Lundqvist proving doubters wrong

When the playoffs started this year, many blogs and writers in the media were questioning the Rangers and their ability to perform as a top seed. It wasn’t because of their skill or style of play, but it was because Henrik Lundqvist “wasn’t a playoff goalie.” Their claims weren’t that far fetched, as his stats in the playoffs did take a bit of a nosedive in the past few...
DOUBLE TROUBLE

Two pucks on ice during game

During the second period of game 2 on Saturday night between the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators, the cameras zoomed in on an odd shape that was laying behind the goal heavily guarded by Henrik Lundqvist on the outside of the net. Shortly after the zooming, it became known by the announcers that the small black shape was actually a puck. The problem, which was immediatly...

Postgame: Boyle, Lundqvist Lead Rangers to Shutout Win Over Sens; Rangers Take 2-1 Series Lead

At last, a sincere playoff hockey game with no shenanigans to take away from it. What we saw at Scotiabank place tonight in Game 3 between the Rangers and Senators was a hard-fought, respectable postseason contest featuring two teams that did not want to give an inch, starting with the play of their respective goaltenders. This time around, the Rangers were the ones to get the late...

Henrik Lundqvist Denies The Senators goals Like He's The US President

  Henrick Lundqvist owned the Ottawa Senators tonight by denying all 39 shots on goal. This is his fourth NHL playoff shutout. Brian Boyle put his 2 cents in by scoring for the 3rd straight game allowing the Rangers to inch past the Senators in game 3 with a 1-0 victory. Of course you need goal(s) to win a game, but I think 99% of the credit should be given to Lundqvist for shutting...

Video: Henrik Lundqvist & Brian Boyle Talk About Game Two Loss To Ottawa

… Henrik looks so disappointed, rightfully so. He was very solid but unfortunately the tying goal that went through was out of his hands. Poor defense on that sequence in my book.  The momentum easily shifted towards Ottawa on that tying goal and the Rangers didn’t look right since that point.  Brian Boyle has been [...]

Is Ryan Callahan Overlooked in New York City?

There is a perception that despite their accomplishments this year the New York Rangers are treated like second-class citizens by the media and fans within their own market. While the Rangers have played consistently strong throughout the season they rarely get the amount of coverage their MSG and seasonal-sport counterparts, the New York Knicks, receive [...]

Lundqvist lifts Rangers to 2-1 lead

Brian Boyle scored for the sixth time in seven contests to snap a scoreless tie 7:35 into the third period and Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 39 shots for his fourth career postseason shutout as visiting New York edged Ottawa 1-0 on Monday to claim a 2-1 edge in its Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.After the teams traded fruitless chances, the top-seeded Rangers finally...

Fantasy Hockey Playoff ONE (4/17)

  Have you ever had the feeling that one goalie changes the game on a nightly basis?  Then you would be quite correct as it seems this year's playoffs always has that one game a night where Goalie A is massively under siege and just flat out steals one.  Last night it was Henrik Lundqvist and his effort led the New York Rangers to a 1-0 win over the Ottawa Senators...

McDonagh Fine

Photo: Brian Boyle Rocking The Broadway Hat

… did Brian Boyle deserve the Broadway Hat? Yes, but I still believe Henrik Lundqvist deserved it more.  Boyle’s goal helped the Rangers win, but Lundqvist’s play in net stole the show and Game Three. Wish they could share it some how!  Boyle has been HUGE for the Rangers over the last few weeks in [...]

Justin Schultz coming back to Wisconsin for a fourth season?

Badgers Herald.com Here is some interesting speculation by the New York Post's Larry Brooks. As a hockey fan, I would actually love the opportunity to watch another season of Justin Schultz who was hands down the best defenseman in the WCHA, if not the country last season and in my opinion, should have been in the Hobey Hat Trick. For some reason the voters left him out...

Rangers rob Sens; Recap

The Rangers gutted out a 1-0 victory over the Sens as both teams proved a low scoring game can be absorbing. Above all it was a goalie duel but the Rangers withstood heavy pressure, particularly in the third and rode their goalie and Brian Boyle to a 1-0 win. A great playoff game; let’s get to the game hits. We’re doing things a little differently from here on in. The recaps...

Pregame: Rangers Look to Gain 2-0 Series Lead on Sens in Game 2

As a playoff series progresses, each game grows in importance. This especially holds true for the top seeded club when trying to go up two games to none on home ice. The New York Rangers had to be happy with the outcome of Thursday’s series opener, as they took down the Senators, 4-2, but the battle they will have to fight in Game 2 tonight will likely be tougher than that of Game...
