358 Rangers-Thrashers, er, Jets in review

“It’s pretty ugly everywhere at times now.” That was the quote from Brad Richards (on MSG Network), who said several times several different ways that the Rangers: A) survived themselves and a brutal opening schedule and B) are not playing particularly well, even if they are playing hard most of…

96 Rangers-Flames in review

Gotta go quickly today. Got a football game to cover tonight, so I’m going to attend a meeting with Mr. T at Mr. Green’s office this morning. Thoughts: 1) I’m going to invoke the name Brian Leetch again. Because Leetch always had a clock in his head, and he knew…

272 Rangers-Islanders in review

Told ya. This game was exactly what I expected … except that it really wasn’t very nasty. Come to think of it, other than the fights in the stands, it wasn’t nasty at all; and as I recall, last year the Rangers played better and played tougher in games that…

525 It’s Go Time!

Live from Nassau Coliseum … no accidents, no tickets, no roadrage incidents … First game in North America, only game in the U.S. until the home opener Oct. 27. Rangers are without Marc Staal and Michael Sauer, so the third D-pair is Steve Eminger and Jeff Woywitka, making his NYR…

181 Rangers-Mighty Ducks in review

Thoughts: 1) Yay! Skills competition. Pretty serious lack of skills in this one. Brad Richards lost the puck at center ice, and the winning goal was a complete whiff. 2) The Rangers shouldn’t fight the opponent’s goons unless it’s absolutely necessary. So far they have had two staged fights, and…

19 Rangers-Frolunda in review

(Editor’s note: Anybody interested in doing reviews of the Sunday or Monday games? If so, e-mail me at rcarpini@lohud.com) Another round of cuts coming today for John Tortorella. As I’ve said all along, there really aren’t a lot of spots available for new guys. The Rangers still need to keep…

209 John Tortorella’s press conference

Better late than never. This is yesterday’s presser. I won’t be around the team today as it skates in the morning and then flies — that’s right, flies — to Albany for the preseason opener. I’ll be back this evening for a Go Time thread. Tortorella noted that there’s a…

100 The first weekend of camp

I’m not sure what to make of it all. First, I appreciate the Rangers being cautious with Marc Staal, especially, but also with Brandon Prust and Michael Sauer and Artem Anisimov. Again, especially Staal. Concussions are the scourge of sports — I’m actually working on a story with former Giants…
