Carolina’s Ryan Murphy will not miss any games as a result of his low hit on Rangers winger Derek Dorsett over the weekend, but he will be a bit lighter in the wallet. The NHL fined Murphy $2,213.68 on Monday — the maximum permitted under the collective bargaining agreement — for his open-ice hit below the knees that send Dorsett flipping headfirst to the ice. Dorsett, who came to New York from Columbus in the offseason, called the hit “dirty,” and new Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault was also quick to voice his disapproval with Murphy’s actions. “I mean, in my opinion, that’s real dangerous,” Vigneault said after Saturday’s game, according to ESPN.com’s Katie Strang. “Any time you’re going for knees, you’re looking at career-ending injuries here. “That was borderline very, very dangerous.” Check out the hit in question in the video below.

Rangers 1-3-1 power play system succeeding

It’s no secret, the biggest problem the Rangers have had the last several seasons is the lack of a respectable power play.

Ryan McDonagh dumps Corey Perry into bench twice in one shift

This might be our new favorite video of the young NHL season. Ryan McDonagh hitting Corey Perry into the New York bench was humorous enough as is, but the play reached epic proportions when it happened twice on the same shift. It's fairly rare a player is hit over the boards and into the bench, but the odds of it happening twice in a little under 15 seconds is insanity.  ...

Ryan McDonagh Hits Corey Perry Into Rangers Bench Twice in One Shift (Video)
