With Gilroy, Asham and Kreider scratched, Steve Eminger will play 2nd straight game on defense and Stu Bickel will play on fourth line again — Andrew Gross (@AGrossRecord) January 24, 2013 Jim Cerny at newyorkrangers.com adds that Kris Newbury will also be in the line-up. ...i know with a shortened season, it's hard to give Kreider too long of a leash to figure this out, but I thought they'd give him another chance. Although, as I mentioned in my previous post, tonight could get out of hand physically and the Rangers might just be protecting him. ...while I'd normally critique a line-up including Rupp, Bickel and Newbury, Torts has done the correct thing making sure there's enough protection for his skill players from the Flyer goon squad. ...also, what's up with Asham? These are the games he was brought in for and he's missing it for precautionary reasons? Here's Ryan Callahan on Kreider's struggles (via Bergen Record)... ...

What Should The Rangers Do With Chris Kreider?

With the Rangers off to a 1-3-0 start, there have certainly been a number of issues that are cause for concern for Rangers fans. While the team continues to develop chemistry with each other and work on the same problems that have plagued their power play for seemingly over a decade, one of the other [...]

Rangers to Discuss Kreider to Whale; Newbury Recalled

Tickets: New York Rangers Top 5 Games of 2013

By all accounts, last season was quite successful for the New York Rangers. With an Eastern Conference-low 187 goals allowed, the Rangers were able to climb from the 8-seed in 2011 to an NHL-best 51 wins and home ice throughout the conference playoffs in 2012. Unfortunately, home ice wasn’t enough to dispatch the cross-Hudson rival [...]

Bruins’ Put Selves in Early Hole, Bounce Back Well in Loss to Rangers (Video)

Going down early to the Rangers 2-0, the Bruins looked flat coming out of the gate at Madison Square Garden. Marian Gaborik made them pay for their slothfulness, slotting in a pair of first-period goals which prompted a Bruins timeout. However, as poor as the B’s looked in the early going, eventually they got their legs under them and made a game of it, losing in overtime 4-3....

NY Rangers Marian Gaborik scores goal after nice passing from teammates (Video)

Rangers 4, Bruins 3 (OT)

NEW YORK -- Marian Gaborik's third goal of the game, 27 seconds into overtime, sent hats flying onto the rink while giving the New York Rangers their first win of the season and the Boston Bruins their first defeat. Gaborik completed his hat trick and the Rangers' 4-3 win at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night by tapping in a deflection of his own miss on a breakaway...

Tuukka Rask Robs Rick Nash & Marian Gaborik With Sprawling Save

With just under a minute left in regulation in a 3-3 game between the Bruins and Rangers on Wednesday night, Tuukka Rask likely single-handedly earned the B’s a point when he was able to surpress a Rick Nash & Marian Gaborik scoring push with an unbelievable sprawling save. Nash pulled off a nifty move to get around Milan Lucic and fire a shot on net, one which Rask turned...

Time To Turn Things Around

After an 0-2 start to the 48-game season, this is something that the New York Rangers need to do beginning tonight with their tilt against the Boston Bruins at Madison Square Garden. The Blueshirts are coming off two games in which they did not play well defensively, took some bad penalties and did not get the offense they need from guys other than Brad Richards and Rick Nash....

Rangers Stu Bickel vs. Flyers Tom Sestito

As a Boston Bruins hockey fan, this is one fight that I was very happy to see. In my opinion, Tom Sestito is waste of skin and if the Flyers want waste roster spot on this guy more power to him. Making a case for Stu Bickel, at least he can be used in the third defensive paring if need be. Lastly, in this case, I am glad that the fourth line forward Sestito was able to pull off...
