The New York Rangers defeated the Washington Capitals 1-0. For a box score, click here.
Breathe.... being a Ranger fan should come with free ventilators.
Brassard continues to be the Rangers best player on the ice not named Henrik Lundqvist. Not only is he living up to his high draft status, but is also making Sather and his infamous trades look pretty good as well. 2-5-7 this series.
On the flip side of the coin, Nash (1 shot) continues to struggle. His wrist has to be hurting as he continues to favor his backhand when the puck manages to find his stick. Can't think of another valid reason for his absence from the scoresheet.
Richards' game also continues to fall off the proverbial cliff.... 9:34 TOI and nearly half was spent on the power play. Amazing how the Rangers' deficiencies go hand in hand.
The Rangers dominated puck possession in the first 40 minutes before falling back and playing defense in the third. Winning faceoffs consistently in all ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Seriously, is there anything Henrik Lundqvist can't do? This guy has single handedly kept the Rangers in this series. The Blueshirts have scored just 11 goals in the first six games. 11! And because of the Swedish netminders heroics there will be a Game 7.
Here's some of his handy work from the closing minutes of Game 6 including his final second pad save on John Carlson...
It only took one goal from Derick Brassard to keep the New York Rangers alive on Sunday.
Brassard told Newsday that the team’s fans pushed him to do it. “The crowd was chanting to shoot the puck,” Brassard said.
“I didn’t see myself giving a pass to one of my teammates there. I think I had to shoot it.”

Per Andrew Gross, defenseman Stu Bickel and forward J.T. Miller were sent home from the Rangers taxi squad for wrist injuries. This doesn’t have much of an effect on the Rangers, but neither Bickel nor Miller will be available as injury replacements.
Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that tonight's line-up will remain the same, as Marc Staal (eye), Ryane Clowe (undisclosed) and Darroll Powe (concussion) are out tonight.
Leonard adds that neither Clowe nor Powe traveled with the team to Washington.
...never like to hear that two guys with possible concussions weren't able to fly. Usually means that the symptoms...
This was a tough one. The Rangers played a very good game again, but came up short in overtime for the second time this series. After giving the Rangers a 1-0 lead early, Brian Boyle undid his goodwill by taking a stupid penalty by slashing Mike Ribiero. Naturally, the Caps scored on the powerplay, and eventually won it in overtime. Henrik Lundqvist stood on his head again, but Braden...
During today's brief practice, Chris Kreider was the first guy on the ice and and the last off as he did skating and shooting drills on his own, likely preparing himself to re-enter the Rangers line-up in Game 6 tomorrow for the injured Ryane Clowe, who did not practice today along with Darroll Powe (concussion).
Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record notes that John Tortorella...
Mission #1 accomplished, now on to Mission #2.
The Rangers pulled out a thrilling 1-0 win over the Caps on Sunday, buoyed by a goal by Derick Brassard and supported by the constant, stellar goaltending by Henrik Lundqvist. The combination of those two along with a strong forecheck that helped control action better than many games throughout the series and the discipline to stay...
The New York Times is reporting that Derek Boogaard's family has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the National Hockey League.
In the lawsuit, the family says the NHL is responsible for the brain damage that Boogaard sustained during six seasons as an enforcer in the league, and for his addiction to prescription painkillers.
Boogaard was found dead of an accidental overdose...
John Tortorella is starting to really get in the Playoff swing of things. His Rangers are all tied up with the Capitals at 3 games a piece and Torts is in no mood for non-questions. Check out Torts after Sunday’s game respond to a poor reporter who asked for his thoughts. That is where the fun began.

The Rangers are pretty good at making us sweat. This club went to seven games twice (Ottawa, Washington) and six games once (Devils) last season. They went to seven games in 2009 (Washington). There was only one series in this time frame that didn’t go to seven games, and that was in 2011 when the Rangers lost to the Caps in five games. If the Rangers are...
Saying Rangers coach John Tortorella is irascible and unhelpful in a news conference is like saying they have ice at hockey rinks. But Sunday’s after-game chit chat, after the Rangers beat the Capitals 1-0 in their first-round playoff series, was especially charming.
Tortorella has never been one to hide his lack of love for the media, but he was also in a didactic mood Sunday...
Mike Keenan ended the New York Rangers 54 year Stanley Cup drought in 1994. Now, Keenan will try to lead another team to hockey glory as he finally will be back behind the bench. Only this time “Iron Mike” will be coaching in Russia.
Keenan signed a two-year contract to take over as head coach of HC Metallurg Magnitogorsk. Metallurg put out a press release earlier today making...
