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…

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…

441 Rangers-Ducks in review

Click here for my story on the game, from The Journal News and lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) I’m not going to try to convince anybody that the Rangers were or weren’t that bad, simply because it doesn’t matter. Even if they played great, you can’t make plays like they made in…

315 Rangers-Baby Buffaloes in review

Thoughts: 1) Yeah, so they beat a bad team. That was a popular theme last night. But those are games you need to win, and earlier the Rangers weren’t winning them, so stop whining, take the win, move on. The Rangers played well. Could they have scored more? Yeah. Did…
