Found November 17, 2013 on Ranger Nation:
Coming into this game it did not look good for the New York Rangers. They haven’t won in Montreal since 2009 four years to be exact. Carey Price was carrying a shutout against the Rangers lasting more than 200 minutes until now. The Blueshirts defeated the Canadiens 1-0. This game was different, the Blueshirts looked […]

The Michael Del Zotto rumors and the search for a right handed defenseman

AP Photo/Kathy Willens With Michael Del Zotto sitting out tonight against Montreal as a healthy scratch, the trade rumors swirled again.

Without rehashing the entire post, the trade rumors are a bit...

Taking stock of the Rangers at the 20 game mark

Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images About midway through October we asked everyone to have some patience after we started the season less than stellar. As I say every year — wait till the 20 game mark before planning a parade, trade, or handing out pink slips. Not every organization follows this advice of course, but most good ones do. As expected, the Rangers have now made the full...

New York Rangers: Michael Del Zotto healthy scratched and reportedly on the trade block

New York Rangers defenceman Michael Del Zotto will not be in the lineup tonight against the Montreal Canadiens and his absence is not the result of injury. According to Renaud Lavoie of the Journal de Montreal, the Rangers offensive blueliner…Read more →The post New York Rangers: Michael Del Zotto healthy scratched and reportedly on the trade block appeared first on The Hockey Daily.

Rangers-Canadiens Preview

Carey Price hasn't allowed a goal at home to the New York Rangers in almost three years. The Montreal Canadiens haven't lost to them at Bell Centre in over four. Price is expected to be back in net looking to continue his dominance of the Rangers and help the Canadiens to a ninth straight win over their Original Six rival Saturday night. Montreal (10-8-2) has outscored...

Talbot, Rangers blank Habs

Ryan Callahan ended New York's four-year-old goal drought in Montreal and rookie Cam Talbot made 22 saves for his first NHL shutout and the Rangers blanked the Canadiens 1-0 on Saturday night. Callahan scored his sixth goal of the season for New York, which has won eight of its past 11 games. Talbot, who replaced Martin Biron as the backup goalie, became the first Rangers goalie...

Eric Engels: Habs can't light the lamp

Michel Therrien was right about the fact that the Rangers deserved credit for the way they shut the Canadiens down on Saturday, but his satisfaction regarding his own team's game was odd. Not that they didn't put in a strong effort throughout. Carey Price attested to the fact in the locker room after, and made a good point about the Rangers being off since Tuesday, and...

Habs shake up lines at practice

The Canadiens hit the ice Monday morning for practice in Brossard with a complete new set of lines as they prepare to face the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night at the Bell Centre. The new setup had Tomas Plekanec at centre with Rene Bourque and Brian Gionta; Lars Eller with Alex Galchenyuk and Brandon Prust; David Desharnais with Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher; and Daniel Briere...

Talbot’s first NHL shutout leads Rangers past Canadiens

Cam Talbot and the Rangers came into this Habitant House of Horrors and ate it up as if it were made out of gingerbread. “This whole thing here with the New York shadow over this place, I didn’t really get it,” Brad Richards said after the Blueshirts’ 1-0 Saturday Night Special of a victory over the Canadiens. “And I don’t think our new coach did, either. “Before...

Game 19: Montreal….think we can actually win there?

Photo: AP After a disappointing loss to the Devils, the Rangers take the ice in Montreal to take on the Canadiens. This is the first of three straight games against playoff teams, so this stretch will tell us how far along the Rangers have come since their 3-7 start. That said, the Rangers don’t win in Montreal. Period. I don’t think I can remember the last time the Rangers won...

New York Rangers: Rick Nash could return to lineup as soon as tomorrow

Since the third game of the 2013-14 NHL season the New York Rangers have been without superstar winger Rick Nash who suffered a concussion after taking an elbow to the head from San Jose Sharks’ defenceman Brad Stuart.

Jan Levine: Game 19: NYR 1 MTL 0, Curse is Over, In Cam We Trust, LA @MSG Today

The Rangers exorcised some ghosts and demons, shutting out the Canadiens 1-0 for their first win in Montreal since a 4-3 shootout win on March 17, 2009. The regulation win was their first in Montreal since February 3, 2008. A power-play goal by Ryan Callahan, strong goaltending by Cam Talbot, excellent forechecking and four lines rolling were the keys to the victory. It's...

What’s in Store From 1993-94? Rangers Unbeaten Streak at 11, Double Up Panthers

November 16th, 1993: Miami Arena, Miami, FL.:  It was a reunion of sorts when the Rangers travelled to South Beach to take on the expansion Florida Panthers in the first ever meeting between the clubs.  The Panthers were coached by none other than Roger Neilson who was coaching the Rangers as recently as last season.  Neilson was hired […]

Does Mike Francesa not know who the New York Rangers head coach is?

Another day, another fantastic Mike Francesa clip.  This one comes to us courtesy Jimmy Traina and his debut Big Buzz column at Fox Sports (although my heart was set on the Fox Clicks name).  Here Mike in Long Island has a simple request - can Mike Francesa, the sports pope of New York, name the head coach of the New York Rangers.  Instead of answering the question and moving...

Desharnais lifts Canadiens

A tough season for David Desharnais finally produced a bright spot.

''You know what? He played well,'' Canadiens coach...
