Shut the front door.
That’s how you smother a good team, how you make their night miserable, how you bounce back from a loss.
Fact: The Rangers are quickly becoming the team you don’t want to play, because they will make you absorb a beating, fight for every inch and for every puck, and will give you every reason to give up and get to the lockerroom … and with many icepacks when you do.
Next team to be tested: Canadiens tonight.
1) Is it possible, still, after these last two games, that people don’t appreciate Brian Boyle? My goodness, how? Never mind that he finally scored a goal. Guy was a beast all night long, starting when he ran over Phil Kessel, who didn’t bother competing. Seriously, can you really understand what these Rangers are about, and not think Boyle’s been terrific? And his buddy/roomie Brandon Prust was a predator, too. Seems he might be getting healthy lately.
2) Because of what the Rangers have become this last season and a half, this boun...

The Rangers have returned forward Kris Newbury to the CT Whale of the AHL. Newbury’s second stint with the Rangers lasted one game, where he was on the ice for three Canadiens goals. Newbury finished the game with under seven minutes of ice time and a -3 rating. He looked incredibly lost against a much faster Montreal team.
Newbury’s return to CT means that one of Brandon Dubinsky...

It was quite clear going into this game that the Rangers needed to play better hockey, despite having won five of their last six prior to tonight. They did that and managed the blank the red hot Maple Leafs, 3-0, to again take over the top spot in the National Hockey League. For the first time in several weeks, the Blueshirts again played a complete team game, and as they’ve shown...
Sean Avery just can't buy a break these days. It's bad enough that he's been waived by the Rangers for the second time this year and is currently playing with their AHL affiliate, the Hartford Whale. Now, there's been a rumor floating around the Internet that Avery was benched on Friday because he spit on the Whale's coach, Ken Gernander. The Rangers have come...
Andrew Gross reports that the Rangers have recalled Kris Newbury for tonight's game in Montreal. Newbury is likely just precautionary in case both Brandon Dubinsky (shoulder) and Ruslan Fedotenko (back spasms) cannot play this evening.
