NYR/CBJ 10/29 Review: CZAR IGOR Picks Up First Shut-Out; Rangers Play Their Best Game of the Season, Kreider Continues To Roll; Fox = PP Soul, Messier, Panarin Bakes 3 Assists; Mika Still Scoreless, “Laffing” at #13 Doubters, Kakko Return, Seattle & More

With the Rangers needing a bounce back win after their 5-1 loss to the Flames on Monday; the Rangers did just that on Friday night, shutting out the Columbus Blue Jackets at M$G by a final score of 4-0. As a result, the Rangers won their first home game of the season.

Greetings and salutations everyone and welcome to another blog here on BlueCollarBlueShirts.com. What a victory for the Rangers and what a shut-out victory for CZAR IGOR SHESTYORKIN!

Two things off of puck drop here.

As mentioned last blog, I’m currently in Seattle, in preparation for Sunday night’s tilt between the Rangers and the Kraken. And come Sunday, if the Kraken come out as run down as this city of Seattle is – the Rangers should have light work on their hands.

And yes, and to be nice here, while I’m sure there are nice areas of Seattle (because after all, I’ve seen every episode of “Frasier” and I rarely saw bums littering and panhandling outside of “Cafe Nervosa”), but needless to say, it’s tough to take two steps in this city without someone asking you for a cigarette or change. Maybe this is Seattle’s way of making me feel welcome, because downtown Seattle is just like Manhattan – right down to their high-priced hockey tickets!

Do you know what’s great for the Rangers, as they head into their Halloween contest with the Kraken? If the Rangers power-play continues to thrive (as it did on Friday night against the Blue Jackets) – the Rangers should plow through the Kraken, like a bulldozer powering through Seattle’s CHAZ, where gas prices are now at $4.59 a gallon. (Not making this up.)

I took in Friday night’s game (or should I say afternoon, here in Seattle) from “The Angry Beaver”, Seattle’s oldest and best hockey bar. I met several other Ranger fans at the AB, where a good time was had by all. (The Molson Canadian buckets and whisky shots didn’t hurt either!)

As stated at the top of this blog, I have two things to get out of my system, with the second thing being this:

That’s right, I predicted this final score way before puck drop, and the Rangers and CZAR IGOR made a “Nostradamus” out of me, as they won this game – defeating the surging Columbus Blue Jackets 4-0.

(And while sometimes I do subscribe to the theory of “never let the truth get in the way of a good story”; to be fair, 999/1000 times – I always predict CZAR IGOR to pitch a shut-out. This was just the rare case where the Ranger skaters cooperated with my pregame diagnosis!)

As noted during my Rangers/Flames review from Monday, this blog will be a short one, as I was enjoying this particular game on the road and from a bar. In other words, I didn’t take any real notes when watching. I’m writing this entire blog off of memory. What a professional! Elmer Ferguson Award here I come!

After the loss to the Flames, where I suspected (and where Gallant also confirmed my line of thinking), that the Rangers were perhaps a victim of their busy schedule – the Rangers returned on Friday night at M$G, knocking off the Blue Jackets for their first home win of the season.

For the Rangers (while a loss wouldn’t have been the end of the world, as others may have led you to believe), this was absolutely their best win of the season.

Yes, Columbus is projected by many experts (and even fans, such as yours truly), to finish dead-last in the division, but going into this game, Columbus was 4-2-0, as opposed to the 4-2-1 third-place Rangers. With the Rangers needing to rebound after Monday night’s dreary loss, the Rangers did just that, where once again, their RESOLVE was on full display.

While the game review segment of tonight’s manifesto won’t have the full play-by-play of the game as usual; needless to say, there were many heroes in this one, where once again CZAR IGOR shone bright, logging 31 saves in all, for his first shut-out win of the season.

As noted previously on this site, in Igor’s three starts on the road this season, if it weren’t for a temporary lapse in defense and/or puck-luck goals, Igor, who gave up one goal each of those starts – he would’ve had a shut-out already, if not three of them. Instead, on Friday night, he recorded his first shut-out of the season at home.

