The New York Rangers recalled forward J.T. Miller from Hartford of the American Hockey League on Thursday. Forward Arron Asham and defenseman Dylan McIlrath were assigned to the Wolf Pack.
Miller, 20, has a goal and an assist in 17 games with the Rangers. Assigned to Hartford on Dec. 9, Miller leads the Wolf Pack with a plus-five rating, and ranks second in goals (seven). He was the Rangers' first-round pick (No. 15) in the 2011 NHL Draft.
BEST OF MAXIM
Tonight the Rangers prepare to take on their New York rivals, the Islanders, as they begin the final third of their season-long nine-game homestand. As has been the norm of late, AV has shuffled the lines at practice suggesting that once again he is trying desperately to find some combination with chemistry that will get […]
Well here we go again with J.T. Miller.
2013 has been nothing if not eventful for the former first-round pick, who, for the past two months, has rode the whims of team management like Disneyworld’s Tower of Terror. Up then down, up then down, up, up, up, and then down once more. And now, for the third time this season, the Rangers have recalled Miller from Hartford with the impulse...
Per Pat Leonard, Alain Vigneault has shaken up the lines at practice in advance of tonight’s game against the Islanders:
Rick Nash-Derek Stepan-Mats Zuccarello
Chris Kreider-Derick Brassard-Carl Hagelin
Brad Richards-J.T. Miller-Benoit Pouliot
Brian Boyle-Dom Moore-Derek Dorsett
Ryan McDonagh-Dan Girardi
John Moore-Anton Stralman
Michael Del Zotto-Justin Falk
Have at it.
One would think that having premium seats on the glass for Wednesday’s New York Rangers-Pittsburgh Penguins tilt at Madison Square Garden would inspire even the most underwhelmed and difficult-to-impress attendee to at least, you know, turn and face the action occurring directly in front of them. But not this young Rangers “fan.” Look at how […]The post Not impressed: Kid...
Kudos to Joe Girardi and Dan Girardi for this one. Definitely worth the watch:
Apparently, neck stiffness isn’t anything Henrik Lundqvist can’t play through.
The Rangers franchise goaltender might not have taken part in an optional practice on Thursday, but coach Alain Vigneault is expecting him to play on Friday night against the Islanders at the Garden, just two days after Lundqvist took an elbow to the head from Penguins forward Chris Kunitz.
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is King.
If this means the Islanders represent the Battle of New York Royalty in the wake of their 5-3 victory over the Rangers at the Garden on Friday night, then so be it, for the position on our town’s hockey throne has been at least temporarily vacated by Henrik Lundqvist....
The New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks revealed their Stadium Series uniforms for their respective outdoor games and they are not good. At least the Rangers had a hysterical video for their jersey reveal, because that’s about the only thing that’s good about it. The dark blue in place of the normal Rangers blue is not a good look, nor is the “chrome” letters on the...
It was a scary moment, one that saw the Rangers season lying on the Garden ice in a heap.
That would be franchise goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who was part of a massive collision with Penguins forward Chris Kunitz early in the overtime period of what would result in a 4-3 shootout win for Pittsburgh.
Kunitz went hard to the net, shot a soft backhand that Lundqvist stopped, and then...
The New York Rangers unveiled their 2014 Stadium Series jersey on Friday, which will be used for outdoor games at Yankee Stadium against the New Jersey Devils on Jan. 26 and versus the New York Islanders on Jan. 29. It’s a white jersey, with a darker blue than what is used on the team’s normal home sweater. Another major difference is the “New York” lettering on the front...
Hockey fans know Henrik Lundqvist for his impeccable sense of style, in addition to his goaltending skills. Lundqvist was recently named to GQ magazines’s “The 25 Most Stylish Men of 2013″ list, just one of his many fashion accolades. His style-centric editorials are numerous, and most recently, the New York Rangers goalie is featured in the December 16th issue of ForbesLife magazine...
The narrative for the first 45 minutes:
You simply had to be in a completely different mind-set to find a game like that entertaining. If you went in with the sole intention of analyzing the play of all of the Pens’ young money, then this game was for you. If you wanted an entertaining hockey game in general, it didn’t fit the bill.
The narrative for the last...
If Heath Ledger’s iconic turn as The Joker in Christopher Nolan’s epic 2008 crime drama “The Dark Knight” has taught us anything, its that as long as everything goes according to plan, everything is fine. Even if the plan is horrifying. When the Flames lose 50+ games this season, nobody panics. When franchise players are flipped for unknown prospects...
This young kid at a New York Rangers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins game is not impressed with the board banging action.
The longest homestand in New York Rangers history is turning into a nightmarish stretch for a club that in recent years has been solid at Madison Square Garden.
Welcoming a team that hasn't played well on the road lately could provide a boost.
New York looks to get on track Sunday night when it hosts the Minnesota Wild, who have dropped six of their last seven away from home...
