What’s up everyone and welcome to another blog here on BlueCollarBlueShirts.com. Tonight, I attended the Rangers vs Devils preseason game. The best thing about preseason is that you can sit bougias for really cheap. I was able to score Delta Club tickets for 75% off using the old Stubhub trick. To use a line from […]

What’s up everyone and welcome to the first game review/thoughts blog of the 2016-2017 season. Sure it’s only preseason, but what a feeling it was to walk into MSG and feel that sheet of ice.

I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! Miss me? I haven’t written a blog in three months. I have gotten emails and tweets asking if this blog is still alive.

When the World Cup of Hockey was first announced, I was not eagerly anticipating it. In fact, I wasn’t even planning on watching it, because many of the games were on at 3PM EST, a time I’m usually at the real job. However, my work schedule lightened up a bit, so I was able to […]

Another NHL season will be here in two weeks time, give or take, and like many fans, I like to predict who will finish where. Last year, while many of my NYR predictions came true (early exit, Lundqvist can’t carry the team to the cup, Stanley Cup window is closed) I was hit or miss […]

Here’s a different blog than usual, as I express my utter contempt for James Dolan and the greedy NY Rangers organization. I’ve talked a lot about my disgust for Dolan over the years.

However one name supercedes them all, yet doesn’t have his last name hanging in the MSG rafters. That man is no other than the greatest Ranger of them all, Frank […]
