Around the Farm: Kreider scores lone goal in Whale loss

Chris Kreider scored the lone goal for the Connecticut Whale in last night’s 3-1 loss to the Manchester Monarchs.

Despite the loss, the Whale are still in good shape to make the Calder Cup playoffs, sitting in the...

Goal breakdown: Rangers steal two on the Island

Mike Stobe/Getty Images In his pre-game interview, John Tortorella was asked “what will it take to win this game?”. His response was that sometimes you can outplay the other guys and still not win.

Rick Nash is Very Good

Henrik Lundqvist Named 3rd Star of the Week

Henrik looks to be returning to his Vezina Trophy winning form from a season ago.  This is perfect timing as the rest of the New York Rangers as a whole seem to be following suit.  The team has steadily become more consistent showing signs reminiscent of last year’s Atlantic Division Champions.  The Rangers have always relied heavily on Lundqvist to win big games for them...
