50 Tortorella pre-game

First the news, followed by quotes in a little bit: Same lineup, unless one of the dinged-up guys (presumably Fedotenko, but not definitely) can’t play. As of now, John Tortorella expects everybody to play, and Newbury was brought up for “precautionary” reasons. Another item, which has been mis-reported (and then…

134 Rangers-Flys in review

Has there been a game this season that better defined these Rangers, the It’s Just Paingers? In a game, let’s face it, they pretty much had to win, they played with all those characteristics we’ve seen most of the year: The shot blocking, the body checks, the PK, the struggle…

202 Sabres-Rangers in review

John Tortorella was not happy after this one, and who could blame him? Because while the effort wasn’t good enough, as he put it, for Game 77, neither was the concentration. I mean, there’s a kid goalie thrown in under emergency circumstances, and yet the Rangers insisted on passing up…

399 Rangers-Panthers in review

OK, it was unwatchable. And the Garden crowd was dreadfully quiet — that’s what happens when people buy season tickets and have to sell a lot of them because of the cost, and then cherry-pick which games they’ll attend; but also when the Garden insists on making hockey games in…

225 Rangers-Islanders in review

I’ll link later to my game story … which was about how there’s always these goofy swings in Rangers-Isles games, and how the Rangers survived the lows by going back to basics — down low, straight-ahead play. They do it after bad periods. They do it after bad games (see:…

202 Wild-Rangers in review … by guest blogger Lloyd Braun

Serenity Now… 1) The power play is enough to make a man crazy (i’m not crazy). 2) I always thought that the “jam” was a cop-out phrase from Torts, for playing well vs. not playing well, but in the first period I became a convert to the “jam.” In the NHL if you can hold…

532 It’s Go Time!

Marc Staal will be a gametime decision, based on how he feels in warmups. You probably know his decision by now, via twitter, tweeter, tooter, or the MSG pregame show. Fedotenko is back in. So here are the probable lines according to our sources (the guys who are actually doing…

194 Fedotenko, Staal return; Newbury assigned to Whale

So it looks as if Marc Staal and Ruslan Fedotenko will both be in the lineup tonight. That likely means a prucha for Steve Eminger. And Kris Newbury was sent to the Whale. PS, happy 43rd Mr. Brian Leetch! Here’s the announcement on Newbury, from the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS…

494 It’s Go Time!

Big, big one. I’m not ready to call any game a must-win with 36 points still on the table. But this could be a huge win or a very discouraging loss against a Buffalo team five points behind, with three games in hand. Marc Staal, who suffered a setback Monday,…

25 Staal suffers setback

According to Andrew Gross’s Ranger Rants blog, Marc Staal suffered a setback — which might be minor — when he left practice early Monday. You can read all about that, and other stuff from John Tortorella’s pre-game press conference, here. That includes the “Is Glen coaching?” remark about Sather saying…

511 It’s Go Time!

Before we get to the game, youse should know I’m on a banning rampage. And if some of you clowns keep stepping out of line, you will be banned … and I might as well tell you that I will enjoy doing it. OK? Update on Del Zotto. He is…

32 Tortorella pre-game

John Tortorella: On what he thinks of McCabe: “Hasn’t played yet.” On what he knows and expects: “Well, we all … veteran guy. He’s got the big shot on the power play. And I think it helps us, at this time of year, with our pairs, especially with Marc being…

Hockey
35 Tortorella, McCabe pre-game

Will have quotes shortly … but here’s the news. McCabe will play with Eminger and wear No. 28, and play on the power play. Duh. Fedotenko is out, so Newbury will play. Del Zotto is still here, even though the Rangers made a paper transaction to send him to the…

26 Lightnings at Rangers today

It’s a 1 p.m. matinee as the Rangers play the final game of February, the final game before tomorrow’s trade deadline, and the first of a three-game homestand. Bryan McCabe is expected to make his Rangers debut. Marc Staal is expected to miss his second straight game. Ruslan Fedotenko is…

141 Looks like McCabe’s coming; Stepan not suspended

Here’s a tweet from Nick Kypreos — former Ranger (first off the bench, prematurely, to celebrate the Cup; first to kiss the Cup). Seriously, he’s pretty plugged in. I put a lot of credence in this: #NHL news. Look for #Panthers Bryan McCabe to be traded to the #Rangers as…

67 No review today (updated)

Sorry. I didn’t see a minute of the game. Heard some of it on the radio while I was at a local playoff semifinal (an OT game that didn’t start nearly on time). Then I sat down at 1 a.m. to watch the replay, and instead they were showing a…

604 It’s Go Time!

No Marc Staal (knee), so Ryan McDonagh slides into the first pair with Dan Girardi and faces the fun task for a youngster: facing Alex Ovechkin (=Monster) every shift. Maybe Dubinsky can fight him again and get him off the ice for five minutes. Lundqvist is in goal. Eminger is…

251 Devils-Rangers in review

I’m not going to fake it, as if I saw the whole game. Because I didn’t. I could have watched the whole replay, but, geez, the Devils sure make it difficult to do that. But they sure are effective playing that way. So I caught the first period of the…
