Stepan Not At Practice: No Need To Be Concerned

When Derek Stepan blocked that shot last night, and needed help getting off the ice, Ranger-nation held their collective breath. Luckily, Stepan didn’t miss a beat, and was out for his next shift. Clearly there was no damage done to the ankle, or else he would not have come back into the game. However, that doesn’t mean that the Rangers won’t rest their prized young center...

Avery's Earning His Spot

It's been eleven games since the New York Rangers recalled forward Sean Avery from the Connecticut Whale of the AHL after he was assigned there during training camp. In those eleven games, Avery has slowly but surely worked his way into earning a roster spot on this team. As expected, he was handed the bare minimum of responsibility from the coach early on, but that's changed...

The Tough Road Ahead

The Rangers won seven in a row, then lost two, and have now spun off four wins in a row. For those keeping track, that’s 11-2, but the Rangers only played three playoff teams in that stretch, winning them all.

Ex-Lightning star returns with red-hot Rangers

TAMPA, Fla. — Brad Richards is returning to the scene of his greatest triumph. But he is doing so as a Ranger and not coming back home as a member of the Lightning, the latter a scenario the 2004 Conn Smythe winner seriously considered as he pondered his free agency options...

Stewart, Canes try to fight out of funk

Canes forward Anthony Stewart said there never was any doubt, any hesitation. Brian Boyle of the New York Rangers hit Jeff Skinner along the boards in the third period of Thursday's game -- a dangerous hit, in Stewart's eyes. Just like that, Stewart went after Boyle, throwing punches, drawing a fighting major but also an instigator minor. "It was one of our star players...

Rangers-Hurricanes in review

You know what? That was an imperfect game against a struggling team. OK, given. But that’s a good, good win. That’s a tough game to be the road team, with the coaching change and the feelings of getting the popular coach fired, and the new coaches on the bench. And then a really quick goal by the home team and the place is all pumped up. It’s a tough game because there...
