Video: Mark Messier Announces His Addition to Alumni Game Roster

… I knew Mark would find a way to play!  You cannot have an Alumni Game with the Rangers being a part of it and no Mark Messier, it’s just wrong. But Mark delayed his shoulder surgery and will be putting on a Blueshirt for all to see in Philadelphia. Can’t wait!

Checking In on Evgeny Grachev

Evgeny Grachev was one of the most highly touted Rangers prospects until the club traded him to St. Louis this past June for a third round pick, used on Steven Fogarty. The organization was criticized for “giving up” on Grachev and trading him away for “so little.” We were one of the blogs curious about the trade.  It turned out that Grachev asked for a trade, and that the...

Rangers C Anisimov apologizes for goal celebration

New York Rangers center Artem Anisimov apologized for a post-goal celebration that triggered a skirmish in Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Anisimov said he was not trying to show up the Lightning when he pretended to use his stick as a rifle and pointed it as Tampa Bay goatender Mathieu Garon. “I just want to apologize to Tampa. I didn’t mean something...

Pregame: Rangers Seek Bounce-Back Effort Against Lightning

The reason behind Monday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs to break a five-game winning streak at the time was quite simple: the Rangers only showed up for half of the game. Well, I guess that isn't necessarily the proper way to put it. What I should say is that it took the Blueshirts 30 minutes to get going against Toronto, therefore leaving them with a shortage of time...

Michael Sauer Diagnosed With A Concussion; Day To Day

… not good at all. I guess Anton Stralman will find his way back into the lineup until the Rangers figure out how long Sauer will be out. Hopefully not long.   

Jan Levine: Game 25: TB-NYR, Test for Patchwork Defense

The Rangers and Lightning meet for the second time in less than a week, this time at MSG. Saturday, the Blueshirts rode big plays from Artem Anisimov and Derek Stepan in the third period to erase a 2-1 deficit in what was eventually a 4-2 victory. Tonight's game might even be more difficult as an already patchwork Rangers defense now has to deal with the absence of Michael Sauer...

Freaky Friday

Remind us never to mention how strange things can get covering New York Ranger or New York Islander prospects because it just winds up getting stranger. The theme for Friday night might as well be "How to blow a lead without really trying." We kid you not as we had 6 games where leads were blown, 4 games where teams tried to give away leads and 2 come from behind wins...

Rangers Become Latest Victim of Concussion Epidemic

By Christopher Decker (@HockeyGuy_Chris) This is the year of the concussion. It has to be. It seems that almost as soon as the league cracked down on illegal head shots, the amount of head injuries has practically skyrocketed. Go figure. And it hasn’t all been the result of illegal checks to the head, either. Now, clean shoulder checks to the opposition are also causing concussions...

It’s Go Time!

Game 25. First of three in four nights, and four in six. Rangers still one away from 2,500 all-time wins. Anton Stralman makes his second start as a Ranger, in place of injured Michael Sauer (concussion). Steve Eminger moves up to the second pair with Michael Del Zotto. Erik Christensen remains prucha’d. Henrik Lundqvist in goal. Otherwise, same lineup that lost a five...

Ticket contest rules and regulations

OK, tomorrow we will do a predict-the-score contest, the winner getting two tickets to the Ottawa-Rangers game at MSG Jan. 12, courtesy of our Bonehead donor. So let’s review the rules, shall we? (answer: yes). 1) This is the easy part. You pick the score, then a bunch of tiebreakers: game-winning goal, Rangers shots, Sabres shots. Your entry should look something like this...

Keep It Rockin' Hank

Henrik Lundqvist tweets out this pic of him jamming with drummer Jay Wienberg earlier this week......Hank should schedule a concert and donate proceeds to Garden of Dreams. I'd definitely go to that.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.

Time-Lapse Video Of Citizens Bank Park Preparations For Winter Classic Is Neat

With the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic only a few weeks away, the preparations involved in transforming Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park from a stadium designed for baseball into an acceptable and functional venue for an NHL hockey game have been stepped up to breakneck speed. Look how fast the workers are getting after it in [...]

Krist Letang Sucks

I can't remember where I saw this but a video of TSN's top 10 most hated NHLers exists and seems to be from a couple of years back. Sean Avery is number 1, so that. Number somethingorother is former Penguin Darius Kasparaitis. Actually, former Pens Kaspar, Ulf and Matthew Barnaby made the list. But during the Kaspar spot, TSN had a crawl at the bottom of the screen in...

Blueshirts on defensive

At least the Rangers' defensemen are prepared for this. All season they have played without All-Star defenseman Marc Staal, and have actually played pretty well.

Retro Penguins Clip: Game Four, 1992 Patrick Division Final

The NHL's new realignment plan brings memories of the old Patrick Division flooding back and that brings us to this clip of the 1992 Patrick Division Final:   With Mario Lemieux out of action following an Adam Graves slash, the Penguins entered game four of the series trailing the Rangers 2-1. A loss here likely would have spelled the beginning of the end of...
