281 Rangers-Senators in review

Thoughts: 1) Derek Stepan. Breakout game? I don’t know. He had that hat trick Nov. 2 after going his first 12 without a goal, then scored four in his next 36 games, including none in the last 13. And while I certainly don’t judge him solely on goals, he needs…

426 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) Ben Bishop. Holy shishkebob, does this guy own the Rangers? He allowed one goal and his goals against average went up and save percentage went down. He came in at 0.89 with a .970 save percentage in four starts. He’s now 5-0 with two shutouts against the Rangers.…

542 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) Well, that was a pretty good start. Maybe the Flyers were thrown off by that rouse-‘em-up battle song, “Oh you look so beautiful tonight” they play when the teams enter the rink. 2) Seriously, I want to get to the Daniel Carcillo topic and all in a minute,…

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…

Game review
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…

609 It’s Go Time! … Blue Jackets at Rangers

Game 44. Blue Jackets at Rangers. The Rangers come off (yet another) roller coaster of a road trip in which they went 3-2. They have won five of their last seven overall and their last two at home. The Rangers are a game over NHL-.500 for the eighth time…

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…

279 Rangers-Panthers in review … Happy New Year!

Thoughts: 1) Happy New Year! Whether 2013 was good, great, bad or horrible for you, here’s hoping that 2014 will be better. And the dawn of 2014 means one thing: Honeymooners Marathon!! It also means Winter Classic today at the Big House, and after the game, the naming of the…

514 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) Henrik Lundqvist. I thought he had no chance on the first goal, none on the third. I thought the second was stoppable, that it was a big rebound (it was) and that he went down early and got beat high glove. But I watched it a few times.…

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…

583 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas Eve! Thoughts: 1) The non-existent quick whistle. How is that play not blown dead? I mean, there are so many layers to this onion. How does the referee tell Brad Richards, according to Alain Vigneault, that if the puck didn’t go in on the…
