The Rangers fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins today by the score of 3-0. For a box score, click here.
Little to no positives to take away from today's game... looked like a typical Rangers-Pens game to me.
If not for Hank, the Rangers are probably looking at a 4-0 deficit after one and possibly Glen Sather working the phones in a room somewhere, if he isn't already after that third period.
Rangers came out flying to start the second, but couldn't finish their chances. Gaborik and Nash both had good chances on Fleury in front of the net in the second but couldn't put anything away.
Nash pointless in his last 3 games, all losses. Not a coincidence, the entire offense runs through him.
Could be time for another roster shake-up once again, calling up Kreider couldn't hurt at this point.
Hamrlik's half-assed attempt to block the cross ice pass from Jeffrey to Dupuis to make in 3-0 was pathetic to watch. Rangers are beginnin...

Chris Kreider scored the first goal for the Connecticut Whale of the AHL in their 3-0 win over the Manchester Monarchs (LA Kings). Kreider’s goal, a shorthanded goal, was the eventual game winner, scored on a breakaway. Other goals were scored by Brandon Mashinter (on the powerplay) and Andrew Carroll. Kyle Jean, Kris Newbury, Andrew Yogan, Logan Pyett, and Mike Vernace all added...
The Pittsburgh Penguins are known for their explosive offense, but Sunday’s tilt with the Bruins was a defensive affair. The two teams combined for just three goals, and the game-winner came courtesy of an unlikely source.
Northeastern alum Joe Vitale scored for just the sixth time in his NHL career — and the first time since last February — with 32 seconds remaining in the...
I had eye surgery on Friday, so I was unable to get the ATF yesterday. This post will cover all games played by the Rangers prospects on Thursday night and Friday night. Today’s (Saturday’s) games will be covered tomorrow, as per usual.
The playoffs –or playoff type scenarios– have begun for almost all of the Rangers prospects. Oscar Lindberg and Jesper Fasth have begun their...
Well, the Rangers got dominated in Pittsburgh today. We can’t even say it was unexpected. The Rangers were absolutely dominated in the first period to the tune of a -24 Corsi (33 shot attempts for Pittsburgh, 9 for the Rangers). It was a miracle that the Rangers were only down a goal in the first, mostly due to the play of Henrik Lundqvist. That said, the entire team –including...
During a segment on Hockey Night In Canada's "Hot Stove Tonight," Elliotte Friedman says that the Rangers might have discussed a potential trade for Marian Gaborik with the Vancouver Canucks, but it wasn't a good match.
Friedman adds that as part of his limited no trade clause Gaborik has given the Rangers 10 teams he cannot be traded to.
Marc-Andre Fleury couldn't help it. With the Pittsburgh Penguins' franchise record for career shutouts in sight late in the third period against the New York Rangers on Saturday, the talented if occasionally erratic goalie let his mind drift.
''I wanted it so bad,'' Fleury said. ''I tried to not jinx it. I was touching wood, but yeah I was looking...
After dropping the first two meetings on home ice, the New York Rangers tried their luck on the road in Pittsburgh for a matinee affair with the division leading Penguins. Pittsburgh is currently riding a seven game winning streak and is tied with the Montreal Canadiens for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with 40 [...]

Hartford, CT, March 17, 2013 - In the Connecticut Whale locker room on Saturday night, Jason Missiaen’s goaltending partner, Cam Talbot, gave a shout in passing, “There ya go, Mish! Big as a house!” The mild-mannered, six-foot-eight goaltender gave pause to flash a grin before continuing to praise his defense for help with rebounds and screens. The Chatham...
While many expected a tight race in the Atlantic Division, Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins appear to be head and shoulders above the competition.
That shouldn't come as much of a surprise to the New York Rangers.
Hoping to stay unbeaten in March, Pittsburgh tries for a seventh consecutive victory over New York as these division rivals square off in a matinee showdown...

Hartford, CT, March 16, 2013 - Six days’ rest proved key for the Connecticut Whale, as they picked up a critical 3-0 win over the Manchester Monarchs on Saturday night in Hartford. Manchester, sitting in the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference prior to the game, has not bested the Whale, who moved into a tie for seventh with the win, at the XL Center this...
The Hotstove panel on Hockey Night In Canada discussed the current NHL trade market and right now the asking price is very high.
