New York Rangers
New York Islanders
Its Thursday, it’s a musings day and a game day. It’s the beginning of a three game home stand against divisional rivals. Don’t get used to it with relocation coming though. Anyway, let’s get into it.
Something I tweeted last night: Dan Girardi has gone pointless in 9 games. The entire tweet was a joke but what it did was reinforce how some players really do go beyond stat lines. Girardi is a solid two way guy who is good for 30 points but there may be no defenseman in the entire league – given the circumstances in NY – that is currently more important to their team. Girardi does it all.
Quietly, several Rangers are near the league lead in statistical categories. Carl Hagelin is third in shorthanded goals, Mike Del Zotto is in the top ten for plus/minus, Gaborik is right in the mix for the Richard trophy (trailing Stamkos but just one goal) while Brad Richards is tied for third in the league in game winning goals. Then there’s a certain goalie. With goalies of at least 16 starts onl...

… As everyone knows, I have been a huge advocate of Carl Hagelin on the main Rangers roster since before the offseason. I have been highly impressed with his skill and speed. Nothing like having a burst of energy and youth on a roster that was without it for so many seasons. Stu Bickel was [...]
Henrik Lundqvist will sport a modest looking mask for the Winter Classic on Jan. 2 in Philadlephia.
The mask, as usual for Lundqvist, will reflect a New York Rangers theme, and not so much of the man behind the mask.
Dave Hutchison of InGoal magazine released pictures of the mask, painted by DaveArt’s Dave Gunnarsson.
On the side, it’s the Rangers’ third logo of the...
Marian Gaborik is your new goal-scoring leader.
He got it done during Friday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers in the third period.
Gaborik notched his 21st of the season, separating himself from the pack, which consists of Jonathan Toews, Steven Stamkos and Phil Kessel, all with 20 goals.
Gaborik also has 11 assists this season and 32 points.

The New York Rangers are in agreement that being in first place at the two-day Christmas break doesn't guarantee anything come April.
But after three wins in four nights against Atlantic Division foes, the Broadway Blueshirts are more than happy to be on top of the pack.

Just when you thought nothing could possibly top last week's premier episode of HBO's 24/7: Road to the NHL Winter Classic series, episode 2 stole the spotlight by a mile. Really, that was an extraordinary 60 minutes of television - maybe the best I've ever seen.
In episode two we get to see a lot more of the off-ice stuff, which is really what 24/7 is geared to...
