Rangers embarrass themselves in Jersey, lose 4-0

Drew Hallowell/Getty Images I’m not as high-tech as Dave is, so you don’t get pictures tonight.  Not that you wanted them… Well, that was fun.  The Rangers dropped a laugher tonight to the Devils in Newark by a score of 4-0.  Let’s break down the ineptitude… Devils 1, Rangers 0 This play started in the offensive zone, where Derick Brassard made an ill-advised pass through...

Early season struggles early for New York Rangers’ netminder

After another shaky performance in goal last night, Henrik Lundqvist was pegged, as he often is, as that player that has to be better for the Rangers. It’s not unfamiliar rhetoric surrounding The King, who, by virtue of being the team’s best player, is the one who people point to when things aren’t going well. When a team depends on a guy the way the Rangers depend on Lundqvist...

Injuries hampering New York Rangers to start season

The New York Rangers are 2-5, defensively porous and offensively inept. They are discombobulated on the ice and lost for answers. And perhaps worst of all, after cementing their reputation as an iron-willed team over the past three seasons, they are a spineless bunch. Rick Nash is just one of three key forwards missing from the Rangers’ lineup. But these are not the New York Rangers...

Breaking down Hank’s positional adjustment

Greg Fiume/Getty Images As we all know by now, the Rangers have gotten off to a slow start this season.  One of the more surprising factors in Blueshirt’s early malaise was the rather pedestrian play of all-world goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.  It wasn’t necessarily that he was playing outright badly, just far below the lofty expectations that the fan base has for #30.  After...

Tortorella’s Tactics Trump the Truculence (so far…)

I’ll be the first to admit: when I heard the news last June that Canucks GM Mike Gillis had hired John Tortorella as coach, I feared an unmitigated disaster. By all accounts, Tortorella had worn out his welcome with the New York Rangers, disrespecting journalists and losing the dressing room (or at least stars like Marian Gaborik and Henrik Lundqvist). To me, and to many Canucks...

What, What, What, Episode IV: Caps Capped by Cally and Crew

Now that’s more like it! It’s always a little easier to sit down in front of the lap top to write the morning after a Rangers win.
