New York Rangers
Quick, come to The Rangers Tribune for your psychic readings before time runs out!
For those of you who don’t quite get what’s going on here, I devoted an entire article this morning to the recent formation of the new first line for the Rangers, keying in on Brad Richards and his ability to up his game at this time of year. Well, it just so happens that Richie and linemates Marian Gaborik and Carl Hagelin have my back, because they came out and scored all four goals in tonight’s 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes at Madison Square Garden. I’ll admit that I am not the owner of a crystal ball, but how is that for timing?
It all began just 3:02 into the game when Marian Gaborik was in the right place at the right time to take a bounce off the backboards and put it past a sprawling Cam Ward from the side of the net. The Rangers were buzzing early in that first period, led by the fluid playmaking of that first line in the offensive zone, so it was no surprise to see one of the nigh...

Free agent acquisition Brad Richards hasn't exactly had the season most of us expected him to. Do not translate that to mean he hasn't played well, though, because that hasn't been the case. After all, Richards has 21 goals and 50 points in 68 games played so far with the Rangers. I've always said that any player who can reach the 20-goal mark has a skill set in...
The New York Rangers held practice earlier today at their practice facility following last night's 4-3 overtime win against the Islanders, and according to Andrew Gross of Ranger Rants, neither captain Ryan Callahan (bruised foot) nor defenseman Michael Del Zotto (hip) participated. Neither suited up for Sunday's tilt with the Isles, either, so it's looking like they...
… if Brad Richards is starting to heat up, wow, what a great time for it to happen. As I said before, he looked possessed tonight. The Richards/Gaborik/Hagelin line could be something special if they start clicking now. Against the Isles they looked AMAZING.
Blueshirts United has these quotes from the Rangers new top line on their play last night...Brad Richards...We found each other tonight. (Gaborik and Hagelin) skate so good so if I can get just a little time with the puck I can throw it into areas and they jump on it, just like tonight. It forces me to play with pace, and I have to keep up with them.Marian Gaborik...It's a lot...
Marian Gaborik scored the Rangers' third power-play goal in the dying seconds of overtime, and New York snapped its season-worst, three-game regulation losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the New York Islanders on Sunday night.
With the Madison Square Garden crowd imploring the Rangers to ''Shoot the puck,'' Gaborik snapped a rising shot over goalie Evgeni...
… the display by Brad Richards was well deserving of the broadway hat. Keep that play coming Brad!
The Rangers got the better of the Carolina Hurricanes by a score of 4-2 at The Garden tonight.

Let’s get to those bullets…

Good morning Thursday people. Apparently this is the morning where you’ve woken up to the biggest game of the season. Some media darling is skating into the garden today, he’s quite good apparently. Whatever.
Here’s a statistic for you: (I bragged about it earlier this year when I was in New York with Dave, the Suit and co.) Sidney Crosby is winless in Penguins games that I...

The New York Rangers completely dominated the rival Islanders tonight at Madison Square Garden, doubling their opponent in shots in two of the three periods. In a perfect world, the Blueshirts would have ran away with this one in regulation. But, having lost three straight in regulation going into tonight's contest, a hard-working overtime...

When it comes to feel-good stories in the NHL this season, you’d be hard-pressed to find one better than New York Rangers defenseman Stu Bickel, who began the season playing on Asylum Street in Hartford.
Though Bickel will never be confused with elusive Hall of Famers Bobby Orr or Cheshire-bred Brian Leetch, he has proven to be one of the NHL’s all-time steals...
