The New York Rangers enter tonight's game against the Montreal Canadiens -- the first between the two this season -- having won their last two games against the San Jose Sharks and Anaheim Ducks, and with a 5-3-3 record on the year. The Canadiens, on the other hand, have won their last four games after struggling early, and are 5-5-2 in their first twelve games. Both clubs have just recently begun to find their games and play how they intended to going into the season, so neither will want to forfeit their streaks with a loss tonight.  Focusing on the Habs, they started the season 1-5-2 and fell into an early hole that looked as if it were going to handicap them early on. However, having won their past four games, Montreal has leveled things out at .500, which most recently featured a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night. Goaltender Carey Price has played a major role in the team's success, only allowing five total goals during their win streak.  For the Rang...

Lofty Expectations For Avery

When Sean Avery returns to the lineup tonight, it will be with very high expectations from the fans. Chants of “We Want Avery” rang down from the blue seats from the moment the Rangers touched home ice last week, and have continued in spurts throughout this homestand. When the Rangers play well, the chants are quiet, and sometimes met with harsh criticism from fans. But when...

Sean Avery is back for NY Rangers

Many Ranger fans love Sean Avery. Coach John Tortorella does not. Injuries have left him no choice and Saturday night the player that has antagonized rivals and had a rule named after him makes his regular-season debut. Most AHL players do not have banners demanding their recall at the big league affiliate's home opener. Most healthy scratches do not have their names chanted...

If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It

The Rangers are in the middle of a four game winning streak. A streak where they have looked dominant against some teams, and managed to get victories in games where they may not have shown up for the majority of the game. The top three lines are clicking, the defense pairs are playing above and beyond anything expected, and the goaltending has been spectacular. But yet, there are...

Wojtek Wolski Out; Sean Avery In Against Montreal

… as I said over the last week, I would much rather see Avery in against the smaller, faster Montreal team than last night against Anaheim.  This groin issue for Wolski is going to end up costing him a season eventually. This is happening way to much and way to soon into the season. Let’s [...]

Will Sean Avery Be Wasted By John Tortorella?

<img border="0 src="http://sports-at-work.com/ http:="" bleacherreport.com="" images="" pixel.gif"="" mce_src="http://bleacherreport.com/images/pixel.gif" "="">If one conclusion can be drawn from the handful of NHL games played thus far, it is simply that the Rangers are desperately lacking in terms...

Avery To Start Montreal With Wolski Out (Groin); Rupp Knee Surgery Looming

The moment many have been waiting for has arrived as Andrew Gross is reporting that Sean Avery will be in the lineup tomorrow against Montreal.  Wolski is having an MRI on the groin and the results will be out tomorrow.  The New York Rangers will be without Wojtek Wolski who is out once again with a groin injury.  Should there be anything serious then he would likely...

Rangers top Canadiens as Avery returns

Erik Christensen scored one of New York's three first-period goals, and the Rangers overcame a 1-for-9 effort on the power play to hang on for a 5-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Rangers place C Rupp on injured reserve

The New York Rangers placed center Mike Rupp on injured reserve Saturday. Rupp is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee this week. Controversial wing Sean Avery is expected to receive ice time in place of the 31-year-old Rupp, who collected one goal and 14 penalty minutes in seven games this season.

The Rangers Are Awfully Hot Right Now

A week ago, the Rangers were in panic mode and summoning Sean Avery from Hartford in an attempt to inject some life in a team that showed very little of it through the first nine games of the season. Mission accomplished, although it is hard to say just what Avery has done to turn the team's fortunes around. He has played sparingly in two games, but the Rangers have won four...

Habs-Rangers Analysis

Les Habitants défait! French just kind of rolls off your tongues doesn’t it? I think it does. It’s the best language to swear in. “Nom de dieu de putain de bordel de ***** de saloperie de connard d’enculer ta mère. It’s like wiping your arse with silk. I love it.” If you can place that quote, silk tie for you! Anywho, the Rangers defeated the Canadiens in a very...
