17 Game 4: Rangers-Lightning in review

Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) That’s a pretty enormous win, fairly gutsy, etc. And I certainly don’t want to be Negative Nancy or Debbie Downer. But, Alain Vigneault might want to go against his “never critique a win” creed before Game…

732 Game 4: Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

Game 4. Rangers at Lightning. Pretty close to a must-win for ya boys. Not technically, but, you know. Going down 3-1 again and coming back against this explosive team probably isn’t happening. As Marc Staal said, they will need to play their best game of the season tonight. They…

405 Game 3: Rangers-Lightning in review

Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) Alain Vigneault, I think, was blowing smoke when he said that game just “developed” that way and that “games unfold.” The Rangers repeatedly broke down. The Rangers defensive play unfolded. The Rangers’ big edge in this…

733 Game 3: Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

Game 3. Rangers at Lightning. A big-boy pants game for the Rangers at the Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes, after they spit the bit in Game 2 — a game in which I didn’t think the Lighting was terrific either, but the Rangers messed up more than…
