In a bit of a surprising move, the Rangers have traded forward Brandon Mashinter to the Chicago Blackhawks for forward Kyle Beach. Mashinter. In ten total games with the Rangers over two seasons, Mashinter was held off the score sheet with ten PIMS. With Hartford this year, Mash had a line of 1-6-7 in 11 games with 15 PIMs.
Beach, currently with the Rockford Icedogs of the AHL, has a line of 4-0-4 in 7 games. Beach has no NHL experience.
This is a very minor move, as neither had much NHL experience. It is worth noting that Beach is a right handed shot. He will report to Hartford.

Per Larry Brooks, Benoit Pouliot’s time in the lineup has come to an end. The recently recalled J.T. Miller will take his spot in the lineup, skating with Derick Brassard and Carl Hagelin. The other lineup change is Justin Falk in for Michael Del Zotto. It appears Alain Vigneault is matching Del Zotto and Falk based on opposition. The Devils have a little more snarl in the lineup...
Per the Rangers Twitter feed, Derek Dorsett will be out tonight with a lingering wrist issue. Taylor Pyatt will return to the lineup in Dorsett’s place. Also, AV noted an unspecified defenseman is banged up and the defensemen will be a game time decision. We can speculate all we want, but we know it isn’t John Moore that is banged up, since AV confirmed he will return tonight...
You hate to say an 82-game season that stretches from October to April can be defined by nine games in December. You are taught to avoid such inflated talk. But the New York Rangers, who begin a nine-game homestand Saturday against the Devils, may well see their fate determined in the coming weeks.
When the team began the season with nine games on the road – the first five out...
Rangers GM Glen Sather has taken a lot of flak over the years – and deservedly so – for handing out contracts both imprudent and lavish. He dipped deep into the team’s well again to extend goalie Henrik Lundqvist, but this time, Sather was justified.
This was the right move. The only move, really. For the team can afford to pay Lundqvist $59 million over the next seven years...
It’s as if saying the words “five hundred” around the Rangers nowadays is akin to cursing.
That’s because the Blueshirts have spent just about the past month hovering around that line of mediocrity, with wins and losses evening out in equal fashion and keeping them from separating themselves as either a good team or a bad one.
“Good teams need to string winning streaks...

Now that all the hemming and hawing over Henrik Lundqvist’s contract situation has been completed, Cam Talbot’s future has been an oft-discussed topic. Whatever you may think about the specific details of the contract, Hank is going to be manning the pipes at the Garden until 2020-2021.
This brings us back to Talbot. His emergence this season as a...
Blackhawks center Michal Handzus is set to play against the Anaheim Ducks after missing two games with an illness.
The 36-year-old Handzus was sidelined by an upper-body injury earlier in the season. He has one goal and three assists in 13 games.
While Handzus is ready to return, forwards Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell have been ruled out for Friday night's game. Shaw (upper...
NEW YORK — The New York Rangers have a goalie for life. On Wednesday, goalie Henrik Lundqvist agreed to a seven-year, $59.5 million extension with the Rangers. Currently in his final year of a six-year, $41.25 million deal, he is set to become the highest paid goalie in the NHL beginning next season. ”There were […]
Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said Friday he was unsure whether forward Teuvo Teravainen would play in the NHL later this season.
The 19-year-old Teravainen signed a three-year contract with the Blackhawks in August. He is currently playing for Jokerit in the SM-liiga. He could play for the Blackhawks this season after he's finished with his season in Finland...
Henrik Lundqvist has recently signed an extension worth 8.5 million dollars a year to continue stopping pucks for the Rangers. What would such debonair a man do with that kind of change? Thats 55.2 million Swedish Kroners!

Last spring, the Chicago Blackhawks disposed of the Minnesota Wild in five games of the first-round playoff series on their way to the Stanley Cup championship.
With the Blackhawks now a Central Division rival in the realigned NHL, the Wild have their hands full. But they've clearly closed the gap.

The New York Rangers' recent struggles at Madison Square Garden can be traced to last month's meeting with the New Jersey Devils.
Henrik Lundqvist and Rick Nash could be key to avenging that defeat.
The stars look to get the Rangers untracked at home while helping them avoid a third straight defeat to the Devils for the first time in almost five years Saturday night.
The Chicago Blackhawks aren't panicking after dropping three consecutive games. A chance to face an Eastern Conference team, especially one they've dominated lately, might get them back on track.
Chicago will try to add to its 7-0-2 record against the East this season by earning a fifth straight win over the Florida Panthers on Sunday night.
After suffering back-to-back...
