Found May 19, 2014 on Goon's World:
First off, these are hits that need to be removed from the game of hockey. New York Rangers forward Benoit Pouliot saw numbers and shouldn't have hit Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin.All right, but the acting job to sell the penalty was ridiculous, that was worthy of a unsportsmanlike penalty itself. And of course the Canadiens fans wanted a five-minute major on Pouliot. Thoughts?Brutal blindside hit by Benoit Pouliot on Alexei Emelin who headed to the dressing room. He should have been tossed. #GoHabsGo #NYRangers— All Habs (Canadiens) (@All_Habs) May 20, 2014

It looks like Alain Vigneault did a pretty good job managing Henrik Lundqvist this year

Though much has changed with the New York Rangers over the last 12 months, one thing remains the same: the team goes as Henrik Lundqvist goes. During the early part of the season when the Blueshirts were regularly getting crushed by Western Conference foes, The King was not himself. And not coincidentally, during the second half […]

Brassard in for Game Three?

Per Pat Leonard, coach Alain Vigneault was a bit coy this morning when addressing Derick Brassard’s injury. When asked, AV said, “If I were a betting man.” That’s it. So, let’s assume he’s in for Game Three, which is great news for the Rangers.

Media continues to pile on Tortorella, even when it’s unfounded

File this under “the worst thing I’ve read today on the internet”. The media loves (and I mean, loves) the John Tortorella grave dance. Other than the post-game pint, crapping ink all over Torts is their favorite pastime. Which is fine. I get it. Torts is a big meanie. He doesn’t like sports writers. Instead of “NO SOUP FOR YOU”, it’s “NO QUOTES FOR YOU”, which...

NY Rangers attend funeral for Martin St. Louis’ mother

Martin St. Louis was able to put aside the world of playoff hockey and hold a funeral service for his mother France who recently and unexpectedly passed away. In attendance at the Sunday funeral service were all of his New York Rangers teammates. Members of the New York Rangers led by team owner James Dolan depart the funeral services held for the mother of Martin St. Louis Sunday...

Rangers’ Derick Brassard Listed “Day-to-Day”

The New York Rangers may have to continue through the Eastern Conference Finals without one of their best players– center Derick Brassard. Brassard is out for Game 2 against the Montreal Canadiens and he is considered to be “day to day” in an undisclosed injury. Brassard’s injury occurred when he absorbed a heavy body check from Canadiens’ defenseman Mike Weaver during...

Rangers Down Canadiens 3-1 To Take Commanding 2-0 Series Lead

MONTREAL — Henrik Lundqvist made 40 saves and Martin St. Louis scored in the second period as the New York Rangers earned a 3-1 victory over the Carey Price-less Montreal Canadiens on Monday. The Rangers lead the best-of-seven Eastern Conference final 2-0 heading back to New York for Game 3 on Thursday and Game 4 on Sunday. St. Louis scored a day after he and his teammates attended...

Richards: Rangers expect a different Habs team in Game 2

Whether it’s Carey Price or Peter Budaj in the Montreal Canadiens’ net in Game 2, Brad Richards told New York Newsday that the New York Rangers anticipate a steeper challenge after Game 1′s 7-2 win. “We’re going to see a whole different team tomorrow night and we’re expecting a big push from them,” Richards said. As great as the Rangers looked at times in gaining...

The (Carey) Price is wrong, *****! Rangers take game one

After game one, Canadiens forward Rene Bourque said: “we got our asses kicked”. I can confirm, that the Canadiens did in fact get their collective asses kicked in a 7-2 curb stomping at the Bell Centre on Saturday afternoon. Martin St. Louis kicked off the scoring and Rick Nash (finally!) finished it. When all was said and done, the Rangers put up a touchdown to open game one...

Rangers need to find an answer for Pacioretty and Habs top line

The Canadiens played well enough to win game two. If it weren’t for Henrik Lundqvist standing tall during the Habs onslaught in the first period, the game could have been over shortly after it started. During the second period intermission, the knucklehead duo of Keith Jones and Mike Milbury agreed that Max Pacioretty needs to ‘step up’ for the Canadiens. Which is hilarious...

Rangers finally win a Game Two, come home with 2-0 lead

The streak has been snapped. Our long wait is over. The Rangers have finally won a Game Two after winning a Game One. It seems like the last time this happened was in 1927 (was more like 2007 or so), and the “streak” was really no more than sheer coincidence, but hey, they won. And […]

CareyPrice hurt by Chris Kreider, Price's status unknown

Your browser does not support iframes.In re-watching this video, I am not seeing an intent by New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider. Looks like he's coming with speed and gets tripped up by the Canadiens defender. Could Kreider have avoided contact with Price? I don't think he could have base on how fast he was skating. Apparently, the head coach of the Montreal Canadiens...
