965 It’s Go Time!

Game 12. Rangers at Bruins. Ya boys hit the quarter-pole of this Bettman-shortened season with their third meeting (already) of the season against the team I think has been the most impressive in the East so far. The Rangers  have not won three in a row yet this season. The…

  Game 11. Lightnings at Rangers. Dan Girardi is expected to return after missing two games with an undisclosed injury. He will replace Steve Eminger on defense. Otherwise it looks like the same lineup (and the same line combinations) that beat the Islanders Thursday, meaning Brian Boyle is prucha’d, along…

397 It’s Go Time!

Game 10. Islanders at Rangers. First meeting of the season in the luke-warm rivalry. (Let’s face it, the Rangers have much bigger rivalries with the Devils, Flyers, Penguins and even Capitals right now). Brian Boyle, one of the “scared or tentative” players coach John Tortorella mentioned after the loss in…

  Game 8. Rangers at Lightnings. Holy mackeral, after tonight one-sixth of the season will be gone already. The Rangers (3-4) will start Martin Biron in goal (first start, second appearance of the season) against the Lightning (6-1), the most potent offense in the NHL (37 goals in seven games),…

Game 4. Rangers at Flyers. The Rangers come off their first win of the season, 4-3 in OT over Boston Wednesday night; the Flyers are winless (0-3) so far, and steaming. They are also banged up, with Scott Hartnell and Brayden Schenn out, and it looks like thugs Jody Shelley…

Game 3. Bruins at Rangers. Opening-night rematch already. Then the Flys tomorrow (so light up the Empire State Building in Orange and Black for Mr. Snider). Ya boys sit 0-2, and panic has set in amongst the Faithful (even though they started last year with three straight losses, albeit with…

89 Season preview: Position by position

FORWARDS: Three years ago, the Rangers had zero legit first-line forwards. Two years ago they had one (Marian Gaborik). Last year they had two (Gaborik and Brad Richards). This year they have three, with the addition of power forward Rick Nash. The lockout gave Gaborik time to heal from shoulder…

62 Rangers’ first unofficial skate of the post-lockout

Sorry again for the tech problems with the audio. I’m supposed to be getting a new, improved (how could it be worse than this p.o.c. Mac?) laptop for the season so this won’t continually happen. To review, 15 players skated today, including: Ryan Callahan, Brad Richards, Marc Staal, Ryan McDonagh,…

17 Rangers, Flyers and friends played hockey for a cause

I wasn’t on hand, but here is a story from our Gannett paper the Courier-Post with some video. There is also a photo gallery. They were chanting “Fire Bettman” among other things as the guys filled the arena with more than 10,000 fans, all proceeds going to Hurricane Sandy victims.…

Rangers-Devils Game 6. The Rangers play their fourth must-win game of the year. Yes, this really is one. But is it the last game? Is this the last “It’s Go Time!”? I think not. But I’ve been wrong a bit lately. We’re expecting Steve Eminger to go back into the…
