Is a Chris Kreider recall imminent?

Scott Levy/NHLI via Getty Images Though he was last year’s playoff hero, Chris Kreider got off to a tough start with the CT Whale during the NHL lockout, and his confidence was at an all-time low when he joined the Rangers for the start of the NHL season.  Kreider had been asked to round out his game in the AHL and the learning process was more difficult than he may have expected...

Around the Farm: Kreider scores in CT’s blanking of Manchester

Chris Kreider scored the first goal for the Connecticut Whale of the AHL in their 3-0 win over the Manchester Monarchs (LA Kings). Kreider’s goal, a shorthanded goal, was the eventual game winner, scored on a breakaway. Other goals were scored by Brandon Mashinter (on the powerplay) and Andrew Carroll. Kyle Jean, Kris Newbury, Andrew Yogan, Logan Pyett, and Mike Vernace all added...

Around the Farm: Loss sends Ceresnak and Peterborough home

Peter Ceresnak now holds the dubious distinction of being the only Rangers prospect to miss the playoffs in his respective league. Ceresnak, a member of the OHL’s Peterborough Petes, lost their final game of the season last night to Brampton by a score of 5-2. The Petes missed the playoffs by a single point, and are one of four teams in the OHL to miss the playoffs. Ceresnak did...

Around the Farm: Thursday/Friday roundup

I had eye surgery on Friday, so I was unable to get the ATF yesterday. This post will cover all games played by the Rangers prospects on Thursday night and Friday night. Today’s (Saturday’s) games will be covered tomorrow, as per usual. The playoffs –or playoff type scenarios– have begun for almost all of the Rangers prospects. Oscar Lindberg and Jesper Fasth have begun their...

Goal Breakdown: Rangers stink it up in Pittsburgh

Well, the Rangers got dominated in Pittsburgh today. We can’t even say it was unexpected. The Rangers were absolutely dominated in the first period to the tune of a -24 Corsi (33 shot attempts for Pittsburgh, 9 for the Rangers). It was a miracle that the Rangers were only down a goal in the first, mostly due to the play of Henrik Lundqvist. That said, the entire team –including...

Rangers Talked Gaborik Trade With Vancouver; Interested in Perry?

During a segment on Hockey Night In Canada's "Hot Stove Tonight," Elliotte Friedman says that the Rangers might have discussed a potential trade for Marian Gaborik with the Vancouver Canucks, but it wasn't a good match. Friedman adds that as part of his limited no trade clause Gaborik has given the Rangers 10 teams he cannot be traded to. Here's the...

It’s about execution, not coaching

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images The Rangers succeeded last year because they executed. They followed the system, they executed and they won. Many are looking at the coaching staff for the three game slide, but in reality it’s about execution from the players. It’s been widely known that coach Tortorella uses a 2-1-2 forecheck, which is not a defensive system. It’s a bit of a misnomer...

Something Doesn’t Add Up

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, It doesn’t compute that Marian Gaborik can’t thrive playing under Tortorella’s defense-oriented, hard-on-the-puck philosophy; not when the winger scored 40 or more goals in two of his first three seasons playing for this coach. But it also does not compute that Tortorella would have shifted Gaborik, who had spent his entire career...

Connecticut Whale 3, Springfield Falcons 2

By Wil Goldsholl Hartford, CT, March 17, 2013 - In the Connecticut Whale locker room on Saturday night, Jason Missiaen’s goaltending partner, Cam Talbot, gave a shout in passing, “There ya go, Mish! Big as a house!” The mild-mannered, six-foot-eight goaltender gave pause to flash a grin before continuing to praise his defense for help with rebounds and screens. The Chatham...

Hurricanes-Rangers Preview

The New York Rangers aren't pointing fingers anywhere but at themselves for their slump, which has dropped them out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture. They'll attempt to get back on track Monday night by earning a sixth straight victory over a Carolina Hurricanes team trying to end its own skid that has it fighting to reclaim the Southeast Division's top spot...

Connecticut Whale 3, Manchester Monarchs 0

By Wil Goldsholl Hartford, CT, March 16, 2013 - Six days’ rest proved key for the Connecticut Whale, as they picked up a critical 3-0 win over the Manchester Monarchs on Saturday night in Hartford. Manchester, sitting in the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference prior to the game, has not bested the Whale, who moved into a tie for seventh with the win, at the XL Center this...
