So two buddies are on a fishing trip, when they come across a grizzly bear. One of them says, “Run!” The other says, “You can’t outrun a grizzly bear.” And the first guy says, “I don’t have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you.” That’s the way…

575 It’s Go Time!

Finally! Lundqvist in goal. Wolski looks like he’s going to play, after a full warmup. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t. Del Zotto’s in for Eminger, who is prucha’d.

51 Tortorella pre-game

Will have more in a moment. The only news: Wojtek Wolski will skate in warmup. He wants to play. If he can’t, Kris Newbury will. Back with Tortorella quotes in a few. The most interesting stuff was about how he doesn’t want Prust fighting the heavyweights, and how he takes…

31 Live from practice

… if you can call this live. The team had a two-session workout, the second half spent on the power play. Now it’s in a team meeting, so we’re awaiting John Tortorella. Could be a while. News? Well, Wojtek Wolski (ribcage) did not skate today, but expects to skate tomorrow.…

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m back. Did I miss anything? Seriously, is there anything I need to know? I mean, I watched all the games, but I really didn’t check in here too much. So, anything going on here? Before I get back to work, special Thank Youse to Sean Mayer…

416 It’s Go Time!

It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: This game is pretty Byfuglien pivotal. Home ice. No Crosby or Malkin. It’s time to make hay. Eminger back in the lineup. Del Zotto prucha’d. Godard to begin serving his automatic 10-game suspension for coming off the bench during the Pens’…

246 Red Wings-Rangers in review … by cwgatti

Same old story for the NY Rangers. Keep it close for 55 minutes, and then turn it on. That scenario didn’t bode well for our boys: On the road against a superior team that has been shut out two games in a row. I wasn’t betting on tonight being the end…

618 It’s Go Time!

The contest is now closed. No more entries. Erik Christensen is back in the lineup, replacing Chris Drury (knee). Martin Biron starts in goal. Michael Del Zotto remains on defense. Steve Eminger  is prucha’d.

As I’ve told youse guys, I’m going away from here for a week. Not my choice. I’ll schedule some blank canvas posts, and my sports editor, Sean Mayer (Rangers fan), will put up some of the pre-game and post-game notes the Rangers send along and any news that breaks, and…

35 Tortorella pre-game

The news first: Lundqvist in goal. Prospal to play LW with Gaborik and Stepan, Del Zotto on defense, Eminger prucha’d. Other lines: Wolski-Drury-Avery Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan Zuccarello-Boyle-Prust.  Will have quotes shortly. ——– John Tortorella: “Same pairs on defense. I thought (Sauer and McDonagh) were our best pair the other night. I thought…

820 It’s Go Time!

As we hit the final 30 … Brandon Dubinsky, Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi are all in. Michael Del Zotto, too. Lundqvist starts in goal. Steve Eminger is prucha’d. Again, no Sid the Skid, no Evgeni Malkin for the Penguins. Here are the probable lines and combos, according to Andrew…

Hi kids. I didn’t make it down to MSG tonight for a variety of reasons, so I’ll be in the chair watching our good friends at Versus and, despite that, trying to watch the game with youse tonight. Maybe listening to the great Kenny Albert and Dave Maloney. Anyway, I…

29 Del Zotto, Grachev, Newbury recalled

No real surprises there. Still awaiting the official announcement from the Rangers. But they will need bodies from among the five they sent to Connecticut before the break, so it’s not shocking that it’s these three. Don’t know yet if Del Zotto is in the lineup Tuesday if Dan Girardi…

168 Panthers-Rangers in review

Ah, what a nice way to start the all-star break. A fluky loss by your boys, and then another snow storm. I remember being on a road trip in Houston with the Mets in 1986, and they were on a roll when the all-star break hit, and they didn’t want…

25 Tortorella post-game

John Tortorella: “We did a lot of good things. Fluky goals and we weren’t able to overcome it. I thought we were, even when we were down 4-3. I still thought we were going to come back, but we weren’t able to get it done tonight. As I said, I…

11 Post-game quotes

First the news: Del Zotto, Grachev, Newbury, Dupont and Kolarik are all going to Connecticut to play two AHL games this weekend. Most of them will be back for the first game after the break, as only Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi are expected to return from injuries. Back with…

First the news. Girardi still out. Same lineup as last night, only with Lundqvist in goal. Just saw one of the good guys in the game, Radek Dvorak.  Back with Tortorella quotes soon. —————- John Tortorella: On Girardi (who showed no improvement and is out tonight). “He’ll be ready to…

140 Rangers-Caps in review

Six days ago, we were sitting in the press conference room and John Tortorella was talking about losing Brandon Dubinsky, on top of losing all these other players including Ryan Callahan, and during the game that night the Rangers would also lose Ruslan Fedotenko. And that was the first game…

207 Rangers-Thrashers in review

That’s a win that feels like two. Or three. Given what they had going into the game, and what they lost (Girardi and Prust) during the game, and again being behind after two periods, and tying it up in the third, and playing a wild overtime and then having the…
