The Islanders have now lost 5 games in a row, all during regulation. The Rangers can really capitalize on their struggles and start to climb back to being a conference elite. Ultimately, the only good thing the Islanders have going for them right now is their powerplay, so the Rangers have to continue to play disciplined hockey and manage the puck ...

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...
Despite only being about a quarter of a way into this condensed season, the Bruins and Rangers met for the third and final time this season on Tuesday night in another matchup of Eastern Conference powerhouse squads.
The Rangers got on the board first 10:37 into the opening period when the Rangers new All-Star forward Rick Nash put forth an outstanding individual effort to create...
The Rangers win in Boston marked the night we’ve been talking about since the Rangers opened the season with three losses in four games. Following those games, fans were ready to can Torts, trade Gabby and torch everything Glen’s built over the last few years. Premature panic compelled Dave to write an article titled, “One game does not make a season. I pleaded with people...
This is the type of play that made the New York Rangers want Rick Nash so badly. He singlehandedly made this goal possible with his display of sheer athleticism and awesome hands. All Carl Hagelin had to do was put the puck in the empty net with all of the Boston Bruins defenseman pre-occupied with Nash. If the Rangers can get their act together in time for the playoffs, they...
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...
The Rick Nash trade might eventually define Scott Howsonâs tenure as GM of the Columbus Blue Jackets but it might not prove to be his biggest failure on the job. In the summer of 2011 with Howson doing everything he could to assemble a squad capable of contending for a playoff spot, the Jackets added Jeff Carter to add some goal scoring punch and signed James Wisniewski to beef...
Boston MA. The New York Rangers came in tonight on their second trip to the Garden and their third meeting with the Bruins over the first month of the shortened NHL season.
The Rangers were the first to strike as Rick Nash drove through the zone drawing three Bruins and Tuukka. Nash fell to the ground but was able to pass the puck to Carl Hagelin who finished it behind an out of...
After Rick Nash was held out of practice today because of a "maintenance day, " the New York Rangers recalled Chris Kreider just 24 hours after sending him down to the Connecticut Whale. The move was designed to get Kreider, who was a healthy scratch Thursday vs. the Islanders and sparingly used prior, some much needed playing time.
With Kreider back so quickly, thoughts...
COLUMBUS, Ohio — One playoff appearance in more than five seasons wasn’t good enough for Scott Howson to keep his job as Columbus Blue Jackets general manager.
Howson was fired Tuesday night by John Davidson, the club’s director of hockey operations. Since his hiring last summer, Davidson, who rebuilt the St. Louis Blues, has become the man with the most power in the front...
Rick Nash was everywhere for the Rangers on Tuesday.
Before he fooled Tuukka Rask to score one of New York’s two shootout goals, Nash had an assist that would make NBA facilitator Steve Nash proud. The former Columbus Blue Jacket weaved his way through three Bruins defenders before dishing the puck to teammate Carl Hagelin while sliding on his chest, setting Hagelin up for the...
The past week was a very eventful week of hockey. Here's what you missed.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Rick Nash made one of the best passes I have ever seen against the Boston Bruins on Tuesday. With the Rangers down by a goal, Nash deked around a Bruins defenseman, fell...
The Rangers blew a 3-0 lead, but Ryan Callahan saved a victory in the shootout
The Rangers choked away a 3-0 lead, but were still able to pick up their second win over Boston this season. New York dominated for much of the game, but foolishly sat back in the third period and the Bruins sealed a comeback with 2 goals in the final 1:31. An extremely entertaining overtime period followed...
Tonight’s action featured some great NHL GIFs of a great re-direct goal, a nasty assist, an insane coach, and more.
Brayden Schenn of the Philadelphia Flyers opened the scoring against the Winnipeg Jets with a re-direct tip of the puck. The Flyers went on to win the game vs. the Jets by a final score of 3-2.
Rick Nash of the New York Rangers with a beautiful assist, dangling through...
If there’s one thing the Bruins have shown so far in this shortened season, it’s that they don’t give up–ever. And last night’s 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Rangers only stand to prove that points can be stolen, and enough tenacity from a team can bear good results.
Brad Marchand scored with 43 seconds left to tie the game against the Rangers
That being said, the Bruins...
12:30 p.m. ET: For the second time in six days, the Bruins have made a trip up to Buffalo for another Northeast Division clash with the Sabres.
The B’s start their weekend on Friday night at the First Niagara Center where they will take on the Sabres for the third time already this season. The two teams have split those meetings, with the Sabres embarrassing Boston in their own...
