Kristo is off to a very exciting start with six goals and nine points in his first nine games as a member of the Wolf Pack who, despite routinely losing players to the needy Rangers, have started out...

Despite lack of offense, Rangers must stick with current crop.

Kreider is earning his ice time. With all the additional ice time, Chris Kreider is getting better with every game. But he isn’t scoring. JT Miller is beginning to impact games in a multitude of ways. But he isn’t scoring. Generally, the Rangers aren’t scoring. However, despite this team being in a depressing state offensively the coaching staff need to stick with the younger...

Examining the potential for a “splash” trade

AP Photo/Frank Franklin II Over the past couple of weeks, there have been rumblings that the Rangers have been one of the more active teams seeking to make a move.

Lundqvist, Rangers blank lowly Sabres

This 2-0 victory over the Sabres at the Garden on Thursday night marked a return to order in the Rangers’ universe.

Though Cam Talbot’s emergence as a reliable...

Kreider poised to fulfill the expectations

It comes with the territory, with the first-round selection in 2009, the breakout performance in the 2012 playoffs, the washout in 2013 playing for a coach who never even tried to hide his lack of belief in the Rangers’ youngest poster boy. Chris Kreider, you see, isn’t just some guy who is trying to make his way in the NHL, isn’t just one of a crowd wearing Blueshirts. The...
