The Hurricanes are now winless against both New York teams as they dropped a 4-2 decision to the Rangers last night. The game went about as most would expect considering the Rangers are sitting on top of the Eastern Conference and the Hurricanes are out of the race but are still battling to win games. Despite the score, that's pretty much what this game was like. Carolina managed to turn a 3-0 game into a one-goal deficit but could not complete the comeback as the Rangers put the Canes on lockdown for the rest of the third period an got an insurance goal from Carl Hagelin to put the game away. Hagelin's line with Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik was the story of the game as that line scored all of the Rangers goals, had 15 shots on goal and 13 scoring chances. Not many defenses are going to stop that.
"Good effort" is a phrase that's been thrown around here lately and that's all you can really say about Carolina's play when they lose. They haven't ...

The Rangers have called up goaltender Chad Johnson from the CT Whale, likely to serve as the backup for tonight’s game. Henrik Lundqvist, who was not at the optional skate this morning (starting netminders rarely partake in these) is still likely to start. That means Martin Biron may have some sort of nagging issue that will keep him from dressing.
No need to panic, this appears...

It was crucial that the New York Rangers get a hard-fought win against the Islanders this past Sunday at Madison Square Garden to put an end to their losing streak.

Brad Richards scored twice and Martin Biron, a last-minute replacement for Henrik Lundqvist, made 27 saves as the New York Rangers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Tuesday.
New York's top line had a stellar night. Marian Gaborik also scored and Carl Hagelin had a goal and assisted on both of Richards' goals as they combined for four goals and nine points.
You always have to overpay for talent in free agency regardless of the talent bought but especially for elite talent. With that simple hockey assumption out the way let us discuss Brad Richards and his arrival on the Rangers. His numbers are important (obviously) but he’s not just about the stat line and should not be judged as such.
With a little luck and some extended form (and...

When it comes to feel-good stories in the NHL this season, you’d be hard-pressed to find one better than New York Rangers defenseman Stu Bickel, who began the season playing on Asylum Street in Hartford.
Though Bickel will never be confused with elusive Hall of Famers Bobby Orr or Cheshire-bred Brian Leetch, he has proven to be one of the NHL’s all-time steals...
