The New York Rangers still are not playing well by any stretch of the imagination, but a Ryan Callahan power play goal at 8:41 of the third period and 27 saves from Martin Biron were enough to give them a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.  The Rangers wrapped up a seven-game road trip with a solid 3-2-2 record including a 3-1 trip to Western Canada.  We can focus on how the team has yet to play a good game, but to have those results on the board is something you have to be happy with, even if the level has to rise massively in the future.  Take the points and worry about fixing things as they go. Martin Biron came up huge repeatedly tonight, with no bigger sequence than the one before the Callahan winning goal.  The Jets pinned the Rangers in their own end for nearly two straight minutes, but Biron was able to keep the puck out of the net and the Rangers were actually able to get a power play out of it when Ruslan Fedotenko was taken down on the other end of the...

In a battle of the backup goalies, The New York Rangers’ Martin Biron was the busier and better of the two, facing 28 shots and turning away all but one en route to a 2-1 New York Rangers victory over the Winnipeg Jets.

Dubinsky Again Taking Heat While Callahan Gets Mostly Free Pass

With the New York Rangers offense struggling to generate consistently, as usual, to start the season the focus has shifted to specific players who are underachieving.  The main player seeming to take the brunt of the discussion is Brandon Dubinsky, who has zero goals in the Rangers opening six games.  Coming off a career year, plus a new contract, much is expected of ...

Rangers’ Young Core Might Have Already Peaked

The Rangers are getting a bit nervous about their lack of secondary scoring. The team has just 12 goals in its first six games of the season. A third of those goals have come from Marian Gaborik. Another third have come from a combination of grinder Brandon Prust and sophomore defenseman Ryan McDonagh. That pattern probably won’t be sustainable over the course of an entire...

Time to Go Home

That is probably what every New York Ranger player was saying last night after beating the Winnipeg Jets by a score of 2-1 and ending their seven game roadtrip. For the Blueshirts, last night certainly was not pretty but because they got great goaltending from Martin Biron and some lucky bounces, the team was able to come away with the all important two points. With the win, the...

Rangers Must Regain Identity

The list can go on and on when talking about what's went wrong with the New York Rangers so far this season, but when you look at everything as a collective whole, there's one aspect of their game that is missing that has stood out to me the most; their identity. This year's Rangers have been far from the Black and Blueshirts squad we saw exceed expectations in 2010-11...

Rangers’ Need Secondary Scoring

In order to get everything clicking, the New York Rangers must be able to start getting some secondary scoring. Going into the season, many hockey pundits, bloggers and prognosticators believed that this year’s Rangers’ hockey club had the most depth it has had in a very long time. With that said, it has yet to show up this season for the Blueshirts. Obviously, the team’s...

First day in the new digs

Needless to say, the Rangers would have been perfectly happy coming home to the old arena after the trek they’d just completed. But to come home to the new lockerroom, new benches, and a one-third renovated Madison Square Garden for the home opener tomorrow, and for Brad Richards to be making his home debut, and for Ryan Callahan to be playing his first home game with the ...
