Game 25: Talbot looks for third straight in Detroit

Cam Talbot will be in net tonight, looking for his third straight win and third straight shutout in Detroit, as the New York Rangers take on the Red Wings. The Rangers are fresh off a 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay, their third in a month, but are 6-0-1 in games where they haven’t played the Lightning, so that’s always a…

Game 24: Stop treating Cally like royalty, show you can beat Tampa Bay

It seems like the New York Rangers have only played two teams over the past two weeks: the Flyers and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tonight those Lightning are in town, and are 2-0 against the good guys. The second effort was much better than the tire fire that was the first game, and this will be the first time the…

Game 23: Aim for the home-and-home sweep

After their 3-0 blanking of the Flyers yesterday afternoon, the Rangers are back home hosting those same Flyers on the back-end of a home-and-home. It’s been a while since the Rangers have played a home-and-home on back-to-back nights (usually there’s a day off between), and the Rangers could really help themselves out with another win over a division opponent. The…

Game 21: Marty returns to Tampa Bay

One week ago, three former Rangers made their returns to MSG wearing Tampa Bay Lightning uniforms. Tonight, Martin St. Louis, the best player in Tampa Bay history, will make his return. It’s likely that the fans will boo him, and while you can understand why, it’s really undeserving. As for the game, the Rangers are going to look to avenge…

Game 20: Building on a strong win with Montreal in town

The Montreal Canadiens are in town tonight, as the New York Rangers are going to look to build on their solid shutout of the Philadelphia Flyers earlier in the week. The Rangers are well rested, with their Friday night game in Buffalo postponed due to biblical amounts of snow. The Habs are a solid team this year, building on their…

Game 19: Home whites for Philly

Perhaps the New York Rangers just need to get a game in against a rival to break their current slump. The Philadelphia Flyers are that kind of team, and perhaps the Rangers will show up for this one. Perhaps, since the Flyers are shorthanded –without Claude Giroux– the Rangers will dominate the game. It’s a lot of “perhaps” because we…

Game 18: Callahan, Boyle, Stralman return to MSG

Tonight’s game against the Tamp Bay Lightning comes with some added drama. Former captain Ryan Callahan, Brian Boyle, and Anton Stralman all make their MSG returns after departing the club last season. Cally left in the MSL trade, and Boyle/Stralman joined him via free agency. Cally played most of his first eight years in New York, and was named captain…
