Goal breakdown: Rangers score four unanswered goals to down Caps

The Rangers continued their dominance over the Southeast Division today, knocking off the Caps by a score of 4-1. The Rangers started off slow –par for the course– but really turned it up in the second period, scoring twice to make it three unanswered goals (en route to four). Martin Biron was solid in net, and the powerplay continued its success. This was another solid game...

Rangers C Richards returns after missing 2 games

Rangers center Brad Richards is back in the New York lineup Friday night against the Ottawa Senators after missing two games following a hard hit into the boards five days earlier. Richards, who sat out a pair of Rangers wins, skated on his own Friday as his teammates had the morning off, and felt well enough to return. No specific injury was announced, but New York coach John Tortorella...

Gaborik's OT goal caps Rangers' rally

Marian Gaborik scored a power-play goal 42 seconds into overtime, and the New York Rangers rallied for a 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night. Gaborik took a feed in the high slot from Rick Nash, who got the Rangers even at 1 with 5:23 left in regulation, and fired in a shot for his eighth of the season and first in nine games. The Rangers got their third power...

Game 24 preview: Rangers at Capitals

Jason Szenes for The New York Times The Caps, who got off to a horrendous start, are starting to turn things around and sit just five points behind the Rangers for a playoff spot. It appears that the Caps are finally starting to get used to new coach Adam Oates and his hybrid approach to pretty much every style of play. This will be a different game than the last one, which the Rangers...

Rangers use power play to beat Caps

About three hours after asking for more respect from NHL officials, Alex Ovechkin was called for two penalties within seconds of each other, leading to a pair of goals that put the New York Rangers ahead for good Sunday in a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Brian Boyle and Ryan Callahan took advantage of Ovechkin's miscues to give New York a two-goal lead in the second...

Goal breakdown: Senators at Rangers

The Senators played the Rangers tough, as per usual. After the Sens opened up a 2-0 lead, the Rangers showed their grittiness and their willingness to fight back as they tied the game before the first period ended. But in the end, the Sens showed why they are still a playoff team despite being without three of their top players.  On to the goals: Lady luck is mean sometimes. Senators...

Rangers 4, Capitals 1

Losses are inevitable. Even the Chicago Blackhawks couldn't avoid that. So when the Rangers lost to the Senators after four straight wins, the bigger concern was not the loss itself but how the Rangers would respond to it. For the first five minutes of today's game, the response was miserable. The Capitals were all over the Rangers, got to every loose puck, and scored as...

Where's the Secondary Scoring?

In the game recap comments section last night, reader "slapshot13j" asked if anyone knew when the last time a 3rd or 4th line player scored in a game for the Rangers was. While I assumed this was a rhetorical question, TheNYRBlog's James Wrabel actually came up with the answer: February 10th by Arron Asham vs. the Lightning. That can't be. It's impossible...

Senators-Rangers Preview

The Rangers hope to keep rolling as their six-game stay in New York ends, but they haven't had much home success against the Ottawa Senators lately. Things could be different this time with the Senators struggling to find wins on the road.
