Found November 15, 2011 on The Rangers Tribune:
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, they are a new beast and are winners of six straight games going into tonight's contest. How sweet it would be to get number seven against the rival Isles, while also paying them back for their last "date". Meanwhile, the Islanders have struggled mightily, winning just one game since defeating the Rangers on October 15. They currently find themselves dead last in the Eastern Conference and have went 1-6-3 in their last ten games.

Is Olivia Munn the NY Rangers' secret weapon?

As you all well know, the New York Rangers are on a recent 6-0 run and there is a specific reason the team is feeling so hot; alternate captain Brad Richards reportedly started dating uber-hottie Olivia Munn over the last few weeks. In his last 7 games, Richards has netted 7 points, so scoring off the ice seems to help his performance ON the ice too. I could care less about the Rangers...

Avery Still Frustrated with Lack of Impartiality from Officials

Sean Avery still knows how to grab attention and stir things up in hockey games, but since being recalled from the AHL this season, he's been a much more level-headed player than we've seen in the past. In other words, he's been playing within the rules set forth by the league, however he still has encountered unfair bias against him when it comes to the NHL's officials...

Video: Lundqvist Makes Header Save, Then Sprawls To Rob Parenteau

Henrik Lundqvist has been making saves with his head for years, but tonight he took it to another level combining the header with an unbelievable sprawling save.  After making the header on Mark Streit,  John Tavares found P.A. Parenteau with a seemingly open net to shoot at, but Henrik Lundqvist battled across without his stick and robbed him for a save of the year candidate.

The New York Rangers Keep On Rolling

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.

When Stralman Plays Should Rangers Sit Woywitka or Eminger?

Given the New York Rangers current six game winning streak it is hard to see coach John Tortorella changing anything in terms of the lineup, but shortly there will be a decision to make on defense. Anton Stralman was signed to play and add to the offense from the blue line and while he is still being worked into the system his shot is coming soon. The question is whether...

Rangers – Islanders Post Game Thoughts

Chris and I split the post game wrap up tonight. I had a dinner with other movers and shakers early this evening (of course I wore a pocket square, don’t be silly), so we kind of mixed and mashed our thoughts. Here’s what we got. 1st Period For the first half of the first period, the Rangers applied great pressure on the puck carrier and didn’t let the Isles have much time...

Lucky Seven: Rangers Keep Rolling

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...

Save of the Year for Lundqvist?

Last night during my post game thoughts I stated that Henirk Lundqvist's second period diving save on P.A. Parenteau could be save of the year.

Focus Is Rangers Biggest Obstacle To Maintaining Win Streak Against Islanders

The New York Rangers look to extend their winning streak to seven tonight as they head to Long Island tonight to take on the rival Islanders.  On paper it seems like an easy task as the Rangers are now 9-3-3 while the Islanders are 1-6-3 following their 3-1 start.  As Rangers fans know all too well, games in this rivalry don’t turn out how paper would suggest they should...
