The New York Rangers (11-10-4) face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins (18-6-2) at MSG tonight starting at 7 pm. For a preview, click here. “I think we all understand that they are one of the best teams in the league and they have a lot of skill. I think they’re a team that if you […]
The staple of the Rangers for them to be a successful and dangerous team starts from the inside the net with Henrik Lundqvist, out to the defense with newly minted captain Ryan McDonagh. Add some balanced scoring throughout the lineup and you have a Cup contender like we saw during last year’s Cinderella run. What we’ve […]
The man. The myth. The eternally angry legend. Alain Vigneault has been New York Rangers coach for a season plus and has done a tremendous job. He’s changed the way the team plays, maintained an even-keeled persona which can be seen on the ice and, in his first season, led New York to its first […]
This is the Rick Nash that Glen Sather thought he was acquiring from the Columbus Blue Jackets back in 2012. We’re 16 games into the 2014-15 season, and the former 2002 No. 1 overall pick is not only in a tie for the league lead in goals with 12, not only on pace to shatter […]
With the Rangers coming off another embarrassing effort on MSG Ice, the team is 1-3 and searching for answers. And if you browse NYR twitter, you’d think the sky is falling. Perhaps they have a case of Chicken Little? Guess what? It ain’t all bad. Aside from the fact the Blueshirts got off to a […]

– Enjoy him, Pittsburgh.
– What’s more likely: Dan Carcillo makes the Penguins roster or Tanner Glass plays 40 games for the Rangers this season?
The Rangers had quite the number of free agents to contend with this offseason after a scintillating run to their first Stanley Cup Final appearance since 1994. New York has dealt with all but one: John Moore. The 23-year-old defenseman is still without a contract, but the Blueshirts don’t seem to be worried as Assistant GM […]
Buried within a great piece yesterday on Rangers legend Brian Leetch discussing his time as Rangers captain and offering his thoughts on why Ryan McDonagh makes sense as the next potential man to where the ‘C’ on a Broadway Blueshirt, Katie Strang of ESPN offered up a nugget regarding the status of contract talks between defenseman […]

As Adam alluded to earlier today in his post, Kristo’s future with the Rangers is shrouded in some doubt with the signing of Kevin Hayes yesterday and the glut of speedy, small forwards already in the organization. He could be a candidate to be shipped out.
Welcome to August and the literal dog days of the NHL offseason. The good news is we only have a few weeks left before training camps begin and all of us can once again salivate over the idea of watching hockey games. The bad news is it’s going to feel like an eternity before camp […]
As a Rangers fan, I know the ups and downs of what NHL free agency can bring. Especially under Glen Sather’s tenure. Need I remind you of some of the names our beloved GM has splurged money on in the past? I’ll spare you there *Scott Gomez* because, when you *Wade Redden* stop and actually […]
We all know how well players like Ryan McDonagh, Martin St. Louis, the de facto first line of Mats Zuccarello, Benoit Pouliot and Derick Brassard have played throughout the postseason. Some have elevated their game; others have just played consistent to get the Rangers here. Some (namely Rick Nash) have played well, but have yet […]

– If you’re catching up, Michel Therrien told the media today he was upset the Rangers broke a ‘gentleman’s agreement‘ between the teams not to watch practices. Not only does this seem to be a gamesmanship tactic by Therrien, but his own GM Marc Bergevin denies the agreement ever being communicated.
– No, this is not an attempt to promote myself in my own blog post on the site I write for. Yes, this video is awesome, especially the part where Glen Sather just randomly shows up.
– Nice try, Michel.
309 career regular season. A gold medal for Sweden in the 2006 Winter Olympic games and silver medal this past February. A Vezina winner in 2011-12 and four-time finalist. Henrik Lundqvist has accomplished a tremendous amount in his nine-year career and shows no signs of halting his meteoric rise to the top of every goaltending […]

I couldn’t agree more. Slaying the Penguins would not only be his most impressive playoff accomplish to date, but perhaps elevate his confidence to that next level needed in the postseason. We’ll soon find out.
January 4, 2014 was an interesting day. The Rangers sent a seventh-round pick to the Kings for sparsely used forward Dan Carcillo because the team recognized at the time a need for more of ‘grit’ and ‘toughness’ — two overly valued hockey player traits. It certainly was an interesting move at the time around the […]
It’s always a fiery debate amongst New York Rangers fans and even bloggers/beat writers/social media presences etc.: standing up for teammates when they’re the target of a questionable play. The Alex Burrows/Ryan McDonagh incident has seen its fair share of debate since Tuesday night. Now you add ex-NHL referee Paul Stewart into the mix. He […]
If the title of this article is a bit jarring to you, then read the following tweet provided by Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun who recently spoke to Alex Burrows about the incident from Rangers/Canucks game Tuesday night: Listen, I’m not a fan of Burrows or his hit on McDonagh from that game. I […]
