517 It’s Go Time!

The youth movement continues, as Todd White was sent to Connecticut (formerly Hartford, or Reddenville) today. I don’t blame Todd White at all. He didn’t fit here, and he had no chance to succeed here, and he certainly didn’t hurt the Rangers, though he also didn’t help. And that trade…

486 It’s Go Time!

Last home game of 2010. Mats Zuccarello made it back, dashing through the snow, from Hartford. Marian Gaborik is expected to return from a groin issue. Matt Gilroy stays in the lineup. Michael Del Zotto gets prucha’d again, along with Todd White. Lundqvist in goal. Here are the probable lines,…

507 It’s Go Time!

… and time for the feats of strength. Not to be confused with Rex Ryan’s feets of strength. Yamahama. It’s a special Festivus night Rangers game at MSG, vs. the Lightnings. Mats Zuccarello makes his NHL debut in place of Marian Gaborik (groin). Derek Boogaard (shoulder/headaches) remains out, along with…

51 Rangers-Yotes in review

Another one of those see-what-you’re-made-of wins last night. I won’t repeat all the stuff about resilience, and about playing to the end, and sticking to the system, and all that. Even though, it seems, every time they win and even most of the time when they lose, they are all…

Hockey
741 It’s Go Time!

Big game against the angry Pens, coming off a loss in Philly last night which ended their 12-game winning streak (their first loss since the Rangers beat them at the new Igloo a month earlier). So we get to see Sid the Skid, Malkin, Fleury and that piece of carcillo…

272 The Captain is back

We expect Chris Drury to play tomorrow in Pittsburgh, and I’m sure those guys who are at practice today will be talking to the captain about his return. But I want to get the discussion going ahead of the pack. Here’s my take: I know he’s not the most popular…

5 Post-game stuff: Drury returns

Quotes to follow. Just want to get this out there first, in case they didn’t cover it on the post-game show. Drury has been cleared to return and wanted to play tonight. He will play in Pitt Wednesday. “It’s not going to be the kids,” John Tortorella said. “I’ll tell…

386 It’s Go Time!

Lundqvist gets another start in goal. Eminger (back) and Boogaard (shoulder) are out, which means everybody else is in. Which means Michael Del Zotto is back from his homework assignment, and Todd White is back on the fourth line. Which means nobody is prucha’d. Here are the expected lines to…

Hockey
509 It’s Go Time!

Don’t forget, 7:30 p.m. start. Michael Del Zotto is prucha’d for the first time in his career, along with Todd White, we expect. “He needed to watch,” John Tortorella said, according to our friend Andrew Gross. Matt Gilroy goes back in to play the left side with Michael Sauer, while…

Hockey
27 Tortorella pre-game

First the news, then some quotes to follow: Same lineup tonight, with Lundqvist starting in goal. Prust is expected to play with a shoulder that’s been sore from fighting, and if he can’t, then White will be de-prucha’d. Drury is now skating and stick-handling, but still can’t shoot. Prospal is…

480 It’s Go Time!

You might want to watch the pre-game show in case there are any warmup shenanigans like last time the Rangers visited. Otherwise, you probably saw the Rick DiPietro quote in Jesse Spector’s blog today: “I truly don’t like the Rangers,” DiPietro said. “There’s nothing better in the world than beating…

Hockey
14 Tortorella pre-game

First the news. Will follow with quotes shortly. Boogaard’s back in. White is prucha’d. Lundqvist in goal. Drury skated today, but Tortorella said he “still a distance away” from returning. So is Prospal, who hasn’t skated. He said that Rozsival will not make the trip and sounded doubtful that he’d…

Hockey
476 It’s Go Time!

Just beyond the crack of noon. Rangers close out their four-game homestand (1-2). They go to Pittsburgh’s new house tomorrow. Henrik Lundqvist remains out with that flu/head cold. Martin Biron, who played so well on Thursday, gets the start in goal. Derek Boogaard is back in the lineup. Todd White…

Hockey
521 It’s Go Time!

To repeat today’s reports from other sites: Mike Sauer goes back into the lineup tonight, as does Todd White. Evgeny Grachev gets another look, too. That means Derek Boogaard and Matt Gilroy are prucha’d. Coach John Tortorella told reporters that the prucha-ing of Gilroy has nothing to do with Gilroy’s…

Hockey
75 Tortorella pre-game

First the news. As I tweeted earlier, Brandon Prust will play, though I can’t imagine he’ll be very attractive with that eye. Jeremy Williams may also play, in place of Todd White. Same lineup otherwise. Tortorella wouldn’t say whether Williams will play on the power play, where he excelled in…

194 Avs-Rangers in review

If this is Life without Gaborik, the Rangers are in trouble. As I wrote in my column in The Journal News and on LoHud.com today, I don’t think that’s necessarily the case. But they’ve got to be better than that. And they should be better than that. 1) If you…
