Michael Del Zotto
New York Rangers
Los Angeles Kings
Kevin Klein had a pretty busy week. The defenseman was flipped to the New York Rangers by the Nashville Predators in exchange for Michael Del Zotto on January 22nd. Prior to the trade, Klein made one last impressive with Nashville fans in an epic bout with Antoine Roussel of the Dallas Stars. 5. Gregory Campbell (BOS) vs Luke Schenn (PHI) - Jan 25 Want to see Campbell get his butt kicked? Of course you do! Here Schenn dominates Campbell, dishing out a flurry of punches before Campbell even knows what hit him. 4. Clayton Stoner (MIN) vs Mike Brown (SJ) - Jan 25 What this fight lacks in length it makes up for in quality. Both Stoner and Brown throw some feisty, angry punches. We give Stoner the win here, but it's safe to say there was no winner after watching some of those punches find their mark. 3. Tanner Glass (PIT) vs Matt Martin (NYI) - Jan 23 Glass and Martin know each other pretty well. The two tussled in February of 2013 (Glass won in a landslide)...

As the Rangers help the NHL's business boom in the Bronx, they're simultaneously focused on how best to spend their slice of the league's growing revenue pie.
Sunday's 7-3 Rangers win over the Devils at Yankee Stadium posted a 5.1 rating on NBC - the highest ever in New York for an NHL game on the network. Their Wednesday night showdown with the Islanders on NBC...

After trading Michael Del Zotto to the Predators for Kevin Klein, many assumed the scouting of some teams would end. This included the Colorado Avalanche, who the Rangers have been scouting for quite some time. Adrian Dater noted that as recently as yesterday, the Rangers were still scouting the Avs. But with Klein on board, the Rangers...
After re-signing Henrik Lundqvist to a massive, seven-year extension earlier this season, finding common ground on a new deal with Captain Ryan Callahan jumped to the forefront of GM Glen Sather’s list of priorities. The two sides may not be close to a deal but Cally’s agent, Steven Bartlett of Sports Consulting Group, remains “optimistic” […]
It is fitting that the first hockey game ever to be played at Yankee Stadium ended with a dominating New York Rangers win. The Rangers got off to a slow start, with defensive miscues, sloppy play, and mediocre goaltending putting the Rangers into a 3-1 hole early. But after that, the Blueshirts rattled off six straight goals, including four in the second period that...
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
One player whose name I would have never predicted to be even possibly in the mix before the season is that of New York Rangers captain Ryan Callahan.
But he’s a pending UFA July 1 and so far contract talks have not gone well at all, a source told ESPN.com Tuesday.
All of which led to some rumblings that the Rangers are exploring the trade...
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
So there is another one of these coming up on Wednesday night, another chance for the Rangers to turn Yankee Stadium into the Bronx Blue against the Islanders the way they did against the Devils on Sunday afternoon.
And when Derek Stepan, who put the cherry on top of the Blueshirts’ 7-3 victory by converting a third-period penalty...
After sun reflecting off the ice delayed the first hockey game at Yankee Stadium, the New York Rangers and pinstriped goalie Henrik Lundqvist beat the New Jersey Devils 7-3 in snow and cold Sunday.
Rick Nash scored for the fifth straight game, and the New York Rangers used a four-goal second period to take the lead for good.
The Devils led 1-0 and 3-1 in the first, but New York...

When the clock strikes 3pm on Wednesday, March 5th signaling the time which any player acquired by a team can be eligible to participate in the postseason (also known as the trade deadline), it is all but certain Ryan Callahan will still be Captain of the New York Rangers Hockey Club. However, what happens between March 5th and July 1st is still anyone’s guess...
Former New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was honored by seemingly every MLB team during his final campaign this past year. But it may actually be an NHL event that houses the best Rivera tribute we’ve seen to date. Check out this ice sculpture, made by the world-famous Shintaro Okamoto, that was on display at Sunday’s NHL Stadium Classic matchup between the Rangers and Devils...
from Pierre LeBurn of ESPN,
One of the concerns the NHL privately had about holding a record six outdoor games is just how stretched its staff would be, logistically, in trying to pull it all off, most notably with back-to-back games this weekend in Los Angeles and New York, which is similar to the final two outdoor games in Chicago and Vancouver in early March.
The start of the Stadium Series game between the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium on Sunday has been delayed.
All it took was one look at the ice this morning at Yankee Stadium to see that the sun and ensuing glare was going to be a major factor in the game. The glare is so strong that in the name of safety, the NHL announced the game will have a delayed...
Can we be done with outdoor hockey for a while? It's awful chilly out there.
