264 Rangers-Wilds in review

Happy Festivus! We will begin with the airing of grievances, followed by the feats of strength. Thoughts: 1) That was one of the Rangers’ best games of the season, and the second was one of the best periods of the season, and the third wasn’t too far behind. Why? Because…

378 Rangers-Islanders in review

Thoughts: 1) The homestand to hell. At some point, if not soon then later, the Rangers will rue the points they hacked up on this nine-gamer, whether it be the points that make them fight for their lives the final days of the season or the points that keep them…

314 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) As you know, I completely agree with what Brad Richards said post-game. That you don’t judge how a team played in a hockey game based on the coin-flip that is the skills competition. Because, as you know, I always maintain that it’s not part of the hockey game,…

1038 Rangers-Flames in review

Thoughts: 1) Funny how the shootout changes everything. A stupid breakaway contest can warp your appreciation, or lack thereof, for what went on in this game, which sure wasn’t great, and sure wasn’t against a great opponent. Though, to be honest, I thought the Rangers did get better as this…

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

Game 33. Blue Jackets at Rangers. The reunion of the former Rangers and former Blue Jackets is the story line, but tonight’s game is really about the Rangers’ need for a victory, and having to get it with a depleted lineup. Big, tough 2010 first-round draft pick Dylan McIlrath…

252 Rangers-Predators in review; Live Chat at noon

Another reminder: We will have a Live Chat today at noon. On the ledge. Be there. Or else. Should be entertaining. Thoughts: 1) They are boring. They are soft. They are mistake prone. And they are losing players almost every night. They don’t defend very well, and they can’t score.…

399 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) Hey, for crying out loud, you can’t expect them to score more than one against Philipp Grubauer. Did I spell that correctly? Too lazy to care. But that’s kinda the point. 2) I mentioned it a little while back, during that five-game road trip, and I wasn’t alone…

183 Rangers-Baby Buffaloes in review

Thoughts: 1) Henrik Lundqvist. Remember that goalie controversy? And by the way, this talk about how he’s earning that new contract now … well, that new contract starts next season and I think he gets the signing bonus July 1. So he’s just getting by with the old contract right…

166 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) Men vs. Boys. I am not 100 percent convinced the Rangers lost this game because of the way they were manhandled by the Bruins, but they were manhandled, and I am pretty certain that any best-of-seven series against a team like that is going to look like the…

Hockey
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…

Hockey
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…

Hockey
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…
