The Rangers had to have this one tonight. No ifs, ands or buts about it. They HAD to have it. Why? It’s simple, they were playing against an inferior team without most of their “name” players. No Antropov, no Enstrom….ok, well, maybe just those 2, but for a hapless team to begin with, those 2 are enough. The Jets had all sorts of injuries to their defense, and already are having issues scoring goals as it is. They were ripe for the picking, and to be honest, the score wasn’t really indicative of the play. Sure, the Rangers didn’t play their best game, but they probably should have had at least 2 more goals if not for some outstanding goaltending by Pavelec who flat our robbed Christensen of a goal, and had several other beauties to go with it.
Marty Biron probably had one of the easiest shutouts he’s ever had. Outside of the goalmouth scramble where every player possible outside of Pavelec himself was in the Rangers crease, Biron really wasn’t tested all that much. ...

It’s a good look for him. He scored a beauty of a goal in the first period and also logged over 27 minutes of ice time in the Rangers 5-3 win. Really impressed with MDZ’s effort tonight. Photo Courtesy of Pat Leonard, and the Daily News.

Last summer there was a push amongst many to have Chris
Kreider (2009 1st round pick) turn pro even though he had a subpar season at
Boston College. The idea behind it was
that you get him in the professional ranks with the New York Rangers and let
them take over his development. Part of
the theory for some was that Kreider seemed bored with college hockey and was

JOHN TORTORELLA said last Thursday that Wojtek Wolski had reinjured his groin when he was “accordioned” into the corner boards by an Anaheim player.

The New York Rangers certainly bolstered their blue line today, agreeing to terms with unrestricted free agent Anton Stralman. After not receiving a qualifying offer as a restricted free agent of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Stralman hit the market as a UFA. He then failed to sign with the New Jersey Devils following their preseason...
