Game 75: Potential first round matchup against Washington

Sorry for the tardiness of this post. Between the wedding yesterday and the birthday activities planned by my girlfriend all weekend, I haven’t really had time to sit and write a game thread. The Caps are in town today to take on the Rangers, fresh off a sloppy effort in Boston yesterday. The Caps are –probably– securely in the playoffs,…

Game 74: The Return of the King

Sorry for the late game thread today, I forgot it was a 1pm game. I have a wedding today (not mine), so this is going to be a short game thread. The Rangers clinched a playoff spot with their domination over the Senators the other day, and now will look to pad their lead for home ice advantage while potentially…

Game 73: Taming the red hot Senators

The New York Rangers are in Ottawa tonight to take on The Hamburglar and the Ottawa Senators. The Senators have ridden goalie Andrew Hammond, The Hamburglar, all the way to the second wild card in the Eastern Conference. Hammond is 14-0-1 with a .946 SV% (!!) as the Sens leapfrogged half of the Eastern Conference, including the Boston Bruins, to…

Game 72: Deliver crushing blow to Kings playoff hopes

The Los Angeles Kings are in town tonight to take on our New York Rangers in what is being billed as a rematch from last year’s Stanley Cup Finals. In short, it’s not, but the Rangers can deal a critical blow to the defending champs hopes this season. The Kings are four points out of the wild card (Winnipeg), but…

Game 71: Start playing better with Anaheim in town

After last night’s thrilling escape act in Carolina, the New York Rangers are back home tonight to take on the Anaheim Ducks in a game that might decide who wins the President’s Trophy. The Rangers are two points back of the Ducks with three games in hand, but the Ducks have a bit of a cakewalk of a division at…

Game 70: Rebound in Carolina

The New York Rangers are in Raleigh tonight to take on the Carolina Hurricanes in an attempt to rebound following their first regulation loss in the month of March. The Canes are not a good team this season, but they should be better than their record. This is a club that has been dealing with a number of injuries all…

Game 69: Another rough road starts against Chicago

Tonight, the New York Rangers look to extend their winning streak to six games –and sweep the season series against the Chicago Blackhawks– tonight at MSG when the Hawks come to town. The Rangers defeated the Hawks 1-0 just five games ago, in overtime, thanks largely to Cam Talbot’s 29 saves. The Hawks are the first game in a run…

Game 68: Pad the lead in Florida

After winning last night in Buffalo, the Rangers have won four in a row and five of their last six, including a 4-0-1 run against five teams that will be in the playoffs come April. All that has led to a three point lead on the Islanders with four games in hand. One of those games in hand is tonight…

Game 67: Keep winning against Buffalo

The Rangers face life without Kevin Klein for the first time tonight, as they are in Buffalo to take on the woeful Sabres. This Sabres team is actually trying to tank, and doing a bang-up job there. As you’ll see in this game preview, I just don’t even know who the Sabres dress anymore. The Rangers, meanwhile, went 4-0-1 against…

Game 66: Reclaim first place in Washington

Fresh off an emotional win last night on Long Island, the New York Rangers are in DC to take on the Washington Capitals. The Caps are the fifth straight playoff team the Rangers will face, and they’ve gone 3-0-1 in that span, which is pretty impressive. With the Rangers on the second of back-to-backs, the first time Talbot has played…
