Last weekend I took part in a Rangers blogger roundtable discussion with my fellow bloggers, analyzing the first five games of the New York Rangers 2011-12 season. Another one of these will be posted after every five games of the Blueshirts' season, so look for another next week. The roundtable was done in Q and A form, so below are some of the questions along with my answers...
Sorry for the delay, we usually aim to post these things around 7a, but Dave is in California for work, Chris is already serving beer in the UK, and my commute doubles in duration every time it rains. Anyway, here are some quick thoughts before we prepare for the opener tonight. Feel free to chime in below…
The other day we provided video of Adam Mair delivering an...
… 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
New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that defenseman Brendan Bell has been assigned to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL). Bell, 28, registered two shots on goal in 11:26 of ice time while making his Rangers debut on Saturday at Edmonton. He returns to Connecticut where he [...]
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...
“It’s pretty ugly everywhere at times now.”
That was the quote from Brad Richards (on MSG Network), who said several times several different ways that the Rangers: A) survived themselves and a brutal opening schedule and B) are not playing particularly well, even if they are playing hard most of the time and C) got eight points in the bank, and those are non-refundable.
Ryan Callahan scored a power-play goal and the New York Rangers ended a seven-game road trip with a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night Callahan scored his team's second power-play goal of the night at 8:41 of the third period. Ruslan Fedotenko also scored with the man advantage early in the second period for the Rangers,and Dan Girardi assisted on both goals.
The Rangers traveled 16,000 miles across two continents during the preseason and the early part of the regular season. Now, finally, they’re ready to play the Garden.

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...
After seven games in three countries and about a month away from home, the New York Rangers were thrilled to return to the friendly confines of Madison Square Garden.
After seven games in three countries and about a month away from home, the New York Rangers were thrilled to return to the friendly confines of Madison Square Garden. Friendly? Most definitely. Familiar? Not so much. The Rangers will become the last of the NHL's 30 teams to play their home opener when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.
Ruslan Fedotenko did a little bit of everything, backup goalie Martin Biron made a strong first start, and the Rangers bailed themselves out of several long lapses in Monday night's 2-1 win over the Jets (2-5-1) with, of all things, the power play. The Rangers (3-2-2) scored two power play goals after entering the game 1-for-23 when playing a man up.
