Found November 11, 2013 on Ranger Nation:
The Panthers fought hard throughout this game but they couldn’t distinguish the flame under the surging Rangers. The Blueshirts defeat the Florida Panthers and hand them their 9th straight game. First period, both teams played an evenly fast paced game. The Blueshirts scored first when JT Miller netted a beauty of a goal, assisted by […]

Could Chris Kreider force his way into the Calder reckoning?

Is Kreider a Calder candidate? It’s come a year later than expected but Chris Kreider is finally making his own way as a New York Ranger. During the Rangers recent stretch of good form, Kreider has arguably been the biggest physical force on the ice for the Rangers using his body to great effect on countless occasions. He’s been producing offense, getting under countless opponents’...

New York Rangers complete second winning week in a row

When the Rangers returned home two weeks ago after spending nearly a month on the road, their season had already reached a crossroads. They were 3-6 but beginning to compete, and with seven of their next nine games at home, it was high time to start banking some wins. Eight games into the homestand, the Rangers have done exactly what they needed to do to breathe life back into this...

New York Rangers: Rick Nash eyes return date soon

It was a night to forget for the New York Rangers. In only the third game of the 2013-14 NHL season, the Blueshirts suffered an embarrassing 9-2 defeat in San Jose against the Sharks. In the 1st period of a…Read more →The post New York Rangers: Rick Nash eyes return date soon appeared first on The Hockey Daily.

Nash to practice with Rangers on Wednesday

After an hour-long spin on the Madison Square Garden ice, New York Rangers forward Rick Nash is ready to practice with his teammates and could rejoin the lineup soon. Nash skated for the fourth straight day on Tuesday and remained symptom-free from a concussion sustained Oct. 8 at San Jose. He still needs work on his conditioning before he can play in a game, but Rangers coach...

Young Talents Failure to Develop Sooner Doomed Dineen

In the “what-have-you-done-for-me-lately” world of sports it should be no surprise that the Florida Panthers dismissed head coach Kevin Dineen along with two of his assistants Friday. After improbably leading a roster built mostly through free agency and the trade acquisitions of expensive veterans to a Southeast Division championship in 2012 it looked like Florida had found...

Panthers’ Scott Gomez misses third game in a row with groin

It was thought that the Florida Panthers were not playing Scott Gomez because of his poor play as of late. But as it turns out he has missed the last three games due to a groin injury and is considered to be day to day. All this according to the Miami Heralds George Richards. The 33 year old Gomez, in 15 games thus far has just four points. Most came early on in the season, as his...

Rangers finally jump over .500 mark with 4-3 win over Panthers

Let’s stipulate Sunday’s 4-3 victory over the Panthers at the Garden will never see the light of day in a Rangers Classic Marathon on MSG Network, but at the same time, let’s recognize there is no such thing as a bad two points in the NHL. “We’ll take every win we can get,” Dan Girardi said after the Blueshirts bounded over .500 at 9-8 with their sixth victory in their...

Malcolm Subban Engages Scott Stajcer in Goalie Fight During Providence Bruins’ 6-0 Win Over Hartford Wolfpack

In case the Dolphins and Buccaneers aren’t enough to make Monday any better, now you have something to watch on repeat to get you through the work day. Two words: goalie fight. Apparently young Malcolm Subban is quickly learning how to capture the hearts of Boston fans. With Providence already leading 5-0 late in the third period Sunday, things got chippy. The second fight of the...

Panthers Goaltending Saga Continues—Markstrom sent down

This past Summer, I kept looking at the Panthers lineup and wondered what they were going to do with their goaltending. After they let Jose Theodore go, I expected something to happen, whether it was trading for a goaltender, or finding another goalie in Europe to add to the mix. Even after Dale Tallon signed Tim Thomas, it still felt like the Panthers were looking for a more permanent...

Jan Levine: Game 17: NYR 4 FLA 3, Uneven Performance in W, Kreider Suspension Looming?

It was uneven. There were stretches that they were outplayed by Florida. But in a contest that Henrik Lundqvist tabbed as a "must-win game," the Rangers did just enough to eke out a 4-3 win over the Panthers on Sunday. Game Highlights: It was a mixed bag, as several players stood out, some good, some bad. Chris Kreider was in each side of the ledger. His forechecking...

The weekly NHL Index: 11-11-13

Biggest Story of the week Kevin Dineen led the Florida Panthers to the playoffs two seasons ago.  This week he was fired along with his assistant coaches Craig Ramsay and Gord Murphy.  Replacing Dineen is Peter Horachek, who coached the Panthers’ AHL affiliate.  John  Madden and Brian Skrudland will be the new assistants.  This wasn’t a shocking change by any means. ...

Panthers send goalie Markstrom to AHL

Tim Thomas‘ return to the Florida Panthers net meant either Scott Clemmensen or Jacob Markstrom was going to be headed to the minor leagues. This time around, youth doesn’t prevail. The Panthers sent Markstrom back to AHL San Antonio and for the 23-year-old Swede it may be a blessing in disguise.

Game 17: The trap game

Photo: AP A team riding a 5-1 streak over six games, facing one of the worst teams in the league that just fired its entire coaching staff? Yea, this is the definition of a trap game. For the Rangers, this is the first of two remaining games against bad teams (Tuesday against the Devils being the second) before they play three straight against playoff-bound teams. At 8-8, a win tonight...

Streaking Rangers beat Florida, finally over .500

Photo by Scott Levy/NHLI via Getty Images The Rangers are finally over .500 for the first time this season. Riding a 6-1 stretch, the Rangers held on against the Florida Panthers for a 4-3 win. The Rangers played well this game, but so did the Panthers, who gave the Rangers fits through the first two periods. It wasn’t until a costly turnover and a converted 5-on-3 that the Rangers...

Senators outlast Panthers 3-2 for third straight win

Tim Thomas arrived in Ottawa as an almost mythical figure – The Goalie the Senators Couldn’t Solve. By the end of his team’s 3-2 loss at the Canadian Tire Centre, he probably wished he’d spent the afternoon at the hotel watching Duck Dynasty. Thomas probably played well enough to win, but Florida’s punchless power play (0-for-5) and haphazard defensive play was too much...