Even better? CZAR IGOR picks up this shut-out just eight games into the season, rather than at the end of the season, as he did during the 2020-21 campaign.

That said, while Igor was once again phenomenal tonight, this was the first game of the season where Igor was somewhat able to relax a bit, as the Rangers, sans the first five minutes of the game, where the Blue Jackets initially out-shot the Blueshirts 6-1 – the hometown heroes pretty much played a complete 60 minutes.

And yeah, if you want to be a stickler and talk about the first five minutes of the game – go ahead. However, keep in mind that the other team is paid to play too. In either event, the Rangers did their job, and did it well, and that’s all you can ask for.

Good “ju-ju”? While at “The Angry Beaver”, I met up with Glenn Dreyfuss, a fellow contributor of Stan Fischler’s “Java Jive” newsletter. Dreyfuss is the man on the Kraken beat for Fischler and I had a good time watching the game with him, my buddies and other Ranger fans at this amazing watering hole. Call it luck, call it fate, call it a jinx and call it whatever you want – but while predicting a 4-0 victory, I also told Glenn that the Rangers power-play couldn’t score. The Rangers wound up scoring two power-play goals within seconds of me saying that!

For fans who subscribe to the “eye-test” (and not analytics), like I do – the Rangers looked great tonight.

The black-and-white stats also suggest as much, even if the Rangers lost the face-off battle by a tally of 31-21. Ironically enough, and in something that is extremely unusual, in all of the Rangers wins this season, the team lost the battle at the circle. In all of their losses, the Rangers were the better team at the dot.

How do you explain this phenomena? Easy – CZAR IGOR, who has covered up a ton of Ranger mistakes this season, where only in this game, did the team back him up 100% of the way.

Elsewhere on the stat sheet, once again, the Rangers showed off their physical superiority, out-hitting their divisional rival to a tune of 26-11. More impressive? The Rangers special teams, units which were near flawless, where the Blueshirts went 2-3 on the power-play and 3-3 on the penalty kill.

Far too often this season, the Rangers have been on the wrong end of the special teams game, so it was great to see them overcome their previous struggles in this department.

The “Road Warriors” did some home cookin’ on Friday night, where Kreider picked up two power-play goals, with Fox assisting on both of them. (Fox would also assist on another goal – a three-point game for MR. NORRIS!)

While I love my road-trips (and being at a bar too), I kind of wish I watched this game at home so I could give you the full treatment here – especially after a shut-out victory. Then again, this blog will probably be longer and more detailed than any other recap you’ll find out there – and that’s with one or twenty drinks in me! (Those damn Molson buckets at “The Angry Beaver”!)

Away from the team stats and CZAR IGOR’s performance, there was a lot to be happy about.

Chris Kreider, the alternate captain that should perhaps have the word “alternate” removed before the word captain; once again had a monster game, where he scored two power-plays goals. Both goals featured Kreider camping in front of the net, where he backhanded one shot for a goal and was in the right place & at the right time for another, as Adam Fox rifled a puck off of him.

In addition, CK20 also paced the team with shots on goal, with seven in all.

Adam Fox, who continues to amaze, picked up three assists in this game. As usual, Fox led all Ranger skaters in ice time, with 24:07 in all, where during that time, not only did he add three apples to his ledger – he was breaking up offensive chances out of the Blue Jackets too.

When it comes to the much talked about heralded Rangers offensive 1-2 punch, Mika Zibanejad and Artemi Panarin, while the two continue to struggle to score goals (and as they are paid to do), the super-duo picked up three assists combined, with “The Breadman” recording all three.

As noted last blog, while Mika does play well (especially on the penalty kill), and yes, while the Rangers power-play did pick up two PPG’s in this win (a season high) – it is of my opinion that when the Rangers are on the power-play, that the Rangers need to focus on Panarin, the sniper, and ditch the Zibanejad doing his “Ovechkin from the Office” role-play act – an act that is just as bad and with diminishing results, just like Steve Valiquette on these broadcasts.

