146 Rangers-Senators in review; Live chat at 1:30

First things first: We will have a Live Chat today at 1:30, so pretend to be working and sneak over here with questions/comments. Please enter a user name when you ask or comment. Makes it easier for me. Thanks. Be there. ************************* Shocker. Rangers get shut out, bunch of you…

289 It’s Go Time!

Game 41. After tonight’s game the Rangers will be halfway through their season. Ya boys have won five in a row and 10 of 11, and lead the entire National freakin’ Hockey League in points. Three of their players — Henrik Lundqvist, Marian Gaborik and Dan Girardi were named today…

195 Rangers-Panthers in review

For all the complaining we (I) did about the outdoor game, it was a downer going back indoors, especially at the World’s Quietest Arena. What a shame. Could you imagine a first-place team in the middle of a season in the 1970s or ’80s and the kind of intimidation MSG…

344 Winter Classic: Rangers-Flyers in review

Glad that’s over. The NHL will be thrilled — and Gary Bettman clearly was, bogarting the stage as NHL Network’s first interview on the never-ending post-game show — because it made a ton of money, got a zillion eyeballs to watch, sold a gazillion pieces of merchandise. But the all-Philadelphia…

338 It’s Go Time! … alumni game today

It will be fun seeing some of the old-timers back in uniform. Not sure it’s two and a half hours worth of fun. I’m sure some of the players will be mic’d up and no doubt interviewed while on the bench. I just hope that the broadcast doesn’t become more…

102 Avery clears waivers; not going to the Islanders

So Sean Avery is Connecticut (AHL) bound again. He cleared waivers at noon. Apparently, the Islanders didn’t agree with some of the b.s. we may have read or heard about what a bounty it would be to grab Avery at a discounted price. Making that, how many times now that…

Hockey
89 Rangers-Panthers in review

This is what’s special about this team. The most hyped game they have played in years, if not decades, coming up next, a bad loss in the game previous. I know some of you guys worried about this being a trap game during the live chat yesterday and we talked…

419 It’s Go Time!

Game 35. First of three in a row on the road for your first-place boys, on a five-game winning streak. A 7:30 start for Versus (exclusive telecast). Followed by episode 3 of “24/7″ at 10, and replayed at 11, on HBO. (Nine more days before I can cancel my HBO!).…

354 Rangers-Islanders in review

First place in the East. Five straight wins. Top two or three in team defense. Fewest losses in the whole freakin’ National Hockey League. And your New York Rangers really haven’t nearly hit their stride or been nearly 100 percent healthy yet. ‘Nuff  said. Thoughts: 1) Seven goals allowed in…

Hockey
367 It’s Go Time!

Game 34. Rematch of Thursday’s 4-2 Rangers win. Ya boys on a four-game winning streak. With Boston idle tonight, the Rangers could move into first place in the East with a victory. Same lineup, other than Henrik Lundqvist in goal (Martin Biron beat the Islanders Thursday) and probably Jeff Woywitka…

187 Rangers-Coyotes in review

Well, that was about as wild as it gets. Not one for the archives in terms of how to play, or how to win. But, wow, was that a finish. I am racking the rusty rolodex between my ears trying to remember a similar game, and I’m sure there was…

Hockey
394 Rangers-Blues in review

Thoughts: 1) The Rangers don’t usually get out hit and outmuscled, but they sure did in the first period and they definitely did on the first goal … even if there was an illegal pick there. I thought they lost about four physical battles on that shift. 2) And from…

Hockey
128 Rangers-Stars in review

This was the lead to my story in The Journal News and on LoHud.com about last night’s game: Get ready, hockey fans. The NHL is going to shove more nights like this down your throats with realignment. More non-conference games, more games with zero playoff implications. Less passion. Quieter arenas.…

23 Live from MSG … for what that’s worth

No pre-gamer with John Tortorella because he addressed the unwashed masses after the morning skate today. This is standard procedure. It’s always one or the other. So no new news, really. Same lineup tonight, which means Sean Avery is prucha’d (unleash the blog traffic) while Erik Christensen gets a sweater…

172 Rangers-Panthers in review

Not going to get all wrapped up in who did what on a lopsided scoresheet, though I’m sure you all enjoyed the heck out of it, and you should have. Instead, how about numbers?: 17-6-4, second best record in the improving East and fewest regulation losses in the NHL; 8-2-2…

221 Rangers-Lightnings in review

So, I guess we can say this streak isn’t a fluke, right? I mean, the Rangers have won games by dominating, won games when they were less than dominating, won games protecting leads, won games by coming from behind. They have gotten up for the big teams, haven’t let down…

517 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

You know what? That was an imperfect game against a struggling team. OK, given. But that’s a good, good win. That’s a tough game to be the road team, with the coaching change and the feelings of getting the popular coach fired, and the new coaches on the bench. And…

512 Rangers-Crosby, I mean, Penguins in review

This is as well as the Rangers have played in any three-game stretch this season, includng the seven-game winning streak … all against good Eastern teams. And I still don’t think they’ve nearly hit their stride, even at 10-2 in the last 12 and 7-0 in the last seven at…
