378 Three words sum up the season so far

Here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today: NEW YORK — It is the quote of the season for the Rangers, because it is everything they are about. Brandon Prust, the tough-as-shoe-leather winger, had been playing with at least two bad injuries — a bum shoulder and a…

140 Rangers-Caps in review

Six days ago, we were sitting in the press conference room and John Tortorella was talking about losing Brandon Dubinsky, on top of losing all these other players including Ryan Callahan, and during the game that night the Rangers would also lose Ruslan Fedotenko. And that was the first game…

74 Rangers-Leaves in review

Don’t put too much stock in the score, OK? There was some lousy goaltending and lousy play by the lousy visiting team and it got out of hand in a hurry. That said, there were a lot of positives, including the PK early, then the PP, mostly Gaborik getting going…

11 Tortorella post-game

John Tortorella: “I don’t think there’s any one best thing. Obviously, Gabby getting untracked in a game here hopefully will help his confidence. Our penalty killing I thought was the biggest point early in the game. It’s something we didn’t want to do — we talked about that before the…

28 Post-game quotes and stuff

First, you’ve heard the news already, probably: Ruslan Fedotenko’s out 2-4 weeks with a second-degree sprain of the a.c. joint in his left shoulder. So not only is Chad Kolarik coming up from Connecticut (AHL), but so is Brodie Dupont. Quotes to follow shortly. —————- Henrik Lundqvist said he was…

235 Rangers-Canucks in review

This is some nice little run here by your New York Rangers. OK, they lost to Montreal, and didn’t play their usual grind-it-out game that night. Imagine if they had. Imagine what this would-be five-game winning streak might look like? So now the Rangers have Western pelts of Vancouver, Dallas,…

John Tortorella: Update on Boogaard: “Nope. We’re trying to stimulate him, trying to get him moving around, but he still doesn’t feel well. Can he imagine getting him back? “Very difficult. It would be very difficult (both to guess when, or to actually get him back). Both. It’s something we…

184 Canucks at Rangers tonight

And, no, it’s not Game 7. (… I hit PUBLISH accidentally when I meant to schedule this to be published in the morning, and I decided, since some of you saw it already, that I’d just leave it up. So there won’t be a post in the morning, OK?) So…

253 Canadiens-Rangers in review

Is it possible? Can the Rangers miss Michal Rozsival that much? Maybe it was a bit surprising that the Rangers were so comfortable going up and down the ice with the speedy Canadiens early on, but then again, maybe that got them away from their grinding game a bit. Because,…

132 Stars-Rangers in review

How many times, in how many ways, can we keep saying the same things about this Rangers team and the way it gets points, especially tough points, especially on the road? That’s some kind of win, and in the old days that would have been some kind of tie. Thoughts:…

121 Fedotenko ready to go

That’s the main news out of practice today, that Ruslan Fedotenko made it through a full practice with his bruised hand, and will play tomorrow. Will have more info and some quotes in a bit. John Tortorella: On Fedotenko. “He’s a big part of our team. He’s much better today…

139 Panthers-Rangers in review

This one was bad. The Rangers played a stinker. Again, you can’t argue with the effort, but there were errors in all three zones. So home they go with one goal and a single point in two games in Florida. Thoughts: 1) This may have been the worst game of…

272 The Captain is back

We expect Chris Drury to play tomorrow in Pittsburgh, and I’m sure those guys who are at practice today will be talking to the captain about his return. But I want to get the discussion going ahead of the pack. Here’s my take: I know he’s not the most popular…

236 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) I know it was a little thing, but I thought it was an important piece of the game. With 4.8 seconds left in the first, Rangers up 1-0, Lundqvist was forced to cover a puck in the crease. Faceoff in the right dot. Ovechkin in the trigger position…

Hockey
21 Jackets-Rangers in review

Thoughts: 1) That was one of the rare ones this season where the Rangers did almost everything they planned to do, and still lost. 2) I am not one to normally give the other goalie credit. I think too often that’s an excuse. Too often a goalie looks good because…

148 Avery climbs all-star vote

From the “credit where credit is due” department, The New York Rangers Blog is the driving force behind the Sean Avery write-in (e-ballot box stuffing) campaign, and Avery is up to 20th among forwards with, at last count, some 64,000 type-in votes. That’s not going to be enough, not when…

John Tortorella: On getting Gaborik back: “I think he can make a big offensive play. Like I said the other night, we’re a play, maybe a defensive play, an offensive play, a big play from winning a game for us. We didn’t get it done. I think Gabby’s going to…
