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…

192 Rangers-Flyers in review

Another great night for the Rangers. A woeful loss to a bad team in Philadelphia, and all the teams around them in the playoff race – Islanders, Ottawa and Winnipeg – won. The good news, if there is any, is that the Rangers are still in eighth based on a…

869 Rangers-Penguins & trade deadline in review

Thoughts: 1) Those first three goals. Surreal, wasn’t it? Just ridiculously surreal. That most of us were thinking the only question in this home-and-home would be “by how many goals would Pittsburgh sweep?” and that most of us were absolutely killing the Marian Gaborik trade, and for that to happen…

501 It’s Go Time! … NHL trade deadline edition

Figured we need a new thread here for the trade deadline chatter. I will attempt to track trades and update throughout, though I will be traveling to NYC before the deadline, so also keep an eye on the twitter widgets ——–> over there on the right. And I know you…

680 Rangers-Jets in review

Thoughts: 1) This was a really big win, or more exactly a game the Rangers really couldn’t afford to lose. Could have been a death blow, really. Now if they even get one point out of the home-and-home with the NHL Penguins, then beat Carolina, they’ll be in decent shape.…

Hockey
504 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Bleak, bleaker, bleakest? With Winnipeg coming for a critical game Monday, the trade deadline Wednesday and then a home-and-home with Pittsburgh, this could get worse before it gets better. Seriously. 2) That said, I don’t think there’s a move or a player available, or a single need that…

Hockey
724 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Not going to rail about the shootout, but with an all intra-conference schedule and a 48-game season, three-point games, and points for losing hockey games, are going to greatly impact the standings. There are piles of three-point games every night. And if you’re not in the party, getting…

Hockey
1028 Rangers-Panthers in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not talking anybody off ledges today. I’m just not. Because, though I still think the Rangers will make the playoffs, there’s not a lot to like about this team big picture. 2) Last year’s team wouldn’t have many starts like that, and if it did, Brandon Prust…

330 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) This wasn’t perfect (few are) but it was miles better than what we’ve seen in the previous nine days, and better than most games this season, actually. The Rangers created some offense, had the puck more, protected a lead (they haven’t had a lot of practice at that)…

Hockey
270 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) I know I’ve said this before, and honestly, I’m not complaining about the shootout (this time). But it’s kind of silly, isn’t it, that the exact same hockey game for 65 minutes gets played, and if Alex Semin’s shot doesn’t hit the crossbar, or if J.T. Miller continues…

476 It’s Go Time! … Hurricanes at Rangers

Game 28. Hurricanes at Rangers. There’s a whole world of potential hurt sitting out there for ya boys, who have lost three in a row and four of five, scoring a grand total of  two goals in the last three. Because tonight’s not just the dreaded (inexplicable and almost unavoidable)…
