134 Rangers-Flys in review

Has there been a game this season that better defined these Rangers, the It’s Just Paingers? In a game, let’s face it, they pretty much had to win, they played with all those characteristics we’ve seen most of the year: The shot blocking, the body checks, the PK, the struggle…

888 It’s Go Time!

Could be interesting tonight. I forgot that Village People Gillies is back from his perpetual suspension. Maybe he goes back out after his meeting with NHL HQ tomorrow. But Haley, the mini-brawler, is in the lineup, and Avery already had pleasantries with Konopka during warmups. Then there’s Matt Martin, who’s…

202 Sabres-Rangers in review

John Tortorella was not happy after this one, and who could blame him? Because while the effort wasn’t good enough, as he put it, for Game 77, neither was the concentration. I mean, there’s a kid goalie thrown in under emergency circumstances, and yet the Rangers insisted on passing up…

152 Rangers-Bruins in review, by guest blogger Adam Z.

What a difference a year makes. A season ago, 87 points meant failure. Today, by contrast, 87 points means the following: One regulation loss in our last 10 games. Tied points-wise with Montreal for sixth. Seven points clear of Carolina. The magic number down to eight. And three days off…

399 Rangers-Panthers in review

OK, it was unwatchable. And the Garden crowd was dreadfully quiet — that’s what happens when people buy season tickets and have to sell a lot of them because of the cost, and then cherry-pick which games they’ll attend; but also when the Garden insists on making hockey games in…

767 It’s Go Time!

Better late than never. As you know by now, Lundqvist is expected to start against Marc-Andre Fleury. Rest of the lineup remains the same. That means Avery is prucha’d. There’s some intrigue about what’s wrong with Marc Staal. He didn’t skate yesterday and was a surprise scratch today, but nobody’s…

278 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Ten to go. If your heroes get 10 of a possible 20 points, that’s 90, and that should be plenty. Scoreboard watching tonight: Kansas City-bound Thrashers at Bison Baby Buffaloes. Boston at Air Canada Leaves. Thoughts: 1) I still think staged fights, or fights for no reason, accomplish little or…

Hockey
225 Rangers-Islanders in review

I’ll link later to my game story … which was about how there’s always these goofy swings in Rangers-Isles games, and how the Rangers survived the lows by going back to basics — down low, straight-ahead play. They do it after bad periods. They do it after bad games (see:…

37 Tortorella pre-game

This was one of the dullest pre-gamers of the season. The news, as you all know already, is that Avery and Eminger are back in, Wolski and Gilroy are prucha’d tonight. The last question of the press conference was whether the Rangers will wear their white jerseys again tonight. Tortorella…

294 Rangers-Sharks in review

And then there were 12. Your heroes sure came up big in the Shark Tank last night, or should I say this morning? Perfect? Not nearly. Better than Anaheim? Only about 100 times better. Big, huge skills competition win. That Bettman Bonus Point could come in handy. Thoughts: 1) The…

362 Rangers-Flys in review … by guest blogger TimG

Today was my first regular season Rangers game in person. After over 20 years of rooting over the TV and internet I finally was able to witness the awesomeness that is the Blueshirts, MSG, and a good old fashion beat down in person. Even another winter storm couldn’t ruin the…

423 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Was at a hoops game (really, really good game) so I heard the first two periods on radio, came home, watched the third period, then watched the first two periods. Odd way to watch a game. That said, Rangers-Canes was a pretty entertaining one, wasn’t it? Pretty big win for…

302 Rangers-Penguins in review

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m back. Did I miss anything? Seriously, is there anything I need to know? I mean, I watched all the games, but I really didn’t check in here too much. So, anything going on here? Before I get back to work, special Thank Youse to Sean Mayer…

246 Red Wings-Rangers in review … by cwgatti

Same old story for the NY Rangers. Keep it close for 55 minutes, and then turn it on. That scenario didn’t bode well for our boys: On the road against a superior team that has been shut out two games in a row. I wasn’t betting on tonight being the end…

112 Habs-Rangers in review … and our contest winner nailed it

First, congratulations to our friend Dreadnaught, who not only correctly predicted the 2-0 final score, but also had the No. 1 tiebreaker (which wasn’t needed) with Scott Gomez having the game-winning goal. Dreadnaught, please e-mail me at rcarpini@Lohud.com so we can arrange to get your tickets to you. ———————– Now.…

143 Sean Avery: Advocate for gay hockey players?

There’s this story on Advocate.com where the Rangers’ Sean Avery is quoted as saying, in the Toronto Sun: “If there’s a kid in Canada or wherever, who is playing and really loves the game and wants to keep playing but he’s worried about coming out, I’d tell him to pick…

As I’ve told youse guys, I’m going away from here for a week. Not my choice. I’ll schedule some blank canvas posts, and my sports editor, Sean Mayer (Rangers fan), will put up some of the pre-game and post-game notes the Rangers send along and any news that breaks, and…

35 Tortorella pre-game

The news first: Lundqvist in goal. Prospal to play LW with Gaborik and Stepan, Del Zotto on defense, Eminger prucha’d. Other lines: Wolski-Drury-Avery Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan Zuccarello-Boyle-Prust.  Will have quotes shortly. ——– John Tortorella: “Same pairs on defense. I thought (Sauer and McDonagh) were our best pair the other night. I thought…

207 Rangers-Penguins in review

Well, that wasn’t exactly a textbook game, was it? Entertaining? Yes. Certainly not perfect. Your boys should be happy they got a point, because they could have easily gotten none, but sorry they let another one get away, to a team they’re chasing. Thoughts: 1) I am so, so sick…
