Staal's Status Unknown as Rangers Continue to Fish for Defensive Aid

The Rangers have remained scarily quiet on the status of defenseman Marc Staal since it was reported that he would not make the trip to Europe earlier in the month to begin the season due to post-concussion symptoms. We were given a false lead to what many thought would be an update on Staal last week, but once again, not a word was given from the team. Outside of the organization...

Analyzing the Rangers So Far

Last weekend I took part in a Rangers blogger roundtable discussion with my fellow bloggers, analyzing the first five games of the New York Rangers 2011-12 season. Another one of these will be posted after every five games of the Blueshirts' season, so look for another next week.  The roundtable was done in Q and A form, so below are some of the questions along with my answers...

Musings: The Sauer Effect, Refs vs. MSG, & More

Sorry for the delay, we usually aim to post these things around 7a, but Dave is in California for work, Chris is already serving beer in the UK, and my commute doubles in duration every time it rains. Anyway, here are some quick thoughts before we prepare for the opener tonight. Feel free to chime in below… Amateur Hour The other day we provided video of Adam Mair delivering an...

Rangers' marathon trip finally over

There is no place like home.That is something that the New York Rangers are probably saying to themselves after completing a season opening 7-game road trip that began in Sweden and ended in Winnipeg.The Rangers' lengthy road trip started on Sept. 27 when they toured Europe during the pre-season.

First day in the new digs

Needless to say, the Rangers would have been perfectly happy coming home to the old arena after the trek they’d just completed. But to come home to the new lockerroom, new benches, and a one-third renovated Madison Square Garden for the home opener tomorrow, and for Brad Richards to be making his home debut, and for Ryan Callahan to be playing his first home game with the ...

Trade Zuccarello?

Mats Zuccarello has a lot of talent, an abundance of skill and plenty of vision, but until he strings a few quality performances together at the NHL level doubts will remain about his ability to stick in the big league. Given the prospects coming up through the system, Zuccarello is in danger of becoming increasingly irrelevant in New York. Regardless of whether you think Zuccarello...

Swedish Meatballs - Maple Leafs @ Rangers Post Game Thoughts…

Let’s call it as it is shall we? Henrik Lundqvist was flat out putrid tonight. It kinda reminded me of this video I saw years ago about Uncle Daddy: Henrik Lundqvist looked like he couldn’t make a single clean save on anything long. Not counting the 4 awful goals he gave up, there were countless shots where he gave huge juicy rebounds right into the slot, and one save where...

The day between the odyssey and the home opener

I’m going to attempt to get into NYC for the Rangers practice at the partially renovated Garden this morning. Can’t promise I will actually get there, but I will try. And if I do, I’ll have some sound from there. —————————— MSG Network has a whole lineup for tomorrow’s big hockey day at the new-look Garden. Here’s the schedule: 10:00 a.m. – “MSG’s...

Rangers finally to play first home game (AP)

After seven games in three countries and about a month away from home, the New York Rangers were thrilled to return to the friendly confines of Madison Square Garden. Friendly? Most definitely. Familiar? Not so much. The Rangers will become the last of the NHL's 30 teams to play their home opener when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

Ken Beckett: Maple Leafs Game Day - Game Nine: Leafs vs. Rangers

Looking to bounce back from a tough loss three nights ago, the Toronto Maple Leafs visit famous Madison Square Garden to take on the New York Rangers. This is the first of four meetings between the two teams this season. Last year, the Rangers dominated the season series, going undefeated in regulation with a 3-0-1 record.
