The Rangers lost a tough one tonight, 4-3 to the Lightning in overtime. The Blueshirts looked tired and we generally outplayed by Tampa for the better part of the game. Henrik Lundqvist played very well and Brandon Dubinsky made a return to the score sheet. No one likes to lose but there were definitely some positive takeaways from this one. To the bullets…
Tampa came out strong in the 1st, outshooting the Rangers 13-3 at one point. Henrik Lundqvist was very sharp early, weathering the storm until the Rangers could put one on the scoreboard.
Artem Anisimov did just that with a nice quick shot past Garon’s stick side. 1-0 Rangers.
Dubinsky didn’t play a whole lot in the first period, paired on a line with Rupp and Scott. I do remember noticing how hard he was working along the walls creating pressure from the big 4th line.
McDonagh took another penalty that the MSG cameras didn’t have a camera on.
The Rangers started the 2nd killing McDonagh’s penalty but...

To say Brandon Dubinsky is having an off-year would be an understatement. Outside of his boneheaded penalties of late, most focus on his anemic goal total and his offensive contribution, and with good reason. Dubinsky is making $4.2 million for the next three seasons following the 2011-2012 campaign, and he has contributed just seven goals and 26 points in 60 games this year.
Henrik Lundqvist may be the most popular candidate so far for the Vezina Trophy.
And it’s no surprise with his eight shutouts, and being on the leader board for wins (4th-30), save percentage (1st-.939) and goals against (2nd-1.79).
Henrik Lundqvist is having a career season in a pursuit for the Vezina Trophy. Does he compare to John Vanbiesbrouck's 1986 playoff...
Arun MoraceHenrik “The King” Lundqvist and Tim “The Tank” Thomas are arguably the two best goaltenders in the National Hockey League right now. Lundqvist has long been the backbone of the New York Rangers. Anyone who sits down to watch a Rangers game on television will quickly get used to hearing the phrase “Save! By Lundqvist!” [...]Sports-Kings - The Kings of Sports Lists
Yesterday I was a guest on the "A Gal For All Seasons" podcast and discussed Henrik Lundqvist, the trade deadline, how I became a Rangers fan and much more with host Taryn "The Coop" Cooper (I'm on at the 24:15 mark)...

Before last night's game, John Tortorella was still fuming about Brandon Dubinsky's stick throwing stunt Thursday night saying this (via Bergen Record)..."I thought it was, quite honestly, just a ridiculous penalty, at a time of the season, when you've got 20 games left that we need to be working on other things as far as details than that nonsense. And, quite honestly...

That is the case this afternoon for the New York Rangers as they get set to take on the Boston Bruins at Madison Square Garden.
The Rangers are coming off a 4-3 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night in Tampa. The Rangers were able to come away with a point because Brandon Dubinsky scored the game-tying goal with 3:27 to play in the third period.
Up until that...
February was certainly a kind month to the Rangers, especially goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.
With starting netminder Henrik Lundqvist given the night off, and team captain Ryan Callahan, out day-to-day with a bruised foot, back-up goaltender Martin Biron needed to give the New York Rangers a strong start against the Carolina Hurricanes, especially considering the way he had played in his last few starts.
As it turned out, Biron came up big for the Blueshirts in a 3-2 victory...

The New York Rangers will be in Raleigh tonight to take on the Carolina Hurricanes as the team looks to extend its winning streak to three games.
The Blueshirts are coming off a 2-0 shutout win over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night at Madison Square Garden. The team allowed just 13 shots in Henrik Lundqvist’s eighth shutout of the season, which is just two more than their...
Game day started well for the Rangers as Michael Del Zotto and Ruslan Fedotenko were both restored to the line-up to face the Bruins in the nationally televised matinee. Following that good news was a dandy of a match between two quality clubs. The Rangers were outplayed for two periods but stuck with it, refused to buckle and have a certain goaltender from Sweden in net. The Rangers...
The New York Rangers have held first place in the Eastern Conference for several months now, and the Boston Bruins have trailed them in second place for the entire time. Within that span the two teams have met twice at TD Garden in Boston, and the Rangers came away victorious in both. The four points collected in those two wins have come in handy for the Blueshirts...
The Rangers defeated the Carolina Hurricanes, 3-2, last night in Raleigh to improve to 41-15-6 on the season and earn their 88th point in the Eastern Conference standings. With 62 games now in the books after Thursday's victory, only 20 remain on the regular season schedule as the Blueshirts get closer and closer to clinching a playoff spot. Tonight they will be looking...
