… 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. [...]
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...
“(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 [...]

Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers have created some momentum on their extensive stretch of road games to open the season.
The Calgary Flames are trying to do the same with a lengthy homestand.
Lundqvist could be back in net as the Rangers try to build on their best performance so far when they face the Flames for the only time this season Thursday night.

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...
… 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 [...]
