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...

Claude Julien Admits Bruins Were ‘Caught Off-Guard’ by Desperate Sabres After Failing to Put Game Away (Video)

The Bruins looked the better team for 40 minutes on Friday night, but unfortunately for them, a hockey game takes 60 minutes to finish. The Sabres stormed back against the B’s in the third period Friday, taking advantage of the fact that Boston hadn’t put the game away earlier despite have countless chances to do just that. Afterward, coach Claude Julien admitted to NESN’s...

Rate This Boston Bruins Carved Wood Bear Statue

A.B. Some people prefer Travelocity gnomes, racist lawn jockeys or pet rocks to spruce up their back yards. Die-hard Boston Bruin fans prefer hand carved, 5 foot tall wooden bear-with-a-hockey-stick statues to not only supplement their garden but also keep the neighbors cat at bay. The limited edition Boston Bruins Bud Light beer bottle? Well, that’s just showing off. Vote 5 stars...

Rangers Send Kreider Down to AHL

For New York Rangers' youngster Chris Kreider, this was a long time coming. Kreider, who has struggled with the big club this season so far, was sent down to the Connecticut Whale so that he could get some playing time. The 22-year-old winger played with the Whale while waiting for the NHL lockout to end and struggled a bit there as well. The key for the Rangers' coaching...

What's Happened to the Rangers Defense?

Larry Brooks at the New York Post feels that the Rangers are lacking the defensive structure that defined the team last season. Here's Ryan Callahan on that subject...  “The defensive structure is definitely a concern. It has to be better. We know that the foundation works. It was the basis of our success last year, but we haven’t been the same tight unit that...

A deeper look into the J.T. Miller decision

Seth Wenig/AP The time has come where the Rangers need to make a decision on rookie J.T. Miller. Miller played his fifth game last night, and once he plays his sixth game, the first year of his entry-level deal will count. If the Rangers send him back to the AHL, and do not use him for a single NHL game for the rest of the year, including the playoffs, then his deal will slide once...

Comparing these Bruins to the '10-11 championship team

The 2010-2011 Bruins won the franchise's sixth Stanley Cup in team history. The 2012-2013 Boston Bruins have gotten off to a roaring 8-1-2 start, currently sitting in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference standings with 18 points. Even more impressive, they've played at least two less games than all but one Eastern Conference foe, the 11th place Winnipeg Jets who've played...

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...

Building on a Win Streak

That is officially what the New York Rangers have and what they will look to do tonight against a struggling New York Islanders' hockey club at Madison Square Garden. After beating the Boston Bruins 4-3 in a shootout at the TD Garden on Tuesday night, the Rangers have now won three straight games and are starting to find ways to gain traction in an extremely competitive Eastern...

12. Boston Bruins at Buffalo Sabres

Didn't we just play these guys? I feel like the Bruins February schedule is home vs NYR, then at Buffalo, then at NYR, then home against Buffalo - rinse and repeat. I'm not complaining though because playing Buffalo is like Michael Jordan dominating a wheelchair basketball game. For a team I picked to finish on top of the Northeast Division - they're ******* terrible...
