First a reminder that we will have a Live Playoff Chat from downtown D.C. today at 2 p.m. So be there. Or else. Obviously. By the way, the new blog format allows for a better participation experience from your mobile device. Pre-game notes courtesy of the NYR: NEW YORK RANGERS… Read More →
I kept watching all the other playoff series going on and wondered why they all seemed so much more intense than these Rangers-Capitals games, why there was so much more nasty in those games, so much more tempo and hitting. Until Game 4. Welcome to the playoffs, Rangers and Capitals… Read More →

Another crucial game. More crucial, actually. What the Rangers accomplished in Game 3, with a 4-3 victory, was to provide themselves a chance to make this a series. Now they need to follow up with another win or, obviously, they fall behind three games to one. Though that type of… Read More →
Hope to have an video up shortly, shot by Josh Thomson, 26. Meanwhile, here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today, on the Rangers’ new depth on defense: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH — There were some things obviously different about the Rangers in Game 3 of their series… Read More →

The news is that Rick Nash was given a day off for maintenance, and that Darroll Powe (probable concussion suffered in Game 3) did not practice. Ryane Clowe (probable concussion) took part in contact drills, but is still unsure if he can play in Game 4 Wednesday.
First, apologies for all the tech difficulties lately. I have no idea what’s going on. We had some dead audio, and this blog post without photos, and no photo gallery. I will let you know later if we’re doing a Live Chat today. Onto Game 3 … So is it… Read More →
A little history lesson, which means not much: The Rangers have been down 0-2 in a best-of-seven series 19 times (and 0-2 in a best-of-five once) and have only come back to win one of those series, in 1996 vs. Montreal. In those 20 instances, the Rangers were swept eight… Read More →
The quick update: Ryane Clowe (probable concussion) and Marc Staal (eye) were both on the ice for an optional morning skate. Not sure if either will play in Game 3 tonight, but I imagine both want to. Carl Hagelin, who went leg-on-leg with Alex Ovechkin early in Game 2 and… Read More →
The news, in case you still don’t follow me on twitter, is that Ryane Clowe took part in a full practice but doesn’t know if he’ll play Game 3. The only Ranger who didn’t skate was Carl Hagelin, who went leg-on-leg with Alex Ovechkin in Game 2, but played the… Read More →
Happy Cinco De Mayo. Well, your boys are sure in a hole now, and even if it’s one out of which it would be possible to dig, it seems miles deeper because of their inability to cobble together even one legitimate goal in two-plus games in this series, against a… Read More →
