John Tortorella wasn't happy with the New York Rangers' latest effort, and isn't pleased with their struggling power play. The coach may be able to find some solace in his club's success on the road. The Rangers attempt to match their longest road winning streak of the season when they face the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night. New York (27-10-4) has won 10 of 12 overall and remains atop the Eastern Conference, but Tortorella wasn't pleased after Thursday's 3-0 loss to Ottawa, which ended a five-game winning streak. "I think this team takes pride in trying no matter what happens," Tortorella said. "I don't think the try was there in a number of people. I'm not going to name them. I just don't think there was. "Effort is something that can be controlled every day. That's what we trust in our team, and I still do. We've got a good team here, and I think they'll answer the proper way, but we're not going ...

Rangers Refuse to Give Sean Avery Up Despite Interest Being Shown Around League

It's been several weeks now since the New York Rangers placed forward Sean Avery on waivers and later assigned him to the Connecticut Whale of the AHL, where he is playing now. Being that it was the second time the Blueshirts had put Sean through this process, many, myself included, felt that they should have put him out of his misery and sent him to another organization within...

Pregame: Rangers Seek Improvement Against Leafs

The New York Rangers cannot win every game on their schedule, and everyone knows that, but Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators at Madison Square Garden was unacceptable. By climbing to the top of the standings with repeated winning streaks, the Rangers have set the expectations ultra high for themselves this season. Therefore, losing a game in which they had opportunity...

Better Relief Celebration: Boyle or Dubinsky?

During last night's 3-0 Rangers victory over Toronto, Brian Boyle scored his first goal in 22 games and celebrated by looking to the heavens and giving thanks (video here)...Which was very reminiscent of Brandon Dubinsky's celebration after waiting 15 games to score his first goal of the season (video here)......so the question is, who had the better relief goal celebration...

Lundqvist, Gaborik, Girardi named All-Stars

Not that I ever doubted you guys. In the poll over there————> you figured out way before the NHL did which Rangers should be all-stars. Good job. The NHL today announced that Henrik Lundqvist, Marian Gaborik and Dan Girardi were all selected for the all-star game in Ottawa Jan. 29. They will be joined there by coach John Tortorella. Not a bad showing for the No. 1 team...

Hank, Gabby, Girardi Headed to All Star Game

Did Sean Avery Spit On His Minor League Hockey Coach?

Sean Avery, now playing for the Connecticut Whale in the AHL, was a healthy scratch last night for what the Rangers are calling "disciplinary reasons." It remains unclear, however, what required the discipline. The rumor spreading on Twitter is that he was benched for spitting on his coach. More »

Senators 3, Rangers 0

The New York Rangers (27-10-4) lost to the Ottawa Senators (24-15-6) by the score of 3-0, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports....as I said earlier today, I didn't have a good feeling about this one. Ottawa has lots of team speed which seems to give the Rangers problems (see Toronto). Didn't think the Rangers played all that bad, but...

Rangers-Canadiens Preview

The New York Rangers supplied more than enough offense to bounce back from their first defeat of the new year. They hope that sort of production continues at Montreal, where goals have been hard to come by for the Rangers in recent years. Having been shut out in their last two road games against the Canadiens and mired in a five-game losing streak at the Bell Centre, the Rangers...

Biron makes 20 saves, Rangers beat Maple Leafs 3-0

New York backup Martin Biron made 20 saves, and the Rangers bounced back from a streak-busting loss to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-0 on Saturday night.

Game 45: Habs/Rangers

Following a tough shootout loss at home last night, the Canadiens welcome (begrudgingly) the New York Rangers to town who are fresh off of a 3-0 victory against the Maple Leafs. Marty Biron started in net (and played fantastically), which will leave the Habs to face Lundqvist. I guess Torterella wasn’t about to start Biron in Montreal after the 4-0 victory Montreal scored earlier...
