Rangers invent new way to lose in classic WTF game

I was going to do a goal breakdown for this game. I actually DVR’d the right channel this time around. I didn’t get home until the beginning of the third period, so I caught that, the overtime, and the shootout. And honestly, a goal breakdown won’t do this game justice. The 25 minutes of actual hockey I watched were entertaining,…

Rangers manage a point, lose in shootout to Colorado

The New York Rangers managed to grab a point against the Colorado Avalanche, but were downed in the shootout by a score of 4-3. New York didn’t come out particularly strong in the game, getting dominated by the Avs and trailing after the period. But then the Rangers found the same gear they had in the Pittsburgh game, and came…

Rangers show up, blow out Penguins

The New York Rangers decided to show up last night after no-showing both games this past weekend. The result: A complete and utter dismantling of the Pittsburgh Penguins and their +28 goal differential. The Rangers were on top of the Pens from the start, tilting the ice in their favor and using their speed to disrupt any offensive flow. The…

Rangers drop a brutal one to the Oilers

Going in to last night, there was good news and bad news. The bad news: the Rangers returned late last night with barely any time to rest up and prepare for their 6pm start. The good news: the 6pm start was against the Edmonton Oilers, known for not playing up to their talent level. Nothing like a quick victory to…

Defense fails Rangers against Leafs

After dropping into a 3-1 hole in the first period behind some spectacularly bad defense, the Rangers fought back and took the lead with three straight goals. Then two straight Toronto goals in the third led to the Rangers first regulation loss since the Montreal game on October 25. I DVR’d MSG instead of MSG2 last night, so there’s no…

Rangers edge past Wings in an Original Six nailbiter

The Rangers hosted the Red Wings on a slow night in hockey in what was a pretty riveting Original Six matchup. I’m still wrapping my head around what the term “rivalry” means to NBCSN, but so far I mostly think it means “the game that’ll generate the most viewership.” I also think it means an 8pm start, which means this…

Rangers manage a point against Blues

The New York Rangers, they of the two defensemen from opening night in the lineup last night, managed to grab a point against the St. Louis Blues, they of the odd bacterial infection that at least isn’t ebola. The Rangers played a fairly good game actually, despite being incredibly shorthanded. They made some slick passes for a pair of goals,…

Rangers drop one game and two D-Men

Saturday night’s alright for hockey. You’ve got Don Cherry’s fantastically insane suit choices on HNIC and typically some fantasy hockey nightmares when you decide who to bench since so many games are happening. The Rangers took part in this last night, playing their first game since Monday’s third period surge to come back against the Wild. Last night also kicked…

Wild third period boosts Rangers to victory

What a game that was. The New York Rangers trailed 3-0 to the Minnesota Wild heading into the third period. A comeback against the best defensive team in hockey (through six games) seemed unlikely, especially with Chris Kreider and John Moore lost to ejections. But then the lead was 3-2. After a breakdown gave the Wild a two goal lead…

The winning streak ends, as does my DVR streak

Yesterday was a busy day for me. After participating in a breast cancer fundraiser with my Crossfit box called Barbells for Boobs, I assisted my girlfriend in preparing for a party she was hosting. This involved me cooking all day with her, and naturally, I forgot to DVR the game. It sounds like it was a bad game, not converting…
