The Rangers now have six games in the books so far this season and other than Henrik Lundqvist, it’s hard to find any sort of bright spot on this team. They now sit at 2-2-2 which currently has them 11th in the Eastern Conference. After yet another lackadaisical effort against the Oilers Saturday night it might be [...]

Looking for their third straight win the New York Rangers are tinkering with their lineup inserting Brendan Bell on defense and scratching Jeff Woywitka. Replacing Woywitka is not a big surprise as he struggled against Calgary, especially in the third period giving up multiple chances and taking a penalty with just 2:44 left in regulation.
One change the Rangers are not making...
The Rangers need to improve their overall game, which was the message from head coach John Tortorella during this morning's practice in Edmonton before the team flew out to Winnipeg. But where they have been their weakest is on defense and part of that is due to the fact that both Marc Staal and Michael Sauer have been out of the lineup. While there still has been no updates...
According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, New York Rangers defensemen Marc Staal was to being skating this week and it was leaked out by a few members of the media and Joe Micheletti during a Rangers broadcast that the team would update and announce this news. Unfortunately, a day later came and [...]
The list can go on and on when talking about what's went wrong with the New York Rangers so far this season, but when you look at everything as a collective whole, there's one aspect of their game that is missing that has stood out to me the most; their identity. This year's Rangers have been far from the Black and Blueshirts squad we saw exceed expectations in 2010-11...
Having played two games of their western Canada road swing, the New York Rangers earned back-to-back needed wins against the Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames to improve to 2-1-2 on the season. Tonight they seek their third win of the season and the road trip when they enter Edmonton to take on the Oilers at Rexall Place. The Blueshirts have had much success against the Oilers...

If this was last year, I would have been at the game, in person, watching the Rangers battle the Thrashers. Instead I lost my only chance to watch the team I love live thanks to the Thrashers jumping ship and move to Winnipeg, so for that reason I truly despite Winnipeg, the Jets, their stupid maple leaf uniform, and everything to do with that franchise. With that said, the...
From the NYR:
NEW YORK RANGERS POST-GAME NOTES
New York Rangers 0, Edmonton Oilers 2
October 22, 2011 (Game 6, Away Game 6)
Rexall Place – Edmonton, Alberta
-The Rangers were defeated by the Edmonton Oilers, 2-0, tonight at Rexall Place, and are now 2-1-0 on their current four-game Western Canada road trip. New York is 2-2-2 (6 pts) on the season.
I find it amazing that the New York Rangers managed to go 3-1-0 on their road trip through western Canada considering they were dominated for large portions of every game. I said going into the trip that satisfactory would mean grabbing wins in at least two of the four games, but the Rangers did so in three, improving their record on the season to 3-2-2. Six out of a possible eight...
When I was a kid, the New York Rangers were strictly the "B" list. Despite being an original 6 team, when my family tuned in HNIC if the Rangers were on things would eventually end up at the kitchen table (beer, smokes, cards, laughter). The television--a black and white--would be shoved over in the corner when I'd watch with my aunt Shannon and my brother (or by myself...
Ryan Callahan scored a power-play goal and the New York Rangers ended a seven-game road trip with a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night Callahan scored his team's second power-play goal of the night at 8:41 of the third period. Ruslan Fedotenko also scored with the man advantage early in the second period for the Rangers,and Dan Girardi assisted on both goals.
Ruslan Fedotenko did a little bit of everything, backup goalie Martin Biron made a strong first start, and the Rangers bailed themselves out of several long lapses in Monday night's 2-1 win over the Jets (2-5-1) with, of all things, the power play. The Rangers (3-2-2) scored two power play goals after entering the game 1-for-23 when playing a man up.
