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 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...
Islanders assistant coach Brent Thompson was given a two-game suspension by the NHL on Friday for abusive comments he made following New York's overtime loss to the New York Rangers on Thursday night.
Thompson was assessed a game misconduct after the Rangers beat the Islanders with a power-play goal by Marian Gaborik.
The NHL said in a statement that Thompson will miss the...

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...

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...
After beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-1 at Madison Square Garden on March 1st to snap a four game losing streak the New York Rangers have embarked on possibly their best and certainly most consistent week of their shortened 2013 season. With five home games over this period since the Lightning game , the 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.
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...
In a rematch of last season’s Eastern Conference quarterfinals, won by the New York Rangers in seven hard fought games, the Rangers and Ottawa Senators met up at Madison Square Garden, where the Sens have dominated in recent years. Ottawa came in having won five straight regular season games at the Garden with an astounding 11-1-1 [...]
After splitting the first two contests at Madison Square Garden, the New York Rangers and the New York Islanders renewed their love affair at the Nassau Coliseum for the first time this season. With only two points separating these interstate rivals, the Islanders on the outside looking in for the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spot, points [...]
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...

It is that time of the year where teams with New York Ranger or New York Islander prospects are doing scoreboard watching. With all the jockeying for playoff seeding going on at this time of the season you had better believe that just like their fans, the players and coaches are keeping track of what the other teams are doing with some exceptions...
Well, it certainly took them long enough!
22 games into this year’s NHL season, the Rangers have finally started to come around. Not exactly in terrific position in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, but with a three-point lead on ninth-seeded Winnipeg and two points below sixth-seeded Ottawa, New York finally is back on track.
The biggest reason for the Blueshirts finding...
