I’m not as high-tech as Dave is, so you don’t get pictures tonight. Not that you wanted them…
Well, that was fun. The Rangers dropped a laugher tonight to the Devils in Newark by a score of 4-0. Let’s break down the ineptitude…
Devils 1, Rangers 0
This play started in the offensive zone, where Derick Brassard made an ill-advised pass through the middle attempting to find John Moore at the point. Instead, the pass was picked and the Devils went to work in the Rangers’ zone. As the cycle progressed behind the net, Moore got caught wandering and failed to pick up his man. Hank provided a juicy rebound and Andrei Loktionov was left all alone in front to net his first of the year.
Devils 2, Rangers 0
The Suit and I found ourselves in a little disagreement over this one on Twitter. Girardi committed to a questionable pinch, and a nice pass by Jagr saw Adam Henrique streak behind Darrell Powe and Girardi along the boards. Henrique sped in an ripped a sho...

AROUND THE WEB
The Rangers have returned forward Darroll Powe and goaltender Jason Missiaen to the Hartford Wolfpack. Missaen served as Henrik Lundqvist’s backup in last night’s loss to New Jersey, and Powe was a -2 in 8:30 of ice time.
Cam Talbot has been recalled to serve as Hank’s backup for the time being.
Sorry that the ATF is late, wasn’t able to get this done til now. This ATF covers last night’s games, and we will have one tomorrow afternoon to cover tonight’s games.
Danny Kristo notched his third goal of the year and Marek Hrivik netted his first of the year as the Hartford Wolfpack continued its strong start with a 4-3 shootout win over Manchester last night. Aaron Johnson...
After another shaky performance in goal last night, Henrik Lundqvist was pegged, as he often is, as that player that has to be better for the Rangers. It’s not unfamiliar rhetoric surrounding The King, who, by virtue of being the team’s best player, is the one who people point to when things aren’t going well. When a team depends on a guy the way the Rangers depend on Lundqvist...
Martin Biron officially announced his retirement today and will moving on to the next chapter is his life.
According to New York Rangers Martin Biron has officially announced his retirement from the National Hockey League after 16 seasons. Biron has been spending the last several days back at home in Buffalo where he was deciding his next move with his family. His two options were...
The New York Rangers are 2-5, defensively porous and offensively inept. They are discombobulated on the ice and lost for answers. And perhaps worst of all, after cementing their reputation as an iron-willed team over the past three seasons, they are a spineless bunch.
Rick Nash is just one of three key forwards missing from the Rangers’ lineup.
But these are not the New York Rangers...
Connor Allen, the last defenseman cut from the roster during preseason, notched his first professional goal last night in Hartford’s 3-2 win over Portland. Danny Kristo also scored in the contest, with his goal holding up as the game winner. The scoring lines from all prospects from the AHL, CHL, NCAA, and international play are below.

October 19th, 1993, Madison Square Garden, NY: After having their three game win streak snapped by the Flyers three nights earlier, the Rangers looked to get back on track at home against an expansion team, usually a recipe for a win. Inspired by the 1992 Disney movie, “The Mighty Ducks” staring Emilio Estevez, the NHL awarded a […]

I’ll be the first to admit: when I heard the news last June that Canucks GM Mike Gillis had hired John Tortorella as coach, I feared an unmitigated disaster. By all accounts, Tortorella had worn out his welcome with the New York Rangers, disrespecting journalists and losing the dressing room (or at least stars like Marian Gaborik and Henrik Lundqvist).
To me, and to many Canucks...
Coming into this matchup, both the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils were struggling offensively. The Devils had yet to win a game in regulation this season. The Rangers are trying to fight through tough losses and an inconsistent start to their season. Both teams are coming into this game trying to prove something. […]
After thinking about it it with my family, I've decided to retire as a player and move on to a new chapter. Thank you all for your support.

Word is Biron will take a broadcasting job soon.
Now that’s more like it! It’s always a little easier to sit down in front of the lap top to write the morning after a Rangers win. In their first contest played in the Eastern Time Zone and against a Metro Division rival, the Rangers shut out frequent postseason antagonist Washington 2 – 0. Time […]
