When the New York Rangers take to the ice at Yankee Stadium as part of the NHL’s Stadium Series against the Devils and Islanders, goalie Henrik Lundqvist will be paying homage to New York Yankees heroes of the past.Lundqvist is ditching his normal mask for a tricked-out paint scheme that has Yankee pinstripes down the front and images of Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig on the right side. The mask was painted by Dave Gunnarsson and unveiled on Thursday."Henrik wanted to pay tribute to the fantastic Yankees of New York and have a clear baseball connection on the mask with portraits of legendary Yankees players. I loved the idea," said Gunnarsson."Henrik and me started to brainstorm and setup a plan how to create it."The artwork they created  is a mix of Henrik's crisp designs, and a New York Rangers theme mixed with the passion of Yankees.The Rangers play the Devils on Jan. 26 at Yankee Stadium, then the Islanders on Jan. 29 in the Bronx.


Rangers place Taylor Pyatt on waivers

Per Larry Brooks, the Rangers have placed forward Taylor Pyatt on waivers. Pyatt has been a big disappointment this season and hasn’t played a game since the December 12 loss to Columbus. Pyatt has just one assist in his 22 games this season, while being a negative Corsi player (42.7% Corsi) with 34.5% offensive zone starts. As Kevin said this morning, it appears that Pyatt’s...

Rangers sign draft pick Anthony Duclair

Sorry for missing this yesterday, but in preparations for the storm I missed this signing. The Rangers signed 2013 3rd round pick –and big time talent– Anthony Duclair to an entry level deal yesterday. Duclair is the first Rangers draft pick from 2013 to sign a deal, although that comes as no surprise. Duclair was a huge talent headed into the draft, but questions about work...

Value for Money? Not in New York.

Rarity: Chris Kreider is one of few that represent value this year. (Bruce Bennett/Getty Images) Who gets the blame; the General Manager? The coaching staff? Or perhaps the players themselves? When you look at the Rangers’ disappointing position in the standings and general up and down performances from a game to game basis, one thing that may go unnoticed is how the Rangers are...

2014 WJC: Buchnevich, Russia eliminated by Sweden

Pavel Buchnevich and Russia were eliminated from the 2014 World Junior Championships this morning, losing to Sweden 2-1. With Buchnevich’s exit, the Rangers no longer have any prospects in the tournament. Sweden will face the Canada/Finland winner for the gold. In six tournament games, Buchnevich finished with a line of 2-5-7 with 18 PIMs (most coming from his misconduct penalty...

Rangers mid-season grades: the goaltenders

United in brutal paint jobs. So far, the crew here at BSB has covered the GM, Coach, defense and bottom six forwards in our mid-season grades series.  Today, we touch on something of a sore subject: the goaltending.  Even though Marty Biron played in several regular season games, he immediately retired and gave way to Cam Talbot.  For this reason, I’m not going to grade Marty...

Lineup notes: Cally in; Miller, Falk, Del Zotto out

Per the beat writers (multiple), Ryan Callahan will make his return tonight against the Penguins. J.T. Miller will be a healthy scratch, but it’s important to note that AV said the kid is playing well, and that it’s just a numbers game. Derick Brassard will move back to center. On defense, Justin Falk and Michael Del Zotto remain the healthy scratches. Tweet

Rangers mid-season grades: Glen Sather

The good ol’ days For those of you who missed it, we kicked off our annual mid-season grades this week with a review of Alain Vigneault, and have since followed that up with player grades for our defense, bottom six forwards, etc. Today, we’re going to grade the man who oversees it all — Glen Sather. For the purpose of this post, we’ll need to look back at 2013 in its entirety...

Henrik Lundqvist Will Pay Tribute to Yankees Legends With Special Mask For Rangers’ Stadium Series Games (Photo)

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist wears some of the most creative masks in the NHL, but his latest design that will be used in the team’s upcoming Stadium Series games might be his best yet. The Rangers will take on the New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders in a pair of outdoor games on Jan. 26 and Jan. 29, respectively, with Yankee Stadium in New York playing host...

Year In Review: New York Rangers

Year In Review: New York Rangers As 2013 winds down and everyone prepares for 2014, the NYSK writers wanted to take some time  to talk about the ups and downs of the past year (mostly downs for all of our teams). Today, we will look at the year in review for the New York Rangers. In this year-end special, we will talk about the good, the bad, and the outlook for 2014.  The Rangers...

Penguins claim Taylor Pyatt off waivers

The Taylor Pyatt era in New York has come to an end. The Pittsburgh Penguins have claimed the winger off waivers, absolving the Rangers of his $1.55 million cap hit and clearing a spot on the 50 man reserve list. Over his 70 games for the Rangers, Pyatt was a pretty big disappointment, putting together a line of 6-6-12 over the season and a half. Tweet

Derek Dorsett will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken fibula

Ryan Callahan went in, Derek Dorsett went out and the Rangers went down. Callahan, the Rangers’ captain, returned to the lineup Friday night from a nine-game absence due to a left knee sprain, only to watch teammate Derek Dorsett break his fibula blocking a slap shot as the Rangers fell, 5-2, to Sidney Crosby and the first-place Pittsburgh Penguins at CONSOL Energy Center. Dorsett...

US Braintrust Names Olympic Squad

Following the 2014 Winter Classic on New Year’s Day, Team USA announced the 25-man roster that will head to Sochi next month in pursuit of Olympic gold. Three Rangers made the team. Ryan McDonagh, an early favorite given his skating ability and the larger ice surface the games will be played on, will be counted […]

Henrik Lundqvist’s new helmet has tribute to the New York Yankees

New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist hasn’t been having a great year, but there is still a chance he could turn it around.  The Yankees have two outdoor games for the NHL’s Stadium Series and Lundqvist unveiled a pretty cool new mask.  It has a Yankees tribute, featuring Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth on one side, with the front featuring Lady Liberty’s torch...

RECAP: Game 43. Pens beat Rangers 5-2.

The Rangers are a dangerous reminder of what happens when you fire your coach but then keep all of the fired coach’s stiff players. Talk about a team without an identity; holy ****.   The Penguins took full advantage of the Rangers’ identity crisis and dominated yet another game at home. Their 11th straight home win. The formula worked yet again. The #Pens haven...
