from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
If the Rangers had lost a 1-0 game like this two years ago in which they owned a huge territorial edge and blasted 41 shots on net as they did Sunday at the Garden against the Sharks, the cry would have gone out for the front office to go get a big-time goal-scorer who would produce when it really mattered.
Someone, maybe, like Rick Nash.
If not Nash, maybe a Marty St. Louis.
The thing is, the Rangers and general manager Glen Sather already acquired those players, Nash about two years ago and St. Louis about two weeks ago in sending away three Bluebloods to get them. Yet, here are the Blueshirts, still struggling like mad to put the puck in the net as the season drip, drip, drips through the hourglass and the race — or is that the noose? — tightens.
BEST OF MAXIM
With 14 games left in the 2013-14 season, the New York Rangers find themselves in a familiar position: inside the playoff picture, but precariously so. Outside of their run to the top of the East in 2011-12, this has been the pattern for the Rangers in basically every season since the 2004-05 lockout. Through March and April the team is relevant, but in this fleeting kind of way...
Has anyone seen this man?
At some stage, Rick Nash needs to be a consistent game changing force because that’s what he is being paid to be. At some stage, people will begin to question his ability to be motivated game in, game out. At some stage if things continue the way they are, the media criticism – so far, relatively tame on Nash – will crank up.
Even with Marty St Louis’...
The folks at MSG were kind enough to share a quick note about tonight’s new episode of Beginnings, featuring Derick Brassard. The episode airs tonight after the Rangers/Senators game finishes up.

This is from November, 2010. Quick, find the current Ranger. Hint: Trick question.
When Suit wrote about the Rangers and their inability to find consistency, it struck a chord with me. I realized that despite management’s best efforts, this is a Rangers club that has had significant turnover year in and year out for quite some time. We know about the constant turnover from the...
For the second time this season, Rick Nash admitted he's not getting to the net often enough.
Back in early January, Nash went on a nine-goal in nine-game run after publicly acknowledging that he was spending too much time on the perimeter.
Rangers fans are now hoping for a repeat as he again reflected on his unwillingness to be aggressive on the offensive end after yesterday...

At 16:45 of the second period in the San Jose Sharks/New York Rangers game, the Situation Room initiated video review to further examine Carl Hagelin's wraparound attempt on the San Jose net. No camera angles provided to the Situation Room provided a clear image of the puck completely across the goal line. As a result, video review was inconclusive...
The Rangers were home for a matinee matchup yesterday against the Sharks, who came in battling the Ducks for top position in the Pacific Division. The Rangers were fresh off a win against Winnipeg which featured Carl Hagelin’s first career hat trick and Henrik Lundqvist’s 301st career win, which tied him with Mike Richter for the lead on the Rangers’ all time list.
One of the biggest regrets I’ve had in my six plus years of administering this blog was not getting Sean Avery voted into the All Star Game back in 2011.
While it was an amazing accomplishment that the “Vote for Avery” campaign was able to get him the 15th most votes for a forward ahead of players such as Henrik Zetterberg, Martin St. Louis, Rick Nash, the Sedin twins, Joe...

Just when you think the Rangers have righted the ship, a goalie like Antii Niemi steals one for the opposition, and the Rangers are again left without points. That comfy second-place cushion is gone, and the Rangers are barely in a playoff spot. The Flyers and Blue Jackets have two games in hand, and the Caps are breathing down the Blueshirts’ necks. The Rangers...
Pressure is mounting on Martin St. Louis and the New York Rangers.

The last time the Rangers faced San Jose, they lost 9-2 in an absolute embarrassment of a game. This time around, it will be different (hopefully). The Sharks are no longer the white-hot team that steamrolled the opposition in October. After their absurd start, they have fallen off a bit. They are still playing great hockey, but they aren’t blowing...

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
- Is it possible Hockey Hall of Famer Glen Sather, 70, may be thinking of retiring as a general manager if the New York Rangers make the playoffs this season? I’ve heard that. There was no response to a recent inquiry by me from Sather. If true, the Oilers can get his banner raised next season. The Oilers have put off a ceremony because...
