281 Rangers-Senators in review

Click here to read my game story on lohud.com Thoughts: 1) You can think of this as a win through an escape hatch, one the Rangers were fairly, if not incredibly, fortunate to win. And that would be fair and accurate, and I’d agree with you. You can also think…

181 Despite winning 15 of 18, Rangers have room to improve

First, thanks to the many who volunteered to do the mid-season report card. One of our main regulars will be handling the assignment. My story from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – Have you taken a look at the NHL’s Eastern Conference standings lately? It’s crazy. Even with a little…

195 Rangers-Penguins in review

Wondering if any of our regulars want to do a mid-season report card during the all-star break. If so, please email me at rcarpini@lohud.com. I only need one. Thanks. Thoughts: 1) This is why it’s so silly when we start picking this team apart because of a couple of losses.…

317 Rangers-Sharks in review

Thoughts: 1) To put it another way: In their last 14 games, the Rangers have won two fewer than the Giants, Jets and Knicks combined won all season. This streak has gotten ridiculous, not just in pure numbers, but also in where they’re winning, how they’re winning, and how everybody…

370 Rangers-Kings in review

Thoughts: 1) This is just such a different team now, with its intimidating speed and ability to score goals. Three, four, or more on any given night against any opponent. Down 2-0, most Rangers teams over the last, oh, 21 years or so, were done. Game over. Honest Darryl Sutter…

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.
