803 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) The goalkeeper. Where’s his get-away car? Because he committed a crime against the Stars, grand theft. Wow. This could have been over early, and would have been a dreadful way to lose, out of the gate like that, especially after losing three of four close ones. And, after…

171 Rangers-Bruins in review … Live Chat today at noon

Reminder: We’ll do a Live Chat today at noon. For those with mobile devices, you can join us from the ledge. Thoughts: 1) Boy, oh boy, sometimes you laugh at the rhetoric … over the years, how many times have we heard the Rangers talking about how they’d played well…

390 It’s Go Time! … Kings at Rangers

Game 20. Kings at Rangers. Ya boys look to sweep the Kings in the season series. The Rangers have won four of five and seven of nine. They play the second of three in four nights (Boston in town Tuesday) before a five-game road trip. Henrik Lundqvist is back…

308 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Canadiens (Les Habs)

Game 19. Rangers at Canadiens. Ya boys lost a three-game winning streak on Tuesday. They have won six of eight and seven of 10, as they begin a stretch of nine games in 15 days to close out November. That stretch begins with back-to-backs (Los Angeles at the Garden…

254 Who’s No. 1? No. 4, No. 9, No. 66 or No. 99?

I don’t normally pump a TV show or a book signing, but since Bobby Orr is really making the rounds with his book, and since the Rangers have a few days between games here, I thought this would be a good topic of conversation. In my mind, the best players…

205 Rangers-Devils in review

First, a change in plans: The Live Chat will now be Thursday at noon, not Wednesday as originally planned. Be there. Or else. Click here for my game story from The Journal News and Lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) I don’t disagree that the second goal, with 46.1 seconds left in the…

194 Devils at Rangers tonight (7 p.m.) … pre-game notes

First this: We’re planning a Live Chat Wednesday at noon. Can everybody make it? Be there. Also this: Today is 11-12-13. Wooooooo. You won’t see that for another 100 years (and probably multiple Rangers Cups — maybe). Pre-game notes courtesy of the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS vs. NEW JERSEY DEVILS…

471 Rangers-Panthers in review

Happy Veterans Day. Thoughts: 1) J.T. Miller had jump right from his first shift. That was a pretty cool play on the 1-0 goal. Ryan McDonagh just grows every day in the offensive zone, and Chris Kreider is making plays he didn’t even make in that playoff coming-out party (I…

429 It’s Go Time! … Panthers at Rangers

Game 17. Panthers at Rangers. Panthers with a new coaching staff (0-1) have lost eight in a row and are 3-10-4 (but not the worst team in the East). The 8-8 Rangers have won two in a row, five of six, and six of eight. They have allowed two…

323 Panthers come to town tomorrow with a new coaching staff

In case you missed it, the sorry Florida Panthers made sweeping changes to their coaching staff Friday. So the Cats (3-9-4 and winless in their last seven) will/should be all fired up coming to the Garden tomorrow to play the streaking Rangers. Head coach Kevin Dineen and assistants Craig Ramsay…

550 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) Remember when some of us were firing Alain Vigneault before the home opener? His system has now produced a lot of offensive chances, AND good defense (nine straight with two or fewer GA). Wonder where this team might be if not for the early injuries and the idiotic…

Hockey
514 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) What a difference, or a slim difference, between winning and losing. Henrik Lundqvist made some huge saves on the early Pittsburgh power play, got help from a post, got Ryan Callahan to sweep one off the goal line for him, made another great save nine seconds after Brian…
