The Washington Capitals have a stranglehold on this best of 7 series after taking a 2-0 lead on Saturday. It is only fitting that Mike Green's overtime game-winner came on the powerplay, as the Capitals have been dominant in that regard. The Capitals have scored on the powerplay in both games in this series while the Rangers have been dormant wi...

What, you thought this was going to be easy? The 2011-2012 Rangers came within two points of winning the President’s Trophy and still needed two seven-game series to get to the Eastern Conference Finals, so why would the 2013 version, which had to scratch and...
The Washington Capitals now have a commanding 2-0 series lead over the New York Rangers, thanks to Mike Green's overtime power-play blast the only goal that was able to solve either goalie in this Saturday afternoon matchup.The bounce-back season from Alex Ovechkin has been well documented. I mean,Ovechkin has been on a goal per game pace for his past 24 contests. For me however...
Late in regulation during the Caps/Rangers game, Karl Alzner put a puck over the glass. Many thought it should have been a penalty but...
#NYR According to NHL, puck DEFLECTED off Alzner's stick. Because it wasn't shot or batted, as is the wording in rule 63.2, no delay of game

As this series comes to New York with the Rangers trailing 2-0, the only thing that matters right now is a victory. The Rangers might be getting Ryane Clowe back in the lineup tonight as Arron Asham appears to be scratched, and there’s a slight chance Marc Staal might come back as well, likely for Steve Eminger. Both are critical pieces in helping the...

The Washington Capitals dropped a game in their 2013 Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the New York Rangers on Monday night, falling 4-3 to the Rangers inside the World’s Most Famous Arena. After taking an early lead on a Nicklas Backstrom, the Capitals allowed two goals...
Forward Derek Dorsett has made his debut with the New York Rangers, dressing for Game 2 of their playoff series against the Washington Capitals after recovering from a broken collarbone.
Center Brian Boyle also returned from a right leg injury for Saturday's game.
Dorsett was thought to be done for the season when he was injured March 7 on a hit by Andrew Alberts in the Columbus...
NHL Playoff hockey is full of “dirty” goals. New York Rangers forward Derek Stepan collected a “dirty” goal on Monday night to give the New York Rangers a 4-3 win and cut their series deficit with the Washington Capitals to 2-1. It was a pretty goal if you are a hockey grinder, it is the kind of goal that can change momentum. Only time will tell.

Corny headlines day 2 but as the OHL Finals shifted to the home of the Barrie Colts for game 3, the advantages of home ice played a key role in helping Barrie earn a 6-3 win over the London Knights and a 2-1 series lead.
Mitchell Theoret (NYI 2011 7th) of the Barrie Colts got the nod to start the game as did Tommy Hughes (NYR 2013 UFA) but while...
We've all laughed at ESPN's hockey coverage, or lack of hockey coverage, for the past several years. When the network does try to cover the game they usually fail miserably, relying on analysts that have no experience and no business offering insight on the NHL.
Here they failed just trying to show some highlights from the New York Rangers - Washington Capitals series...
Although their series is far from over, the playoff fortunes of the New York Rangers may have turned for the worse because of how the rule for delay of game infractions was worded and interpreted.
With less than a minute left in regulation, Washingtonâs Karl Alzner swiped at a puck that was shot into his own zone, which went over the glass into the crowd. The Rangers expected...
