211 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) This was an onions game. A big boy pants game. And a lot of Rangers showed up, played with onions, put their big boy pants on. A lot of them battled more than they had all season. Rick Nash was obviously the leader, right from the start, targeted,…

403 Another day of scoreboard watching

I’m guessing that for you guys, about the best part of this time of year is that pretty much every night, whether your team is playing or not, there are games that greatly interest you. A bunch of teams who have them will be burning one of their games-in-hand on…

441 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) Guess they don’t suck today. Or don’t suck as much. 2) Seriously, an unsightly win is much better than a near-perfect loss. The Rangers played so much better in their 1-0 loss Sunday than they played in Kanata Tuesday. The difference was in the goaltenders — the two…

527 Rangers-Sharks in review

Thoughts: 1) Going to get this right out of the way first. Video replay this season has just been an epic fail. EPIC. And these people who think shootouts and the new realignment are good ideas want to add more replay???? Seriously, if this is what video review comes up…

471 Sharks at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 69. Sharks at Rangers. Jumbo Soft Shell Shrimp Joe Thornton and his Sharknado gang have won five in a row and are 44-17-7 for 95 points, second in the West. Of course you probably remember Tomas (Hollerin’) Hertl dancing for four goals against ya boys in that 9-2 win…

Game review
506 Rangers-Jets in review

Thoughts: 1) Henrik Lundqvist ties Mike Richter’s franchise record of 301 career wins. He will probably break it in the next seven-plus years. Seriously, this was the kind of win Richter (and Lundqvist) appreciated. One where you had to battle, to hang in, to have a short memory and worry…

431 Rangers at Wilds … It’s Go Time!

Game 67. Rangers at Wilds. The Rangers come off a shameful non-effort in Carolina Tuesday, a game their top six forwards, among others, mailed in. Cam Talbot starts in goal, his first since he beat Chicago at MSG in the first game after the Olympic break. Talbot is 11-5, 1.75.…

140 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) Holy shishkebob. I’ve been watching NHL games for a long time, and I’ve watched a lot of bad games by bad teams and good teams and I’ve learned this: A classic indication of a team taking a team lightly, of showing an opponent zero respect, is playing Harlem…

483 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) The formula with this team is pretty simple, as it is with any team. We’ve seen good and bad from the Rangers through 65 games now. When they’ve been good, their top skill players have played well, their goaltenders have been sharp and they’ve defended. That has to…
