Kreider: I’d love to play for Torts at World Cup

Last week, when John Tortorella was named as Team USA’s coach for the World Cup, it immediately raised eyebrows across the NHL and especially here in New York. Given that Derek Stepan and Ryan McDonagh were the Ranger representatives for the Americans in the Olympics last season, it should be expected that the pair will […]


Rangers 4, Devils 3

The New York Rangers defeated the New Jersey Devils tonight by a score of 4-3. For a box score, click here. No, I’m not counting the OT winner. Just about as relevant as Henrique’s goal in the conference final a few years back. Still waiting for that whistle. You can write Oscar Lindberg’s name in […]


Four Thoughts: 9/25

1. In a bit of a surprising move prior to yesterday’s game, AV went well out of his way to criticize Tanner Glass and to let him know that his roster spot is not a lock by any stretch. Says AV, “Obviously he played on our team last year, but there are 15 or 16 […]


Rangers 3, Boston 4 (SO)

The Rangers dropped a 4-3 shootout decision to the Bruins on Thursday night. For a box score, click here. Not important the Rangers blew a 2 goal lead in the third. Hank plays all 3 periods and they probably win anyway. Lundqvist probably wouldn’t agree with this assessment, but he already appears in midseason form. […]

Rangers 3, Philadelphia 5

The New York Rangers dropped a 5-3 decision on Tuesday to the Philadelphia Flyers. For a box score, click here. Two nights, two different teams. Same PK problems. I know it’s preseason.

Roster Released For Tonight’s Game; Possible Lines?

Training camp is just 3 days old and as expected, position battles are forming all over the ice. The backup goalie job, Brady Skjei, Dylan McIlrath and Oscar Lindberg among others. Those guys will be on the ice against the Devils tonight and will have the watchful eye of the coaches as they look to […]


Four Thoughts: 9/19

1. There’s an obvious lack of trepidation with the retirement of Martin St.Louis, but that doesn’t mean his 52 points from last season doesn’t need to be replaced. The Rangers had the third most goals in the NHL season, but only three 20 goal scorers. Rick Nash, St.Louis and Chris Kreider. The Ranger young guns will be […]

Rangers Training Camp starts tomorrow. Feels good to say doesn’t it? The long slog of the offseason is finally over and hope springs eternal once again. For the Rangers, this season represents renewed expectations with the same goal. Getting back… For Henrik Lundqvist, the hope is for the third straight potential deep run to be the charm. […]
