Both Henrik Lundqvist and John Tortorella said there were no concerns about the goaltender's health. But as for the rest of the team, the Rangers need to work on their "overall game, top to bottom" after they "sucked from head to toe" in Saturday night's 2-0 loss to the Oilers. That's what Tortorella said after the Blueshirts practiced at the scene of the crime Sunday morning.

Video: Tortorella Postgame: "We Sucked From Head To Toe," No Questions

Rangers head coach John Tortorella was not in a very good mood following his team's embarassing performance against the Edmonton Oilers and made that clear by saying "we sucked from head to toe."

No One Cares That Rangers Lose Because Lundqvist Is Ok

The New York Rangers lost to the Edmonton Oilers last night in what was a very entertaining game to watch, despite the loss and shutout. But, when Henrik Lundqvist removed himself from the game midway through the third period, every single Ranger fan said “oh crap”. But, according to the MSG broadcast, the All-World goaltender was just cramping up. The Oilers are a very fast...

John Tortorella Holds Outstanding Press Conference: We Sucked from Head to Toe

Rangers coach John Tortorella conducted one of the best press conferences we’ve seen recently. And by press conference, we mean brief monologue. Tortorella was upset with his team’s 2-0 loss to the Oilers Saturday night, a game where they gave up a goal and assist to top overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. He was also frustrated [...]

Time For Tortorella To Stop Media Antics, Face The Questions

There is no questioning the fire of New York Rangers coach John Tortorella.  It is that fire that makes him entertaining in a number of his press conferences both in confrontation with reporters like Larry Brooks and many appreciate the blunt nature to which he will discuss a number of topics.  However, last night following the 2-0 loss to the Edmonton Oilers, Tortorella...

Henrik Lundqvist Quote: It Was Nothing Serious

It was nothing serious. I’ve had issues with my skates, and the last few days I’ve had a lot of pressure on my feet and I couldn’t move the way I wanted to move. Today it was pressure on my left foot. We tried to fix it during intermissions because it was bothering me the [...]

Postgame: Rangers Hit New Low in Loss to Oilers, Coach Adds to Embarrassment

Earlier in the day I was filling out an interview and one of the questions asked which of the Rangers' games so far this season was the worst in my opinion. Had I filled that interview out tomorrow, instead of today, tonight's 2-0 loss to the Edmonton Oilers would have been my answer.  There are no excuses for what we saw out of this team tonight. Everyone knew the Oilers...

Short and sweet after losing 2-0 in Edmonton last night.

Lundqvist Starting, Bell In; Woywitka, Wolski, Sauer Out

Looking for their third straight win the New York Rangers are tinkering with their lineup inserting Brendan Bell on defense and scratching Jeff Woywitka.  Replacing Woywitka is not a big surprise as he struggled against Calgary, especially in the third period giving up multiple chances and taking a penalty with just 2:44 left in regulation. One change the Rangers are not making...

Corey Crawford, Kari Lehtonen, Henrik Lundqvist among Top 5 goalies exceeding expectations

Welcome to Center Ice Chat’s Top 5, an irregular series counting off performances by position this season. Today, we introduce where the success is in the crease so far.

Rangers' Boyle heats up after slow start

EDMONTON, Alberta -- After appearing completely out of sorts the first three games of the season, Brian Boyle neither was looking for nor received a pat on the back from John Tortorella and his assistant coaches. Indeed, the center referenced a different body part in relating the tone of the...

Too early for Torts to dissect Rangers

John Tortorella refuses to "dissect" the issues plaguing his club, but after Monday's 2-1 win in Winnipeg, the Rangers coach provided an accurate summary of his team's 3-2-2 start on the road. "We score a couple, we're ugly as hell, and our goaltending has certainly given us an opportunity right on through here," Tortorella said. "So we're...

Mike Sauer Getting Closer to Return

The Rangers need to improve their overall game, which was the message from head coach John Tortorella during this morning's practice in Edmonton before the team flew out to Winnipeg. But where they have been their weakest is on defense and part of that is due to the fact that both Marc Staal and Michael Sauer have been out of the lineup. While there still has been no updates...

Pregame: Rangers Conclude Road Trip in Winnipeg

The New York Rangers want nothing more than to be home right now since they've been on the road since game one of the regular season, but there is one last game to play before they do so and that will come tonight against the Winnipeg Jets. This will be the Rangers' first return to Winnipeg since 1995, so there's a lot of history that goes along with tonight's match...
