#NYR on ice at practice. Clowe is skating again. Nash and Powe not on the ice. Maintenance day for Nash.
— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) May 7, 2013
Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record adds that Clowe did some contact drills today.
...i'm still in shock Clowe didn't play last night, but happy to see the Rangers being cautious with him.
...hoping he'll be ready for Game 4 tomorrow and give the Rangers the same kind of lift Staal did last night.
Gross also notes that the Rangers did not provide an update on Darroll Powe, who likely suffered a concussion last night.
...i've said it since the Rangers acquired Powe, he pretty much gets drilled every game. Someone needs to teach him to play with his head up. I guess Clowe takes Powe's spot if he's ready.
...as far as Nash's maintenance day, I'll believe the Rangers that it actually is just that. But with the lack of power in his skating stride, I wouldn't be surprised if he h...

What, you thought this was going to be easy? The 2011-2012 Rangers came within two points of winning the President’s Trophy and still needed two seven-game series to get to the Eastern Conference Finals, so why would the 2013 version, which had to scratch and...

As this series comes to New York with the Rangers trailing 2-0, the only thing that matters right now is a victory. The Rangers might be getting Ryane Clowe back in the lineup tonight as Arron Asham appears to be scratched, and there’s a slight chance Marc Staal might come back as well, likely for Steve Eminger. Both are critical pieces in helping the...
Game Four was one of the best games the Rangers have played all year. They came out strong, played a physical game, played good defense, and generated a lot of scoring chances. The game itself was very exciting as well, but the Rangers appeared to trade chances with a Caps team that is much more skilled than them. This is what caused the Rangers to blow their initial two goal lead...

Henrik Lundqvist has been named a finalist for the Vezina trophy again, for the fifth time in his career. Lundqvist won the award last year, and will look to be the first back to back winner since Martin Brodeur (06-07, 07-08). The other finalists are Sergei Bobrovsky (Columbus) and Antii Niemi (SJ).
Glen Sather has made a habit out of stealing secondary players in trades (see McDonagh and Prust). And now, with every game that passes it looks like John Moore is going to be added to that list. Here's John Tortorella on the defenseman (via Bergen Record)...

The New York Rangers returned to Madison Square Garden and took Game 3 from the Washington Capitals to make this an exciting series once again. It was a must-win game for New York as a 3-0 deficit would be insurmountable, especially for the team having trouble putting the puck in the net. The role players stepped their games up this in this one, as the Blueshirts were able to...
NHL Playoff hockey is full of “dirty” goals. New York Rangers forward Derek Stepan collected a “dirty” goal on Monday night to give the New York Rangers a 4-3 win and cut their series deficit with the Washington Capitals to 2-1. It was a pretty goal if you are a hockey grinder, it is the kind of goal that can change momentum. Only time will tell.

Prior to Game 2, most of the discussion centered around who might be ready to play in order to add some depth and physical play to the roster. Well, we got half our wish as Derek Dorsett made his Rangers' debut and Brian Boyle returned from a knee injury, while Ryane Clowe and Marc Staal were deemed not ready. The lineup with the returning players to start the game was: Hagelin...

Corny headlines day 2 but as the OHL Finals shifted to the home of the Barrie Colts for game 3, the advantages of home ice played a key role in helping Barrie earn a 6-3 win over the London Knights and a 2-1 series lead.
Mitchell Theoret (NYI 2011 7th) of the Barrie Colts got the nod to start the game as did Tommy Hughes (NYR 2013 UFA) but while...
We've all laughed at ESPN's hockey coverage, or lack of hockey coverage, for the past several years. When the network does try to cover the game they usually fail miserably, relying on analysts that have no experience and no business offering insight on the NHL.
Here they failed just trying to show some highlights from the New York Rangers - Washington Capitals series...
The Rangers used the momentum from early power plays to cut the series lead to 2-1. (MSG)
The Washington Capitals dropped a game in their 2013 Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the New York Rangers on Monday night, falling 4-3 to the Rangers inside the World’s Most Famous Arena. After taking an early lead on a Nicklas Backstrom, the Capitals allowed two goals...
