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…

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…

532 It’s Go Time!

Marc Staal will be a gametime decision, based on how he feels in warmups. You probably know his decision by now, via twitter, tweeter, tooter, or the MSG pregame show. Fedotenko is back in. So here are the probable lines according to our sources (the guys who are actually doing…

194 Fedotenko, Staal return; Newbury assigned to Whale

So it looks as if Marc Staal and Ruslan Fedotenko will both be in the lineup tonight. That likely means a prucha for Steve Eminger. And Kris Newbury was sent to the Whale. PS, happy 43rd Mr. Brian Leetch! Here’s the announcement on Newbury, from the Rangers: NEW YORK RANGERS…

511 It’s Go Time!

Before we get to the game, youse should know I’m on a banning rampage. And if some of you clowns keep stepping out of line, you will be banned … and I might as well tell you that I will enjoy doing it. OK? Update on Del Zotto. He is…

Hockey
32 Tortorella pre-game

John Tortorella: On what he thinks of McCabe: “Hasn’t played yet.” On what he knows and expects: “Well, we all … veteran guy. He’s got the big shot on the power play. And I think it helps us, at this time of year, with our pairs, especially with Marc being…

Hockey
35 Tortorella, McCabe pre-game

Will have quotes shortly … but here’s the news. McCabe will play with Eminger and wear No. 28, and play on the power play. Duh. Fedotenko is out, so Newbury will play. Del Zotto is still here, even though the Rangers made a paper transaction to send him to the…

604 It’s Go Time!

No Marc Staal (knee), so Ryan McDonagh slides into the first pair with Dan Girardi and faces the fun task for a youngster: facing Alex Ovechkin (=Monster) every shift. Maybe Dubinsky can fight him again and get him off the ice for five minutes. Lundqvist is in goal. Eminger is…

467 Trade winds blowing?

Or not? The Monday trade deadline is coming fast, and a lot of teams have jumped out ahead of the parade and made big deals. I still suspect there will be a massive number of trades Monday. And we will be here, at Blog HQ with youse, from breakfast, through…

Hockey
367 It’s Go Time!

Lundqvist back in goal, looking to pass John Vanbiesbrouck on the Rangers’ wins list. Kris Newbury was returned to Connecticut this morning, meaning the Rangers have one extra player around. So Steve Eminger is expected to be prucha’d as the Rangers go with the same lineup tonight. You all know…

Hockey
575 It’s Go Time!

Finally! Lundqvist in goal. Wolski looks like he’s going to play, after a full warmup. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t. Del Zotto’s in for Eminger, who is prucha’d.

Hockey
416 It’s Go Time!

It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: This game is pretty Byfuglien pivotal. Home ice. No Crosby or Malkin. It’s time to make hay. Eminger back in the lineup. Del Zotto prucha’d. Godard to begin serving his automatic 10-game suspension for coming off the bench during the Pens’…

Hockey
535 It’s Go Time!

Pivotal game tonight, with the host Thrashers just four points behind the Rangers for the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference. (Carolina is in eighth place, three points behind the Rangers.) The Rangers, with five losses in a row, aren’t the only team that’s struggling. Atlanta has lost four straight…

Hockey
618 It’s Go Time!

The contest is now closed. No more entries. Erik Christensen is back in the lineup, replacing Chris Drury (knee). Martin Biron starts in goal. Michael Del Zotto remains on defense. Steve Eminger¬† is prucha’d.

239 Devils-Rangers in review

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…

Hockey
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…

820 It’s Go Time!

As we hit the final 30 … Brandon Dubinsky, Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi are all in. Michael Del Zotto, too. Lundqvist starts in goal. Steve Eminger is prucha’d. Again, no Sid the Skid, no Evgeni Malkin for the Penguins. Here are the probable lines and combos, according to Andrew…

140 Rangers-Caps in review

Six days ago, we were sitting in the press conference room and John Tortorella was talking about losing Brandon Dubinsky, on top of losing all these other players including Ryan Callahan, and during the game that night the Rangers would also lose Ruslan Fedotenko. And that was the first game…

354 Canes-Rangers in review

You can blame this one on the injuries and the minor-league roster, but that wouldn’t be accurate, because the way the Rangers played, they would have lost even if they’d had most of their injured players. They didn’t play the way they have played most of the season, and the…

74 Rangers-Leaves in review

Don’t put too much stock in the score, OK? There was some lousy goaltending and lousy play by the lousy visiting team and it got out of hand in a hurry. That said, there were a lot of positives, including the PK early, then the PP, mostly Gaborik getting going…
