Postgame: Rangers Blank Leafs to Take Over Top Spot in NHL

It was quite clear going into this game that the Rangers needed to play better hockey, despite having won five of their last six prior to tonight. They did that and managed the blank the red hot Maple Leafs, 3-0, to again take over the top spot in the National Hockey League.

Disagree With The Coach – Senators @ Rangers Post Game Thoughts…

I respect John Tortorella. Been a fan of his before he joined our team, and an even bigger fan of his now that he is the coach of our team. But I respectfully disagree with not only the way he coached this game, but in his post game comments. He thought the third line was his best line, yet they were on for all 3 goals against. He said AA is missing “everything” from his game...

Rangers-Leaves in review

Shut the front door. That’s how you smother a good team, how you make their night miserable, how you bounce back from a loss. Fact: The Rangers are quickly becoming the team you don’t want to play, because they will make you absorb a beating, fight for every inch and for every puck, and will give you every reason to give up and get to the lockerroom … and with many icepacks...

Senators cool off the hot Rangers

Henrik Lundqvist has been among the NHL's best goalies lately. Ottawa's Craig Anderson won't be joining his New York Rangers counterpart at the All-Star game, but he sure is making a good case that he should be. Anderson made 34 saves for his first shutout of the season, Jason Spezza scored twice and the Senators beat the surging Rangers 3-0 on Thursday night. Milan...

Staging An NHL Game On A Baseball Field Apparently Not Good For The Grass (Pic)

Well, that’s certainly an unforeseen development. It’s hard to argue with the fact that the 2012 NHL Winter Classic — held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia and featured the Flyers taking on the rival New York Rangers — was an unmitigated success. The game was entertaining, the ballpark looked fantastic and a grand time [...]
