NEW YORK, February 13, 2013 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has assigned defenseman Steve Eminger to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL) for conditioning. Eminger, 29, has skated in four contests this season, having made his season debut on January 23 against Boston. He has not dressed in six of the Rangers last seven games. Eminger is four points shy of 100 career NHL points, having registered 19 goals and 77 assists in 457 career regular season games. The Woodbridge, Ontario native was acquired by the Rangers from Anaheim in exchange for Aaron Voros and Ryan Hillier on July 9, 2010. He was originally selected by the Washington Capitals as a first round choice, 12th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. Follow Ian on Twitter @soxanddawgs.

Eminger loaned to AHL on conditioning stint

Per Andrew Gross, citing the AHL transaction website, the Rangers have loaned defenseman Steve Eminger to the Connecticut Whale on a two-week conditioning stint. Eminger has played just four games this year for the Rangers, which includes just one game in February. In each of those games, Eminger was used for less than ten minutes per game in each of those contests. The Whale...

Don’t expect Boyle to be moved any time soon

(Scott Levy/NHLI/Getty Images) As Brian Boyle continues to sit in the press box, there have been some rumblings about trading him for some defensive depth. There’s some sound logic behind this, as the Rangers desperately need a sixth defenseman capable of 10-15 minutes a night, and Brian Boyle appears to be an asset that has seen a rookie take his roster spot. It makes sense honestly...

Should the Rangers trade for Ryan O’Reilly?

Ryan O’Reilly Last week on Twitter I posed the simple question: Would you trade Derek Stepan straight up for Ryan O’Reilly?  At the time it was just a hypothetical, but last night the Denver Post’s Adrian Dater reported that an O’Reilly trade is likely going to happen. O’Reilly, of course, is the last of the three star RFAs to continue holding out into the season. Both...

Practice Notes: Boyle back in the lineup, Kreider appears to be scratched

Per Jim Cerny, Torts did some re-shuffling of his lines at practice. The biggest move appears to be inserting Brian Boyle back into the lineup, and scratching Chris Kreider. Boyle was centering a line with Taylor Pyatt and JT Miller. This move is likely about two things: Getting Boyle back in the lineup, and giving Miller his fifth and final game as a way to rebound from his poor...

Musings; Rangers attack the Island edition

I am Nash. HEAR ME ROAR It’s Musings day. I’m in Germany as you read this  on a game day, so enjoy. Unfortunately the Islanders game is the first game I’ll not have caught live this year to any extent but I’m sure you’ll all cope without me. The Rangers win in Boston; if that finishes 3-0 then half of Ranger nation will be booking time off to attend the Cup parade. It...

Benchings "Pissing" Boyle Off

Matt Kalman at NHL.com reports that the recent string of healthy scratches are not sitting well with Brian Boyle... "I'm trying not to think about anything, really, honestly. I'm just trying to come work every day and work as hard as I can because it's ... I've said it before, I didn't play as well as I think I could've, but I know I can be a good...

Rangers Schedule Eases Up, Primed to Make a Run

Tonight's matchup with the Bruins marks the New York Rangers' 12th game of the condensed 48-game schedule or, in other words, the quarter pole of the season. If the Blueshirts win their regular-season series finale in Boston, they'll be 7-5 and trending upwards.  After the panic of a 1-3 start, New York has corrected itself by winning five of the last seven games...

Rick Nash shows off some amazing moves en route to Carl Hagelin’s goal

This is the type of play that made the New York Rangers want Rick Nash so badly.  He singlehandedly made this goal possible with his display of sheer athleticism and awesome hands.  All Carl Hagelin had to do was put the puck in the empty net with all of the Boston Bruins defenseman pre-occupied with Nash.  If the Rangers can get their act together in time for the playoffs, they...

Too Many Men Penalties Have to Be a Practical Joke

Through 12 games this season, the Rangers have six, count em, six too many men on the ice penalties. Yes, that means the Rangers have a 50% chance of being assessed one tonight. I didn't think a team could do that if they tried. It's the most basic part of the game of hockey. I remember learning how to properly administer a line change in Pee Wee hockey. And it's...

Tenacious B’s Take One Point In 4-3 Shootout Loss to Rangers

And last night’s 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Rangers only stand to prove that points can be stolen, and enough tenacity from a team can bear good results. Brad Marchand scored with 43 seconds left to tie the game against the Rangers That being said, the Bruins...

Seven Minutes of Poor Play leads to 4-3 Shootout loss for Blueshirts

Had it not been for a terrible span of seven minutes in the second period, the New York Rangers may have never lost 4-3 to the New York Islanders in a shootout at Madison Square Garden. After going up 2-0 in the first period, the Rangers stopped skating and allowed the Islanders to skate all over them for the first seven minutes. The result was three quick goals and the loss of...

Bruins Show They Have Hearts of Champions, Lose in Shootout 4-3

Boston MA. The New York Rangers came in tonight on their second trip to the Garden and their third meeting with the Bruins over the first month of the shortened NHL season.
