225 Rangers-Sabres in review

Click here to see my game story on lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This isn’t my original thought. It was borrowed. The Harlem Globetrotters played at MSG Saturday afternoon. I’m guessing they still play the Washington Generals. I’m guessing the Globetrotters left their playbook in the Rangers lockerroom, and the Generals left…

Thoughts: 1) Apologies for the problems with the new-look blog. We’re having some obvious growing pains. But most of the night, I think most will agree, it loaded quickly. And it looks good. I know, I know. There are some issues, some bigger than others. We’re aware. And working on…

483 Rangers-Flames in review

Thoughts: 1) I still don’t think the Rangers are near where they will eventually be. But points are points are points, and they need them, and eight points in four games really moves you up in the standings. I think they were better against Pittsburgh, even though they blew the…

One of the Rangers’ hottest players was sent home from Edmonton with a case of the mumps Sunday. Center Derick Brassard returned to New York, missing Sunday night’s game against the Oilers, and he will miss Tuesday’s game in Calgary as well. Brassard, ironically or not, went head-to-head with Pittsburgh’s Sidney…

151 Rangers-Canucks in review

Thoughts: 1) A former Vancouver and Rangers coach, Roger Neilson, always said, it’s not who you play as much as when you play them. It was a gift getting a team returning from a seven-game trip. That said, full marks to the Rangers — who’ve been off since October –…

179 Rangers hit the road still searching for answers

Here’s my story from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello Saturday would be a good time for the Rangers to start getting it together. Why? Well, because there’s no time like the present? Or because sooner is better than later? Truth is, as the Rangers play four in a row on the…

339 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) There’s no way to sugar-coat it. That was a horrible loss on so many levels. A 2-0 lead, in control, some awful defensive coverage, then the absolute gift 5-on-3s and a double-minor mixed in, including one long shift where one of the three Red Wings on ice had…
