524 It’s Go Time! … Super Bowl XLVIII edition

Welcome to the annual Rangers Report Super Bowl party — the best place to watch the game (also the cheapest). The chicken wings, little hot dogs in blankets, and beers are in the back. Help yourself. Just so you know, we’ve nailed the exact final score for, like, four or…

292 Super Sunday, but not so super for Ryan Callahan

First a couple of things: As always, we’ll have our own Super Bowl Party right here on Rangers Report. Anybody who wants to watch the game together, there will be a special “It’s Go Time!” post half an hour or so before kickoff. Bring some chicken wings, little hot dogs…

89 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) The whole Ryan Callahan situation threw a cloud over the game, IMO. And will continue to hover over whatever the Rangers do from now until the March 5 trade deadline, or perhaps the Olympic-break roster freeze Feb. 7. If they think they won’t be able to re-sign Callahan,…

519 Rangers-Islanders in review

(Apologies … tech problems overnight prevented me from including photos in the review. Dammit). Thoughts: 1) I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but the trading deadline is closing in, with the two and a half weeks roster freeze over the Olympic break, and the Rangers…

36 A couple of charitable endeavors for great causes:

I’m headed to Yankee Stadium, where the Devils and Rangers are practicing today before tomorrow’s Stadium Series game. Hope to have audio and video from there later.

Game review
339 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) The Blues obviously got the memo from Coach Ken Hitchcock, or maybe they figured it out themselves. They were embarrassed by the Devils two nights earlier, and as we all knew, they would be a lot better at the Garden. Much, much, much tighter. Nothing that we didn’t…

Game review
303 Rangers-Islanders in review (updated)

Thoughts: 1) It really is remarkable how much more the Devils and Islanders have seemed to want the games against the Rangers than the Rangers have. Part of it is that the Rangers don’t treat them as top rivals anymore. They don’t. The Islanders certainly do. You can only imagine…

524 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Semantics, maybe. But to me, it’s a streak when you win a bunch of games. It’s a roll when the wins are impressive and complete, when the performance goes top to bottom, and when the best, most important players are playing like the best, most important players. So…
