318 My story on the Henrik Lundqvist re-signing

From The Journal News and LoHud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH — Funny, but just a few days earlier people were wondering what, exactly, the Rangers felt about their franchise player, Henrik Lundqvist, when his backup, Cam Talbot, played two games in a row. Turns out the Rangers feel just the…

162 Rangers-Jets in review; Live Chat today at noon

Don’t forget our Live Chat Tuesday at noon. Be there. Or else. Thoughts: 1) So much for the goalie controversy. I thought it was silly and premature. If you want to discuss the possibilities of, eventually, Cam Talbot being considered good enough to be a No. 1, and entertain the…

166 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) Men vs. Boys. I am not 100 percent convinced the Rangers lost this game because of the way they were manhandled by the Bruins, but they were manhandled, and I am pretty certain that any best-of-seven series against a team like that is going to look like the…

533 Rangers-Lightnings in review

Thoughts: 1) Wow, just too, too easy for the home team. Did a lot of guys on defense, and the guy in goal, have a bad game? Sure did. Not that there’s any shame or blame on a goalie in giving up three breakaway goals, but Henrik Lundqvist got beaten…

803 Rangers-Stars in review

Thoughts: 1) The goalkeeper. Where’s his get-away car? Because he committed a crime against the Stars, grand theft. Wow. This could have been over early, and would have been a dreadful way to lose, out of the gate like that, especially after losing three of four close ones. And, after…

556 Rangers-Kings in review

Thoughts: 1) Two 1-0 games, both good paced, one a little more physical, but worlds different, IMO. I thought the Rangers in Montreal controlled play for most of the night, with a few late surges by the Habs, but they defended well throughout. Granted, I think L.A. is a better…

223 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Thoughts: 1) Speed, speed, speed, speed, speed. 2) IMO, and I’ve said this before, Carl Hagelin has been the Rangers’ best player since he came back. There were three or four  or five remarkable plays in the first half of this game … A play when Justin Falk was trapped…

550 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Thoughts: 1) Remember when some of us were firing Alain Vigneault before the home opener? His system has now produced a lot of offensive chances, AND good defense (nine straight with two or fewer GA). Wonder where this team might be if not for the early injuries and the idiotic…

514 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) What a difference, or a slim difference, between winning and losing. Henrik Lundqvist made some huge saves on the early Pittsburgh power play, got help from a post, got Ryan Callahan to sweep one off the goal line for him, made another great save nine seconds after Brian…

441 Rangers-Ducks in review

Click here for my story on the game, from The Journal News and lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) I’m not going to try to convince anybody that the Rangers were or weren’t that bad, simply because it doesn’t matter. Even if they played great, you can’t make plays like they made in…

Game 12. Baby Buffaloes at Rangers. Happy Halloween! The Empire State Building is lit in orange tonight … but this time I don’t think it’s for Mr. Snider’s Flyers. Hard to believe more than an eighth of the season is gone already. Ya boys have won two of three. They…

505 It’s Go Time! … Canadiens at Rangers

Game 10. Canadiens at Rangers. Finally, a home game! After 15 in a row on the road. The renovated arena opens to a team that desperately needs to string together some good performances. Alain Vigneault, after six preseason and nine regular-season games on the road, makes his home debut as…
