Found October 04, 2013 on Blue Seat Blogs:
Per Pat Leonard, Ryan Callahan is back on the ice, skating between Taylor Pyatt and Brian Boyle. This likely means Cally will be returning to the lineup on Monday in Los Angeles. Leornard also noted that the fourth line consisted of a rotation of Derek Dorsett and Jesper Fast on the right side of J.T. Miller (LW) and Dom Moore (C). It is expected that Fast will be returned to the Hartford Wolfpack of the AHL, who just cleared a forward spot on their roster. Tweet

Time to end the Pyatt experiment

Taylor Pyatt has not been a successful addition The Rangers were particularly sloppy against the Coyotes and were outdueled in net and on special teams but no one will panic after one game that came on the heels of an awkward, disjointed preseason. That said there are a few players who are surely on shaky ground. One particular player who doesn’t figure to be part of the future...

Callahan on IR; Hagelin on LTIR

As expected, the Rangers have made some formal roster moves to allow the roster to be at its current size. Captain Ryan Callahan has been placed on IR, where he must remain for seven days. Winger Carl Hagelin has been placed on LTIR, where he must remain for three weeks of ten games. Both moves are retroactive to September 30, meaning Cally will be able to return on October 6, in...

Around the Farm: Kristo with a goal in Whale shootout loss

The Hartford Wolfpack kicked off their 2013-2014 season tonight, losing in a shootout to the Norfolk Admirals. Danny Kristo and Darroll Powe had the goals for the Wolfpack, with Micheal Haley, Chris Kreider, Brandon Mashinter, and captain Aaron Johnson notching assists. It is worth noting that Johnson was the captain, with Haley and Powe serving as the alternates. They may not be...

Musings: The Rangers open up in the desert

How will Zuccarello fare this season? Today it all begins. The Rangers open their season today as the season, tone setting, nine game road trip gets under way tonight in Phoenix. Let’s jump straight into the first Musings of the new season. It will be interesting to see how Derek Stepan starts tonight. Will he be a step behind, will the lack of reps and preseason games and training...

Predicting roster moves when Callahan, Hagelin return

J.T. Miller will need to force his way into a permanent spot in New York (Seth Wenig/AP) One question that has been brought up a lot recently is who the Rangers will waive or return to Hartford when Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin return to the lineup. Cally is aiming for a Monday return in LA, while Hagelin is currently on LTIR and will miss –at a minimum– the first ten games...

Losing relationship with Richards ‘kills’ Tortorella

John Tortorella and Brad Richards won a Stanley Cup together with the Lightning but their time together with the Rangers ended with the star center benched. Tortorella told TSN the deterioration of that relationship was the only regret he had from his time with the Rangers which ended in his firing at the end of last season. “It kills me. It kills me” Tortorella now the coach...

What’s in store from 1993-94? Rangers drop opener to Bruins at the Garden

October 5th, 1993 – There was tremendous excitement entering the 1993-94 hockey campaign for the New York Rangers.  The team had a nice mix of veteran leadership and promising young talent ready to prove the previous season was an aberration and looking to take the next step that they were unable to do two years earlier after […]

Around the Farm: Buchnevich returns after one game absence

Pavel Buchnevich was the only Rangers prospect in action today, returning to the ice after a one game hiatus due to unknown reasons. Buchnevich was held scoreless in 9:39 of ice time over 11 shifts. Buchnevich also finished with a -1 rating. See below for the full scoring line for Buchnevich. Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal, KHL; L 3-1): 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, -1 Tweet

Jan Levine: Rangers Kick Off Season in Phoenix, Team and League Predictions

The wait is over…no not that one, the one for the Rangers' season to start. After a disappointing loss to the Bruins in the Eastern Conference Semis that helped lead to the firing of John Tortorella and hiring of Alain Vigneault followed by a relatively low-key, in terms of player movement, off-season, the Blueshirts 2013-14 season kicks off tonight in Phoenix. With nine...

Rangers In Need Of Some Consistency

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, “I agree that we’ve looked good at different points, but we haven’t been able to put together a full period or a full game,” coach Alain Vigneault said after Friday’s one-hour practice session. “I don’t want to give our team an excuse, but a lot of that has to do with our challenging training camp schedule. “The game...

Tortorella targets third and fourth lines after season-opening loss

John Tortorella says his third and fourth lines must earn their ice time something the Canucks coach stressed they most certainly did not do in Vancouver’s season-opening 4-1 loss in San Jose. After a short 30-minute practice Friday at Rogers Arena Tortorella made it clear he was not enamored with the play of his bottom-six forwards in Thursday night’s loss to the Sharks. He...

Rangers’ lone goal comes on power play

If the Rangers were going to score one goal in their season opener as they did in Thursday’s 4-1 defeat to the Coyotes it’s probably just as well for their mental condition that it came as it did on the power play. “I thought we moved the puck well and created some good opportunities” said Marc Staal who got the power-play goal by roofing one from the left circle to beat...

Coyote ugly: Rangers flop in season-opening loss

The Rangers sure have a lot of improving to do — and quickly — following Thursday night’s opening 4-1 defeat to the Coyotes in which sloppiness prevailed at both ends of the ice. “We just made too many mistakes regarding the way we have to play no matter who’s the coach that has nothing to do with it” Brad Richards told The Post following Alain Vigneault’s debut behind...

Jan Levine: Game 1: PHX 4 NYR 1, Lots of Work In Own Zone Required

The Rangers' initially foray under new coach Alain Vigneault was clearly not one for the record books or memory banks. Too many defensive breakdowns and uneven play contributed to the 4-1 loss to Phoenix on Thursday. Part of the defensive breakdowns can be attributed to the change in style, but in several cases, they were outhustled or pushed off the puck. In addition, Henrik...
