Pyatt, Callahan among most disciplined Rangers

Gerry Broome/Associated Press It’s always interesting looking at the penalty statistics each season, and this year is no different. PIMs are a bit misleading, as there’s no real difference between someone who takes undisciplined stick penalties and some heat of the moment roughing/fighting penalties. Ok, fights are easily tracked, but the minor penalties aren’t in the PIMs...

The locations of each powerplay goal scored this season

All NYR PPGs. A very loyal reader, who prefers to remain anonymous, spent his own time and effort to create a graphical depiction of where the Rangers have scored their powerplay goals this season, represented in the image above (click for a larger image). This is fantastic stuff, and when it was sent to me, I noticed some very interesting trends. The first thing that jumped out...

Another glanced off a post on its way in. Captain Ryan Callahan scored 2:55 into overtime, and New York rallied to clinch a third straight playoff berth by beating the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on...

Musings; Rangers need to deal with Hurricanes

Rick Nash needs to be better tonight. Well, it’s another ‘biggest game of the season’. The Rangers need to win today in my humble opinion because the Devils would like nothing more than to play the role of spoiler on the weekend, so the Rangers don’t want to go into that game having to win. Anyway, on to the musings I absolutely loved Kevin’s article about Chris Kreider...

Devils-Rangers Preview

The New York Rangers eliminated the New Jersey Devils from playoff contention in their last meeting nearly a week ago.

A game after clinching a playoff spot with a late comeback, plenty will still be unsettled for...

Torts: This Year Was a Sideway Step; Almost Stepan for Nash

Rangers Mindset Going into Tonight's Game

The Rangers have a few avenues to clinch a playoff spot, but from the players' reaction there's only one way they want to get in... Rick Nash (via Daily News)... "We’re not scoreboard watching.

Surprises Of The Short Season

from Stu Hackel of Sports Illustrated, It's been a season of ups and downs and few teams have been able to win consistently. The compressed schedule and lack of practice time probably have a lot to do with that. A few clubs found ways to maintain their strong play, although not necessarily the teams that some expected to excel when the puck dropped in January. • Many...

Rangers 4, Devils 0

Henrik Lundqvist made 20 saves in coasting to his second shutout of the season, and Rick Nash scored twice for the playoff-bound New York Rangers in a 4-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday in the regular-season finale for both teams. The Rangers still had to wait to find out who they will face in the first round of the playoffs, but they know it won't be the top...
