[polldaddy poll=9328721 align=”left”] Game 63. Blue Jackets at Rangers. The trade deadline is gone, and the Rangers’ debut their new toy, Eric Staal — who has never, at any level, played on the same team as his brother Marc. Eric will wear No. 12, and Marc gets an M…

Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) I guess the biggest thing you take from this game is the noticeable return of Mats Zuccarello. He had the nice little pass on Brady Skjei’s goal. Had a goal and an assist in the first…

665 Game 7: Lightning at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

[polldaddy poll=8900339 align=”left”] Game 7. Lightning at Rangers. As I mentioned thrice during the Washington series and prior to Game 6 in this series, this could be our final “It’s Go Time!” of the season. I hope not because this has kind of been a crazy place these last…

932 Game 6: Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

[polldaddy poll=8894097 align=”left”] Game 6. Rangers at Lightning. I think I may have mentioned during the Washington series once or twice, or thrice, that this could be the final “It’s Go Time!” of the season. I think it’s a coin-flip game, and I predicted 1-1 after two, 2-2 after…

732 Game 4: Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

[polldaddy poll=8887216 align=”left”] Game 4. Rangers at Lightning. Pretty close to a must-win for ya boys. Not technically, but, you know. Going down 3-1 again and coming back against this explosive team probably isn’t happening. As Marc Staal said, they will need to play their best game of the…

733 Game 3: Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

[polldaddy poll=8882850 align=”left”] Game 3. Rangers at Lightning. A big-boy pants game for the Rangers at the Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes, after they spit the bit in Game 2 — a game in which I didn’t think the Lighting was terrific either, but the Rangers messed…

792 Game 7: Capitals at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

[polldaddy poll=8864097 align=”left”] Game 7. Capitals at Rangers. Everything that can be said has been said, along with some of the dumb stuff that didn’t need to be said or shouldn’t have been said (Alex Ovechkin basically calling the Rangers’ defensemen a bunch of chickens, between “All series, baby,…

[polldaddy poll=8849039 align=”left”] Game 4. Rangers at Capitals. Must win? Nope. Not yet. Almost-must-win? Yup. I think these Rangers have shown over most of the last four years that they don’t, as you guys say, panic at the disco — whatever that means — and that they do generally…
