The Rangers kicked off their four game road trip on the right note, notching a 4-1 win over the Capitals on Sunday. It wasn't a perfect game, but there were several solid signs, some of which I will touch on below. Martin Biron - when Steve Oleksy opened the scoring early on via a soft goal, how many of us said, "uh-oh, here we go again.?" Yet, from that point on, Biron was almost Lundqvist-esq...

Staal injury update: 2-3 weeks assuming no setbacks

It looks like we have some positive news on the Marc Staal front. Per Kevin Paul Dupont, the Rangers expect Staal to miss an additional two or three weeks, assuming no setbacks in the recovery process. That represents the best possible scenario, and is great news for Staal and the Rangers. Tweet

Goal breakdown: Rangers score four unanswered goals to down Caps

The Rangers continued their dominance over the Southeast Division today, knocking off the Caps by a score of 4-1. The Rangers started off slow –par for the course– but really turned it up in the second period, scoring twice to make it three unanswered goals (en route to four). Martin Biron was solid in net, and the powerplay continued its success. This was another solid game...

Around the Farn: Yogan with goal and assist, Missiaen makes 37 saves in CT win

Andrew Yogan notched the tying goal early in the third period and added an assist on the fourth goal as Connecticut erased a 2-1 deficit in the third period en route to a 4-2 victory over Providence.

John Tortorella ‘Disgusted’ With Rangers, Refuses to Give Sabres Credit for Beating New York (Video)

“We sucked.” Those were just two of a bunch of pointed words John Tortorella had for his hockey club following the Rangers’ loss to the Sabres on Tuesday night. The New York head coach went off on one of his patented postgame rants yet again, as the Blueshirts dropped a 3-1 decision to Buffalo. Tortorella unloaded on his team after the game, saying that he was “disgusted”...

Henrik Lundqvist’s toe save is candidate for save of the year

The New York Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist have had a rocky season so far but have shown glimpses of the powerhouse they could be.  When playing the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night, Lundqvist made two insane back-to-back saves.  Rangers defenseman Ryan Mcdonagh made a terrible play with the puck and it squirted across the crease right to Sabres forward Thomas Vanek, who has been...

Derek Stepan scores bank shot goal from behind the net

New York Rangers forward Derek Stepan was breaking into the zone when he took the puck to the corner and found himself running out of real estate.  Seeing Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby playing him too aggressively, he decided to throw a backhander off Holtby’s leg and it ended up in the net. I’m not sure what possessed Holtby to play Stepan to aggressively and cut...

Micheal Haley Should Stay With the Rangers

Since being called up by the Rangers on March 5, Micheal Haley has been better than expected. His days with the Islanders showed he could fight anyone, but not much else. With the Blueshirts, we've actually seen he can be an effective hockey player. He forechecks well, uses the body and skates decently (although he won't be confused with Ryan McDonagh anytime soon) to...

Rangers use power play to beat Caps

About three hours after asking for more respect from NHL officials, Alex Ovechkin was called for two penalties within seconds of each other, leading to a pair of goals that put the New York Rangers ahead for good Sunday in a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Brian Boyle and Ryan Callahan took advantage of Ovechkin's miscues to give New York a two-goal lead in the second...

Biron, Boyle Help Rangers Get Back On Track in Win Over Capitals

The New York Rangers commenced a four game road trip in our Nation’s capital against the Washington Capitals, whom they defeated in the Eastern Conference Semifinals last spring in seven games.  The Rangers won the only meeting between the two clubs, a narrow 2-1 victory at Madison Square Garden on February 17th.  Each team came in to [...]

Video- Henrik Lundqvist With The Leg Save

Perhaps the best save I have seen all year. Lundqvist, even though out of position, finds the puck and is able to get his leg out to make a great save.  The overhead camera at the end of the video is the best angle to see exactly what Lundqvist did.  

Rangers-Sabres Preview

The New York Rangers capped a very busy stretch with one of their most complete efforts of the season their last time out. They'll look to continue their surge by extending their recent success against the struggling Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night. The Rangers (13-9-2) rebounded from having a four-game winning streak snapped by defeating Washington 4-1 on Sunday afternoon....

Goal Breakdown: Rangers sloppy, let two points slip away in Buffalo

The Sabres were without Tyler Ennis and Ryan Miller, are one of the worst teams in the league, and don’t play defense, so this game was supposed to be a cakewalk. It wasn’t, and while the Sabres were lucky to get out of the first ten minutes scoreless, they outplayed the Rangers in the second, forcing a lot of penalties. The Rangers played fairly well, but had some sloppy stretches...

Sabres 3, Rangers 1

The New York Rangers (13-10-2) lost to the Buffalo Sabres (10-14-3) by the score of 3-1, tonight. For a box score go to Yahoo! Sports. ...i'd be upset with tonight's results if I didn't see it coming from a mile away. And from the comments on the blog earlier today, I think you guys did also. Backup goaltender who hasn't won a game in his last 17 starts? Talk...