(And I’m sure that whole preceding sentence and paragraph was grammatically incorrect, but hey – it’s late, I’ve been drinking and where else will you find such NYR insight?!?!?)

The Rangers two wonderkids, Kaapo Kakko and Alexis Lafreniere (pictured here from last season), both played well on Friday. As talked about last blog, the media seemed to have their catty claws out for Lafreniere during the three-day break. Nothing made me happier (outside of CZAR IGOR’s shut-out of course), to see Lafreniere silence his media critics while Kakko quieted some of his critics as well. Photo Credit: M$GN

Going into this game, we did have some light news and notes.

Ryan Reaves (who received an injury during his first shift of Monday night’s game against Calgary), is now on the injured reserved list. As a result, he’ll miss at least seven days and then be re-evaluated. It should be mentioned that Reaves will travel with the team as he heals.

I really like what Reaves is doing here. Similar to Monday night (where rather than staying in the locker room with the trainers, he stayed on the bench to lend moral support), Reaves may be in the press box come puck drop, but he’s with the team everywhere else.

I know I teased this previously on this site, but I did in fact finish Mark Messier’s new autobiography on my flight to Seattle. (Review of that book on this site next week.) What Reaves is doing here receives high marks (at least out of me), as he’s really being a team player and a leader, and his positive mentality should become contagious. Good job #75!

It’s been a rough start on the ice for Reaves, as he’s suffered two injuries thus far in 2021. However, once 100% healthy, I’ll think he’ll be a contributing factor towards Rangers success – especially in the playoffs. Photo Credit: NYR

With Reaves on the IR, the Rangers were able to recall Kaapo Kakko on Friday (as expected), which meant that the Rangers didn’t have to make a roster move, where most likely, Greg McKegg would’ve been sent back to the Hartford Wolfpack. In fact, not only did Kakko play during this victory, but so did McKegg. In turn, Julien Gauthier was made a healthy scratch.

Real quick here (as I don’t want to go on too long about this), but as mentioned last blog, many members of the NYR media had their pitchforks and torches out for Alexis Lafreniere during the past three off-days. As a result to this stupid overreaction and clickbait headlines, Lafreniere scored his third goal of the season. With his third five-on-five goal of the season recorded in this game, he now leads all Rangers in this department.

For some reason, and I can’t fathom why, I saw many fans throwing a bitch fit about Gauthier not being dressed tonight. You’d think these people would be happy about Kaako returning, but you’d be wrong. Welcome to Rangerstown, USA – where there’s always something to cry about. Hell, some tears out of these fans rival, if not surpass, the rain/water totals in Seattle this week.

While Kakko did go pointless tonight, it wasn’t for a lack of effort, as the Finnish native logged three shots on goal, where two of his shots, which took place in the first period, were of the highest of quality. CBJ goaltender, Elvis Merzlikins (more on him in a bit), was able to deny Kakko during these attempts, but all in all, Kakko played great in his return.

With Kakko back and Reaves out, here was Gallant’s line-up for this game:

FIRST LINE: Kreider/Mika/Goodrow (Many fans were up-in-arms about Goodrow on the first line but he complemented his new line mates well.)

SECOND LINE: Panarin/Strome/Kakko (Panarin picked up three assists tonight, playing with his favorite centerman, including assisting on Strome’s game winning goal, which was scored early into the first period.)

THIRD LINE: Lafreniere/Chytil/Blais (Some fans and many media members were upset about Lafreniere being down-shifted to the third line, but this move also worked out, with Lafreniere scoring a big goal late into the first period.)

FOURTH LINE: Rooney/McKegg/Hunt (This line also played superbly, where during many of their shifts, not only did they grind CBJ, but they also kept the puck in the Rangers offensive zone.)

Defensively, we had this:

FIRST PAIR: Lindgren/Fox (Best pair, and as usual.)

SECOND PAIR: Miller/Trouba (I thought that collectively, this was the best game these two have had all season.)

