267 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) Although the game was hideous at times, and I thought early on the Rangers didn’t take care of the puck nearly well enough — especially the line that eventually created the game-winning goal — this was a pretty good win. It was one of those whatever-it-takes games you…

631 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

Thoughts: 1) Best win of the season for the Rangers, who are now two over NHL-.500 for the first time this season? Maybe for several reasons, one of them being that it came against the defending Stanley Cup champs who were 15-2-6 at home this season. But for many other…

492 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Thoughts: 1) The Leafs — is that the same team that played in the Winter Classic? — really put up zero resistance, and the Rangers sure appear to love playing against them. The Rangers, a team that can play with anybody if allowed to skate, allowed to use their speed,…

376 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) This is not an excuse. Just a fact. The Pittsburgh Penguins are helmets and shoulder pads better than the rest of the East. They played almost the entire month of December with their JV on the ice and ran away and hid. They could play the entire second…

323 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) I know you guys don’t want to hear the glass-half-full stuff, so I’ll just blurt it out and get it over with. I didn’t think the Rangers were outplayed at all, especially at 5-on-5, in this game. I thought they defended pretty well and a lot of guys…

303 Boxing Day … and then the rest of the season

Just want to throw this out there for discussion, because I’m a little curious. Now, I know — or have been taught — that you guys can kinda go hot and cold about your team, game to game, period to period, shot to shot. And cold was the prevailing temperature…
