Marian Gaborik tallied hist team leading 14th goal of the season with 2:34 left in the third period of last night's game against the Buffalo Sabres. The goal was a picture perfect shot from the top of the left circle, which for most would be the highlight of the night, but not Gaborik on this night. More memorable than that shot was his tremendous skill to do a spin-o-rama...
Defenseman Marc Staal led the Rangers in minutes played and takeaways last year. He was second on the team in shots blocked and the only Ranger to make the All Star Game.
So it would make sense that with Staal yet to play a game this season, because of the aftereffects of a concussion, the Rangers' defense would slip a little, right?
So far, New York's defense has...
The Rangers tallied two shorthanded goals in the second period of last night’s game at Buffalo, from Carl Hagelin at 11:34 and Ryan Callahan at 18:51. It was Hagelin’s first career shorthanded goal/point, and Callahan’s first shorthanded goal/point of the season (third shorthanded goal of his career). The last time the Rangers tallied two shorthanded [...]
Prior to last night's game John Tortorella discussed Michael Del Zotto's progression this year (via Blueshirts United)..."The thing that's encouraging to me is that I think he listened as we were going through some steps last year, and made some adjustments as far as the mental part of the game," stated Tortorella. "He came into camp in really good shape...
After Derek Stepan and the New York Rangers put on one of their most impressive offensive displays of the season, all they could do was tout their defense, grit and hustle.
Stepan scored twice, including a pretty coast-to-coast goal just after the Rangers killed a penalty, and New York beat the Florida Panthers 6-1 on Sunday night for as comprehensive-looking a win as New York has...
Great teams have the ability to generate great bounce-back performances, and that’s exactly what the New York Rangers did tonight in their 4-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres at HSBC Arena. Having lost their last two coming into tonight, the Blueshirts needed a strong team effort to get back on track, and they got that this evening against a strong opponent.
With the Rangers and...
The New York Rangers only have ten total losses on the season (6 in regulation, 4 in extra time), but two of those have come in the past week. On Monday they fell, 4-2, to the Toronto Maple Leafs, and again lost, 3-2, to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday in a shootout. On the bright side, the Blueshirts could have easily won both of those games, but in each, the inability to convert...
PHILADELPHIA After creating controversy with a goal celebration against the Lightning on Thursday, New York Rangers forward Artem Anisimov issued an apology to Tampa Bay on Friday.
Since winning games in bunches like they have for the past month and a half became common, one thing the New York Rangers have done very well is bouncing back after losses. Earlier in the week, the Blueshirts lost two close games to the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning, but rebounded this weekend with back-to-back complete defeats of the Buffalo Sabres and Florida Panthers...
Justin Terranova at the New York Post reports that John Tortorella had to make assurances to HBO and the NHL that he would not interfere with the work of the 24/7 crews..."The coach has made it clear that, yes, he is concerned about things that provide glimpses at their strategy and possibly with their injuries, but he has not given us restrictions on what we can do," HBO...

Not going to get all wrapped up in who did what on a lopsided scoresheet, though I’m sure you all enjoyed the heck out of it, and you should have.
Instead, how about numbers?: 17-6-4, second best record in the improving East and fewest regulation losses in the NHL; 8-2-2 at home. Points in 16 of 19. 24-8-3 in second of back-to-backs since 2009-10. 38 points in 27 games, the...
Very nice way to end a two-game losing streak and a very complete win over the Baby Buffaloes for No. 2,500 in franchise history, for No. 4 in a row on the road, No. 13 in the last 17 games overall.
Right back at it tonight against the Cats (7:30 starter).
1) The Rangers were really in control of the first 10 minutes of the game and I thought they did Jhonas Enroth...
Carl Hagelin scored twice to lead the New York Rangers to a 4-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night, giving the franchise its 2,500th regular-season win. Hagelin, playing his eighth NHL game, and Ryan Callahan scored short-handed goals, and Martin Biron made 32 saves to help the Rangers become the fifth NHL team to reach the milestone.
Derek Stepan scored twice, including a pretty coast-to-coast goal just after the Rangers killed a penalty, and New York beat the Florida Panthers 6-1 on Sunday night.
