162 Benched or not, Rangers need more from Gaborik, others

Going to practice this morning. Will have audio and whatever news from there later. *********************************************** Here’s my unedited column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today. Apologies for typos, etc.: By Rick Carpiniello On the day after, John Tortorella spoke. Not in mono-syllabic answers, either. Here’s the gist: The Rangers…

173 Rangers-Devils Game 2 in review

Thoughts: 1) I gotta tell you, I’m really torn on the whole sitting Marian Gaborik thing. He was ineffective on the wall, pushed off the puck a couple of times in front, failed to clear and did the unforgiveable flamingo on the game-tying goal, on a team that sacrifices everything…

322 Rangers-Devils Game 1 in review

Thoughts: 1) Ya boys sure do stick with it, don’t they? And at 0-0 in the lockerroom after being pretty much pinned in the second, they sure must have felt that they would win this game. And then they did. Not surprised. 2) Dan (Block Ness Monster) Girardi had a…

185 Rangers-Capitals Game 7 in review

Happy Mother’s Day! Thoughts: 1) I am almost without speech because I don’t know what to say. Other than that was a fabulously hard-played hockey game, the kind you’d really hope to get in a Game 7. The Rangers were really good from the start, and to the finish. In…

118 Some Game 7 info

Headed to the Rangers’ practice today as they return from their one-day respite. Will have some audio later on. We’re at that point in the playoffs now where there are nights with no hockey. Awful. Then NBC stretches it out an extra day. More awful. So we’re here to try…

Hockey
213 Rangers-Capitals Game 6 in review

Thoughts: 1) During and after this game, I thought about a lot of stuff that didn’t completely have to do with the game. For instance, no matter how much we think we know, we don’t know. Example: Many of us thought Washington would be a much easier matchup that Ottawa.…

49 Richards and the clutch touch

Here’s Josh (age 26) Thomson’s story from The Journal News and LoHud.com today: By Josh Thomson, 26 NEW YORK — With a young team on the verge of contending in the Eastern Conference, John Tortorella found himself motivated to land Brad Richards as a free agent. The 32-year old was…

Hockey
326 Rangers-Capitals Game 4 in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not going into a gigantic rant about the Alex Ovechkin cheapshot on Dan Girardi because it’s a distraction and the Rangers don’t deserve a distraction with the way they played Game 4. … And I don’t want to call for a suspension because Brendan Shanahan and  the…

Hockey
272 Rangers-Capitals Game 3 in review

Thoughts: 1) Holy shishkebob. I’d been covering this team since 1978, and had never seen one of these triple-overtimes. Saw them with the Islanders, saw them with the Devils. Never with the Rangers. And in my lifetime, there had only been one — the Pete Stemkowski game in 1971 –…

286 Rangers-Capitals Game 2 in review

Thoughts: 1) This from Braden Holtby, the kid goalie, who has it figured out right, better than a lot of youse who have been watching hockey for years: You look at the difference in the two games … We hit two posts last game, and they hit two this game.…

88 Rangers-Capitals matchups

FORWARDS: This is obviously where the Capitals are most dangerous, and most confusing. Alex Ovechkin is coming off what is seen as a bad year (yet he scored 38 goals). He was benched at times in the Boston series. But he loves playing against the Rangers, especially at MSG, and…

Hockey
434 Rangers-Senators Game 5 in review

Thoughts: 1) On the Chris Neil assault on Brian Boyle … not only did he drive-by, blind-side, head-target him, but after Boyle went down, Neil gave him another shot in the back of the head. I don’t think John Tortorella was correct in saying it’s the same as Raffi Torres…

36 Post-game interviews

By now you’ve heard that Brian Boyle has a concussion and is out, presumably for the series, or at least Game 6. John Tortorella compared it to the Raffi Torres hit that drew a 25-game suspension earlier today. Not sure if it was that bad, but there’s also no doubt…

Hockey
214 Rangers-Senators Game 4 in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, there goes my Rangers in 5 prediction. Back to Kanata Monday. Yee-freakin-hah! 2) This has been an odd series, IMO, in that I thought Ottawa’s best game start to finish was Game 3, a game the Senators lost, and one of those many, many games this season…

410 Tortorella post-morning skate

Morning skates are dull. I already knew that, but it’s been a while (since the Bryan Trottier regime) since I attended one on the road. The big news? Well, Daniel Alfredsson said he did suffer a concussion, and the Senators are not ruling out that he will play in Game…
