Dan Girardi Can’t Keep Playing 30 Minutes

Dan Girardi is playing 30 minutes a game, or close to it. Simply put, that cannot continue. We say it twice last night, and a few additional times last week, where Girardi would get a minor injury, miss a shift or two, and then come back. During those two shifts when he wasn’t out, many fans would hold their collective breaths, hoping and praying that Girardi wasn’t seriously...

Memo To Rangers Fans: Time To Get Girardi Apparel At MSG

The New York Rangers are a team that has certain lynchpins that hold the whole thing together.  When you think of those players Lundqvist, Callahan, Staal are the first three that come to mind for me.  Obviously the work of Gaborik, Richards and Dubinsky are keys to success of the team along with continuing emergence of Ryan McDonagh and Michael Sauer defensively.  The guy that...

Let's Get Girardi Apparel in Rangers Team Store

Michael Gleich at Bleeding All Blue is fed up with the Rangers not having Dan Girardi apparel in the team store at Madison Square Garden and this is what he wants Rangers fans to do about it..."From what I have been told, the reason that no Girardi merchandise is available in the stores at MSG is because it is not a requested item by the fans. Time for us to change that fact...

Jan Levine: Game 12: NYR 5 MTL 3, Solid Effort, Cally Plays Role of Captain, WPG Sun

Save for a few minute stretch in the second, the Rangers played a very solid game in beating Montreal 5-3 Saturday. What many will remember from the game is the fight in the first that saw Michael Sauer and Petteri Nokelainan earn game misconducts, leaving the already short-handed Rangers' defense even more at a deficit. Goals in the first by Erik Christensen (two points)...

Guest blogger HWirth: Rangers-Canadiens in review

Nothing beats Original Six matchups on Hockey Night in Canada as the New York Rangers (6-3-3) continued their winning ways with a 5-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens (5-6-2). The Canadiens came into the game winners of 4 straight but were missing Scott Gomez (that’s a bad thing, right?) Thoughts: 1) Fireworks early (not created by Avery) after a clean hit by Blunden off the...

Boyhood Buddies Together Again with Rangers

By Bruce Berlet It’s almost something out of Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Then again, even Ripley’s might not believe this tale. Two decades ago, Dan Girardi and Andre Deveaux lived five minutes apart in Welland, Ontario, Canada, and spent many a day shooting at targets in a net that Girardi’s father had set up at the end of the driveway. “We played games for candy...

The Ones You Gotta Win - Thrash…err….Jets @ Rangers Post Game Thoughts…

The Rangers had to have this one tonight. No ifs, ands or buts about it. They HAD to have it. Why? It’s simple, they were playing against an inferior team without most of their “name” players. No Antropov, no Enstrom….ok, well, maybe just those 2, but for a hapless team to begin with, those 2 are enough. The Jets had all sorts of injuries to their defense, and...
