663 It’s Go Time! … Game 2: Rangers at Bruins

Must win? Not yet. But you probably don’t want to play with those matches again, right. The Rangers came back from 0-2 for the second time in team history against Washington, so you really shouldn’t figure that can happen again, right? I don’t think the Rangers are dead at 0-2,…

192 Rangers-Flyers in review

Another great night for the Rangers. A woeful loss to a bad team in Philadelphia, and all the teams around them in the playoff race – Islanders, Ottawa and Winnipeg – won. The good news, if there is any, is that the Rangers are still in eighth based on a…

202 Rangers-Bruins in review

Thoughts: 1) I’m not judging anything or anybody after one game. But I agree with Captain Callahan, who said, “we’ve gotta increase out battle level.” It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t where it was last year (or the year before), and with some of the guys they lost — who…

110 Redden bought out

Here’s the official word from the NYR: RANGERS BUY OUT DEFENSEMAN WADE REDDEN NEW YORK, January 17, 2013 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has bought out the contract of defenseman Wade Redden. Redden, 35, registered five goals and 35 assists…

76 Tortorella post-practice

First the news. Brandon Segal practiced with the team … he did not have to clear waivers to get here, but will need to go through waivers go back down. Tortorella spoke pretty  highly of him afterward. He will wear No. 42 in Boston. Wade Redden cleared waivers and the…

132 Redden (and Gomez) could resurrect careers with new buyout rule

One of many reminders: Live Chat Wednesday at noon. Be there. ******************************************* Here’s my notebook from camp today: Two of Glen Sather’s biggest mistakes could be freed from their contracts by Saturday and thus, conceivably, continue their NHL careers. Defenseman Wade Redden, whom Sather signed to a six-year, $39 million…

223 My notebook from today

Didn’t write a story today, and since we’re still wrestling with this audio thing, here’s the notebook I put together after practice: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – As the Rangers’ only unsigned player, and as a restricted free agent, defenseman Michael Del Zotto’s leverage is limited. And it’s probably going…

First things first: We will have a Live Chat today at 1:30, so pretend to be working and sneak over here with questions/comments. Please enter a user name when you ask or comment. Makes it easier for me. Thanks. Be there. ************************* Shocker. Rangers get shut out, bunch of you…

94 Some early stuff from camp (updated)

First the news. Marian Gaborik is not on the ice. He attended the funeral service for his friend Pavol Demitra yesterday. Wade Redden is not here; he was assigned to attend Connecticut’s training camp right from the start. And Michael Sauer did not skate today with a tweaked knee. UPDATE:…

510 And now we return to the off-season …

It’s been pretty hectic around here the last couple of weeks, and I’m not complaining. Had a lot of stuff to talk about and a lot of fun talking about it. And now we go back to the off-season, at least for the moment. I still suspect your heroes might…

44 Breakfast with the Blueshirts

Because of the early start, and because there couldn’t possibly be anything John Tortorella could say at this hour that will still be relevant after the game, or question that couldn’t be asked after the game, there won’t be a pre-game press conference today. Fine by me. More time for…

29 Tortorella pre-game

The coach was pretty good this afternoon, talking about where his team is after 28 games. Those quotes will follow. Same lineup against Ottawa for the 5 p.m. start. Lundqvist in goal. Denis Potvin is in the building; I believe he’s working for the Senators now. More in a few…

108 Happy December, Happy Chanukah!

Here we are again, the dreaded December home-and-home with the Islanders. Not exactly an anniversary, because last year it was Dec. 16-17. But close enough. You may recall last December, the Rangers’ fast start having evaporated into two months of mediocrity when the Islanders came to MSG and rocked the…

164 Rangers-Flames in review

Let me ask a simple question. Do you remember many games like this the last two years? The last seven? Twelve? How many times do you think the Rangers have come across a game like that, with so much snarl from the start, and not only won it, but seemed…

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…

151 Walking a tightrope

The Rangers head out for a two-game trip with the minimum 12 forwards, and one extra D-man. Which means pretty much everybody who played Monday plays in Toronto tomorrow. Martin Biron is expected to get his first Rangers start in the next three games (in four days), and I’m expecting…

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…
