30 Tortorella’s pre-gamer

John Tortorella: On getting Gaborik back: “I think he can make a big offensive play. Like I said the other night, we’re a play, maybe a defensive play, an offensive play, a big play from winning a game for us. We didn’t get it done. I think Gabby’s going to…

160 Rangers-Devils in review (sort of)

I don’t have a lot to say, or much time to say it. Because, simply, I didn’t see the game last night, and because I couldn’t find a Rangers in 60 (only a Boomer and Carton in 60). 1) If you’re ever in that situation and can’t find a replay…

105 Rangers-Leaves tonight

I like these quick turnarounds. Of course, I didn’t have to catch a flight early this morning, then go through customs, and arrive at my hotel too early for check-in, etc. as I did in the good ol’ days. Below is an abbreviated version of tonight’s notes (to read more,…

24 Some shuffling at MSG:

Will have John Tortorella’s presser shortly. First, he said that Grachev will play, starting on right wing on a fourth line with Christensen on the left and White in the middle. (Markus Naslund, unofficially, is the only Ranger ever to wear No. 91, which Grachev will wear in his NHL…

88 Thrashers-Rangers in review

Some thoughts: 1) I saw Artem Anisimov after the game. He was standing, talking to one of the Thrashees, no boot, no crutches, no cane. I didn’t see if he was limping, but I imagine he was. He didn’t sound terribly worried. That doesn’t mean that it’s good or bad…

95 Reason for optimism

Hey, sorry I’m late again. Had an unexpected situation here at Blog HQ. Nothing major. ——————– As I said yesterday, the three wins in four nights reinforced my belief that this team is better than last year, and should make the playoffs — no guarantee, obviously, with so many teams…

186 Devils-Rangers in review

Half a day late and several dollars short … It’s hard not to review the whole three games in four nights as one, because it really was a fabulous long weekend for your boys. Here’s my story from The Journal News and LoHud.com today. Small piece of news this morning:…

3 More post-game quotes

Ryan Callahan: “When we outwork the opponent, we’re a pretty tough team to beat and I think we showed that this weekend. And everybody’s excited.” On playing with Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov: “It’s been fun playing with those guys. Right from the start, the three of us were ready…

479 It’s Go Time!

Having a great night at MSG. Saw one of my all-time faves over dinner in the pressroom: Mr. John Davidson, big cheese of the St. Louis Blues in town for NHL meetings. Then bumped into Blogmama and Mrs. TR during warmups. Now Go Time. Lineup remains the same, with Prust…

79 Devils-Rangers tonight

The Rangers recalled Jeremy Williams from Hartford today. I’m guessing he would fill in for Brandon Prust. Still awaiting word on Prust’s status after he was hit in the eye inadvertently by Gregory Campbell’s stick in Boston. He reportedly flew home with the team last night, and I was just…

Hockey
188 Rangers-Leaves in review

Some thoughts: 1) Ryan Callahan didn’t score again. He did everything but score. He created chances, had chances, and did all those Callahan things he always does, too.His best game of the season. Easily. 2) Brandon Dubinsky’s played some good games since the season began. I thought this was his…

99 Rangers back on the ice …

… well, what’s left of them is back on the ice. And while I’m off today, others work. I know, I feel terrible about that. Our buddy Andrew Gross has all the news from practice, including that Sean Avery will not be suspended for chopping down Mike Komisarek like George…

190 Leaves-Rangers in review

Watched some of Rangers Encore when I got home at 1:30 a.m. I know, get a life. But it confirmed a few things for me. Some thoughts on Leaves-Rangers. 1) Toronto might actually be much improved this year. Is 4-0 a fluke? Maybe. Do I think the Leaves are a…

First the news, which I actually tweeted from Tortorella’s presser. Gosh, Tweeting is fun. Gaborik is out 2-3 weeks with a separated shoulder. Drury is out six weeks with a broken finger … the same finger, a different break. Vinny Prospal will have surgery on his knee Tuesday and is…

76 Wisniewski gets two games for stupidity (updated)

The NHL suspended the Islanders’ James Wisniewski two games for his lewd gesture toward Sean Avery Monday. Surprisingly, the NHL did not find reason to suspend Avery. Remember, this Wisniewski is a guy who was suspended eight games for a vicious hit last March. Here’s the AP story on the…

Almost crack of noon. Sorry kids. Been burning the candle at both ends (without the fun) and it finally caught up to me. Here’s my column from The Journal News and LoHud.com today. Some thoughts about the game yesterday. 1) You know I don’t sugarcoat things, so maybe you’ll respect…

Sean Avery (with some help from Andrew Gross, because my recorder started buzzing during the interview): On the Callahan penalty: “That’s a tough call. Two guys going hard for a puck. Hard game like that.” On the lewd gesture by the Islanders’ James Wisniewski: “Imagine if I did that? Heck,…

170 Rangers-Sabres in review

I gotta tell you, I met Derek Stepan the day before the Traverse City tournament, and I thought, “Wow, this kid is confident and he is mature.” But I hadn’t seen him play. Then I saw him play, and I thought, “Wow, this kid is pretty good.” Then I spoke…

520 It’s Go Time!

The first night of Life after Redden begins tonight with this forewarning from me: And I’ve said this about the captain, and I’ll say this about Michal Rozsival, and others. If the contract hadn’t been so obscene, we probably wouldn’t look at Wade Redden this way. If it wasn’t so…
