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…

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…

349 Trade everybody!

Hey, I was busy at “the other job” yesterday but I spent a bunch of time here reading the comments, and especially enjoyed some of those about trading pretty much everybody because of a 2-5 start. Never mind that a lot of the excuses are fairly legit: The nonsensical preseason…

130 Rangers-Devils in review

Caption above should be: “Boy was that easy?” Thoughts: 1) Was it just me, or did this look like a preseason game? I mean, missing were Ryan Callahan, Rick Nash, Carl Hagelin, Michael Del Zotto, Marian Gabo … oh, wait, forget that one; Martin Brodeur, Patrik Elias, Ryane Clowe (shocker),…

Hockey
685 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Capitals

Game 6. Rangers at Capitals. Finally, a game against a team from the Leastern Conference and the Lesstropolitan Division. First meeting since Game 7 last spring. Ya boys play their sixth in a row on the road (12th counting preseason). This, by comparison, is Washington’s fifth home game of the…

Hockey
558 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Blues

Game 5. Rangers at Blues. Happy Columbus Day (kinda fitting considering all the Blue Jackets here and all the Rangers there)! The Rangers (1-3) play their fourth game in six nights (Yay, an 8 p.m. start!) and the fourth of nine on the road to start the season. They come…

702 Rangers-Mighty Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) I know it’s considered heresy to say this, but Henrik Lundqvist hasn’t looked good since the preseason began. 2) That third goal was a 2-on-2, no defensive mistake at all. Maybe it was deflected. Probably was. I don’t place blame on deflections. If it wasn’t deflected, it needs…

594 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Mighty Ducks

Game 4. Rangers at Mighty Ducks. ICYMI: Rick Nash was sent back to New York by the team and thus will not play tonight or Saturday in St. Louis with what is almost certainly another concussion. Jesper Fast takes his place in the lineup. Brad Richards switches back to center,…

270 Rangers-Kings in review

So Alain Vigneault has a win! And the Rangers won’t come home from this trip winless. Thoughts: 1) First and foremost, the Rangers sure look like a better team when Ryan Callahan is out there. And there’s hardly ever a game when you say, did Callahan do anything? Because he…

Hockey
392 Rangers-Coyotes in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers’ pace was much, much better than in past years, and will be a more enjoyable watch … if and only if it’s successful. And if they can maintain it against more gifted offensive teams. For those keeping score at home, it’s now 10 goals in seven…
