New York Rangers
The list can go on and on when talking about what's went wrong with the New York Rangers so far this season, but when you look at everything as a collective whole, there's one aspect of their game that is missing that has stood out to me the most; their identity. This year's Rangers have been far from the Black and Blueshirts squad we saw exceed expectations in 2010-11, which wasn't supposed to be the plan going into the season despite the new influx of players that were brought it one way or another. They may only be 2-2-2, but this team has not played great hockey much this season. They need to turn things around and the best way to go about executing that is to regain their identity.
Yesterday in practice head coach John Tortorella had the team work on "a little bit of everything" in preparation for their match with the Winnipeg Jets tonight. That tells me that he has seen flaws in every area of his team's game, which he should, and that everythin...

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 [...]
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...

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...
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...

With the New York Rangers offense struggling to generate
consistently, as usual, to start the season the focus has shifted to specific
players who are underachieving. The main
player seeming to take the brunt of the discussion is Brandon Dubinsky, who has
zero goals in the Rangers opening six games.

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...

Ryan Callahan scored the game-winner in the third period as the New York Rangers took a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.
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...
The New York Rangers still are not playing well by any
stretch of the imagination, but a Ryan Callahan power play goal at 8:41 of the
third period and 27 saves from Martin Biron were enough to give them a 2-1 win
over the Winnipeg Jets. The Rangers
wrapped up a seven-game road trip with a solid 3-2-2 record including a 3-1
trip to Western Canada. We can focus on
