125 Rangers-Panthers in review

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah! Thoughts: 1) Alain Vigneault made an off-the-cuff remark about the old saying, “You never critique a victory.” Mike Keenan said that all the time … but they will then dissect it, because they must, because that’s what they do. And because coaches, good coaches, know…

533 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) Wow, just too, too easy for the home team. Did a lot of guys on defense, and the guy in goal, have a bad game? Sure did. Not that there’s any shame or blame on a goalie in giving up three breakaway goals, but Henrik Lundqvist got beaten…

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…

Hockey
223 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Speed, speed, speed, speed, speed. 2) IMO, and I’ve said this before, Carl Hagelin has been the Rangers’ best player since he came back. There were three or four  or five remarkable plays in the first half of this game … A play when Justin Falk was trapped…

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…

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…

450 It’s Go Time! … Devils at Rangers

Game 18. Devils at Rangers. Change in plans: We will do a Live Chat Thursday at noon, not Wednesday. Be there. Ya boys have won three in a row and six of seven. The Devils are 2-0-1 in their last three and 4-2-2 in eight. It’ll be Henrik Lundqvist…

Hockey
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…

Hockey
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…

Hockey
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…

1052 It’s Go Time! … Penguins at Rangers

Game 15. Penguins at Rangers. First of all, congrats to our second ticket contest winner, What the HECK, who was also our first ticket contest winner, both times correctly picking a 2-1 Rangers loss. Ya boys finish a four-game homestand with the first meeting of the season against the NBC…

317 It’s Go Time! … Baby Buffaloes at Rangers

Game 12. Baby Buffaloes at Rangers. Happy Halloween! The Empire State Building is lit in orange tonight … but this time I don’t think it’s for Mr. Snider’s Flyers. Hard to believe more than an eighth of the season is gone already. Ya boys have won two of three. They…

505 It’s Go Time! … Canadiens at Rangers

Game 10. Canadiens at Rangers. Finally, a home game! After 15 in a row on the road. The renovated arena opens to a team that desperately needs to string together some good performances. Alain Vigneault, after six preseason and nine regular-season games on the road, makes his home debut as…
