Rangers Being Out-Ranger'd by Capitals

It is one thing to prepare to defend the opposition's plan of attack. It is an entirely different challenge to defend that team's plan of attack when it is a carbon copy of your own. This is the mind-boggling predicament the New York Rangers currently find themselves in four games deep into the Eastern Conference Semifinals.  It was a pre-known fact that the Dale Hunter...

Knuble Wants To Remove The ‘Asterisk”

from Scott Burnside of ESPN, Somewhere in a safety deposit box in Michigan sit Mike Knuble’s two Stanley Cup rings. He gets them out to show the kids at his summer hockey camp every year.

Notes: Why The Rangers Power Play Is Important and More

  Just when I thought the Rangers power play would never get another goal, they got two. And it wasn’t just any two power play goals — one tied the game with six seconds left and the second won it in overtime. What’s funny to me is I was planning to write about the “Curse [...]

The Garden Was Loud Last Night

Pat Leonard at the Daily News has this quote from Ryan Callahan about the atmosphere in the Garden during the final minute..."Twenty seconds left, they're standing up chanting, 'Let's Go Rangers.'

Partisan Officiating Shouldn't Come as a Surprise

The 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs have been unpredictable from every aspect imaginable.

The Coach Talks
