Derek Dorsett, the only trade deadline acquisition that has not played for the Rangers yet, skated today before practice (per Katie Strang). This was Dorsett’s first time skating since breaking his collarbone on March 8th while still with Columbus. Dorsett is a physical player who would fill out the fourth line with some more gritty play and a slight offensive touch (roughly ten goal potential). Dorsett was originally ruled out for the season, and while skating is a good thing, there’s still no timetable for his return/debut. Tweet

Dorsett to Begin Skating This Week

Steve Zipay at Newsday reports that the one guy from the Marian Gaborik trade we haven't seen, Derek Dorsett, will begin skating this week. Zipay adds that x-rays on Dorsett's broken clavicle indicate that it's healing well. Here's Dorsett... "I've got all this built-up energy and not being able to make an impact here is tough. I missed a few...

Around the Farm: Lindberg, Skelleftea out to 2-0 series lead in SEL Finals

Oscar Lindberg and his heavily favored Skelleftea AIK squad jumped out to a 2-0 series lead over Lulea in the SEL Finals this weekend. Skelleftea won the games by scores of 1-0 (in OT) and 4-2. Lindberg has been held off the score sheet in both contests, but finished yesterday’s 4-2 win with a +1 rating (0 PIMs in both contests). Lindberg is one of three non-AHL prospects...

Brassard: I've never played in a game like this before

Not only did Derick Brassard have a ridiculous saucer pass to Dan Girardi to setup the overtime winner, he almost jumped over the boards when he celebrated... Here's Brassard after the game (via Blueshirts United)... “The atmosphere was awesome. Just to see our fans there like that was incredible. And the game was physical, fast, high-pace all night long. I&...

Goal breakdown: Rangers limp out of Philly

The Rangers came into Philly needing to continue winning to really secure themselves a playoff spot, and did the exact opposite. They laid the proverbial egg, and adding injury to insult, lost Brian Boyle to a leg injury. The Islanders, Caps, Sens, and Jets all won their games, which means the Rangers are now on the outside looking in for the playoffs. I still believe they will hold...

McIlrath Minutes from Boston Marathon Finish Line

We New Yorkers normally don't root for Bostonians, but after yesterday's horrific events at the Boston Marathon, I think it's safe to say that we're all praying for Bean Town right now. In what could have been another tragedy for the New York Rangers organization, Dylan McIlrath was in Boston to checkout the race... Wow scary moment. Was walking towards...

Lundqvist, Girardi Help Rangers Defeat Islanders in Overtime Thriller

It has been a long time since a Rangers-Islanders game had a large bearing on the playoff race for both teams this late in the season.  Rangers-Islanders games are always intense and Saturday night’s game at Nassau Coliseum did not disappoint.  Evgeni Nabokov and Henrik Lundqvist were the stars of the show for over sixty minutes, neither [...]

Lundqvist Belongs with the Rangers’ Greats

When looking at the New York Rangers since the 1997-98 season, it is easy to see that for close to decade, there were some rough seasons. The team went seven straight years without making the postseason, had a lot of failed free-agent signings and ended up losing the likes of Brian Leetch, Mark Messier, Mike Richter, and Adam Graves to retirement or trade. For Blueshirt fans, it...

Oh. My. McIlrath.

I have posted numerous videos of Dylan McIlrath going toe-to-toe with an opponent, but last night's tilt vs. Zack Fitzgerald during the Whale's 4-3 loss to the Adirondack Phantoms (Flyers AHL affiliate) might have topped them all... ...now that was a heavyweight battle. Absolute bombs being thrown by both of those guys. I cannot wait till McIlrath is doing that against...

Rangers’ Carl Hagelin slashes the Flyers’ Brayden Schenn in the nuts (VIDEO)

YouTube The Rangers winger Carl Hagelin obviously doesn’t have much respect for Flyers forward Brayden Schenn.  Tuesday night, Hagelin gave Schenn a little “who’s your daddy?” slash to a region no man wants to get hit. Game officials either share Hagelin’s lack of respect for Schenn or were skating with their eyes closed because there was no penalty called on the play.

Rangers-Flyers Preview

Henrik Lundqvist is looking every bit like the reigning Vezina Trophy winner, and that may eventually be enough to get the New York Rangers back to the playoffs. For now, they'll settle with him continuing his dominance of the Philadelphia Flyers. With the Rangers trying to create a cushion for the final playoff position, Lundqvist is expected to remain in net in an effort...

Brian Burke Linked to Rangers

Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun reports that while former Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke keeps surfacing as a possible replacement with the Dallas Stars, he's also been linked to the Rangers if Glen Sather steps aside. ...not a big fan of this at all.
