The Rangers had four prospects in action last night in the NCAA and SEL (Boo Nieves, Steven Fogarty, Oscar Lindberg, Jesper Fasth), and all four were held off the scoreboard for their respective clubs. It’s also worth noting that Brady Skjei was held out of Minnesota’s 5-1 win. It was senior night in Minnesota, so it’s likely he was held out to make room for departing seniors who played their final game.
Be sure to check after the jump for the full scoring lines for the games. Also check out our Prospect Stats page for season long scoring lines.

The Rangers website reports that Brad Richards did not practice the day after he was violently boarded by Patrick Kaleta.
However, in a piece of good news John Tortorella said that Richards will be fine and no one has been recalled from the Whale making it likely that Richards will play against the Islanders tomorrow night at MSG.
Arron Asham (back spasms) was also absent...
Rick Nash was having another Rick Nash type game as he electrified the MSG crowd everytime he had the puck on his stick. And for the second game since returning from injury he scored a goal. His first power play goal as a Rangers to give them a 2-1 lead...

The New York Rangers, coming off a 4-1 home win against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday hosted the streaking Buffalo Sabres, winners of three straight including a 4-3 shootout win at home yesterday afternoon against the New Jersey Devils. Both teams had little changed to their lineup, just the Buffalo Sabres who were without their [...]
On Thursday night in their 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, the New York Rangers fired 42 shots on goal and created offense by not being afraid to go to the net, by not being afraid to put pucks on net and lastly, by following the lead of one of their own players.
That player was power forward Rick Nash. Besides getting on the scoresheet with two points on one goal and one...

I'm going to first apologize for posting this, but I felt it was my obligation to address this non-sense.
Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun reports that Glen Sather is unhappy with the Rangers inconsistencies this season and is looking to shake-up the club by possibly trading Marian Gaborik and adding more grit to the line-up.
Garrioch adds that John Tortorella's job...

Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller had a rough outing on Sunday against the New York Rangers in the shootout. Miller is a very good goalie, but he and the Sabres have been struggling this year. During the shootout, Rick Nash and Ryan Callahan pretty much undressed him and the Sabres were handed their 14th loss (12 regulation, 2 OT) of the year. Might be time for Miller to work...
The Sabres made waves recently when they fired Lindy Ruff after 16 seasons as their head coach. Since then they’ve gone 3-2 under Ron Rolston. Under both coaches, the Sabres system is similar to what we’ve seen from the Flyers under Peter Laviolette, which is essentially two different looks.
The first look is the 2-1-2 forecheck, which the Rangers utilize as well. This is...
