New York Rangers
Kirk Muller is quickly getting a feel for how much work he has to do with the Carolina Hurricanes.
The New York Rangers topped the Canes 5-3 Thursday at the RBC Center. That was Muller's second loss since being named coach Monday, but the Canes are winless in their last five games and suffered their fouth straight regulation loss.
Muller kept the media out of the locker room a few extra minutes as he talked with the team after the loss, which dropped Carolina to 8-15-4.
I said, 'Hey, no one said this thing is going to change overnight,'" Muller said. "We've got to do baby steps."
Continuing to focus on the positives, Muller praised Anthony Stewart coming to Jeff Skinner's defense in the third period after the Rangers' Brian Boyle went after Skinner's head along the boards. Stewart received an instigator penalty that put the Rangers on a power play, but Muller didn't mind.
"I thought it was great," Muller said. "We're ...

After winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL's rookie of the year last season, many people throughout the hockey world wondered if Carolina Hurricanes' forward Jeff Skinner would experience any kind of drop off in 2011-12. In 26 games this season, the answer would have to be a resounding NO.Skinner currently leads the team in scoring with 22 points. At just 19 years old, Skinner...
Derek Stepan crawled off the ice during the third period of last night's game against the Carolina Hurricanes after taking a shot to the leg, but was able to return for his next shift. However, after the game he was seen limping in the locker room and now, today, he is reportedly not participating in Rangers practice per Andrew Gross.
There's no word on whether the coaches...
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Ryan McDonagh, Marian Gaborik and Sean Avery scored in a 4:53 span of the second period and the New York Rangers rallied to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 on Thursday night for their fourth straight win.
Ryan Callahan and Michael Sauer had the other goals for the Rangers, who got points from 14 players and earned their 11th win in 13 games. Martin Biron made...
The NHL released their Week 2 results of All Star balloting and Dan Girardi has fell out of the Top 20 after an impressive Week 1 showing at #18.There was never the excitement behind the campaign that there was with Sean Avery last year.So it is with much regret that I am shutting down the Girardi write-in campaign.If you still want to vote for him, I absolutely encourage you to...
… talk about going from being a talked about player who started to make a name for himself to being placed on waivers only a short 2 weeks later. “Bel Biv Deveaux” was his own “poison” for his Rangers career.
… well deserved. Still shocked people were saying “trade Sauer” instead of Dubinsky. Unbelievable.
Katie Strang at ESPN NY reports that Andre Deveaux has been placed on waivers today....assuming he clears and gets sent back to Whale....no Hagelin or Mitchell without Deveaux suspension, so we've got to give him a big thanks for that.Reports from practice state that Brad Richards and Dan Girardi were given maintenance days.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e...
Canes forward Anthony Stewart said there never was any doubt, any hesitation.
Brian Boyle of the New York Rangers hit Jeff Skinner along the boards in the third period of Thursday's game -- a dangerous hit, in Stewart's eyes. Just like that, Stewart went after Boyle, throwing punches, drawing a fighting major but also an instigator minor.
"It was one of our star players...

Last night, the New York Rangers proved they can stand up to the so-called elite. Their 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins was broadcast on Versus for the entire country to see, putting the team in the spotlight for perhaps the first time since the mid-90s. While Versus, and NHL on NBC for that matter, have pushed the big-market Rangers on...
Aaron Voros scored his first goal as a member of the CT Whale to help lead his team to a 4-2 victory over the Hershey Bears.Tim Erixon was scratched due to an injury he sustained in the previous game.Pavel Valentenko scored the game winner, while Mats Zuccarello chipped in with his fourth goal of the season....it's only a matter of time before Voros is skating on a line with...
The Rangers had a light practice on the last day of November, a month in which they lost just two games. Smiles were abundant and confidence was evident.
At 13-5-3, the Rangers have the best points-per-game record in the NHL and even goalie Henrik Lundqvist is wondering just how good...

Do it. Get him. This team is still, imho 1 more legitimate offensive weapon away from being a Stanley Cup favorite. You have the chance to get a multiple 30 goal scorer on a favorable contract who is just now entering the prime of his career, you do it. End of story. This is why the Rangers have these assets, to make moves when they are ready…and they are ready, now.