THIRD PAIR: Nemeth/Lundkvist (These two also had their best game of the season, where not only were both stellar defensively, Lundkvist also picked up an assist on Strome’s game winning goal.)

And in net, and as mentioned, was CZAR IGOR.

While I did have volume for the game at the bar, like you at home, the audio was off by a few seconds, thus making things confusing. Fortunately, I didn’t have to hear Vally on the pregame or post-game shows tonight, so I have no comments about his performance – outside of letting you know that many of you told me on social media that he once again was as brutal as a boil on your five-hole.

After a start that felt reminiscent to most games from this season, and where the Rangers were being out-shot 6-1, the Rangers recovered, tied the SOG category up and then took the lead, after Panarin hooked up with his favorite center:

1-0, GOOD GUYS, at the 12:29 mark of the period. For the second time this season, the Rangers scored in the first period and had a lead.

3:02 later, it was Lafreniere’s turn, as Fox set up the 20 year-old for this tally:


It was with this goal, where the Rangers took over the game and never looked back. While the team didn’t score in the second period (despite what felt like 897775667597 chances to do so), the Rangers kept their foot on the neck of the Blue Jackets and never let them come up for air.

The Rangers, as they’d later do towards the end of the second period, received a late power-play, another one of those “wrap-around period power-plays”. The Rangers wouldn’t score on this first attempt, but they’d score on the second attempt.

After twenty minutes, 2-0 for the home team.

Combined with his defense and ability to rack up multi-point games, it’s very easy to believe that Fox can win the Norris Trophy in consecutive seasons. Photo Credit: Ryan Strome

The second period, which was scoreless, featured a lot of what we’ve seen out of the Rangers this season:

— Failure to convert on the power-play.

— Jacob Trouba playing at his best after someone ticks him off.

— Igor being a rock, although his number wasn’t as called as frequently as it usually is.

— The Rangers not being able to score, despite long offensive zone shifts, where a goal would’ve changed the game. While not scoring in this second period didn’t backfire or anything like that, the Rangers easily could’ve had a three goal period here, thus putting this game out of reach early.

While on the topic of blow-outs, if you listened to Mark Messier on Ron Duguay’s “Up in the Blue Seats” podcast from Thursday, Messier talked about the importance of blow-outs and how it keeps team fresher during the course of the regular season.

And if you haven’t heard it already, Messier’s interview is well-worth going out of your way to listen to, as he talks a myriad of topics, including his displeasure of the Rangers not having a captain this season:

And one last time, I apologize for the brevity of this blog and the blow-by-blow style of my recaps, but I’m in a hotel room typing this up on a shitty laptop. The regular style of these reviews will return once the Rangers cross the Canadian border next week! (I’d like to do more on the Messier interview here, but I’ll save it for the book review blog.)

This is also my way of telling you that after forty minutes, we remained at 2-0 good guys. All that was left to do was close Columbus out – as the Rangers did.

I felt good about this game once I put this jersey on. And hey, how about another prediction? 3-0 Rangers, over Seattle, on Sunday night!

With the smell of victory in the air, the Rangers would in fact go on to dine.

As I was bitching to Glenn about the Rangers power-play, with about three seconds remaining, Kreider backhanded a puck past Merzlikins for the PPG, just 1:19 into the period. 3-0, GOOD GUYS!

As the game progressed, and after the Rangers killed a few penalties themselves, Chris Kreider was caught jaw-jacking Merzlikins, even calling the Columbus goalie “a piece of shit”. (His words, not mine!)

Right after this yammering, and at the 11:23 mark of the final stanza, this happened:

4-0, GOOD GUYS and a PPG, his second of the game, for CK20.

While Kreider got the goal on record here, make no bones about it, this was Adam Fox at his best, as #23 fired a puck right at Kreider and got the puck to deflect off of #20 for the goal.

Up 4-0, and with eight minutes remaining, there was one left thing to do besides win – get Igor the shut-out.

