AROUND THE WEB
Hamrlik brings balance to the force.
Last night, Roman Hamrlik made his Rangers debut just hours after being claimed off waivers. Harmlik did not register a point, he was not on the ice for any goals, and he only recorded one shot on goal and one hit. But, Hamrlik instantly made the Rangers better. Yes, Marc Staal is out, and Hamrlik pretty much represented the only option. But regardless...
The newly-signed Josh Nicholls had a great night last night, scoring two and adding an assist in Saskatoon’s 6-3 win over Medicine Hat in the WHL. Both of Nicholls’ goals came shorthanded, and he assisted on the Blades’ first goal of the game. On the season, Nicholls has a line of 44-34-78 in 67 games. He is currently on a two-game multi-point streak (3-2-5 in the last two...
Peter Ceresnak, the Rangers 6th round pick in 2011, was the only prospect in action last night for the Rangers. Ceresnak’s Peterborough Petes of the OHL defeated the Kingston Frontenacs by a score of 4-1. Ceresnak was held off the scoreboard, but finished the game with a +1 rating. On the season Ceresnak, who is not a noted scorer, has a line of 1-8-9 in 52 games, but is also sporting...
NEW YORK — Doctors are optimistic that New York Rangers defenseman Marc Staal will recover fully after being struck in the eye by a deflected puck.
Staal was injured Tuesday night in the third period of New York’s 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. The 26-year-old defenseman will be sidelined indefinitely but was already showing improvement on Wednesday, the Rangers said...
Larry Brooks at the New York Post says that the Rangers’ waiver claim of defenseman Roman Hamrlik will make a contract offer to Mats Zuccarello more problematic.
Under league rules, each organization can only have 50 players under contract. Hamrlik represented the Rangers 49th player. Which means if the Blueshirts sign Zuccarello, they could be severely hamstrung at the trade...
Islanders assistant coach Brent Thompson was given a two-game suspension by the NHL on Friday for abusive comments he made following New York's overtime loss to the New York Rangers on Thursday night.
Thompson was assessed a game misconduct after the Rangers beat the Islanders with a power-play goal by Marian Gaborik.
The NHL said in a statement that Thompson will miss the...
Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- TSN's Bob McKenzie spoke Wednesday evening during Insider Trading on Ottawa's front office actively searching for an upgrade to their ranks. The upgrade, however, is absolutely hilarious. McKenzie: OTT looking for a physical player, preferably one who can drop the gloves with some authority. Lloyd: @TSNBobMcKenzie just said #Sens are in the...

Rangers and the Islanders played a tight game before Rangers won in OT
The Rangers beat the Islanders 2-1 in overtime, in a game that was a goaltending duel and in a game that was well contested by both teams. Both clubs had chances, both clubs played relatively well in all three zones but in the end it was the Rangers improving powerplay that was the difference. We discussed earlier...

Michael St. Croix (Andy Devlin)
After a terrible Tuesday, Wednesday night only had 3 prospects of the New York Rangers and New York Islanders but one prospect on his own had one really good day. To start his Wednesday, Michael St. Croix (NYR 2011 4th) found out that he was named "CHL Player of the Week" for the week ending on March 3rd.
The current "WHL player...
Well, it would be a lie to claim that it was the best, or best executed performance of the season for the Rangers. Sometimes you have to work with the hand you're dealt. The Rangers put in a performance tonight that the 2011-2012 team would have been proud of. The team put in a full 60 minute effort tonight, limiting mistakes and tempering frustration, which could have easily...
This is exactly the case when it comes to the New York Rangers.
So far this season, the team has relied on players such as Rick Nash, Marian Gaborik, Ryan Callahan, Carl Hagelin, and Derek Stepan to put the puck in the net. While those five players have scored a combined 36 goals this season, the rest of the team's offense is nowhere to be found.
Do you remember when Rangers...
That is what the New York Rangers hope to do tonight on Long Island when they take on the New York Islanders.
The Blueshirts have won three straight games and have done so with timely goal scoring, solid defense and great goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist. Tonight against the Islanders, the Rangers will need those same three things to pick-up their fourth straight win.
