Rangers 1-3-1 power play system succeeding

It’s no secret, the biggest problem the Rangers have had the last several seasons is the lack of a respectable power play. Not since the 2009-10 season have the Blueshirts finished in the top half of the league in PP conversions, and not since the 1998-99 season have the Rangers had a top 5 power play. Although it’s still a bit early to call our current power play elite, or...

Ryan McDonagh dumps Corey Perry into bench twice in one shift

This might be our new favorite video of the young NHL season. Ryan McDonagh hitting Corey Perry into the New York bench was humorous enough as is, but the play reached epic proportions when it happened twice on the same shift. It's fairly rare a player is hit over the boards and into the bench, but the odds of it happening twice in a little under 15 seconds is insanity.  ...
