Shocker. Rangers get shut out, bunch of you break your ankles jumping off the bandwagon; many demanding a scorer be added (and some demanding the coach be fired … for real).
Think about it, though. The Rangers have really squeaked out a lot of wins lately—the goal with 0.1 left in Phoenix; the comeback and the late penalty shot-stop in the Winter Classic; the OT win over the Panthers last week; the shootout win against the Coyotes Tuesday. In those games they barely scored enough. Last night, it’s 1-0, and they didn’t score enough. Or at all. That it ended up 3-0, I think, is meaningless. And four of their 10 regulation losses have now come via shutout.
Still, best mid-season records in 40 years. So it really is ridiculous to co...

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...
The National Hockey League will be announcing the remaining participants for the 2012 All-Star weekend in Ottawa later today. There are two Rangers that most definitely will be on the list when it comes up, and those are goaltender Henrik Lundqvist and winger Marian Gaborik. Both players have had tremendous seasons at the midway point and are main reasons why their team leads the...
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...
The NHL announced the remaining All-Star Game roster with Henrik Lundqvist, Marian Gaborik and Dan Girardi selected to the team....we may have lost the NHL All Star voting battle with Girardi, but we won the war with this announcement....congrats to all three.Carl Hagelin, who was expected to participate as a rookie, was not chosen....would have been great to see him in the fastest...
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...
The New York Rangers' divisive pest Sean Avery continues to toil with the Connecticut Whale of the AHL, despite two NHL teams requesting his services via re-entry waivers according to Larry Brooks of the New York Post.
Ah, therein lies the problem: The Rangers would carry about $2 million in dead cap space for the rest of the season if Avery's claimed by another team. The...
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 »
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...
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...

Erik Christensen consented immediately to a maximum two-week AHL conditioning stint when John Tortorella suggested it Tuesday morning.
Rick Carpiniello’s Rangers Report Chat
That is what the New York Rangers will be looking to do tonight against the hot Ottawa Senators.
The Blueshirts have won five in a row and are currently playing a great brand of hockey. The club is getting timely goal scoring, great defense and excellent goaltending from both Henrik Lundqvist and Martin Biron.
The team is also showing that they can win hockey games in many different...
