NYR-MTL Series Affecting Next Season’s Salary Cap

Sharks 1, Rangers 0

Box Score Tough luck loss. Give credit to Antti Niemi and his 41 saves. Came up huge in the face of pressure during the first period. Rangers showed that they are capable of playing up to one of the best teams in the league. Just couldn’t finish. The Rangers outplayed San Jose for most of, […]

Rangers 3, Red Wings 0

Box Score Congrats to Henrik Lundqvist for victory no. 300 for to go along with his 49th shutout, which ties Eddie Giacomin for first all time in Rangers history. Also, Lundqvist now with 300 wins sits one behind Mike Richter for first in that category. Easy win by Lundqvist's standards, who had to be good late […]
