449 Hurricanes at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 80. Hurricanes at Rangers. ICYMI, ya boys clinched a playoff berth with the Devils’ loss to Calgary last night. They still have plenty at stake as they go for a 2-3 seed series and avoid a wild-card. The Rangers’ magic number for clinching that is four — any…

478 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) The playoff picture. Not much changed Saturday, other than the Rangers’ failure to clinch a berth. That is virtually inevitable, given that the Rangers need one point out of their last three, or for the Devils to not run the table. New Jersey is home for Calgary Monday,…

Game review
438 Rangers-Canucks in review

Thoughts: 1) Going to state the obvious here, but the Ryan McDonagh injury at the end of the game knocks all the luster off what was a pretty solid win on a big (in terms of the playoff race) night. Not going to speculate, but it’s probably not the stinger…

752 Rangers at Canucks … It’s Go Time!

Game 77. Rangers at Canucks. Alain Vigneault returns to Vancouver for his first regular-season game there as Canucks’ ex-head coach. The preseason game last fall, though, kind of takes some of the luster off the return, as do the previous meetings between the Rangers and John (Hot Seat) Tortorella.…

Game review
307 Rangers-Oilers in review

Thoughts: 1) Kinda difficult to make heads or tails out of this game, what with Edmonton being such a Northern Tire Fire, with the Rangers getting some really fortunate bounces, and it really wasn’t a very physical game at all, etc. But the Rangers played well. They defended. They created…

238 Rangers-Flames in review

Thoughts: 1) When you score three in this league, you have to win. When you allow four, you deserve to lose. 2) I thought the Rangers were the better team throughout. But a few brain-freezes got them in trouble. Couple of bad turnovers. Couple of bad coverages. And too many…

676 Flyers at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 74. Flyers at Rangers. Light up the Empire State Building in orange and black, Mr. Snider’s Flyers are in town for what could be a first-round playoff preview. The Rangers, who have won four in a row, lead the Flyers by a point for second in the Lesstropolitan…

Game review
228 Rangers-Coyotes in review

Thoughts: 1) Sometimes you get what you deserve, sometimes you don’t. The way the Rangers started, the way they played the first half of the game — and it was a dreadful game for both sides until it got really interesting late — they probably didn’t deserve the pair of…

Before we start on last night’s game, I wrote a column about a relationship Ryan McDonagh has forged with a local kid and former high school hockey player, Gino Mangiafridda of Pelham, who was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident. Click here to see it. Thoughts: 1) I honestly would not…

Game review
211 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) This was an onions game. A big boy pants game. And a lot of Rangers showed up, played with onions, put their big boy pants on. A lot of them battled more than they had all season. Rick Nash was obviously the leader, right from the start, targeted,…

441 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) Guess they don’t suck today. Or don’t suck as much. 2) Seriously, an unsightly win is much better than a near-perfect loss. The Rangers played so much better in their 1-0 loss Sunday than they played in Kanata Tuesday. The difference was in the goaltenders — the two…

536 Rangers at Senators … It’s Go Time!

Game 70. Rangers at Senators. Ya boys have lost three of four, one of those in embarrassing fashion, and now hit the critical stage of the schedule, a point out of second place in the Lesstropolitan Division, with a top-three finish, rather than a wild card, extremely important. The…
