If this was last year, I would have been at the game, in person, watching the Rangers battle the Thrashers. Instead I lost my only chance to watch the team I love live thanks to the Thrashers jumping ship and move to Winnipeg, so for that reason I truly despite Winnipeg, the Jets, their stupid maple leaf uniform, and everything to do with that franchise. With that said, the Rangers did play a game against them, so let’s get down to business.
The stat sheet shows the Rangers being outshot 28 to 17. 17 shots in a game. Somehow the Rangers managed to have fewer shots on goal than they did against Edmonton. How is that possible? Well, the stats actually break down like this. They had 17 shots on goal, but another 13 shots went wide, and 8 shots were blocked. So their combined total attempted shots on goal was 38. Compare that to 27/14/14 for the Jets for a total of 55 attempted shots. I really needed to see those numbers to believe it. Why do these number matter? If you do t...

The Rangers won 2-1 in Winnipeg last night in a game that can best be described dull. At this stage of the season however, all that matters to the Rangers is that they left the MTS Arena with 2 points to make their Western Canadian trip a highly successful one. All in all as the Rangers head home, despite playing inconsistent error prone hockey to begin the year they will be more...
… could this be the New York Rangers home opening montage for Thursday? The team released this via their YouTube page and it has all the signs of being an opening montage. via our friends over at The NYR Blog
Every once in awhile, I like to get readers directly involved in my blogs and today happens to be one of those times.
Feel free to leave a comment for the following questions:
1) What would you like to see the New York Rangers accomplish during this 6-game homestand?
2) What forward lines would you like to see head coach John Tortorella utilize? Why do your proposed lines make...
Mats Zuccarello has a lot of talent, an abundance of skill and plenty of vision, but until he strings a few quality performances together at the NHL level doubts will remain about his ability to stick in the big league. Given the prospects coming up through the system, Zuccarello is in danger of becoming increasingly irrelevant in New York.
Regardless of whether you think Zuccarello...
We took to Twitter once again to ask a very important question to New York Rangers fans, who should play for the Blueshirts at the Alumni Game against the Philadelphia Flyers? Of course, we asked them to name players besides Mark Messier, Brian Leetch, Adam Graves, Wayne Gretzky and Mike Richter who are all but [...]
On Monday, we broke down the 2012 NHL Winter Classic ticket situation for Philadelphia Flyers fans. The abridged version: The general public is screwed and season-ticket holders are being forced to buy seats for the alumni game and the AHL outdoor game for the honor of purchasing Citizens Bank Park Winter Classic tickets.
The New York Rangers finally got around to informing their...

John Tortorella refuses to "dissect" the issues plaguing his club, but after Monday's 2-1 win in Winnipeg, the Rangers coach provided an accurate summary of his team's 3-2-2 start on the road. "We score a couple, we're ugly as hell, and our goaltending has certainly given us an opportunity right on through here," Tortorella said. "So we're...
I find it amazing that the New York Rangers managed to go 3-1-0 on their road trip through western Canada considering they were dominated for large portions of every game. I said going into the trip that satisfactory would mean grabbing wins in at least two of the four games, but the Rangers did so in three, improving their record on the season to 3-2-2. Six out of a possible eight...
The New York Rangers still are not playing well by any
stretch of the imagination, but a Ryan Callahan power play goal at 8:41 of the
third period and 27 saves from Martin Biron were enough to give them a 2-1 win
over the Winnipeg Jets. The Rangers
wrapped up a seven-game road trip with a solid 3-2-2 record including a 3-1
trip to Western Canada. We can focus on
