NY Daily News:
Henrik Lundqvist wore extra padding just inside his left shoulder during practice Wednesday, but the Rangers goaltender insisted he feels “pretty good” one day after being hit up high by a slap shot from Dallas defenseman Sheldon Souray, owner of one of the hardest shots in the league.

Amid a scoring slump of sorts (2 games is hardly a crisis) Coach Tortorella once again swapped up his lines during the Blues game. On one occasion Carl Hagelin played opposite Marian Gaborik. With all the line changes comes speculation about the who, what, where and why’s.
Perhaps the main thing the Rangers didn’t do well against the Blues was stick to their own game. The team...
The Rangers announced they recalled defenseman Tim
Erixon from the CT Whale of the AHL. Erixon has played well in 13 games for the Whale, recording one goal and 11 assists, though he did miss some games with injury a few weeks ago.
The recall does not mean Erixon is guaranteed to play, but could be precautionary since the Rangers have no extra defenders as they head out to St...
Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that John Tortorella expects Tim Erixon to be sent back to the CT Whale after Saturday night's game in Phoenix.Erixon was summoned for the two game road trip in case Steve Eminger wasn't able to play do to an arm injury he sustained while blocking a shot Tuesday night....assuming this makes it less likely that Erixon will get in the...
What is it with professional athletes mixing it up with models as of late? Recently, UFC fighter Chael Sonnen went toe-to-toe with ring girl Arianny Celeste. According to the New York Daily News, New York Rangers rogue Sean Avery got into a bit of a Twitter scuffle with the gorgeous supermodel Kate Upton. Apparently, Upton attended the November 29th Rangers game at Madison Square...

BLUES VS. NEW YORK RANGERS
ST. LOUIS — Rangers defenseman Marc Staal still doesn’t know when he’s going to play for the first time since suffering a concussion in February, but his progress continued during Thursday’s morning skate.
“The past few days have been the hardest I’ve skated in a really long...
(Above: New York Rangers forward Brian Boyle on '24/7', waiting for "Avatar 2" and quite hungry.)
Right from the start, last night's "HBO 24/7 Flyers Rangers" celebrated the brutality of the game: Big hits, fighting, nasty rivalries and the scars (and injuries) that result from them.
You know, all the stuff the NHL has been asked to slowly disown...
John Tortorella sat Brad Richards for more than nine minutes after the big-money center’s line surrendered two early goals to the Blues. The Rangers were handed their second straight defeat, 4-1.
The New York Rangers were stymied by the St. Louis
Blues defense for almost the entire 60 minutes giving them little ability to
generate anything offensively in a 4-1 defeat Thursday night. The Rangers went long stretches unable to
even generate a shot on goal and that just will not get it done against quality
Against a team that plays the defensive game...
… not good. Hopefully it won’t be a long trip to the IR for Sauer. Now it makes sense why Erixon was brought up, if Sauer is going to miss more time than the Rangers previously thought.

It was hardly surprising that the New York Rangers called up rookie defenseman Tim Erixon from the Connecticut Whale on Wednesday.
Erixon’s role with the AHL’s Northeast Division leaders has expanded, and his play has steadily improved since he was assigned to the Whale on Oct. 29. The 20-year-old had been on the Whale’s No. 1 power-play unit and become among...
