445 Rangers at Sharks … It’s Go Time!

Game 39. Rangers at Sharks. The Rangers look to sweep their California trip, having won four in a row and 12 of the last 13. ICYMI: Rick Nash was the only Ranger selected for the all-star game. I don’t have a problem with that, given that most of the…

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),…

654 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron. I thought early on, when the Blues were on the Rangers a bit, he was pretty good, and he moved the puck, too, which really helps a struggling defensive team. Then, ugh. The second and third goals were all on him. It’s ridiculous to expect him…

558 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Blues

Game 5. Rangers at Blues. Happy Columbus Day (kinda fitting considering all the Blue Jackets here and all the Rangers there)! The Rangers (1-3) play their fourth game in six nights (Yay, an 8 p.m. start!) and the fourth of nine on the road to start the season. They come…

518 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Sharks

Game 3. Rangers at Sharks. Ya boys, on their one-game winning streak, face Jumbo Soft Shell Shrimp Joe Thornton and Co. They play the third of nine in a row on the road (No. 9 of 15 counting preseason). Rolling the dice with the same lineup, which means Henrik Lundqvist…

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…

150 Rangers-Oilers in review

Thoughts: 1) Unrelated to this game, but there was a lot of chatter about helmets and fights and head injuries this week, and Gary Bettman talked about “player safety” again, and it always makes me wonder. Why in Holy Hell does the league allow players to wear their chinstraps down…

355 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Oilers

… or as Ed Norton would say, Erlers. Game 4 of this 15-game trip, and second of four in five nights to end the preseason. Ya boys are 1-2, and have yet to have close to their full lineup in a game, which would be impossible to do with Derek…

120 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Flyers

Game 2 of the 15-game road trip. Ya boys and coach Alain Vigneault in search of win No. 1. Light up the Empire State Building in orange and black to honor Mr. Snider. Martin Biron and Cam Talbot, in a battle to be Henrik Lundqvist’s understudy, split the game in…

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,…
