Marian Gaborik is enjoying only his third year as a member of the New York Rangers organization, but already he is a name that will forever be recognized in Blueshirt history.
Gaborik’s breakaway goal on Tim Thomas in the first period of Sunday’s tilt with the Boston Bruins at Madison Square Garden, as you know, was the Slovak Sniper’s 40th of the 2011-12 season. Anyone...
Per Blueshirt Banter, citing the NHL Network, it appears that Henrik Lundqvist is questionable for Thursday’s showdown against the Penguins. Lundqvist hurt his right forearm after diving to stop a Claude Giroux shot in the second period. He took the shot in the forearm on an unprotected area, and was shown on TV in pain as the second period ended.
Personally, I’ve played goalie...
It took long enough, but it looks like Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards are finally clicking the way the Rangers envisioned last July 2nd when they inked Brad Richards to a huge free agent signing. After playing on the same line together with a left wing spot that was basically a revolving door for the [...]
With the top seed in the Eastern Conference all but wrapped up (the Rangers need one point in the next three games, or a Pittsburgh loss of any kind), the attention has turned to the playoffs. The Rangers will either get Florida, Washington, or Buffalo in the first round, and it’s tough to say that the Rangers are more experienced than any of those teams in the playoffs.
The Philadelphia Flyers announced that forward Danny Briere is out indefinitely with an upper-back contusion suffered Sunday when he was decked in the third period by a clean hit from Penguins forward Joe Vitale.
That hit helped instigate sparked an on-ice scuffle that resulted in 62 minutes in penalties, including one fighting major for both teams, and the ejections of Philadelphia...
Scott Hartnell decided to have a little fun at the expense of a Pittsburgh Penguins' fan on Sunday.
During the waning moments of the Philadelphia Flyers' 6-4 victory over their Atlantic Division rival on Sunday, Hartnell mocked the fan - who had a striking resemblance to Hulk Hogan - by doing the former pro wrestler's signature move of cupping his hand to his ear.
Received a few questions from readers wondering what Henrik Lundqvist said to Scott Hartnell at the end of the game last night. Well here it is courtesy of Mr. Hartnell.@HLundqvist30 asked me if I tipped our last goal in. I said stop playing so good against us. #hesgood #wewillbeatthemwhenitcounts #playoffs— Scott Hartnell (@Hartsy19) April 4, 2012
...between this and Giroux begging...
When it comes to Chris Kreider, most people are on the fence about what to do. Many are of the feeling that Kreider will join the Rangers for the playoffs after the Frozen Four is completed. Others, myself included, believe that he will join the organization, but it will be with the Connecticut Whale. Both sides have compelling arguments.
Let’s first kill the first rumor: No one...
Yesterday was another ****** game for the Penguins and now they’re only one point ahead of the Flyers for fourth place in the East. If the Pens still want the Atlantic belt, they have to win their final three and hope the Rangers lose out…if they just want home ice in the first round they might have to do the same after losing three of their last four and four of their last...
Philadelphia Flyers coach Peter Laviolette was fined $10,000 by the NHL for his actions in the waning minutes of Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Laviolette broke a stick and screamed at Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma after Flyers center Daniel Briere was flattened by Pittsburgh's Joe Vitale.
Pittsburgh assistant coach Tony Granato, who got between the coaches...
Danny Briere was injured by a hit from Pittsburgh Center Joe Vitale. Briere is out indefnitely with a back contusion.
The Philadelphia Flyers won an important matchup with the Pittsburgh Penguins yesterday, but the fallout from the game, and the brawl that ensued in the final minutes continued to be felt today.
Danny Briere was hit hard late in the game yesterday by Pittsburgh center...
April 3rd 2012 may be the day that the New York Rangers clinched the top seed in the NHL's Eastern Conference for the playoffs but it is only just the beginning.
As we have said over the years, this is the best job in the world to because we get to see the future of the Rangers today. We get to watch tomorrow's Rangers as they grow up and work to earn that blue jersey...
Danny Briere didn't have to meet with the media today to discuss his injury.
Curiously, the Flyers allowed him to talk even though he is listed as out indefinitely. Every other player who was injured and out for more than day-to-day this season, has been off limits to the media.
But Briere wanted to talk and asked GM Paul Holmgren if he could.
He doesn't have any...
