Begging is never Flattering

Prolly not happening..but dude does look ill in an NY Jersey

The full court press to get Lebron to New York has officially begun.

In the words of my main man Russ Bengston via Twitter, “New York City shouldn’t have to pander. To use that ever-popular NBA phrase, it is what it is. You’re welcome if you come. If not? F**k you.”

Devils outlast Rangers in shootout

January 13, 2010

Patrik Elias scored the decisive goal

NEW YORK — Martin Brodeur was flawless for the New Jersey Devils on a night when Henrik Lundqvist, his counterpart for the New York Rangers, threatened to match him save for save.

Patrik Elias scored the only goal in the shootout, Brodeur earned his fourth shutout in the last 10 games, and the Devils beat the Rangers 1-0 on Tuesday.

Revenge is sweet

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — For one night, the New York Rangers‘ roster shake up worked.

Playing without benched veterans Wade Redden and Ales Kotalik, the Rangers responded to coach John Tortorella’s heavy hand and broke out of their offensive woes.

Ryan Callahan had two goals and two assists, and Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves to lift the Rangers to a 5-2 victory over the Islanders on Thursday night that snapped a five-game losing streak (0-3-2) and gave them a split of the home-and-home series.

Tortorella left screaming as Islanders defeat Rangers, again.

Roloson and the Islanders frustrated the Blue-Shirts all night long

via Associated Press

NEW YORK — Without watching a minute of action, it was easy to tell which New York team came out on top in the first half of a home-and-home series between the Islanders and Rangers.

All it took was a glimpse at the postgame reactions.

While the Islanders celebrated a team effort that produced a 2-1 road win on Wednesday night, Rangers coach John Tortorella unleashed an expletive-filled tirade after his offensively challenged club dropped its fifth straight (0-3-2).

Rangers host Islanders

December 16, 2009

Henrik Lundqvist has been dissapointing so far this season

via Associated Press

The New York Islanders‘ season may have hit a low point in their most recent contest, a blowout loss at home that was their fourth defeat in five games.

They won’t have to travel far to find another struggling club, as the New York Rangers carry a four-game losing streak into Wednesday’s opener of a home-and-home set between the local rivals.

Although they’re on pace to surpass the NHL-worst 61 points they earned last season, the Islanders (12-14-7) have still looked like a rebuilding team lately, losing three times by at least four goals during a 1-4-0 stretch.

Islanders routed by the Panthers

December 15, 2009

Nathan Horton scores his first of three goals

I actually watched most of this game, and what an embarrassment it was.  The Islanders were beaten to every loose puck, could not get their fore-check going, and looked flat in every aspect of the game. 

If there had been anything more significant than the sparse crowd on hand at Nassau Coliseum last night, the Islanders would’ve been hit with a hurricane of boos, but with the paltry attendance (listed as 10,489) the team was lucky to escape with just an understated shower of discontent after a humiliating 7-1 defeat by the Panthers.

Rangers can’t solve Hedberg and the Thrashers

December 15, 2009

Johan Hedberg made 46 saves in victory

 

via Associated Press

NEW YORK — Johan Hedberg was so busy during the game, he deserved the break he got in the shootout.

Hedberg made a career-best 46 saves and then was perfect in two shootout rounds to lift the Atlanta Thrashers to a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Monday night.

Captain Ilya Kovalchuk and Slava Kozlov scored on the Thrashers’ only shootout shots against Henrik Lundqvist. Hedberg made a pad save on NHL-leading goal scorer Marian Gaborik in the first round and then watched the puck slide off the stick of Ales Kotalik before he could muster an attempt.

Rangers fall once again

December 12, 2009

Rangers have lost six out of their last seven

Associated Press

NEW YORK — Tough guy Patrick Kaleta scored twice, including the tiebreaking goal in the second period, and the Buffalo Sabres shook off an uncharacteristic rough beginning by Ryan Miller in a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

Kaleta, known more for his fists than offensive touch, scored from in-close in the first and then converted a short-handed breakaway in the second to give the Sabres a 3-2 lead. He entered with 10 goals in 124 NHL games, but pushed his season total to a career-best five with his first two-goal game.

Too much turkey- Rangers look slow, lose big

November 27, 2009

Not the return to Tampa Coach Tortorella envisioned

The Rangers traveled to the St. Pete Times Forum on Saturday night to play the Tampa Bay Lightning where the Lightning have played exceptionally well this year holding a record of 5-1-4.  If we break this down, this means that when the Lightning play at home, in 90 percent of their games, they have emerged with at least one point.   In order for the Rangers to win tonight it was obvious they needed to  play at an extremely high level for the entire game.
