11 Rangers at Islanders tonight (8 p.m.) … pre-game notes

ICYMI, Emerson Etem’s under the weather so the Rangers recalled Tanner Glass from Hartford (AHL) today. Glass will play that fourth-line right wing role vs. the Islanders.

Bruins 4, Rangers 3. Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) You can put aside this game, and even the last one, as awful as they were — a poor game by the coaching staff, goalie, top line, second line, entire panicky defense…

Game 23. Rangers at Bruins. The Rangers come off that woeful loss to Montreal Wednesday, where they out-Corsied the Canadiens bus somehow still lost. They are 2-2 in their last four after a nine-game winning streak. Still they are 16-4-2 for the season, and 13-2-2 in their last 17…

18 Rangers at Bruins today (1 p.m.) … pre-game notes

FYI, it looks like Emerson Etem and Dylan McIlrath will go back into the lineup, in place of Viktor Stalberg and Dan Boyle (who isn’t playing back-to-backs, at least for the immediate future). It sure can’t hurt to have McIlrath’s size in the lineup against the Bruins, and Zacwagon Rinaldo.…

The 14-2-2 Rangers look for a franchise-record-tying 10th win in a row Thursday in Tampa Sir Isaac Newton might not like the Rangers chances in the upcoming weeks or months. “What goes up,” he purportedly said, “must come down.” National Hockey League gravity gets every team at some point. Every…
