I’ve been (not so) secretly rooting for a Rangers-Devils playoff series since the opening round. A Rangers-Devils series would be pretty beneficial for me at work, but as a fan I know it would have all the drama and, more importantly, fun we want from any playoff series. And that’s what we’re going to get. [...]

Following The New York Rangers 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils John Tortorella was giving a presser and a phone went off, which didn’t make J.T. too pleased. Jay Greenberg of The New York Post was the unlucky lad who had forgotten to put his phone on silent, and when it interrupted Torts, the gloves came off. Torts responded in typical and glorious fashion with profanity...
Press Release New York, May 15, 2012 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has recalled six players from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL) – goaltender Cam Talbot; defensemen Tim Erixon and Dylan McIlrath; and forwards J.T. Miller, Kris Newbury and Casey Wellman. Talbot, [...]
Another series for the Rangers ends in seven games and another series begins with just one day of rest in between. This time around, the six seeded Devils stand between the Rangers and a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals.
The Devils are here after beating third seeded Florida in seven games in the first round and fifth seeded Philadelphia in five games in the second round. From the...
It's been 18 years since Stephane Matteau forever etched his name into hockey history with a wraparound goal that launched the New York Rangers-New Jersey Devils rivalry well beyond just a common border war.
Matteau ended Game 7 of the 1994 Eastern Conference finals with an unlikely goal in double overtime, beating goalie Martin Brodeur and the Devils and sending the Rangers...
I'd open this by saying that the day has finally come in which the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils open the Eastern Conference Finals, but it's only been one full day since the Blueshirts knocked off the Washington Capitals in Game 7 of that semifinal series. Therefore, there hasn't been much opportunity for the lead-up hype to expand, but then again, a Rangers...

Atlantic Division rivals meet in the Eastern Conference Finals in what is a rematch of their classic 1994 Conference Final series (a series the Rangers went on to win in seven game on the road to winning the Stanley cup). A matchup of two of the best goaltenders from the last decade, the Devils’ Martin Brodeur and the Rangers’ Henrik...
Well that didn’t go exactly as we had hoped. I wasn’t 100% confident that we could go in there and win Game 1 but I did think that we would have generated a little more offense than we did. We knew the Rangers do a great job at blocking shots but even though we knew it, it’s still so frustrating to see. I’m not going to take anything away from Lundqvist, he is a good goalie...
