Interesting hockey day.
First, the holiday roster freeze is now over, which means the Rangers could be shedding some bodies soon. And one of those is probably going to be pretty controversial.
This afternoon at 3:30, Team USA plays Finland in the World Junior Championships on NHL Network.
Your boys start a three-game trip in D.C. against Dale Hunter’s spiraling Capitals at 7:30.
And then at 10 p.m. comes HBO’s “24/7” episode 3, the one that will focus largely, if not almost exclusively, on the Rangers-Flyers Festivus game on Friday.
And in case the Rangers game and post-game aren’t over by 10, HBO will show the episode again at 11.
By the way, this thing where the Empire State Building is going to be lit up in Rangers colors on two sides and Flyers colors on the other two sides … do the powers that be realize that in New York City the Flyers are kind of, you know, hated, despised, loathed?
I mean, I get that this is all one big giant jersey/paraphernalia
BEST OF MAXIM
The Rangers have drafted very well in recent years and even when going off the board (so to speak) Fans have begun to show full trust in the Rangers power brokers because results are starting to show. Whether it’s the NHL roster, the minor league affiliates of the exploits on junior and college circuits there are countless recent examples of successful Rangers drafting.
The New York Rangers won their fifth straight game 3-0 over the New York Islanders and took over first place in the Eastern Conference. Carl Hagelin provided much of the offense with two goals while Henrik Lundqvist took care of all 28 shots that managed to get through for his third shutout of the season.
Both of Hagelin’s goals had Michael Del Zotto and Ryan Callahan...
Larry Brooks at the New York Post has this quote from Michael Del Zotto on why the Rangers have been so successful this season..."Obviously we have some skill, but we do the little things to win games," said Michael Del Zotto. "That's basically the character of our team."...and it's noticeable, not only to Rangers fans, but those around the league as I...
Episode 3 of "HBO 24/7 Flyers Rangers: Road To The NHL Winter Classic" was a combination of on-ice rivalries (featuring often hilarious chirping of opponents) and off-ice holiday gatherings among family, friends and teammates. Teammates in ugly, ugly sweaters.
The highlight of the episode in the latter category was the New York Rangers' ugly sweater party. Do not adjust...
If you read the box score or saw the highlights, much of the focus would be centered on Henrik Lundqvist, Carl Hagelin and Michael Del Zotto. While that is correct to a point, for those that watched the game, or want to go beyond the numbers, the Dubi-Boyle-Mitchell line played just as big, if not a bigger part.
While the Rangers got the win, itâs hard to say they completely...
NEW YORK - Carl Hagelin scored twice for his second multigoal game in the NHL and Henrik Lundqvist stopped all...
TONIGHT’S GAME: The Rangers will face-off against the Washington Capitals tonight at Verizon Center (7:30 p.m.), to begin a three-game road trip culminating in the 2012 Bridgestone Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Blueshirts currently rank first in the Atlantic Division standings, and first in the Eastern Conference, with a record [...]
HBO’s 24/7 series has had many great moments already this season as it follows the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers as they prepare for the Winter Classic, but in my estimation, the appearance in Episode 3 of the above sweater, worn by Rangers defenseman Michael DelZotto at the team’s “Ugly Sweater” holiday party, has [...]
Rangers 3, Isles 0
Carl Hagelin scored twice and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 28 shots as the Rangers blanked the Islanders 3-0 in front of 18,200 at Madison Square Garden. ...
Carl Hagelin scored twice and Marian Gaborik added an empty-net goal to back a shutout by Henrik Lundqvist at the Garden.

Two of the New York Rangers' next three games are against the Florida Panthers, but it's safe to say those aren't the ones that will receive the most attention.
The Panthers try to take advantage of New York's distractions surrounding the Winter Classic as the Rangers close their 2011 slate Friday night in Sunrise, Fla.
After this contest, these clubs will finish...
That is exactly what the New York Rangers were last night in their 4-1 loss to the Washington Capitals.
The team was not terrible but they certainly were not great either. This was a game that with better defensive coverage and less turnovers could have easily been a much better game for the Blueshirts.
What was interesting to see was how the Capitals played. Their team certainly...
The sizzling New York Rangers will take aim at a sixth straight victory when they visit the Washington Capitals for tonight's clash at the Verizon Center.
