Andrew Yogan notched the only goal for the AHL’s Connecticut Whale in their 5-1 dismantling by the St. John’s IceCaps. Nick Palmieri and Kris Newbury were credited with assists for the goal, but that was the lone bright spot for the Whale. Seven players finished with a minus rating –which isn’t all that surprising considering the score– and their goaltending and defense was horrible. Luckily the Whale still sit in second place in their division, having overcome a horrid start to the season.

Gaborik needs to step up, the Rangers need him.
I almost didn’t want to write this post out of protest at losing valuable sleep having to watch the Montreal game Tuesday night. That said, it probably should have sent me to sleep. Anyway, it’s another musings on another game day. Let’s get at it.
Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik need to be much, much better. Inconsistent at...
In a surprising move, the Rangers recalled F Christian Thomas from the CT Whale on Friday night. With Arron Asham, Darroll Powe and Rick Nash all on the shelf, the Rangers had to play Stu Bickel at forward against Ottawa. The team may be looking to avoid that situation again by giving Thomas a shot at the show.
Thomas has been red hot for the Whale and has posted 13 goals and...
As Kevin wrote earlier this morning, New York Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto left last night's game with an apparent injury and was seen limping after the game.
While no update has been given by the team regarding Del Zotto's status, the team has made a transaction today:
#NYR have recalled Steve Eminger from the @ctwhale likely due to Del Zotto injury...
For some reason the Rangers refused to play physical with the undersized Canadiens who should have been a pushover last night, especially with them playing on the second night of back-to-backs.
What makes it worse is that based on Michael Del Zotto's post game remarks it was actually their game plan going in...
"They're coming off the back-to-back. We should...

Great teammate, too many years.
There is nothing more dangerous in sports than a superstar in his early 30’s coming up for free agency. At age 31 or 32, he still shows all the skills that made him a star in his prime and makes GM’s salivate at the thought of that “one final piece”. But we know those skills are fading. If we are really honest with ourselves, we know...
The Connecticut Whale have announced that they have recalled goalie Scott Stajcer from the Greenville Road Warriors, the Rangers ECHL affiliate. Stajcer was assigned to Greenville in late October, and went 8-4-3 with a 2.72 GAA and a .918 SV%. Stajcer was the Rangers fifth round pick in 2009.

Tonight the Rangers are without Rick Nash as they head to Ottawa, who is without Erik Karlsson and Jason Spezza. The Sens, like the Rangers, also had a lot of roster turnover, losing Filip Kuba, Matt Carkner, Zenon Kenopka, and Bobby Butler. All that while adding Nick Foligno, Marc Methot, Mike Lundin, and Guillaume Latendresse.
The Sens gave the...
Despite a third period surge with goals from Ryan Callahan and Ryan McDonagh, the New York Rangers lost to the Ottawa Senators in a shootout, 3-2. For a complete box score of the game, check out Yahoo! Sports.
- Felt the overall effort was better in comparison to the Montreal game (a beer league game would have been better), but we've yet to see the Rangers play at the...
I'm not one to make excuses. And the Rangers especially don't deserve any when they lose to an Ottawa team playing without Erik Karlsson, Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek, who also lost their starting goaltender to injury in the third period. But they were completely jobbed out of two goals in the third period.
The first came on the controversial play early in the period...

Before the season started, Kevin brainstormed how many points it would take to make the playoffs in this lockout shortened season. Kevin concluded that it should take roughly 63 points to lead the conference and 53 points to make the playoffs, or a 1.12 point per game pace. As of today, the Rangers have 18 points in 16 games, averaging 1.13 points per game. That...
Last spring, the Rangers and Senators played a grueling seven game series that at times got pretty nasty with Carl Hagelin injuring Daniel Alfredsson with a hit from behind and Chris Neil concussing Brian Boyle with a hit to the head.
Another hit that may still have repercussions is when Michael Del Zotto caught Neil with his head down behind the net in Game 4 and dropped him...
from Will Leitch of Sports On Earth,
Tuesday night, I went to the Montreal Canadiens-New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden with Sports On Earth hockey writer Joe DeLessio and I was reminded once again how hockey fans are the greatest fans in the world. There is no such thing as a casual hockey fan. When you go to a baseball game, or a football game, or (especially...
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
So this is what the NHL has as a matter of entertainment, after at least three times within a week codifying as legal checks, on which the attacking player finishes off his opponent with a forearm or elbow that drives his prey into the glass or boards.
The NHL has a quagmire like last night’s aesthetically displeasing match at the...
If the New York Rangers want to have any kind of chance to both get into the postseason and go far in them, they will need a lot more offense.
In Tuesday night's 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens, the Blueshirts probably had one of their worst offensive performances. There was no sustained pressure, not enough pucks thrown at Canadiens' netminder Carey Price and not enough...
