130 Rangers-Devils in review

Caption above should be: “Boy was that easy?” Thoughts: 1) Was it just me, or did this look like a preseason game? I mean, missing were Ryan Callahan, Rick Nash, Carl Hagelin, Michael Del Zotto, Marian Gabo … oh, wait, forget that one; Martin Brodeur, Patrik Elias, Ryane Clowe (shocker),…

702 Rangers-Mighty Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) I know it’s considered heresy to say this, but Henrik Lundqvist hasn’t looked good since the preseason began. 2) That third goal was a 2-on-2, no defensive mistake at all. Maybe it was deflected. Probably was. I don’t place blame on deflections. If it wasn’t deflected, it needs…

95 Rangers preview: Position by position

Here’s my preview from The Journal News and Lohud.com (unedited version): By Rick Carpiniello FORWARDS: If, if, if, if. The Rangers’ forward group will be better – and really, it must – if Brad Richards bounces back from the worst season of his career; if Derick Brassard proves he can…

The amnesty buyout period began at 11 p.m. Wednesday, and runs through July 4. Players who are bought out under the amnesty exception allowed by the lockout-induced CBA, will be set free no later than the day before free agency, which this season is July 5 instead of the customary…

256 Guest blogger: Mark Romeo … 2013 Report Cards

“2013 New York Rangers Report Card” by Mark Romeo Hard to believe it’s been only five months since we were collectively wishing to see less of Gary Bettman and more of Sam Rosen, but it has been.  Tough to call this Rangers season much of anything other than a disappointment,…

311 Game 5: Rangers-Bruins in review

A picture is worth a thousand words, and the picture right here, well, just wow. Look at the five Rangers around Henrik Lundqvist and Gregory Campbell, look at who they are in a must-win Game 5 of a second-round playoff series, and how nobody can prevent the fourth-line Boston center…

472 Game 6: Rangers-Capitals in review

OK. So for the third time in four playoff series, and in the span of 13 months, your Rangers are headed to another heart-attack Game 7 for you. Take out the Pepto or the adult beverage or whatever helps you get through these games. Thoughts: 1) I think I told…

285 Game 4: Rangers-Capitals in review

I kept watching all the other playoff series going on and wondered why they all seemed so much more intense than these Rangers-Capitals games, why there was so much more nasty in those games, so much more tempo and hitting. Until Game 4. Welcome to the playoffs, Rangers and Capitals…

First, apologies for all the tech difficulties lately. I have no idea what’s going on. We had some dead audio, and this blog post without photos, and no photo gallery. I will let you know later if we’re doing a Live Chat today. Onto Game 3 … So is it…

317 Game 2: Capitals 1, Rangers 0 (OT) in review

Happy Cinco De Mayo. Well, your boys are sure in a hole now, and even if it’s one out of which it would be possible to dig, it seems miles deeper because of their inability to cobble together even one legitimate goal in two-plus games in this series, against a…

571 Rangers-Sabres in review

Two very important games against two inferior teams in two nights, and the Rangers get two critical victories. Hey, you don’t dissect these at this point. Put the four points in the bag and move on. Four games left. Thoughts: 1) I wonder if any of you are taking a…

255 Rangers-Panthers in review

The Rangers held serve. That’s all they did and that’s all they needed to do. They controlled their own destiny going into the night – a night in which all the teams they needed to lose, naturally, won – and with their 6-1 win over the awful Panthers, they still…
