AROUND THE WEB
Back in the offseason I spoke frequently about the Rangers need to acquire players who fit their team template. The three main ingredients needed to restock the Rangers were roster balance, skating, and effort. As the deadline approaches, the Rangers should stick to those three ingredients when evaluating their own team and what’s available on the marketplace.
As for Tortorella...
Lost in the glow of last night's huge victory over the Devils was Henrik Lundqvist taking a vicious elbow from teammate Dan Girardi that left the Rangers goaltender dazed and blurry eyed according to Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post.
Here's Lundqvist on his physical condition after the game...

The Rangers succeeded last year because they executed. They followed the system, they executed and they won. Many are looking at the coaching staff for the three game slide, but in reality it’s about execution from the players.
It’s been widely known that coach Tortorella uses a 2-1-2 forecheck, which is not a defensive system. It’s a bit of a misnomer...

In the salary capped NHL, teams gain an advantage when their players produce a bigger value to their team than the price of their contract. It is necessary that several players exceed the value of their contract for a team to win the Stanley Cup. The most likely player to exceed his contract value is a player on an entry level deal. Thus it is very important not to waste the...
Michael Del Zotto scored a short-handed goal and set up Rick Nash's game winner to lead the New York Rangers to a 3-2 victory over the struggling New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.
Carl Hagelin also scored and Henrik Lundqvist had 29 saves as the Rangers won their second game in two nights after a three-game losing streak and moved into a tie for eighth place in the Eastern...
Martin Brodeur is getting close, but Johan Hedberg is expected to be in net again for the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.
He may not need much offensive help against the punchless New York Rangers.
The Devils look to avoid a three-game losing streak as they go for their fifth consecutive win over the visiting Rangers.
Brodeur, who has missed 12 games with a pinched nerve in...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Rangers rookie J.T. Miller fumbled his way to a goal in the third round of a shootout and New York snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday night.
The 20-year-old Miller skated in slowly on Dan Ellis and briefly lost the puck before calmly gathering it and scoring from a tough angle near the goal line. Rick Nash...
The first question everyone was asking after Marc Staal took a vicious puck to the eye was whether he was OK. The next question was whether he would start wearing a visor.
Hurricanes center Jordan Staal spoke about his brother Monday and said Marc is working his way back from the injury. He also had some inside information on the visor question.
“We asked him. I think he’s gonna...

Before the puck dropped on the 2012-13 season, it wasn't hard to find prognosticators willing to say the New York Rangers were going to win the Stanley Cup. On this web site alone, six experts picked the Rangers to reach their first Cup Final since 1994 with three of them choosing the Rangers to win it all.
It wasn't tough to see why the...
During his month and a half in the NHL, JT Miller has proven that no moment is too big for him, including last night when he was put in position to get the Rangers two crucial points in the shootout...
Here's John Tortorella on Millers' shootout winner...
