Calling it a "fight" is a bit misleading—the participants were only assessed two minute roughing minors—but the efficiency by which it was commenced is worth noting, especially since Sean Avery didn't appear to actually start this fight with the Penguins' Tyler Kennedy. (He took a more active part in restarting the bout as soon as he & Kennedy left the penalty box.) This is why we lamented his departure from the Rangers, and why we applaud his return: Sean Avery brings the crazy, and won't make you wait. [MSG] More »

The NHL released their Week 2 results of All Star balloting and Dan Girardi has fell out of the Top 20 after an impressive Week 1 showing at #18.There was never the excitement behind the campaign that there was with Sean Avery last year.So it is with much regret that I am shutting down the Girardi write-in campaign.If you still want to vote for him, I absolutely encourage you to...
When the Rangers were reeling off 7 wins in a row, the debbie downers were constantly on the team about beating up on inferior teams. How the Rangers true test would be the 3 games we just played against the Caps, the Flyers, and the Penguins. Tough to do much better than the Rangers just did. 3 games, 3 wins, 0 points gained by the opposition. Just imagine if this club didn’t...

Last night, the New York Rangers proved they can stand up to the so-called elite. Their 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins was broadcast on Versus for the entire country to see, putting the team in the spotlight for perhaps the first time since the mid-90s. While Versus, and NHL on NBC for that matter, have pushed the big-market Rangers on...
Here are some post-game interviews, and John Tortorella’s press conference.
Pittsburgh’s star has filled up the scoresheet since his return to the ice after a long layoff, and is feisty, as well.
Here, for the second time today, is the teaser for HBO's much-anticipated 24/7 Flyers Rangers, which should serve to get you appropriately excited for program. It's worth a revisit, especially in light of the delicious back-and-f0rth it has spawned between Jody Shelley and Brandon Dubinsky.
I direct your attention specifically to Shelley's standout moment at the six...

The appeal to fans of HBO’s 24/7 that leads up to NHL Winter Classic is the
behind the scenes access it gives them to the teams and players they
follow. Beyond practices and the locker
room access there can be a more candid conversation by the players about what
they think about other people in the league.
That side of it is out in full force in the past week as Flyer...
Pascal Dupuis is known for being a defensively responsible forward, but so far this season he’s being rewarded for his efforts on the stat sheet.
With 19 points (6G-13A) in 24 games, Dupuis is on pace to have his most productive NHL seas...

Cover your eyes, or ignore the next few lines:
Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins are here! Whoopeeeee! Everybody celebrate. Bring frankincense and myrrh to the Garden tonight. Hockey is saved.
