It was a bittersweet result. The Erie Otters lost 4-1 last night. It was the club's third set back this year. But it was the London Knights that defeated them. As you know, it's those two clubs and the Rangers in a dog fight for the first, third and fourth... Continue reading

Because I had some time this morning. Consider this. Kitchener has played 50 games this season. Of those, the team has never dressed its six most experienced defencemen for one single game. That's Miles Liberati, Brian Brosnan, Frank Hora, Dylan Di Perna, Dmitrii Sergeev and Doug Blaisdell. Liberati didn't join... Continue reading

It was a big weekend for the Rangers. The team went 2-0 and goalie Dawson Carty picked up his first OHL shutout in a 2-0 win against Flint on Saturday. The Rangers also clinched a playoff berth after Friday's 4-1 victory against Niagara in what was probably the team's most... Continue reading

So, the Rangers are off to the playoffs and there are still 19 games to go. Eighth in the west at worst, first at best. That's where the team can finish. Obviously they're aiming to climb high. Either way, it's nice to be talking post-season so early in the season... Continue reading

Finally, the Rangers get a bit of a break. This time they're not the ones coming in off a tough game. Niagara did Kitchener a favour last night by gutting out a 3-2 win against London, who have now dropped three straight by the way. Sounds like it got a... Continue reading

A surging team. A decimated lineup. A road game. A fourth game in six days (third roadie) and the middle of six games in nine days. You get a point in these circumstances and it's A-OK. Last night's 3-2 overtime loss to the Sarnia Sting doesn't sound so bad now... Continue reading

Summer-like conditions while driving to the RBC Centre, uh, make that the Sarnia Sports and Entertainment Centre. Now that's a mouthful. Still says RBC Centre along the concourse though. Either way, it's Kitchener visiting Sarnia. And this isn't the same Sting team that the Rangers beat 6-3 and 3-2 earlier... Continue reading

A late post today. Just got into the office after spending the day driving back from the Soo. Bumper to bumper from Toronto home. Good times. So a 2-1 weekend is pretty good considering the hectic travel schedule. It doesn't get any easier this week. Right back at it Wednesday... Continue reading

It's all over for Ryan MacInnis. And what a run it was. From early November until last night. Points in every game. The irony of it all? Last night's 2-0 win over Windsor was probably one of his best games. But it's all about the team for the captain, whose... Continue reading

Adam Mascherin isn't getting a lot of love. The Kitchener Rangers forward is enjoying a breakout season and is 13th overall in OHL scoring.

What a nice change it is to be talking magic numbers in late January. But, if my math is right, that all important number is six for the Kitchener Rangers - as in six wins and/or Flint losses and they'll punch their ticket for at least eighth spot in the... Continue reading
