Blueshirts United has these quotes from the Rangers new top line on their play last night...Brad Richards...We found each other tonight. (Gaborik and Hagelin) skate so good so if I can get just a little time with the puck I can throw it into areas and they jump on it, just like tonight. It forces me to play with pace, and I have to keep up with them.Marian Gaborik...It's a lot of fun when you can put up a lot of scoring chances like we did, and score goals, important goals. When we are doing that we are not spending a lot of time in our zone, which is good, too. We just have to build on this.Carl Hagelin...It's a lot of fun just being able to play with those two guys, and creating a lot of chances together is also a lot of fun. Obviously it could have been intimidating for me playing with those two guys, but I saw it as an exciting opportunity instead.For the defining play of the line last night, click the "Read More" tab below. And to me the defining play of t...

It's Brad Richards Time

Free agent acquisition Brad Richards hasn't exactly had the season most of us expected him to. Do not translate that to mean he hasn't played well, though, because that hasn't been the case. After all, Richards has 21 goals and 50 points in 68 games played so far with the Rangers. I've always said that any player who can reach the 20-goal mark has a skill set in...

Callahan and Del Zotto Remain Out, Torts on Richards-Gaborik Chemistry

The New York Rangers held practice earlier today at their practice facility following last night's 4-3 overtime win against the Islanders, and according to Andrew Gross of Ranger Rants, neither captain Ryan Callahan (bruised foot) nor defenseman Michael Del Zotto (hip) participated. Neither suited up for Sunday's tilt with the Isles, either, so it's looking like they...

Postgame: Top Line Carries Rangers to Fourth Win Over Canes This Season

Quick, come to The Rangers Tribune for your psychic readings before time runs out! For those of you who don’t quite get what’s going on here, I devoted an entire article this morning to the recent formation of the new first line for the Rangers, keying in on Brad Richards and his ability to up his game at this time of year. Well, it just so happens that Richie and linemates...

Recap: Rangers v. Carolina

The Rangers got the better of the Carolina Hurricanes by a score of 4-2 at The Garden tonight.  The Blueshirts were led by an unbelievable performance from the newly formed Hagelin-Richards-Gaborik line, resulting in all four Rangers goals and extended puck possession and pressure for the entire game.  Let’s get to those bullets… 1st period The Rangers got off to a strong...

NEW YORK (AP) -- Brad Richards scored twice and Martin Biron, a last-minute replacement for Henrik Lundqvist, made 27 saves as the New York Rangers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Tuesday.

Rangers Enjoying Home Stand

Dave Lozo at NHL.com reports that the Rangers players are excited about their unusual seven game homestand.Brad Richards..."To be honest, we don't usually like playing that many in a row at home because sometimes it'll get monotonous. But I think the way the schedule worked out with the amount of travel at the start of the year and the three games we lost, it's...

Practice Notes: No Cally, Del Zotto; Zuccarello In Tomorrow; Richards/Gabby Chemistry

The Rangers report that neither Ryan Callahan (foot) nor Michael Del Zotto (hip) participated in this morning's practice....well that's not good. With them not practicing today, I'd be shocked if either one of them was in the line-up tomorrow vs. Carolina.Meanwhile, John Tortorella believes Mats Zuccarello will be back in the line-up tomorrow night, adding this about...

Dubinsky’s biggest problem

No, it isn’t Carl Hagelin although that’s a pretty big issue for Dubinsky right now. Dubinsky is clearly the forgotten man in the Rangers offense right now. No, Brandon Dubinsky’s biggest problem this season is consistency. Anyone that watched the Islanders game will have seen Dubinsky strong on the puck, his line generate plenty of chances and all round, the line  – led...

Musings: The Playoff and Penguin Edition

Good morning Thursday people. Apparently this is the morning where you’ve woken up to the biggest game of the season. Some media darling is skating into the garden today, he’s quite good apparently. Whatever. Here’s a statistic for you: (I bragged about it earlier this year when I was in New York with Dave, the Suit and co.) Sidney Crosby is winless in Penguins games that I...

Bickel is Rangers' Biggest Surprise, Hagelin a Close Second

By Bruce Berlet When it comes to feel-good stories in the NHL this season, you’d be hard-pressed to find one better than New York Rangers defenseman Stu Bickel, who began the season playing on Asylum Street in Hartford. Though Bickel will never be confused with elusive Hall of Famers Bobby Orr or Cheshire-bred Brian Leetch, he has proven to be one of the NHL’s all-time steals...
