Roberto Luongo is one of the most beloved and hated players to ever play for the Vancouver Canucks. He’s the best goalie the team has ever had (with apologies to Kirk McLean and Richard Brodeur), has been a Vezina finalist, a Hart Trophy finalist, won a gold medal and almost won a Stanley Cup in his 5+ seasons in Vancouver. Last year might have been his best season statistically...
… both the Ryan McDonagh goal and McDonagh’s pass to set up Gaborik’s goal were a thing of beauty. We also have to mention the amazing play of Daniel Girardi. Also some honorable mentions have to go to the rest of the defensive unit. Erixon, Eminger and Woywitka had very good games for the Rangers. [...]
“(Brad Richards) gave it to me. Someone bought it in Europe, and it’s going to be our winning hat this year! We call it the Broadway Hat! Someone has to wear it after each win, and today was my turn. I am going to try and wear this hat every game. That’s going to be [...]

But that’s a 16-game season, and a loss is pretty big, and a string of losses can be season...
Henrik Lundqvist made 40 saves, and the New York Rangers broke open a scoreless game with four goals in the third period to beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 on Tuesday night for their first victory of the season.
Mike Rupp started the scoring 2:22 into in the third, and Lundqvist did the rest just as he did in the first two periods in keeping the Rangers in the game.

After a long stretch of rehab from the torn labrum suffered during last season’s Stanley Cup playoffs, Ryan Kesler is apparently ready to return. From Iain MacIntyre at the Vancouver Sun:
Ryan Kesler’s path back to the Vancouver Canucks’ lineup has been cleared with the reassignment of sophomore defenceman Chris Tanev to the AHL’s Chicago Wolves, opening a spot on the National...
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The dirty old chapeau atop Henrik Lundqvist's head was a crown fit for a King.
Because on a night the Rangers were in desperate need of a victory after going the first three games and what seems like a million miles without one, it was...
The Vancouver Canucks finally got their power play clicking in their last game. The return of Ryan Kesler could help the club's special teams make even greater improvements.
Kesler is expected to make his season debut Tuesday night when the Canucks host a winless New York Rangers team beginning a trek through Canada before finally stepping on home ice next week.
… via the boys over at Crossing Broad. Very pricey but this may only happen once so you have to live for today and check out the Rangers and Flyers at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Make sure you study this chart. It will be VERY important for the fans trying to dig up [...]
