Thoughts: 1) 40-15-6, 86 points with a quarter of a season left. You kiddin’ me? 2) Henrik Lundqvist. Seven straight seasons of 30 wins. Forty-three career shutouts. Eight this season; 10-2-0 with a 1.24 goals against average, .952 save percentage and four shutouts in his last 12 games. A record…

John Tortorella before last night’s game: I think we’ve got a good group that’s struggling a bit with some of the details of our game. But it’s Game 60 and we’re talking about these struggles. I’m pretty happy that it’s taken this long to maybe talk about this stuff here.…

First, Michael Del Zotto is reportedly OK after crashing his right hip into the goalpost in the third period. John Tortorella: Ryan Callahan (Part 1) (the first thing he said was that he had to put the Hat on before the interview because he got in trouble for not putting…

I’m not going to attempt to talk some of you off the ledge. You’re nuts if you are in a panic over this little slide here. And if I knew a bookie, I’d put down a bet that the Rangers, because of who they are this year, will respond in…

466 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) On the Michael Del Zotto non-goal … I understand that the replay everybody saw on TV and in MSG was with the unofficial scoreboard clock. The NHL situation room in Toronto and/or the replay judge (John Damante in this case) in the arena, has the actual official clock burned…

 Thoughts: 1) How the byfuglien are the Byfuglien-less Blackhawks where they are? … and how did they lose nine in a row? … Not that they were great in this game. They sure weren’t. They got a bunch of gifts in the first period, the benefit of some calls, a…

Thanks, everybody, for participating in our longest chat ever. I know that last night’s game was stolen by Mr. Lundqvist. But The Captain might have had something to do with it. In fact, six of the first nine photos posted by the Associated Press had Ryan Callahan in them. And…

Thoughts: 1) This sure wasn’t the most exciting game ever played. But you know what? Ya boys don’t mind that either. Want to grind? Want to make it a battle for chances? Fine with them. Afterwards, John Tortorella said this is the type of game the Rangers expect to have…

100 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) So the Flyers are frustrated, losing seven in a row, including all five this year, to the Best Team in the East? Well, maybe they should stop playing all those idiots and understand that the Rangers not only won’t be intimidated, but they’ll be happy to play that…

I don’t know what you guys thought about the game, but I sure thought it was a fun game to watch, even if it took the Garden crowd 50 minutes to get into it. The second and third periods were pretty wild. Thoughts: 1) Not to be one of those…

14 Post-game interviews

No update on Ruslan Fedotenko, but the Rangers were not happy about Dominic Moore’s shoulder-to-head hit in retaliation for Fedotenko clobbering him along the wall. John Tortorella wouldn’t comment on it, other than to say that that his team shouldn’t be happy about it. Here’s the post-game stuff. John Tortorella:…

197 Rangers-Flyers in review

I truly believe that these four wins over the Flyers won’t mean jack-squat if the Rangers wind up in a playoff series against them. It doesn’t work that way. But I also truly believe that the Rangers are better. And here’s the thing. The Flyers have more skill. The Rangers…

What can you do? The Rangers sure have gotten their share of last-minute wins this year, and a few bounces along the way. This one was one horrible bounce, then a puck sliding across the goal line, then one of those unfortunate breakaway contests they sometimes hold after the hockey…

279 Captain Callahan: The identity of the Rangers

Here’s a column I wrote for The Journal News and LoHud.com yesterday: **************************** The last time the Rangers played a hockey game with somebody other than Ryan Callahan as their captain, Callahan was on crutches. He was on crutches because, in the biggest game of 2010-11, Game 80 of 82,…

Hockey Gods. John Tortorella referenced the Hockey Gods the one night this week, when Marian Gaborik was incorrectly called for a double-minor penalty when one opponent’s stick. and not Gaborik’s, hit the face of another opponent. And the Rangers, rightly, killed the penalties. Tortorella said the Hockey Gods have a…
