The Rangers eliminated the NJ Devils from playoff contention with a 4-1 victory at the Garden today. For a box score click here.
Wins don't feel much better than that. Especially against a bitter rival who eliminated you from the playoffs just a season ago and found themselves on life support. Sweet, sweet revenge...
Na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye.....
Something had to have been said the Ranger locker room after the Flyers loss last Tuesday.... 18 goals in the last 3 games??? Someone flipped the Rangers playoff switch to 'on.'
The Rangers lead the NHL with 41 goals in the month of April. Sometimes coaching is the issue, sometimes its personnel. I think the answer as to why the Rangers were struggling scoring goals has become quite obvious.
Torts can't talk enough about board play and how the Rangers need to generate offense along the wall. That point couldn't be more relevant on the Rangers first two goals. On the first goal, Hagelin kep...

If you watched the last two New York Rangers games you would never know they were ranked 17th in goals per game with a 2.5 percentage. The Rangers scored in bunches on Friday night in Buffalo with an eight goal outburst, one night after putting up six against the Panthers at home. Led by Brad Richards, who finally [...]

Brad Richards has been a bit of a disappointment this year. He hasn’t been consistent, and he hasn’t been that top line center and powerplay quarterback that the Rangers thought they were getting. That said, Richards has been getting hot at the right time, and his hat trick last night could be just the beginning of a strong run for the veteran...
Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that Henrik Lundqvist will make his 12th straight start tomorrow in Florida against the last place Panthers.
...i don't care if the Panthers are the worst team in the Eastern Conference, the Rangers are hanging on to a playoff spot by the skin of their teeth and I, for one, couldn't be happier to see Lundqvist back in there tomorrow...
Before the season started I wrote a piece right here on Ranger Nation (which you can read by clicking here) arguing that for the Rangers to succeed and take full advantage of their two snipers (Nash and Gaborik) this season Derek Stepan was going to have to step up. My rationale was simple; I figured [...]
The Rangers played one of their most complete games of the season as they eliminated the Devils from postseason contention, winning 4-1. The Rangers were the better team throughout led once again by Callahan and Stepan offensively with Henrik Lundqvist again in strong form in net. The Rangers are peaking at the right time. You have to enjoy the Devils mocks from the crowd toward...
There is no way around it, Brad Richards has struggled mightily this season. Richards seems as though he has lost a step, and his better days may be behind him. This week he started proving the naysayers wrong by … Continue reading →
After Brad Richards recorded his first career hat trick against the Sabres last night, John Tortorella said this about the alternate captain's struggles this season (via Bergen Record)...
“He’s been good all year as far as his attitude. He’s a pro. He’s been through a lot of ups and downs. He knows more is expected of him. He has still made plays along the way, though...
For the second straight year, EA Sports is holding a fan vote to determine the cover of NHL14.
And for the Rangers the two representatives are Ryan Callahan and........Carl Hagelin? Huh?
Listen, I love Hagelin, but how in the heck is he in the running over guys like Rick Nash, Henrik Lundqvist and Derek Stepan?
And actually, if you look at most of the teams' representatives...

The Connecticut Whale did themselves no favors over their last six games of the year, dropping all six games and getting just a single point as they pushed to make the playoffs. Following last night’s 5-1 loss to Portland, the Whale need help to make the playoffs. They need losses by both Hershey and Norfolk in order to back into the playoffs as the eighth seed.
Check after the...
