65 No Skid for me

Hey, I just want to check in because I’m sick of this whole Sidney Crosby thing already … and I just arrived at MSG. But before I tell you how sick, for those of you who actually, you know, give a carp, here’s some audio from Sid the Skid this…

714 It’s Go Time!

Game 69. Ya boys no longer on a losing streak … and everybody but them looking ahead to Pittsburgh and Sid the Skid Crosby Thursday. So I guess this is not a Must-win game. Henrik Lundqvist is down with the flu, so Martin Biron starts in goal and Chad (Ochocinco)…

35 Tortorella pre-game

Not even worth putting up the audio. John Tortorella was asked if he can say whether Ryan Callahan’s or Michael Del Zotto’s injuries are getting to be more long-term at this point, and he said no. And he was asked if they’re both still day to day and he said…

785 It’s Go Time!

Game 68. Ya boys, on their first three-game (regulation) losing streak of the season … so this is a MUST-WIN! Right? ;) The Rangers begin a seven-game homestand. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal. Ryan Callahan (foot) and Michael Del Zotto (hip) are out. Brandon Dubinsky (sinus) hopes to return. Mats…

353 Rangers-Senators in review

Leave it to my friend CCCP to make perfect sense. He did just around midnight as I was wrapping up the day with a headache. He’s right. A blog is a place for people to vent, and if that means a place to be negative or pessimistic or positive or…

202 Guest blogger SG21: Rangers-Lightning in review

Thoughts: 1) Rangers snuck away with a point here. Even with a two-goal lead early on, TB outshot and outpossessed the Blueshirts. The absence of Callahan and Del Zotto was evident in puck possession, grit and creativity. 2) Pre-game, I knew that we’d be talking about Dubinsky after the game.…

261 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Without arguably their two most valuable players and leaders, the Rangers just chug along. Then they have to come from behind, have guys benched and banged up during the game. Doesn’t matter. No problem. Thoughts: 1) Martin Biron needed a good game, and let’s be honest, the Rangers needed him…

609 Rangers-Devils in review

Thoughts: 1) 40-15-6, 86 points with a quarter of a season left. You kiddin’ me? 2) Henrik Lundqvist. Seven straight seasons of 30 wins. Forty-three career shutouts. Eight this season; 10-2-0 with a 1.24 goals against average, .952 save percentage and four shutouts in his last 12 games. A record…

183 It’s Go Time! … Trade deadline edition

Not sure how this is going to work today, but with the Rangers having a morning skate at MSG, and a game tonight, I’m planning on spending the entire day in NYC and not, as usual, at my desk in my pajamas waiting out the 3 p.m. deadline. … So…

430 Rangers-Baby Buffaloes in review

John Tortorella before last night’s game: I think we’ve got a good group that’s struggling a bit with some of the details of our game. But it’s Game 60 and we’re talking about these struggles. I’m pretty happy that it’s taken this long to maybe talk about this stuff here.…

143 Rangers-Islanders in review

I’m not going to attempt to talk some of you off the ledge. You’re nuts if you are in a panic over this little slide here. And if I knew a bookie, I’d put down a bet that the Rangers, because of who they are this year, will respond in…

527 Guest blogger Eric Nova: Rangers-Penguins in review

(Ed. note: Eric Nova writes his own Rangers blog which you can see at http://www.ericnyr.blogspot.com) Thoughts: Teams with lots of highly skilled and speedy players have proven to be very dangerous to the Rangers. NYR’s grinding and fore-checking game is a great thing when run right. There were glimpses of…

466 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) On the Michael Del Zotto non-goal … I understand that the replay everybody saw on TV and in MSG was with the unofficial scoreboard clock. The NHL situation room in Toronto and/or the replay judge (John Damante in this case) in the arena, has the actual official clock burned…

197 Rangers-Flyers in review

I truly believe that these four wins over the Flyers won’t mean jack-squat if the Rangers wind up in a playoff series against them. It doesn’t work that way. But I also truly believe that the Rangers are better. And here’s the thing. The Flyers have more skill. The Rangers…

17 Post-game interviews

First this: The Rangers will (or maybe they have already) send tapes of Brandon Prust’s fight with Tom Sestito to the league for review. At the very least, they believe Sestito pulled Prust’s hair — which was pretty obvious from the replays. At the worst, there’s the possibity that Sestito…

213 Rangers-Devils in review

What can you do? The Rangers sure have gotten their share of last-minute wins this year, and a few bounces along the way. This one was one horrible bounce, then a puck sliding across the goal line, then one of those unfortunate breakaway contests they sometimes hold after the hockey…

219 Rangers-Bruins in review

Hockey Gods. John Tortorella referenced the Hockey Gods the one night this week, when Marian Gaborik was incorrectly called for a double-minor penalty when one opponent’s stick. and not Gaborik’s, hit the face of another opponent. And the Rangers, rightly, killed the penalties. Tortorella said the Hockey Gods have a…
