I know, that sounds silly. But what if, out of nowhere, Chris Drury clicks with Marian Gaborik and Alex Frolov? What if all of a sudden he becomes this dynamic first-line center? What if he starts putting up numbers that equate to a…

132 Stepan wins Sjoberg; White, Kennedy clear

First, Todd White and Tim Kennedy cleared waivers at noon today. The Rangers can assign them to Hartford within 30 days without putting them through waivers again. Second, Andrew Gross is reporting that John Tortorella said he can’t count on Vinny Prospal’s return. Of course his season, and thus his…

93 Rangers 5, Senators 4 (SO) in review

Some quick thoughts, then I have to run to football. Hope to make it back to a TV by gametime. 1) I may have said this last night, but the injuries to Drury and Prospal (and maybe Rozsival) should give the Rangers an opportunity to keep and use some extra…

64 More on Prospal, Drury, etc.

More pregame stuff from the head coach. John Tortorella: On Rozsival: “I’d like to see him play, but I’m still not sure. … I just don’t know (about the opener). If there’s any question about it lingering, he won’t play (tomorrow). He probably won’t play. I mean, why? Why put…

169 Cutting down … but not now

Still, I was reading that tomorrow’s scratches will be Christensen, White and Kennedy. And since most teams go with their regular lineup at or toward the end of the preseason, I don’t think that bodes well for White and Kennedy. I could be totally wrong about that. But Vinny Prospal…

212 Questions about the Rangers

Some thoughts as we stand in the middle of the preseason: 1) Are you a little concerned about the number of goals allowed in the first three games? I know, it hasn’t been the whole team, and maybe they haven’t worked on system enough, and certainly you don’t put a…

91 Rangers 4, Devils 3 (OT) in review

Some thoughts the morning after: 1) For a preseason game, especially a first preseason game, that was a pretty good pace. 2) Too early to make a complete judgment but I think Frolov could be a really good one. Again, we’ll hold off before getting too carried away. But the…
