Hartford, CT, February 17, 2012 - The Connecticut Whale defeated the Springfield Falcons, 6-3, Friday night at the XL Center. Andre Deveaux scored twice for the Whale, including the game-winner, as did Ryan Bourque, and Mats Zuccarello (1-2-3), Kris Newbury (0-3-3) and Jonathan Audy-Marchessault (0-3-3) all recorded three points, in Connecticut’s sixth win in seven tries (6-0-1-0).
Connecticut scored three unanswered third-period goals, and would take the lead for good on Deveaux’s second goal of the night, coming at the 8:05 mark of the final frame.
“We had a strong finish, a strong third period and that ended up being the difference,” said Whale head coach Ken Gernander.
The Whale jumped out to the first lead of the game 3:26 into the first period, when Deveaux’s slap-shot from the right faceoff circle beat Springfield goaltender Paul Dainton (20 saves) for his 14th goal of the season. Zuccarello started the play at mid-ice, dishing to Newbury, who made a nice fe...

Brandon Dubinsky has been involved in a majority of the trade rumors that have surrounded the New York Rangers this season, which makes sense since his six goals and 25 points have not lived up to the $4.2 million he is now being paid per year. If the Blueshirts where to go after a Rick Nash or someone who brings along a hefty cap hit, there's a slim chance Dubi is sticking...
While I’m not 100% convinced that the Rangers NEED to make a trade, I’m trying to keep an open mind as the trade deadline approaches. Now, I’m sure many of you have seen you Twitter and Facebook timelines explode with ridiculous trade rumours, suggestions and speculations. We’ve also seen some that make sense. I’ve put [...]

Gross adds that Ruslan Fedotenko was working with the training staff...
When the Blackhawks put their third goal in the first four minutes past backup goalie Martin Biron last night, the chants for Henrik Lundqvist came raining down from the Garden faithful.
But Rangers coach John Tortorella stuck with Biron, even after he gave up a fourth goal 9:38 into...
Contrary to popular belief last night, the world has not ended. While losses are sometimes hard to stomach, I’d much rather have this kind of loss now than in the playoffs. Last night, the Rangers got outplayed. Plain and simple. The ‘Hawks had the Rangers number from the get go. On the power plays, it [...]

According to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch, the Rangers are on a list of five teams that Blue Jackets forward Rick Nash would accept a trade to at this year’s trade deadline. The Rangers have been linked to Nash over the last few weeks, and now it seems as though him coming to New [...]
It’s risky business, breaking up a league-leading team to chase the Stanley Cup. The general manager who did it with the Rangers nearly 18 years ago says dealing Brandon Dubinsky and other regulars for Rick Nash would be even more of a gamble than the roulette he played in...
