Rangers-coach-tortorella
The road to John Tortorella’s doghouse is paved with brutal sound bytes. “I’ve said all along that I think Chris [Kreider] has a lot to learn about the game and a lot to learn about being a pro, so this isn’t a shock to me,” the Rangers coach said when the rookie was returned to [...]

  • I said last year torts will ruin this kid, after all he is a big man and napolean wont have any of that.Tell me pyatt who scored 3 goals very early in season and 1 more after 20 or so games is an upgrade over krieder.Just let the kid play with out being afraid if he makes a mistake he will sit the rest of the game, and you will have the kid who came up at the toughest time of year and was a star.who ******* ares about his system when the kid could be a 50 goal scorer every year. they said same about mike bossy and I am pretty sure he had a decent career.

Is Lundqvist Vezina worthy again?

Bennett/Getty Although he has been criticized –especially early in the season– and he is without a shutout (yet), could Henrik Lundqvist quietly have moved into the Vezina candidates once again, this season? With Craig Anderson and his other worldly numbers surely out of contention because a lack of games (16 games is surely not enough to warrant consideration), Lundqvist has...

Why Isn't Brian Boyle Sleeping?

During last night's telecast of the Rangers 3-2 shootout win against the Maple Leafs, Joe Micheletti mentioned that Brian Boyle has been dealing with some kind of sleeping disorder. He went on to mention it again during the post game as he gave credit to Boyle for playing so well despite this malady. After Micheletti reiterated his Boyle comments during Rangers Extra...

Staal Skates; Miller to Whale

So, apparently while I was renovating my bathroom there was some Rangers news. None bigger than Marc Staal reporting that he has begun skating for the first time since being sidelined by a puck to the eye on March 5th. Staal, who took the ice for the first time yesterday and again today, said this about the injury (via Blueshirts United)... "The first night the eye looked...

Rick Nash is Very Good

It’s been a while since New York has had a dynamic power-forward like Rick Nash.  The most recent comparison is Jaromir Jagar from his 52 goal performance in the ’05/’06 season.  Nash is not only a prolific scorer, but his 6’4″ 215 pound frame makes him nearly impossible to defend.  With 17 goals and 18 assists Nash is playing at a perfect point per game pace.  The...

Fast Has Lower Body Injury; McIlrath Fights

Jesper Fast missed his second straight game due to a lower body injury Sunday night, as the CT Whale lost to the Providence Bruins 1-0. ...sort of an inauspicious start to Fast's pro career. Let's hope this doesn't become a trend as sadly Fast has had issues staying healthy in the past, including a gruesome foot injury last season and a shoulder issue earlier this...

Young Sharks fan pretty upset team traded Ryane Clowe to the Rangers (video)

These videos are pretty much a dime a dozen: Young child is upset about some disappointing outcome related to their favorite sports team, parent sticks camera in the distraught child’s face to capture their agony and then uploads said video to YouTube for the world to see. Not much new ground is covered in the “Exploiting a Child’s Sports-Related Misery” department with this...

Staal's Vision Still Blurry, Needs to Work on Depth Perception

Katie Strang at ESPN.com reports that after skating for a third straight day, Marc Staal says that while his peripheral vision is fine, his eyesight is still blurry and he needs to work on depth perception for reads on plays in tight. Strang also notes that Staal also found it helpful reaching out to Dany Heatley, Colin White and Manny Malhotra, who each suffered similar eye...

Game 40 Open Thread: Leafs at Rangers

Nathan Denette/AP After Monday night’s sloppy loss in Toronto, the Rangers are looking to exact revenge on the Leafs tonight in the series finale at The Garden. There is a lot at stake tonight for the Rangers, who are sitting in the 8th spot in the East. They trail the Islanders by two points (with a game in hand), and are tied with Winnipeg (with two games in hand). A win tonight...

Rangers Earn 2 Crucial Points

New York - Last night the New York Rangers earned two crucial points in their 3-2 shootout victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.  The Rangers bounced back beautifully after their defeat to the Maple Leafs on Monday in the first part of the home & home series.  Last night, the defensive effort was palpable, and the sense of urgency throughout the lineup was on display. After...

Henrik Lundqvist Named 3rd Star of the Week

Henrik looks to be returning to his Vezina Trophy winning form from a season ago.  This is perfect timing as the rest of the New York Rangers as a whole seem to be following suit.  The team has steadily become more consistent showing signs reminiscent of last year’s Atlantic Division Champions.  The Rangers have always relied heavily on Lundqvist to win big games for them...

Marc Staal Talks Visors

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail, If he had to do it all over again, Marc Staal would have been wearing a visor when a shot by Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Kimmo Timonen crashed into his right eye on Mar. 5. While he was fortunate to escape a career-threatening eye injury, the New York Rangers defenceman suffered facial fractures and still does not know when he can...

Rangers take 3 out or 4 points

Pittsburgh- The New York Rangers simply ran into a goalie suddenly turned hot. With a 2-1 shootout loss tonight to the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Rangers managed to gain 3 out of a possible 4 points in a home and home series versus the number one team in the Eastern Conference. They might not have had that same offensive fire-power they showed in Wednesday’s 6-1 route of the Penguins...

Rangers Fall Short in Toronto

Toronto- The New York Rangers fell short tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3.  Playing their fourth game in six nights, the Rangers ran into a fresher Toronto club that was able to take the first game in a home & home series.  After holding both the Penguins (twice) and the Hurricanes to two goals or fewer, the four goals allowed tonight was only the third time all...
