New York Rangers
New York Islanders
I must say, the environment at Nassau Coliseum was electric tonight, so it was only fitting that the game was decided in dramatic fashion late in the third period. Each team had swings of momentum, but it was the Rangers who had the final say in this one to grab their seventh straight win and earn their tenth win of the season. And like I said in the pregame; what better team to get lucky number seven against than the rival Islanders in their building?
The Rangers dominated play for majority of the first period, but it wasn't until 14:43 that Sean Avery was able to beat Evgeny Nabakov to give the Blueshirts a 1-0 lead and score his second goal in two games. The play originally formed when Brian Boyle perfectly hit Sean's stick for a redirected shot on net, which Nabakov kicked right back into the slot where Avery buried the rebound. I said before the game that this was Avery's chance to make a statement while playing on a line other than the fourth, and he did that wit...

When Michael Del Zotto entered the New York Rangers scene in 2009, he entered with a vengeance. Del Zotto had 12 points (4-8-12) in the first month of the season, of which eight of those points (3-5-8) came with the man advantage. Finally, the Rangers had a successor to Brian Leetch. Tom Poti tried and failed, Michal Rozsival tried and failed, and countless others tried and failed...
When the New York Rangers selected J.T. Miller 15th overall
in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, many, including myself, were unsure of the quality
of that selection. Players with bigger
name recognition and reportedly higher upside were still on the board when the
Rangers took Miller. Thus far Miller is
doing everything he can to quell the doubters and reward the Rangers for...
There has been very little news on Marc Staal over the past few months, and even less that was good, but today is a glimmer of hope for the New York Rangers All-Star defenseman. Larry Brooks at the New York Post
reports that concussion specialist Dr. Robert
Cantu cleared Staal for light physical activity following his Tuesday examination. This is a positive step after Cantu...

The New York Rangers’ current six-game winning streak is the longest streak they’ve had since the 2009-2010 season, when they won seven in a row. And according to Larry Brooks, this is only the sixth time in the past 17 seasons that the Rangers have put together a six-game winning streak. It feels good. It [...]
Exactly one month ago, when the Rangers and Islanders met for the first time this season at the Nassau Coliseum, the Blueshirts were just returning to the U.S. after their lengthy European road trip that opened the season. New York (City) ended up losing that game by a score of 4-2 as they did not capitalize on prime opportunities to put the puck in the net. This time around, however...

The Rangers have not lost a game since recalling Sean Avery from the Connecticut Whale on October 31. Contrast the 4-0 record with him in the lineup against the 5-3-3 record with him off the ice, and it looks pretty good for the agitator. This continues...
Lots of excitement as the Dan Girardi All Star write-in campaign began yesterday with numerous tweets, Facebook messages and e-mails encouraging others to vote for the Rangers underappreciated defenseman or just letting other Blueshirts fans know that they had voted. Here's a pic reader John D. sends me of him doing his part...The campaign also received a nice plug from Greg...
Pat Leonard at the Daily News has this quote from John Tortorella on the Rangers building a winner from within..."Well that's how you build. That's how you become, I think, a good organization," John Tortorella said Tuesday morning at the Coliseum. "You keep your kids, you keep developing your kids, you add some pieces along the way, but you just don't...
Brad Richards is taking to life as a big star in New York quite well.
He's showing up in Page Six for squiring starlets around town on his nights off and leading the Rangers to wins when he's working, something that's known as Jetering around these parts. Well, it's not really known as Jetering, but it should be especially when the Rangers are as hot as they are right...

UPDATE (Nov. 15): Craig Custance of ESPN Insider has this quote from former New York Rangers goalie Mike Richter: “I’m a huge fan of this outdoor game. It gets back to the roots of our game. I’ll participate in whatever I can,” he said. “I grew up idolizing the Flyers. We had a couple wars [...]
