PLAYERS: Rick Nash
TEAMS: New York Rangers
In a piece on how well Rick Nash has adjusted to playing on Broadway, Ryan Lambert at Puck Daddy predicts the Rangers' superstar winger could be in line for an impressive post season honor... "That "bright lights, big city" storyline doesn't hang so well on Nash, and hasn't since his first games with the team. While you hate to pin the Rangers' success or failure this season on whether he can keep putting up these kinds of point totals every night. But the way things are going all of a sudden, he very well could be the league's MVP this year." Nash is currently on a ten-game point streak in which he's scored seven goals and nine assists. He also has five two-point games in his last six outings. ...like it or not the Rangers have gone from the whole is greater than the sum of its parts to a very top heavy team in one off-season. If guys like Nash, Richards and Gaborik struggle this team has no chance to win. ...and that...

Staal injury update: 2-3 weeks assuming no setbacks

It looks like we have some positive news on the Marc Staal front. Per Kevin Paul Dupont, the Rangers expect Staal to miss an additional two or three weeks, assuming no setbacks in the recovery process. That represents the best possible scenario, and is great news for Staal and the Rangers. Tweet

Around the Farn: Yogan with goal and assist, Missiaen makes 37 saves in CT win

Andrew Yogan notched the tying goal early in the third period and added an assist on the fourth goal as Connecticut erased a 2-1 deficit in the third period en route to a 4-2 victory over Providence. Jason Missiaen made 37 saves to keep Providence from opening up the game early on or coming back in the third period. Blake Parlett also had a pair of assists. Be sure to check after...

John Tortorella ‘Disgusted’ With Rangers, Refuses to Give Sabres Credit for Beating New York (Video)

“We sucked.” Those were just two of a bunch of pointed words John Tortorella had for his hockey club following the Rangers’ loss to the Sabres on Tuesday night. The New York head coach went off on one of his patented postgame rants yet again, as the Blueshirts dropped a 3-1 decision to Buffalo. Tortorella unloaded on his team after the game, saying that he was “disgusted”...

Stepan Has Become Rangers Top Center

A month ago, Rangers fans were more than willing to see the struggling Derek Stepan sent to the Colorado Avalanche for Ryan O'Reilly. While Stepan offered more offensively than O'Reilly, Rangers fans felt O'Reilly's superior face-off ability and toughness made him a much more viable option for the Blueshirts. Since those rumors, Stepan has gone on an absolute...

Henrik Lundqvist’s toe save is candidate for save of the year

The New York Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist have had a rocky season so far but have shown glimpses of the powerhouse they could be.  When playing the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night, Lundqvist made two insane back-to-back saves.  Rangers defenseman Ryan Mcdonagh made a terrible play with the puck and it squirted across the crease right to Sabres forward Thomas Vanek, who has been...

Micheal Haley Should Stay With the Rangers

Since being called up by the Rangers on March 5, Micheal Haley has been better than expected. His days with the Islanders showed he could fight anyone, but not much else. With the Blueshirts, we've actually seen he can be an effective hockey player. He forechecks well, uses the body and skates decently (although he won't be confused with Ryan McDonagh anytime soon) to...

Jan Levine: Game 25: BUF 3 NYR 1, Bottom Six. Tortorella. Gaborik.

The Rangers came up with one of their worst efforts of the season in their 3-1 loss to the Sabres on Tuesday. The only worse than that effort might have been coach John Tortorella's post-game press conference, which was more of the usual from him, though with even more vitriol for the media than usual. Bottom six. Torts. Gaborik. The only positive from the game was the...

Biron, Boyle Help Rangers Get Back On Track in Win Over Capitals

The New York Rangers commenced a four game road trip in our Nation’s capital against the Washington Capitals, whom they defeated in the Eastern Conference Semifinals last spring in seven games.  The Rangers won the only meeting between the two clubs, a narrow 2-1 victory at Madison Square Garden on February 17th.  Each team came in to [...]

Video- Henrik Lundqvist With The Leg Save

Perhaps the best save I have seen all year. Lundqvist, even though out of position, finds the puck and is able to get his leg out to make a great save.  The overhead camera at the end of the video is the best angle to see exactly what Lundqvist did.  

Rangers-Sabres Preview

The New York Rangers capped a very busy stretch with one of their most complete efforts of the season their last time out. They'll look to continue their surge by extending their recent success against the struggling Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night. The Rangers (13-9-2) rebounded from having a four-game winning streak snapped by defeating Washington 4-1 on Sunday afternoon....

Goal Breakdown: Rangers sloppy, let two points slip away in Buffalo

The Sabres were without Tyler Ennis and Ryan Miller, are one of the worst teams in the league, and don’t play defense, so this game was supposed to be a cakewalk. It wasn’t, and while the Sabres were lucky to get out of the first ten minutes scoreless, they outplayed the Rangers in the second, forcing a lot of penalties. The Rangers played fairly well, but had some sloppy stretches...
