As predicted here, Sean Avery has been waived by the Rangers. This is a salary cap move, as Avery and his $1.9 million salary needs to be cleared, especially if he’s not even playing.
We covered this here, here, here, here, and here. I’m actually incredibly sick of this topic. Avery has become bigger than the team, which is impressive considering he’s a fourth liner. He barely...
Episode 3 of "HBO 24/7 Flyers Rangers: Road To The NHL Winter Classic" was a combination of on-ice rivalries (featuring often hilarious chirping of opponents) and off-ice holiday gatherings among family, friends and teammates. Teammates in ugly, ugly sweaters.
The highlight of the episode in the latter category was the New York Rangers' ugly sweater party. Do not adjust...

The New York Rangers bounced back from Wednesday’s 4-1 loss
against Washington with a 4-1 win over the Florida Panthers Friday night. New York grabbed control of the game from the
start and with the win retook first place in the Eastern Conference, one point
of the idle Boston Bruins. The Rangers
will have the next two days off before hitting the ice Monday in Bridgestone...
In a game that could have been easily overlooked in the wake of the Winter Classic on Monday, the Rangers took it to the Panthers 4-1 in their final tune-up before heading to Philly. After a rocky outing against the Caps, the Rangers bounced back and played a very smart game and grabbed a little momentum to take to Citizens Bank Park. Onto the bullets…

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Carl Hagelin had a goal and an assist, Henrik Lundqvist stopped 27 shots, and the Rangers earned a 4-1 victory against the Florida Panthers on Friday night.

The New York Rangers (22-9-4) defeated the Florida Panthers (19-12-7) by the score of 4-1, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports....unreal start to the game for the Blueshirts, but looked like the team started focusing on the Winter Classic as soon as they built the 3-0 lead and relied on Hank to take this one home. Can't blame them but I hate seeing...
Carl Hagelin had a goal and an assist, Henrik Lundqvist stopped 27 shots, and the New York Rangers earned a 4-1 victory against the Florida Panthers on Friday.
The sizzling New York Rangers will take aim at a sixth straight victory when they visit the Washington Capitals for tonight's clash at the Verizon Center.
That is exactly what the New York Rangers were last night in their 4-1 loss to the Washington Capitals.
The team was not terrible but they certainly were not great either. This was a game that with better defensive coverage and less turnovers could have easily been a much better game for the Blueshirts.
What was interesting to see was how the Capitals played. Their team certainly...
