Scouting Report: The last time the Rangers played the Senators, the Rangers blew a 4-1 lead in the third period en route to a 5-4 loss in the shootout. That was the Zenon Konopka game, where he hit Artem Anisimov cleanly, but still received a major/match penalty. The Rangers scored twice on that ensuing powerplay. The Senators still won the game despite the bad call.
The Sens, as Suit mentioned last time, play a 1-2-2 hybrid trap system. The...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
We had some technical difficulties with the blog last night, so we were unable to post a recap right after the game. Artem Anisimov was the star of last night’s game, even if he didn’t get the Broadway hat. Here are your truncated bullets:
Anisimov forced the turnover on the first goal, forced another turnover and got the puck to the net on the second goal, and made a simple...
Erik Christensen could be one of the most infuriating New York Rangers skaters of all time. When he wants to be, Christensen is one of the most skilled players on the team. The problem is of course the phrase “when he wants to be.” During his first seven games of the year, Christensen was invisible, and played poorly both with the puck and without the puck. The last four games...
John Tortorella talks to Blueshirts United about Dan Girardi's importance to the Rangers..."He doesn't get talked about too much in the league or around here, but I think he is one of the most underrated players in our game. Danny doesn't say much, he's a pretty quiet kid, but how he plays in all the situations he's put in is a tremendous learning tool for...
While Anton Stralman did participate in his first practice with the Rangers today, Steve Zipay reports that he will not be in the line-up tomorrow when the Blueshirts face the Hurricanes at MSG.John Tortorella feels he needs a better understanding of the system....a little surprised with this decision. Thought Woywitka made a bad play on Ottawa's second goal last night and hasn...
… it’s amazing how a win changes the mood of Torts.
… AA totally deserves the Broadway Hat after the win against Ottawa. He absolutely had his best game of the season and should have had 3 assists on the night.

In a less than stellar game, the Rangers rode the G.A.S. line along with the continued fine of Dan Girardi plus solid goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist to their fifth straight victory; a 3-2 win over Ottawa on Wednesday.
For all the consternation that was given to coach John Tortorella moved Brad Richards down a line and Derek Stepan up to the top grouping; it's only fair...

New York, November 9, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that forward Mike Rupp underwent successful surgery earlier today to repair a torn meniscus in his knee, and is expected to be sidelined four to six weeks. The procedure was performed by Dr. Andrew Feldman at the NYU Langone Medical Center Hospital...
Marian Gaborik scored twice, Derek Stepan had a goal and two assists, and the New York Rangers extended their winning streak to five with a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 29 shots for New York (8-3-3), which hit the road for the first time since a 4-1-1 homestand.

Game 14. Ya boys on a four-game winning streak.
The prediction contest is now officially closed.
Don’t forget this is a 7:30 starter.
The Rangers lost to the Senators in that hideous game on Oct. 29, in which they blew a 4-1 lead in the final 10:42 of regulation, then lost a breakaway contest that was held after the hockey game ended.
Also in that game, Zenon Konopka...
Holy Turnover City
Justice done to Sean Avery?
Lost one for the Gipper
