The New York Rangers under John Tortorella preach accountability to their players. If you aren’t playing well you may not be playing at all. Take Brad Richards for example; Thursday night Tortorella’s favorite son played one shift in the third period after struggling through another mostly uninspired performance in periods one and two. I have [...]

Rangers recall Chris Kreider

Chris Kreider’s stay in Connecticut was relatively short, at least for the time being, as he was recalled by the Rangers. From several accounts, Rick Nash appears to be sick –as he had to bail on the season subscriber forum last night– so Kreider will be replacing him in the lineup if need be. Kreider played in last night’s 4-1 win for the Whale, finishing with a shot on...

Practice Notes: Boyle back in the lineup, Kreider appears to be scratched

Per Jim Cerny, Torts did some re-shuffling of his lines at practice. The biggest move appears to be inserting Brian Boyle back into the lineup, and scratching Chris Kreider. Boyle was centering a line with Taylor Pyatt and JT Miller. This move is likely about two things: Getting Boyle back in the lineup, and giving Miller his fifth and final game as a way to rebound from his poor...

Musings; Rangers attack the Island edition

I am Nash. HEAR ME ROAR It’s Musings day. I’m in Germany as you read this  on a game day, so enjoy. Unfortunately the Islanders game is the first game I’ll not have caught live this year to any extent but I’m sure you’ll all cope without me. The Rangers win in Boston; if that finishes 3-0 then half of Ranger nation will be booking time off to attend the Cup parade. It...

Rangers sign G Cam Talbot to a two-year extension

Renaud Lavoie is reporting that the Rangers have signed goalie Cam Talbot to a two-year contract extension tonight.  Talbot is 18-19-1 with a 2.56 GAA and a .918 SV% with the CT Whale this season, where he has played since 2009.  The signing indicates the Rangers have seen a (very) small glimmer of hope that Talbot could be the heir to the throne, but the organization still needs...

Press Release: Rangers Assign Chris Kreider to Connecticut

New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has assigned forward Chris Kreider to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL). Kreider, 21, has registered one goal and one assist for two points, along with four penalty minutes and a plus-two rating in seven games this season. [...]

Is John Tortorella The Favorite To Coach Team USA?

from Jeff Z. Klein and Stu Hackel of Slap Shot at the New York Times, If the N.H.L. continues to make progress in talks with Olympic officials aimed at sending its players to the 2014 Games in Sochi, Russia, one big question looms. Who would coach the United States team? Ron Wilson, who coached the Americans to a silver medal at the Vancouver Games in 2010, is a contender...

Too Many Men Penalties Have to Be a Practical Joke

Through 12 games this season, the Rangers have six, count em, six too many men on the ice penalties. Yes, that means the Rangers have a 50% chance of being assessed one tonight. I didn't think a team could do that if they tried. It's the most basic part of the game of hockey. I remember learning how to properly administer a line change in Pee Wee hockey. And it's...

Kreider sent to Whale

Per Katie Strang, Chris Kreider has been sent down to the Connecticut Whale.  She claims that the organization doesn’t want him sitting in the press box.  Looks like J.T. Miller will stay with the big club and see a year burned off his ELC. Tweet

Maintenance Day for Nash; Torts Talks Kreider Demotion

Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Rick Nash was given a maintenance day today as the Rangers prepared to take on the Washington Capitals at the Garden tomorrow. John Tortorella told Gross that Nash has played a lot hockey and needed the rest. Stu Bickel took Nash's spot on line rushes today. Lines stayed the same otherwise... Gaborik-Richards-Cally...

ATF: Fogarty with a sick goal in losing effort

Steven Fogarty (2011, 3rd) made the highlight reels last night after his #Nashty goal for Notre Dame. Fogarty, who was drafted using the third round pick the Rangers got for Evgeny Grachev, received a pass at the blue line, dangled around a defenseman, then deked around the goalie for the goal. We have the video below for your amazement.  The goal begins around the 2:00 mark of...

Monzo’s Thoughts on the Blueshirts

Brian Monzo, a producer and hockey writer at WFAN as well as a good friend of the blog, was kind enough to take time out of his very busy schedule to give us his thoughts on the New York Rangers' play to date: PH: I know it is still early on in the season but what are some of your general thoughts on the Rangers' play so far? BM: I think they've played good at times...

Rangers Not In on Ryan O'Reilly

The Internet has been percolating over the last two days about restricted free agent Ryan O'Neill and his potential destination as his contract negotiations with the Colorado Avalanche have gone completely sour. The Avalanche are notoriously stingy and, with Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog needing pay days down the line, O'Reilly has become expendable. Hypothetical...

Seven Minutes of Poor Play leads to 4-3 Shootout loss for Blueshirts

Had it not been for a terrible span of seven minutes in the second period, the New York Rangers may have never lost 4-3 to the New York Islanders in a shootout at Madison Square Garden. After going up 2-0 in the first period, the Rangers stopped skating and allowed the Islanders to skate all over them for the first seven minutes. The result was three quick goals and the loss of...

Islanders 4, Rangers 3, SO

The New York Rangers (7-5-1) loss to the New York Islanders (5-7-1) by the score of 4-3 in a shootout. For a box score go to Yahoo! Sports. ... first off, sorry for the late recap. Bad night for the Rangers, even worse for TheNYRBlog. My kids have had the flu all week and it hit me last night, while Adam, who was going to fill-in, lost internet access. Just a complete cluster...
