The New York Rangers announced this afternoon that they have dealt F Brandon Mashinter to Chicago for fellow F and former first-round draft choice, Kyle Beach. Beach, the 11th overall selection in the 2008 draft, has yet to debut in the NHL. Mashinter meanwhile has 23 games of big league experience, 10 with the Rangers, […]

In a bit of a surprising move, the Rangers have traded forward Brandon Mashinter to the Chicago Blackhawks for forward Kyle Beach. Mashinter. In ten total games with the Rangers over two seasons, Mashinter was held off the score sheet with ten PIMS. With Hartford this year, Mash had a line of 1-6-7 in 11 games with 15 PIMs.
Beach, currently with the Rockford Icedogs of the AHL, has...
Per Larry Brooks, Benoit Pouliot’s time in the lineup has come to an end. The recently recalled J.T. Miller will take his spot in the lineup, skating with Derick Brassard and Carl Hagelin. The other lineup change is Justin Falk in for Michael Del Zotto. It appears Alain Vigneault is matching Del Zotto and Falk based on opposition. The Devils have a little more snarl in the lineup...
Per the Rangers Twitter feed, Derek Dorsett will be out tonight with a lingering wrist issue. Taylor Pyatt will return to the lineup in Dorsett’s place. Also, AV noted an unspecified defenseman is banged up and the defensemen will be a game time decision. We can speculate all we want, but we know it isn’t John Moore that is banged up, since AV confirmed he will return tonight...
The Rangers have recalled forward J.T. Miller from the Hartford Wolf Pack. In six games with the Pack this year, Miller has a line of 5-1-6 with 6 PIMs and a +4 rating. Miller has spent most of his time with the Rangers this season, dressing for 15 games and a 1-1-2 line with a -4 rating and 8 PIMs.
With both Taylor Pyatt and Benoit Pouliot struggling, it is expected that Miller...
You hate to say an 82-game season that stretches from October to April can be defined by nine games in December. You are taught to avoid such inflated talk. But the New York Rangers, who begin a nine-game homestand Saturday against the Devils, may well see their fate determined in the coming weeks.
When the team began the season with nine games on the road – the first five out...
Rangers GM Glen Sather has taken a lot of flak over the years – and deservedly so – for handing out contracts both imprudent and lavish. He dipped deep into the team’s well again to extend goalie Henrik Lundqvist, but this time, Sather was justified.
This was the right move. The only move, really. For the team can afford to pay Lundqvist $59 million over the next seven years...
If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you know that we love the shows where the Rangers talk with the coaches to discuss the x’s and o’s of the game. We were big fans of “Behind the Bench” with John Tortorella, and we are equally fans of “The AV Squad” with Alain Vigneault. MSG was kind enough to provide us with some quotes from tonight’s all-new episode...
It’s as if saying the words “five hundred” around the Rangers nowadays is akin to cursing.
That’s because the Blueshirts have spent just about the past month hovering around that line of mediocrity, with wins and losses evening out in equal fashion and keeping them from separating themselves as either a good team or a bad one.
“Good teams need to string winning streaks...
December is a big month for the Rangers. After losing a sloppy game at home against the Jets, the Rangers played better in their win in Buffalo. Now the Devils are in town to kick off nine straight home games for the Blueshirts. Beating Jersey is very important, as the Rangers are two points up on the Devils with a game in hand, but taking hold of this nine game home...

Now that all the hemming and hawing over Henrik Lundqvist’s contract situation has been completed, Cam Talbot’s future has been an oft-discussed topic. Whatever you may think about the specific details of the contract, Hank is going to be manning the pipes at the Garden until 2020-2021.
This brings us back to Talbot. His emergence this season as a...
The Rangers are in Buffalo tonight to take on the league’s worst team that is currently in a state of flux. Since these two teams last faced off, the Sabres have fired their head coach (Ron Rolston) and their GM (Darcy Regier). Pat Lafontaine was hired as President, and charged with finding a GM and a coach. As of now Ted Nolan is the interim head coach of the...
NEW YORK — The New York Rangers have a goalie for life. On Wednesday, goalie Henrik Lundqvist agreed to a seven-year, $59.5 million extension with the Rangers. Currently in his final year of a six-year, $41.25 million deal, he is set to become the highest paid goalie in the NHL beginning next season. ”There were […]
Henrik Lundqvist has recently signed an extension worth 8.5 million dollars a year to continue stopping pucks for the Rangers. What would such debonair a man do with that kind of change? Thats 55.2 million Swedish Kroners!

The New York Rangers' recent struggles at Madison Square Garden can be traced to last month's meeting with the New Jersey Devils.
Henrik Lundqvist and Rick Nash could be key to avenging that defeat.
The stars look to get the Rangers untracked at home while helping them avoid a third straight defeat to the Devils for the first time in almost five years Saturday night.
