43 Caps-Rangers in review

Thoughts at the crack of noon: 1) I think it was good that John Tortorella was a little testy after this one. He should be. His team played well enough to win, and a couple of very soft plays (by some soft players in a few instances) cost them what…

10 More post-game quotes

Brandon Dubinsky: “We played the ideal game. Obviously we had a couple of breakdowns that ended up in the back of our net. Those are tough. I think we’ve still got to generate some more. I think we’re cycling, but we’re just not getting enough off those cycles. We’re cycling…

20 Post-game quotes

No MSG tonight, so no John Tortorella press conference. So you guys missed the first one this season where he was a little testy: Is this one particularly frustrating, when you get three goals from guys you normally don’t expect goals from, and have three one-goal leads? “Yeah. It is.…

43 Tortorella pre-game

First the minor news, quotes to follow: Rangers are down to 12 forwards with Boogaard playing sick, so everybody’s in up front, and Gilroy is prucha’d on defense. Gaborik continues to make progress. He thinks he may play by Sunday. Some speculation about Thursday. Tortorella said he’s not sure about…

160 Rangers-Devils in review (sort of)

I don’t have a lot to say, or much time to say it. Because, simply, I didn’t see the game last night, and because I couldn’t find a Rangers in 60 (only a Boomer and Carton in 60). 1) If you’re ever in that situation and can’t find a replay…

193 Rangers-Flys in review

1) Bottom line: The Rangers didn’t accomplish anything with their forecheck. Nothing at all. And the Flyers gave them nothing at all. The Rangers had 21 shots, and the post by Brandon Prust. It seemed like they had three until late in the third. 2) Jody Shelley is sure game,…

105 Rangers-Leaves tonight

I like these quick turnarounds. Of course, I didn’t have to catch a flight early this morning, then go through customs, and arrive at my hotel too early for check-in, etc. as I did in the good ol’ days. Below is an abbreviated version of tonight’s notes (to read more,…

24 Some shuffling at MSG:

Will have John Tortorella’s presser shortly. First, he said that Grachev will play, starting on right wing on a fourth line with Christensen on the left and White in the middle. (Markus Naslund, unofficially, is the only Ranger ever to wear No. 91, which Grachev will wear in his NHL…

95 Reason for optimism

Hey, sorry I’m late again. Had an unexpected situation here at Blog HQ. Nothing major. ——————– As I said yesterday, the three wins in four nights reinforced my belief that this team is better than last year, and should make the playoffs — no guarantee, obviously, with so many teams…

79 Devils-Rangers tonight

The Rangers recalled Jeremy Williams from Hartford today. I’m guessing he would fill in for Brandon Prust. Still awaiting word on Prust’s status after he was hit in the eye inadvertently by Gregory Campbell’s stick in Boston. He reportedly flew home with the team last night, and I was just…

188 Rangers-Leaves in review

Some thoughts: 1) Ryan Callahan didn’t score again. He did everything but score. He created chances, had chances, and did all those Callahan things he always does, too.His best game of the season. Easily. 2) Brandon Dubinsky’s played some good games since the season began. I thought this was his…

194 Avs-Rangers in review

If this is Life without Gaborik, the Rangers are in trouble. As I wrote in my column in The Journal News and on LoHud.com today, I don’t think that’s necessarily the case. But they’ve got to be better than that. And they should be better than that. 1) If you…

105 Islanders-Rangers in review

Almost crack of noon. Sorry kids. Been burning the candle at both ends (without the fun) and it finally caught up to me. Here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today. Some thoughts about the game yesterday. 1) You know I don’t sugarcoat things, so maybe you’ll respect…

120 Fedotenko makes it; signs for a year

The Ruslan Fedotenko tryout was successful. Fedotenko played well enough during the preseason — probably even better than the Rangers could have hoped — to earn a one-year contract reportedly worth $1 million. The Rangers remain under the cap by about $1M and have some maneuverability in their roster, which…
