Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports these lines from practice today...Anisimov-Stepan-GaborikDubinsky-Richards-PrustFedotenko-Boyle-CallahanRupp-Mitchell-Hagelin...absolute waste of Hagelin's speed on a line with Rupp and Mitchell. Although Hags and Mitchell did have some chemistry when they were first called up....also don't like Prust with Richards. Not exactly the...
The New Jersey Devils defeated the New York Rangers in a close 1-0 game to win their fifth straight contest. Martin Brodeur was solid in net and David Clarkson scored the lone goal of the game. New Jersey racked up points 64 and 65 tonight, inching closer to the top of the Eastern Conference. Not often are hockey fans treated to the opening that this game saw. Two seconds into the...
Russian winger Artem Anisimov emphatically snapped his 17-game pointless streak in a 5-2 win over Philly at the Garden, with a goal, two assists Sunday afternoon.
Ilya Kovalchuk has had an underwhelming year thus far, blatantly disobeying his coach by staying on the ice longer than he should, and failing to live up to his lofty contract but that didn't stop him from stepping up for his teammate Saturday after Zac Rinaldo gave Zach Parise an after-the-whistle slew-foot. The two teams exchanged some hugs before Kovalchuk jumped in and...

Captain's empty net attempt is blocked, but penalty nullifies Rangers' goal
Martin Brodeur stopped 30 shots for his first shutout this season and the record 117th of his NHL career Tuesday night, and the visiting New Jersey Devils beat the Eastern Conference-leading New York Rangers, 1-0, for their fifth consecutive win. David Clarkson gave Brodeur all the offense he needed with a first-period, power-play goal.
PHT: Martin Brodeur helps red-hot Devils shut out Rangers, and he gets a little help along the way.
Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and two assists, and the New Jersey Devils extended their winning streak to four with a 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday.
After a couple of days off, the Rangers took to the ice at the Garden for a pre-Superbowl matinee and threw the Flyers a well deserved 5-2 beating. This was a tremendous game with a ton of talking points for analysis, but I’ll try to be brief. Onto the bullets…
Overall, the Rangers played an incredibly solid game today. They minimized mistakes, took advantage of some soft...
