226 Rangers-Capitals getting closer … sort of …

I’m headed over to this mini-training camp the Rangers are forced to endure because the NHL scheduled their four days off between games. Will have audio interviews (fingers crossed, new audio system which works on your phone), possibly some video, definitely some reports (Twitter: @RangersReport). Later today I will put…

373 The clincher: Rangers-Hurricanes in review

See? I told all y’all that the Rangers would make the playoffs. (I won’t say how much doubt I’ve had these last three nights, though). And I must add that the last two games the Rangers – as always whenever they have struggled over the years – looked like a…

What an opportunity the Rangers let get away in Sunrise, Fla. Beat the worst team in hockey, whether in regulation, overtime or the tiddly-winks contest, and the Rangers would have clinched a playoff spot and jumped over the Islanders into the sixth seed. They should thank their lucky stars that…

282 And down the stretch they come …

Happy Tax Day. Which is like saying Happy Colonoscopy Day. Anyway, today there are just 13 days left in this hacked-off, Bettmaned 48-game, 99-day joke of a season. Which is a good time to take a look at the race for the final few playoff spots in the mediocre Eastern…

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:…

411 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

I’m not going to go nutso about the shootout today, because I’ve done it to death … and will do it again later on, no doubt, about how stupid it is that the playoff fate of teams, not to mention the jobs of GMs, coaches and players are decided in…

392 Rangers-Maple Leaves in review

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…

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…

680 Rangers-Jets in review

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.…