As my stupid friend “BORGATA RAY” openly used the word “SHUT OUT” in the bar (where me and everyone else in a Rangers jersey admonished his dumb ass), Igor made a few more saves, including saves 28, 29, 30 and 31, with the 31st save, matching his jersey number, being his final save for the shut-out.

Of note, Columbus, down 4-0, and with the puck with 15 ticks remaining , didn’t press the issue. Instead, with Merzlikins (who was previously trash-talked by Krieder) leading the way, the Blue Jackets sat with the puck in their own zone, watching the time expire. This was a nod-of-the-cap (or mask) from goaltender-to-goaltender, as Merzlikins preserved Igor’s shut-out for him.

As a Rangers fan, this was great. If I was a Columbus fan, maybe I wouldn’t be so happy about this classy act of sportsmanship. After all, when the Rangers are being shut-out (especially in 2-0 or 3-0 games), I’ve always campaigned the team to pull the goalie and try to get the extra attacker goal, if only as a morale thing and in an effort to give the team a confidence boost.

That said, I must thank Merzlikins, as he made Igor’s job easy as the clock ran down, even if Igor didn’t need such assistance!

My post-game meal at “Ivar’s Acres of Clams” – salmon, halibut and something else that tasted good!

Great win for the Rangers tonight, where yes again – this was the best win of this young season.

Few thoughts on the rest of the league before closing out:

— Tony DeAngelo, whose Carolina Hurricanes game was also featured at “The Angry Beaver”, picked up his first ever “Gordie Howe Hat Trick” in the Canes 6-3 win over the down-and-out & dead-and-buried Chicago Black Marks.

I know some readers will hate me bringing up Tony DeAngelo’s name all the time on this site – but yeah, I’ll take him over Trouba any day of the week, twice on Sundays. And like the Canes did, I’d also take DeAngelo over Dougie Hamilton – especially at 1/9th the price.

— Joel Quenneville is out in Florida while Kevin Cheveldayoff keeps his job in Winnipeg. Refer to my last blog about all of this, which I’ll soon plug below. That said, I’m surprised Chevy stays, especially with Coach Q. being forced to re-sign. I figured in this cancel culture world, everyone associated with this Beach incident would’ve been fully erased off of the board.

And while I understand all angles of this story – you can’t tell me that Cheveldayoff didn’t know anything.

In addition, and to reiterate this, before you jump down my throat – I understand that Coach Q. didn’t handle this right. However, is it right that he was forced to resign, over an incident that happened over eleven years ago elsewhere – a CRIME that he had nothing to do with?

I guess what really bothers me the most, and as talked about last blog, is that Brad Aldrich, the CRIMINAL in all of this, got away with his CRIME scot-free – even if his name (and as expected) is removed from the Stanley Cup. Are the Blackhawks going to take his Cup ring away from him? Whatever the case, they can’t take his memories and photos from all of those celebrations away – which is also sickening. Worse, and as mentioned last blog, the Blackhawks allowed Aldrich to victimize others.

— The Canes (7-0) and my new buddy Glenn’s favorite team, the Capitals (5-0-3), are still without a regulation loss this season. The Rangers are chasing these two teams in the standings, but as you know – plenty of time remaining, and with all the head-to-head games remaining too – the Rangers own their own destiny.

The hardcover version of my book.

Look Ma – I saved all of the plugs for the end of this blog.

Away we go!

The first plug of tonight’s blog – the mandatory plug for my new book, “The New York Rangers Rink of Honor and the Rafters of Madison Square Garden”. And let me say this – thank you to everyone who has bought one, as my Amazon sales have exceeded all expectations, where for a limited time (that damn Mark Messier who just released a book!), my book was number one on the Amazon hockey book sales charts.

