Pregame: Callahan-less Rangers Visit 'Canes in Hopes of Building Streak

Getty Losing to the rival New York Islanders in a shootout last Friday was a deflating feeling for the New York Rangers, but they quickly jumped right back on the horse and earned back-to-back wins over the Buffalo Sabres and New Jersey Devils to get a new winning streak kicked into gear. With just 22 games left to play in the regular season, the Blueshirts are approaching the...

Postgame: Rangers Step Up to Defeat 'Canes Without Captain Callahan

Getty The New York Rangers needed players to step up tonight with captain Ryan Callahan out of the lineup with a bruised foot. That they did, as the Blueshirts received contributions form all different sources in their 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Now on a three-game winning streak, the Rangers are rolling with only 20 games remaining on the regular season schedule...

Injured Bolts face East-leading Rangers

Tune into Sun Sports at 7 p.m. to watch the Tampa Bay Lightning take on the New York Rangers. NHL Lightning territory. The New York Rangers have been one of the best road teams in the NHL under coach John Tortorella, a key reason they comfortably lead the Eastern Conference. They may need to withstand another absence from their captain in an effort to continue pulling away. Ryan...

Only Malkin stands between Lundqvist and history

Henrik Lundqvist has a legitimate shot at doing something incredibly rare. It hasn’t been done since Jose Theodore did it in 2001-2002, and only three players (Theodore, Dominick Hasek, Jacques Plante) have done it in the history of the NHL. It requires a spectacular season in net, and a rare season when no skater has pushed to earn the Hart trophy. Hank already has the Vezina...

Sather Learning From Past Mistakes

Scott Burnside at takes a look at the GM of the Year candidates and places Glen Sather at number three...3. Glen Sather, New York RangersWe admit it still seems strange to be considering the reclusive Rangers GM in this category, but there is no denying the admirable work Sather has done in building a gritty, defensively stellar Ranger team that remains the cream of the...

Henrik in Vezina Lead, Hart Consideration

Dave Lozo at feels Henrik Lundqvist is leading the field for the Vezina Trophy..."Take away the excellent season of Blues goaltender Brian Elliott, who has made just 28 starts, and Lundqvist is almost lapping the field in every category. Lundqvist is first in save percentage (.940), has the lead in shutouts (eight), is second in goals-against average (1.75) and his 30...

For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! one likes to lose, but when you're badly out played the way the Rangers were tonight they should be more than happy to salvage a point....i know the Rangers were missing two key offensive contributors...

Rangers/Hurricanes recap

The Rangers grinded out a gutsy win in Carolina tonight, beating the ‘Canes 3-2 behind a fantastic defensive effort and a very solid game by Marty Biron.  Marian Gaborik scored to net his 30th of the year, and his 7th 30 goal season overall.  Seems like the theme lately has been a period by period recap, so I’ll give it a try (let me know which format you guys prefer in the...

Was Only A Matter of Time

Erik Christensen looks to finally be scratched tonight for #mnwiId. 0 points, minus-11 in 12 games will do that to ya— Michael Russo (@Russostrib) March 1, 2012 Meanwhile, the guy the Rangers received in return for Christensen, Casey Wellman, has 3g, 4a in 11 games with the Whale.

Canes could play big-time hockey, just not yet

Hurricanes have nice base for future, but Thursday's loss reminds us they aren't the New York Rangers.

Game Day Musings

It’s another edition of Musings on a game day. How convenient. It’s also the first since the deadline came and went and the deadline day inactivity was a blessing or curse; depending on your point of view of course. The biggest winner of the deadline day for me: Buffalo. I think Cody Hodgson should be a quality center for a long time to come and any team that can get a 1st AND...

New York Rangers (40-15-6) at Carolina Hurricanes (24-26-13), 7 p.m. (ET)

February was certainly a kind month to the Rangers, especially goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.
