386 Hurricanes at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

Game 5. Hurricanes at Rangers. Panic time? Not yet. After tonight’s game? Yes, definitely. The Rangers have lost three in a row, each uglier than the one before it, allowing 17 goals. In the last two, against Toronto and the Islanders, the Rangers just collapsed at the first sign…

Happy Columbus Day. Click here for a photo gallery that is far better than that game deserved, from lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) This one was a top-to-bottomer. Actually, a couple of guys played well. But the big guys, Henrik Lundqvist, Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi … and many others? P.U. 2) If…

87 Rangers-Blue Jackets in review

Click here to see another great photo gallery from last night’s game, at lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) I thought Columbus Day was Monday, not Saturday. The Blue Jackets are a good team, and they play really hard and come at you and all that. Given. But the Rangers probably lose that…

739 Rangers at Blues … It’s Go Time!

Game 1. Rangers at Blues. Ya boys set out to duplicate and surpass what they did last season. Tall task. But they are as good or better than they were last year, theoretically anyway. They leap right back onto the horse with three games in four nights, a visit…

92 Captain Ryan McDonagh: The obvious choice

Here’s my column from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – The choice had been pretty obvious since, well, since the Rangers’ captaincy went vacant with the trade of Ryan Callahan last March. Yeah, the Rangers had other players who would have made perfectly good captains. But Ryan McDonagh was the…

175 Rangers-Flyers in review (again)

Thoughts: 1) Happy October. Gotta tell you, that’s enough preseason for me. If they stopped right now, I’d be happy. The last two games, at least, will pretty much be the Rangers’ opening-night roster with a few players battling for the last two or three jobs. And they’ll be playing…

Click here for my story on Mats Zuccarello from lohud.com  I will post the story in full later on. In it, we were discussing his ability to agitate and he said, “Someday I’m going to get my ass kicked.” Guy’s a character. Thoughts: 1) That Flyers lineup. OK, Mr. Snider’s…