As mentioned previously, the book is now available in hardcover, in paperback and in Kindle formats. To purchase a copy of the book, visit this link:

  1. Sean
    Think of this Kyle Beach story as Norm Macdonald, Dave Chappele or Jack and Victor might explain it………like this……..”so you are back at the hotel room with the “video coach” and the prostitute he brought along with him just sucked your dick and the coaches dick too!”…….then the “video coach” turns on the hetero porn on the TV screen and says……”kid unless you let me suck your dick too, you will never play in the NHL again!”…….so what else could poor Kyle do?…….but begrudgingly allow the “coach” to suck his dick as well…….oh the humanities!!!!…..slurp slurp slurp…..Kyle probably shouted out as he came for the “coach”……….I am hating this!!!……hate hate hate

  2. Sean
    So they go back to wherever……….and this young female “entity”……….she is never described!………is giving random blow jobs……………the coach is playing an age old game of homosexual predation which any male over 20 should be well aware of and which is now reinterpretaded as cisgender, white male, heterosexual act and typical of the white male NHL “culture” in the popular narrative……….this is why Ron Duguay is no longer on our TV screens. and that is because he might say………..OK lets slow down here……….the booze, the chick, the porn, the ok now let me suck your dick……..I mean come on man as Brandon would say

    Sean…….I was absolutely right on board for your initial visceral reaction to the Kyle Beach story but no more but I want to warn you……..stories like this are political now and if you bust this story open you are liable to be a marked man so do so only with the knowledge that you are in danger for reporting honestly on it and so would be your family

  3. It was a great Ranger win and I am much more relaxed about the team now than I was before.

    The Rangers looked like a team in that one, not like a bunch of individuals trying to dipsy doodle and turn a game around through sheer will

    I caught the first 2 periods of Carolina’s game and our old pal Tony D came through as I hoped he would……..and you should have seen Jesper Fast in that game………..do Lias and Kravtsov think that there is anything in their game that would warrant a demotion for Jesper Fast on any team in the entire world of hockey?………….they do and some fans do also think that……….but then again these are the same fans that think that Kyle Beach and Akim Aliu would have had long careers in the NHL if it were only not for the white male Neanderthals like David Quinn, JD and Joel Quennville running the show

    Already I have seen this certain group of Ranger fans taking this story about Kyle Beach and turning it into not only an indictment of the “culture” of hockey in general but also doing shit like this……..”see this is what I was saying about David Quinn in regards to Lias and Kravtsov situation”………….and I am sure you know what I mean……these are people that despise what you and me know of hockey and its culture when they don’t even know anything about the game or that culture

    Fuck Kyle Beach!.,………fuck that whole story Sean……….hey lets tear down the Statue of Liberty and put up a Statue of Kyle Beach with his dick in his hand.

  4. When you are over the age of 18 you are responsible for your dick and where you put it…….so if you get jazzed up by a predatory homosexual “coach” using a pro and lets go to the video porn tape…………..as Warner Wolf might say…….its on you……….not the NHL…….not the league……..not white male cisgender male supremacy…….its on you

    The outrage over this story is suspect and I would not have known that if only for that PDF you provided about the case…….Sean with the outrage in the media I thought this was a case of actual manhandling type rape……..turns out it was not even close……….but if we got a reason to destroy the reputations of cis white males and their culture, why not get on board

    Sean, last night was the stage of booze an old pal of mine described as the……..”and another thing”………stage of the drunk trip………….because you are drunk and ranting and going………and another thing I hate


    My Gallant Hero

  5. A different version

    If the players on Chicago or any team in the NHL knew there was some predatory sexual behaviour towards some rookie……..dont you think some stalwart on that team would literally beat the shit out of this motherfucker and straighten it all out…….its absurd………and I would not blame this team or any other because their is a Barry Beck on every team Sean

    Sean I know this is not your bag musically………..its not mine either but listen carefully

  6. Orla again

    Sean this is all Gaelic and I have no idea what the lyrics mean but somehow I know its important


    This whole shit show story about Kyle Beach………..if Quennville copped out that’s on him………but on any team in the NHL there is a Barry Beck………..that would never put up with shit

    1. Zap –

      I’m in Seattle on a shitty lap top so it’s hard to respond to everything, I’ll give a better response once I get home on my home computer. That said, you’re definitely fired up about this Beach story, such a shame this happened and the offender gets off the hook.
