The Rangers win over the Flyers was marred by a scary incident involving Marc Staal, who took a deflected puck off a shot either around or in his eye. All the good feelings from the solid win in my opinion sort of gets thrown out due Staal's injury. Game Highlights: The Rangers controlled action much of the way, even though the first period was tied at two. Coming into the game, both sid...

I have nightmares about this happening all the time, and unfortunately it became a reality last night for Marc Staal.

Marc Staal takes puck to the eye

I’m not sure what the Rangers’ Marc Staal ever did to the Flyers’  Kimmo Timonen, but I’m guessing Staal didn’t deserve this.  And yes, I know it was a total fluke play. Timmonen wound up with a slap shot from just inside the blue line and the puck caromed off something in front of Staal before jumping up and getting him in the face. Staal was done in pain for nearly...

It’s a question that comes up year after year: Should the NHL enforce a rule to make all players where visors? You can argue both sides. For starters, the obvious answer is yes and the facts are obvious — especially after Marc Staal took a puck right off his eyelid on Tuesday.

Goal breakdown: Flyers at Rangers

The Rangers took two points from the rival Flyers tonight, 4-2 at The Garden.

Keep it Rolling

That is what the New York Rangers hope to do tonight on Long Island when they take on the New York Islanders.

Okay, I know you HBers will be talking about this all day long, so let's get the conversation started. The Islanders need to snap the Rangers' winning streak, the same way they snapped the Canadiens.
