The Rangers held serve. That’s all they did and that’s all they needed to do. They controlled their own destiny going into the night – a night in which all the teams they needed to lose, naturally, won – and with their 6-1 win over the awful Panthers, they still… Read More →

Another great night for the Rangers. A woeful loss to a bad team in Philadelphia, and all the teams around them in the playoff race – Islanders, Ottawa and Winnipeg – won. The good news, if there is any, is that the Rangers are still in eighth based on a… Read More →
Still not completely sure what to make of the Rangers’ 1-0 win over the Islanders Saturday night. The Rangers didn’t play great. They didn’t play lousy. But it sure as heck was fun to watch, and the atmosphere in that old, dilapidated building was pretty cool and very loud. Thoughts:... Read More →

Photo by Getty Images. Some good stuff post-game. Henrik Lundqvist said goalie coach Benoit Allaire was telling him all day to get a shutout; and that he was yelling for somebody to get back when he saw Girardi go in deep in overtime. John Tortorella said Nassau Coliseum “sucks” and… Read More →

Well, you guys really don’t need me to break down that 4-3 loss in T.O. because it was pretty self-explanatory. Breakdowns, breakdowns, breakdowns. Big, glaring, smelly defensive breakdowns. One on each of the four Toronto goals. Thoughts: 1) Woe Canada. Your boys have not won in Canada this season. How… Read More →
Funny how perception works. The Rangers romped over Pittsburgh 6-1 Wednesday. Then they lost in a post-game tiddly-winks contest, 2-1, in Pittsburgh on Friday. Then they beat Carolina 4-1 last night. And yet I would argue that the best game that they played was the loss. Honestly, I think it… Read More →
The Rangers are 3-0-1 in their last four after beating the Hurricanes 4-1 Saturday night in Raleigh. With 10 games remaining in the regular season, they are in seventh place, but four points behind fifth-place Toronto. The Rangers play the Maple Leaves back to back, Monday in Toronto and Wednesday… Read More →
The Rangers have a rematch with the Penguins tonight, 7 p.m. in Pittsburgh, following their 6-1 win at the Garden on Wednesday. They start a three-game road trip, which continues Saturday in Carolina and Monday in Toronto. Pregame notes courtesy of the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS at PITTSBURGH PENGUINS Friday,... Read More →
Thoughts: 1) This was a really big win, or more exactly a game the Rangers really couldn’t afford to lose. Could have been a death blow, really. Now if they even get one point out of the home-and-home with the NHL Penguins, then beat Carolina, they’ll be in decent shape…. Read More →

Thoughts: 1) Bleak, bleaker, bleakest? With Winnipeg coming for a critical game Monday, the trade deadline Wednesday and then a home-and-home with Pittsburgh, this could get worse before it gets better. Seriously. 2) That said, I don’t think there’s a move or a player available, or a single need that… Read More →
REMINDER: Live Chat Friday at noon. Be there. Should be, um, interesting. Thoughts: 1) At 0-0, it was a decent road game. At 1-0 a bunch of you guys said it was over and I didn’t believe you. But, holy cow. As it transpired, could it have gotten any worse?... Read More →
Thoughts: 1) Not going to rail about the shootout, but with an all intra-conference schedule and a 48-game season, three-point games, and points for losing hockey games, are going to greatly impact the standings. There are piles of three-point games every night. And if you’re not in the party, getting… Read More →
… and one that didn’t make the recorder, from Brad Richards: “I don’t have much to say … confused and lost.” John Tortorella: Henrik Lundqvist: Marian Gaborik: Ryan Callahan: Dan Girardi: Ryan McDonagh:
