Fresh off their loss to Anaheim, the Rangers are hosting the Penguins tonight looking to continue strong play and rebuild momentum. The Rangers didn’t play poorly on Monday against Anaheim, but two early defensive mistakes and stellar goaltending by Frederik Andersson spelled doom. Marc-Andre Fleury is not a consistent netminder, and the defense is improved, but not stellar. That offense is a machine though. Staying out of the penalty box is a must tonight.
The Penguins under Dan Bylsma haven’t changed their systems at all over the past few years. The Pens still play a 2-1-2 forecheck, a hybrid strong side overload/low zone collapse in the defensive zone, an umbrella powerplay, and a diamond penalty kill.
Rangers Lineup (unconfirmed):
Chris Kreider-Derek Stepan-Mats Zuccarello
Carl Hagelin-Brad Richards-Ryan Callahan
Derick Brassard-Brian Boyle-Benoit Pouliot
Taylor Pyatt-Derek Dorsett-J.T. Miller
Ryan McDonagh-Dan Girardi
Marc Staal-Anton ...

A few quick hits this morning...
First off, and I honestly am just reporting this because of the source being very reliable, the Canucks have major interest in Rangers D-man Michael Del Zotto and could be willing to part with a major offensive player to make it happen. Knowing Vigneault as I know you all do....the name shouldn't be too hard to figure out...
New York Rangers’ forward Rick Nash remains out indefinitely with a concussion. He has not played since suffering the injury on October 8th and was placed on IR on October 14th.
This is the second suspected concussion for the Rangers’ power forward in the past 12 months, with the first one stemming from a Milan Lucic hit back in February. The most recent head injury happened...
The Rangers continued their upward trend, defeating the Penguins 5-1 Wednesday at MSG. Coming off a game in which I felt they played better than they were given credit for, New York got off to a slow start, but were bailed out early by Henrik Lundqvist before the offense woke up. The team received contributions from almost everyone - five different goal-scorers and 11 players with...
Brian Boyle scored his first goal of the season and Ryan Callahan added his first since returning from a broken thumb as the New York Rangers matched a season high in goals with a 5-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night.
Pittsburgh had won four straight and defeated New York eight times in nine meetings, but Ryan McDonagh and Derek Stepan scored 1:05 apart late...
November 6th, 1993: Colisee de Quebec (Quebec Coliseum), Quebec City, Quebec: The Rangers took their three game winning streak up to Canada to take on the Quebec Nordiques for the second time on the young season.

This Thanksgiving, the Blue shirts and the Beantown Bears go head to head in a long time rivalry game. In director Bobby Farrelly’s latest, hockey heroes Cam Neely and Mike Richter drop in to add fuel to an already heated family Thanksgiving visit. This Boston and New York family rivalry serves up a turkey day to remember.
Hearing lots of talk out there...
*MacTavish and Lowe were reportedly scouting the Flyers/Carolina game last night in person.
*The Rangers appear to be at a cross-roads with the uncertainty of Rick Nash's injury. It is a huge concern right now and what the Rangers will do next appears to be pointing towards Edmonton and possibly Yakupov.
*The Oilers are shopping hard...

TORONTO (November 5, 2013) – Jason Arnott, a veteran of 18 National Hockey League (NHL) seasons, a Stanley Cup champion, and a 12-time 20-goal scorer – including three seasons when he scored over 30 goals – officially announced his retirement from the NHL today.
Arnott played for six teams – Edmonton, New Jersey, Dallas, Nashville, Washington and...
The Anaheim Ducks and New York Rangers game got a bit chippy towards the end of the second period thanks to Ryan McDonagh checking Corey Perry into the Rangers’ bench area not once, but twice in a row. Not surprisingly the Rangers’ bench didn’t roll out the red welcome carpet for the Ducks’ Perry. Definitely not something you see every day.

Earlier this week, NHL free agent center Jason Arnott announced his retirement. Arnott last played for the St. Louis Blues in 2012, his sixth organization. Drafted at seventh overall by the Edmonton Oilers in 1993, the 6’5” forward was expected to make an immediate impact. Although Arnott posted an impressive 33 goals and 68 points […]The post Starting Lineups: Jason Arnott...
The Broadway Blueshirts welcomed the Anaheim Ducks for a rematch at MSG, last time the Rangers faced the Ducks this season they were shut out in a humiliating 6-0 defeat. The Rangers are a different team from that road trip to hell, and captain Ryan Callahan is back on the team after being sidelined for […]
Longtime NHLer Jason Arnott has called it quits. Arnott had a long career in the NHL after being drafted back in 1993 by the Edmonton Oilers in the first round. He first suited up for the Oilers during the 1993-1994 season where he tallied 68 points in his rookie campaign. Fast forward to 2013 where Arnott has played for a [...]

The Rangers dominated Pittsburgh last night, and will be looking to build on that momentum against a Columbus Blue Jackets club that has lost four straight. The matchup tonight is an intriguing one, as the Rangers and Blue Jackets have been partners in two blockbuster deals. Rick Nash came to New York for Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon (in...
