Over the summer the New York Rangers re-signed 25-year-old forward Brandon Dubinsky to a new contract that would pay him $16.8 million over the next four years. At the time, Dubinsky was coming off a career season in which he led the entire Blueshirt squad in scoring with 24 goals and 54 points. In fourteen games so far this season, however, Dubinsky's production has been subpar...
This streak is why Rangers fans have reason to be excited. The Rangers are getting better every game. They are doing the little things right and the confidence levels are only going one way; up. If the Rangers continue to play this way the next three games are all very winnable. All of a sudden we’re talking about a nine game winning streak and a huge dose of momentum to carry...
Marian Gaborik and the New York Rangers have legged out a five game win streak after a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday. The Rangers (8-3-3) are finally playing up to expectations after a long road trip to start the season left them handicapped as Madison Square Garden continued its now infamous transformation project. Clearly Gaborik is the offensive leader of...
Last night Sean Avery showed just how effective he can be
for the New York Rangers. In the end he
was not the star of the show as Brandon Dubinsky scoring his first goal of the
year took away much of the spotlight, but Avery was the Rangers best forward
for two periods. Avery provided energy
when much of the lineup was lacking it, scored a beautiful goal top shelf over...
John Tortorella continued his own personal All Star campaign for Dan Girardi by saying this about the Rangers defenseman to Blueshirts United..."He's turned into an All-Star player," noted the head coach. "He does everything. That's the simplest way to put it. He does everything there is for us, and he's the most underrated defenseman in the league. You...

It took a lot longer than anyone expected, but New
York Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky has finally tallied his first goal of the
season. The level of relief on the face
of Dubinsky immediately following the puck hitting the back of the net showed
just how much the drought was weighing on the 25-year-old forward. As he said postgame...
Before the game I spoke about the lack of production beyond the top offensive line for the Rangers, despite the team being on a five-game winning streak at the time. Tonight, in their 5-1 defeat of the Carolina Hurricanes to make it six straight, the secondary scoring responded with an astounding performance and happened to score all five goals for New York. If you would've showed...
… what a win. And what a goal by Sean Avery in the 1st period. Pure sniper shot there. Dan Girardi once again played an AMAZING game and deserves to make the All-Star team already. Do not forget that the Dan Girardi write in campaign for the NHL All Star Game starts on Monday!
When the Rangers played the Sens last time they had some very different looking lines. This time they matched up with the Sens with a red hot trio of Artem Anisimov, Derek Stepan, and Marian Gaborik leading the way. And did they ever lead the way. Gaborik with 2 goals, Stepan with a goal and 2 assists, Anisimov with 2 assists, and probably should have gotten credit for a...
The Rangers have four players on the NHL All-Star ballot, none of whom is named Dan Girardi. This omission does not please John Tortorella, the coach who has been touting the defenseman's value all season.
"This league. . ." Tortorella began with a fair measure of disgust when asked for his...
Rapid reactions to moves made over the summer are part of
the way the sports world operates so it is not surprising that TSN took a look at the best and
worst unrestricted free agent moves of the summer thus far. It is also not surprising that is numbers
that become the focal point of assessing impact on the team, and accordingly
they viewed Brad Richards move to the Rangers...
I don't think I've ever seen such relief during a celebration of a goal the way Brandon Dubinsky did last night. Let's hope now that he's gotten his first out of the way they will come in bunches for him now (pic via Blueshirts United)......love this pic because of Boyle's reaction. You know the rest of the team was pulling for Dubinsky to finally score and I...
NEW YORK (AP) Dan Girardi and Brandon Dubinsky scored 9 seconds apart midway through the third period and the New York Rangers
went on to rout the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 on Friday night for their sixth straight win.
Friday night at the Garden, Eric Staal's high-sticking penalty on Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi cut a third-period Carolina power play short, and the Blueshirts responded with three goals in three minutes on the way to a 5-1 victory over the Hurricanes.
